A one-shot piece based on the fanfic "Betrayed," by Kateydidnt...
(#) DMitchell1985 2005-07-20 05:24:11 AMThe fact that Hedwig can see the truth, when witches and wizards cannot certainly isn't anything for the wizarding world to brag about. The fact that they continue to willing accept any guilty party is a telling echo of our own world.
You did an excellent job with Hedwig's POV. If you ever decide to write about her adventures after she left, like the other owls she met or the things she saw, I'll be sure to stop by for a read.
- Very original idea. I like it. It'd be interesting if you extended this idea and explore more aspects of an owl's life in the wizarding world; the only weakness of this story was that it doesn't make much of a difference that it's Hedwig narrating and not, say, Ron (not that he'd be likely to leave droppings in Dumbledore's hair ...).
