Oh, this was a really lovely look at Grawp! I don't think I've ever read a fic about him before, and I really think you captured him perfectly.

One of my favorite things about this story was the way I felt like you captured Grawp's thoughts - his frame of mind. He was clearly a pretty simple creature, like most giants, and you did an amazing job at portraying that. It was obvious in his stilted, awkward attempt to talk to the bird, and in his memories of all of his prior experiences with birds, and in his ability to distinguish between past birds and this one, even if he couldn't really articulate why this bird is different and beautiful and something that he wants to keep around.

I also loved the idea of Fawkes singling Grawp out to heal, out of everyone hurt in the battle. I think it's because in Grawp, Fawkes saw a little bit of a kindred spirit - some secluded and reclusive and not well-understand.

This was beautiful.

House Cup 2014 Review - Ravenclaw

Author's Response: Hey there Branwen! :D Yes, there are a sad lack of Grawp fics on the archive. :P

Oh, I'm so glad that you think I captured him well because I was nervous that he would come across as *too* smart for the way he was portrayed in the books, if you know what I mean. He is pretty simple, but at the same time he's definitely sentient, and he had thoughts and feelings, so all I could do was write and hope that I got it down okay. :P

I'm glad that you liked it! I was hoping that the interaction would go down alright and it would be realistic/sweet, and yes, you definitely have it spot on there with Fawkes, I think.

Thank you so much for the lovely review, Branwen! ♥
