Review:Simi says:
this chapter, i think, was really cute... SS's character in this story just keeps gettin bettr n bettr eachtime... i luv the calm voice he uses wen he speaks to Harry... the only unrealistic thing in this story 4 me is Harry bein scared n fearin evrythin... otherwise this story so far is awesome:)

Author's Response: Well, this is how a real Harry, one that's been abused for all of his life, really WOULD react at first to someone new and a new place. Trust me, I've worked with abused kids like this and a lot of them are distrustful, jumpy, and scared just like Harry and they tend to react in ways that frighten or alarm their caregivers.

Rowling didn't want her hero acting normal, so she made him act like stuff didn't affect him, which was not a correct portrayal of an abused child. This one is closer to what it actually is like.
