Feature and Follow #4

Q: Who is your favorite villain from a book?

A: Off the top of my head... Severus Snape. For six books in the Harry Potter series, he made everyone believe he's the bad guy (aside from Voldemort of course). Everything about him just screamed, VILLAIN!!! But lo and behold, he's actually the complete opposite. Everything revealed in the final book just made my heart melt and I felt how awful Harry must have felt the moment he found out. If you haven't read the series, then I'm sorry for spoiling the story for you (a bit). But I'm pretty sure it'll still give you the same effect when you read it. ;-)

Here's to the bravest Slytherin there ever was!
UPDATE 1/19/13

After going through a number of blogs with answers pertaining to villains in the Harry Potter series, I felt so disappointed in myself for forgetting my most hated villain yet. No, it definitely isn't Voldemort. It's Dolores Umbridge. I can't believe I forgot about her! I was so fixated on giving Snape the spotlight he so rightly deserves (dramatic yet again) that I failed to feature possibly the most vile witch (yes, worse than Bellatrix) in the world of magic. The mere thought of Umbridge makes my blood boil. Really! I hated Umbridge in the book, I hated her even more in the movies (kudos to Imelda Staunton!). I think the main reason why I find her so repulsive is her ability to appear all perky and ohh-look-at-all-my-cat-pictures-and-my-frilly-pink-outfit-*giggles* but underneath all that... well you get the point. I get more riled up with villains who don't appear evil on the outside 24/7. The frustration just takes over. Ha!

Here's to... no, no toast for you, lady.

Oh and... I follow back. ;-)

  3. I never really saw Snape as the villain....there was always something about him that made me question his allegiance - both to Dumbledore and to Voldemort.

    1. I just... I didn't like how he treated Harry :( Lol but yeah, he wasn't a super villain even when he tried to portray one.
