  1. On Snape’s rerendering of the prophecy, when I had initially read the sentence I interpreted the literal meaning of the words in the same way that Rianne did, given the context of Snape being the potions professor. “Spellets” could be understood to mean magical ingredients, and I had thought “vuld” to be another word for a kind of container as well (though no such word with that meaning actually exists). As he said, the point was not to listen to the exact words that were used, so I don’t think it was an imitation of an accent.

  2. The reason Snape has ro play the “abusive dickhead” role is that he has to seem like a Death Eater (speak blood purist, nobility supporting, anti Gryffindor and anti Hufflepuff tough guy) that still has enough power over Dumbledore to keep his position despite being his clear and blatant enemy. In other words, the Death Eaters have to trust him to be on their side despite him being in Dumbledore’s employ for over a decade. To make that look remotely credible he has to be seen as doing Slytherin supremacist things that Dumbledore would hate and never allow under normal circumstances.
    Couple that with hundred years old opinions on things like tough love and “boys will be boys” and you can see why this is what Dumbledore and Snape decided on
