He realized he had feelings when you stood up against Draco Malfoy. “Look at the dirty little mud-blood,” Malfoy said at a 1st year who was trying to study in the library.
“She thinks she’s smart, ha. Everyone knows that mud-bloods are just as dumb as their stupid muggle parents.” He and his goons Crabbe and Goyle as the girl burst into tears.
Meanwhile, you listened nearby with Harry behind a stack of books. “Eww, get your muddy tears away from me, I might get infected!” Malfoy mocked. At this, you stood up and so did Harry.
“Lay off her, Malfoy!” yelled Harry. “Careful, Potter. Don’t want your reputation to be ruined,” Malfoy sneered. The two argued while you comforted the little girl.
You calmed her down and she ran out of the library. You stood up and walked towards Malfoy. He looked you up and down and smirked. “You’re not that bad, L/n.
Ditch Potter and we can go to Hogsmeade.” Harry was about to pull out his wand but you stilled his hand. You turned around and he thought you were walking away.
And then you turned around and punched him. You got detention for a week pickling toad tongues. But it was worth it and that’s when Harry realized he loved you.
you were walking in the halls when you heard a Slytherin singing ‘Weasley is our king.’ Ron’s ears turned bright red and he looked like he wanted to throw up.
You put your hand on his shoulder and walked up to the Slytherin.
He looked like he was about to say something else, probably something offensive about your blood status, but you put your hand up to stop him.
Ron looked confused and she then you gave the Slytherin boy the best verbal SMACKDOWN he had ever heard in his life. After you were done you just sauntered off to class leaving the boy in shock.
Ron had never been more impressed or intimidated.
When you helped him with DADA. He was failing miserably so professor Lupin asked him to come by his office after class. “Hello, Mr.
Longbottom, how are you this evening?” Neville ducked his head and muttered, “good.” Lupin smiled, “that’s good.
So as you know,” his voice took on a more serious note, “your grade is low in my class so I’ve asked my best student, Y/n to tutor you.” You walked in at that exact moment and smiled.
“Hullo, again.” Neville waved and you waved back. “It seems you already know each other, excellent,” Professor Lupin said. You both nodded.
“Well, I’ll leave you to it,” He bid you both farewell and you walked out of the classroom and to the library. While you studied Neville couldn’t help but stare at you.
You caught him a few times and he would blush and look away. A week later, after many study dates, he received a test from Lupin with an O on it. “Well done Mr.
Longbottom, seems that Y/n is helping.” He blushed and nodded. As soon as the class was over he ran to find you and when he did he nearly tackled you in a hug.
“Thank you so much, Y/n! I aced my test!” You smiled and told him it was no problem.
You walked away and that was the moment as he watched your H/c hair bounce as you walked that he was crushing hard.
the moment you told him you blew Flint’s cauldron up in his face. He couldn’t help but kiss your cheek as he ran away.
When you stood up to Umbridge and came down from detention with your hand bleeding. You were coming down from detention with Umbridge the third night in a row.
He met you at the bottom of the staircase and immediately grabbed your hand. “George it’s nothing,” you said, trying to pull your hand out of his but his grip was firm and gentle.
He glared at the words, ‘I must not insult teachers.’ You had called her an old hag and then said that that was wrong because calling her that was an insult to hags.
So you called her an ugly toad who should go back to the pond scum where she belongs. You had done this for banning Harry, Fred, and George from Quidditch.
And it was then at 12 o’clock staring at your bleeding hand that you had earned for standing up for him that he realized he was in love.
He's had a crush on you since you were kids.
