Review:Alopex says:
Oh, I just love Neville too! He's one of my favorite characters! And so is Professor McGonagall! You had me from the beginning, just because you picked those two to write about. I enjoyed the description of Neville steeling himself for the encounter at the beginning. What you included about him worrying about his nervous wand-fiddling habit and his flushing made his anxiety seem very real. I think Minerva McGonagall can be a very intimidating lady, and Neville handled himself really well. I felt so proud of him!

I was very amused by Trevor the Toadstool! That's the thing about Neville: he always comes through when he needs to, like when his uncle threw him out the window. The flashback with McGonagall at first seemed weird to me (I'm not a big fan of flahsbacks anyway, so I tend to react negatively), but it really added something to the story. This piece wouldn't have been the same without McGonagall making the comparison between Neville and his mother, and I really enjoyed the cheek both Neville and Alice gave McGonagall.

Author's Response: I agree about Neville coming through when he needs to - it has always seemed to me that he is able to perform well when he just grits his teeth and acts without overthinking it, and the times he gets into trouble and messes things up are when he spends too much time worrying and doubting himself.

I'm glad the flashback worked out favorably, too! Thank you for your review!!
