    That Other Fellow

    That Other Fellow by Sciathan_File

    Summary: “Moreover, now every time he so much as saw that portrait move an eyebrow, he thought it only presaged some new doom.” Oneshot, 3,532 Words.

    Why You Should Care: Not that anyone really needs a reason to read something by Sciathan File except that it was written by Sciathan File, but if you insist…. It’s a stunningly good fic on the minor-est of minor characters, the nameless Other Minister, highlighting his, and by extension the rest of the Muggle world’s, experience in the war they know nothing about. This is one of those stories where I feel JKR’s intent seeping in through every word, and in places Sciathan File echos her style perfectly, too.

    Why You Might Not Care: This tune is played through the eyes of the Muggle Prime Minister, whose HP fan club consists of a motley-looking elderly gentleman eating crisps and wearing a lapel pin. But take heart– gen-ficcers will love this, too.

      I really love this… When I read this fic, I honestly felt the PM’s frustration and exhaustion. I just wanted to scream at the wizarding world for letting innocent muggles get hurt and letting the PM take the blame… Brilliant rec.
