Due to a problem with blibbering-humdingers in the server (that may or may not have had anything to do with one snarky professor), snapecast.com was down for a while. We've called in an expert to take care of the infestation and are back. Stay tuned for further Snape-ing!

Although many Snape fen are currently enjoying themselvess at Aeternitas, Becca and Rachael recently spotted some Snape at a non-HP convention, Sakura Con. There was not much, but we did see...

A Snapey keychain from Gum Gum...



Some Snily fanart from Nuriko Kun...



And we think this might be a silver doe/stag thing...



Hey, we see a bit of Snape in everything. ;)

A recent video from ABC Family featured previews of Deathly Hallows Part 2, which included some haunting pictures of Snape. We took some screencaps. Be sure to click on the images for the larger size and Snape in all his glory.



Cut for 2 more )

So what does everyone think? Is this Snape outside the Potter's house? Are we going to get flashbacks?

The Snapeologists at Snapecast know we have been dreadfully slow about an episode in reaction to Deathly Hallows Part I, but don't lose hope yet. All good Snape fans know what special day tomorrow is and we promise we won't let you down. Be on the lookout for something epic and record breaking.

While you are waiting for the Snapecasters to get their act together and put out an episode about Deathly Hallows, you can squee with other Snape fen in the Deathly Hallows Snape chat room.

The Professor looks a bit sad as the featured May model for a recent Harry Potter calendar...



Three questions for everyone...

1. Why isn't he Mr. January?
2. Am I the only one who thought the picture in the corner looked like a Barbie doll box?
3. Why isn't there an entire Snape calendar?

A number of Snape fen have asked us about posting content for the Theory of Dimishing Snape talk we gave at Infinitus last month. If you are interested in having a look at our highly detailed (and somewhat scientific) analysis, we have a link to the presentation materials here. Please let us know what you think!

Someone is starting to realize that there can never be enough Snape merchandise. WB is selling Property of HBP t-shirts.

Dear Fellow Snape-fen,

You are cordially invited to the Sitting Room at Spinner's End to pass the time sneering, Snape-ing, and hexing Gryffindors socializing over libations, snacks, and greying underpants on Friday evening before the Night of a Thousand Wizards. It is our dearest hope that a few hours relaxing and Snape-ing will provide a much needed break between the stimulating formal programming of Friday afternoon and the excitement and mayhem of the Night of a Thousand Wizards.

Where: The Sitting Room at Spinner's End (hospitality suite in the conference hotel TBA - currently unplottable)

When: 6:00-9:00pm, Friday, July 16th

What: Snape-ing, of course

We kindly ask that you R.S.V.P. via the poll located here.

Although any good Snape fan is well aware of the fact that the professor does not actually die in the last book, Warner Brothers has announced that the Snape death scene has been filmed. At least we know he'll be in the last film! Now let's hope that the scene is longer than 2 minutes...

In Episode 35, some of the Snapecasters performed a dramatic reading of the "Don't Call Me a Coward" scene from the script for Harry Potter and the Halfblood Prince. Please consider this the closest thing we will get to a corrected version of the film.



You can watch it here on the Snapecast YouTube channel.

Clips from a December 7, 2009 interview with Alan Rickman at the Hudson Society have recently surfaced. A link with the all three the videos is here. Here is a short summary of the content from a Snape fan perspective...

Video 1 (located here): Rickman talks about the importance of story telling and discusses what happens when it is mixed with commercialism.

Video 2 (located here): Rickman responds "I don't know" to a question about what attracted him to his character in Harry Potter. His teaser for the upcoming Harry Potter film: "It's the last one." Not exactly true since Deathly Hollows will be a two parter. There is a bit of discussion about the different directors in the series as well.

Video 3 (located here): Rickman mentions a few scenes with just Ralph Fiennes. Will we see Snape and Voldemort strolling around the Malfoy Mansion together with the white peacocks? There is also mention of a scene with 300 kids. Headmaster Snape?

This interview definitely offers fodder about how much Snape there will be in Deathly Hollows. Will we even get a death scene?
