this is SO FRUSTRATING because people keep reblogging it like ‘see SEE SNAPE ISN’T A HERO JKR SAYS SO’ but it’s just another thing she’s said about the text that doesn’t apply because it isn’t in the text.

You can’t glorify Snape in the books, you can’t spend a whole chapter justifying and validating his behavior and then turn around and act like the story doesn’t cast him in a heroic light, because it does! The books frame Snape and Dumbledore’s horrible, Machiavellian actions as necessary in the face of the the threat of Voldemort and then says they’re okay by having Harry, THE CHILD THEY GROOMED AND MANIPULATED, name his CHILD after them.

You don’t get to have the main character call someone ‘the bravest man he ever knew’ without talking about all the horrible shit he did and say you didn’t write that character as a hero.
