That was bloody fantastic! It was realistic and without any Mary Sue-ishness! Great job!

Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review! Next chapter should be in soon(ish)! Glad you liked it. :)

This is very interesting. I like this idea, of Albus being in Slytherin, but I can't really picture his cousins and siblings being so horrible to him. I do understand that they would treat him a little differently, and their reaction very shocked, and maybe their relationship with Al shakier, but I don't think they'd really treat him so horribly. I think Harry would've at least tried to tell them not to prejudice against Slytherins. I think the relationship between Al and his cousins might've gotten worse, but not as bad as though they would've hexed him like any other Slytherin. They know Albus isn't a bad kid, as they've all known him for quite a long time, so they really shouldn't act so mean around him. This just seems slightly implausible, sorry.
Same thing with Piper. Hannah and Neville don't seem like the type to prejudice against Houses, they seem a lot like Harry. I know they're not really doing anything wrong, but it's not very likely that they would feel "betrayed" over little things like being in a different House. After all, it's their children--they should know that Piper isn't really evil or anything. She's really just the exact she person they'd known all along. This may come off as harsh, but it really bothers me.
On the other hand, the ending of this chapter seemed more like the ending for a one-shot. It's great and all, but I don't feel this need to continue reading even though there's more to this story. This would actually be a great one-shot in my honest opinion. I don't actually think the prejudice against Slytherins would be this huge, though. Even after Voldemort, I think Harry would've made it public that not all Slytherins are evil, and the Wizarding world would've changed its views a little bit and forgive. The hatred shown in this fic seems really over-reacted.
I quite like this fic so far, though. The point of view is really cool, and it makes me think about this in a different perspective.

Author's Response: Wow, thank you so much for the review. :)

I get what you're saying about Al and Piper, but let me explain my reasoning. First off, I'm trying to make a dramatic statement. Also, I can tell you from experience, family doesn't always get along. My cousins and I . . . well, we're anything but close-knit. Also, their uncle was killed by Slytherins, and their entire family prejudiced against and tortured. And then their cousin, son of the Savior of the wizarding world, willingly goes to the people who did that. I think they would feel betrayed. As for Piper, Neville and Hannah were both tortured by Slytherins . . . and I picture that Hannah can hold a grudge. Plus, you never know how intense certain families are about certain things.

As for the chapter . . . I really wanted it to be cryptic. :) It was meant to sound more one-shoty, and I used it for a dramatic opener, I guess.

Thanks again for your amazing review. I'm glad you're enjoying it so far, and don't judge everyone too soon. ;)

I love your view on things post-war, most people just make everyone a family again and so on but I like the shocking reality in the story about how most humans will hold grudges for generations.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for your review, Eva. Being a Slytherin on the boards, it annoyed me slightly that everyone automatically made Slytherins antagonists. It got me thinking, and here I am! I know that Gryffindors are notorious for holding grudges, so I worked it into my idea of what being a Slytherin might be like. Thank you so much for the review, and I'm glad you liked it!

Reading the summary I wasn't too sure about what I was about to read but I really really liked it. Even though its a bit hard to imagine their own families hating them. I can't wait to see what you do with this.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review. The summary is kind of cryptic, but I like it that way. Part of the story is reversing the roles; Slytherin is on the bottom. Also, imagine if you were a war hero like Neville or Hannah, who all were tortured in the final year of school, and were attempted to murder by Slytherins. Then suddenly your child is one of them. They could react two ways: one, they can't see pass their child's house, or they accept that their child is a Slytherin, and love them because they are their child. For the purposes of my story I had them make the wrong decision.

Anyways, I'm thrilled you liked it. Slytherins get such a bad rep (and somehow I am one of the slippery snakes) and I wanted to change that. I posted a new chapter a few days ago, so watch for it!

Thanks!

Author's Response: Thank you, Lily, I really appreciate the review. I'll try to post soon, but I think there was an issue with your review, as there are two of them, split apart. Yes, Abi is an amazing beta, but I will post ASAP. Thanks again!

Heyy Ellehhhh

I know I already read this but I figured I would leave a shiny review for you anyhow, since you keep leaving me such lovely reviews. I'm typing on my nook and I'm REALLY bad/slow at it so it will be short.



I do like this, Abi is a fabulous beta, i

Author's Response: Thanks for the fabulous review! I said more on Pt. 2!
