Hi! This fic was actually on my TBR labeled as "the fluffy fic that'll probably make you cry and grin and a loser"... and my expectations were completely met and even surpassed. This was so freaking adorable. I completely absolutely 100% agree with you that Harry would treat his kid like this and not like the neglectful jerk he was in CC--especially because of how he was treated by the Dursleys.

So many things to love about this fic. Harry's resignation over Albus's traitorous love for the Cannons. Fierce Rose--I think this portrayal of her as protective and love is much more true to her nature than what was portrayed in CC. Albus's tiny fists (I LOVE BABIES ❤️). Harry being proud of Albus's natural seeking ability. The front row seats. Gosh, everything about it was so sweet and loving.

The entire time I was imagining James doing something similar for Harry and crying a little (okay a lot). I loved that you focused on Harry's love for his son and his desire to make his son feel loved and never neglected--absolutely in character.

The only thing I didn't like about this was that it was so short! I wanted more fluffy sweetness haha!

Review #3, by MuggleMaybe The First Quidditch Game

Hi Paula, lovely! I am here bailing Shaza out for CTF, and of course also because you're amazing.

This story is ADORABLE. Which is hardly surprising because Paula fluff is basically guaranteed to be adorable. But still. The adorableness is extra noteworthy this time.

I have to admit, you stretched my suspension of disbelief with the idea that Albus got to be this old before going to a Quidditch match with the family. Like, SO MANY people in his life dripped the quaffle on that! (geddit, geddit?) However, it works, because the characters share my disbelief. So well done there.

I LOVE that you say he isn't too big for cuddles. (I mean, honestly, no one is too big for cuddles!) But there is definitely an age when kids think snuggling is "for babies" and it's nice to have him young enough here that he still has that sweet affection.

Harry definitely likes to spoil his boy. Which is, in my opinion, a FAR more believable scenario than the one painted in cc. Hearty agreement with you on that note.

I find it interesting that you make Harry a Puddlemere fan, because I often see him written as a Cannons fan as a sort of tribute to Ron? Like, in Next Gen the Cannons are the best team and all the Weasleys and Potters cheer them on, etc, etc. I think it's nice to have Harry maintain an independent streak in which team he favors. And to keep the Cannons lowly and Ron faithful - he may be part of the Golden Trio but he still remembers his roots, you know? But that's getting of topic, whoops.

More importantly, poor Harry - his kid picks the wrong team! hahaha! But I love that he accepts it and loves watching Albus enjoy his experience, regardless of whether they see the teams in the same light.

As always, a lovely read!
xoxo Renee

Review #4, by Ron 4 Hermione The First Quidditch Game

4th April 2017:
Hey there, here for CTF!

I thought this sounded like a cute little one-shot of Harry and Albus, and I was right, this is adorable. You portray Harry as an amazing father, and itís so nice to read. From how he enjoys cuddles of Albus and being happy that heís totally going to be a seeker, to indulging him in seats that will give him the best view. Itís so cute, and yeah, I agree with Ginny, by age six he should have definitely been to a game haha.

Lol, I love Ronís subtle influence here, go Cannons! I must admit I was hoping for a bit of fanfiction artistic licence and to have them win but I suppose Fan Fiction can only go so far haha. I did like how even though they lost ALbus was still so cheery and singing the songs heíd learnt, at six he was probably just thrilled to see them play and might not have understood what happened.

This is such an amazing one shot, Albus is so funny. I can imagine how much of a mess he is, and how displeased Ginny clearly is because she's probably going to be the one to clean him up. Woops, I wouldnít want to be Harry right now.

This was a lovely little one-shot that showed just how cute Albus and Harry are, although your COMMENT AT THE BOTTOM! I havenít read CC, going to see it on Sunday, and now Iím a little scared D:

-Shaza :)
