Yeah... Snape has pretty much always been a dick. A sympathetic one toward the end, but still a dick.

Clearly you need to reread the books. Dumbledore didn't want anyone to join the Death Eaters. Snape was already deep in their ranks when he gave Voldemort the fraction of the prophecy that he heard. It's only when he realized that it referred to Lily's family, that he went to Dumbledore and begged him to protect her, and only her. Oh wait, maybe her son too. Maybe. He didn't care. Just Lily. Her fam could die. Didn't matter.
Dumbledore loathed Snape for that, and agreed to use the Aurelius charm, I believe it was called. THAT is when he asked Snape to be a turncoat. As payment for his protection.

I blame him for not trying. He could have been better. He's the one that decided to run with the racist crowd and screw up his friendship with Lily.
James was a dick too, but he grew out of it. Snape didn't.
I don't see the point of romanticizing Snape's obsession with Lily. And that's what it was; obsession, not love. He stalked her. He treated her son like garbage. That's not what love does.

Dumbledore didn't tell him to bully his students. As for constant ridicule, a lot of people are bullied as kids. That doesn't give them the right to become one themselves.
Snape was Neville's worst fear. Not the Cruciartus Curse, not Bellatrix, or spiders, or dementors, SNAPE. Snape was a child's worst fear. That's not forgivable.

Snape was an dick and I will never like him. Understand his reasons, yes. To a degree. But no. I will never like his character.

I almost always pick Charmander. Just pick up a Mankey or Nidoran for some fighting moves before you hit Brock's gym, and a Bellsprout before you get to Misty.

Finally as he refers to the Balrog as the Flame of Udûn, he informs the Balrog that he knows it to be a corrupted Maia in the service of Morgoth from the earliest time when he resided as Melkor in his dark fortress of Utumno broken by the Valar at the awakening of the Elves. He orders it to retreat (go back to the shadows) or face the consequences of divine conflict and final judgement before the Vala Mandos, the fate of all slain creatures

When Gandalf confronts the Balrog on the bridge of Khazad-dûm, and he says: I am a servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the flame of Anor. You cannot pass! The dark fire will not avail you, flame of Udûn.
Gandalf is making three very specific references as both warning and challenge to the Balrog.
By identifying himself as a servant of the Secret Fire (or Flame imperishable), Gandalf is identifying himself as a Maia, an embodied angelic servant of the Valar protecting the light of Creation that Eru Ilúvatar (or God) has set to burn at the center of Arda (Earth).
Wielder of the flame of Anor is a reference to his ability to draw on the power of the sun possibly through the Ring of Fire Narya but maybe also through his own divine origins.

He sounds cool. Terrifying, but cool.
I'm just barely starting into the Silmarillion and have been looking a bunch of stuff up online to make sense of it all, and ended up talking to a coworker about Glorfindel, because I was confused at the term "re-embodied."
She said it was like he basically respawned in Valinor. I asked if that happened with all elves, and she said No, only those who impress the Valar.
Then I said "So defs not Fëanor and his kids then."
She started wheezing from laughing so hard!

Nerds are the best. I need more. I'm starting into the Silmarillion, but I also want a fleshed out novel about the Witch-King of Angmar. That would be awesome.

I didn't have a problem with rats until my roommate got one and let it wander the house unchecked while she was at work. He dragged his huge balls over everything he touched, marked his territory on my stuff, and tried to climb up my leg while I was cooking in the kitchen. She never put him in a ball or anything. It was awful. I haven't liked rats since.

20 F in Northern Utah currently. It would be colder, but we got fresh snow yesterday so the cloud cover is keeping us warmer.

How did they try to map it if they always scrambled it up and pulled it out through the nose?
