venturous1 prompted me with Hagrid: childhood, favorite, changeling.

Broken Boundaries (G; Hagrid, implied creatures; 130 words): Fatherhood is frustrating.

Hagrid once believed, when he was quite small—well, much younger, anyway—that he was a changeling; he didn't understand how he could be so much bigger than the other children his age. It was only when he grew taller than his father that he learned the truth about his mother. His size had made things challenging for his dad because, even though Hagrid had been a relatively well-behaved child, when he was naughty, his father couldn't punish him in a traditional manner.

He used to hide my toys in places I couldn't squeeze into until I apologised, Hagrid thinks, staring at the ruined pen. Pity that won't work on you.

He doesn't really expect an apology from the Blast-Ended Skrewts, but he does wish they'd be more respectful of his boundaries.

Awww, Hagrid would have been such a sweet (though probably also a horribly indulgent) father! Anyway, the Skrewts are definitely something only a parent could love. What a nice glimpse you give us into Hagrid here.
