Could you ever double as a spy like Snape?
Full disclosure? I'm one of those people that have never been able to fully forgive, or swoon over Snape and the sacrifices he made as a spy. He played his role too well I guess and 'after all this time' he basically admitted to never, ever growing to care for Harry at all. Yeah. Seeing as Harry himself is my ultimate favorite hero and character of all time, that's something I just cannot accept on a basic level.
However. That being said... I do fully recognize and admire the risks he took, day in, day out to accomplish what needed to be done. It takes a very special kind of bravery and his dedication to the thing HAD to be a b s o l u t e . One tiny mistake could have cost him more than we probably could ever imagine. (But seriously though - imagine for a second how Voldemort would have reacted had he found out about this deception while Snape was alive. I got chills just thinking about it o.O *shudder* )
So no, to answer the question, I seriously don't think I could ever accomplish what Snape did. Not for a second.
