Hey hon! Review tag :D

I love the idea of the hat being a horcrux. I have literally never thought about that or heard that idea before but it makes so much sense now you've said it and the idea fit perfectly in with this story.

Did you write the sorting song yourself?! It's so good! I've seen a few people attempt a sorting song before and, no offence to them since I could certainly never do it, it usually turns out awful. But this one was amazing, it was so real and sounded just like the ones from the books, and it fit in perfectly with this story. I'm seriously impressed right now.

I really liked your characterisation of Tom. He's such a hard character to write but I think you've really captured his mindset, his calculating and intelligent kind of evil.

I loved the tale about the Founders, especially what you said about Slytherin. In just a few short lines you managed to add such depth to a character who is often seen as the root of all evil in the series. I've never thought before about WHY he might be so obsessed with blood purity, but the idea that he witnessed things like the witch trials and muggle fear of/brutality towards magic, it makes so much sense. It also make me feel really sad for him! That short tale was an amazing snapshot into the founders' lives, which is an era I've never actually thought that much about.

Overall I loved this! Well done!

Author's Response: Hi again! :)

It's really funny, that idea just popped into my head one day and I thought it would make an interesting story where the hat is a horcrux. It had never occured to me before that day, but I love hearing people's reactions to it.

Yay, I'm glad you like the song! :D I seem to have a habit of sneaking in my own little rhymes and songs into my fan fics, and the sorting hat one flowed pretty well because it has that layout of singing about each house and rhymes. It was a lot of fun, and great to know it paid off! :)

Yeah, Tom is tricky. I think I liked writing him because he's very focused and intense, which is easier than writing a character who has ulterior motives and goodness hiding somewhere inside them. I'm really pleased he came across well.

I loved writing the founders! They've wormed their way into another one of my stories and there's a lot to build on from JK, which is a lot of fun. I'm really glad to hear you liked them, especially Slytherin. You're right, he does get portrayed as being pure evil, but I think there must have been more to him than that, and I quite liked imagining how he might have been.

Thanks so much for this amazing review! :D
