–– “It’s called a milkshake,” she said, sliding the cup across the table and smiling encouragingly. –– “Muggle children are fond of it, and while I can’t say the idea much appeals to me, it seemed right up your alley. It’s mostly ice cream and milk, with whipped cream on top.”
That, and several shots of vodka, which she had slipped in earlier that evening when her flatmate was in the loo. The idea of a way to trick the young Crouch into accidental inebriation, once it had occurred to her, had been too much to resist.
She’d never claimed that she was a good person.
i will literally never understand the headcanon that snape was close with his mother
but that’s none of my business
Well Severus wasn’t the only one that was abused in the Snape household.
His mother, most likely, was a victim of domestic violence. Boys that witness their mothers being abused tend to go one of two ways. They either think this is the appropriate way to act around women and join in, abusing their mother and future lovers (if heterosexual). Or they realise that it’s wrong, feel scared and worried for their mother and try to comfort her, which can either mean they grow closer to her or that they feel bitter that she didn’t leave.
Personally I think he would’ve been bitter towards her, after all you can have abusive households where the child is still fed and clothed properly but she was at least neglectful, leaving him unfed, dirty, and underdressed, and she brought him into and kept him in an emotionally and physically abusive household.
I can see why people would have the headcanon that they were close though.
I mean, just with my own experience with abuse, in situations like this, while the child may be close to the mother while young, as years go on and the abuse continues, oftentimes the child grows to be very resentful of the mother for not saving them from the situation. Parents are, after all, supposed to protect their children, and to abused children, the failure to leave/stop the abuse is often seen as a failure of parental duties.
Also, just my own personal headcanon is that Eileen may have been abusive in her own way – either through neglect (there are strong hints in canon that Severus was severely neglected as a child) or through active abuse. Either of those would be more than enough to turn Severus against her.
