Severus Snape was one of the most beloved fictional characters in book and movie history. Done.
In the beginning of both the books and subsequently the movies, you probably thought of him as a curmudgeon, potions professor who wanted nothing but to make Harry's life miserable. That is until you hear his back story and want to hug him close.
Amazing, right?! If you listen closely, you can hear Harry Potter books opening back up again, and the sound of the Sorcerer's Stone DVD being placed into a DVD player.
