Neville as Headmaster?Possibility?
Posted 19 July 2011 - 01:37 PM
So, do you think Neville could step up to the role?

I've come to realize that in my stories before the completion of DH, I always gave Neville the more step-up roles. In one he is indeed Headmaster. In another he is Minister of Magic, and sometimes I wish JKR would have given him that role rather than the Herbology teacher.
He stepped up so much further and further as the Harry Potter story progressed, so yes. I would like to see him stepping up even after the epilogue.

I know you totally didn't mean it this way, but
I'm old, honey, but not THAT old!
lol, that made my day
I could definitely see Neville as headmaster, it's a wonderful idea. Especially once he's older, he would be very wise. Perhaps like Dumbledore?

First off, I think Neville as a teacher is a great idea. I love Jo Rowling for giving him the Herbology position. I've definitely thought that when he took that position, he also took over as Head of Gryffindor. I think McGonagall was Headmistress after the war, but she was old, right? So it's conceivable that she could have passed away eventually, leaving the position of Headmaster up for grabs.
I definitely think Neville would be in the forerunning for the job, since he really is so loyal and just (as someone pointed out above). I don't think he would campaign for the job, no, but I think he would accept it if offered to him. And his age doesn't really affect that. He seems more than qualified to me.

Basically repeating what everyone else has said, I think he is very qualified!

I personally don't see Neville as being ambitious enough to actively pursue the headmaster role. But I could totally see him being nominated for the position and very flustered/embarrassed.
Totally agree with you on this point! I can definelty see everyone wanting him to take up the role, but I don't think it's actually something he'd go after himself.
Also, when first seeing this topic, I just got a mental image of Neville with a long white beard, sitting in the headmaster's office swinging the sword of Gryffindor around all day while making lightsaber noises. Although, maybe that's just what I'd do if I were headmaster

I think that Neville would be a good Headmaster, whether he'd come after McGonagall or not, i'm not so sure, maybe head of Gryffindor first, than Deputy headmaster then headmaster. Maybe someone would come between the two. I can sort of imagine Neville being almost chosen after her but then they decide to use someone else before he get's the position or he turns it down the first time it was offered. Not sure why that's what i feel, maybe because i'd imagine him a bit older, in his 50's before he gets the position.
