It’s been a big two weeks for Harry Potter fans. First, we got Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 on Blue-Ray. Then focus shifted to HP7 Part 2, as Warner Bros finally released hi-res stills, more details on the video game, and (it’s about a time) an official trailer.

One of the photos released was this one of Neville Longbottom at the battle at Hogwarts. It reaffirms my belief that Neville is one of the most complex and endearing characters in the entire Harry Potter series. (Brave, sensitive, AND he can pull off a grandpa cardigan? Be still my heart.) I really think that he, not Ron, is the one who belongs with Hermione, but maybe just not until they’re in their mid-twenties. They could meet up for a quick drink after not seeing each other for years and then end up talking for hours. Neville will have spent his days as the sweet guy always in the friend zone, while Hermione has given up on finding anyone who challenges her. (She realized years ago that Ron had the emotional maturity of a 12 year-old.) Neville and Hermione quickly realize how much they have in common ...okay, okay, I’ll leave my fan fiction out of this.
But, In the spirit of my Neville crush, I bring you my favorite Harry Potter pick-up lines from around the web.
5. I know we're not in Professor Flitwick's class, but you still are charming.
4. If you were a Dementor, I'd become a criminal just to get your kiss.
3. If I were to look into the Mirror of Erised, I'd see the two of us together.
2. You can have the portkey to my heart.
1. Your smile's like expelliarmus: simple but disarming.
How could you possibly turn down those lines? *swoon*
