Aww, this was adorable! Neville is so awkward and sweet, it just warms my heart. I really enjoyed reading this, especially from Neville's point of view. The beginning was really good, when he was thinking about how self-assured 7th years are. It was funny how he described them and how his predictions came true.

I really liked that the Hufflepuff girl reminded him of Hannah. Hannah is such a sweet and kind person, and she's so good for Neville! I really enjoyed how he thought about Hannah, and realized that he actually thought about her a lot. You did a good job with not making his self-confidence raise too much after the war- I always felt that he'd be like Harry and not like the spotlight, not thinking that he did anything important. You did a really good portrayal of Neville's character.

The ending was adorable. I really liked how Neville was awkward and fumbling, and sort of just expected her to say no. I also liked seeing the determined side of Hannah. It's a different side to her, and I'm glad that she was able to make him realize that it wasn't a pity date. This was such a sweet one shot and brilliantly written- great job!

Hi Dee!

Aw, Neville as a teacher was really cute and I enjoyed seeing him in that role so much as it seemed as if he was just perfect for it as heís so normal and relatable and you managed to show that so well it made me aw over him throughout. I really liked that you included the stinksap bit and how they found that out through Cho as it must be good for Nevilleís confidence to have a moment of fame because even though heís probably not as shy as he used to be, it always helps people a lot.

I really liked the fact that Hannah was still lurking away in his mind and that he always liked her still as that was really cute and sweet as this pairing is always such a lovely one to read. Whoo, go Neville, I felt so proud of him going out and asking her for a drink as I almost didnít think he would so when he did that was so great. Then she was so cute with the way she was secretly happy about it. Gah, this was just so cute, way too cute, and I loved every bit of it!

Author's Response: Hi, Kiana! ♥

I'm so glad you liked Neville as a teacher, I always imagined he would be absolutely perfect at it. The stinksap bit was so fun to write, I loved that part in the book :)

I really like the Hannah/Neville pairing, I think they're much more suited than Neville/Luna- but that's another rant for another day ;)

I'm so glad you liked it ♥

First of all, I really love Bobby lol. He's so funny. I love the parallel in his character as first he seems like a cheeky boy when he says this line: "Personally, I think it's a vast improvement, I like the way it covers your face"... because LAUGHING that was great lol. And then he turns into this awkward turtle with Annabel and aww so cute. Really adorable :P

I love how you wrote Neville in this. He's patient and a great teacher. He's exactly like how I imagine him to be, and generally sweet and kind. It's what makes him one of my favourite characters! But besides that, his interactions with Hanna were SO CUTE! The last section with the "Ow" and omg omg CANNOT HANDLE! I really really loved this Dee! Thanks for a wonderful story :) ♥

I think you're the only one who commented on Bobby and I'm so glad you did, I just love him so much :p He's a typical teenage boy!

I always thought Neville would have made an AMAZING teacher, he's one of my favourites too :)

So pleased you liked this, Nadia!

I really enjoyed reading this! I have a huge soft spot for Neville and am always thrilled when I see a story that focuses on him. I just breezed through this. Your writing has such a wonderful flow. I thought your characterization of Neville was very well-done. I LOVED seeing him in the classroom and really enjoyed seeing him as a professor, interacting with the students.
Aww Neville asking out Hannah was just too cute! They do seem a perfect match for one another - and you do a great job of showing that through Hannah's ability to ease his insecurities. The ending put a huge smile on my face!

Author's Response: This was such a lovely unexpected review :D I'm SO pleased you enjoyed it, my current multi-chapter fic is very serious so it was nice to write something a little more lighthearted. Neville and Hannah are so adorable, I wish we'd seen more of them in the books!

Thanks so much for the review!

Howdy! I've been reading some Neville-related fics recently and when I saw your status on the forums, I figured I'd check this one out.

I liked the detail you went into about Neville's job at the school and the students he was teaching. I thought it helped give us a glimpse of his Post-Hogwarts personality and some insight into why Neville might have decided to become a professor aside from the simple fact that he was adept at Herbology. It also enabled the great mechanism you used of having one of his students remind him of Hannah so that his thoughts didn't just randomly wander there as they so often do in pairing-related pieces.

I also enjoyed the bits you gave us of Hannah's personality and Neville's interest in her both through his thoughts of her and their brief interaction.

I think I would've liked a little more conversational lead-up to Neville asking Hannah out, but all in all I enjoyed it.

Thanks for sharing! Good luck with the challenge!

Author's Response: Hi! Thanks for stopping by :D

This is my first Neville fic so I'm really glad you liked it. It always made perfect sense to me that Neville became a teacher so it was good to explore the lead up to that a little in this. I'm so glad you liked that Annabel led him to think about Hannah, I agree it can often be a very random thing in romance fics.

I'll definitely remember to add more dialogue in their meeting when I inevitably come back and edit this :)

Thank you for the review!

Hi Dee! I've been meaning to check out some more of your stories for a while, and this new one shot seemed like the perfect opportunity to mosey on over here.

I really enjoyed this one shot! Neville was so sweet and lovely as usual, and I like that you made him a kind and caring teacher. That's the impression that I get from Neville in general, and it's nice for him to have found something he's good at after all those years of being bullied at school.

I liked how you linked the shy Hufflepuff girl to Hannah and how Neville was reminded of her through this. It's an interesting way of subtly reminding us what qualities Hannah exhibits as a Puff and reminding the reader what exactly Neville loves about her.

The interaction between Neville and Hannah at the Leaky Cauldron was so cute! They seem very easy and natural around one another, save for Neville's nerves of course. I thought it was sweet that he went back to the self-doubt he experienced growing up but Hannah brought him back from that. Gah! So cute!

Lastly, I enjoyed how authentic you made this. I appreciated the level of detail you put into the Herbology lesson as well as even little details like Hannah wearing yellow robes, as wizards and witches did in the books, rather than Muggle clothes. It's those touches that make a big difference in a story.

Great job!

Author's Response: Hi, Jenny! Thanks for mosey-ing :D

I was so thrilled to find out in the epilogue that Neville had become a teacher. Like you said, it's great that something good happened after years of being bullied and feeling useless. I'm glad you liked his characterisation in this.

To me Neville and Hannah always makes more sense than Neville and Luna ever will, she's the epitome of a Hufflepuff and I'm not surprised Neville fell for her. I'm happy you liked their interaction, especially his moment of doubt. No number of snake decapitatings would make him THAT confident :p

I can't express how brilliant it is to know you thought it was authentic. Sometimes I read fanfiction and think it's missing the magic, you know? I like to try and include it where I can :)

Thanks so much for a lovely review, Jenny. It made my day!
