Ah, we need more of this. Of course Harry is planning to protect all the slaves, although some of them are presumably dangerous and will still need some form of containment. This is an interesting and original take on the Harry-buys-Snape-to-protect-him theme - Harry is doing the Right Thing by Snape but in this AU timeline where he hasn't seen Snape's memories, he still doesn't actually like him and doesn't want to talk to him, so Snape doesn't know what's going on.
The elves are also very interesting and well done, especially the dialogue about punishment. Few people notice that despite his harshness to prisoners, Barty Crouch Snr *wasn't* a harsh master to Winky, but instead had pretty-much made her mistress of his household, as you correctly show her. His anger with her was cruel but it wasn't the anger of a control-freak thwarted but of trust betrayed, after she had nagged him into taking his son to the game and had then wimped out of the arrangement she herself had insisted on, with near-disastrous consequences.
My only quibble is that, as usual in fanfiction, this setup grossly exaggerates the extent to which the Dursleys abused Harry (it's established in the books that he wasn't beaten, was usually fed the same as the rest of the family, his cupboard was the size of a small room and wasn't locked, there's no evidence he was routinely given chores etc etc) - but I guess you need that fanon version of the Dursleys to make the plot work, and in any case it's a given that the Prophet would exaggerate the Dursleys' moderate physical neglect and severe emotional abuse of Harry into something more melodramatic anyway.

It's sad that Snape doesn't recognize Harry's good intentions and that Dumbmledore could think such evil of Harry. I know you said this was going to be short but did you intend to leave this cliffhanger?

It's so sad that Snape can't recognize the good that Harry is doing or that Dumbledore would think such e

oo i am intrigued. Looking forward to the next chapter.
| Silverstargirl chapter 4 . 4/15/2014
Oh, I so want to know what happens next...! Sadly, I know that there is little hope of me ever knowing. -pouts- Oh well, I will just have to assume that Severus misunderstands and Harry, who knows what it is like to be treated like a slave, is actually trying to save the former death eaters. Bloody hero-complex strikes again! :D
