A meeting with death looks somehow clumsy. Too simple, poor and cheap. What is received for free, without complexity, is not valued. And here is not just a strange rebirth, but a meeting with Death itself. And it was presented as if he had treated a beggar, humiliatingly.

Fascinating how many authors think Umbridge is a weak witch. Well, it's their story, they can do with the characters whatever they want, but canon Umbridge was able to cast, and keep up for hours, a patronus during her mudblood trials. It is said that many adults can't even cast one for a short time.

Changing the MCs name is one of the worst mistakes people make. It's called fanfiction for a reason. The best way I've seen people do what you're trying to accomplish is to change his name to Hydrus as how other people refer to him, but POV descriptions should still refer to Harry. People are fans of and care about Harry. They don't give a shit about Hydrus. In effect you just turned the fic into an OC helps young Harry vs Harry goes back in time to raise himself.
Especially grating was changing his name before he even went back in time. I'm not a big fan of OCs as the main character and that killed my interest in the fic.

hun? How does that work? He want to save his parents, but he is going to go back 1 month after his parents died.. They were killed in 31, July. And he is going back in 1, September...

You really should have just done something from the start that said he wasn't able to go back earlier than Voldemort marking him. It would have been contrived but this much more contrived and made him look like a bumbling idiot. To get where you wanted you had to make him do one stupid thing after another.

how Harry can be friends with that shrill harpy, ill never figure out. if I have to constantly be careful what I say and how I say it to a friend, then they aren't my friend. Hermione seems like she'll never see him as anything different than that 11 year old that didn't know anything.

I tried this, but nah... Harry is a bit too muggle in this one. Why didn't he buy magical house in a magical property
