This is a very tragic story - such an awesome and original pairing as well - lots of kudos for the awesome pairing.
It was very sweet, and you wrote it very innocently at the beginning, before turning to a more grief-stricken style of writing. I found this one shot very emotional actually, both for sadness and anger at the injustice of Hagrid's childhood.
I love the way you describe how Hagrid reacts to the shock - it's very realistic and believable. I thought it was also really clever when you said that Myrtle had been taken in life and death - very inventive. The structure of the lines is brilliant, too - neat sizes of Hagrid's thoughts - it made the story flow really well.
Overall, a super duper one shot that combined fear, anger, grief and happiness in one smooth awesome one shot :)Author's Response: I've always wondered about what the relationship that Hagrid and Myrtle had back then since they were in school together. I decided in this piece that they should be friends, boarding something more. I really want to do another piece where you can see them a few years later. Myrtle has to know who people say killed her and I would be interested to see the two of the interact with him as the grounds keeper.
I'm glad that you enjoyed this piece and thank you for taking the time to review it! Report Review
Here you go, a review, finally...
I liked it originally but I have to admit it is way better now. So much more detail to it, and I love the way you further explored their background together. Still a really harsh ending though, poor Hagrid.
I still think there is more room to develop this, even as a single chapter story. And there are a handful of teeny tiny errors I noticed because I'm pedantic. But otherwise this is one excellent piece of work. Nice stuff.
I look forward to more soon. Like really soon. Seriously, you should be writing now. Stop reading and get writing ;P
TyrannicFeenixAuthor's Response: I think I'm going to need you to start Beta-ing my stories for me! I would love more feedback on where you think this can expand to. I'm glad that you enjoyed it! Report Review
Oh I enjoyed this! I had never really thought about Hagrid with anyone really other than what the books tell us but now that I have read this piece, I think that these two would have been so cute together. They were both misfits of sorts and of course they can always make the best couples sometimes. I thought it was rather sad that he loves her but yet he was the one being blamed for her death. I really didn't notice anything that needed to be improved upong though I do hope that you decide to make this longer as I really did enjoy this and I think it would be cute to see what she has to say when he finally admits that he loves her. Great Job!
~Slytherinchica08~Author's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review. Instead of rewriting this piece, I'm going to just expand it. I feel the chapter is just too short. I always imagined them together as at least friends while they were in school together and just expanded on that. Glad that you liked this and thank you for reviewing! Report Review
Wow, that is a great start. Puts a new spin on things and I quite like it. Poor Hagrid, not only framed for something he didn't do; but also lost a dear friend in Riddle's lust for greatness. This is just so truly well written and I cannot wait to read more.
TyrannicFeenixAuthor's Response: I'm so glad that you enjoyed it! Sadly the rewrite is taken longer than expected and causing me some issues, but I WILL GET IT DONE AND POSTED! I promise. :) Thank you so much for the review. Report Review
Hi there! This was a really nice one shot :) I liked that it was from Hagrid's perspective. It was new and different, but I think you captured him really well. He is sweet and loyal, and I do think that this could be his reaction to being framed for her death. And the last line, that was adorable. It added a whole new persepctive to the story and I almost wish there was more.
Just one typo I caught: "Her body lie there dead" That should be laid there dead ;)
Honestly, I think this was really sweet, well written, and a great moment that not a lot of people think about. Nice job!

You've reviewed both of my stories and I thought I'd come and leave you a review!
Firstly, you've picked a great pairing to write - I've never seen it before and it was intersting because you've paired two people that were socially excluded at Hogwarts.
It was placed in a part of the story, which I would never think to write, but it was brilliant.
Overall - it was pretty concise (not a criticism) and VERY well written.
-accioHPFFAuthor's Response: Thank you so much for the review! It's always good to hear some feedback. :) Still waiting on chapter 2 *wink wink* Report Review
Oh! How interesting! A Myrtle/Hagrid! I'm surprised nobody else thought of this! But, they were in school together, after all! :D
I just wish this were a bit longer, 500 words is so very short! :(Author's Response: Thank you very much. I'm working on expanding it to a short story so there should be more soon. :) Report Review
This is a really interesting pairing, and I'm really surprised no one has thought about it before! It is really interesting, and reading a fic in Hagrid's POV was really cool. I'd love to read something about the later years. Yeah, this was really cool! Loved it! :D
LeanneAuthor's Response: Thank you so much for the lovely review. I'm currently working on expanding the story, especially to include the later years while she is a ghost. Report Review
