Loving this and hope you continue to write it soon.

I am really beginning to detest Richard Granger and Mrs Weasley for their over the top reactions to Harry and Hermione. Mrs W is NOT their mother and therefore has NO legal reason to be claiming any such titles as mother. Richard acts like he does not trust his very smart daughter. Of course he says he doesnt trust Harry - but he also does not even KNOW Harry.
Great story so far!

Of course that is not the definition of Karma (cause and effect, look it up if you want to know more).
Also, in chapter 17 Dumbledore said "Do simple words hurt you so much Harry?"
It seems that, in Dumbledore's typical hypocrisy, an insult to Dumbledore is much worse than an insult to someone else.

Just a minor detail, the Alohomora spell to open the door to the Cerberus is not that advanced. According to Harry Potter Wiki it is part of The Standard Book of Spells, Grade 1. So it might been more advanced than where they were in that book at the time they first came to the door, but it is a first year spell.

I realize that you need it for the plot, but walking or taking the bus is dangerous, especially if the driver or other people on the bus recognize Harry. If Harry and Hermione don't want to reveal that they can apparate, some adults should take them.
Also, what Dumbledore told them at the end of the chapter was not really urgent, it could have easily waited till they got home. So it follows the point of that talk was that he could get them away at the end without them speaking to Amelia.

What is it with not being ready to live together? Next school year, Harry will be 16, Hermione will be 17. That is old enough to marry in Scotland. Mentally they are two years older, 18 and 19. Do they want to wait till they are 40?
Even if for some reason they don't want to have sex at the moment, they did enjoy sleeping in the same bed, and at times didn't for the sole reason that they didn't want others to find out that they are not in their rooms. So having married quarters is better than sneaking to the Room of Requirement at night, especially considering they are prefects.
Sending the Dursleys to Australia with modified memories might be a nice revenge, but to do it for their protection?
First, if Dumbledore can erect wards for the Grangers, he can erect wards for the Dursleys. If they are not good enough, are the Dursleys really more important than the Grangers? And would he openly state that to Hermione?
The Dursleys obviously didn't want to leave, even after to situation was explained to them. What about their free will? How is the result of what was done to them different from using the Imperius on them? This just proves that their fear of magic was justified. Some day some wizard might come along and force them to do things they don't want to do, and now it happened.
The same of course applies to canon. The only reason for Hermione to modify her parents' memories is if they didn't want to leave. So she basically decides that their wishes are not important and she has the right to use magical means to force them. I wouldn't be surprised that they are angry if Hermione should ever bother to find them and reverse their memories. On the other hand, that attitude is easily fixed with magic... And modifying their memory in no way protects her parents, nor does it protect Hermione. If they had been willing to go, they could have gone with their memories, so the only reason is to force them.

"I am Headmaster of this school and you must show the proper respect to me and my professors."
The proper answer for this is: "Do simple words hurt you so much?" (Dumbledore, in chapter 17)
"I hope once those damn blood wards fail, he'll stop trying to get control of me."
These blood wards, whether they exist or not, are just one tool to control Harry. Dumbledore will never stop trying to control Harry, not even after Dumbledore is dead.

"Do you believe him?" Hermione asked.
"I think so. It fits everything we know."
Yes, it fits what they know, which it better should. But it does not make sense.
First, telling Hagrid something that is supposed to be secret is an obvious mistake. So if he really did that, than Dumbledore is not to be trusted, at least not without questioning, because he has proven that he tends to make mistakes. Making mistakes in itself is not unusual, but Dumbledore insists that everybody should trust him without questioning, and that coupled with his great influence is dangerous.
Then, after Hagrid already let the secret out, he decides to modify Minerva's memories. Why? It could be explained if he didn't want anybody to know where Harry would live. But not only is Minerva not known to spill secrets, she still remembers the address. Not only that, also Hagrid knows, not to mention the ministry, where Death Eaters work or can bribe employees. So the supposed real story is that Minerva was sent there to watch the Dursleys and see if Death Eaters are there. She alone would probably not have been able to actually repel an attack. So she watched the Dursleys and saw Dumbledore set up the wards. The modified memory is that she watched the Dursleys and Dumbledore set up the wards at some other unspecified time, not while she was watching. How is this supposed to be helpful?
Dumbledore admits that the Durlseys were extremely reluctant to take Harry. He convinces (or coerces) them by promising them protection. As Harry correctly points out, he was often outside of the wards, and no Death Eaters came for him, so they certainly wouldn't have come for the Dursleys. In fact, without Harry living there, no magical records would point to them, and the purebloods wouldn't know how to find them. So Dudley was at risk not despite this protection, but because of this protection. But let's consider he convinced the Dursleys that this protection is important, and they get it for taking Harry. Then he removes that information from their minds. Why? What is the danger of them knowing that they are protected? Erasing that memory is a recipe for disaster. Suppose you have some kind of business agreement, for example an employment contract. You agree that you work, and in exchange you get money, or protection. Now this compensation is erased from your mind, but you still have to work. How would you feel thinking you are a slave and have to work for free? There is no need to invoke subconscious feelings and psychology for that. They had been tricked into an agreement and the compensation they get has been removed from their minds for no reason.
I'm disappointed that Harry and especially Hermione find this remotely plausibly.
