10-minute post: Bye bye, Snape TT_TT

Alan Rickman, Harry Potter and Die Hard actor, dies aged 69 – BBC News


First Ziggy Stardust, now Snape. Both at 69. Damn you, cancer!

I have never been able to plan my life. I just lurch from indecision to indecision.
Alan Rickman

Seemed like a good way to live.

He made me so sad in Love Actually when he cheated on Emma Thompson, but even so, his failing was so unerringly human, and you knew he regretted his indiscretion when he realised how much he’d broken her trust.

RIP, Snape. Thank you for everything.
