For Everyone Who Knows Neville Longbottom Was The Best Damn Character In "Harry Potter"

"You and whose army?"

Posted on

We need to discuss Neville Longbottom. And the fact he is underrated AF, because he's the best damn character and incredibly brave from the very beginning.

Despite the fact he once fainted at the sound of a Mandrake's scream, he was hugely talented in Herbology.

And in some moments, he was basically all of us.

Same, Neville. Same.

He was willing to stand up to Ron, Harry and Hermione even though it was three against one.

"It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends".

His biggest fear, Professor Snape, was someone he had to see all the time. Which must have taken some serious balls to put up with.

He stood by his beliefs and turned down Voldemort's invitation to join the Death Eaters, responding with "I'll join you when hell freezes over!"

He also stood up to Death Eaters on the train in a surprisingly sassy way.

And he was the sweetest of souls, who practised dancing so that he could impress Ginny Weasley.

Neville also gifted us with the best declaration of love ever when he voiced his feelings for Luna.

His kindness seemed to know no bounds, as he helped his friends even when they were treating him like a nuisance.

Bet you cared about plants when Neville's gillyweed helped you breathe underwater, didn't you Harry?

He was overlooked despite the fact he's pretty similar to Harry. Like Harry, he endured a lot of terrible things. Such as his parents being tortured for information.

And really the only thing that separated Neville and Harry is circumstance. After all, Neville could have been the Chosen One if things had gone differently.

In some respects he was chosen, as he led Dumbledore's Army and became an excellent leader.

As well as completely fucking fearless.

He destroyed Nagini, the final Horcrux, whilst wearing a cardigan.

Slay, Neville, slay.

And most impressively of all, he pulled the sword of Gryffindor out of the Sorting Hat like it's no big deal.

Neville, you are the ultimate underdog and for that, we love you.
