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.

Hey there.

There are few stories that actually completely capture me after the first sentence, but this your story was one of those very rare ones that do just that.

The first few sentences made me smile, because I just saw it all happening. Like the introduction sequence of a movie.

And I loved the conversations! For me conversations are so hard to write, but yours are just perfect.

I am using the word "just" a lot, don't I?

Anyways, don't think it's vanity to ask for reviews ;)
