Hello!

I am here for the third task of 12 Days of Reviewing!

The contrast between Hagrid's size and baby Harry's size must have been startling! I also enjoyed how you began this, by stating, "the boy who lived was extremely tiny for such an important name." I think this is fantastic because of the impact it has. Harry defeated Voldemort, the first time, as a baby! That's definitely a feat. Also, it reminds me of Bellatrix Lestrange's mocking words in Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix, p. 782 by Rowling (of course): "The little baby woke up fwightened and fort what it dweamed was twoo!" It seemed, no matter how much he grew up from this point, he would always be looked at as a small child.

Moving on, I think that Hagrid's desire to be smaller reveals some very human qualities about him. At least he fit on the motorbike. I also find Hagrid's need to complete this mission for Dumbledore-to deliver baby Harry safely-an extremely endearing quality. Hagrid, by the characteristics defined by Rowling, is truly a caring, loveable character. I think that you've done him justice here.

The flashback to Hagrid being blamed for opening the Chamber of Secrets was heartbreaking! Poor Hagrid! It seems like the best of people always end up in the worst of situations. Well, it does make for a good story at any rate. It also causes connections with the reader as we (the readers) are feeling for the character.

Hagrid's brief thoughts on the dog-star felt like a bit of jabbing irony. It reminded me that, this night, Sirius was wrongly accused of James and Lily's murder and sentence to serve out the remainder of this life in Azkaban! Though it is not mentioned in the story, I feel as if the irony seeps through and I found this very interesting.

Furthermore, what Hagrid does think about (involving the dog-star) was very touching. I think that Fang's introduction was fantastic. Hagrid deserves a companion, and dogs (or krups, I suppose) DO make fantastic companions!

I thought that this was very touching, revealing some of Hagrid's best qualities. Hagrid doesn't often get the spotlight, so I think that it is awesome that you gave him some recognition!
