Why does Snape seem to hate Harry so much ?
Snape has some yet unexplained hatred for Harry, why is this?
|| Snape could be said to
hate Harry because he had once been in love with Lilly. When James
ended up marying Lilly and were killed later by Voldemort, his hatred
ended up being projected on Harry, who looks so much like his father..
the person who took away his love.
Maybe he "knew" that Lilly was a Slytherin heir (see
other speculation) and she could also speak Parseltounge. And
that could be why at the duel he had whispered to Malfoy to conjure
up the snake. (COS) And if he "knew" she was an heir of
Slytherin he probably thought it below her to be with James. We know
he was a Deatheater, and that he turned spy. It was could be said
that when he found out that Voldemort was seeking Lilly and James
to kill them. And wanting to save the woman he loved he switched sides.
And afterwards there is Harry who looks a lot like his father and
the only person who reminds him of Lilly. (Erich)
|| If Lily was muggle born
and Snape is the head of Slytherin, I don't think there'd be much
attraction since she isn't "pure-blood" I know Snape has
never specifically said anything about "mudbloods" but he's
the head of Slytherin House and that strikes me as being a given.
Snape may not like muggle borns now, but he may have changed.
When he was a student at Hogwarts, perhaps he was shy, or a nerd -
not part of the James Potter *in* crowd - but he was essentially a
good person. He may have had a crush on Lily, or even had a relationship
with her until James stepped in. When that happened, maybe he wanted
to get back at her by becoming a *darker* person and got in over his
head with Voldemort. He has never said anything critical of Lily.
Snape may hate Harry, not only because Harry looks like his father
(except for those eyes that must haunt Snape), but also because he
blames Harry for Lily's death.(Willow
1. Snape thinks James had part in trying to kill him and didn't
save him, just chickened out.
2. Snape is in Slytherin, Harry-Gryfindor. Natural enemies.
3. Just like Ron, Snape feels that Harry gets everything and is treated
better than everyone for little reason. (well he is....)
4. Said by Dumbledore that James and Snape were in the same relationship
that Harry and Draco are. A hate that is strong lasts a long time.(even
between two generations) (Landra)
Snape apparently hates Harry for the reason given in Book 1
he hates being indebted to the Potters as James once saved
However, as the books progress it seems that
this may also be a ruse. Snape is master of Slytherin and may seem
hard on Harry but if he (as may be proven true in Book 5) is about
to become Dumbledores eyes and ears among the death-eaters;
what better way to gain information than by heading the house that
contains death-eater children?
Appearing to despise Harry may be part of
his cover. (Rob
I have had a chance to read in some article
i believe it is a part in the coming books, (six/seventh) that he
only acts like he hates him because he doesn't want Harry to think
about his dead parents. Snape father had died when he was six and
his mother was killed was Lord Voldemort when Snape was sixteen, the
girl he loved most ( Samantha H. ) killed herself because her parents
was killed by lord Voldemort, so thats why he became a deatheater,
he wanted to get a chance to kill Lord Voldemort himself. He never
lefted Hogwarts so he can be with his love. I don't know if he liked
Lilly Potter maybe as a friend, but he did not love her because he
had already love another girl. ( Samantha)
Scenario: Snape fell in love with Samantha a girl in Ravenclaw
and when she killed herself because Lord Voldemort killed her parents
Snape became very angry and hated everything. He vowed to stay with
her forever and so he did, he never left Hogwarts. It was said while
he was at Hogwarts Snape was very good at Potions and DADA. when the
love of his life died he wanted to take the position to do more studies,
so he could go after Lord Voldemort, in which he jioned the death
eaters, but left with no sucess and thats why Dumbledore trusted Snape
and gave hims a second chance. He knew Snape only joined to get revenage
for Samantha, her parents and he mother, who were killed by lord Voldemort
or was because of him they died like in Samantha case.
