i had to read this because I just love Hagrid, and you don't see many fics about him. I had never thought of him having a girlfriend while he was in school.
I can well imagine Hagrid still loving someone forty years later. I'm glad you don't actually show them really getting together, because I think that would be a little OOC for Hagrid. I can't seem him breaking up someone's marriage. The way you leave it, it has not gotten to that point yet, so people can think what seems most likely to them. Good choice with that.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I appreciate the kind words.
Yay - happy ending!! I was waiting with bated breath for you to do (the other part of) this story. Your ability to write dialogue with our lovable half giant left me in awe. Was this meant to be a sequel to your original fic in your lair or are you wanting this to be a completely seperate entity. I know changes were made but when I saw the flashback, I was just making sure.
Nice job my dear! *high fives*
