Could you not ask for mercy for the mother, in exchange for the son? They can die, as long as you have what you want?

Why would he assume they would suddenly have a change of heart and stop? It seems he felt that he could only rely on himself for protection. I have to say, Dumbledore does a major disservice to Lily here, deliberately arranging for her continued ignorance of the severity of the issue, not only in her friend, whose plight she is led to believe is minimal, but in the group of housemates who become her friends, colleagues, and in one case, her husband.

He is such a nerd.

Severus snape — speechless

Here he is finally given a chance to prove why he has always deserved the DADA post and he is trying to impress his students the way he never bothers to in potions. His style of teaching DADA is different from the way he teaches potions.

However he has such a low opinion of DADA professors that he is more forgiving and condescending. Being useful and needed means a lot to Snape. One of my favorite details in the books is that Snape assumes that Harry is James 2. He thinks Harry is a pampered prince. Sometimes when he is talking about Harry, you get the sense that he is really talking about James.

Everything he did and everything that happened to him as a teenager remains a strong presence in his life. This speech is all projection from Snape. The funny thing is Snape still became an expert in Occlumency and he still tricks Voldemort. Even after he died he was still fooling Voldemort. Then Harry found out and he chose to honor Snape.

Luckily for Snape, he was too dead to live through the humiliation of people knowing that he cared. I feel like these quotes summarise who Snape was at the end of his life better than any other. And even more mind-blowing is that after a relatively short explanation from Dumbledore, Snape still consents to his plan and does not go on protesting. I feel like from the beginning Dumbledore has the power of intimidation over Severus.

Voldemort had the physical power over him, which Severus stopped fearing at the end of his life.

All over the books Severus is doing all he can to prove his worth to the only one who, albeit quite dismissively, but at least openly acknowledged his virtues and value. Dumbledore has the power of recognition upon Snape, the power of acknowledgement of his value, and he seems to know when and how to play with it.

And the curious thing is that Severus lets himself be played with at this point. He does not reclaim his self-worth back from Dumbledore, putting the latter in his place and allowing himself to be the one to carry out moral judgment of actions in the war. He acquiesces or even succumbs to the reality that it is Dumbledore who is the only one to determine who is right and who is wrong, what is morally acceptable and what not.

The absolute self-sacrifice, and the immense pain that lay at the foundation of it. That quote from Dumbledore is - in my opinion - one of the cruelest in the entire series.

Thank you avpm for giving me my life

He expresses - imagine that! And where before he had some hope that Dumbledore might acknowledge his acute despair, with that sentence that notion is laid to rest forever.

I see this sentence as the total dehumanization of Snape. From then on he is nothing but a tool for Dumbledore to wield against Voldemort, and as hayalee8 stated: Snape allows him to do that.

Because he himself also believes that he is undeserving of the most basic human kindness at that point, I think. Snape could not walk out of that shack alive. Severus Snape is such a king. Homeboy was breaking his back carrying the burden of poverty, his childhood trauma, daddy issues, double agency and ptsd and still managed to carry the Harry Potter series.

Fighting them is like fighting a many-headed monster, which, each time a neck is severed, sprouts a head even fiercer and cleverer than before. You are fighting that which is unfixed, mutating, indestructible. He had not meant to say it; it had burst out of him in temper. For a long moment they stared at each other, Harry convinced he had gone too far. As there is little foolish wand-waving here, many of you will hardly believe this is magic.

Fools who wear their hearts proudly on their sleeves, who cannot control their emotions, who wallow in sad memories and allow themselves to be provoked this easily — weak people, in other words — they stand no chance against his powers! He will penetrate your mind with absurd ease, Potter! Yes, it is easy to see that nearly six years of magical education have not been wasted on you, Potter.

Ghosts are transparent. He has her eyes, precisely her eyes.

There was a long pause, and slowly Snape regained control of himself, mastered his own breathing. Very well. But never — never tell, Dumbledore!
