This is my tribute to Sir Alan Rickman.
I feel like I had to do this. I want to celebrate the great Alan Rickman, to honor him, and to show my gratitude and respect towards him.
Now, before you start reading this, let us all…
The Death of Alan Rickman
I will not make this long, because ya’ll know this things about him.
The news of his death saddened me, it’s very surprising. I was standing in a train, on my way to University on Friday morning, when I saw this woman searching on google photos of Severus Snape. I heart pounded on the thought that she might be also a potterhead. She then switched to search Alan Rickman on the web, and I thought, she might be a fan of Alan, or there might be news about him. I went out to the station still thinking about it.
I read the news when I was already home, I almost cried. A song suddenly played to my mind, ‘A Sky Full Of Stars’ by coldplay. Honestly, this is so true. A lot of the best actors was taken from this world, if not, very recently. Heaven is very much full of stars now.
The only upside of this news for me is that now, Alan will not endure any more pain. The downside is on us; we lost such a great actor, a great man.
I hope he already did all the things he’d always wanted, because he deserve it so much. He deserved all the best in life. He’s a kind person who does not only thinks for himself, but for the greater good. And this also goes for Snape. He deserved much more than what he got. Than what he settled for.
I’ve always loved him. ALWAYS.
Come on, who always thought about Snape when hearing ‘always’? *cries*
Since the first Harry Potter, up to the 6th book, I’ve never held a grudge on him. He always shows every bit of his good side in some events, although he might or we might not be aware of it or we often take it for grantend.
I love it when Snape smiles!
Severus Snape is such a great character, and Alan Rickman gave justice to this role. He even made the character better. He is a hero for me. Harry is very right when he said the Snape is the bravest man he’s ever known. He made me love Slytherin. He made me embrace my Slytherin side. He’s the best proof that being in Slytherin doesn’t mean you have to be full blood and bad.
I cried when I saw the scene where he was being bullied by James and the other Marauders. But he never let that come in his way. He just took it in, and used it to his advantage, he used it as a motivation.
A Hero Lurking Inside
In every man, there is a hero and a monster lurking inside. Sometimes, we needed to be scratched in order to let it out.
In Severus’ case, Lily’s death was an instrument to let the hero inside him finally come out. It was an eye opening moment for him. He was able to finally identify the right from wrong, and which side to fight with.
Why is Severus Snape A Hero
1. He’s brave enough to fool the Dark Lord.
2. He’s brave to protect the son of the love of his life with the man who made fun of him all his life as a Hogwarts’ student.
3. He killed his friend, Dumbledore, for the good of everyone, to protect everyone, even tho he knows he will recieve so much criticism and people will think badly of him for the rest of his life
4. Do you remember the part in Prisoner Of Azkaban, when he was so protective of the trio when Lupin was about to shift to his werewolf form, even though Harry Potter just attacked him.
5. He sent out his patronous to protect Harry Potter.
There are a lot of things about him that is so heroic, those are just the ones that are very powerful.
To sum it all up, HE IS SELFLESS.
I hope he was able to put a stopper to his own death.
My favourite Quotes by Professor Severus Snape
This is my most favourite quote by him.
It’s so powerful and deep.
It has a lot of meaning. It is more than the word itself.
We know that when Severus said it, he means so much more. You can just feel it. It’s so sincere. It says a million different things. It’s just like that. No arguments.
“You have your mother’s eyes”
Finally! He said it! He let it out!
You can see in his face how it’s comforting and relieving and satisfying to finally say something you’ve been keeping to yourself for a long time. And now he finally admitted it, with so much sincerity and love.
It might be that he didn’t want to accept that too, the fact the eyes of the woman he loved can be seen from the son of his enemy.
It would be nice too, if Harry and Snape could be family. Could live like a family. If Severus didn’t die, they might get really close to each other after the war. He can make him a godfather of one of his children. It would be great!
Can you imagine how Severus is as a godfather?
When Harry’s kids would request a pie. LOL
He may still be mean to Harry but be very gentle to his children. He can also take care of his kids sometimes, and fight with Hagrid on who gets to take care of them next.
It would be nice to see Snape happy.
“Turn to page 394!”
Honestly tho, who can forget this?
I can’t even read it without saying it in Snape’s accent. LOL
So now, in memory of Professor Snape, let’s all open our books, and ‘turn to page 394‘, all at once.
Do you ever wonder how Alan Rickman managed to speak without opening his lips fully?
My Favourite Alan Rickman Quotes
He’s a very inspirational man, very intelligent, humble, charming, funny, sensible.
We can learn so much from him, just as we learned a lot from one of the characters he played, Professor Severus Snape.
Here are the most intelligent things he said:
He is so right about this. We all know how Harry Potter changed our lives. How his character/s, changed the way we view life.
All kinds of entertainment, from books to movies, from music to theater, has a way to make a change. It is how the people will take it in.
He was such a man! I can’t say anything else, hands and wands up to him!
Isn’t it amazing how his life turned out even unplanned?
As a theater actress myself, I can say that this is very true. He said it in exactly the right words. “This is very wise”
Most of the times we would want to know our future, we don’t want to be surprised, we want to plan, we want everything to go our way, but it can’t be like that. You can’t just rely on astrology or things like that in real life. This world is created unsure, we might think it’s complicated because we like to complicate things, we secretly want to be challenge. But when challenge comes our way, it’s hard because it’s not what we expect, it’s difficult because we want it to be easy.
When there comes a time that you need to choose, think of the worst that could happen first, so then it would be easy for us to conjure the pain that will come from it.
I love this quote. I will surely do this too.
FYI, this is not a quote by Alan Rickman, because some of you might think that. This is a quote from someone who entered a contest that has Deathly Hallows 2 prizes and she’s stating why she’s want to win. I forgot the article where I read it, but they put there the whole stuff the contestant posted. And that is the last part of it.
Have you read Daniel Radcliffe’s post for the tribute for Alan? He told that if you called Alan, he will surely get back to you within a day or next. That’s amazing given that he’s a very busy man.
That just shows how great and humble he is.
I love this
I want to see it ♡
Honestly, I didn’t thought he’d keep it. That just shows what kind of a man he was.
Can you imagine? LOL
WHAT WILL PROFESSOR SNAPE SEE WHEN HE LOOKED AT THE MIRROR OF ERISED?
This is what he’ll see.
Himself with Lily and their kids. He will see his very own dream family.
I think Severus secretly wants this. He secretly wants to have a family. And of course, he wants to have it with the love of his wicked life, Lily.
Severus would be a great father. He’s an amazing and brave, brave man. He will teach his kids, potions, like, of course, and how to be morally good. How to make right choices, and how to love truly.
HOW ALAN RICKMAN INSPIRES ME AND THE WHOLE LOT OF PEOPLE
He tells a lot of words of wisdom. He’s very generous in giving it. You can actually quote everything he says because every bit of it makes sense, every bit of it is true and real. He’s not afraid to speak his mind, and he always recognizes people. I remember when Daniel Radcliffe said to his tribute, Alan never misses his plays, he’s always there to support him even though he didn’t asked him too. That’s how he is. A great and amazing friend.
He says a lot of interesting things about life that we fail to see, or that, sometimes, we don’t want to see. We secretly wants to be surprised, all of us. We want to be fooled.
To Mr. Alan Rickman
I would like to express my gratitude, thank you for making such great movies. Thank you for making a great character, Professor Severus Snape, even better. Thank you for making Hans Gruber of Die Hard, my favorite villain, that was an awesome fall, by the way. Thank you for inspiring a lot of people to do their best, do what we love most, to actually LIVE our lives. This is such a short life to live, we shall make the best of it, every second of every minute of every hour of everyday. I hope you did that. Even tho for us, your fans, have seen the best of you, we hope you are in content for the past of almost 70 years of your life, with no regrets, just smiles, laughters, and tons of love.
One of my life goals is to meet you, but now I shall sew you in grave. The thought of you in there saddens me, you don’t fit to be in there. It is so unlikely. It is not beautiful.
Your legacy will remain in this world and will not rot. You will always be celebrated and remembered, not just by us, potterheads, but by the whole world. We honor you, Sir Alan Rickman.
I hope you got all the best in the world because you deserve it, you’re really a very good person, with an awesome purpose in life.
You are a great loss to the world. Such an intelligent man.
My thoughts and condolences are with Sir Alan’s family and friends. May you all have strength through this difficult time.

TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
