Happy 67th birthday, Alan Rickman! [Feb.21]

“I’m never really looking for anything. I’m looking to be surprised and to have one’s instincts engaged with a piece of writing rather than anything planned. I think if you make decisions before you read something, then you’re not free. I’d much rather just turn page one and start to get a flavor of a character. That’s what an actor is, I think. You’re a bundle of instincts that you fling at something called training, and you hope training orders it a bit for you so that you can make choices, but ultimately you’re dependent on your instincts and your imagination, and that’s something you can’t pin down.”

Can you imagine Alan Rickman hosting an awards show?

The Three Snapes: an inadequately-written essay of sorts that is actually more of a ramble and is generally Snape-flavored

nilamarthiel:

Let me start off with some disclaimers, alright? Because I excel at making people upset.

If you dislike Snape, chances are you won’t like this post because this was meant to sort of… counter-balance all the Snape-distaste that I’ve been seeing, because I’m really fond of him. Alternately, if you do like Snape, you probably also will not like this post because I agree with some of the Snape-distaste and I make a point of him being an ass.

So basically this will make everyone unhappy, unless you are neutral about the character as a whole. Go me.

Also, I probably won’t be able to give precise examples mainly because I haven’t read the books in a long time as I gave them to my little brother. As I think it should be, otherwise they would be stuck in storage somewhere and that is not the place for a book. I really cannot be arsed to go back downstate to mum’s to steal the books back from my baby bro in order write a thing on the internet. Please forgive any gross inaccuracies where my brain has failed me, etc. Note: It probably has. Don’t read this.

Oop, well, now even the neutral parties are unhappy. Shit, y’all, I am on fire today.

It’s been a couple of years since I’ve read the books, and I’ve only read them the one time, but I wanted to reblog this because I really agree with it.

A) Alan Rickman? ALL. THE. AWARDS. YOU. FABULOUS. BASTARD.

B) Snape is complex, flawed, brave, but weak in other ways. Well, everything you said.
