    Get There From Here

    Get There From Here by La Onza

    Summary: From parents who had attended Hogwarts in their day, such a brief, vague, yet unambiguous letter advising the school not to expect their child in September – that was a poser. Oneshot, 1,046 Words.

    Why You Should Care: Firstly, the idea of little!Remus writing to McGonagall and asking not to go to Hogwarts is adorable. Secondly, because the characterisation of McGonagall is spot-on: La Onza really shows her humanity, without casting doubt on what we see in the books. And finally because this fic has the wondrous ability to capture each character’s register without any effort and I love that.

    Why You Might Not Care: The ending of this fic kills me. The last line, after a fic that is fabulous, sucks. It’s cliched and overly romantic and ugh. I hate it. But otherwise there’s not much here to offend.

      I love it. Is there a sequel, do you know?

      I really, really liked it, and to be honest, the last line didn’t bother me all too much.
