"“Snape’s Patronus was a doe,” said Harry, “the same as my mother’s, because he loved her for nearly all of his life, from the time when they were children. You should have realized,” he said as he saw Voldemort’s nostrils flare, “he asked you to spare her life, didn’t he?”
“He desired her, that was all,” sneered Voldemort, “but when she had gone, he agreed that there were other women, and of purer blood, worthier of him —”
“Of course he told you that,” said Harry, “but he was Dumbledore’s spy from the moment you threatened her, and he’s been working against you ever since! Dumbledore was already dying when Snape finished him!””- DH
When/why do you think that conversation took place?
The real questions
Also, does this mean Voldemort was totally into his pet snake’s half-blood chewing toys marrying up? Did he ship Death Eaters with each other? Did they get really drunk and have a “dude, she totally didn’t deserve you, there plenty of fish in the sea, plus she was not that pretty” moment?
#but really when did it take place indeed #obviously after Voldemort came back bc tey were super buddies for a while there #for a given value of buddies because this is Voldemort we’re talking about #but I want to know how they got there #’well Severus I hope getting killed over a mudblood was fucking worth it oh wait she died TOO’ *crucio* [x]
There was probably a lot of Cruciatus going on, in between bouts of which Snape still managed to lie (and suppress his thoughts) well enough to convince Voldemort that he was not only over Lily but had been working on Voldemort’s behalf at Hogwarts the entire time, but that’s depressing, so instead we’re going to talk about Death Eaters having drunk sleepovers and bitching about girls while painting each other’s Death Eaters masks and letting Voldemort coerce them into his version of spin the bottle.
(Also, I just want to point out here that, canonically, people who talk about Snape only wanting to fuck Lily have exactly the same level of insight as Voldemort. So there’s that.)

Snake it, take it, Panther Princess, you must stay
Velvet goldmine, naked on your chain
I’ll be your King Volcano right for you again and again

A classmate and I were discussing exhaustion this morning (and how it is an inherent part of my personality rather than a temporary state at this point, totally stolen from that Tumblr post, etc.), and Dr. ______ chimed in with “I’ve been tired since grad school, so don’t even talk to me,” and I just thought, my God, that’s going to be my entire life, shit man I did not sign up for this, abort abort, reverse course, somebody turn this fucking boat around we’re going home.

It’s like I’m trying to tell myself something. Like I’m trying to make a point. But what is so important that I can’t just tell myself what I’m thinking?
