Very enjoyable. It’s good that it’s a different wrinkle.
Plus the Greengrass Family gets short shrift in canon.

You must be American. Otherwise you'd know it's not a Sorcerer's Stone - it's a Philosopher's Stone. The morons who published the books for some reason decided to change the name of the stone in the American version, even though historically everyone in the world knows about the Philosopher's Stone. Even Americans.
"It also inhabits the Elixer of Life." and then a sentence fragment after that which is not a complete sentence.
The word is spelled Elixir, not elixer. Also, the stone inhabits the elixir? Inhabits means lives in. The stone lives in the elixir? That's nonsense. I don't know what you actually meant, but it's definitely not what you wrote. Perhaps you could find someone to proofread your story for spelling and grammar errors to avoid these kinds of things. Or use a word processor program, since pretty much all of them, even the free ones, have spelling and grammar checkers these days.

I really like this story, and would like to help improve it by pointing out a minor thing that bugged me. The snake that harry talks to for confirmation of his parslemouth powers is described as having a triangular shaped head, usually an indicator of a venomous snake, but the species was said to be a garden or grass snake, both of which do not have triangular shaped heads. This is just a minor nitpick from someone who is way too into reptiles and most normal people wouldn’t notice it, but it bugged me nonetheless. Great story regardless.

Finally finished it. Took a break when something else caught my attention for a week or 2. With your great writing it’s hard not to love this, and I really like it. I won’t say it’s one of my favorite but it’s pretty high. And after all of this time I can’t help but nitpick the part where hermione wasn’t top in the class. That bugged me a little. But now that that’s done I can continue to shovel praise on the story... or not that I think about it, start the next one. Sorry bud I got a story to start!

you know i was really enjoying this... but you had to go and call it the Sorcerer's stone didn't you... other than that i do love this story xD it's just a british thing we get slightly irritated when it's not called the philosophers stone xD anyway back to reading

interesting dynamics, I hope that later years begin to diverge more and more from the original plot. I like your characters a lot, but it did get a (little) bit repetitive reading the exact same events, plot point to plot point as they happened in canon. Your perspective is unique though; I enjoy the friendships forged! Now, onto second year! :) Here's to hoping for some new twists!
