This is definitely the cutest spell I’ve ever seen cast!
According to Eonline, Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton) and Neville Longbottom (Matthew Lewis), the two salient figures representing the Hogwarts houses Slytherin and Gryffindor, hung out in L.A. with serious Harry Potter vibes!
In this picture, we can see Felton is acting as if he’s threatening Lewis, with one hand over his prey and the other holding a dark green bag imprinted with a Slytherin mark. Lewis, however, does not look like an ordinary prey－he is PROUD! With Felton’s caption, “See how close he was to converting” and the hashtag “gryffindork,” OWWWWW, we’ve decoded this situation－Draco Malfoy, as if his villain fuel continues, is hijacking our little cute Neville!
What would Neville say to this?
Well, our tiny Neville is not tiny anymore! He was best known for his brilliantly bright and brave behavior when confronting Voldemort’s snake in Deathly Hallows, and in his Instagram post, Lewis jokingly shouts out, “Take your Slytherin paws off me, you damn dirty ape!” The ape metaphor implies to Felton’s acting in Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011).
Well, this Hogwarts house humor is not the first of its kind. Eonline also recalled that in 2015 when Felton enrolled on Pottermore, he tweeted:
Today was the day. I finally did it. I joined Pottermore and was sorted into……..Gryffindor. Heart broken x #slytherinforlife

In J. K. Rolling’s original setting, Malfoy is kind of the leader of Slytherin squad and he’s proud of that, but apparently, Tom Felton was sorted into his enemy house!
Responding to that, Rolling tweeted:
.@TomFelton I could’ve told you that years ago. I just didn’t want to spoil your motivation ;)
