I always knew Neville had self doubt, but actually reading the words...It rather depressing.

However, the fact that I can feel that simply by the words you've put to paper (or computer) means a job well done. [:

One of the best I've read. Neville is not really one of my favorite characters, but your characterization is both moving and realistic. Really great work!

Beautifully written - definitely the best story in this collection. I've never really thought of Neville that much, but I can't stop thinking about him now. You truly have a gift.

Author's Response: I am honoured you liked this so much, as Neville is one of my favourite characters. Thank you for your kind and thoughtful comments.

What admirable use of metaphors, and the content ROCKS. Neville will prove himself eventually, and I give you full credit in advance for showing it to all of us.

Poor Neville! He has one of the saddest characters in the Harry Potter series. I have tears in my eyes. And that last paragraph was more than true.

Oh, this was really beautiful. "He faced him everyday, in the vacant smiles of his parents, in his own self-doubt" was my favorite line, which made me cry. I really love the way you've portrayed Neville, you've shown exactly that side of him that I've come to love over the books. The use of details in this was also great. I particularly liked the comparison to Harry and the fact that he keeps a drawer with bubblegum wraps, among which he's got a favorite that reminds him of what he thinks his mother's eyes were like. Brilliant. I hope we'll get to see much, much more of Neville in the future, I have a feeling JK's got much in store for him. You really did an amazing job with this.

The way he compares his situation to Harry's, the sweet wrappers... and the last line brings things into a different perspective that i think i like

Wow, this is truly AMAZING. This chapter, this perspective, this Neville... everything fits together perfectly and the way you explain how he feels is formidable! I think this must be one of my favourite chapters in this whole story... I just... I just.... I don't know... I just really really really loved this chapter, and I can't wait to read more of your work!

5th April 2005:
This (I'm so glad that you took on all three Longbottoms, you did an amazing job on both) was also amazing! Neville has so much personality, and you've given him plentiful unique qualities, both good and bad. Kind of bitter, more so than the Neville I imagine, but that's what made it so intriguing! Definitely a fresh look at a character I like. I wouldn't be surprised if JKR writes a future Neville like this... Very realistic, and very intriguing. The end is so hopeful... I'm definitely going to be thinking all day. Thanks!

Oh my gosh! This is so beautiful! In a single moment, you have Neville feeling so much and dealing with his thoughts so well. This quote in particular brought on the tears: "Harry didn’t have a drawer full of empty sweet wrappers.". Everything about this is so wonderful, I'm quite speechless.

Harry didn’t have a drawer full of empty sweet wrappers. That made me cry! Having written the Longbottoms, I was so looking forward to reading your Neville and I wasn't disappointed. this is a wonderful, simple but emotional piece. The use of the sweet wrappers is just heart-breaking. His Gran's austere manner, and his inner shame at not veing all he should be is just so good. I loved it!

Oh, Siren, this was just heart-breaking and perfect. "Some still shined deceptively, but beneath them he knew there laid the cracked and peeling remnants of a dream he still clung to." I love that line. I love that your Neville finds comfort in routine. It's so sad the comparison he makes between Harry's situation and his own...but so true. I loved this line too: "Harry didn’t have a drawer full of empty sweet wrappers." Wonderful job.

Oh my gosh this almost brought tears to my eyes- well not almost, it did. Very well done! You were able to extract the essence of what I think of; as Neville's great sorrow and yet his gentleness, loyalty and strength. bravo-bravo. Natasha

I'm sitting here, bawling my head off. He faced him everyday, in the vacant smiles of his parents, in his own self-doubt. Sums up poor, poor, Neville beautifully. Masterfully done, dear.
