Well, you can relax and finish the story. You alredy know my
feelings on the topic, so take that as a hint.

I only read book 7 the once, though I did go trawling back for
information from certain scenes. I really don't know if she was or
wasn't in canon. I don't think she was. I think it would have kinda
stuck out and the backlash on JKR would have been pretty fierce.

Yeah, I can, but I don't know if I can make him as evil as the chem
prof did. I mean, we know what Snape did in canon, but some of the
fanon Snape's are much worse. I still find it amusing to read some
of the reactions to Dumbles and Snape. Really, I think most people
read into behaviours what they want to see, and I'm not trying to
make either of those two more or less good or evil than they were in
canon. Of course, the changed circumstances may push them more
towards one direction than the other.
I hate to admit that I have yet to try to write Snape, but I do know I have never liked his immature, bullying character, so he will never come off as a good guy in any of my stories. He's a first class prick in canon, and nothing will change that. Dumbledore allowing the man to teach only confirms, in my mind at least, that the old fool was getting senile, and cared more for his efforts against Voldemort than for his students.
