The greasy haired, hook nosed potions master in Harry Potter that "loathes"...mostly everything. Mysterious, and has a haunting past. Was a death eater, but turned spy for Dumbledore and the Order Of the Pheonix.
In the sixth book, Snape murders Dumbledore.
In the seventh book, Snape shows Harry why he did it. Turns out he loved Harry's mother, Lily, and turned to Dumbledore for help when he found out Voldemort was going to kill her (and her son and husband). When Dumbledore has one year left to live he asks Snape to kill him in order to help others.
Dumbledore: But this is touching Severus, have you grown to care for the boy, after all?
Severus Snape: For him? Expecto Patronum!
(A silver doe patronus like Lily Potter's emits from Snape's wand.)
Dumbledore: After all this time?
Lily Potter: Does it make a difference, being Muggleborn?
Snape hesistated. His black eyes, eager in the greenish gloom moved over the pale face, the dark red hair.
Snape: No, It doesn't make any difference.
n. An ambiguous character in the Harry Potter series. He teaches the Potions class, speaks mostly in a whisper and snarls a lot.
In the books, he is a thin, spider-like man with a large hooked nose and greasy black shoulder-length hair. He wears billowing black robes and pretty much dislikes everyone.
In the movies, he is Alan Rickman in a non-wizardy but completely adorable outfit.
Fangirl: Aaaahhhhh! Cuteness!
Snape: DO NOT CALL ME THAT!
Hot bitch professor, who often stars in my kinky Student/Professor fantasies, where I'm the student, yay. :D
Holy shit, Snape is so dark and tormented that its FUCKING HOT.
That hot, dark looking professer who is hated by all and all are hated by him!
Snape: I want to spank you
Harry: Oh My!
AKA: Professor Snape
Sex in Black Robes Hogwarts Potions Master Extraordinaire, and all around snarky git. Once sworn enemy of MWPP, especially James Potter, who saved his life, and Sirius Black, who risked it. Secretly hiding a good side under all his bitching and whining. Also, inevitable true love of Harry Potter.
"Hello, I'm Severus Snape, a greasy-haired git you cannot resist!"
Sexy Potions master at Hogwarts, hated by all the students there.
Snape is HOTT!
A character (professor at Hogwarts) in the Harry Potter book series by J.K. Rowling (or, for you illiterate bastards, in the Harry Potter movies).
Characterized as a mean, slimy, suspicious and unpopular professor hated by most of the school's students, especially those outside of Slytherin.
This term can also be used by the hopeless Harry Potter geek to refer to said geek's least favorite teacher.
HP Geek #1: I can't belive Snape gave us so much math homework! I was going to finish chapter 54 of my Draco/Hermione fan fic!
HP Geek #2: I know! Wait, should I be concerned that I understand what the hell you're saying when you use Harry Potter words to refer to aspects of real life?
HP Geek #1: Probably. Maybe you should go see Madam Pomfrey in the hospital wing.
HP Geek #2: Doh!
one of the kindest, bravest, gentlest, sexiest men dumbledore has ever known.
