A cheerful thought...  
Severus is for all intents and purposes dead...
BUT...
Harry drops the Resurrection Stone in the Forest
Snape's body is never mentioned to be found...
Snape (as Headmaster of Hogwarts) never gets a portrait that we know of...

My Cleopatra (queen of denial) theory is that somebody found that resurrection stone and brought Severus back to life... and he's quaffing Chartreuse in New Orleans and enjoying Mardi Gras!!!
(i won't say he's on a beach sippin' Pina Coladas, cos, well... i know what damage the sun does to pale skin!!!!)

That's a fun idea! But didn't the resurrection stone only bring back ghostly forms of the person resurrected? D:

The only one mentioned was a girl who had *apparently* been dead for quite awhile...
Severus, under the proper circumstances, couldn't have been dead for that long before this could have happened.
At least, i hope...
and that he could finally live... free... and find happiness!

oooo there's a thought! *clings to it* xD

*clinging too!!!*
smartmilk on July 24th, 2007 10:38 am (UTC)
Oooo Yes. Of course Snape is not dead XD

Arthur did not die from his snake bite, how can Snape die from it.
wikkidgothbabewikkidgothbabe on July 25th, 2007 05:10 am (UTC)
Exactly!!!
Although i think the bites were vastly different in the cases of Arthur and Severus...
STILL.

I agree. As far as I'm concerned, Snape the Ornery is still out there. Of course, I bet most would say that the reason Snape's body is never found is because a hungry animal got to it before anyone else; the reason for the portrait missing is because he was appointed by Voldemort and not someone of authority at Hogwarts (or thereabouts)--only then can you have a portrait appear. I'm sticking to the theory that Snape lives. I mean, this is SNAPE we're talking about. He can't be done in by a snake bite. That's just perposterous. I'm not in denial, either, just to make that clear. >.>

Severus' supposed death wasn't due to the venom, but having a bleedout...
it would take the resurrection stone to bring him back from that... he *did* die.
But... anything to bring our dearest Potions Master back!!!!
all it takes is one decision, a lot of guts..whatthefuckbenj on July 24th, 2007 01:50 pm (UTC)
i won't say he's on a beach sippin' Pina Coladas, cos, well... i know what damage the sun does to pale skin!!!! actually, that's the way I was imagining him: sipping cocktails on a beach far far away from Hogwarts (under a sunshade of course ;) ), being amused of other people's stupidity and enjoying not having to teach annoying brats anymore *g*

@ resurrection stone: wasn't it said that you can't bring people fully back?
wikkidgothbabewikkidgothbabe on July 25th, 2007 05:14 am (UTC)
Not really... it was said that the Peverell brother tried to bring his love back...
Maybe she'd been dead too long.
Severus, on the other hand...
all it takes is one decision, a lot of guts..whatthefuckbenj on July 25th, 2007 05:16 am (UTC)
yeah but wasn't it said later as well that people won't be the same after you brought them back??
wikkidgothbabewikkidgothbabe on July 25th, 2007 05:38 am (UTC)
Would Severus want to be the same...
miserable...
or would he finally have the chance to a happy, free life?

I always imagined the 'returned' ones more to be like brainless zombies that are just there but not actually 'living'
wikkidgothbabewikkidgothbabe on July 25th, 2007 07:12 am (UTC)
i think it would depend on how long they had been dead...
(Deleted comment)
wikkidgothbabewikkidgothbabe on July 25th, 2007 05:15 am (UTC)
Well...
That, precisely, wouldn't be a break from canon...
Cos we'll never really know... we can only speculate.

i'd much rather have it this way, though, than to have had Severus die so needlessly!!!!
Take that for what it's worth...

He stuffed a bezoar stone down this throat, waited until the battle ended, properly saw that Harry survived -- and then packed up his things and left. Currently, he lives in Princeton, New Jersey with his best-friend-forever-only-second-to-St. Lily, Dr. Gregory House. They had two kittens and are quite happy together.

For realz. Because Sev didn't go down like *that*.

LOLZ @ your *happily ever after*
Do you think that Hugh Laurie will ever be in a Harry Potter movie?
i hope so!

playing kreacher maybe?? *g*
wikkidgothbabewikkidgothbabe on July 25th, 2007 05:40 am (UTC)
Ah that would be funny... he's definitely developed the personality onscreen for that... but i'd like to think he'd have a more viablie onscreen role rather than a voiceover, as famous as he is...
wikkidgothbabewikkidgothbabe on July 25th, 2007 05:43 am (UTC)
i meant *viable*

who would you like him to be? :)
pen: [house] fangrlsavemoony on July 25th, 2007 10:35 am (UTC)
Sadly, I don't see him being in them. Just wouldn't have the time because he's shooting 'House in LA' and not in the Scottish country side. Conflict of interest there, more definitely.

If they don't cast Stephen Fry as Slughorn, however, someone is gotta get shot in the face. For realz. Heeee.

I also refuse to believe that's a snapish way to die ;)

ps: I like your icon *g*
wikkidgothbabewikkidgothbabe on July 25th, 2007 05:44 am (UTC)
Thanks!
i could NEVER believe Severus could go out in such a pointless, horrible fashion!!!!!
all it takes is one decision, a lot of guts..whatthefuckbenj on July 25th, 2007 06:08 am (UTC)
yeah he's too smart, brave, (hot *g*) for such a waste!!
wikkidgothbabewikkidgothbabe on July 25th, 2007 07:15 am (UTC)
So true!!!!
JKR, like Diana Barry, writes many brilliant characters... and then has no idea what to do with them and so *kills them off*

Re: PS, Thank you!

And have you seen this:

http://www.greatestjournal.com/users/snapetoy/134587.html

I think it pretty much explains everything in a very nice and curt fashion.
Liviahalsgoddess on July 25th, 2007 04:23 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I'm gonna go with not dead as well.

The lack of a portrait is what really does it for me. The Headmaster's Office allowed Snape in, which can't be said about Umbridge. Also Harry refers to Snape as a hedmaster in the epilogue, so one would assume that he did count as a true headmaster, no matter who appointed him.

No body. We know where Lupin, Tonks, and Fred's bodies are. Hell, we even know that they moved Voldemort's vile corpse. Either Snape is still rotting in the Shrieking Shack, or he got up and left. I'm gonna go with the latter on that.

Portrait and a body or it didn't happen Jo.
wikkidgothbabewikkidgothbabe on July 26th, 2007 05:56 am (UTC)
i can see him now...
getting up and leaving... by whatever means possible!!!!

I love this idea!!!

@ Snape not having a portrait: Did you guys check out the transcript of the chat with JK yet?
wikkidgothbabe: potterpuff snape7wikkidgothbabe on August 1st, 2007 10:25 pm (UTC)
Oh yes... the one where she only contradicts herself all over the place?

No way...
Snape LIVES!
smartmilk on August 3rd, 2007 11:12 pm (UTC)
Lol that is the best answer ever XD
Liviahalsgoddess on August 10th, 2007 02:42 am (UTC)
As far as I'm concerned, if she didn't specifically write it down about his portrait in the book, it totally doesn't count. I may take things she said about other characters into consideration (guidelines, if you will), but I reserve the right to reject anything I think is crap.

Snape being dead is crap.

i'm with ya all the way!!!!!
