Neville’s office isn’t in the castle.  Well, there is technically a room assigned to him (third floor, fifth door on the right, mind the re-located portrait of Sir Cadogan).  But if you needed help with your Herbology assignment or were sent to see the Head of Gryffindor House about that parakeet you snuck into the fifth floor girl’s toilets, you would never find him there.
Neville had a small cottage near the greenhouses.  There had been some grumbling about its creation when Neville first started teaching, but it was hard to argue with the Minister’s favorite advisor who just happened to be a hero.  So the cottage was built and young Mr. Longbottom and his new wife moved onto the Hogwarts grounds.
There was a steady stream of students coming in and out of the little house during class breaks.  Some carried odd potted plants, some looks of guilt etched on their faces, and some simply dropped by to say hello.  The windows had bright curtains and the chimney always cheerfully puffed smoke.  It was hard not to feel welcomed by the cozy exterior.
Things were different after night fell.  Students still weren’t allowed to wander the grounds at night, but everyone turned a blind eye to those who knocked on the cottage door under cover of darkness.  These students carried no gifts and bore no cheery smiles.  Their faces were tear-stained or bruised or fearful.  They were hunched over, trying to make themselves as small as possible.  They knocked on the door with shaking hands and trembling lips. 
When they entered they would find a crackling fire, a squashy armchair, some of Hannah Longbottom’s famous ginger biscuits and a steaming cup of tea.  And they would find Professor Longbottom, smiling kindly.  He heard stories of homesickness, of bullies and taunts, of fears and failures.  He dried tears and patted backs.  And most importantly, he listened.  
He might quietly find a bully and intervene.  He might Apparate from the Three Broomsticks to the nearest Muggle town and place a call to a concerned parent.  He might consult with Madam Pomfrey on the best way to help manage the anxieties of an overwhelmed fifth year.  He might simply sit and give a firm and thoughtful piece of advice.  But this is not why students came to Professor Longbottom’s house when life was bleak and Hogwarts was too much to bear.
They came because he had once, so many years ago, been like them.  And because they, unlike him, would never have to be alone.

meet bartholomew hawke and his seeing eye mabari temba.
bartholomew is a sarcastic asshole but also a really lovable one. he has a crooked smile and always has a stupid pun at the ready. he is 100% the source of carver’s exasperation.
malcolm hawke traded with some visiting merchants to get temba as a pup to raise along side little bartholomew so he’d have someone to be his eyes for him. that dog is incredibly loyal and people swear he even laughs at bartholomew’s shitty jokes.
bartholomew likes to trip passing templars with his “”“”walking stick”“”” and pretend it was all an accident. he always sounds so sincere about his “”“apologies”“” no one has ever suspected him. except for his poor exasperated mother.
bartholomew loves his baby brother and sister to bits. he used to carry bethany on his shoulders when they were little, and make her tell him what everything looked like. and while he and carver have their issues they love each other dearly. and maker have mercy on anyone who talks shit about bartholomew withing carver’s hearing. the only person allowed to say anything negative about bartholomew is him.
when carver is really upset with him he calls him barty. carver is the only one who has ever been allowed to call him that without getting hit upside the head with his staff.

nerdskitten said: Oh no equius is… He made a robot Aradia for Aradia’s soul to go into and he programmed her to love him„, and he’s rly controlling of nepeta :s

oh no that’s not cute at all :x (i have no idea who Aradia is though)

Allow me to explain yeah he did the soul thing without Aradia’s (the Aries zodiac troll) consent and that wasn’t okay but both her and Nepeta are lowbloods and they can be culled based on that so Equius’ romantic affections for Aradia blindsided the whole consent aspect

and with Nepeta they’re essentially platonic soulmates and the whole reason he’s very controlling of her is because she’s hardcore into LARPing (essentially) and that alone is very dangerous (another player became paralyzed through it) and her being a lowblood he feels that because his highblood status requires him to protect his friends of lower bloodcast. So Aradia’s situation is arguably abusive yes but his relationship with Nepeta was for her protection and she still has control over herself and her decisions in their relationship.

btw I’m so sorry I butt in on this I’m just v passionate about Homestuck

@,@ homestuck is complicated. I liked Equius a lot more when I thought he was just a big dorky dude who sweated a lot :c
