remember when we found out Neville Longbottom had bigger balls than anyone else in the HP series

remember how Dumbledore told us this in the very first book, but no one believed him

meanwhile, when this is all over, Neville gets to be like “Voldemort knew my name. Can anyone else besides Harry say that? I’m so badass that even Voldemort knew who I was.”

"You know how I think they choose people for the Gryffindor team?’
said Malfoy a few minutes later, as Snape awarded Hufflepuff another penalty for no reason at all. ‘It’s people they feel sorry for. See, there’s Potter, who’s got no parents, then there’s the Weasleys, who’ve got no money – you should be on the team, Longbottom, you’ve got no brains.’
Neville went bright red but turned in his seat to face Malfoy.
I’m worth twelve of you, Malfoy,’ he stammered.
Malfoy, Crabbe and Goyle howled with laughter, but Ron, still not daring to take his eyes from the game, said, ‘You tell him Neville.”

Actual BAMF sweetheart Neville fucking Longbottom, tho. <3

I have a massive amount of admiration for Neville’s subtle kind of bravery. We all rightfully recognize his undeniable BAMFness by the end of the series, but tbh he was always one of the bravest people, right from his first year at Hogwarts.

Because let me tell you something, Neville’s worst fear was Severus SnapeThat’s his worst fear. Try to consider your own worst fear; it might be something as ~irrational~ as Neville’s fear of his teacher, like Ron’s extreme fear of spiders, or something we can all understand and easily sympathize with, like Harry’s fear of the Dementors. Anyway, if you’ve been in a situation where you’ve really confronted that fear, you know that it’s not a pleasant feeling.

Neville’s fear being irrational doesn’t make it any less real. And unlike people like Harry or Ron, it’s not something he could avoid. Severus Snape was something Neville had to face on a daily basis, day after day after day. For years. Try to imagine facing your own worst fear - the thing you are the most afraid of - every. single. fucking. day. after. day. after. day. He couldn’t escape it, or even actively do anything to try and avoid it; to improve his situation. His life was like a fucking emotional prison; Ron could avoid the spiders (most of the time), Harry could learn to protect himself with a patronus, but Neville, he had to take potions and take all of Snape’s shit - he had to show up to his classes and live in constant fear. And you know what? He fucking endured. 

Like will you sit the fuck down, Neville was always a fucking badass and braver than most peopleBow.
