    Totally bland and completely unremarkable. Pointless too.

    Also, BigD has a oneshot with the same premise and same pairing tacked onto the end. Not his best work, but far better than this one IMO.

    I disagree. Jon's fiction is better than Big D's because BigD's Harry is totally OOC. It was fascinating to see how Jon3776 made Harry a Slytherin and yet he was somehow still Harry - it's nice to find Slytherin!Harry fics where he's not completely OOC.

    Nope I'd have to agree that Big D's is better. The whole point of Slytherin!Harry is that he reacts differently from the books - he uses cunning and tactics to win as opposed to the (weak-ass) Harry from canon. This Harry isn't OOC enough to qualify as a Slytherin, and subbing Ron for Draco, Hermione for Daphne, and Gryffindor for Slytherin in the relevant parts would just be the same as canon. WWSHD is better in every respect.

    it wasn't bad but it didn't seem very interesting. Oneshots are the right time to go OOC, there isn't time for character redevelopment anyway. I wanted to be surprised or impressed, which didn't happen.

    3/5
