Hello! here is your review

I really really enjoyed this. I love that immediately you convey the sense of self-importance that Riddle possesses and his solitude, as well as the fact that his peers are in awe of him. His thoughts about the Chamber showed this the most, even though he isn't using it to unleash the Basilisk it was interesting that he still went there simply because only he could.
Great job on the Sorting Hat's song too, I admire authors who take the time to write these instead of skipping over them. Yours had a lovely combination of the different personality aspects for each house and the hat's own views of it's intelligence. I liked the last line about not bending the rules, it was a nice touch! The fact that it had it's own personality was excellent, the hint of sarcasm really made me laugh.
The references to older, minor characters was a great addition, especially Billius Weasley. I also really enjoyed the characterisation of Dippet, an old, tired and slightly fed up Headmaster, obviously ready for retirement!
The flashbacks were my favourite part, Godric and Salazars close friendship was unexpected and yet made perfect sense. You described their duel and Slytherin's death beautifully.
My jaw dropped when I read that the hat was a Horcrux, what a twist!
Overall a brilliant story, fantastically written, clever and thought-provoking.

Author's Response: Hello!

I'm so happy you liked the story!! I really enjoyed writing Riddle and his interactions with other people. I'm glad you liked the setting in the Chamber, it definitely feels like a place he'd go to feel special, maybe bring his Charms homework down there...

I'm glad you liked the song!!! It was a little goofy but also fun to write, as rhyming has never been my forte haha. The songs were always some of the best parts of the HP books so I wanted to give it a try.

I imagine Bilius being the Fred and George of that generation, haha, and I'm glad you liked the reference to him and the other characters. I feel like there's a whole world and cast from that era that I'd love to see explored more!!

Phew, I'm glad to hear you liked the flashbacks since I was a little uneasy about them. It's good they had the desired effect, especially the duel!! :)

Thank you so much for such a lovely review, and for the swap!!! I really appreciate it :)
