the thing about people who glorify Snape is that I’m genuinely concerned about their idea of love and feel like people should be aware of the real-life line between romantic and creepy
They should also remember that Snape was the kind of person who kicked someone when he was down. He kept trying to get Lupin fired despite knowing that a teaching position at Hogwarts was probably the best job opportunity that came Lupin’s way in a long time. So the position was cursed and Lupin would have lost the job anyway, but the fact remains that Snape made sure Lupin lost it because he wanted to punish a Marauder. It didn’t matter that it had been years since they’d been students, or that the Marauder he punished wasn’t even one of his tormentors (i.e. James & Sirius) , he just wanted to punish them all. No, Snape was not a good man. He was a creepy and vengeful man who just happened to be a very good double agent.
