Dating Neville Longbottom: Pros and Cons

I’m a list person. I like the idea of having a little bit of my mind down on paper to serve as a reminder or to make things less confusing. A certain kind of list struck my interest recently. A few weeks ago, I began constructing pros and cons lists for Harry Potter characters as if someone were trying to decide whether or not to date them. This is the result.


To date or not to date: Neville Longbottom




Seems to only get better-looking with time… Imagine 20 years from now.

Doesn’t have an ego.

Is good with plants. I bet he would bring me beautiful flowers.

Kills snakes.

Doesn’t have a huge family to try to stay on good terms with.




Can’t let him take you dancing, unless you don’t mind having a few broken toes.

Has a little bit of an inferiority complex at times.

Is good with plants. Would he insist on decorating with ugly plants like Mimbulus mimbletonia?

His grandmother.

His parents are in St. Mungo’s. I hate hospitals.

I was 9 years old when I discovered the magic that is “Harry Potter.” I am a proud Hufflepuff and exceedingly good at eating, reading, being sarcastic, and over-thinking small tasks. Since I spent too much time worrying about the correct way to write this bio, this is all I was able to come up with before the deadline.
