I agree. I also think that Snape never forgave himself for his mistake, but I think he at some level needed something from Harry on that. I think Snape felt his actions had taken away Harry parents and he wanted Harry's forgiveness on that, not because it would change the way he felt about it, but because it would tell him that Harry had come to terms with his parents's deaths on some level. I think Snape wanted that.

I don't think Snape ever thought his actions or Harry's forgiveness in some way could make right his wrongs.

And of course IMO, beyond his culpability in the deaths of Lily and James, and the orphaning of Harry, Severus asked no quarter from anyone and accepted none.

The man who, in my opinion, won the war against Voldemort for Harry Potter and the Light! Severus Snape!
