The Other Chosen One

Regards to my elders

Greetings ladies and gentlemen

It has been 20 years since Harry Potter came to know that he was a wizard and traveled on the Hogwarts Express to study in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Today we celebrate the birthday of Harry Potter and J.K Rowling. But a day earlier was Neville Longbottoms birthday, who has been a prominent figure in the series. The Other Chosen One

Neville’s fate has been deeply entwined with Harry by Rowling in the fifth installment in the series, The Order of The Phoenix. Harry is back with Dumbledore in his office after he sees his godfather, Sirius, been killed by Bellatrix Lestrange. He asks Dumbledore why Voldemort has been after him so long? What was the reason he was condemned to this fate. Then Dumbledore tells Harry about the prophecy made by Sybill Trelawney about 16 years ago,

The one with the power to vanquish the dark lord approaches…Born to those who have thrice defied him, born as the seventh month dies…and the dark lord will mark him as equal but he will have powers the dark lord knows not…and either must die at the hand of the other for neither can live while the other survives…the one with the power to vanquish the dark lord will born as the seventh month dies…

The movie does not tell us about the whole prophecy but Dumbledore from the novel does the explaining. Dumbledore tells Harry that only 2 sets of parents were able to defy Voldemort 3 times, one of course were Harry’s Parents and the other were Neville’s parent, Frank and Alice Longbotttom. This way Neville came very close in acquiring Harry’s fate. When Harry asks why did the Dark Lord came after Harry and not Neville, Dumbledore says that Voldemort must have found similarity between Harry and himself. He chose the boy most likely of being danger to him, Harry being a half blood the same as Voldemort.

Neville’s kills the snake: The Other Chosen One

In the last installment Neville has been given the credit he deserved, I guess. Before going to the forest and using the Resurrection Stone he tells Neville to kill Nagini(Horcrux). Neville gets his deserved bright fate by killing Nagini with Gryffindors sword by taking it out of the sorting hat,proving he was more Gryffindor in himself than anyone !!!
