Upcoming Previous Submit Event. What are your thoughts on this story? He somehow was able to turn his Shrinking Solution orange instead of green. To ensure Neville would get the potion right, Snape told him that he would feed some of it to Neville's toad, Trevor , at the end of the class. Desperately, he asked Hermione for help; she whispered instructions to him out of the corner of her mouth.
By the end of class, he was able to turn his potion green, and successfully shrunk Trevor from a toad to a tadpole. Upon returning Trevor to his proper size, Snape took five points from Hermione simply to spite the Gryffindors. Neville's Boggart , Professor Snape. Neville was the first person to be asked. This was most likely because of Professor Lupin's preference for the underdog and him wanting to build Neville's confidence.
When asked what scared him most in the world, Neville replied " Professor Snape ", to which everyone found amusing. To counter the boggart, Lupin asked Neville to picture Snape in his grandmother's clothes. For his help, Neville earned ten points for Gryffindor.
Neville confidently destroyed the boggart at the end of class. In the spring of , Neville lost the passwords to Gryffindor Tower; because Sir Cadogan changed them so frequently, Neville needed to write them down so he could remember them.
After learning Neville was indirectly responsible, Professor McGonagall banned him from all future visits into Hogsmeade for the remainder of the school year, gave him a detention, and forbade anyone from giving him the password to the common room, thus he had to wait outside the portrait until someone came by.
Two days later, Neville received a Howler from his grandmother; he tore out of the Great Hall , amid shouts of laughter, and opened it in the Entrance Hall , where his grandmother's angry voice told him he brought shame to their family. At the end of his Divination final exam, Neville was told that, if he told anyone his results, he would suffer a serious accident. He jealously listened to their recap of the Quidditch World Cup ; his grandmother had not wanted to go, and did not purchase tickets.
When Moody demonstrated the curse on a spider, Neville was terrified; he gripped his desk so hard, his knuckles turned white.
Hermione noticed this and called for the professor to stop. After class, Moody — who was in fact Barty Crouch Jr , one of the attackers of Neville's parents, under disguise by use of Polyjuice Potion — took Neville to his office for a cup of tea. Having heard from Professor Sprout about Neville's aptitude in Herbology , " Moody " cheered Neville up by telling him what Sprout had said and gave him a number of books he thought Neville would enjoy.
One of them was Magical Water Plants of the Mediterranean , which Crouch intended for Harry to read in order to learn all about Gillyweed for the second task  , but he was stubbornly searching through the library. A few days later in class, Neville was put under the Imperius Curse by Moody, under the pretence of letting the class know what it felt like.
Under Moody's influence, Neville performed a series of " quite astonishing gymnastics " that he could not have performed normally. Neville and Ginny Weasley at the Yule Ball. While the pair seemed to enjoy themselves, Neville accidentally stepped on Ginny's toes while dancing. It can be assumed that Neville was among the spectators of the Third Task, supporting Harry along with his fellow Gryffindors.
He was also most likely among the mass of students that attended the Memorial feast to Cedric Diggory , after Cedric was murdered on the orders of Lord Voldemort.
Searching for seats, the trio entered Luna Lovegood 's compartment. Once inside, he excitedly showed them his Mimbulus Mimbletonia , a birthday present from his great-uncle Algie.
He told them about his plans to show it to Professor Sprout, as well as wanting to breed it. After arriving at Hogwarts, Neville helped Harry get into Gryffindor Tower as Harry had not learned the new password yet, and then defended Harry during a verbal fight with Seamus Finnigan , claiming that the Daily Prophet was going downhill, not Harry and Dumbledore. He and his grandmother both believed Harry's claim that Voldemort had returned, and had cancelled their subscription to the newspaper.
At their first meeting in the Room of Requirement , Neville was left partner-less when they began practise; Neville instead partnered with Harry. After successfully disarming Harry, Neville then joined Ron and Hermione, so Harry could check on the others. Harry was the only one who already knew this, having found out in the Pensieve in , but he had told no one, keeping Neville's secret safe.
Before Neville left, his mother handed him an empty Droobles Blowing Gum wrapper; while his grandmother wanted him to throw it away, Neville instead pocketed it. When it was learned that ten Death Eaters escaped from Azkaban in , including three of the ones responsible for the torture of Neville's parents, Neville did not speak of it, but it " wrought a strange and even slightly alarming change " in him, according to Harry.
He worked harder than anyone in D. He, Ginny and Luna joined the trio in flying Thestrals to London, despite Harry's reluctance to let them accompany him. Once in the Hall of Prophecies , Harry was drawn to an orb that had his name on it. Neville and Hermione urged him not to remove it; once Harry had, the group was confronted by Death Eaters.
He disarmed a Death Eater who was struggling with Harry, accidentally disarming Harry as well. Later, Antonin Dolohov broke Neville's nose and wand, but Neville refused Harry's suggestion that he leave with an incapacitated Hermione to go get help, instead carrying her while he and Harry searched for Ron, Ginny, and Luna.
Harry urged him to run, but Neville refused, instead breaking Walden Macnair 's grip on Harry by jabbing Macnair in the eye with Hermione's wand. When another Death Eater seized Neville, Bellatrix Lestrange briefly tortured Neville with the Cruciatus Curse , both to try to make Harry hand over the prophecy and to see how long Neville held out before "cracking" like his parents.
After the Order of the Phoenix arrived, Harry tried to get out with Neville, who was struck with Tarantallegra by Dolohov. As the battle continued, Neville alerted Harry to the appearance of Albus Dumbledore. The battle soon ended, and Neville and his friends were transported back to Hogwarts, where Neville's nose was fixed by Madam Pomfrey.
Harry soon learned the contents of the prophecy from Dumbledore. As both Neville and Harry were born at the close of July to parents who had all escaped Voldemort three times, they both qualified for the prophecy child. However, Dumbledore believed that the prophecy did indeed refer to Harry, not Neville, as Voldemort marked Harry as his equal by attacking him.
Neville's grandmother purchased him a new wand, 13" cherry wood, with a unicorn hair core, from Garrick Ollivander before his sixth year. Neville acting as a server during the Slug Club Christmas party.
When Romilda Vane , a younger Gryffindor student, invited Harry to come to her compartment and implicitly insulted Neville and Luna, Harry coldly rebuffed her, emphasising that Neville and Luna were among his closest and most loyal friends. Neville was later invited to join Horace Slughorn , the new Potions professor, in his train compartment.
Neville also achieved four known O. The 'Acceptable' he achieved in Transfiguration was not good enough for N. He only applied for Transfiguration per his grandmother's desires, but McGonagall states it is time for Augusta to be proud of the grandson she has, as opposed to the one she desires.
She let him down gently on his application on Transfiguration, and instead encouraged him to take Charms. Towards the end of the school year, Neville participated in the Battle of the Astronomy Tower.
Along with Luna Lovegood, he was the only member of Dumbledore's Army to reply to the summons via the coins. Neville suffered an injury that kept him in the hospital wing for some time, though he was able to attend the funeral of Albus Dumbledore shortly afterwards, where Luna helped him into his seat. Neville got in trouble with the Carrows for refusing to practise the Cruciatus Curse on other students as a method of punishment, as well as for standing up against their bigotry and cruelty.
Neville was eventually left alone to lead the rebellion efforts, as Luna was dragged off the Hogwarts Express by Death Eaters around Christmas of to coerce her father into ceasing his political dissidence in The Quibbler , and Ginny did not return to Hogwarts following the Easter holidays, as her family went into hiding following Harry, Ron, and Hermione's escape from Malfoy Manor.
By this time, the Carrows were aware of Neville's role in the rebellion, and he suffered beatings and torture. The Ministry also targeted Neville's grandmother to try to intimidate him, but she evaded capture and went on the run.
Eventually, the Carrows realised that Neville was the main ringleader and decided that Hogwarts could do without him. Fearing that they may kill him, Neville made for the Room of Requirement , which he was able to turn into a hiding place for the D. By May, most of the D. The trio and Neville in the Hog's Head Inn. While in the tunnel he explained to the trio the nature of his injuries and the reign of the Carrows at Hogwarts. He also informed the trio that the D.
Believing that their return meant the overthrow of the Death Eater professors, Neville signalled the rest of the D. During the first round of battle, Neville used various plants to attack Death Eaters, and helped transport the injured and dead when a temporary cease-fire was called. He briefly spoke to Harry, who told him that it was top priority to kill Voldemort 's snake, Nagini.
He was subsequently forced to wear the Sorting Hat as it burned because he refused to join Voldemort. Neville slaying Nagini with the Sword of Gryffindor. Because of his tremendous bravery shown on the battlefield, Neville was able to pull Godric Gryffindor's sword from the burning hat, in the process proving himself a true Gryffindor , something that was doubted constantly throughout due to his apparently weak-willed, shy, and bumbling nature.
In a single stroke, he carried out Harry's final order, slaying Nagini, destroying Voldemort's last remaining Horcrux. Scabior fell to his death when the bridge fell down. Neville briefly worked as an Auror , immediately following the war.
Sometime before , he married his former classmate and D. The pair lived at the Leaky Cauldron , where she became the landlady. Neville in his sixth year , age Neville was said to strongly resemble his mother. He was round-faced,  short, chubby, and had blond hair. Pansy Parkinson had once called him " fat ", but this may have been an exaggeration, as she frequently made disparaging comments about Gryffindor students. When he was younger, Neville was clumsy, forgetful, shy, and many considered him ill-suited for Gryffindor house because he seemed timid.
However, Neville proved that the Sorting Hat had seen the bravery beneath his insecurity, as he stood up to his only friends as a first-year  and later became one of the D. Though he came from a pure-blood family, he held no prejudice against half-bloods or Muggle-borns. Neville appeared to suffer from a degree of post-traumatic stress disorder, as the torture of a spider via the cruciatus curse by Barty Crouch Junior in disguise as Alastor Moody was enough to cause him a severe anxiety attack.
This was likely due to his own experience with his parents being subjected to the curse's worst possible outcome: This familiarity of what the Cruciatus Curse could do in skilled enough hands was more than enough to terrify him.
Throughout the trials he face over his seven years at Hogwarts , Neville blossomed from a timid, self-deprecating, and generally nervous student into a stalwart soldier possessed of an ironclad will, courage of outstanding merit, and a nobility of spirit. In many ways, Neville's transformation allowed him to change from a scaredy-cat into a lordly lion, becoming a ferocious defender of his fellow students during Voldemort's reign.
Suffice it to say, Neville's appointment to Gryffindor House was well-deserved. Neville was not an academically strong student in his early years, often requiring Hermione 's help in class and with school-work. However as confirmed by McGonagall  , part of this was likely caused by his use of another's wand, poor self-esteem, and anxiety caused by the incessant bullying from many of his peers and Snape.
When he found both courage and self-confidence in his later years, Neville's magical skills as a wizard grew and he proved to be a powerful wizard in his own right. Alice Longbottom , his mother.
Frank Longbottom , his father. Neville regularly visited his parents at St Mungo's with his grandmother, where he tried to speak to them and brought them sweets, keeping the wrappers his mother handed back to him, even when his grandmother told him to throw them in the bin. When the Lestranges escaped from Azkaban in , Neville did not discuss it, but he became very dedicated to his training in Dumbledore's Army.
During the Battle of the Department of Mysteries , he was taunted about his parents by Bellatrix Lestrange , who also briefly subjected him to the Cruciatus Curse, but Neville remained defiant.
Augusta Longbottom , his paternal grandmother. Neville was raised by his grandmother, Augusta Longbottom, after his parents were tortured to the point of insanity when he was an infant.
This was pivotal in the development of his personality, as his grandmother often expressed her disappointment with her grandson's seeming lack of magical ability, and what she considered his inability to live up to his parents' skills.
When Neville was a child, his grandmother, as well as some of his other relatives , feared that he might have been a Squib. She came to Hogwarts during the final battle and ran off to assist him in fighting Death Eaters. Neville appeared to be fairly close to his great-uncle Algie , who tried to "scare" magic into him when he was younger; he once accidentally dropped Neville out of a window while reaching for a meringue, and when Neville bounced, his family was pleased to discover that he was not, in fact, a Squib.
Algie later rewarded him with his pet toad Trevor for getting into Hogwarts. Algie and Neville appear to have shared an interest in Herbology , as Algie gave Neville his very rare Mimbulus Mimbletonia plant, which at one point was the password to the Gryffindor Common Room. However, as Algie was willing to risk Neville's life to reveal his magic, such as pushing him into a lake and dangling him from a window, Algie more then likely cares for Neville's magic more then the boy himself.
Hannah Abbott , his future wife. It stands to reason that, since Herbology was where Neville excelled, he may have been confident and even charming amongst the plant life, thus attracting Hannah's attentions.
Hannah is eventually retrained as a Healer and applies to become the new matron of Hogwarts, a job held by Poppy Pomfrey during their years as students. It is possible that she applied in order to be closer to Neville. However, in the year , Madame Pomfrey is seen to still be the matron, as she resets Albus Potter 's broken arm. Trevor , his pet toad. Trevor was Neville's pet toad. In Neville's third year, Professor Snape made him test his Shrinking Solution on the toad; though Neville's dubious potion-making skills could have resulted in the toad's death, Trevor was successfully transformed into a tadpole, much to the Gryffindors ' delight.
At some point, Trevor escaped into the Hogwarts Lake. Both pet and owner felt a sense of relief. Harry Potter , his good friend and room-mate. They became classmates and room-mates after they were both sorted into the Gryffindor house, and came to be good friends over the years.
Harry felt that Neville was far more deserving of pity than he, though he promised Dumbledore not to tell anyone what he knew, as it was Neville's decision whether or not to reveal his past to his friends. In their fifth year, Neville became a member of Dumbledore's Army , an organisation led by Harry to oppose Dolores Umbridge and learn practical defensive magic.
After the Lestranges escaped from Azkaban that same year, Neville resolved to become stronger and try to honour his parents' reputations as excellent Aurors. When Harry was crying over the death of Sirius Black , Neville did not question nor protest Harry's friendship with an alleged criminal and mass murder, instead consoling him for his godfather's demise. In , Harry refused to allow Romilda Vane to insult Neville and Luna Lovegood , stating that they were his real friends, and the only ones who had fought alongside Ron, Ginny, Hermione, and himself at the Department of Mysteries.
At the end of the year, Neville and Harry both fought in the Battle of the Astronomy Tower and attended Dumbledore's funeral. Neville would later state that the hope Harry inspired in standing up to his enemies drove Neville to do the same.
Neville and Harry fought together in the Battle of Hogwarts , where Harry realised that Neville was one of his closest friends and one of the few people he would like to see once again before he dies in the forest and Neville showed his bravery and loyalty to Harry when he openly defied Voldemort and beheaded Nagini , destroying Voldemort's last remaining Horcrux.
Harry's children were later taught by Neville, who had been appointed Herbology professor at Hogwarts. Hermione Granger , his friend. During their years at Hogwarts , they became closer as Hermione encouraged him to stand up for himself when Draco Malfoy and his friends played pranks on him, or made jokes at his expense.
Because of his lack of confidence in classes, Neville frequently made mistakes, and Hermione usually came to his assistance, often whispering instructions in his ear. She also took note of how shaken Neville was by their fourth year lesson on the Unforgivable Curses , shouting for Professor Moody to stop demonstrating the Cruciatus Curse and later asking Neville if it was all right. Because Hermione had " always been so nice ", Neville plucked up the courage to ask her to the Yule Ball in , though she had already accepted the offer of Viktor Krum.
Neville and Hermione became members of Dumbledore's Army in , during their fifth year at Hogwarts, and fought together at the Battle of the Department of Mysteries , as well as in the Battle of the Astronomy Tower in When the trio returned to Hogwarts in just before the Battle of Hogwarts , it was Neville who greeted them enthusiastically, and who first expressed a willingness to help them in any way possible and to fight the incoming Death Eater army. After the Second Wizarding War , the two best friends remained in contact throughout the years.
Ron Weasley , his friend and room-mate. Neville met Ron Weasley on the Hogwarts Express at the start of their first year.
As both were sorted into Gryffindor house, they became room-mates. Over time, Neville became good friends with Ron, who, like Hermione and Harry, encouraged Neville not to let the Slytherins get to him. Ron, Hermione, and Ginny all learned about Neville's parents during their fifth year at Hogwarts, and were shocked to learn that the good-natured, clumsy boy was carrying such a dark secret.
Ron and Neville both became members of Dumbledore's Army in , in order to oppose Professor Umbridge and learn to fight the Death Eaters. Neville greeted Ron, Harry, and Hermione enthusiastically when they returned to Hogwarts in , and they all fought against Voldemort's forces in the Battle of Hogwarts.
During the battle, Neville and Ron defeated Fenrir Greyback together protecting each other, after the battle they remained as best friends and they regularly see each other.
Ginny Weasley , a good friend and his Yule Ball date. After asking Hermione to the Yule Ball in his fourth year and being turned down because she had already agreed to attend with Viktor Krum , Neville asked Ginny Weasley.
She agreed to go with him as a friend, being too young to attend otherwise. The two continued to be friendly afterwards, and Ginny, like Harry, Hermione and Ron, encouraged Neville to be more confident. After the war, Ginny and Neville remained in contact, and they remained closest friends, with Ginny naming Neville godfather to her son Albus Severus and being on friendly terms with her other son, James Sirius.
Luna Lovegood , a good friend. Neville and Luna, a Ravenclaw student, first met on the Hogwarts Express , in Neville found Luna a bit " odd ", as she believed in the existence of strange, mythical creatures, had a tendency to read magazines upside down, and wore earrings that appeared to be made of radishes. Luna, like Harry and Neville, had the ability to see Thestrals , as they had all seen someone die. At some point they became very close friends. Neville seems to have a place in his heart for Luna, they also remained close friends in later life.
It seemed that Luna was always glad when Neville, Ginny, Hermione, Ron, and Harry were close by, proved when the trio visited Luna's father Xenophilius Lovegood and seeing Luna's room with their painting on her bedroom ceiling connected with gold letters spelling " friends ". Draco Malfoy , his school bully. Initially shy and clumsy, Neville regularly found himself on the receiving end of insults from Draco and his gang , and was often the butt of their jokes and pranks — a fact which served only to make Neville clumsier and less confident.
When encouraged by Hermione, Ron, and Harry to stand up for himself, Neville replied with " how I can barely stand at all " but, despite this previous mind set Neville grew to be someone who was much more difficult to bully by his later years at Hogwarts.
During the Battle of Hogwarts , Neville proved to have made an impressive and complete turn around from his earlier years of crumbling under Draco's bullying, when he openly defied Lord Voldemort and beheaded Nagini , effectively destroying Voldemort's final Horcrux.
Dumbledore's Army , his friends and allies. Dumbledore's Army was an organisation led by Harry Potter that sought not only to undermine the dictatorial authority of Dolores Umbridge , but to offer students a means of learning the practical defensive magic Umbridge denied them in their actual Defence Against the Dark Arts class.
Neville became a member at the time of its formation in , and this marked something of a turning point both in terms Neville's relationships with other Hogwarts students, and in terms of his magical ability beyond Herbology.
When several Death Eaters escaped from Azkaban in early , all of the D. While training with the D. Most of the former members reunited and spent ample time hiding in the Room of Requirement , awaiting the return of Harry, Ron, and Hermione.
While Fred Weasley and Colin Creevey were tragically killed, Neville fought valiantly and eventually beheaded Nagini on Harry's orders, destroyed Voldemort's final remaining Horcrux.
