Lol I see what you did there with the emojis. 😂

Much as I appreciate Snape, though, I don’t see him as innocent. In fact, I don’t think he sees himself as innocent of Lily’s death. It’s his regret over his actions imo that leads him to agree to Dumbledore’s offer to protect the boy. Snape was so distraught that he wanted to die. Dumbledore gave him a way forward.

I’m not going to pretend that Snape was kind to Harry, but I do think he wanted to do something to redeem the horrible choices he’d made in his youth. In order to want to redeem them, though, he had to realize they were horrible choices. I personally doubt he would have agreed to take on Dumbledore’s task if he’d thought himself innocent.

I hope that makes sense. 😄
