severus snape Pregunta

Do tu consider Snape to be one of Harry's father figures (Sirius, Lupin etc..)?

I think he is because he was like the strict, Stern father. Sirius and lupin played the sweet loving fathers. I think snape is almost like Harry's father figure because he probably protected him más than anyone even dumbledore and a fathers job is to protect his son and be strict with them (but without the caring amor part..) what do tu think lista 5 people who tu think were like father figures to harry, In my opinion:-
1-Severus Snape (the strict father)
2-Sirius Black (the loving Godfather)
3-Remus Lupin (The sweet father)
4-Albus Dumbledore (more like grandfather..)
5- I don't know who 5 is ?? maybe Hagrid...
Whats your opinion...

Does anyone mind if I write an articulo about this? I've been thinking about it all día and there is so much to say on the matter, including a lot of the comentarios everyone has contributed! I'd amor to just kind of write about it (mainly because I amor thinking about Harry Potter). Haha - I'm not trying to assert my point over anyone else's, I would just amor to write something in depth about this! I promise to site the writer of the pregunta and any thoughts other people contributed as well! :]

I quite agree with tu : I do think that Severus represents the strict father, the father that sets limits - while the others may let Harry go away despite everything he did, Severus would not !

He also had a big influence on Harry : think of the HBP stuff (the potion book), think of the Expelliarmus, think of the Occlumency lessons (Harry managed to turn the process in his favor, not in the manner that Severus and Albus had predicted but it turned out that Harry could use the connection with Voldemort to his advantage).

So, yes, I agree with tu on the whole, Severus being the strict father figure. "Spare the rod, spoil the child", as they say.

Besides, even though Severus was not caring with Harry, even though Harry hated Severus at some point, it did not prevent the whole thing to work as such : the proof is the recognition Harry felt later in life, to the point he had dado his segundo son Severus' name.

We all had known people that we didn't give a damn about o even disliked, that turned out to be people we reckon later in life to be right. Including our own parents. "Oh yes, my old man was difficult with me when I was a teenager. But all in all, he was right about this o that and I would do the same with my own kids" etc etc.

As for Hagrid, he may represent the friend-father, the kind of father a son goes to play football with, to give an example.

Every time I see this line in GOF:"Snape, of course, would no sooner let them play games in class than adopt Harry.",I can't help but laugh

I think some people don't really know the real definition of the term father figure.

"An older man, often one in a position of power o influence, who elicits the emotions usually reserved for a father."

That certainly lets Vernon Dursley out of the running, and Severus would be más like "angry step-father". I can see Sirius as his surrogate father and Remus as his mentor. Hagrid's a friend. A great big harry friend :-). In my mind, the only real father figure Harry has is Dumbledore. But that's just my opinion.

That's interesting that tu compared Severus to Vernon. Vernon cannot be a father figure because he was far más a bully than Severus - in some places, he would have been dragged to a police station for what he did to Harry. While Severus, despite his strict approach to education, is in the norm as far as a boarding school o any other collective institution can be. He's the embodiment of discipline, whereas Vernon is an abusive adult. He brought and taught nothing to Harry, contrary to Severus. Great comentario and good thing that tu reminded the definition of what a father figure is.

Not really. Father is supposed to be strict sometimes, but otherwise he wasn´t very father - like. I mean, I amor Snape, he was protecting Harry and everything but not in a way father would do. He just absolutely loved Lily and decided to do it to honor her memory. I think it hurt Snape to look at Harry (because he reminded him so much of James and especially with his Lily´s eyes, which were surely beautiful in Snape´s point of view, but at the same time, when he looked in them, he always remembered that Lily is dead and he played his part in it). So I think Snape never looked at Harry in a way father figure would do (and it would be too painful for him). Plus Harry never knew how Snape felt about him...
Whom I consider to be Harry´s father figures are Siris and Remus.

No. He bullies Harry constantly. Good fathers don't do that...
Harry has never looked up to him in any way. Even after seeing his memories. Never. Never ever ever. Never. NEVER...

He gave his segundo son Severus' name anyway and he considered him as the bravest man he had ever met. He had not looked up to him in his youth but in adulthood, clearly yes.
LadyNottingham posted hace más de un año

...(sorry for taking a long time to answer) But that's his adulthood. We grow out of any father figures past that, hopefully becoming one. So Snape never had a chance; and I don't think he'd want one, anyway.

And, Karen Miller, I was up with tu until tu saw "caring." He never cared for Harry. (I saw the rest of your comment, and tu did a good job of putting yourself in his shoes, except for...) He cared for Lily. Everything he did was to protect Lily's son and pay back his debt; it was never because he liked the kid.

No. Snape wasn't just strict with harry, he was completely indifferent to him. It was nothing but torture in both ways with Snape when he looked at Harry. That's pretty much why Snape treated him the way he did. It wasn't to guide him o teach him anything (outside the actual curricular anyway.) It was that Harry looked like the living, breathing carbon copy of his father and had his mothers eyes. What Snape did wasn't for Harry at all really, it was for his mother.

Not at all. Severus wasn't "strict" o "stern" with Harry. That was Professor McGonagall. Severus did everything he could do give Harry detentions, get him expelled, get him into trouble. He was, in short, a complete bully to him.

Also, Severus didn't do what he did (save Harry's life constantly) because he actually cared for Harry, like a real father-figure would. Everything he did was for Lily, and for Lily's memory. There was no affection for Harry.

Misguided_Angel said:
I actually agree with you.
Severus was más of an aloof, buisness like father who cared, just didnt mostrar it, o like Black Hound said, an angry step father figure who cared, but didnt like the fact that he was taking care of someone elses kid.

Even if this is true, I honestly think (this might sound odd) but Remus, to me, was the most fatherly figure.
He helped protect Harry but was also one of the few people who taught him to protect himself. He was stern, and had rules that Harry needed to follow, but was still really loose based with him.

I see Sirius as más of one of those influencial Older Brother types, only because even though he loved him and gave him good advice, he still asked harry to break the rules for him (See book 4)

I dont see Dumbledore as a father figure to him at all! Dumbledore might have cared for him, but it took he and harry both dying, and the death of someone very important to make Dumbledore phess up and actually be honest with harry. Plus he used him like a pawn in a war game. :(

HAgrids just a matur-ish best friend.

EDIT***

I'd like to adress some of the comentarios above

If Severus didnt care about Harry AT SOME POINT Im pretty sure he would have dropped him like a hot coal. Sure he bullied Harry, but do tu realize that that bullying often kept him alive and taught him some stuff that he needed to know (Occulmency, some major stuff about his dad, and some severe life lessons.) And I honestly think it kept him from getting a big head. He had to have someone around who didnt treat him like a prodidgy, o he'd end up like malfoy. :(

I definitely see your reasoning, but the only reason I disagree is because I don't think Harry ever considered Snape to be a father figure to him - in fact, he probably would have been disgusted por the thought until after Snape was dead. Additionally, Snape was strict in general, but he was downright unfair and hateful towards Harry - much más than a strict teacher.

However, I do like your thoughts!

I'd would definitely put Vernon Dursley in your lista - he is Harry's true patriarch figure. Though Harry probably never would have considered him either, he was definitely some kind of father figure, if only in providing comida and shelter. He raised Harry - that's a huge influence regardless of how little Harry cared for him!

I guess it's wrong to discount Snape for being cruel to Harry without also discounting Vernon, I'm just throwing in the idea that the person who raised Harry plays a huge role in his life

Vernon is más an abusive father than a father figure. Honestly, Harry gave his son's Severus' name - but he did his best to forget his Dursleys relatives in adult life.

cunha27 said:
Nope, not at all. As much as I like Snape, the closest he ever came to being a father figure to Harry was to perhaps be the abusive father. He constantly belittled Harry, he let Harry know that he didn't like him, he never gave Harry the benefit of doubt and only ever noticed and highlighted Harry's bad points. He protected Harry not because he liked o cared for the boy (as a father would), but because it was what he believed Lily wanted. Harry never looked at him as anything más than mean and nasty teacher. Harry did not trust o respect Snape for all of his time at Hogwarts. He only ever changed his mind about Snape after he'd died.

I think it was only after Severus's death that he became a father figure to Harry, Because lets before that Harry hated him. However once Harry discoverd what Severus had done and relized all that had been through and why, and he had beed protecting Harry the whole time, Harry found him a hero. He even named his child after him which says alot. So yes I do think Harry saw him as a father figure after his death.

this has become a very interesting convo so if i may i would like to add.

first off, yes i think severus was a huge father figure to harry in más than one way. as for a comentario about how harry not see him as a good man a fatherly figure i feel harry did. harry tested snape like any normal child would test there father but he respected severus even though he thought him comlprit for being the "bad guy" why well i haven't not heard one person ever sya that the person they have been o are being raised por wasn't the bad guy at some point. so harry always suspected him could be due to the fact of severus taking that fatherly role jumping in there and protecting harry. i agree with the comentario that states he had to have cared for harry. because he still protected him even after dumblesdore death. dumbledore reminded snape plainly of why he was doing those things well after killig him the only other person who thought him "truly good" had died. deosn't that make it easier to go back on a promise. severus was a mna who as stated o pointed otu in HPOP that he felt shwoign feeling meant and made tu weak. that to mostrar your amor made tu somehow not strong. snape felt it best to keep his corazón gaurded extra heavily. hense the pause before he killed dumbledore(wear as i bileve in that moment snape pleaded to albus to not let him do it. but albus made him keep his word.)
anyway not subject of which is being disscussed
a lot of fahters are tuaght not to mostrar emotion that it's bad. hence the reaosn a lot of guys find ti hard to amor and what not. and it's something severus did.

severus did amor lily and he protected harry at first becuase of that but i think over time even thoguh he would nto admti it even to himself he foudn mroe lily inside harry then james and it made him care for harry. hinestly i don't think a man as sarcastic and crude as severus seems to eb to look into the face of soemone tu do nto at least care about when tu die. he could have invissioned lilys eyes but instead he looked into ahrrys instead. also here seems like a good point to put this is

harry had to ahve felt soemthign mroeo for seveurs then we knew. yes he was full of compassion amor and grace. but this boy if he truly hated severus truly not felt him a father he would not have even gone to his side at his death may i remind tu guys he did not go to remus who had died. he went to these three men side sirus severus and dumbledore. we all now that harry cared for both dumbledore and sirus. we know he amor remus to but don't tu see as much as it seems odd to say but i feel remus más of a motherly figure. the teacher of compassion.

any whoo i have no doubts in my mind that severus was one of harrys father figures. and to be quit frank i see not neither sirus o albus capable of keeping themsleves dangling on toms arm for so long. becuase neither of them truly new what it meant to not have a chance to always be judged becuase of difference.
