Some short stories should have been novel-length to fairly tell the tale; some novel-length tales don't have enough clever content to fill a twenty page chapter.
Yours felt just right - you told your tale in enough detail that it didn't feel like an outline and you didn't add 300 pages of unnecessary filler.

Mmmhh yeh baby

This reminds me of Brutal Harry, but with more plot divergence.
I like how you take events from later books (Lockhart, Umbridge etc) and add them in a logical way to accelerate the plot, and Harry is damn devious here.

Only puzzle missing: how did James & Lily get together? From the tone of this, I don't think it was a "nice" story.

Brilliant story, I loved it!
| JIMIRMA chapter 1 . 2/15
Good story. I like this Harry better than the book one. Because some of the things the "adult" wizards and witches do, are ridiculous, unreasonable and extremely lacking in common sense. I love the stories and characters that point that out.

Nice story. Harry didn't cause as much chaos as usual in political stories. But then, maybe it just seems so. There was probably lots of chaos behind the scenes what with the Chamber of Secrets and the Philosopher's Stone traps and other stuff going on.

very nicely done. One shots usually don't do much for me but this one did since you kept it interesting and not just on a day by day timeline. The change in Harry's character as well as the fast pace of the story resulted in a great short story.

What a fun story. I loved Harry outwitting the witless. I would have enjoyed watching Dumpy's face when he realized he was poisoned. lol
Putting this on my fav list so I can read it again, and again. ;)

Often simplistic; sometimes rushed and drags on a bit in other parts; I'm not sure if there are inconsistencies with everyone or if the story's too short to understand characters and we're just seeing different aspects of them. But the logic was sometimes nice; the traps for the Stone, though they seem out of character for such loony adults, are great, maybe the best version I've read, though they could be improved further.

That was swell. I liked the cunning amoral Harry. They were good life lessons, even though the causes behind a few were a bit shalllow. I loved that he actually did something about Snape and Dumbledore rather than just tried to work around them. I liked that he got rid of Voldemort without knowing it.
I think the Elder wand trying to seduce its wielder into getting killed makes a lot of sense based on the three brothers story. It's also as good an explanation for Dumbledore's behavior as any.
Overall I liked it a lot, the only thing I would complain about is its too short :) and he didn't really make the 'adults' suffer much before making them a non-issue. Though being buried alive for the Dursley's was great.
