Slytherin for Harry and Hermione? This is going to be VERY interesting!

If you don't cut Malfoy head off in this story...you best not be one of those writer's who lets characters cross a very dark line, that early, and not cause them any pain or suffering later. Swear to God.

This is one of the best stories (so far) that I've read in a long time. I put this up with Harry Crow by RobSt. (my favorite). Keep up the great work. Not only is this original, but there are no glaring grammatical errors to stop the flow. I may be up all night reading this!

Barely into the story and already I love it! I've not read another story where Hermione is Slytherin with Harry. Good read so far. Thanks!

It's a bad plot device, a stupid plot device, and it's a plot device you shouldn't have used. You knew better and did it anyway. I think you know why I consider the story no longer worth reading at this point.

I kind of hate it when a story is all "oh, poor Ginny, it's not at all her fault, she couldn't possibly have done anything." Yeah, there IS something she could have done and SHOULD have done, if she were even the slightest bit more responsible: she could have gone to seek help the moment she realized for the first time that she had strange gaps in her memory and couldn't remember what she was doing at times, because that kind of thing *is not normal*. Even a particularly stupid 11-year-old girl should've been able to figure that out, but she was just too busy pitying herself.

God, how is anyone supposed to take this seriously? Ginny Weasley, one of the most pathetic characters in the entire series, out-smugged young Voldemort and ate him somehow? This is frankly almost enough to make me stop reading this story just because of how utterly idiotic the entire idea is.

Oh my God, Gilderoy Lockhard is Blaise Zabini's father? What on Earth were you thinking? lol

Honestly, I think people's biggest problem (and yes, that includes you, sorry) is that they confuse a character they dislike for one that is badly written. Ron Weasley is not badly written. He is probably the most REALISTICALLY written teenager in the entire Harry Potter series, but because teenagers as a group are selfish and thoughtless (don't lie, you know we were) this makes people dislike him, although he's at worst only a bit more stupid and insecure than the average.
There would be a lot fewer badly-written stories in this fandom if people could just get over themselves and admit to that.

Wow. This story has MAZING potential but is sadly wasted by FORCING canon events even if not required (to be fair thats 95% of fanfics), but worse so characters both act in a childsh and grown up fashion in the same time:
Firstly if you expect romance you can go away, kids suddenly turn into adults when talking about feelings and there is only quite cynical logic between them when any "whiff of romance" appears, at the same time they act childish when tropes come into play.
Secondly if you expect Slytherin Harry to be even mildly "evil" or even morally grey, turn away, this is Harry who is basically Dumbledore squared. If you are the type to bo for Dumbledore bashing fics then you best RUN away cos this Harry acts like a bash-fic-dumbledore. As in he is LAWFUL GOOD to an extreme that essentialy makes him a HARDCORE Nazi (honestly it's kinda funny cos they aim to overturn the "evil" of Slytherin with their "good" but its the YOU MUST BE GOOD NO OTHER CHOICES AVAILABLE TO YOU FREE WILL IS AN ERROR kind of way). Best proof is when he finds out about house elves, of course the situation of half-elves has been changed in this story to suit the nazi narrative more (author made it so elves are brainwashed) but the problem is that reading the author basically FORCE creatures that are happy as they are into change so they can be happy is... uh... well its the morality you would expect from a VERY misinformed child.
Generally idea of the fanfic is great, the very few plot changes are mostly good but sadly the execution is incredibly poor and the author himself is clearly VERY young and misunderstand MANY things thus making this story and it's extremally OOC characters very... distasteful. Extremaly distasteful in fact. Basically they all act like in bash-fics but they still remain our "heroes" and the author tries to force his silly beliefs on the reader very forcefully (noy unlike Harry on the elves).

I’m enjoying the author’s notes explaining your writing/thinking process. Ginny absorbing Tom’s magic and knowledge should make an interesting story.

Loving this direction! Eep!

Thank you for the story! I loved it!
I for one definitely did not want Severus to die!

This is an excellent story and hte second time I'm reading it. I only find it hard to believe that, even as good as Snape is at potions, that he'd be able to slip one to a master alchemist like Dumbledore.
