myblackeyedfire: (Not Groovy At All!Dumbledore)
It's been threatening to occur and finally has. My interests in Alan Rickman and Snape have split. I love the voice, his nose and all of his random acting roles but he isn't Snape to me. The pudge makes him look too old to play a 38 y.o. and just can't quite capture the sheer malice. Oh, he sounds dangerous, yes, but that isn't enough. He needs to be more. PoA was my favorite movie out of the three but I damn near cried when they cut out the scene where Snape loses it. We didn't see him out of control and furious, spittle flying and eyes blazing. Fandom made him too smooth for that, all sibilance and brandy-sipping internal tumult.

Who do I see as Snape? Trent Reznor, especially in Also fitting is Dov Tiefenbach who reminds me of the Snape seen in the pensieve, writing. For photographic evidence, turn to or It's hard to rely on people when the Snape I envision in my head is more of a drawing with hastily scribbled black lines, and a starched white collar. I want a dangerous Snape, with the cold black eyes and interesting vocabulary words.

Thank you, Darwin. Reading about the thirteen species of finches he found in the Galapagos islands, I saw a picture of one that immediately struck me as familiar. A little black finch with a huge snidely-curved beak looked out from the photo as if it was the star of The Birds. Being utterly obsessed, the whole household heard a cry of "It's him! It's him!"

It makes sense, too. They feed on cactus blooms and live in a generally unfavorable environment with brambles and volcanic terrain. They'd have to be able to live in harsh conditions and scrounge for food and shelter. A large cactus finch, Geospiza conirostris. Okay, the main reason is because it looks like unhappy and cantankerous.

That, and I needed an excuse to procrastinate. *slinks off to do Psychology homework*
