(NOTE TO READERS: I'LL BE CRITICISING SEVRUS SNAPE IN THIS ARTICLE. BUT THIS IS A ONCE OFF. OTHERWISE I AM TEAM SNAPE 4EVA =])
We all know Bella over-reacted in New Moon. That's a common aregument. But now some Twilight 팬 say Lily over-reacted when Sevrus called her mud-blood compared to how Hermione took it from Draco. But personally I think Lily didn't over-react.
Sevrus and Lily's friendship was rocky for a while. She despised his 프렌즈 and his ideas for the future. He despised the fact James fancied Lily. They had areguments (Lily says "I've made excuses for 당신 long enough" in Deathly Hallows, so we know he had already done mean things). And when Sevrus was being bullied 의해 James and Sirius Lily tried to HELP him. Imagine, helping a friend who's being bullied only to be called one of the worst insults. And although she was shocked, Lily did keep calm
"Fine" she said cooly "And I'd wash my pants if I were you" (Quote taken from Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix)
So how is that over-reacting? True, she ended their friendship but hell, if I was Lily I would of ended the friendship ages ago. Afterall "You call everyone of my birth mudblood. Why should I be any different?" (Quote taken from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows).
Bella did over-react. I mean moping for four fricking months!!!! WTF, nobody should do that! If Bella loved Edward so much she would of got on with life and leave Jacob out of the picture. But don't get me started on that.
Anyway, Lily and Sevrus chose their way. They were too different to be friends. It was a good thing Lily ended it. Good for her anyway.
