Let’s admit it, Neville would totally be that teacher everyone has a crush on. First years would giggle because they’d grown up hearing all about him but he’s just this very cool guy and he never condescends to them like some other teachers. Third years would fall in love with him the way only 13 year olds can - completely, madly, can’t-stop-thinking-about-him, plan-your-wedding, cry-yourself-to-sleep-at-night-because-he’ll-never-love-you-like-you-love-him love. Seventh years will bitch to their friends about how inconvenient it is to still be blushing and tongue-tied around the guy who’s supposed to write you letters of recommendation and how pathetic they feel still hoping that he’ll ask them to travel the world with him on one of his horticultural adventures but shut up it could totally happen.
And Neville will spend the entire time having no idea what’s going on.
