14th of January 2016… – Just 4 days after the great musician David Bowie passed away.

*Okay, thank you, and good luck with the rest of your exams!* I just got told that I’ve passed my Internship. Happy day! My mentor and I walk down the hall… And then the unthinkable happened. 
*PIEP* – A text message from one of my best friends.
*2 seconds later* *PIEP* – Another text message from another friend.
And then the madness started. My phone kept buzzing for at least 10 minutes with new messages from youtubers and friends. Messages with the worst news a Potterhead could ever get. 
Alan Rickman died due to cancer,  age 69. – My world collapsed, and so did the world of many others.

Our beloved Professor Snape is no more.

On facebook the group “Belgian Potterheads” was filling up with comments on the sad lost and a lot of pictures and favorite moments were commented. And then the tears, oh god, the tears. 
Never have I ever … Cried like a baby when an actor died. #DRINK

Some people, like Matthias, made some great fan art about his passing, which is beside sad, very creative… and actually really awesome. 
We will never forget the first time Harry saw Snape in the great hall and after that when we all got to know his name, thank you Percy. And remember that first Potions class with Snape?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=brDO1mx4SUo ❤ That was actually one of my favorite scenes.

God, the memories. So after I heard the news, and read all the reactions on facebook, I abandoned my plans of doing the perfect boyfriend tag with the Belgian Potterheads. Instead I asked them to write their thoughts and feelings down. But somehow that post got a lot of likes but no reactions….
But then lightning struck. 2 days after Alan passed away, A very big Belgian Newspaper had the guts to call his death badly planned and other stuff like that… Find the post I did about it HERE .
And then something happend that I don’t think someone (who doesn’t know us) saw coming. The Belgian Potterheads united and send the editorial office emails to complain EN MASSE. And that was just the best thing ever.

Because of that, and in honour of Alan, I asked the Belgian Potterheads to help me with something. I’ve chosen 5 categories…. 
So, without further ado, welcome to the…

For this last part, written at 2 am at night, I’m just posting pictures and stuff…
Even untill this day, I see new fan art and drawings/cartoons about him pass by…

image

Some are remembering Alan Rickman.
Others are remembering the great Severus Snape

image

Even the jokes, songs and his appearances in tv shows are getting viewed again. Over and over.
Remember that silly little song from “Potter Puppet Pals” called “The Mysterious Ticking Noice”? -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tx1XIm6q4r4 Someone made a cartoon about it. And it just hit me. I couldn’t get it out of my head anymore.

So I started drawing and painting myself and came up with this : 

image

It’s not my best work. But I like it. But yet again, not my best work. 
Finally, I gathered some links to his tv shows interviews and scenes from harry potter, tribute videos and Ryan Higa doing his voice. SPOT ON. 
But before you go and watch all of these, remember, 

image

and still…

image

But I do believe that, one day, I will look back at this moment and cry a bit. And when my friends ask me why I’m crying and ask if it’s still about the 14th of January 2016, I will answer them : 

image

So, thank you guys for reading this far. Thank you, Belgian Potterheads for helping me out. Thank you Everyone for you fan art and pictures and stuff like that. And thanks to one of my friends for helping to choose the winners in the Rickman Awards
