Review:Mad Hatter says:
Hello! I'm here because Magravine organised reviews for awesometastical reviewers, and I was really supposed to do this about two weeks ago. Terribly sorry for that! But I'm here now. :D This story actually caught my eye back when it was first published - or was it the banner in the crit section of TDA? I...can't remember. It seemed quite familiar, anyway, so I decided to read this.

And I'm so glad I did! This was absolutely adorable. I love reading about little children (though I don't actually like the real ones...hmm...), and this was perfect. The idea of Teddy being disgusted (especially when she licked her lips) was just hilarious, and how he respected his uncle for kissing his aunt TWICE. I mean, that takes some pretty manly courage. You got all the characterisations spot on, and I could hear it all in my head perfectly.

I don't read much on HPFF but this makes me think I should - I never would have bothered reading it simply because I didn't know how you were as an author (needless to say, I think you're pretty much the best thing since the zoombinis). It was an adorable oneshot, and I plan on reading some of your other work soon. :D The whole idea was so sweet, and the way it was carried out was absolute perfection.

Hugs, heart emotes and a cookie for you!

Author's Response: I wasn't aware of anything that Magravine had organised and I'm a bit confused as to what it IS that she actually organised, haha... but, hey, I'll take a review! Especially a lovely one like this..
I'm not sure if the banner for this was in the critique section of TDA - my sole purpose on that website is to oggle pretty pictures and shamelessly ask people to make me shiny stuff. Glad that the banner caught your eye! I've always wondered how much a banner really does for a story. This one is exceptionally cute, though. All credit goes to black bird, however!

You don't like children that much? I can certainly understand. But I absolutely adore them. Spend some more time with little children and try and see the way they view the world and you might be surprised. Some of the things are just so insightful and clever. They can really leave you astounded at times. So much can be learnt from them. And then, of course, there are the things they say and do that leave you staring after them, trying to understand what planet they come from.

I loved adding in the little things in this! Like how five-year-old Teddy is a man. And the licking of the lips. It's nice that they were so well appreciated!

I hope that you do read more HPFF! There is some ridiculously good writing on this archive, you just have to dig around to find it. I'm glad that I can somehow help you along the way to what I can assure you will be a very addictive journey into the land of HPFF. Ha.

This is a departure from the other things I have posted on the archive so I hope you don't expect a series of one-shots about small children. I would love to do that but, sadly, my other two fics are much more emotionally charged than this. Sigh. I miss the innocence of children. Perhaps that is why I wrote this. Who knows!

Thank you for your review, and I got a cookie in the process! You're awesome.
