I have one main critique and it's for this chapter only: I disagree with only one part in this chapter: I think that Ginny would have kicked Ronald Weasley in the balls so hard his great-great-grand children would feel it (And Ron would have deserved it!). Like her or not, Ginny is a powerful witch with a temper and able to take care of herself.

Really good story.

That was quite an enjoyable story with some unique elements. You did an excellent job with the challenge and even made me like Ginny. It's also, unfortunately, believable that the wizarding world would let a child kidnapper and war monger continue to serve as headmaster. It's fun to try to imagine where the story would go from here. I figure that Severus will stay on until Alex is done, but then would probably leave, unless he's finally making headway with removing Slytherin prejudice. I could see him deciding to stay to help foster that. I could see an enjoyable sequel coming from this, but it is satisfying as a short story, too.

Nice story. I've never read one with this premise before. Dumbledore is still his manipulative old self, I see. I'm not sure where he gets such a benign reputation when he has no compunction at all about ruining the lives of other people. This situation was even worse than the Harry/Dursleys situation, because Alex had a living family that loved him very much. Taking him away ruined four lives.
Dumbledore got away with murder in this case ... literally, if you ask me. He was directly responsible for the death of Mrs. Snape, and his "punishment" was certainly not equal to his crime. What's more ... attempting to foment another war is treason. I'm surprised he wasn't kissed. I'd like to know how he explained away THAT charge.
Good job, nice story.

Interesting story premise. I think you are doing a great job with the blood adoption issue. Your take seems to be similar to my own where the Dursleys and Dumbledore's "blood wards" were concerned. It's all intent-based. In the book, the Dursleys never wanted Harry, and once he was old enough to understand, he never considered 4PD as home. Therefore, I have always seriously doubted that the so called "blood wards" ever even existed after the first few months. Since Dumbledore never bothered to visit and check them, how would he ever have known?
If Harry feels wanted and begins feeling loved by the Snapes, I believe his looks will change.

hehe I like your story, but you ARE aware of the fact that
200,000 hours 8333.33... days 22.8... years.
Thus, if Dumbledore would do community service for nearly 23 years, 24/7, only then he would have served his sentence... and because he has to sleep, this would mean that if he does nothing but work and sleep, he'd still need over 30 years... just thought it funny ;)

this is really a brilliant idea on blood adoption. The story's really good

Is there more to this?

GINNY IS AWESOME!
Her loyalty is Awesome! And in the right place!
True! I agree it's either Slytherin or Hufflepuff for Ginny...!
And after all, Hufflepuff is a House where student who can go to Any House!
It was Great!
Though... (Thinking should i say it or not) ...ah, never mind... #blinks
Totally unexpected but Great nevertheless! (Did i said it right?)
