How Long Has This Been Going On?
Meanwhile, on Tumblr, someone took the time to solve the problem Professor Snape gave Harry Potter on the first day of class. I think the results will absolutely break your heart. I know it did ours.
This is unbelievable, right? The thought that from the very beginning JK Rowling knew that Snape loved Harry’s mother brings on this whole new understanding for the way Snape treats Harry. He wasn’t just the difficult teacher and Rowling then adjusted Snape to fit the roll of the pining lover, but Snape was always pining after Lily. And he (and Rowling) had taken the time to put very serious clues into subtly revealing it.
For Potterheads, this is incredible. And heartbreaking. If Harry realized this riddle/problem at any point in his life, then no wonder he named his son after one of the greatest headmasters at Hogwarts. It’s a tribute to a formable foe yet friend.
Think on it Potterheads. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it. You can at least blame the tears on something bothering your eyes.
