So....Snape-good guy or bad guy?  
So-Snape...A good guy? Or a death eater merely fooling Dumbledore? 

Give me at least 10 reasons why you have your opinion.

Thats the question of the day.

My Reasons
This is a question I've been arguing with my bf about. Part of it, at least. I think that Snape is evil and truly killed Dumbledore. My bf believes Dumbledore is alive and that he planned this along with Snape.

Here are my reasons:

1)Snape's fascination with the Dark Arts.
2)He was part of a gang of Slytherins, when he attended school, who all turned out to be Death Eaters.
3)The chapter in which we see Snape's home in book 6 and what he talks about with Narcissa and Bellatrix.
4)The unbreakable vow he makes.
5)Karkaroff accusing him of being a death eater. Of course, this by itself isn't reason enough. The circumstances alone make people believe that he is only saying it to save his neck. I don't really think this is the case. I think he was being honest, but then I could be giving him more credit than he should get.
6)Eavesdropped on Trelawney's prophecy and reported what he heard to Voldemort
7)Tells Bellatrix that all his work for Dumbledore was done under Voldemort's orders
8)Snape is a superb Occlumens and could have hidden his loyalty to Voldemort from Dumbledore
9)Abuses his power as a professor; cruel to students, especially Harry, Hermione and Neville. If he abuses this power who knows what other powers he could be abusing.
And finally...
10)Snape murdered Dumbledore when Draco was unable to.

This is why I think he's evil and I actually hope he is. I wouldn't want Snape to be any other way. :)

Re: My Reasons
Those are some pretty good reasons. Thanks for sharing. ^_^ But I agree with your bf. Lol-sorry. But I wanted to hear different opinions.

Re: My Reasons
That's ok. I can understand where you and my bf are coming from with your reasons. I just never liked Snape much so that's part of what shaped my opinions about him. :)

Re: My Reasons
I totally agree with you. Great reasons. I think I'll have to search for reasons why he is "good" just for a counter basis.

And hi by the way ^_^
