Great story! Interesting use of the second person.
Lily can understand owls? Will that every be brought up again? I think that's a really interesting idea!

So cool how its from the owls pov. Very clever and you totally made me as excited for that letter as the potters were. Such amazing writing as always :-)

A beautiful story. Well written like always. Your work has been a great source of inspiration. You definitely know how to make your stories come alive. Truly marvelous!

A good little one shot

I love this! I've never read anything from an owl's point of view and how you captured the magic within the owl to know where the letter is sent is absolutely amazing! I love how Lily can read the owl and Ollivander and Thomas's! I guess malfoy manor lead to good partnerships :)

It was an absolutely brilliant Idea to do this little oneshot from the owls POV. So clever. I even looked up remiges and rectices; to have the owl being so certain that James was close by, from those feathers and from his claws to his beak was a brilliant way of telling us how sure he was. I can just imagine the thrill of excitement, like electricity surging through every nerve end.
Loved seeing and hearing from Neville, and I gather Rani must be Parvatti's daughter (or perhaps son)? I can't quite picture Professor Sprout being headmistress material, mainly because I couldn't see her being parted from her greenhouses for any significant length of time. I can just picture her office; one would have to fight their way through the forst of greenery to even get to the desk. What happened to Minerva and Professor Flitwick? And Dawlish would have be able to give the kids first-hand experience of the Unforgivable: Imperius Curse, if nothing else.
Poor James being ensconced in the toilet when his very special delivery arrived was a bit of a bummer! LOL. But Lily's excitement made up for James' absence. And Lily being so atuned to the owl was a lovely little aside. It would seem that Lily might end up being Hagrid's shadow once she gets to Hogwarts. Was that a little forerunner of Lily's leanings when she does get to Hogwarts.
As with all of your worked, I loved this.

When I began reading I thought the letters where OWL exam results, but I like the acceptance letters more. There letters mean as much, if not more, to the parents than the kids. When reading the books I couldn't wait for the characters to grow up. Now, I don't want their kids to grow. Ah, but that's life.
Anyway, I thought writing from the owl's perspective was very creative. Thanks!

Lovely story - and Lily is promising to be an interesting young lady, I hope she gets her owl soon.

Another great one shot. Interesting that Lilly is living up to her middle name and can understand owlish.

Aww, that was sweet. I was completely confused at the start, no idea what was happening, but I caught on quick enough. I love the idea of writing it in the owl's POV.

I love the owl POV as well! Your depictions of normal, and sometimes not so normal, life of the Potters at Drakeshaugh are truly enjoyable and give us a glimpse of Harry that we rarely see. i think he would make a good dad, particularly with Arthur and Bill as role models. Will you ever write a Teddy-centered fic? He is Harry's first "child" and I love stories about their relationship. Your writing, as always, is a joy to behold! Thanks for writing!

I read this over on SIYE but I don't have an account there, so I came here to favorite it. I love Arthur's speech to Ginny, that was so touching, and the owl's perspective really makes it unique.
