Happy Birthday, Severus Snape!

Today is the birthday of one of the most famous literary characters of all time. Never has one character stimulated so much debate as J.K. Rowling's Severus Snape. Is he a good man or a villain? Does his love of Lilly Potter excuse his behavior to her son later? Did he put that barrier up between him and Harry because it pained him every time he looked into that kid's eyes and saw the eyes of the woman he loved and lost? There are so many things that were implied, but never really answered about this mysterious man. For me, I loved Snape. Sure, I hated him throughout most of the series because of the way he treated our beloved Harry Potter, but in that moment when the tears were collected and Snape's memories were witnessed...it was all over for me! I loved the man through and through. Share you favorite Snape moments (or even your favorite Alan Rickman moments, because both are so sorely missed)!
