People don't realize that what the Author meant doesn't mean anything at all. The Author doesn't matter. It's how you interpret it that matters.

you know, it's not always that simple

good writers usually have the whole story mapped out, the gist of it anyway

That is how writers work. Good ones anyway. They plan every detail and (if they're geniuses) work to include clever references that can either give clues to future plots or to something they want to include in the book that isn't relevent to the plot. You think a masterpeice is just putting pen to paper and letting whatever comes to mind flow?

I dunno. This sounds crazy, but then I feel like victorian flower imagery is the sort of thing Rowling would know about. I just figured wormwood made for good imagery when it came to Snape being a bitter man in general.
