    I agree with your assessment that Snape was smart enough to carry an antidote to the venom, and likely even had some on him. However, I think if he intended to use it he would've done so immediately, especially if Harry hadn't been there to get the information he needed. But since he was, and he'd accomplished what he set out to do, I think that ultimately when Snape looked death in the eye (much like Dumbledore did and Harry was about to do) he greeted it like an old friend.

    Right, he lived because he had secretly married his former student who was obsessed with him since her first day of class. She was always late for class even though it was her 1st class every morning and he would stand in front of her table where she was sitting and look down at her and say, "Late again, Miss Kohler? What am I going to do with you?" Year after year this happened from the time she began school at Hogwarts until she graduated. They grew closer as friends over the years but were madly in love with each other. Snape being a real gentleman never touched her until she was older, you know, of age. And they married and had children but kept this all hidden. When he never let anyone know he was still alive, he took his family and moved to Scarborough. And we are still married to this day. As is A.R. and I can't tell you any more. 🤭

    I would like to think of this theory as something that makes Snape even more heroic. He could have had the antidote, but he felt like if my job's done I'm free to go. That makes it even more tragic.

    Wait, Snape's parents were abusive? Is that pottermore lore? or did I miss something? I find it rather interesting that when harry forced snape to relive his childhood trauma, his subconscious went with OWL day at Hogwarts and not that scene from "The Cell" where the dad caught the kid playing with a barbie doll.

    On a related note: if Nagini could pass the ownership of the elder wand to Voldemort due to her being a Voldy-horcrux, surely that would mean Harry would also give Voldy ownership of the wand due to him being a horcrux too?

    I believe he took an anti venom and replenish potion every time he is near Voldemort and negini. He is a potions master after all. The potion slowly revived him and he was able to walk away after giving Harry the last clue he needed to defeat Voldemort. He then hide his identity to live a safe quiet life just in case Voldemort followers want to get revenge. Better to think he Is dead so he can live peacefully.

    The question is not if snape could survive, he konws enough and has got the brains. The question is what for? He has no reason to live, because 1. Lilli is dead 2. Lillis son is about to be dead and he cannot protect him 3. Dumbledores last order was done 4. The battle of hogwarts is about to be won (snape should understand, what harry going to voldy means) 5. He shows harry the memory, that makes clear, he is no death eater, but only because he needed harry to belive him to save the world. He would nevet give this information away, because it is kind of his worst memory 6.While he could just go to azcaban and shield his mind fron the dementors easily, he would really get bored Thereby, if he just decides to die, he might be remembered as a hero without humiliation, he also will finally return to lilly. (If snape used the deluminator, would he apparate into a vulcano?(then he dies and gets to his hearts desire) :D )

    I'm not sure that Snape would want this 'peaceful' life. I don't belive his mind found that kind of peace. I'm not saying he necessarily wanted to die, but he was smart enough to know that with his death, no one alive would know about Dumbledor's plan with the Elder Wand. And maybe by dying while serving the 'good' side once again, he would find redemption for not saving Lily.

    The stress of years of living a double life and the death of his always love by voldemort, whom he HAD TO HATE probably left him wanting to give up on life. How could he ever explain what he had been doing and who would believe it without seeing it the way Harry did.

    It’s all too vague to know for sure. Snape’s body wasn’t mentioned but neither was the absence of his body. I think it would be a pretty a big deal to people if his body was never found especially given the fact that Peter Petigru (? I can’t spell lol) was assumed dead because they found nothing of his body but a finger.

      What she has done has damaged her reputation. I see no problem in separating the art from the artist, and continuing to uplift the art for what it is without continually drawing attention to the problematic creator. Saying the author gives me comfort, because those that really understand why they are choosing to make that distinction appreciate the careful choice of words. Because I’m not about to give up on the wizard of world that I’ve come to love, but she has repeatedly doubled down on statements and beliefs that I wholeheartedly do not agree with, and I appreciate her name not getting mentioned as often as possible.
