Oh, my! I read ATBLU and then LAP in one sitting today - I couldn't stop ! Words defy my ability to articulate how much I have been enjoying this. I truly do hope to see that ATBLU sequel as well as, perhaps, more of LAP? The way you convey the visceral emotional subcontext of each scene is rather masterful - a difficult skill to acquire to begin with, for most, much less at this level! Remarkably enjoyable tales for both! I will post this review to both stories.

That was really good and really different. I've been reading in the HP fandom since 2002, and I've never seen anything like this idea - it's incredibly original. And I love it as well.
I'm also a huge fan of your style of writing - it was smooth and well paced the entire way through.
If you DO continue this one, I'll definitely be reading.

You portray Dumbles just right (something a lot of people struggle with, imo). I would love to read more of this, if you ever get the time and motivation!
| Severitus22 chapter 4 . 11/2/2014
Well, I will say that I did very much enjoy this. I definitely think you should continue with it. And I will certainly check out some of your other fics.

I love this and will wait as long as needed for it to be continued
| Saint Snape chapter 4 . 10/23/2014
This is really good. I would love to read more if you decide to continue it. I think now that Severus knows that Harry isn't the coddled celebratory in his relatives' home he will change his tune. I always love stories that show a progression from hatred to either love, friendship or acceptance between the two.

This is soooo good! I can't wait for the next update!

I really hope that you continue with it. :) I really like your premise you have for this story. :)

Your story is really great so far. I hope you keep writing, you're really good at it.

A very tidy little introduction and it does work on its own I suppose.
I glanced at the comments and had to laugh at the one saying why not just lobotomize Vernon - yes, I've had similar thoughts in the past but more murderous, if the Dursleys are a problem Snape for one probably wouldn't have too much trouble removing their ability to be a problem. But for story purposes you have to assume that something prevents these things. Vernon, of course, is not even a blood relative so his existence is presumably hanging on whatever is protecting muggles in general from malicious wizards.

Excellent chapter . Thank you .

| Man of Constant Sorrow chapter 4 . 6/14/2014
I quite liked this story, but I will say that there is one thing that bugged me. We all know there are mood altering/behavior modifying spells and potions in the wizarding world, why does Dumbledore simply "correct" Vernon's behavior and attitude with them.
Just lobotomize him with magic
Thanks so much for sharing, I eagerly await your next. favorited

Typically, I find stories involving abusive Dursleys very contrived and hard to believe, but this is a happy outlier. I'm eager to see where you take this!
