About the Site

Risk was created around June 2014. The plan for the shrine started after I finally watched Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 around Easter time and was out of my mourning for Snape (actually, scratch that. I'm still in mourning for him). I was pretty much avoiding watching the last film since I read Deathly Hallows before then. Since I knew the series was completely over once the films were done (the novels were already done by the time Half-Blood Prince came out in theatres). I knew I had to make a dedication to him, again. I originally had a domain that my friend, Tess, bought for me called spinnersend.org. However, since I had no idea what to do with it, I told Tess to let it expire. So, now I decided to make a proper dedication to the professor. Even if it's on a subdomain (plus it goes well with it, don't you think? If you know what I mean). However, affter some health issues and other offline things, the opening of the site was delayed and was finally opened on January 9th 2015 to celebrate the professor's birthday. Severus, I love you dearly and this is for you. Miss you. xoxo

Version One of Risk features a promotional image of Alan Rickman as Severus in Half-Blood Prince. Layout was made in Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended and coded via Adobe Dreamweaver CS6 using my Apple Macbook Pro with a 1440x900 resolution. Layout is best viewed on Safari, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. Should also look good on your mobile devices. I highly recommend that you don't look at the site in Internet Explorer because one, I stopped using it, two, I hate the browser and three, I seriously recommend that you don't. Much love goes to Donna and Cherri for their lovely help. Major love, thanks and hugs goes out to Samantha for helping me stay motivated the whole way. Couldn't have done it without you, ladies. Also an infinity love and thank yous goes to the Queen herself of the Wizarding World, Jo Rowling. Jo, if you're reading this, thank you so much in writing the series and creating such a wonderful character no matter his acts. xoxo

Why "Risk"?

Risk: exposure to the chance of injury or loss, a hazard or dangerous chance, put oneself in danger, in a dangerous situation or status, to venture upon, take or run the chance of. Dictionary.com

I've chosen the word Risk because I feel it really assoiciates with Snape very strongly ever since the beginning of his life. He came out of his hiding place and went to talk to Lily despite how hard it would be for him. After making his mistake, he personally went to Dumbledore to ask to protect Lily and tell him what Voldemort is planning to do. The biggest risk of all, is when he is spying on the Death Eaters, acting as a double agent while protecting Harry at the same time. The name suddenly came to me after looking at a quote in Deathly Hallows he says while talking with Dumbledore in chapter 33 (which can be seen on the site's title header and on the layout with very small font). Even Dumbledore has also said a quote in Goblet of Fire (which I suddenly realized) which also adds a bonus.

Severus Snape was indeed a Death Eater. However, he rejoined our side before Lord Voldemort's downfall and turned spy for us at great personal risk. He is now no more a Death Eater than I am." Albus Dumbledore
Chapter 30: The Pensive (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire)
