Monday/Memeday: Longbottom

Still trying to figure out why those Neville Longbottom books are named after the Potter kid.  Neville’s ultimate defiance of Voldemort, in the face of Voldemort’s mocking, was (with apologies to “Dobby is a free elf!”) the most badassed moment of the entire series. Sorry if this offends your theocratic or political sensibilities (I’m really not sorry, but it is polite to say so.)

Native, Militant Westsylvanian (the first last best place), laborer, gardener, and literary hobbyist (if by literary you mean "hack"). I've had a bunch of different blogs, probably four, due to a recurring compulsion to start over. This incarnation owes to a desire to dredge up the best entries of the worst little book of hand-scrawled poems I could ever dream of writing, salvageable excerpts from fiction both in progress and long-abandoned. and a smattering of whatever the hell seems to fit at any particular moment. At first blush, I was here just to focus on old, terrible verse, but I reserve the right to include...anything. Maybe everything, certainly my love of pulp novels, growing garlic, the Pittsburgh Steelers and howling at the moon--both figuratively and, on rare occasions, literally.

Neville did become the most bad ass character in the books, so much so that the fan theories of “He’s the Chosen One!” became so pervasive that J. K. Rowlings finally took to the Internet and got snippy about how he WASN’T. And the real truth is, the Elder Wand killed Voldemort, doing a sort of “I’m rubber and you’re glue” moment on Harry. Neville would have probably cut Voldie’s head off given the chance.
