This is such a wonderful story. The fact that it's told from a Muggle's point of view makes it so interesting and original compared to a lot of other stories you find on here.
I liked how you didn't come right out and tell us it was Harry that needed help, but your clues led the readers to figure out who Daniel needed to help. The brief allusions to the Marauders were a great addition, too, and I loved the personality you gave Daniel. His kindness and generosity are truly heart-warming.
Great job! =)
I *love* it. This story gave me shivers because it's just the right thing in many different ways. I didn't expect to find it so, either, which makes it extra-special to me.
I love the imagery at the beginning, it's very evocative of the rough Scottish highlands, and I love how you take a step back and get into the mind of a Muggle instead of a wizard. The little hinting touches made me smile - the Marauder juants and the Hogwarts Express - but it was very clever storytelling that Daniel never caught on. The part with Harry is my favorite, and made me go all teary. You can just sense his weariness and fear for the unexplained crisis. I got very attached to Daniel even though this is such a short story, so kudos to you for excellent character development. Thank you for writing this story!
Author's Response: Thank you for the lovely review!! When I got the prompt for this story, I could only really see it being told form a muggle point-of-view. It reminded me of the common complant found throughout the books about how Muggles will go to any lengths to not see magic. Thats what I was trying to portray, so I'm glad you think I did such a good job!! I'm rather attatched to Daniel, he's a sweet little character. I don't have any plans for him at the moment, but he might find his way into another story, so keep your eyes open!!
Oooh... This has the makings of a great story.
that was sweet. And, lovely touches about the Maruaders, it was lovely, and I got shivers while reading this! 10/10!
