Favorite Scene   Leave a comment

Aside from the Marauder’s Map, this is one of my favorite scenes – at the time that Professor Snape was still considered as the bane in Harry’s life rather than his protector.

One of my favorite characters is Neville Longbottom.  He’s one of those characters that has made huge transformation and made such an impact.  He’s the boy that almost became the chosen one and yet he made something out of himself in such a way that you will never even think about “what if” or “could have been.”

According to JK Rowling, during the Sorting Ceremony, Neville has requested to be placed in Hufflepuff.  He was intimidated by the reputation of Gryffindor that chooses bravery.  However, the Sorting Hat knew immediately and was determined to place Neville in Gryffindor.  Their silent battle went on for about four minutes, almost reaching a Hatstall.  But the Sorting Hat won and we couldn’t have been happier.

From the shy, unobtrusive boy who forgets everything, he went and became one of the Wizarding World’s hero.
