Firsts

Memories

AN: So this is just a series of little drabbles set throughout Neville's life, documenting his most important "firsts." This will be for the most part both as book and movie compliant as humanly possible. 


Memories

The first memory that Neville Longbottom has is of his mother. He's not even sure it's a real memory, honestly. It's just an image that he carries around in his mind and thinks about when he's lying in bed at night. It's possible that he invented it, or pieced it together from other memories and thoughts. After all, he was only a year old at the time, and he doesn't have any other real memories until he's three. He likes to think it's real though.

The memory isn't anything very magnificent either. He can just see his mother's face over him. It's not her face as he sees it every time he goes to visit her in St. Mungo's, with the pallid skin and vacant eyes and graying hair. No, it's her face the way it is in the old photographs Gran keeps bound up in a leather album; all heart-shaped face and rosy round cheeks and sweet smile. In his memory her face is just hovering above him, staring down at him with the pale blue eyes so much like his own, and she's smiling as she hums. He can never make out the song, it sounds like some sort of lullaby and it seems to change a little bit every time he thinks about it. But it feels serene and comforting. It's what soothes him to sleep at night, and it's what finally powers his Patronus into a corporeal form.

It's a simple little memory, but it's the first and the best one that he's got.

LouiseJ2: I enjoyed the detail you went into with regards to the case. It made the UNSUB appear believable. The crisis in the middle of the story was my favorite part, very dramatic but not over the top.

abbiekelly18: I was hooked quite quickly like I am to other books but I liked how this was a biker gang and she had ties to another biker gang. Overall it was good but I didn't like how Jax was nice and then suddenly horrible to Amber. There is grammatical errors which normally makes me stop reading but I kept...

bansodeyari: The story is really wonderful. It has details (sometimes which are not needed). The story is plotted well. It's lengthy though, but worth reading. It is based on realty which normal people face. Overall I loved it. Peace✌️.

Prime Rabel: Love the writing and explaining the whole world was simply magnificent. The writer kept the pace up and was eager to finish this novel although it ended so soon.

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did.
