Another great chapter! The Birthday reminds me a lot of Teddy's Great Pre-Hogwarts Orphan Tour :)

I love how you use little moments like Neville wanting to disappear into the toilets to avoid people and then staying out anyway to show his quiet bravery.

And Peter is the new Frank and Alice ... oh gods that's heartbreaking. I particularly like the discussion of Snape. It hit the right shades of grey for his character.

It could have been you, Neville thought. You could be on your own, and I could have a whole big family, and a little brother and sister, and a godfather on the Wizengamot.

I totally see where Neville is coming from with this wish, and just knowing how it did end up happening in canon ... well, poor Neville. He just can't catch a break in either timeline.
