Hi! Review Tag!

I think this is an intriguing start to the story! Since it's called 'Dear Al,' and the beginning of this chapter talks about Al's insecurities about being in Slytherin, I have a feeling the things that Harry will read in the diary will spur him to say what he did about Snape in the Epilogue of the original books. I myself am pretty intrigued about what Harry will discover, both about Snape and about his mother.

I think your characterisation of Harry is very good here- I feel like he would be curious enough to do everything he does here, but also sensitive enough to understand the importance of what he reads.

All in all, very good prologue! Good job! :)

Author's Response: Thanks a lot for your review :)
I'm glad you felt intrigued and I hope you will read on :)
I'm trying to make this as realistic as possible, but I also mainly want to write about what would see to be key turning points and important incidents in his life :)
I'm glad to hear that the characterization came off well :) I've always felt that Harry would be curious to know more about Snape. And this seemed like a pretty good way to explore his life and their relationship from that angle.
Thanks for the review :)
