message 9: by Brittany (new)

Brittany (gamerkiti) I am loving your answers guys!! Especially some of yours E.A.!!! And Jody, most people don't view Snape as a "hero" but I most definitely support your decision to name him...he's kind of like Frankenstein, just misunderstood (and a bit of an a$$ sometimes) :)
