I'm so glad you've got a one-track mind like me ~* Oh, Train, you play at the perfect time. HA.
I can't believe he thinks Beth is joining the same cause as him. Maybe he's just overcome by wishful thinking? Oh, oh, Severus. I just want to snuggle you. YOU JUST NEED SOME LOVE, OKAY. JUST SOME LOVE. DON'T WORRY. MAMA TANYA IS HERE TO SNUGGLE AND LOVE YOU. THERE'S NO NEED TO JOIN THE BADDIES. JUST STAY HERE AND BE LOVE AND BE ALL BETTER, OKAY?
-squishes him forcibly-
I'm almost sad to see him thinking that Beth's joining the Death Eaters. And I agree completely with his one-track mind and how stubborn he is once he gets set on something. :/ Is he blinded by wishful thinking, do you think? Or what? I don't know. I'm just like, fels, whyyy??? I do admire Snape, though, for sticking to his guns no matter what. That really is admirable, especially in a world full of finicky and wishy-washy people, and even tough what he's set on is not exactly the best of things, sigh.
Snapey, you're da best. -thumbs up-
EVERY TIME I THINK BACK TO THEM IN THE TREE BY THE LAKE, I GET ALL FEELS AND JUST WANT TO CUDDLE MY PILLOW PET AND MY DOG AND JUST, STARE OFF. They are so good together. D: I'm scared what's in store. Sigh.
Things are always nice and fluffy at school. They might be dramatic and whatnot, but still, you're in the safety of school. Once they go out to the "real world," though. I'm scared. What if the real world eats them? ahh. janechel. what do i do about these feels?
-wraps myself in feels and falls to the floor-
Author's Response: One-track minds? Oh, that song is perfect. :D Mama Tanya to the rescue! I think it's really interesting, though, how drastic his inability to see any side other than his own really is. For some reason, when I was writing him like that, that's when I felt most connected to his canon character. If that makes any sense at all...
I think his motivation may in part be due to wishful thinking, and I think another large part of it is just how sorely convinced he is that he's /right/. He is so thoroughly set in the idea that he's going to end up on the winning side that he wants Beth to be there, too; there's no question about it to him.
ALL THE LAKE FEELS FOR YOUUU. ♥ It was so extraordinarily difficult to send some of my dear characters out beyond the Hogwarts bubble. And even now that I've finished book 2 (as of TODAY!), it's weird. I just want to ship them back to school where nothing can hurt them.
