Title: Sympathetic Properties Author: Mr Norrell Rating: T Genre: Drama/Humor Status: WIP Library Category: Humor Pairings: Harry/Hermione Summary: Having been treated as a servant his entire life, what would have happened if Harry had been more sympathetic when Dobby came to call? (Character-centered drama with bits of humor on the side.) Words: 123,101 Link: FanFiction.Net It's an enjoyable fic so far, mostly because of the characterization. Every scene feels like it adds to the character and fits them no matter how minor the character. There are a few bad points. There's a Gringott's trip. It's a bit more original than the usual sort but still annoying. Easily skimmed through, though. The fic is long enough without reading that. Dumbledore is manipulative but there's no Weasley bashing (other than Mrs. Weasley calling Ginny creepy) that usually comes with that. It's frequently updated which is a great bonus for any WIP. The Hermione and Granger family characterization and dynamics are fun to read and unlike any other portrayal I've seen of them.
