It'd be out-of-character for Hermione to hit it off with Harry and Ron (considering their personality clashes) even with a closer Neville facilitating the interaction. However, it does look like that the facilitation did help a great deal in smoothing thing out, considering how she was able to bring up topics that got even Ron's interest.

Fun seeing how the Sorting Hat prods at the student to get a certain action. In a way, that Neville argues about (a lack of) bravery and conviction actually says more about him than if he had agreed with the Hat's assessment.
I take it that the canonverse hat deliberation went along the same lines (minus the fame part)?

I think it would have been similar. I was delighted to find out that JKR said that was the choice for Neville, because I already planned to do it, but yes, I can imagine that the Hat was smarter than Voldemort about how dangerous this sweet little kid could be if pushed.

I wonder if, in canonverse, Neville maybe fretted more about Trevor's escape than he normally would have because that poor girl was wandering around without a friend.
