Potions master Snape by greyflea Potions master Snape by greyflea
I love Snape; I think he's such an awful teacher, but there's something about him that just makes me laugh. ;) He gets some of the best lines, and I love the desrciptions of him; the way he 'glides' everywhere and has those fantastic black robes. I know he's not strictly evil, but the bad guys are always the best. :D

But honestly, if I'd ever had a teacher like him, he'd have been reported straight away! *laughs* (although I think the worst teacher would have to be Umbridge, hem hem ;D)

We also love Snape at #Spinners--End and appreciate your interpretation. To me it really shows an understanding of the ambiguity Rowling wants us to experience with this complicated 'gift of a character'.
Which is why it's our Feature of the Week. :icongreyheartplz:

I know! Wasn't she awful? Well, I hope so too...it'd be a shame to change him into a full-on bad guy. :| Thanks - one of my rare backgrounds! ;D

you should do them more often then!! it is really good :D :D :dance: I hated umbridge!! i wanted to shove that quill....well..you get the idea ;) :evillaugh: but i don't think snape would ever fully go evil....he is good at heart...even if he is a slytherin *huggles him*

lol, yes, yes he is XD but i have a thing for the 'bad guys' as it seems...c'mon, snape, the centaurs...in my fanfic my character even likes Kreacher!! (which is appauling -sp- due to the fact that she is sirius' sister :paranoid: ) so yeah...bane is cool XD....Firenze gets on my nerves to be honest...which is probably why i do like bane- they are exact opposites :shrug:

Oh yeah, the bad guys are always best! They have more fun. ;) I think all the centaurs are slightly annoying with their "I'm-so-much-more-intelligent-than-thou" attitudes. ;P

Snivellus! XD Yes, he is definetely one of the most wonderful characters within the J.K. Rowling world. :) And then there are Sirius and Remus. :heart:

But this guy has great lines, indeed... and the descriptions.. Remember that part in the Chamber of Secrets where that professor Lockhart was at Valentine feelings and told that perhaps professor Snape will tell something about the love potion... It was hularious...

Hehe, yeah definitely - he has so many quotable lines (none of them nice! ;)) Yes yes, I do remember that! I was disappointed they didn't put it in the film, but I suppose you can't put everything in and keep it under 4 hours! Can't wait for Prisoner of Azkaban - looks hilarious. :D

Oh I know - I mean, I think Gary Oldman's a great actor and all, but NO WAY is he Sirius. Hmmm, I really wanted to know what happened when he fell through that arch/veil thing. I wonder if Ms Rowling will ever reveal that?
Reply
:iconkristiana:
kristiana Featured By Owner May 20, 2004
I don't know... Can't remember what it was called.. that room with the veil.. In Finnish translation it was 'kalmakammari' or something like that and in English that's (freely translated) 'death chamber'.. o_O And after all it is the Department of Mysteries so I think that veil is death. It's the gate between the life and death.. That's what I've been thinking.

:icongreyflea:
greyflea Featured By Owner May 20, 2004
Hmmm, yeah....obviously not something you'd wanna walk through. ;) Such a horrible idea; but I always wondered, what did he exactly die of? What did going through that arch do to him? O.o Maybe it's something that'll go unanswered.

Oh Ms. Grey <Grand Wizard voice> What a lovely picture of Professor Snape

I eagerly await some more 'Snape japes' from you soon, and with any luck, a nice picture of Colnel Tavington himself and his blushing bride, the Lady Tavington

Wedding day photos! Perhaps that ^awful^ photographer Mariane might be of some assistance there? ;)

I'd love to draw some more Snape, but now I've just got too much work from uni to do 'my own stuff', if ya know what I mean. >_<

Oh I wouldn't be able to show the escapades between Colonel Tavington and his wife - too pornographic. *laughs* ;)

Well Mariane has the blessed couplings wedding day photos but says that they are far too emotional in content to view

and who caught the bouquet, i ask? Whatever became of the Tavington Family Bouquet?

Why, *I* caught it, of course! I received meaningful looks from all my man bitches (y'know; Hugh, Viggo, Kain...etc ;)) It's sitting on the mantelpiece next to George's shrine *prays* Oommmmmm....;D

Whoa, creepy! O_O But looks fantastic! The perspective is a tad off, but the whole composition of the pic is great. So delicate details and creative spookiness. Snape's clothes look really cool. :)

Yay, thankyou! :D I love designing his clothes, and I definitely get the impression that his classroom/dungeon would be a very creepy place to be in (although with a teacher like that in there, I wouldn't care! ;D)

Yeah, Snape is a decidedly cranky bastard. A creepy bastard too. But I love him to little pieces. He really has got some incredible lines in those books *sigh* you have to hand it to the cynical little bugger. You really have.

I have a bit of a soft spot for the bad guy, too.


Anyway, this is fantastic. It just smoulders with that brooding disdain thing, which he seems to do so well. Your techniquie is near perfect, the sheer tekky skill with that biro that you've shown... Wow. So much detail - his sleeves are yummy and, while I wouldn't describe the things in those jars as delicious-looking (I don't think I'd fancy eating one of them), they 're certainly something :D

The creepiness definitely makes up a lot of the appeal, yeah. ;) Oh, and aren't the bad guys always the best? People will always remember a nutty bad guy over a plain, heroic main guy. *snore* Awww, thankyou very much; I definitely wanted to get that sneer of his across, and the way he looks down on everything (well, the students ;D) Thanks, it's nice to know there are more Snape fans in the world! :D

Thanks! Most of his lines in the books make me gasp with shock or laughter cos they're just so cruel! Surely there isn't a real teacher out there in the world that says such cutting remarks and isn't sacked. ;)

Ah thankyou! I love designing clothing. :)
