I Heart Characters: Week 9!


“I Heart Characters! is a weekly meme hosted by Dani @ Perspective of a Writer to showcase our book blogger love for characters! Each week she’ll supply a topic and you’ll supply the character. Post on whatever day suits you, about characters from whatever media you love (books, movies, K-dramas, television, manga, anime, webtoons, whatever!) and link up on Thursday so YOU and others can blog hop and share the character love. ♡”

This weeks topic is: A Grump with a Heart of Gold (Characters with rude or disgruntled personalities deserve love too… especially if they thaw towards the MC, eventually.)

Whelp, I did it again, broke my number 1 rule. Here you go… Harry Potter for the win.

Severus Snape from Harry Potter (Duh!)


These 3 things are proof Snape truly had a heart, even if he didn’t show it too often.

1 All 7 books, it was obvious he not only hated Harry, but every student who wasn’t in Slytherin.



However, when it came down to it, he was willing to sacrifice himself to save 3 Gryffindors.


2 He spent most of his life pretending to be someone he wasn’t so he could spy on Voldemort. In the end, saving everyone.


3 In the end, the biggest proof Snape indeed had a heart was his never ending love for Lilly.



Snape might have been a jerk. He might have been a character we hated more than liked. But in the end he always had the best intentions and he was alway willing to fight for what was right.


Side note: I truly enjoyed this post on “10 Things Severus Snape actually likes” on Pottermore. You should go check it out.


Can you think of another grump with a heart of gold? Let me know!

  1. GAHHHHH! I love Snape! I totally didn’t think of him! The gifs though totally sell it for me… I secretly liked him when I learned Harry’s dad bullied him. While being bullied isn’t an excuse I just thought with his actions in the present he was never as evil as he seemed. And Alan Rickman KILLED him! Totally enbodies Snape for me. ❤️ Perfect Anna!


    1. Thanks Dani! I totally agree. His character made so much more sense after finding out about Harry’s dad. Alan Rickman was a perfect Snape 💙


    1. Omgoodness! How did I not think of Tyrion!?! He’s perfect for this week’s topic! He’s also my favorite GOT character 😂
