This never fails to put a smile on my face. Hysterical dialogue and a sweet ending, I love it, thank you!

You've hit one of my pet peeves, as I agree with Severus, in essence, that JKR's Western Wizarding world is a parasite on the Muggle world.
It's a fraction of the size, tries to stay hidden, takes from the host without giving anything back, and does damage to the host.
Theft of people: Muggleborns are taken into the Wizarding world, and no-one is returned to the Muggle world.
Theft of ideas: Wizards did not invent steam power, trains, brooms, carpets, stadiums, castles, iron, cauldrons, candles, indoor plumbing, and so on (I have little doubt wizards cast water-creation and Vanishing charms inside houses... but actual pipes to carry water? No, not plausible). Yet wizards take these ideas and use them... but prevent any cross-pollination even in the very few instances wizards come up with something instead of stealing it.
Theft of thought: Obliviation is an abombination; Eldrich Asylum (obsidian-fox) has a short treatise on this).
Tax evasion (i.e. taking advantage of Muggles keeping the streets and city intact and working properly, without contributing): we'll take #12 Grimmauld place... did they actually pay the Muggle Inheritance tax on it? I doubt it. Did they pay the council tax (introduced in 1993, just about at the start of the series) annually on it, either the Blacks or Harry?
Murder: Muggles killed by Wizards, without any means for Muggle justice to be served.
Destruction of property: (the collapsed bridge, for example) Again, without recompense or means for Muggle justice to be served.
All of this is part of a pattern of the Wizarding parasite gorging itself on the Muggle host, concerned solely for the parasite's welfare, not at all for the host's.
For amusement, imagine a first rate Muggle military exterminating the Wizarding world with supersonic weapons guided by radar, IR and thermal sensors, assisted with anti-magical movement artifacts/widgets/enchanted items (pebbles, say) (canon support: Nagini could see Arthur through his invisibility cloak... presumably because many snakes "see" IR/heat).

Ok... That could be really good story- I liked idea of magical tables, but I must confess that I hate all this Lily-love thing! Even mentioning her makes me sick. So sorry, but I won't read it.
