The transfer of a review! :D
I am so super glad you liked this so much! I had so much fun writing Teddy and I'm super looking forward to including him in future fics. I look at his parents and I just can't see him being such a sad sap all the time. And of course he's in Hufflepuff. Not only is it canon, but he takes after his Mum. ^_^
FreddIE may have been raised my George, but I think he takes after his Mum, too. I imagine Angelina to be rather no-nonsense when it needs to be done- part of what keeps George grounded.
Are you kidding? I need all the luck you can give! Do you know who I'm up against? You and Rose, for starters! X.x
Thanks for stopping by, darling. I'll try to get an update in soon!
Greetings, I am the Crumple-Horned Snorkack! I have momentarily left my hibernation in the boreal forest of Sweden and came upon this fantastic fanfiction!
And what a sweet story. I particularly liked all Teddy said about his parents, and why he lives so in the moment because his parents didn't get to live that long, and how what he loves the most is making people happy. That's such a wonderful philosophy. And it seems like the other students of Hogwarts really love him as a result of his noticing and including everyone. He seems like he's good at noticing. A noticer. In fact, it makes me wonder if he would notice the population of Crumple-Horned Snorkacks if he ever went to Sweden. I'll have to improve my stealth and hiding skills if there are any noticers like him around, because otherwise he might come back with photographic evidence of us.
Funny thing, then, that it took him that long to notice his own feelings for Freddie(/Freddy/Fred), and to notice that Freddie had feelings for him as well! It's wonderful that he figured it out. But it's so realistic of humans, that he would be so good at noticing the whole of the Hogwarts population and make them feel important, only to unintentionally miss that a person very important to him didn't feel noticed.
I liked that the 'never just hello' theme repeated back at the end - a great way to bring it back full circle, and such a sweet end to the story. It's lovely to know that these two adorable humans found each other and that everything turned out all right for them.
This was a lovely read, but now I'm off to meet the Yeti for our customary Thursday brunch. Cheerio!
I am honestly not sure how to respond to a review like this. I feel like I should be reviewing you. Wonderfully put together and rather entertaining and I would like to go to Sweden to see if I might notice you. But, I shall give you fair warning if Teddy happens to venture out that way. Mayhap I'll write a fic about it.
I'm glad you enjoyed my story. Come back for something else if you should fancy to do so! I hope you had a lovely brunch.
