“Look…at…me…”

dead weight is p. tough, amirite Snape?

so fucking creepy. She’s dead, her husband is dead, her house is in ruins, the son she died to protect is crying in his crib, and he’s fondling her dead body and sobbing all over her corpse. Awful, not romantic or bittersweet, huge invasion of boundaries even if she’s dead, she would never have let him touch her like that in life so I don’t see how it’s okay in death, not okay with this scene ever.

It’s probably with the fact that he never could hold her like that in life. He was in love with her since they were children and she died. I’m sure you’d do the same thing if you were in that situation. And it’s not supposed to be romantic, it’s supposed to be real and heartbreaking. Which it was. There wasn’t a dry eye in the theater when this showed.

IK there were tears in my eyes too…tears of dismay and embarrassment that they fucked up my favorite chapter in the whole damn series.  Being in love doesn’t give Snape a free pass to do whatever he wants with Lily’s dead body.  Sorry, even if it’s not romantic I refuse to see it as anything other than creepy as fuck.  Would you excuse this if it was canon, given the fact that canon has Lily actively disassociating with Snape because of Reasons™ and yet it is suddenly ok for him to be holding and rockin back and forth and bawwwing with her dead body?  Not in my opinion.  
Just, nope. 

Even if it didn’t happen in the books, I can believe Snape would be creepy/selfish enough to hold her dead body. And the shock and grief of seeing her dead body would definitely cloud his judgement, I guess.The problem was more the intent, the filmmakers painted it as a romantic and sympathetic scene, rather than a dark, uncomfortable, disturbing scene.
But then again, the filmmakers chose make Snape a romantic sympathetic character rather than a disturbed one, so it’s not so surprising.


I would actually say the filmmakers were going for what was already in the books. JK herself made Snape a romantic, sympathetic character rather than a disturbed one as he was. In the course of very little time, she represented Snape as the guy who tormented a teenager because the teenager’s mother didn’t love him (and rightfully so) to having that same teenager consider him so noble he would name one of his kids after him (in probably the world’s most unfortunate combination of names to honor anyone.) As if how much a jerk Snape was to Harry, and how unhealthy his emotions for Lily were, went away just because he was on Dumbledore’s side all along. The way she wrote Harry seeing him in the end, is how we’re supposed to see him, as Harry says, “the bravest man I ever knew”
Sorry, nope.
