Chapter: Sympathy for the Serpent

I was not sure, when I was reading this for the first time, whether this was meant to be a real justification for Slytherin's actions or rather an example of his twisted logic-- something to the effect of 'an evil deed is justified by a righteous end.' Even after a second reading I am not sure. Ultimately I think what Salazar did was unpardonable and so I view his 'justification' as completely unsatisfactory. However, I wish to stress how much I really enjoyed this work. It makes you think hard about why someone would do something so apparently evil and depraved. Everyone has a 'good reason' for what they do, no matter how mistaken they are. While Slytherin's regret strikes me as odd (why should he regret what he thinks is right-- is it because the means are so drastic?) I thought the way he reasoned betrayed a very human character. Fictional villains are typically one-dimensional. Your Salazar was a believable one.

I'm off to see if you have written anything else. Well done in this one shot!

Pax.

Author's Response: Wow. Thank you. You're right, I am not trying to justify Slytherin, but to give him another dimension than evil. You made me blush.

Chapter: Sympathy for the Serpent

This is a very interesting way to describe his reasons for putting his basalisk into the shool. I find it quite like something that could have been written by Slytherin.

It has a few gramatical errors, but is otherwise intact.

I really enjoyed it. Great Job.

Author's Response: Thanks. Glad you liked it.
