Quick question. But before I ask let me do a little background the world of the Potter verse as far as the magical side goes it's set during the medieval times or what some people like to call the Victorian era now that we've got that straight here's my question during this time what was the single most important thing to a noble and here's a hint it had absolutely nothing to do with title or money in fact people with chill because other people had Dishonored or disrespected this thing when you figure it out send me a PM and we can talk but what's wrong with your your fanfiction

Harry is amazingly ... amazingly stupid. If I were in his place, I would not trust Dumbledore if he said water is wet without independent verification. Even if he were to believe that Dumbledore has the best intentions towards Harry, that would mean that his judgment is seriously wrong, and everything he says should be suspicious. In this story, Dumbledore seems to be so delusional that he has convinced himself that he is acting in Harry's best interest, which shows a remarkable disconnect from reality. Some chapters ago he wondered what he did to lose Harry's trust. Yet he keeps doing more and more of the same, thereby making it worse. There is a quote that insanity is doing the same and expecting different results.
Harry should get Dumbledore arrested for this. It is his responsibility to educate the students, not to use them as chess peaces. And if parent remove their children from Hogwarts because of this, is it better to have them ignorant of Dumbledore's attitude towards his students? And if the opinion is that there is nothing wrong with what he did because Hermione's parents are Muggles, then the society isn't worth saving.
Perceiving the world as he wants it to be and not as it is is a serious danger, especially for someone trusted with important decisions and a lack of people to question these decisions. Having Snape as a teacher is detrimental for society or in other words, for the Greater Good. Snape encourages the Slytherins to become Death Eaters, whether intentionally or not. It is also not true that he has to behave that way to become a spy later on, quite the opposite. That Dumbledore allows him to behave this way means that Dumbledore is aware he is a spy, and therefor negates his value as a spy for Voldemort. It also means that Voldemort wouldn't trust him with anything important, negating his value as a spy for Dumbledore. You wouldn't expect Snape to behave like Dumbledore's greatest supporter while in the presence of Voldemort, and you wouldn't expect him to behave like a Death Eater while in Dumbledore's presence.

It doesn't make sense to have the electives at the same time, because if Arithmancy and Divination are at the same time, it prevents any student from having just Arithmancy and Divination, a perfectly valid combination.
It only makes sense as a way to later explain the Deus ex Machina, version 3, at the end of the book.

There is actually a good reason why Hermione should be worried about Harry heading off with Sara. The relationships, as you've written them, show Hermione being mentally abusive on a fairly regular basis while Harry and Sara have a far healthier relationship. Berating someone for a thought they had and discarded without your input shows a disturbing level of entitlement and a severe lack of empathy.
You may wish to consider a beta reader going forward. Some of the mistakes you are making are very avoidable (black-male instead of blackmail for example).

You really went all-out on the sexism in this chapter, huh? Remember to mind your tenses. You have a tendency to switch them mid-sentence.

This is one of my favourite stories on this website but Hermione is just annoying. The amount of times Harry says "please don't be mad!" and "Relax, I will tell you all about it" is too damn high. She sounds like a bossy nag and is too jealous. Nobody would want to be in a relationship with her.
