Oops. Just checked. Hee hee, sorry about that. Diggory was Hufflepuff Quidditch Captain, but there's no reason to assume he was Head Boy. Though somehow I never saw Cho as a prefect...but speculation's always fun, eh?

This is excellent. An engaging alternate point of view of life at Hogwarts. Sympathetic (mostly) Slytherins - now THAT'S a feat. Tobias is particular interesting - I hope you'll give us his POV. He seems to me to be like Percy Weasley. Wait! Let me explain. See, Percy was Sorted into Gryffindor, so he must have latent courage. He certainly upholds what he considers to be law and justice. But at the same time, he's so ambitious and obsessed with position, that if he weren't a Weasley, I think he would have been a Slytherin. On the other hand, there's Tobias - idealistic, seeking unity and friendship with Gryffindor and the rest of Hogwarts. He's almost a Gryffindor. So, perhaps his idealism is so very ambitious, that the Hat put him in Slytherin so he could maximize it?

Anyway, good job at creating interesting characters. Only one criticism. The year of the Triwizard Tournament, Cedric Diggory was Head Boy, not someone in Ravenclaw. Kinda important plot point.

Your title intrigued me, I don't often review here, but I'm glad that I did click on this link. I don't know how many fics I've read where the Slytherins are written as pure evil bastards, misunderstood woobies, or the very popular 'Slytherin sex gods/goddesses'. But your Slytherins are teenagers, not any different or special than any other Hogwarts students and I like that. But they have that Slytherin feel to them, it's hard to describe but it's what separates them from the other three houses and makes them 'a house apart' so often. You understand the Slytherin mindset so well and I can't wait to see what happens in the next couple chapters.

My favourite lines of this second chapter-

"Tobias waved his hands in the air irritably. “I don’t want us to be the paragons of virtue and justice, fighting evil for goodness, honour, and small fluffy puppies. It sounds like a crappy deal. Only the good die young.”

“Which is why we should tolerate the Gryffindors,” Tanith interrupted, winking at Cal. “They’ll snuff it by the time they’re twenty.”"

I hope you'll update soon!

"A downpour of rain tends to be a fairly normal incident anywhere in the British Isles at any time of year. Even in the middle of summer, if all other places on Earth are bright and sunny and warm, there is a near-guarantee that every Brit who has been foolish enough to decide to not go abroad will be permanently sopping wet."

*loves* As a Brit, that appealed to the deepest levels of my soul. :D That introduction was fantastic, and the story as a whole has gotten off to a cracking start! The characters are already dead interesting, and I'm longing to read more. Well done!
