Big question mark floating in my head at this moment. Fan fiction is one thing but I've becoming across more and more speculations after HBP that Snape was in love with Lily Evans. I've never got any indication from any of JKR's books that this shipping ever existed. The only time she writes an interaction between this pseudo-couple, Lily's 2secs close to giggling at the sight of Snape's underwear, and Snape's calling her a Mudblood for rescuing him.
So what gives with the canon!Snape/Lily speculations?
On a related note, are Lily's green eyes still significant in this series?
