Great story. Read it over a couple of days. Usually like Snarry slash but found this a lot of fun and really kept my interest. I'm going to see if you made a sequel...I hope so. I'd like to see Harry tell Snape and Burbrage that he considers them his parents and loves them. Would like to read Charity marrying Snape. And give Harry a "brother" or "sister". I would have loved it if Severus found some money for Harry to inherit from somewhere. Sorry but for some reason I really like slash (and I'm female) so I'd like to have Harry paired with Draco. Some stories have mpreg so that would work out.

I don't like stories where poor harry is left destitute by his parents. That is not what would happen. And His grandfather is still alive. He should be there. The entire premise is flawed and somewhat unbelievable. I see Severus doing as he's doing. His problem in canon was not seeing past the child's appearance, he never tried.
And Dumbledore needs to be slapped down hard. I'm sorry had to vent.

Wonderful story. I love the changes you made and how they contained Voldermort.

I love your Severus. He's not blindly following Dumbledore as in cannon and does what I would think this brilliant man would do and that's to secretly follow his own agenda when he thinks Dumbledore is wrong. And Dumbledore is wrong a lot. Dumbledore's keeping secrets gets people killed and it killed Severus in the end. Which is another beef I have with that woman. After what happened to Arthur Weasley you know Severus would have dosed himself with antivenin and had it and blood replenishers on him just in case. I really hate when authors dumb down their characters when we have been told how intelligent they are. If Quirrell had gotten the stone then Voldermort would have probably won the war because Harry was just too young to face him. That was a huge risk to take to test Harry. Dumbledore took a lot of risks with other people's lives. I really do like that Severus, Minerva as well as others aren't blindly following the ole coot.

Interesting choice for Hufflepuff. I think this is the first story I've read where Harry's been sorted into it. Should be interesting to see how Harry's friends feel about it.

Holy crap! Severus is the big bad wolf. If I didn't already love him I'd love him now for taking Petunia down.

I really really enjoyed this. As a Brit myself, there were a few Brit-picks that struck me, for example, we call Clue, Cluedo (The only English speaking country to do so though, so only a little thing). But it was a really nice change to read a 'Snape Mentors Harry' story that criticised Dumbledore without actually unfairly bashing him to the extent that some people do.

I strongly agree with your author note _. Tom grew up during an economic crisis, as an orphan - we all know how well orphans back then were treated and thought of - and then there was WW2, and London was under constant bombardment. It was ugly. Grindelwald's reign didn't really touch Magical Britain, so Tom's time at Hogwarts was probably spent around people who had no idea about what was truly going on, who hadn't had to witness the ugliness of the muggle war and led a relatively tranquil life. Tom was forced to go back to muggle London during the war every summer, even when he petitioned to remain at Hogwarts. I doubt he wasn't aware of the atomic bombings that took place in 1945; he lived his whole life in fear. And Dumbledore condemned a mere child, a victim - in his ignorance.

Random, but one of my classes (Communication Sciences and Disorders) actually brought up Quirrel in class and this chapter made me think of it. I'd never thought of it this way, but stuttering tends to be applied to characters in movies or books (eg Quirrel) as an indicator of a character flaw. Either they're shy or somehow dark (disabilities in general are used to indicate darkness). I dunno, it just made me look at Quirrel's character in a different way.
Also, I just wanted to send you some support. I know it's been a long time since you wrote this, but it sounds like things were really difficult for you at the time. *hugs*
I guess I should end with something about the fic itself. It's awesome, although that goes without saying. And it's weird, but you're right, I'd never read happy!Harry before. It's nice. And all your characters are in character and I like your logic about how just because Rowling dragged the story out doesn't mean you have to...thinking about it has actually altered the way I want to write one of my fics, so thanks. :)

I really like how believable this was. And how many of the elements from all seven books were included. Well done. Looking forward to part 2.
