Annie's voice really came through.

So, Annie can see bow-truckles, can she... Hmmm, interesting twist to the saga! Loved the notion of Santa-Hagrid. He is a bit like a giant Father Christmas. Great story, as always. Thanks for writing!

Very very cute

So so so cute. Absolutely loved Annie's voice. We heard some of it in Drakeshaugh but you can never have too much of an adorable little 4 year old. (well, assuming that you don't need to finish something and the 4 year old insists that you acknowledge her. Then you look for the nearest television set and hope they have Disney Chanel.)
I'm assuming this is a one-shot, but I kinda love the idea of a worms-eye-view HP fic told in toddler-talk - everything overheard, witnessed, or imagined and misinterpreted. I'm not sure if I would eventually want to kill myself in very unimaginative ways, or if it would in fact be a masterpiece of toddler characterization.

That was sweet, I love how you wrote Annie's perspective.

I thought this was a darling story, reading about "Santa Hagrid" from Annie's point of view...very sweet! I kinda miss some of that 4 year old vernacular nowadays, since my girls are past that now at 7 & 10. This was quite a fun read! :) Merry Christmas to you & yours!

I thought this was just a one-shot! I'm glad it's not. So, Annie is the magical in the family. I'm just wondering if it's from her dad or her mom. My guess if from her dad, judging from his reaction on your Strangers in Drakes story. But just a hunch :D

Thank you, once again, for a wonderful story. I think one of the reasons I keep coming back is that you are unafraid to write from different perspectives, and that you so obviously have fun doing it. The premise for this story is so wonderful - I wonder (if she ever learns the truth) if she will make the connection with this memory.
So thanks for sharing, and happy holidays.

Oooh that was hilarious! I could just picture my little one telling a similar story - you totally got the toddler inflection right :)

How do you do it, this story completely blew me away! I just love it when you write kids. Kutgw!

Hagrid - half-giant, half walking disaster area where the Statute of Secrecy is concerned! Lovely story and well told from the 4yo pov. Sounded a lot like my lot (I have a 5 and 3 year old).

What a lovely story! Enjoying all your writing so much - hope Santa Hagrid brings you and yours a beautiful Christmas!

This is so cute! I love it, and I think you've got Annie's voice down pat!

My friend you have given us all an early Christmas present. This was wonderful. I can just imagine the conversation Annie had with Raggedy Maggie. I giggled, I smiled and I felt very warm inside. But I'd love to hear how Annie told her parents about her day with the Ginormous Santa. And just how Harry and Ginny explain about Santa coming down the chimney? I can just hear Hagrid say "Sorry bout that" His standard whoops line. Do you have more of this one?
Till your next,

Great.. Are you channeling a little girl? Annie comes across quiet real I've talked to children like her. :)
