snape and lily - somebody that i used to know by shorelle snape and lily - somebody that i used to know by shorelle

But I don’t want to live that way
Reading into every word you say
You said that you could let it go
And I wouldn’t catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know…


This song came on again and I was thrown back a few years because I associated it a lot with the breakdown of Snape and Lily’s friendship. (it’s… just a really resonant, bitter and sad song, and works just as well for the falling out of a friendship imo) 

It’s probably pretty obvious what this is referencing... aka I’m a hack who only ever parodies songs from pop culture g o o d b y e :dummy:

(p.s. for something even more tragic check this piano cover... ;_; )

I've only heard parts of that song... but I can see the connection between Lily and Snape.  

Now I'm thinking about the scene in The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 where Harry looks into the Pensieve, and discovers the great things that Severus did to help Harry, and find out that he really was not such a bad person after all.  That reminds me; I haven't seen the Harry Potter saga in a long time.  It's been a while since I've seen them all in order; maybe I'll do a Harry Potter marathon sometime!

Yeah, it's been a long while since I've seen/read HP and it's scary to think the last book came out 7 years ago..... - I was really into the series when I was younger and need to revisit them again too :D

This is absolutely beautiful.

But could you do one with Lily and James?

Very few people give James Potter any love. But he became a better person over time.

I'd love to see that.

Thank you so much! I will if I ever get inspiration or an idea for it :D

Yeah, I agree that he did become better as an adult! Do you use/visit Tumblr at all? James Potter seems to be a pretty popular character on there, I've seen lots of great fanart of him by talented artists! (try searching for James Potter or Jily (James/Lily) for some cool stuff :))
