PotterCast (not sure when)
I am not sure what episode of PotterCast this is from, all I know is that it is in 2005 but here we go:
MA: Yeah. What do you think? Snape – good or bad?
ML: Ohhh, I really don’t think that he’s bad. I just, I don’t. I think he’s still a good guy.
MA: Yeah. What do you…what is it, you think, because this is now the number one debate in Harry Potter fandom, so, why? Why is he not bad?
ML: I’ve put through my head so many different ways thinking, “What could be a reason for him doing that? How could be the big plan?” I really don’t know. I just – the fact that he trusted him, and, I don’t know. I just get the feeling that he’s a good guy.
MA: Yeah. Any theories on where there’s a Horcrux?
ML: I reckon, yeah, you know the things that are being stollen by, oh what’s-his-name! I’ve gone and forgotten his name, now! The guy who’s stealing jewelry from Sirius’s house.
ML: Yes! Mundungus! I reckon that he’s under the Imperius Curse, and he’s stealing Horcruxes.
MA: Neville. Who would you like to see him with?
ML: Hmm…..Ahh….. Luna Lovegood.
MA: Did you know that J.K. Rowling said… that she shot that down on her website?
MA: Yeah, she said that Neville and Luna shippers, it’s just not going to happen because Neville would always be too alarmed by Luna’s wacky brand.
ML: That’s totally true, actually, yeah. She’s got that one right, actually. I just thought off the top of my head that she’s a little bit crazy and he’s the total opposite. But it could be a bit funny. But she’s got it absolutley right with his character. He’s always kind of terrified of her, I think.
MA: The only person I can think of is Hannah Abbott.
ML: Yeah, she’s sort of quiet. Not really speak up too much.
MA: Yeah, and she tends to get mentioned in Herbology scenes and we see that’s Neville’s strong suit.
