    Bound

    Bound by Alchemine

    Summary: Young Alastor’s temper leads to trouble on his first night at Hogwarts. Oneshot, 2,300 Words.

    Why You Should Care: For its interesting take on a young Alastor Moody, mostly, and because Alchemine does such an excellent job showing us an awful lot about young Moody while resisting the temptation to tell us too much.  She paints a portrait, and we make the transformation from her young Moody to the older Moody JKR gives us.  It’s also interesting to see the ways wizards handled Muggle-borns in earlier decades, and the idea that there were perhaps a few who were taken to the school against their will is intriguing.

    Why You Might Not Care: The only reason I can think of is that it’s focused on Alastor Moody, which isn’t much of reason.

      It kinda irritates me that’s there’s a Headmistress — I’d think Dippet would have been Headmaster when Moody was at school, if not Dumbledore. Minor nitpick, though.
