Snape didn’t just hate Neville for being bad at Potions – Snape’s particular hatred for Neville was because if Voldemort had decided Neville was the Chosen One and gone after him, Lily would still be alive, amirite?

You're assumption that I got a Harry Potter speculation that has been floating around the Internet since the 7th book was realised from MLIA is incorrect - however, I am acknowledging the website I heard it from.

Actually, Snape never heard the part about Neville, Dumbledore kicked him out before it got to that.

@1174946 (Simon): Surely, Dumbledore would have told Snape about his mistake.

Um, the part about Neville was that the baby was born late july to OotP parents. Snape heard that part and so Voldemort went for Harry. What Snape missed was the part about the kid having "power the Dark Lord knows not" and that "one cannot live while the other survives."

That's not it... Snape didn't even know that the prophecy referred to the Potters until Voldemort said he was off to attack them, so unless Dumbledore told him, there's no reason Snape would know that Neville also fit the bill.
Don't get me wrong, Snape's an amazing character, but he's not a great guy. Sometimes he was just mean to be mean. He was constantly patronized throughout his childhood and adolescence, and as a teacher, he could really just be a bully.

Well since you're obviously waiting for the last movie, let me spoil it for you: Snape loved Lilly, Harry's mom. Snape told voldemort about the prophesy when he was death eater and Voldemort went to kill Harry, leading to Lilly's death. Snape hated Voldemort after that and became a double agent, working for Dumbledore (killing him on his orders). But the Prophesy never named Harry. Neville could have fit also, but Voldemort didn't think it would be him because Harry was a half blood like himself.

Whoa. I never thought of that but it all makes sense now!! JK Rowling is a genius. Genius isn't even strong enough of a word to describe her....
