Personally, if Voldermort picks Neville, Neville may be as courageous as Harry but I think that he is not the risk-taker or adventure person like Harry. Do you remember in Sorcerer's Stone, Neville once prevented Harry to go to see the mirror by using his visible cloak because Neville is a wizard who prefers to stay in the comfort zone while Harry is more a type of wizard who likes to go beyond comfort zone. In addition, it needs someone who has be like Voldermort; ambitious, cunning and have the courage to adventure in very dangerous places. I don't see from Neville while I see more from Harry. I think if it was Neville, he would the scar but i don't think that he would be able to survive against Voldermort. The friends like Hermonie, Sirius, Dumbledore and Ron are very important to Harry's life, i don't know if Neville would get as much support as Harry. Furthermore, it needs intelligent to get to Voldermort while i think that Harry is little more intelligent than Neville. Yes, Neville's parents would for sure died for him but if Neville ever happen to meet Voldermort, I think that he may not be what it takes to survive against Voldermort. I always see there is difference between Harry and Neville.

Er... i don't really know hah... but as the physicalness yeah.
The whole reason can be a coward sometimes is because of his grandma, that's just a guess, unlike harry who grew up with crappy aunt and uncle.

But you would think that how Harry grew up not knowing anything about his parent he would be the coward.

Voldemort would have successfully killed Neville that first night. The only reason Harry survived was because his mother was given a choice to live (because Snape had asked Voldemort not to kill her) and chose to die for her son. Voldemort would have had no reason to give either of Neville's parents a choice - he would have just killed them, then killed Neville.

It's also why James' death didn't save Lily - he wasn't given the choice, Voldemort had always intended to kill him.

You're right.. And I suppose that's why Harrys death protected everyone at the battle of Hogwarts too, because he chose to die... Or?

It would seem so, Harry certainly seems to think so in his little speech to Voldemort.

I've always liked this because it means you can basically trace Voldemorts fall back to Snape's love for Lily.

If Voldemort had picked Neville, I really do not think that he would ahve survived. Neville didn't have friends like Ron and Hermione, and without them even Harry would not have accomplished the defeat of Voldemort. At least Voldemort was right in this respect, that Harry was the bigger threat and he wanted him taken out before he could develop his skills as a wizard and become even more deadly.

Voldemort probably picked Harry because he was the easiest to get to. James best friend was Voldemorts spy. If he had picked Neville then Nevilles parents would probably have chosen Dumbledore as there secret keeper, effectively making it impossible to get to Neville. The war would never have ended at that point and would have carried on quite differently. The prophecy wouldn't have been started on that night, or maybe not ever.

It might be that Alice or Frank wouldn't have been able to die for Neville. What if they hadn't been there, or they weren't given the same option as Lily?

But I think if Neville had survived, he could have defeated Voldemort just as well. But I think everything would have happened faster, and differently.

If Voldemort has chosen Neville as the more dangerous, Snape would have never have alerted Dumbldore to his master's plan because Lily was in no danger. Voldy made his own downfall possible by betraying a loyal servants request to protect his great love. When Snape told his Master of the prophecy and if he then selected Neville, Snape would have just sat by and watched his family destroyed. The only reason Harry was 'Great' was because Voldemort made it so, that was Harry's own belief as well.

I keep thinking this, and I think Harry would've been cocky anyways. But, I can't see it as "Neville Longbottom and the..." , it's just wrong. Neville would've been the hero, and Harry would be the nerd that we would all learn to love. But, in the end, I don't think it would've worked out. I don't think it would've been as good of a series as it was.

It wouldnt be as good i agree but it would be cool to see Neville get the girl.

IamSloane you have to think, Neville mother was an auror which also means she probably wasnt afraid to die so she would have died for neville, and of course, that could create the love sheild too. But unless Voldemrt came in while they were sleeping and killed Neville without them knowing then I believe Neville would have a 70% chance of surviving depending on WHEN Voldemort came.

If Neville had been chosen, the seven books about the adventures of Harry Potter would not have been very good.

wow cant even imagine it!i quess to talk more realistic today we would be experiencin the neville longbottom phenomenon and not the harry potter one-even though this name is more catchy.at the end of the day its all about rowlings choice,and this neville would also have achieved or try hard anyways just to make the story the blockbuster the money!in a more elaborate level we would get to know neville better all forms of aspects of his life and if the total exchange of lives between harry and neville is not the case, then we would come up with a different equally intriquing plot...

so you can convince yourself that im cute

It would have depended. Would Nevilles mum have died to protect him like harry's mum did? Because i think it all hangs on the charm. If she didnt, he would have died. If she did, then he would proably ahve the scar... but there are too many events to determine what neville would have done in Harry's place. He may have slipped up etc...or done things differently which would have determined different outcomes on everything, which in turn would have affected everything else

You know, I've wondered that from the very moment we found out about the possibility. In my opinion, Neville would have done a great job as "the chosen one." He would have stepped up to the plate, and though he is a bit more shy and soft spoken than Harry, he would have come out of his shell eventually. That being said, I think Harry would still have been a troublemaker and somehow found his way into the presence of Neville. Harry's character calls for his involvement, and he would have been involved with the downfall of Voldemort, just indirectly in this case.

That would have been a very interesting world indeed.

It probably would be different because Neville would still be living with his grandmother who is not a muggle and Harry would still be living with the dursleys. The invisibility cloak would also be Harry's because it was his fathers.

Yeah, that's true also. Neville could never have become the true owner of the invisibility cloak, as it was an heirloom within Harry's father's family. Neville was great in his own way, but Harry was and remains "The chosen one".

you know, I don't know for sure if we can ever answer this question. Because it wasn't the boy that was the true key--it was Voldemort's decision that led to the events. If Voldemort had picked Neville, I don't think it would have panned out as it did. (Well, obviously.) I'm not sure Neville's mother would have died for her son--not because she didn't love him that much, but because it would have been different circumstances. Supposing she hadn't just been with Neville? Supposing she had already put him to bed. Would she even have had time to get to the crib to shield Neville?

Again, we will never know for sure. But I do think that Neville would never have been able to shoulder that much responsibility. He is a wonderful character, don't get me wrong, but he would not have been able to take the weight of the world on his shoulders like Harry did.

"It's not who you are that holds you back, it's who you think you are not."

Honestly I'm not sure that Neville would have made it as far as Harry or if he would have succeeded. Although, who knows. I think Harry's natural way of thinking and his natural skills of being observant and a survivor, in addition to the power that Voldemort gave him by believing in the prophet, allowed him to win. Harry and Neville are so different in personality that I think things would have gone totally different. Plus, whose to say that Neville would have survived the killing curse? Maybe his mother wouldn't have the same kind of magic to protect him as Lily did.

If Voldmort chose Neville, I think that every event after that leading up to Voldmorts death would have happen differently. Yes, his parents would have died for him, as Harry's parents did for him. Yes, I believe that Neville would still be alive at the end.
