Re: Snape and Lily: Joint Character Analysis v.4

Yes, he did love Lily. That one at least we should be certain of. His love for Lily is one of the major plot facts building the novels' main theme. If it were anything less than actual love, it all loses all sense at once. Plus, Snape's remorse and conversion from a Death Eater into "probably the bravest man", which according to JKR is one of the backbones of the whole story, can't really be built onto "kinda sorta" love. In the context of these series and from the viewpoint of its theme, it was as much love as it can ever be.
