Hard domanda and being honest I should say - we'll never know! But I dare suppose-he did (I prefer this variant) Frankly speaking, I think that Snape cared about Harry only because he was Lily's son and not for any other reason.
I think that if Harry had any other father, Snape might have been slightly più compassionate towards Lily's son. I think it deeply wounded him that Lily chose to marry the one man he couldn't stand, and so this affected any caring emotion he would have had to Lily's child. So maybe Snape did care for Harry, but purely because he was Lily's son and for no other reason - if he had walked into Hogwart's rumoured as "The Chosen One" and had been exactly the same, but without Lily as a mother, I don't believe Snape would have cared at all. But then again, if Lily hadn't been Harry's mother, Snape would probably still have been a death eater, and Harry might have been dead a long time ago.
He cared for Harry because he still loved Lily. He would have no longer loved Lily, he would not have dato a damn. Harry would have been James' son only, same thing. He would have cared for any of Lily's child, whether from James o not. The real test was that Harry was the child of the woman he still loved despite her death, and the son of the man he loathed beyond imagination. Though I suspect him to be much più compassionate than at first sight. Look at how he accepted the Unbreakable Vow to spare Draco's soul to be torn da murder. His capacity to care and feel compassion is most likely one of the least expected traits of his personality - but it's genuine.
I think he did, a little bit, in his own way. Harry did have a lot of traits in common with his mother (no matter how Sev tried to deny it XP) and I think it would have been impossible for him not to notice that.
Yes he cared about harry he tried to save him when quirrel was about to kill harry he helped dumbledore to save harry because it was all that was left of lily and his eyes were just like hers. he always helped harry and looked after him because he knew he would save harry for lily's sacrifice
he will foreever Amore her until the giorno he goes with her.
I don't know. Maybe he did. I think he might have really (and honestly) tried to dislike/hate Harry because of his past with James, but was never able to because Harry was also Lily's son and Severus always loved her.
Yes and No. Yes, because he was the son of Lily. I mean, a part of him would always Amore Lily, and therefore he almost had to at least like Harry.. just a bit at least. And then again no. Losing Lily, and then seeing her together with Potter must've been fucking hard. Harry being so much alike with his father, i can imagine why he hated him
I honestly think that he did care for Harry. As much as people think he didnt like him he cared for harry somewhewre inside and helped him all he could like in the 7th book when he sent his patronu to help harry and other time to when Remus turned into a werewolf he helped and protected all of the facts are in the libri and they are all good/great caring moments
I think he did in a small way o he wouldn't have done what he did. Harry had Lily's eyes, but because harry looked like James so much Snape assumed that Harry would have the same arrogance and smugness that James did. I think he was conflicted a bit, but he still did what he had to do.
I think he always cared, but hated James os much that it come out on Harry! I mean James married the one girl he loved. I also think he wanterd to help Harry defeat You-know-Who because he killed lilly!
In the best way and as well as anyone could under the circumstances. Being James' son. I believe even despite Lily he wouldn't have tried so hard t protect him and teach him. Even up to his fleeing Hogwarts after killing Dumbledor he still yelled at him for talking out a charm not just thinking it in his head. If he didn't have some feelings at that point he wouldn't have dato a dang.
No, I don't think Severus cared about Harry in a personal sort of way. He cared about Lily and in turn, did whatever he could to protect Harry. The only reason he did so much for Harry, and even Harry's friends, is because of Lily. I don't think Severus was able to fully look past the similarities between Harry and James. And even if he did, everything was for Lily. From the time he decided to unisciti Dumbledore to Nagini attacking and killing him in the Shrieking Shack, everything was for Lily. He couldn't save Lily and he hated himself for it, so it's pretty obvious that he would do anything to at least protect her son.
hehehe i know this awnser is goign to get some wtfs are te tlaking about but oh well,
YES, i absoutly think he cared for harry i think well secretly well nto so secretly anymore that severus was harrys father
euns bwhind brick bacheca
NO I DO NTO NEED TO GO TO A EMNTAL HOSIPTAL! it jsut makes snese to mean and i cna give s=you soem good reason to why i think this .
but plus the reason i think this he did care for harry. is not only did he protect harry but his gernal reaction to find otu about haryrs amiditae deaht. and the fact that this man does not strike me as someone to not counite to take care of things he does not care for.
ps. don't judge me for having my own thoguhts on think severus is harrys father. i don't want to hear it.
i get that a lot of te know o think he ids defaintly jmes. and that is your opionin and i rspect that. so respect mien.
I think in the beginning, Harry reminded him to much of James. I believe it was too much of a challenge to separate his memories of James from the way Harry looked, especially at and in Hogwarts, the site of all his most horrible memories of James and the Mauraders, and Lily's defection. Quite frankly, I've always believed that it was at the moment when Albus told him his plan that Harry must die at the 'fated' moment, that Harry became real as a person to him. That was when Harry was separated most definitely from James' image and placed in the same category that Snape held, that as 'pawn' in the game being played between Voldemort and Albus. It truly made Harry and Severus equals in the same field. And maybe brought Severus to a new understanding of all Harry's (and Hermione and Ron) past misdeeds as Harry struggled against other's control of his life. Something I'm sure that Severus felt but suppressed due to his overwhelming feelings of guilt and struggle for atonement.
Can te imagine the quagmire of emotion that filled Severus upon casting Avada Kadavra on Albus? Yes, it was at Albus' request. But, have te not ever felt betrayal at a parent figure o some other important person for not telling te a truth they knew, from hiding it from you? te have to mean Avada Kadavra when te cast it. Yes, he was doing it upon Albus' request, yes, it was a mercy to him, yes, it was incorporated in Albus' plan. But, here was the man that had quided him in all his actions to protect this child of Lily's, even though this child constantly reminded him of James, but he did his job because this was Lily's child, and to suddenly find that Albus planned for Harry to die all along, without sharing that with him.
I think da that time, it was the absolute for Severus. He was probably glad to die before Harry. Can te imagine after all those years, to be told Harry HAD to die, and that he must stand da when it happens, after having to stand da earlier when Charity B. was killed in front of him? I think it was at the moment that Albus told him Harry must die, that Severus Lost all hope.
So, long answer short, I don't think Severus Snape always cared about Harry. I don't think he 'cared' about Harry at all. I think Harry was just James' child, that was born da Lily, till that fateful moment Albus told him about Harry's fate. Then Harry became a real person, became Lily's son, in Severus' eyes. Not that Severus' would have 'cared' for Harry at that point, but empathized with him, that I could see.
I don't think he ever really cared for Harry. He was only carrying out what he thought was his honor-bound duty to Lily and Dumbledore to protect her son, possibly as a way to assuage his guilt over causing her death.
no I think he began to like him in the 6Th book. Becaue remember james and snape were enemies in hogwarts. But still i mean snape always loved lily. I kinda feel bad for snape he loved lily but, lily choose james
