I just wanted to say that so far this looks good and interesting.
Very interesting twist on the agreement between Petunia and Dumbledore.

Good story. Thank you.

Very interesting story so far - you have an excellent writing style. After the first chapter I was going to applaud your carefully constructed rebuke of Dumbledore's canon machinations, but then you invented the Petunia/Dumbles conspiracy over Dudley and I had to recant. However, I do like how well you portrayed the events following; subtle changes to canon that made sense in context, although I have my doubts about bringing Dudley to Hogwarts. I had hoped your attention to detail would lead us down a road within the canon universe, but you obviously had different ideas. Nice job of keeping everyone's characterizations realistic as well; it's a refreshing change from a lot of fanfic writers who seem to thrive on extremes.
Not sure where you intend to go with Rich!Harry (a Potter family vault is strictly fanon) so I will wait to see how that plays out. I can only assume you did it to help him fit in better with the moneyed-class Slytherins. I am a little surprised that the pure-bloods were mocking Harry with the honorific "Lord" which would have a very different meaning to wizards with no knowledge of muggle nobility. Are they accusing him of being a Dark Lord in training already?

Wow. This is very good! It's actually one of the most quiet fics I've read, in a good way. And while I don't agree with the "Dumbledore is a manipulative old codger"-view, then I find it very fitting for this story:)
I'd love to see where this goes:)

Well that was certainly a differant twist.
| Guest chapter 13 . 10/21/2012

| James018 chapter 13 . 10/21/2012
Interesting do-over. Can't wait to see more.

While an interesting chapter, particularly your comments (via Harry/Hermione) on the nature of magic and Wizarding/pureblood society and politics, you didn't go into that much actual detail in regards to those topics- it more felt like they were mentioned and gave the cliffnotes of the cliffnotes on those topics. I'd love to see those topics expanded on (Without doing a datadump).
I will also add that while this chapter was necessary as a backdrop to Harry and Hermione's relationship, it did feel like somewhat of a filler chapter. I'd suggest doing some small time jump for the next chapter into the next major event in book 1.

you have a good start to your story keep working on it. As I think it show a lot of promise so far, it is well thought out and is very well written, the way you have handle the story arc is very good by add to canon it gives you opportunity to develop the story in your own way and to me the best fan-fiction story's do this so thank you for all your hard work and i look forward to your next update
