After a month, the Snape post

NO MORE SPOILER CUTS

It is one month past release. This journal is no longer going to be have spoiler protection, though long and rambling posts, will, of course, have cuts.

Well, I haven't done a post-HBP Snape post. Come to think of it, I didn't do a pre-HBP Snape post, either, but that doesn't seem to have been a mandatory thing, as the major question raised by HBP about Snape's loyalties hadn't really focused the discussion. I don't think it was ever much of a secret that I'm not a Snape fan, and he was the only character I said I could believe in an ESE!Character scenario (though I wasn't sure what the point of one would be).

Yet now that he has delivered the fatal curse and committed an act of extreme treason--which should have appealed to my Not-A-Snape-Fan sensibilities--I find myself entirely agnostic on the Great Snape Debate, which is why I haven't actually done a post on it. I can see a lot of possible scenarios with the set-up, including totally evil Snape in a couple of forms, but not excluding loyal-to-Dumbledore-at-the-worst-extreme!Snape, either.
