Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: Happy Snapeday! If I could give our favorite Potions Master anything for his birthday, it would be a chance to start over from scratch, with just a little more awareness that his flirtation with the Dark Arts would likely cost him the thing that he valued most in life. But then again, if I got my wish, there would be no Harry Potter saga as we know it. So I guess that I will have to live with my sadness for this great tragic character, and be ever thankful to JKR for giving him to us all.Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: To Severus Snape, the bravest man we've ever known.

I love you sooo much! You are (in my opinion) the best character in the Harry Potter series! I wish you didn't have to die! :(Avatar ImageMelly96 says: Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) Avatar ImageMaleficius says: Certainly the most complex character that Rowling created, also perhaps the most flawed in character and therefore most the human as far as I am concerned. It is truly a shame that more about Snape will never be known...from childhood, meeting Lily Evans, to the parting of the ways at Hogwarts with his placement in Slytherin, the brilliance of his mind coupled with his unfulfilled desire naturally took him towards his darker nature and there Voldemort had him in his clutches. we will never now what he was promised by Voldemort for his servitude Never truly know what drove him Never truly understand his Character of all the Characters in the Potter books, he is one that I would truly liked to have known more aboutAvatar ImageHBPFan says: To one of the most wonderful, tragic characters of the HP books, Professor Severus Snape, we remember him on his birthday, as the bravest man there ever was..Avatar ImageEeyore says: Happy Birthday, Severus Snape. He became one of my favorite characters by the end of the story - not because he was a nice person, but because he was the most interesting, the most misunderstood, and one of the most loyal to Dumbledore. His kind of bravery is unique; he became a hero in spite of himself and proved that love can bring out the best in us. *raises a glass in Severus Snape's memory*Avatar Imageforgetmenot_007 says: Happy Birthday,Professor! Avatar Imagelillyrose says: A belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the bravest man I ever knew - SEVERUS SNAPE <3Avatar Imageplatinumhimani says: yappy Birthday Half blood princeAvatar Imagespelljinxcursehexcharm says: I wonder if the day of someone's birthday has some significance be hind it. I mean, was there a reason why JKR picked a certain day, out of all 365 in the year, to be someone's birthday?Avatar Imagesessionka says: Happy Belated Birthday Severus!!! I always believed in your :-)Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: @spelljinxcursehexcharm, I think JKR has a considerable interest in astrology, and chose dates that would suit the characters' temperaments. Severus certainly suits the traditional idea of a sun-Capricorn type. I don't know how significant this is, but he shares his birthday with both the notoriously devious late ex-president Richard Nixon ('Tricky Dicky') and the great folk-singer Joan Baez (who has one of the most beautiful voices of our time and a distinctly Snape-ish nose)! It would be fun to know whether JKR had this sort of thing in mind when she gave the characters their birthdays.Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: Not sure if the last comment made a lot of sense. I was thinking of Joan Baez's amazing voice as like the beautiful patronus... Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: Well, it's certainly no coincidence that Fred & George were born on April Fools' Day, so it may well be that JKR tried to find days that suited her characters wherever possible. I think that she has discussed the relationship of Tree Ogham to their birthdays - some of them fall into the months represented by their appropriate wand-woods - but I can't recall whether that was something that she did deliberately or just a serendipity that she discovered after the fact.Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: I have seen some artwork that JKR did for a friend's child on an astrological theme, so she is certainly interested. (It was brought into Antiques Roadshow on the TV. Later on I think it came up for sale at auction.)Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: Happy birthday Snape!!Avatar ImageLunaBella BlackPotter says: Snape, Snape, Severus Snape. I LUV U!!! Snape, you are awesome and my favorite Professor EVER! I cannot believe you are 52 (or would be if you were alive). I don't care what anyone says, you are not a git :) <3 LunaBella BlackPotterAvatar Imagelengxiaoyue says: 生日快乐。
