    Yay for new Snapecast!
    It’s weird this is a little German themed, because I’m moving there soon.

    Two hours Snapecast!!! This makes my entire month, I love you guys! : )

    I was quite surprised about the german theme, I am german and my best friend temporarily lives in Munich. *giggle* I`m trying to visualize Snape at the Oktoberfest. *rroarrr* In leather trousers and knee-length socks …

    Props on studying abroad in St. Petersburg! I’m hoping to major in Russian in college and have some friends in St. Petersburg.

    Good luck!

    By the way, you guys are basically my secret addiction.

    Wow and it’s a long Episode, I must say! I love it! The Snape/Lily discussion is quite good.

    And I love how you guys are picturing Snape going out. Me personally, I think that Snape would be into expensive and high class nightclubs and ino Dry Martini – shaken not stirred :)

    The name is Snape. Severus Snape.

    Another great Snapecast. I wanted to mention that a great Snily story is Unseen by Subversa. It was posted just before Deathly Hallows and very close to the mark. I’m up for a Snape Con. Please plan to hold it in the US. Your Octoberfest song was classic and now it is stuck in my head! Who wrote that? Happy Snapping to all.

    I loved this episode. It’s kind of funny because I listened to it all the way through after I got back from a Wedding reception. So this was the first Snapecast episode that I listened to a little drunk.

    an extra long episode! i loved it, especially the song at the end.

    I was thinking in regards to Snily, that if Lily had never chosen James, she’d have never had Harry and therefore would never have died. Imagine: if someone used your fic idea and had no one live up to Snape from an early point and then she just stuck with Snape, they could’ve had a happy ending.

    I loved your discussion about what Dumbledore said to Severus about being mis-sorted. I definitely had the same sort of response when I read that scene, and am so glad that other people also read it that way, and also see Dumbledore as being really manipulative and rather (perhaps unintentionally) prejudiced against the slytherins.
