Hello! I'm here for Day Three of the Twelve Days of Reviewing over at the forums. :)

I really enjoyed reading this chapter, I love how you characterised Hagrid. I agree with you that Hagrid is quite an underrated character, and you really brought out the best qualities of him in this story, how gentle and caring and kind he was. You wrote his dialogue really well too, i think you captured it perfectly and it had the Hagrid feel to it. ;) Basically, you wrote him absolutely perfectly and really, any other Hagrid is going to have a tough time standing up to this kind of competition!

I really liked how you wrote Hagrid's insecurities here, how he felt like he stood out and how he wished that he was smaller and not so big and bulky, it was really realistic and made me want to smush Hagrid. Another thing I loved was how he so obviously cared for the baby Harry. It's just nice to think that before the Dursleys mistreated him for eleven years there was someone who loved and cared for him and looked forward to meeting him when he was older. :) It's a nice thought.

I really liked how obvious it was that he respected Dumbledore as well, and what he was thinking about Lucius Malfoy made me laugh. :P I guess the grudge between him and Lucius has been lifelong. I think you've written him as being a very caring, loving person, and that's really obvious in the way he regards Harry and Aragog and Fang. :) You've done an amazing job writing him.

I adored reading your flashbacks. Everything flowed so well throughout the story, and the flashbacks were a really good way to get some insight on his past life.

I spotted a couple of typos (you spelt angry as abngry once, I think) but it didn't detract from the quality of the story at all and I really loved this story. :D
