Snape. He does not really look like he looks.

The Snape in my head, that is. It's the Snape of the books that I'm mad about, not the Snape of the movies. Alan Rickman is a fine man, I'm sure, and lustworthy in his own way. And in the movies, all I get are snapshots of Snape. The personality comes across so much better in the books.

But I will say one thing for Alan Rickman: That VOICE...I don't know if Mr. Rickman always sounds like that, or if his "Snape voice" is only for the Harry Potter movies. But that voice IS Snape. It's a rich chocolate mousse voice.

And if you don't know what I mean by that, visit Cafe Y on Langford Road in Bangalore, and order the chocolate mousse. It's orgasmically delicious.
