    A little late, since Xmas was well over 1 1/2 months ago, but I found this quite cute, and the ending was rather humorous as well.

    Cute story. I wonder if the author would consider turning it into a full-blown story? 4/5

    Cute and quirky. I would also like to see a full story out of this. 4/5

    Cute oneshot; an original twist to the Harry Potter universe that deserves to be read if nothing else. Honestly, the only complaint I can think of was the inclusion of Voldemort: The author could have cut off without dealing them and it would have been just fine, but by introducing them like that he leaves the ending a little more openended than I would prefer. Truly my only complaint was that the part when he was taken in the beginning confused me: Harry was dropped off on Christmas Eve? A large derivation from canon, but considering what some authors have done, easily accepted.

    4/5: original and well written, preserving the elements of canon HP while introducing a radically different aspect to it.

    I read it for the implied Harry/Luna and stayed for the story.

    It's a cute little original one-shot. I thought it was interesting despite the fact it sort of split from canon. I enjoyed the part with Luna Lovegood. The only part I saw that was pointless being put in was the whole part with the Death Eaters though I chuckled at one or two parts in that section.

    With that being said, and for what it is. I give it a 4/5, and definitely think it's worthy of the Library.

    Meh. It was alright. 'Cute' is definitely the most appropriate word. I kept waiting for a bigger punchline, but it never came. The prank on the Death Eaters at the end was too silly to be funny.

    3/5

    Definitely not very humorous. 2.5/5
