I loved this, it's nice to read a fic from the point of view of a muggle who has discovered the existence of magic and is not repulsed by it, makes the rest of us muggles freel a little better about outselves, we're not all narrow minded prats like the Dursleys after all. I like all the small details too, how he pieced everything together, how he looked up directions on the internet, how going to the headmaster hadn't been a good idea, how Estela blew up the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe because it was too difficult, good job he didn't lend her lord of the Ringss. Anyway, I'm going to add this to my favourites, I hope your Gran is proud, I wish i could write like this.
Oh, do please continue! I love this story, although you'll have to come up with something to keep Mr. White and Estela in touch. Perhaps he could try to adopt her? It's such a sweet story and has a feel of realness to it. I like your style; it is reminiscent of actual published books I have read. Can't think of which ones, but it's too nice, sweet, innocent, and convincing to give up on. Pretty please? With sugar on top?
Author's Response: Thank you! I've had a very rotten day today because of a very bad essay grade, so reading this made me smile :-) It means a lot, what you're saying. I'm afraid it is only a one-shot, though I do have two WIP if you'd like to read them. Sorry about this.
I found this story very intersting. Poor little estela bouncing from foster home to foster home and not knowing what to think of these strange new powers happening to her. I hope that you can find the time to write more chapters! I'm also hoping that Mr. White will adopt her but i guess i will just have to wait and see what happens because its your story!
this is great! i love the whole muggle POV of it! superb!
You're one of my favorite authors and I was very excited when I read the note about your new fic.
It really is very well-written, however, there are a few little errors, such as:
a) There has only been one suspicious incidents
- it's singular, is it not?
b) (Mr Wellton — the chauvanist!)
- should be *chauvinist
Don't let this sadden you! The story was wonderful and I adored it.
Your faithful reader,
Wow--this is a great story! You've got to wonder about those kind of kids in the wizarding world who don't grow up with the best situation and don't really know their care takers that well-- who would they confide in? I love the teacher, he's perfect and I wish that I had him!
great great great. write more about Estela (and Mr White!) please!!!
and on another note, I am going thru a phase right now where I am supremely irritated with public schools and your comments about the beaurocracy were welcomed and appreciated. misery loves company.
I really enjoyed this. It's a great perspective to tell a story from - I'd love to read more!
