Okay, I just realised how vague my last review was. I meant, he has a fortune, so he doesn't need to ask for pity. Really like the story, though - it's quite realistic and your grammar doesn't make me want to cut myself ;)

Ahhh... Poor Harry. He's got a fortune! A FORTUNEEE!

Ooh! It sounds like the Ravenclaw Diadem Horcrux has Anthony in its grip!
| Dcharger chapter 64 . 3/6
Oh my god! I knew it was him after the second nightmare, but I was like, it can't be, their not connected. But then I remembered that he picked that jewelry up in The Room. I mean I thought he was going dark on his own, and then the scene with Warrington threw me off for a second and...
So enough of my freaking out. This is the second time I've read this story, the first time I lost my place right before second year and I was lazy in going back and trying to find it again. And I'm so glad I decided to pick it back up.
You handle the characters so well, and I love the little details that Harry misses- like what happen with Blaise and Pansy. This is probably the best and most BELIEVABLE Slytherin!Harry I've ever read. Things are actually different BECAUSE he's a Slytherin and has different friends, rather than it being a rehash of the books.
Dudley's character development was very well done. You don't bash on the characters- not even Petunia, cause its exactly what she would have done, and she's actually trying to fix it. Umbridge is as hateful as she was in the book and movie- she gone farther though cause they're fight back alot more effectively.
The humor is excellent, the rows so believable- they get more dramatic the older the kids get, it awesome- and the relationships between every one... That's my favorite part.
Draco... this is by far my favorite because its so different. Every other Draco and Harry friendship fic has Draco just changing, and his family going along with it because they love him so much. Sure they give a nod that his father is trying to manipulate or turn Harry dark through Draco or something similar and Draco 'trying' for like a minute and then giving up. You did that, but you took it so much farther...
and this is the first time I've seen Draco, well you know, because he doesn't want to be Death Eater. And the huge super long fight between Harry and him, while somewhat depressing- I wanted it to end like the next chapter after it first started up, and I wanted Harry to confront him and punch him and yell at him. And then after I wanted him to just forgive him and give him a manly hug and everything to go back to normal, and would be friends again and get along and not fight or be awkward around each other any more.- but in the end I like it better this way. Makes for a deeper bond or something. And I'm a sucker for brotherly love, so yeah. (Dudley doesn't even come close to counting, I don't care if they are actually related.)
In conclusion... I love the humor, I love the drama, I love the relationships- both the platonic and the in-between- and I love the realism. I love this story, and I want to kick myself for not reading it through the first time around- I would add it to my favorites but its been on there for years now. So keep up the good work, and I don't mind if I have to wait forever, but I would love to see this finished, but no pressure. Great job, I'm going to check all the little boxes below just to be sure.

Thank you for updating! Please write the next chapter soon, I have to know what's going on with Anthony! And I loved Fred and George, as usual.

Loving this story. It looks like it was updated recently even though it was started quite awhile ago, so I'm hoping that means it will be finished?
Anyway, I recently came across another story that was purely from Harry's POV and I really enjoyed the effect, so I was very pleased to see that you were also sticking with Harry and only noting things that Harry would notice (with the few possibly sarcastic exceptions). I enjoy your interpretation of Slytherin!Harry and was pleased back in the early years of Hogwarts when even the Slytherins still acted like the children they were. Many Slytherin based stories have all of the children acting much older than is believable right from the start. So, good job scaling the drama up as they're getting older and becoming more aware of the adult situations and the coming war, all while being true to their characters. Speaking of characters, your characters are well developed and typically react in a way that seems appropriate to the reader.
I like that you didn't stick too closely to the original plot - specifically for how a Slytherin Harry and friends would deal with Quirrell, the basilisk, and the Triwizard Tournament. Though I did find myself wondering why Harry wasn't entered into the tournament. I understand that having Quirrell instead of Pettigrew and having Crouch and Winky would bring the possibilities of plan changes, but it still left a good mystery for the reader to solve in trying to figure out what exactly had changed before they could know that Quirrell was involved.
This new plot development with Anthony being possessed by Tom Riddle promises to bring plenty of surprises as well. I wasn't sure what would happen back when he found the diadem in the Room of Requirement, and I think I'm a little bit glad that they didn't immediately discover that it was like the diary since this way makes for a more interesting story (though admittedly does not bode well for the protagonists).
I hope to see a new chapter up soon - though not so soon as to sacrifice quality. Keep up the good work!

Poor Dudley. He's a glutton for punishment, isn't he. Oh well, maybe Petunia really is trying.
| Lachriel chapter 64 . 3/1
I'm a bit worried that Anthony's been possessed by Voldemort. Have been for a few chapters now, but I hope to be proven wrong. Glad to see more of this being posted. :)
| ShortySC22 chapter 64 . 3/1
I liked this chapter and can't wait to see what Petunia will do next.
| fishertowers chapter 64 . 2/28
Uh oh! Is Anthony possessed? Great chapter!
Thank you for the update,

I almost didn't read this story because I didn't think I'd want to read about a magical Dudley but then I did. And dude. Wow. This is brilliant. I'm enjoying it so much. Anthony and Luna are my favourite so I hope Harry or someone figures it out soon. Yupp. Can't wait for your next update :)

WHOA, WHOA, WHOA, WHOA, WHOA! What is up with Anthony!? Is he being imperio'd? Or... I can't remember, it's been too long, but Riddle's diary has already been played in this fic, hasn't it? Could Anthony be possessed by another horcrux? The diadem perhaps? WHAT IS UP WITH ANTHONY!? Great way to build tension with tha cryptic message at the end there, "He doesn't know everything." Super! Excellent! NICE!

Something quite odd happening with Anthony... quite odd indeed. Thanks for the update!

AWESOME STORY! I havent stopped reading it and my finals are starting next week!
| Konri Kari chapter 64 . 2/27
This is great! The part with Fred and George was pretty darn funny. I hope whatever seems to be wrong with Antony isn't permanent.
