Severus Snape is NOT A Sadist

* Originally posted on 7/6/2013

This is another rant about people's treatment of Snape. I'm getting extremely tired of being told that Sev is a sadist. He's not.

Nothing I'm saying in this rant hasn't been noted by other Snape fen, you can find all of these points in my favorite essays. But I want to consolidate them here.

The definition of a sadist is "someone who obtains pleasure from inflicting pain on others". Severus is the opposite of a sadist, going out of his way to save people from harm or pain. We have plenty of scenes to prove that, although most HP fans don't agree.

Severus and Love

*Originally posted on 5/1/2013

I've always thought that to love Severus is to love Lily. Even though I greatly prefer stories where/personally like to believe that that love is NOT romantic.
