    A well written comedy piece about Sirius and Remus having to register Harry for Hogwarts. The concept its a lttle silly, but the author manages to sell it with a bit of history, Sirius and Remus wax nostalgic about harrassing the parents booking the students as some kind of well worn tradition.

    Its a bit silly and at points I found the characters failing to land for me, but in the stories defence, it was written pre OOTP. I'm calling it a strong 3/5.

    Edit: ach, Piss. I inputed the title wrong. Sorry, I cant seen to change it.

    I like it. It’s a nice, somewhat clumsily-written one-shot with personality. A slice in the life type of story. 4/5 for good writing and making me smile.

    It's not much special but it's entertaining enough, has some fun character beats and a decent punchline. I don't require much more from my short stories. 3/5

    That was quite fun.

    It's the only way I can really describe it, but its certainly more fun and charming than the two one shots that are sitting in for review. So I guess its 4/5

    4/5. I laughed at the beginning and the end. I wanted to learn more about Dobby's card sharking, so that's a good point for it.
