    The Birthday Boy

    The Birthday Boy by Lady Bracknell

    Summary: On his seventeenth birthday, Teddy Lupin is forced to face a message from beyond the grave, and a cake with his face on it. It was enough to make anyone hide at the bottom of the garden. Oneshot, 4,482 Words.

    Why You Should Care: Another Lady Bracknell fic. Really, I probably should stop reccing her at some point, but she just has this impossible plethora of fantastic stories and I can’t help myself. This is mostly about Teddy, and a little about Harry, and a lot about the similarities between the two, which is just as JKR intended. Harry knows more about what it’s like to be Teddy than perhaps Teddy realizes, and it’s easy to see why these two characters would connect without trying. Lovely.

    Why You Might Not Care: Another Lady Bracknell fic. So, while I can’t really think of a good reason, it’s possible y’all are just sick of being pointed at the same person. Ah well.

    Note: So late today do to chaos of the “my internet isn’t working” fashion. In the end, I walked to a friend’s house and used his internet for fear of missing a day (horrors!). Let’s just say, this is not a good day for this to have happened…. *sigh*

      I found this fic a bit trite. It seemed to go out of it’s way to say that everyone had hovered around trying to make sure that Teddy felt loved and that his situation was better than Harry had growing up with the Dursley’s. And, I found the idea of the letter especially trite. It could be though that I just like Sam Vimes Teddy story and My Father by Wuff more. Wuff’s writing isn’t as polished yet as Sam Vimes or Lady Bracknell but she had a very perceptive take on what it was like growing up for Teddy.
