    Excellent episode as always, Snapecasters. I loved your “I am a Snapefan” segment! The interview with Orson Scott Card was really really wonderful. I’m going to be in New York on Friday night, too and it would be great to be able to tell him that personally but I’m sure it will not be uncrowded there! Safe trip, those of you who are travelling to places far away and we all look forward to your August 1 episode, however the book ends.

    What a great episode, guys^^
    I especially liked the group therapy session with Lookfar! Oh, I can’t believe that the End is so near D: *sob* I feel a mix of fear and excitement inside me as DH approaches, but no matter what happens I can’t wait to discuss the book with you guys at Sectus!

    See you in a few days :D

    God I love you guys! Where exactly in Philidelphia will you guys be? I live there, but far from center city so it might be difficult to make it. I really hope you guys will hold some other parties for like HBP (aka Harry Potter and Severus Snape) movie.

    I am absolutely thrilled that I discovered Snapecast. . .you don’t even know. I actually just stumbled upon Snapecast yesterday(lucky me) and have been downloading like crazy so that I might finish all the episodes before the book comes out. This is all just so exciting and extremely depressing at the same time. I almost don’t want to know what happens; just have J.K leave me to my imagination for a few more months. . .or years.

    I got all choked up during the Snapefan Medley. You guys rock. And…even though I would never spoil, especially on Snapecast, is it possible to still get the punishment? Only if delieverd by a certain ex-death eater, I might add.

    I’m sure he’d be more than happy to oblige…

    That was great guys. I loved the “I’m a Snape fan” and the wizard rock. You guys do great work. :)

    Before Snapecast my Harry potter fandom experience was no existent! you guys are awesome and complete my fandom obsession, infact you fueled it! i;m gonna miss snapecast :’( The end is WAY too near. You guys rock, thanks for another great episode of snapecast which almost brought me to tears with the realisation of the END….

    Funny and fabulous as always! The Orson segment was especially interesting. I didn’t understand the last 10 seconds of the episode though. It’s been a lot of fun listening to Snapecast and I can’t believe the last book is almost here. It’s really eerie to think that whatever we’re thinking now about Snape and the series is going to be different after finding out the truth (I hope) this weekend.

    Fantastic episode as always, guys!!

    What bookshop will Wendy be at? I’d love to meet up with a snapecaster on the release day :)

    Thanks for another great episode! I really loved the Therapy Support Group segment, but I just wanted to say that I’m still writing “Sirius never died in OotP” AU fics, so there’s still a few of us hanging in there, although I admit I don’t see many of those these days. But then, I’ve been living in denial since Book 5 anyway; I didn’t even use the HBP storyline in my Snupin fics, since I had already written that Snape was a pureblood and invented a whole family and background for him. So I expect I will handle Book 7 in the same way if Snape dies: pretend it never happened. ^_^ Although I’ll still cry my eyes out if he dies in the book.
    No offense to Mr. Card, who had some very interesting insights into the story, but I’m still hoping that Snape will survive, and show that people can change and find redemption.

    Hey, I’m actually the girl who made that “Escape from Azkaban” video to the song by Ministry of Magic. I thought it was so awesome that Jason and Luke saw my video and thought it was really neat. Anyone who is interested in visiting my myspace site its:

    I just posted pictures from the HP5 premier we had. I couldn’t go to the real premier. I just tape Harry Potter posters to my garage door and me and my friends dress up fancy and take pictures. Its fun. Also thank you to the people who actually checked out my Azkaban video after they heard about it on Snapecast! (My real name is Rachel.)

    Thanks for another GREAT episode! I
    ve been listening to it on an off all day, so without noticing I got a whole lot of boring stuff done, while enjoying myself thouroughly! At one point I was even exercising my horse while listening.. poor horse must think I
    m crazy squeeing like mad during the “Snape vs Snape” song, and almost crying during the group therapy session.. Anywhoo, excellent episode, and I
    m really looking forward to hearing the next one after the “great release” since I don
    t really have anyone to share my Snape- thoughts and fears with. You guys make my day!!

    Hugs from Norway,


    The Great Release…
    Sounds like an awesome name for an episode.

    As the end of canon breathes down our necks (umm, block that metaphor?), I’m feeling the need to go around thanking everybody who’s made my experience of fandom so special. I was never much of a Snaper until Snapecast came along, but you guys have won me over with the snarkiest, best-produced podcast in fandom. Seriously, you guys are smart and thoughtful and have the best collection of podvoices out there. Listening to Snapecast is always an aesthetic pleasure as well as a hoot. Thanks particularly for the interview with OSC and for Rose’s wonderful TSL in this episode. I’m very glad I have the Snapecasters with whom to work through whatever’s coming on Saturday.

    Thanks for the episode. I am seriously considering asking compassionate leave if Snape bites it. Last minute plea for the Half Blood Prince. Two more days…

    “Oh, Deatheaters they rob I, took I to the Dark Lord
    Minutes after they took I, to the bottomless pit
    But my waaaaand was made strong, by the strength of the chosen one
    We fastforward this story
    won’t you help me sing
    those songs of snapedom
    Cause all it ever was
    Redemption song

    Emancipate yourselves from Rowling’s slavery
    None but ourselves say who’s god or bad
    Have nor fear for the dark energy
    Cause none of them can stop the time
    ( except for a half hour or so)
    How long shall she kill our prophet
    While we stand aside and look
    Some say it’s just a part of it
    She’s got to fulfil the book
    Won’t you help us sing
    These songs of Snapedom
    All it ever was
    Redemption song
    Redempition song

    I recently found this podcast and have been enjoying it a great deal. I’m very glad to have had it to listen to at work and it has definitely helped me prepare for the release of “Deathly Hallows”. While listening to this episode, I was struck with a sudden thought that I just had to share.

    “Snape vs Snape” by the Ministry of Magic was playing and I remembered the suggestion that all the Snape cosplayers at Prophecy (I believe) lip-synch to this song. For some reason, I was suddenly struck with a vision of a line of Snape cosplayers do the can-can to this song. It was both amusing and disturbing all at the same time.

    Now we know. No, there will be no spoiling. Just.. now we know.

    You fan girls are rockin’ geniuses! I laugh and cry through every episode! I just discovered you recently, as I prepped for DH and OOTP flick by re-reading books 5 & 6.

    I came into Fandom via V for Vendetta, (see Ladies of the Shadow Gallery) and am delighted to find this incredible burgeoning world of creativity and passion.

    I am itching for tomorrow’s show, in the new light of the awesome finale JKR has given us.

    Rock on, SnapeFans!
