Done for "The Beauty Within Snape" challenge at :iconspinners--end: .

Snape's upbringing could have made him a real villain...but yet...

I love the triptych style--that is so original! The first panel nearly moved me to tears. I've worked with kids who had similar upbringings and you're right--Snape could have easily become a heartless, amoral villain. Instead he was good, brave and honorable, even if most people could not see through his demeanor and recognize that. Beautiful job! :heart:

I think his ability to tolerate children speaks volumes, heh.

My friend and I joked that Snape's punishment was being forced to teach!

I put a comment like that in one of my SSHG stories: the cruelest thing Dumbledore ever did to Snape was forcing him to teach beginners all those years.

I hope at least he enjoyed his NEWT students, all of them Outstanding. I imagine he treated his seventh years like grad students, giving them research projects and having individual advisory meetings.

Hahah. And Neville gets kicked around because he could have died instead of Lily.
