Excellent story! Well done!

Whille I do admit Albus was a manipulitive old coot (the theory behind that I believe his sister's death weighed heavily on him and as he got older he simply lost track of why he turned to the light side (he was undoubtedly dark whille he was friends with Grindlewald) I doubt highly that Albus knew the Potters switched Secret keepers. My guess is that Sirius or even one of the Potters Imperiused someone to preform the switch and then ordered them to forget. Yes I know the Potters were considered a "Light" family but keep in mind that a. they were in the middle of a war, even good people tend to do rather shady things in a situation like that. b. whille being a light family James WAS best friends with a Black, a decidedly dark family. You dont think that Sirius would have knew certain situations called for dark spells? I bet you anything he would have said something about that to James. And Lily probablly would have agreed. She's a smart lady and a muggleborn. Muggles know well that not everything is black and white.
Anyways, I could ramble on and on. just thought I'd throw my 2 sence in

Now this is a brilliant manipulative Dumbledore fic. You've given him the best punishment anyone could. Now he's lost his magic. HAHA

I find this a fascinating story premise. However, I think I would have Harry contact Amelia Bones to explain what he did and why - how he was just trying to find out whether or not it was possible to force someone else into a binding contract - and then go over everything he had learned about each of the culprits. It would certainly make culling the DEs out of the Ministry and Wizengamot a much less daunting task.

Would Harry have the moral fortitude to write his own name on the contract? Even if he believed himself not intentionally responsible for killing or inflicting harm on anyone else, it would be interesting if he chose to bind himself with the same restrictions he was placing on others against their will. And would stripping a wizard or witch of their magic count as "inflicting harm"? It could be seen as crippling them in the context of the wizarding world, even if it merely brought them down to the same level as 99% of the world's population. Many wizards would have a very difficult time attempting to integrate into non-magical society, or readjusting to life as squibs. I suppose it would depend on how 'harm' was interpreted by the spell - physical harm? Mental harm? Emotional harm?

Very entertaining, also made me cackle quite creepily. ;D

This was pure brilliance!

In response to the previous reviewer: Considering it was used repeatedly by schoolchildren in the books it can't be too difficult. It was used against Cormac McLaggen WANDLESSLY by Hermione Granger in the HBP movie (it didn't specify wandlessly in the book, just that she cast it at him) when she sabotaged him to help Ron get the Keeper position on the Gryffindor Quidditch team. It's also been used by Harry Potter (to get passed Gringotts guards) and Ron Weasley (to cheat on an exam) as well.

A simple confoundus charm? Who said anything about it being simple? Seriously, do you have any actual evidence that it isn't incredibly difficult?

I love how you are being called clever and brilliant. You created a plot hole in your attempt to exploit one.
BCJ explained it himself right after Harry's name was called out of the goblet. Someone confunded the goblet not the parchment. BCJ most likely took Harry's signature from an essay, which Harry signed himself. What this is, is forgery and a lot more illegal. For even in canon, Dumbledore asked if Harry asked anyone to put his name in for him.
Lucius Malfoy was on the board of governors and a friend of Fudge's. Dumbledore had no reason to stop Lucius from entering the school. Dumbledore had no idea Peter was a) alive and b) an animagus. The only one who knew was Remus. BCJ kept Moody alive and most likely invaded his mind to learn everything about him. The hip flask was icing on the cake. Dumbledore had no reason to suspect Polyjuice Potion. Unlike in the movies, voices change as well.
Dumbledore did not set up the Fidelius Charm. Lily was, after all, excellent at Charms and a gifted witch.
In HBP Snape, who was gifted in the mind arts, couldn't invade Draco's mind without force. Dumbledore again would have either played his hand or had no reason to suspect the culprit.
This is not clever nor is it brilliant. This shows an egregious lack in reading comprehension. There are plot holes in canon, but this is a poor attempt at cleverness. Your arrogance makes it worse. The only thing you are missing is tramp Ginny, MoRon, and Mary-sue Hermione.
P.S. Hermione would not have told her parents anything. Even Dean Thomas said he didn't tell his mother what was going on. Considering the fact she modified her parents' memories I doubt her not telling is much of stretch.
Me thinks someone needs to re-read canon.

brilliant. There is one way this could be salvaged, Moody could give participation to tournament paper and say its quiddich tournament then obliviate.
