Love this story! It's rare to find a good short oneshot for the Dresdenverse. Hope you make more.
MarbleGlove chapter 1 . 2/19/2010
Fabulous. I love this explanation for how they meet. And I'd definitely be interested in seeing them meet the next morning.

Gored by a unicorn? If only Murphy knew!

What happens next?
Dark Archer chapter 1 . 12/17/2009
more please. I love how you intoduced the first time murphy contacted Harry:) Now all you need is a pre-series story about what happens next, please. I want to know:)
Kazuki Landen chapter 1 . 8/16/2009
Oh, I liked that. Hope you're going to write more pre-book fanfics, there aren't enough out there and your work is excellent :)

Musafreen chapter 1 . 5/3/2009
That was nice. The only discrepancy I could find was Murphy not being a bit more irritated with Harry. Tolerance doesn't seem to be high on her list when murder's involved.
Blueninja33 chapter 1 . 3/10/2009
Hahaha! Great Harry Murphy fic! Any chance that you'd continue this? I think this would make a great little pre-storm front fic. Keep up the good work!
fearlessgoddess2 chapter 1 . 2/12/2009
Very sweet! Loved the interaction with sleepy!Dresden. So cute!
Phil Boswell chapter 1 . 2/12/2009
So what happens next? You tweak our curiosity with the strange symbols and stuff, then bail just as we're about to get into the proper action.

As a nice little vignette of "why Murphy ever called Dresden" this is nice, but it begs to be continued.
Vevusio chapter 1 . 12/31/2008
very well written, the narrating of this story matches its big brother

if some place id read about butcher releasing a dresden files kinda how-it-all-began book presenting this as an excerpt i would believe it - almost

one thing that bothers me about the text is not related with the writing itself but murphy's character

in the first few books before she and harry become close friends she regards him as a tool; she neither likes nor dislikes him, but he gets the job done which is why she uses him

so, after being so bloody frustrated about the murders and not knowing him at all she seems to be very lighthearted all of a sudden when he makes his few jokes

too many smiles and giggles etc for a frustrated and pissed of murphy (who doesnt even know harry yet)

the laughs would have been ok if you had brought in a kind of feeling conveying the impression that murphy is so stressed out and desperate that the mere fact that she resorts to calling some possible lunatic seems funny to her in some way

so anyway, thats out of character for murphy; i know thats quite a bit of criticism on some laughing there but i figure its more important to point out the bad things rather then the good ones :)

one more thing: that meeting harry under a bridge cleaving a troll in two thing was really nice

maybe you could bring that back if you continue with the story, it would certainly have a dresden-feeling to it if he suddenly shows up chopping something to pieces

nice. I like the idea of Dresden's first case w/ the SI.
