Is "A New Childhood" going to be a 1-off or the beginning of a new story? The way you wrote it it could be either.

This fan fic should be in the humour category. It is easily one of the funniest I've read to date.


Summary: [Year 2: Complete] Its Harry’s second year as a Slytherin, and the Chamber of Secrets has been opened. The Heir of Slytherin is out there somewhere, having students petrified left and right, and by the end of the year someone will die from Slytherin’s horrible beast. But this time, Harry's the one with Riddle's diary.

How will Harry’s years at Hogwarts turn out, now that he's a Slytherin? Will he turn to the Dark Arts and be a follower of Voldemort? Or will he kill Voldemort, or die trying, after he learns of the prophecy? Will Harry's choices lead him down a different road? Follow and you will see...

“What is a diary as a rule? A document useful to the person who keeps it, dull to the contemporary who reads it, invaluable to the student, centuries afterwards, who treasures it.” –Ellen Terry

Just a suggestion. According to the HP Lexican there is a Slytherin girl in Harry's year named Tracy Davis. The tory itself is good. Keep it up.

Author's Response: Ooo! I\'ll get some info on her! Thanks!! ~Sara



"It feels as if the whole world is falling apart," said Neville, "and I'm falling right along with it."

In the fifth instalment of the Neville Longbottom saga, Voldemort is back, but nobody wants to know. Facing pressure from all sides, and feeling alone and abandoned, the Boy-Who-Lived confronts the depths of despair and the darkest corners of his soul.

With a direct link to evil plaguing his mind and the cruel Dolores Umbridge determined to break him, can Neville find the hope and strength to carry on? And will he be prepared to embrace his destiny? The darkness falls in Year Five...

A note on the warnings: there's nothing there you won't find in the canon novel.

I have read all these Neville Longbottem stories and they are coming together well. Good start to the next installment.
One question though, couldn't the ministry official or Neville's gran have repaired the damage to Robert's shirt? It would have made hiding what had happened easier.

Author's Response: I suppose in theory they could have fixed his shirt, but I wanted a good line to end the chapter, and that worked best. Let's go with the theory that neither of them noticed the tear before they let Robert go. Robert's mother just assumed he'd torn it practising football. The whole incident was well enough hidden.
