[Hullo Hagrid, That bloody hell-hound tried to eat me! When you gonna do somethin' 'bout him?] *snert* I love your inclusion of the trolls and an entire language for them. I also love how Hagrid speaks troll.

I also like the attention to detail of having Fluffy only eat enough for one stomach.

[it became clear the huge Cerberian Mastiff was using his tongues far more extensively than he was his teeth.] Nice phrasing here rather than saying Fang was licking/slobbering/drooling etc. all over Hagrid.

[old lullaby his dad had whistled to him when, as a tyke] Awww, very sweet. It's enough of a glimpse into Hagrid's past to give us an emotional connection to him, yet you don't make the moment turn all soppy and heart-wrenching.

Great premise for a story! There aren't enough Hagrid stories out there and you do a beautiful job with him. I hate it when authors turn Hagrid into this bumbling, drunk buffoon. He's loyal and hard working and realy good with animals and you really show that in this piece.

Well done! I like the interaction between Dumbledore and Hagrid. That rings true, to me. You've also done a nice job showing Hagrid interacting with both the troll and with Fluffy.

LOL! I love the schlurping. And the conversation with the troll was great. Good pickup with the Thestrals comment.

[indulgent voice] Niiiiice puppy! [/iv]

I enjoyed this missing moment from PS. Cerberian Mastiff is a perfect name for Fluffy's breed and it never occured to me you'd made it up. Likewise I thought Gra-el-moak was a good forest troll name. Great job and thanks for sharing it with us :)
