Snape not only deflects McGonagall’s attack but uses it to take down Alecto and Amycus in a single armwave behind his visual field. Like they both had their wands out too but BOY they did not see that coming. Snape knew that he needed to get rid of them before being driven out of the castle so that they wouldn’t harm any of the students GOD what a badass motherfucker
DAMN SNAPE DAMN
I got in a fight with a kid in the cafeteria of my elementary school once because I said Snape was a good guy. He’s always been one of my favorite characters (with Hermione and McGonagall). The books brought tears and vindication.
