Just sayin', part two


When I was a wee young thing reading Harry Potter, I was inexplicably in love with Neville Longbottom. Most of my Potter-related daydreams revolved around holding hands with Neville behind the greenhouses, helping Neville with his wandwork (totally innocently, people--I was twelve, tops), having butterbeer with Neville on trips to Hogsmeade, converting Neville to Mormonism so that we could get married. Etc.

Of course in hindsight it's clear that my young self was powerfully omniscient. Not only did book!Neville grow into a complete and total badassmotherfucker, but movie!Neville grew up to look like this:

Did I have good taste or what? (image via the Fuggirls)

So sweet!! I'm sure that if I'd had these as a kid, I would have preferred Neville too. As it is, I was already a grown-up when the first book came out, and read most of the series as a mom. So of course my fave was Snape.

@Ruby: WHY IS IT NOT THE FIFTEENTH YET


@bardologist: Seriously. He almost has a sort of Clive Oweny thing going on.

@C.L.: My adult self loves Lupin. There's a Potter male for every stage of life! :D
