Review #1, by Roots in Water Expectations

19th May 2011:
I absolutely love your story! I enjoy and prefer AUs, but the majority of Slytherin!Harry stories have Harry friends with Draco and/or Ron & Hermione, and it was interesting to read this perspective. I especially liked how you ended- it would have been nice to know how things ended between Voldemort and Harry, but unnecessary. Your story is complete, and I throughly enjoyed reading it.

Author's Response: I'm so very glad that you enjoyed this. I'm glad you thought it was unnecessary to know how things ended with Voldemort - because that's what I thought too. This fic wasn't about that; it was about a complete, and utter, lack of someone to turn to. Thanks for reading. =)

Review #3, by JohnnyPickAlot Expectations

25th June 2010:
Hey, JohnnyPickAlot from the forums. Sorry that it's taken me three months to finally review. -___- Anyway.
This one-shot made me extremely uncomfortable. The violence, the loneliness and the hate was just so wrong! And you wrote it beautifully! It was everything that could've gone wrong, went wrong and it very nearly made me cry.
Harry's not supposed to suffer at Hogwarts, he's supposed to have the time of his life and be the hero. Not the villain.
This fic really gave me a different perspective of things.
Very well done.

Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing. I'm glad you liked it.

Review #5, by mizzxpearl Expectations

14th March 2010:
Hey! This is mizzxpearl with your review. :D

Okay, well the concept itself was very intruging. It really made the reader think!

The down part of this story was that everyone seemed OOC. If you remember, the night back, Draco wanted to be friends with Harry. Had Harry been sorted into Slytherin, I'm sure Draco would have sucked up to him. Also, I feel like Hermione would never scoff at someone just because their in Slytherin. And Dumbledore and Hagrid would always be on Harry's side.[

I did like where you finished the story though, and I kind of wish you'd went on to him killing Voldemort, and then maybe becoming the next one? Or wherever you wanted to go with this. I would have been very interesting to read about!

You were able for the reader to evoke emotions for Harry, which is a really good talent to be able to do, especially in a story as short as this one. Througout the entire time, I just felt so bad for Harry!

Anyway, keep writing! You're doing just fine. :D

Author's Response: Thanks for the review.

As for the OOC comment, I guess, in my mind, when Draco realized how much everyone instantly despised Harry he changed his mind about being Harry's friend, though I know I'm reaching with that one. Hermione, I actually did think about, and I think about two years with NO friends at all, her attitude would've shifted, slightly, especially towards someone like Harry, who at that point had a bad reputation. Hagrid wasn't so much NOT on Harry's side, as he just wasn't Harry's friend. He did talk to Harry, just very uncomfortably. And Dumbledore wasn't so much mean to Harry as he was just a normal, distant headmaster.

That being said, the main reason I made everyone dislike Harry is because I wrote this story after reading a request for a completely friendless!Harry.

I'm glad you think I was able to evoke emotions. Thanks again for the review.
