Severus Snape is somehow 'gone'. That is what makes me sad every día again. This pregunta is dedicated to everybody who is suffering from Snape-abstinence. (today for karenmiller1972 and her daily pregunta at the Severus Snape wall)
I don't know what tu mean por "gone". I mean, I do, but for me, he is very much alive. He is alive in me, in my mind, in my heart, and I dare say, in my soul. I carry him with me all the time.
I understand how many of tu feel, but believe me when I say that there will never be a time when there are not people talking about the Harry Potter saga; there will never be a time when there are not people discussing the complexities of Severus Snape. I can promise tu this.
Because I am older than a lot of you, and I have lived with The Lord of the Rings for my entire life. It is a part of me; it is in every breath I take. I can not recall a time in my life when I did not know who Gandalf was. o who Frodo was. o who Sauron was. How many of tu here realize that JRR Tolkien published The Hobbit 74 years ago? SEVENTY FOUR. Hell, Lord of the Rings is 56! And we are still on about all of it. We still argue about it. We still debate whether o not Denethor truly had evil in his soul o was just insane because he dared to use the Stone of Anor, and Sauron corrupted his mind. And we still wonder and puzzle over what nature of being Tom Bombadil really was.
If it wasn't for JRR Tolkien, there would never have been JK Rowling. All throughout her work are little homages to what Tolkien wrote (Dumbledore being one of the greatest of them). What JKR created is just as great, just as important, just as necessary as what JRR did. We need these stories. We need these people (I have a hard time calling them "characters") in our lives.
As long as there are human beings who dream, who look at the stars and wonder, who believe in dragones and Faerie magic, who look into their own hearts and feel the burn of love, we'll be talking about these stories.
There's always going to be someone in amor with our Potions Master somewhere, dreaming about him, talking about him.
I feel very lonely because i miss his sexy sarcasum that he had. His eyes, his hair, his body and looks. Also, his tenderness and loyalties to others that he cared for especially Dumbledore, Harry and of course Lily his one and only true love.
But that's why fanfiction is here ! For me, he's alive and well in my fanfics. I can't kill him - once had been enough and it had been done por JKR. I must admit that I do need closure but escritura and lectura fanfiction helps me with that.
Besides, we'll still have the libros and the cine and all the wonderful fanarts around. Don't worry.
In my own days, when I was a kid, we used to have estrella Wars. Now, there's the HP saga. The estrella Wars fandom is very much alive and well, very rich in terms of universe and creation. I'm sure it'll be the same in some 30 odd years o so for the HP universe. I'm not worried.
Severus will always be in our hearts. I'm confident he will achieve a position of stock character - as the tragic lover.
I feel better knowing I'm not the only one that feels something.
I read the series and when I finished Deathly Hallows, I was devestated por Severus Snape's story. I found fanfic at that point in my desparate buscar for 'more'. Some kind of closure in regard to my feelings for the character, my outrage that he was shunted aside. It hurt my sense of fairness and honor and I wanted más for him.
Fanfic has dado me that 'more'. And finding fanpop has dado me a place with people that, even if they don't share my exact feeling, they don't immediately disengage listening upon hearing what I am thinking.
Recently I've found myself ghosting my favorito! fanfics again with the ending of the movie series. It has found me revisiting that same emotional bog that I was in at the ending of the book series, but in some ways, its both better and worse.
Now, I have Alan Rickman's voice echoing in my ears, his eyes shining at me from a screen full of emotion, and his death praying on my mind. It hurts to think the visual/audial interpretation that Alan Rickman brought to the role will not be seen again in any other facet.
I have also been looking for anything he's read poesía wise so I can just listen to his voice. I've been re-reading the libros and re-watching the movies. Though, I don't know if I will re-watch Deathly Hallows 2 immediately upon its DVD release.
I think I will build up myself a little first lectura my fanfic where his ghost/timeline has been rewritten and his life dado so much más fully.
He's not 'gone' to me and never will be.Don't be lonely and don't be sad.That's what the 'world' wants us to be.He gave us the example of what it is to be strong and brave.He's too good to be forgotten.

I feel that if Snape somehow he lived, Harry would try to get closer to him which would end up annoying Snape to no end but Snape would grow to amor Harry, and Harry would look up to Snape as a father figure. Now as for emotional feelings of my own, I wish he survived for what could happen as stated above, but I get why J.K. Rowling made him die. She felt it would be más emotional to have him die. Especially with his feelings for Lily just being revealed to Harry and telling Harry the truth about several things and telling him how to finally defeat Voldemort,
