Longbottom Recruited as New Hogwarts Herbology Professor
#ThrowbackThursday: 23rd July 2003
The Dumbledore’s Army Alumni have seemingly enrolled in a range of acclaimed careers since the conclusion of the war; yesterday another was added to it’s list, as notorious rebel Neville Longbottom was employed as Hogwart’s new Herbology Professor.
The vacancy surfaced last week as former Herbology professor and Head of Hufflepuff House - Pomona Sprout - announced her retirement. It seems Longbottom swiftly grasped at the opportunity for a career change, perhaps dissatisfied with his former position of employment as an Auror; this is presumably a major blow for the department, whom also lost ex-Auror Ron Weasley last April to the majorly successful joke shop, Weasleys’ Wizard Wheeze’s.
At just 23 Longbottom is the youngest Herbology professor in 2 centuries, however this ceased to concern Hogwarts Headmistress Minerva Mcgonagall who claimed Longbottom was “the obvious choice for the position.” This has not halted parents’ concerns however, whom are particularly perturbed by Longbottom’s notorious schooling reputation. As an associate of Dumbledore’s Army, Longbottom caused an array of disruptions during his academic career. During his 7th year, the professor reportedly released thousands of crickets upon the hallways, causing a subsequent infestation; as well as reports of food fights, itching powder, and even stealing. Is this the kind of individual whom should be responsible for our children?
Neverless Longbottom released a statement yesterday afternoon, clearing up such rumours. “I’m over the moon to be Hogwart’s new Herbology professor. I can assure to all those claiming my schooling reputation means I’m ill-fitted for the job, that all rule breaking was done out of protest of You-Know-Who.”
Despite such claims, Longbottom was reportedly seen last night in Diagon Alley’s The Leaky Cauldron celebrating with his immediate friends. Among the crowd were his Dumbledore’s Army Associates - Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Luna Lovegood, Dean Thomas, Seamus Finnegan, Hannah Abbott, George Weasley and Angelina Johnson, as well as Harry and Ginny Potter, who’s first child is due in September.
Only time will tell whether Longbottom shall surface as just as skilled as his Herbology predecessor, but nevertheless, we wish Mr Longbottom the best of luck in his new career!
