WWSS: What Would Snape Say?

Post  Verity Weasley on Tue Jun 03, 2014 5:23 am

The enigmatic Severus Snape was a favourite character of many forum members in the 'good old days' and generated more discussion than any other, so it seemed only fitting to have a Snape-based game for our reunion.   

The aim of this game is simple. One person will post a quote from any character, anywhere in the HP series, and other forumers have to guess (or remember) what Snape said in reply to that quote. If necessary, clues may be given, such as which book the quote comes from, or who the speaker is. The winner will then post a new quote so the game can continue. In order to keep the game moving, one of the 'Reunion Game Moderators' may step in and post a new quote if there is a significant delay between the winning guess being made and a new quote being posted.

   

Over to you Julia, to get us started!

Here's the first quote. Enjoy!    

She hesitated.

"I know he believes you, but -"


So... what did Snape reply?

I have no idea, without going searching for it, but that's not really in the spirit of the thing. I peeked at Shepherdess' guess and that sounds plausible, but here's my wild guess:

Spoiler:
"You still question my allegiance?"

Another wild guess - Smile

Spoiler:
"But you doubt the Dark Lord's judgement?"

OK, Mona's answer is the closest (close in spirit at least if not in the exact words   ), so I declare Mona the winner.

Snape's original words are here (in a spoiler box so you can still make a guess until the new puzzle is up):

Spoiler:
"You think he is mistaken? Or that I somehow hoodwinked him? Fooled the Dark Lord, the greatest wizard, the most accomplished Legilimens the world has ever seen?"

Indeed, what an idea.  

It's your turn now, Mona!

I'm sorry Mona, but in the interests of keeping this game active during the reunion, I'm going to post the next quote.

"Do you have any idea why Dumbledore has consistently refused to appoint you?"

What did Snape say?

Oops! I didn't think my answer would win!   

My answer (and I hope it is also Snape's answer) to this question -

Spoiler:
(With Snapey sneer  ) "Why don't you ask him?"

Ooh Mona! Are you still there?

Your latest guess is also very, very close, so please go ahead and post the next quote.

You're good at this!   

What did Snape Say?

Spoiler:
"I suggest you ask him."

OK then -   

Here's the next quote -

"Why can't Dumbledore teach Harry?....Why you?"

What did Snape say in reply?

"Because as Headmaster he is in a position to delegate less desirable tasks. I assure you I did not beg for the job."

Ooh, good one! Wild guess approaching...

Spoiler:
Dumbledore knows I am the superior legilimens.

Edit: Now I've just checked Julia's answer and I'm pretty sure that's the right one!

Yes, Julia's got it! Here's the exact quote -

"Why can't Dumbledore teach Harry?" asked Sirius aggressively. "Why you?"

"I suppose because it is a headmaster's privilege to delegate less enjoyable tasks," said Snape silkily. "I assure you I did not beg for the job."

LOL, here's the new one:

"Some credit must go to you, of course, you taught him for five years!"

What did Snape say?

Well done, Verity, it's your turn next!

The exact quote:

Spoiler:
"Funny, I never had the impression that I managed to teach Potter anything at all."

OK, here's the next one.

"Reckon they were after potion ingredients, eh? Not hiding anything else in your office, are you?"

WWSS?

Spoiler:
Snape to Fake-Moody: "You know very well that I'm hiding nothing in my office! You searched it quite thoroughly yourself!"  
Not the exact words, I'm sure, but something similar.

Ooh, very good Julia. That's close enough.

The exact quote:
Spoiler:
"You know I'm hiding nothing, Moody," he said in a soft and dangerous voice, "as you've searched my office pretty thoroughly yourself."

Over to you again! (I hope some others will come along and join in too.   )

Most Forumers are probably asleep right now, but I also hope that others will join in.   

"Yeah? Well, I'm finding that hard at the moment," Harry snarled.
