“N is for Neville, who died of ennui.” You know, I’ve never known anyone to actually die of this, no matter how many times someone said they were going to. I’m not even sure that it’s actually possible to do so, although I’m sure anyone who’s ever sat through Professor Binns’ History of Magic class would heartily disagree. I believe the rumor about him at school is that he bored himself to death, although I’m pretty sure he just died of old age…which in the Wizarding world means he was probably 300-and-something at the time. Hey, Dumbledore was about 156 or 157 when he died, and as a student at Hogwarts he regularly wrote to Bathilda Bagshot, who had already written A History of Magic, which means when Voldemort killed her, she was well over 200 herself, and probably closer to 300, if not even older than that. And let’s not forget the Flamels, although they had the help of a Philosopher’s Stone; they were both over 600 when they decided to quit using the Elixir of Life and let nature take its course.
