    Nice video! and Snape is far more powerful than most mages, only Voldemort and Dumbledore were above him in my opinion... HE CREATED SPELLS, that's a whole new level dude, and not only that, they work far more easily than the regular ones

  • TheEddie1910
    TheEddie1910 18 hours ago

    Yeah at least we are at the point were those things that are supposed to be situated in the HP universe can completeley be discarded as non-canon because they simply contradict too many canon facts and as such, Nagini most likely wasn't a human prior to her snake form =)

  • Xanegoh
    Xanegoh Day ago

    "Reemus"? Uh, you want to try that name again?

  • BernieRox Michigan

    I don't think that knowing that Nagini used to be a woman makes Neville killing her more dark, I think it makes it all the more great. She was cursed to live as a snake forever. That is probably why she took up with Voldy, is because he is the only one that she could communicate with. She probably tried killing herself before but could not and did not think that she could ever die. Neville killing her would have been a release, kind of like Wolverine finally dying in Logan.

    I'd disagree it led him down the dark side but able to use those feelings in INFILTRATION against the death eaters as he was very much as loyal to Dumbledore as harry himself was

  • Arachné Sakura

    Wait Snape was already going dark side back when he was still a student at hogwarts. thats why Lily rejected him. he openly chose the dark arts and side. she begged him to walk away from it. he didnt and she walked away.

    Usually though people like that aren't bullied much. After all if someone isn't hurt by the bullying and just adapts to it then it's not fun anymore. However they are completely and utterly rejected. That's what happened to me.

    I think what Ron has more is self-worth. Sirius never had much self-worth which is why he was so attracted to James. James had a tremendous level of self-confidence and to one like Sirius that would seem amazing. Though Sirius keeps insisting he doesn't care about his family being called a disappointment and inferior to your brother for your entire childhood has an impact on a child. Harry had the comfort of knowing the Dursley's weren't his real parents but Sirius didn't have that. However because of that he strongly encouraged James' reckless behavior and bullying ways.
    I'm not saying Sirius has no self-worth, he's not Peter. He can think for himself and has his own ideas of right and wrong. However he is naturally submissive and would rather be the sidekick than being in the spotlight himself.

    Lupin though doesn't have this naturally submissiveness as he grew up loved by his parents. He was rejected by the wizarding world somewhat which cut into his confidence. However his loving parents meant he never felt that deep desire of belonging that Sirius did. With him though rather it's the fear of losing what he had. His parents stood with him but he would very well be aware just how difficult it was for them having a werewolf as a son. Therefore there would be a strong fear in him that perhaps one day his parents will reject him just like everyone else does. When he was at Hogwards that fear transferred over to his friends. Even though unlike Sirius he actually did disapprove of them showing off he never had the self-confidence to do much.

  • DuskyPredator

    I like this, because I think it has a point. If Snaps was able to have confidence in who he was, on top of the piled up bullying of the others, he may have had a more happy life. Luna is the so called weird kid, but Ginny stays by her, Harry never makes fun, nor Ron encourage it, and Hermione is vocal over empathy. Snape never moved on and appeared a villain, Luna never let her bullies define her.

    • marinus18
      marinus18 2 days ago

      I'm not sure it's that. Severus took the bullying to heart and became a bully himself, as it continued he became more and more vindictive and practiced darker and darker magic.

      Luna never hated the people at Hogwards. This made Ginny stick by her while with Snape his ever increasing malice drove Lilly away.

    7:33 and Neville could have turned out much different if not from the support he receives throughout the books. I mean, in the third book he is the one who told Malfoy that Harry had fainted which is a major breach of trust just by how much anguish it causes Harry. It's so different from how he ends up, older Neville would never do that.

  • Josh Laz
    Josh Laz 7 days ago

    My long standing question is this. How was Petigrew sorted into griffindor in the first place? Sure he may have had the potential for bravery but it never comes through (not even once), however a defining characteristic of his was to ally himself with more powerful friends. This is true of his time with the marauders and later with Voldemort and the death eaters. This way of thinking requires both cunning and ambition, qualities defined by Slytherin.
    When thinking about this I can think of another character who was incorrectly sorted. Someone who disregarded the bonds of family and friend, who aligned themselves with the most powerful institute at the time and who was always trying to further their own ambitions. In fact the latter seems to be their defining characteristic. I am of course talking about Percy Weasley. And yes I know he had a change of heart during the battle of Hogwarts, but even after that he continues in his ambitions to rise higher in the ministry. So here's my question. Both Peter and Percy belonged in Slytherin the whole time, thoughts?
    And yes I know Dumbledore says that they sort students too early, but come on.

    • Antara Dabral
      Antara Dabral 5 days ago

      Well Peter was mostly driven by fear, so maybe when he was being sorted he wanted a way to overcome that fear. As for Percy, he was also probably either afraid of distancing himself from family (or something like that), or afraid that he wouldn't be successful (again probably because of where he came from).

    NO. Just no!
    Reemus being afraid of relationships has less to do with how he feels about himself and more to do with how he can be a legit danger for people around him (which is proven to be correct later)
    Luna and Snape have as much in common as sugar and honey i.e. NOTHING. Snape is an adult with multi-dimensional character traits he is loving but uses apathy as a guard, he rebels and joins the dark side but somehow still maintains his moral compass.

    So yeah, NOPE!

    I love those comparisons, I never even thought about it like that.
    But I don‘t agree on Ron beeing the „better“ version of Sirius.
    Yes they both want to stand out and are incredibly prejudiced.
    Ron isn‘t as obvious a bully as Sirius but I don‘t think that‘s something that can be credited to him. I think we can clearly see that he has these tendencies, but Harry and Hermoine keep him in check.
    What sperates them in my opinion is Sirius‘ loyalty to his friends, something Ron‘s sorely lacking.
    So in this instance I believe the Marauders did it better.
    I absolutely agree in Neville and Luna though.
    With Harry and Hermoine I‘m on the fence.
    I also don‘t comepletly agree with Lily being flawless. She isn‘t the most loyal friend either, as we can see with Snape.
    (Book) Ginny on the other hand is really loyal.

    Why is Peter Pettigrew even in Gryffendor? he doesn't really seem to embody any of the traits associated with Gryffindor?
    The most obvious being brave and noble, when was he ever actually brave or noble in his doings?

    • Phoebe Okoomian
      Phoebe Okoomian 5 days ago

      The house you get sorted into is based more on the traits you value, rather than the traits you embody. This is why, for example, Hermione is in Gryffindor rather than Ravenclaw. Of course, Hermione is plenty brave, but her intellectual traits stand out far more and, based soley on personality, she should be in Ravenclaw. She is not, because she values bravery more than intellect. She says as much in the first book when she tells Harry he is great wizard, and he insists that she is better, and she says, "Me? Books and cleverness? There are more important things. Friendship and bravery." From this, we can assume that, while not brave himself, Peter must have valued bravery. One doesn't have to embody a trait to value it. Especially with courage, which is much easier to value than it is to have. And he did ally himself in school with James and Sirius, who we know were both incredibly brave. (Of course, we also know he allied himself with them because they were powerful and could protect him, but I think part of it was also that they embodied the traits he most valued, and he admired them because of it).

    well in defense of lupin: his condition as werewolf is far more serious than being a muggleborn. i mean once a month he turns into a beast that can´t see the difference between friend and foe. yes in his later days there is that potion snape brew for him, but that wasn´t invented during his time at hogwarts

  • Jett Allyson
    Jett Allyson 13 days ago

    I love this theory and definitely see the connections between one generation and the next. Incidentally, speaking of parallels, Hermione easily could have become another Moaning Myrtle, killed in the bathroom by a monster (troll), while crying over something mean somebody said about her.
    My personal theory about Hermione is that she marries Ron because she falls in love with his family and can't stand to be without them. Unlike Harry, Hermione does not find herself at Hogwarts. She finds herself in her friendship with Harry and Ron. Before them, she's unable to make friends. That's not to say she isn't a strong character, it's just that she's incredibly lonely. Harry and Ron are close with the other Gryffindor boys, but Hermione never makes friends with the Gryffindor girls, other than Ginny. Hermione spends most of her summers with the Weasleys. I think she falls as much in love with their family as she does with Ron.

    you know Snape invented the sword spell and the first targets of levicorpus were probably the Marauders. James isn't perfect and he's definitely a bully but I believe Remus and Sirius when they tell Harry that it was a constant back and forth. Also Harry never bullied Luna...for people who brag about how much you read the books all the time you seem to miss big character moments where Luna starts to grow on Harry and he even plays into it sometimes
