Hello! :) I'm here for Day 3 of the 12 Days of Reviewing - I remembered reading the first chapter of your story collection and noticing that the banner was Hagrid so I'm glad I came back to check if you've added a chapter about him- lucky me! :)

You wrote this beautifully. Gah, it just makes me want to find Hagrid and hug him. I always felt like he was such a wonderful, gentle character as you said in the AN and you really wrote him perfectly here and it makes me wish there were more stories like this which focus on what a lovely man Hagrid is.

Something you wrote really well were Hagrid's insecurities, how he laughs about his appearance and smell to himself a little, and how he wished that he could be smaller. I thought that was so heartbreaking even though he had such a great and self-sacrificing attitude, because Hagrid is so special and perfect the way he is, and if he wasn't big then he wouldn't be the same.

I really liked his clear admiration of Dumbledore and how that fit with canon, as well as his obvious love for Harry and how he was already looking forward to Harry being older. The bond between the two of them was always so cute with how Hagrid was the one who brought Harry back into the wizarding world. I enjoyed reading his musings on Harry, like how being the Boy Who Lived was such a large name for little Harry, and how he thought about the scar. You really wrote him as so thoughtful which I thought was spot on.

There was some really beautiful imagery as well here, like when Hagrid was talking about nearly being able to reach the stars. This line: But it was nice to imagine what a star felt like - a sliver of shining moonlight, a crumb of Heaven itself was just delicate and lovely. Hagrid more than anyone deserves to touch the stars. :)

I thought the flashbacks were great as well, and showed how important creatures were as friends. The memory of Riddle catching him and how that lead to him being ostracized from the Hogwarts community would be very traumatizing I imagine, and so would finding Fang. I loved the little story and how it showed how warm and kind Hagrid is.

I loved reading this- thank you for writing it! :D
