Nice little story...could be expanded to novel-length with some details of some events, but it is quite satisfying at this length, too. Thanks for posting it!

Wow, I was on board with what was happening until Sirius was fined for escaping from an illegal imprisonment! He was never convicted of a crime, so he wasn’t a legal prisoner. On top of that, fining Harry and Hermione for helping Sirius escape when he wasn’t a convict? Ridiculous. I lost faith in Madame Bones after that. She’s as bad as the rest of a corrupt Ministry.
I was also pretty disappointed with the "responsible" adults, who saw nothing wrong with asking a teenager to execute Voldemort.

My first thought after reading the letter from Dumbledore is that you have no idea what an apprentice is, because the headmaster of a school would have zero room for input. It is a legal contract from one person to another there might be an arbiter if negotiation was requested, otherwise the meddling fool can drop head first into the black lake for all his opinion matters.
The Dursleys couldn't charge him rent anyway without a renters agreement and he would have to be over the age of eighteen.
So of course, the next thing in the story is a contract that violates Harry's rights, nicely played.
He quickly packed the items, and chose to add his notebooks that were under the Fidelius Charm.
I'm sorry, explain this to me why a high energy secrecy spell that buries a secret in someone's soul would be used on notebooks? How would that even work, when both previous uses have been on buildings.
But you can be assured that we will come and get him if we have one inkling that you or a member of your family is abusing him."
Petunia shirked back.
"How will you know?"
"We have ways, Mrs. Dursley," Ollivander said.
I'm so glad that this Harry isn't clever enough to think this through or he might have realized that Dumbledore did nothing to protect him and try to kill the man.
"Lesson one, magic can deceive you.
Wrong on every level, lesson one in every path is to question everything.
Harry nodded and then moved chairs and Ollivander took the chair that Harry vacated while looking at the books on the desk.
"What are those, and why do you have them under a version of the Fidelius Charm?"
Unless that contract included a disclosure clause about the Fidelius in specific Ollivander would be unable to perceive their existence.
I was unable to finish reading as the pattern was a little too close to the "Gringotts Tells Harry He Inherits Everything" plot line.
Sorry that your story makes the snark in me come out so easily.

I enjoyed the story. I wonder what happened to all of Harry's wealth as no children were mentioned. Thanks for writing. W.

Wow. That story doesn't have anything in it I haven't read dozens of times before. While, at times, that might be excused, if the story is good, or captivating, but this is not the case this time. All those cliches are just collected together and narrated in a dry, uninteresting manner, which doesn't encourage reading it much. To make thing worse, there are several deus-ex-machina that carry the story along in pivotal moments for the sole reason of saving you from actually having to think up anything original.
In short, disappointing.

Superb lovely story! Highly creative!

Interesting; though too conveniently tied up. Needed some angst. I like some of the concepts you introduced and hope that you find a way to write a much more in-depth story using them.
