Severus Snape / Molly Weasley: Getting The Job Done - Always

He's THE Potions Master.
He worked for Voldemort.
He spied on Voldemort.
He knows the good side and the bad side.
He has years of experience teaching.
He was the bravest Slytherin that ever lived.
He's just brilliant and awesome.

Snape would be a great Minister!
Come and show your support in BOLD for Snape!

*headdesk*

Darn you......I nominated and threw my support behind Luna, and you tempt me so!!!!

I'm so pretending I have two votes.

I almost died of shock that you opened a thread for Luna.

Re: Severus Snape For Minister

Well, I did that for a couple reasons:
  • Snape is terrible at making himself popular-- the goal of all politicians
  • A Snape nomination would lead to James/Sirius nomination, and then.....bloodshed would ensue as the two opposing sides had it out again.
  • I want Ministry workers to wear gurdyroots.

1. That's true, Snape is terrible at making himself popular, but that's why he will have a devoted team of people helping him.

2. I think James and Sirius would get nominated without Snape being nominated anyway. So let's give Severus a chance.

Re: Severus Snape For Minister

Look at the way Snape won the war for Harry Potter. We need more guys like him in the WW. I'm for Snape as the next Minister for Magic.

He'll rule from his portrait, right?

VOTE FOR SNAPE AS MINISTER.

Re: Severus Snape For Minister

ZOMG seriously? Seeing the way he served as Head of Slytherin House, I think it's rather obvious that a wizarding world under his authority would be rather totalitarian and biased in favour of, er, certain individuals of the Ministry, I'd say.

Not to mention he'd probably outlaw 'know-it-all's for anyone other than from the Slytherin house.

Really? In the light of the revelations of DH, you still think that Snape gives a stuff about the Ministry or pretending to throw his weight around? He's had enough of that rubbish for a lifetime, I'd say.

As it is, much as it pains me to say it I do consider dear Severus wildly unsuited for this particular role.

Of course he'd be a blast. Snarking endlessly and terrorising Ministry staff from his portrait. Reducing poor Ministry minions to jelly.

So, yep, he'd enjoy himself no end but not take the role seriously enough, IMO.

And he's not cut out to be a public relations officer.

Besides ... I want him to have a peaceful post-Hogwarts life, wherever he may be.


If I'm tempted to vote for anybody, it's Harry. Although I'm not sure he'd want the job either!

Yes, actually. I'm not really sure he'd be chummy or even supportive of, for instance, the trio having their respective positions in the Ministry (assuming Ron is an auror, I'm kind of confused about whether or not he's working full time in the joke shop with George). I never got any impression that he would change his attitude towards them even in DH, really, so I don't think he'd really be an unbiased Minister for Magic in that sense.

Eh, but to each his own. I'm voting for Harry, so let the best man win!

This Is Why You Should Have Voted For Voldemort Instead!!!

I think I'm pretty sure that if I were given a choice between Snape and Voldemort, I won't be choosing Voldy for the job.

Re: Severus Snape For Minister

I don't see Snape being too mean, or doing anything to endanger people's lives and the Minsitry's efficiency like firing Harry. Harry helped the Auror department run better, and all Snape really wanted from any of his students was for them to behave competently. Now that Harry has, I don't think he's going to fire him...maybe just throw his nasty looks every now and then.


Now, there is a little problem coming from one of his positive traits. Severus, true to the "verus" in his name, tells the truth. A lot. Even if it's a bad idea to.
Um...I don't fancy going into war because he told the Hungarian MoM what he really thought of him.

I agree. If someone is doing his or her job correctly, I don't think Snape would fire them.

Yes, he can do that. But then again, I think he really did have excellent control over his emotions. When he had a job to do (like spying on Voldemort) he did the job and did Voldemort ever figure out Snape was spying on him? Nope. Harry had to tell him.
I think Snape would know when the best way of doing things would be to control his true feelings in order to get a job done.
He may not be the most pleasant candiate, but he's a brilliant, talented wizard and that shouldn't be over-looked.

Re: Severus Snape For Minister

Well, Snape's lot looks bleak! There are only 2 of us who want Snape as Minister.

Everyone else has forgotten him. Come on guys! Vote Snape! The SAVIOUR!

Re: Severus Snape For Minister

Erm, Priya? When you capitalize the word "saviour", it implies, um...Jesus.

Although my RL friends and I do have an inside joke about Snape and Jesus.
