The draco conversation was weird but enjoyable.
Though they may not be best friends. Hope they can at least be sivil. Maybe draco does a sirius and joins grifendore.
Speeking of sirius. Hope harry get him cleared soon so he does not have to go back to the dursleys.
If dudleys magic is unlocked, would the dursleys kick him out. If so would he stay with harry and sirius
wonder if snape will see james's sporn or lily's son. Hope the latter just to see where that goes.

Like your version of the visit.
Also think that dudley may be more accepting of harry in future.
Wonder what the head lioness will do to dumbles over him making dudley a muggle. Wonder if it can be reversed in time for sept 1st.
Though dudley at hogwarts may be too much of a change.
Guessing magonagal will not forget to tell him how to get on the platform.
Wonder if harry will learn anything at the bank. Or will it be the quick in and out he got with hagrid.
Hope he still gets hedwig. Though not the cage. If there is no cage. Unckle vernon can not lock her in..
Hope harry makes some more friends outside of his house when he gets there

I do hope you have Harry become more studious this time around. Not super smart but a lot more involved and to learn to defend himself better, make better choices for classes not divination as such.

Nothing good comes out of involving Dudley in the magic world. The Dursleys are there as an antagonist for a reason to sympathize with Harry's situation. Approaching this with some really misguided fix me motivation undermines the meta level of stories. A lot writers fall into this fix me trap. Harry in this case obviously has a motivation to fix the problems directly affecting his situation but I have real problems imaging him trying to fix this Dudley situation *you* created to show something about Dumbledore's manipulation I suppose and something to fix. But Harry already knows Dumbledore is manipulating his environment and what reason would Harry truly have to fix DudleyDursleys. None. So it's a redundant and pointless concept.
As a general idea for your story which probably most back in time stories ignore is the aspect of Riddle's power itself and certain powers behind the Ministry supporting him. It would surely be an interesting concept that there were powers which realized what Riddle is at school and helped him perhaps by providing access to magical informations because it suited their own agenda.
A conspiracy always works great in stories. So things could happen as some reaction to Harry's action that Harry doesn't understand first but then realizes there's more behind Riddle than he ever realized. That would avoid the typical trap falls of these back in time stories to have nothing really new to tell.

This is a very creative story. I am enjoying it. Please continue. This chapter makes me wonder if Dudley will become a wizard and attend Hogwarts with Harry. That would certainly be an interesting twist!

This is agreat story. I was very surprised that you did not have hagrid come and get him. I think that was a very good change. Can not wait fornthe next chapter.
