The 16 Most Iconic Professor Snape Moments

In loving memory of Alan Rickman.

Alan Rickman, an incredible actor who is most well-known for his role as Severus Snape in the Harry Potter series, died on Thursday at the age of 69. Here are some of Rickman's most iconic Professor Snape moments that really proved that both Snape and the Harry Potter series are always in our hearts.

1. When he first introduces Harry in his usual condescending tone.

"Mr. Potter. Our new celebrity."

2. When he Iconically says to "turn to page 394."

3. Any time Snape whacked Ron or Harry on the head.

Every single time.

4. When he throws the moonlight pun on Lupin during the Marauder's Map night scene.

"Well, well. Out for a little walk in the moonlight, are we?"

5. When Snape physically shielded Ron, Harry and Hermione from Lupin as he changes into a werewolf.

6. When Umbridge questions Snape about failing to become the Defense Against the Dark Arts Professor, and he responds with unparalleled sass.

7. When he yells at Harry and Ron for the flying car Incident.

"I assure you that were you in Slytherin and your fate rested with me, the both of you would be on the train home tonight!"

8. When he accuses Harry of stealing from him to make polyjuice potion.

9. When he deflects McGonagall's attack and you see the sadness in his eyes for being in that position.

10. When he brings to Harry's attention how life isn't fair.

He lived an incredibly lonely life, yet always for the good of others.

11. When he was tired of Hermione's bull crap.

12. When he refuses to injure Harry when Harry tries to attack him for Dumbledore's death.

13. When Snape led Harry to the sword of Gryffindor.

His Patronus was a doe. So was Lily's. I'm holding back tears.

14. When he urges Harry to take his tears to the Pensieve to understand everything.

15. When he sees Lily in Harry during his last breath.

16. Literally the entire flashback scene when Harry realizes Snape's bravery and the love he had for his mother.

Alan Rickman brought to life the beloved Snape who everyone wept for and saw as arguably the most important character of the series. He will live on for always in our hearts and in our marathons.

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.
