An Analysis in Grief: 10 Harry Potter Deaths We Did Not Get Over | The Mary Sue

An Analysis in Grief: 10 Harry Potter Deaths We Did Not Get Over | The Mary Sue.

This is a two pager and a really good read.

They count down from 10 to 1 and I gotta say, they pegged #1!

I think they forgot something though when talking about Snape’s death and how it was a life long commitment to protect Harry…Severus Snape pushed Harry, made him examine things and look for the hidden meaning.

Professor Snape put himself out there as a double agent after loosing his unrequited love.

Was his death surprising? Sure, all of them were.

Was it a good death? I believe so. Snape died doing what he had sworn to do:  Protect Harry Potter at all costs. It also meant that he could finally be free. Free from the promises he made, free from the knowledge of what COULD happen to him if he was ever found out by Voldemort. Free from seeing his love’s son, from imagining what life might have been like if Lily had returned his love, if he hadn’t said what he did that turned her against him.

Finally, he was free to move on.

It had to be hard to live for probably four decades (If you figure he was 51 when he died and met Lily when he was 11. I don’t know if this is true, it’s just me making the math easier) loving someone from afar and then to betray them all in the worst possible way all in the uncertain hope of saving the future.
