Was anybody else shocked by Neville's Importance in book 5? In the first
4 you see and hear about him sometimes but he isn't exactly that important.
Then book 5 comes around and he's is there all the time. And Ginny is
too. We all knew that Ginny was going to be important but Neville came
as a shock.
Of course Harry was going to have to get closer with somebody(other than
Cho!!). And than at the end of the book when Dumbledore tells him that
the prophecy could have been about him or Neville I think everybody just
had to go WOW!!! Who could have expected that.
And now that he has come into play J.K. just can't rip him out. I think
he's going to be the 4th person that Harry's group needs. Harry is like
James, Ron is like Sirus, Hermione is like Lupin, and Neville is like
Peter. Neville's importance has been like none until tell now. And I think
it's just going to grow in the last 2 books.
There is one difference with Neville and Peter. Peter was a dirty, stinky
rat(seriously) and though some people think that Neville will end up like
that, the facts point to him not going over to Voldy. He (well really
Death Eaters) made his parents go mad. So it's unlikly that he will go
Plus now that the public knows that he is back Voldy will be hard pressed
to find any new Death Eaters. Neville is very strong and is doing better
on curses and helping his friends. In the last chapters of OotP he shows
great strength and courge(he is in Gryffindor) in help the rest of he's
friends fight the Death Eaters. It says that he isn't going to stop being
a good friend. Or an enemy to Voldy. And I say all the more power to him.
