I absolutely love this story. When I first saw the title I was absolutely sure I was not going to like it. You have the best Dobby that I have ever seen portrayed and I am happy that you don't try and make everyone perfect. The flaws are what make the character. Thanks for the quick update.
I'm glad you're enjoying the show.
I agree, the title wasn't the best choice, but at the time, it was the working title, and i got lazy, so I kept it.
Dobby: One of my favorite characters. Unfortunately, too many people write him with a 'Brooklyn Wise-guy' speech pattern. I carefully reread the books and discovered that other than referring to himself in the third person and adding a few qualifiers, his English is better than mine. In this case, I have him with a 'punishment induced' speech impediment, which is why some of the other elves speak more clearly.
I also despise perfect characters. Mary-Sue's have no place in fanfiction! If a character is perfect, there's no room for improvement and like you said, it's the flaws that make the characters interesting.
The next update is already mostly written so I -should- be able to update by this weekend.
