Summary: Raised to despise magic, eleven-year-old Harry Potter isn't sure being a wizard is a good thing... although a certain snarky Potions Master might just change his mind.
This gives a good point-of-view of wee!Harry, the influence the Dursleys have on him, both positive and negative. It's intriguing to see how this Harry interprets things differently, and fun to read between the lines of Snape's reactions.
