    Title: Perfect Slytherins - Tales from the First Year
    Author: Jeconais
    Rating: Mature (at least that's how Jeconais rates it)
    Genre: AU, Crossover
    DLP Category: Alternates
    Pairing: Harry/Wednesday Addams
    Chapters: 2
    Words: 19,331
    Published: July 24, 2008

    Status: Complete

    Summary: Severus Snape. Feared Potions Professor. Head of Slytherin House. For years, he had eagerly awaited the son of the person he hated more than all others. And if there was one thing he discovered, it was that Harry Potter was NOT the son of James Potter. What he was, would change his life, and the lives of everything around him. The saviour had returned, not as the Perfect Gryffindor, as so many had hoped, but as the Perfect Slytherin, and the fall out would be felt for all time.

    Yes, a Harry Potter/Addams Family crossover with only one chapter (8,795 words) posted, but I believe its start is a lot better than the one for Jeconais's previous work, the imperfect "Happily Ever After," and if Perfect Slytherins maintains its start, it looks to be library worthy.


    Sequels:

    Title: Perfect Slytherins - Tales From The Second Year
    Chapters: 2
    Words: 31,110
    Published: January 14, 2010
    Updated: January 21, 2010
    Status: Complete
    Summary: Harry Potter was the son of James Potter in name only, and that fact was enough to change Severus Snape's opinion of the boy. This year, Snape was looking forward to the entertainment they would provide, because he knew, with out a shadow of a doubt, that if he kept his nose out of their business, they would ignore him. He also knew that others in the school would be unable to follow this simple rule. He just didn't realise how hard it would be to keep it himself.

    Title: Perfect Slytherins - Tales From The Third Year
    Chapters: 3
    Words: 45,900
    Published: August 24, 2010
    Updated: July 16, 2011
    Status: Complete ??? (Labeled as WiP)
    Summary: After two years of watching from the outside, Severus found himself being drawn in to the Addams family. No longer an outsider, Severus finds his world changed, as a destiny far greater than any he had ever imagined is offered to him. And so, he allows himself to be ensnared, finding that the middle road is far more exciting than the extremes of dark and light.

    Perfect Slytherins by Jeconais - M

    I'm well aware what happened to the last fic that was posted here. But this one seems like it's starting out a lot darker, and hopefully won't fail as badly.

    It's not the meaningless fluff that he's posted before, so that's a good sign.
    The scene in the middle of the chapter with the blood was brilliant.
    Something about the perspective makes it more humorous than dark, at least so far.
    It's too early to rate, but so far it's a winner. I'd give a 4/5 so far.

    Best thing he's posted in a while, and I'm looking forward to more. 4/5.

    I actually like this quite a bit. It has that element of the strange that appeals to me. But there are unanswered questions, such as why Harry wasn't at the Dursleys, etc.

    But the most important odd thing is that all these strange things happen and no one really says anything about it,

    That seems a little fishy to me. It kind of feels like off the wall for the sake of being so, and not for a definable purpose. That might need to be addressed.

    All that said, I like this story.

    Please continue!

    This is an awesome take, I'll wait a few chapters before I decide whether to give this 4 or 5 stars. The Adams-ness is very strong here, at any rate.

    MERGED THE TWO.

    I read this one and I'm not quite sure how I feel about it yet. It's interesting. But this Harry is so different from most Harry's, I'm still not sure how much I like him. Wednesday seems kind of over-the-top. Were she an original character, the Mary Sue meter would be off the charts. And considering a fair amount will not know much about The Addams Family, in some ways she is practically an OC.

    Nevertheless, there are some delightful little tortures for all the characters we love to torture. Jeconais' worst stuff still makes me giggle in delight though, so I expect I will like this quite a bit.

    Still, there's not enough for me to vote yet.

    I couldn't finish it. It just smacks too heavily of SUPER!Harry, and Super!OCs as well (I'm familiar enough with both the original Addams Family, and the Movie), but as nonjon said, they were too over the top.

    This is more Jaconais fluff, but dressed in black and pretending to be a vampire.

    If it was a oneshot I would love it anyways with a 10/10. Of course, I have Jeconais stuck in my tastebuds so I'd say that about most of his work. As a chaptered story, I'm quite giddy.

    There is a sense of Super!Harry sure but that's just nice fun. Dumbledore is confused so it needs more of him and it would be cool to have some idea from the other heads of houses. Still, AWESOME.

    I couldn't finish it. I know almost nothing about the Addams family except the theme song. (Which is awesome btw)

    As Rin mentioned, this smacks heavily of SUPER!OC. I did not like it.

    I will however, refrain from rating it. Even if I don't know anything about the characters, other people do, and apparently don't think it over the top.

    If I had to though, it'd be 2/5.

    I know about the Addams family from the original show, the cartoon, and the movies. I have to say that I like this but it is very Super! 4/5

    If I were to take this fic too seriously, I wouldn't like it. Super!OC? Crazy powerful Harry? Bah.

    But, you know what, I had a lot of fun reading this. Just like anything else, Super!Harry can be done in an entertaining fashion. Is it an epicly high quality fic? No. But it is entertaining, and I think that, because of DLP's hatred for all things cliche, we overlook that entertainment is really the mark of a deserving fic. If we went by "the rules" alone we'd end up trashing a lot of great stuff, like this fic and Nonjon's latest venture into male gentalia related fiction.

    4/5 for now. Might go up later.

    This was over the top for me too... but the Addams themselves are over the type, so I can understand it somewhat.

    The first chapter is good enough for a 4/5.

    I certainly enjoyed. I've come to expect high quality writing from Jeconais and this being not his usual fluff made it all the better. 5/5.

    Jeconais' work always catches my interest, and if it's as uncommon as an Addams Family crossover, it catches my interest even more.

    Overall seems good, fun to read and entertaing. My only problem was with Harry's character, which seems a bit too "uberpowered" for my tastes, even for Jeconais' fiction standards (come on, an eleven year old bossing Dumbledore around?). I did like, however, that most of his power was over people, manipulating and commanding rather than engaging situations hands on. This sort of "mafia!Harry" element was a welcome change from all his previous works, as it was the darker setting.

    Good and entertaining, a very well done chapter overall. Hoping to see more of it soon enough.

    4'5/5 at the moment.

    I'll wait until there is more before giving it a score, but from the first chapter the story seems rather well done.

    For that alone this is a 4/5.

    I don't know too much about the Adams Family, but if you take this as a light hearted fic, its excellent.
