Sorry to interrupt like this, but I just found this thread and...well, I confess - I'm a Harry Potter addict, too.
At this point I am convinced that Snape was secretly in love with Lily and was horrorized at her death by Voldemort. Add the fact that Voldemort didn't want to kill her, and that everybody tells Harry that he has his mother's eyes.
Honeslty, do you really think Voldemort gives a damn about what his followers feel for other people? The only one he truly cares about is himself and really...it's a bit silly thinking that Snape, if this ever was the case, confessed his 'undying' love for Miss Evans to none other than Voldemort.

I really think people are being too hard on Percy. I mean, considering the way he was treated, I'm surprised he didn't speak up his mind earlier.

But what if Dumbledore actually asked Snape to kill him? What if that 'please, Severus' was actually Dumbledore urging him to get on with his task?
Doesn't it seem even a tad odd that a man for whom 'death is nothing but the next great adventure' suddenly gets cold feet and starts begging for his life? I think better of Dumbledore to accept that. I think Dumbledore was begging Snape to kill him and spare Draco of doing it. Snape has been a Death Eater, he certainly killed someone before, whereas Draco hasn't.
And in all honesty, who would've Dumbledore trust more in order to kill him?
And if this doesn't convice you, think of Fawkes. He clearly is present in the sixth book and I can't help but find his behaviour peculiar. One year before, he had absolutely no
problem apparating himself from Scotland to London and eat an Avada Kedavra for Dumbledore's sake and now
he can't seem to move his feathered behind to one of the towers of Hogwarts
to come in Dumbledore's aid? Hmm.
And about the actual curse hitting Dumbledore. I must add that in this instance, the Killing Curse does
manifest itself strangely. When you are hit, you simply die, not get thrown off a tower. And it did hit him squarely in the chest.
, inanimate objects take damage from spells. What if
Dumbledore was already an "inanimate object" before the spell hit him? What if he actually died of the potion ?
