    Yea! Another episode! Also, it was great to meet Rose at Accio!

    Subject: total SQUEEEE!

    Snapefest was such a wonderful experience for me, thank you all.

    Getting to meet the faces behind the genius of Snapecast was wonderful. Being in a room full of Snape fen was unbelievably satisying, even healing!

    Finding out I suck at trivia: well, I’ve got work to do!

    Can’t wait til next time!

    You are too kind, but you can’t have the jacket to perve over.

    Thanks for highlighting Sabrebabe who is both the doll maker and Eileen Snape. She’s a very talented woman.

    Oh, how I wish I had been able to attend – but if you guys are still going strong or want a meet-up at Infinitus, I’m there!

    My favorite on this episode was hearing everyone’s voices again and the replacement-snape section.

    I’m such an oldster though, Snape was my replacement for Spock! Although for sheer snarkiness these days, I turn to Shark. (hmm S-names: I sense a pattern forming…) It took me awhile to understand the Battlestar references – I’m a fan of the original series, and have yet to warm up to the new incarnation mainly for the use of earth-centric words. I saw the first episode and it turned me right off.

    In any case, loved the episode – jealous I wasn’t there to enjoy all the snape-fest goodness, and hope you will be doing it again in the future. And a new episode coming soon!!! Can’t wait!

    Love you all,

    Visual Replacements:

    1.Dr.Nigel Townsend from Crossing Jordan. I know, the show’s boring, but he has the hair, the nose, the eyes, the gothic touch and the ambiguous sexual orientation. Not to mention he’s a potioneer. sort of.

    2.Marilyn Manson. Again that snapy look. And really evil.

    Loved the full version of the Tribute! The artwork is so wonderful, much better than GrandPre actually. The picture of Snape finding Lily’s letter was really touching.
    For a Snarky substitute, try Christina Hendricks who plays Joan the Office Bitch Queen on Mad Men. She is wonderful, and just slices people into little pieces with wit and cool.

    Thanks for the episode. Looking forward to more Snapey Goodness.

    Okay, amazing episode but… I was not aware that you were going to read the questions in front of a live audience. I was mortified for like three seconds then I just started laughing. And Bless LeatherJacket!Snape for sticking around as long as he did. Snape probably has a hit on me now for even hinting at another Snape in drag visual. Oh well. He loves us. He just won’t admit it. :D

    Although I consider myself quite new amongst this particular group of Snapefen I am definitely not a very new obsessor (for lack of a better word). I really enjoyed listening to you guys live and only wish the age restriction for Snapefest had been a teensy bit lower so that I could’ve attended. :( I suppose there’s always Infinitus to look forward to.

    Still so sad to have missed it, but great to see another episode up. Whee!

    I so wish I could have been there. A convention about Snape only is just too irresistible a thought. But, unfortunately, I don’t live anywhere near close enough. As far as I know, there isn’t even a Harry Potter convention near me, let alone a Snape one. I live in Australia, you see. But the whole time leading up to it, I so wanted to.

    Plus, the age restriction might have excluded me. I wasn’t really clear on it. I’m 18.
