"Mr. Potter, there couldn't possibly be anything urgent enough that you had to see the Headmaster about."
No wonder Harry got tired of telling adults when he had problems and asking for their help. In McGonagall's spot, I should think the fact that a handful of firsties have actually worked out that the stone is there and know it's in danger should have been enough to see the Headmaster immediately! While I realize that Snape (in your AU, anyway) has been helpful and believed them, McGonagall's attitude pretty much characterizes the way the remainder of the adults in Harry's world have regarded him. Sometimes I've wondered why Harry bothers.
Anyway, I enjoyed your story.

As a retired teacher, I realize there is a lot of politicking that goes on among staff and administration. There is even a certain amount among the kids as they enter middle school years (it's worse among the girls, I'm sorry to say) and, yes, parents still get involved. The difference here seems to be that the parents appear to foment a lot of the hostilities from the outside. It will be interesting to see if Snape, McGonagall, and Dumbledore can stop any problems before they start simply by working together.

Well, so far, so good for the four firsties. They seem to be trying to maintain détente between Slytherin and Gryffindor. It will be interesting to see if it carries to other years.

I'm glad Harry trusts Snape enough to tell him from the get-go about how Quirrell is affecting him. It might eliminate a lot of problems early on.
I feel sorry for Neville. The poor kid can't catch a break ... unless it's a bone.

Well, your Slytherins seem somewhat friendlier than those of the books. Then again, even though he hasn't much cared for Draco's behavior, Harry has decided to withhold forming an opinion just yet. I've noticed that in most fics where Harry and Draco are less hostile, Harry has a less difficult time ... despite his Voldemort-related adventures.
Chapters twelve and thirteen need to be rewritten and combined into one chapter. There is way too much repetition in chapter thirteen.

So Snape didn't tell Harry how to get onto the platform, either. Interesting.

"I also need to pick up 'you-know-what' and vault 'you know-where' ..." This is VERY un-Snape-like. Those just aren't the words of a master spy. While saying little on the surface, they give away too much information aloud. Snape would simply say he needed to retrieve something for Dumbledore and glare at the Goblin, trusting the letter and key to supply the details. Or maybe he wouldn't even say anything at all ... just glare.

"What Vernon didn't know was that something far more disturbing than a letter was already on its way to Privet Drive." HeHeHe ... Snape!

The story got better towards the ending.

I will keep reading to the end, but I hope things will pick up to get a little more interesting. The story is too much like the original book with a few variations here and there. You have a nice style of writing, so go ahead and do something with it.
