Lovely story. It is very amusing and I think you managed to hit the comedy well. Parody is very hard to write, but you were able to find the key factors in each character and situations and invert them.

In just the style of the writing you managed to invert Harry Potter. The story wasn't focused on any particular character but rather on the whole school. Harry was rarely mentioned. And even though the charm of the story is in the inversion of the story, in keeping something the same you gave more insight on the original work. For example the moment when Snape says he was a friend of James, and Harry thinks to himself: Yes thats all you know about me. Which is really all Snape knows about Harry in the original works. That made me laugh out loud at the reality of the comment.

I would have enjoyed seeing the house elves speaking in proper grammer, but having Dolby hating Dumbledore worked well. The Prince of Light was also nicely done. Minus the 60s throw back and the over indulgenous in the love everyone. The idea of the Ministry being a dictatorship in the view of Voldemort's followers was easy for me to accept.

Overall as a short parody it worked nicely. It could have been tightened up a bit more. Some conflict perhaps between Dumbledore and Snape. Or even some more Hufflepuff since they aren't seen too much in the original works.

Author's Response: Thank you!!!! I was a little worried about this story because I had to rush the ending and there are plenty of parts of it that I can criticise myself. Your suggestions would work nicely in a sequal *ponders over the idea* I didn't want to spend too much time talking about Hufflepuffs because... well... I didn't want to be accused of dissing them! The 60's throw back was an idea Sophie and me thought up that worked well as a giggley girly discussion but not to great on paper. Your review has cheered me up after a torturous journey home from holiday! Speak to you soon =))
