Harry Potter Moment of The Week! – Sneaky Snapeses.

Harry Potter Moment of the Week is an amazing weekly blog event hosted by Uncorked Thoughts. I’m thoroughly stoked to have come across her blog and this feature, because if there’s one thing I could talk about on a weekly basis (try all the time), it would be Harry Potter.


This week’s Harry Potter MoTW: Could you ever be a spy like Snape?

Absolutely, completely definitely not.

Firstly and foremostly because I am a terrible liar. Really, really bad. I can’t even call in fake-sick to work, I feel so guilty about lying. Apparantly it shows all over my face when I’m telling a fib, and I’m terrible at thinking on my feet to work around a lie. I’d be asked a related question and would crumble like a stale biscuit.

It’s a personality trait (I refuse to call it a flaw because I don’t think the ability to lie successfully is something I aspire to) that I’m perfectly happy with. Lying is a skill I have no desire or intention to perfect. If for any reason I don’t want to be honest or talk about something, I’m much more likely to divert the conversation or distract completely to a meanial topic.

So if I was Snape, I think I’d have been caught out in the double-double-cross a long time ago. I don’t think ol’ Voldy would have been suckered into talking about the weather or the latest episode of Game of Thrones instead every time he brought up my espionage. Then I’d have been unfortunately brutally murdered, the whole story would have been ruined and the world would be doomed to a life of muggle enslavement.

Probably best to let Snape keep the job, eh?

      1. That’s not a problem! You can totally still participate! Just link back to the host’s original post and add your name to the list of participants on the page! You should definitely join in, it’s fun to write about Harry potter! πŸ™‚


  1. I like your reasoning. I actually consider myself a pretty good liar. But, while I think I would be pretty good at Occlumency (I’m pretty good at keeping my thoughts to myself when I want) I don’t think I could handle the pressure that Snape was under constantly. Especially since he had no support system to lean on. Talk about being truly alone. Here’s my HP MOTW.

    1. Thank you! and no, he wasn’t! Dumbledore also seemed more never-talk-in-complete-understandable-sentences. I don’t think Snape could have had a proper good talk about his sneaky feelings with him anyway…
