    Nicely done! The twist at the end had me laughing out loud. Could be a nice name for the scene "sometimes, it doesn't pay to be patient."

    Anyway, off to read some more of your stories.

    Now that was entertaining. You should definitely do one for the second task. Have him take Gabrielle instead of Ron, and be like "What, I'm a sucker for the damsel in distress."

    The broom arriving after a long time makes a lot of sense. I always see accio used as a combat charm in fan fiction, but it seems like it would be more for convenience and things flying at you really fast are not that convenient.

    Very nice. The last line made the story.

    Another great one-shot from the snark-master.

    Harry never figured he'd have to wait for his broom. I agree, about the Dragons being reptiles, more or less, and if he can speak to one breed, he should be able to speak to them all.

    Ms. Dragon ain't happy and she's getting ready to let the insignificant ones know precisely how irritated she really is.

    The last line was killer! "What?" God on ya!

    Talking to dragons makes a TON of sense they are basically giant serpents with legs and wings (unless your chinese then their just giant serpents with front legs) i've read multiple stories where dragons are the "lords of serpentkind" The Basalisk itself would have a hard time kicking a dragons ass all the dragon has to do is close its eyes they aren't THAT stupid.

    I can't believe I didn't review this when I first read it. Oh well, I loved it, and thought it really funny. Thanks for the light-hearted story.

    I usually do not read one shots but your summary got me. And your little story did the rest. Fantastic writing and funny ending.

    Keep it going! :)
