Quote:The other agents stared at him with incredulity, before one spoke to a smirking Harry, "My apologies, Mr. Potter, but such a tale was somewhat farcical."
Harry shrugged, "Don't worry about it, I'm used to people not believing me when I say something.":End Quote
Sounds a lot like people should be listening to Harry and believing everything he says just because he is Harry Potter and nothing else.
That sounds a lot like the Dumbledore in this story, doesn't it?
Dumbledore feels that everyone should take his word at face value and not question him. Harry and the rest are criticising him for it. And yet, Harry implies that people should give him the same treatment?
That's rather hypocritical of him.
I agree that he was telling the truth as far as Voldemort returning and the Chamber of Secrets is concerned, but what proof has he shown in both circumstances? Until Voldemort came out in the open and until Harry gave his interview to Skeeter for the Quibbler, there was no proof or reason enough for people to believe him. And neither the Americans nor the Greengrasses have seen the basilisk or the sword.
So who does Harry think he is to get into a snit because people who don't know him don't believe him when he hasn't given enough cause to support his claims?!
The only difference at this point between Harry telling the Americans that he killed a basilisk with a sword and Dumbledore telling Podmore that Harry is turning dark is that Harry was telling the truth. Otherwise… it's just Dumbledore's word and Harry's word

I don't get this.
The ministry are shown in a contradictory light in this chapter.
On one hand, they are so incompetent that the authorisation to bring in a magical device is only needed from the Muggles who have no idea or clue about the purpose and function of said object.
And I'm not sure about their plan of getting that object into British soil. Sure the president of the USA has given his assurances to the muggle PM of Great Britain, but in politics one does not trust that easily. Especially a foreign head of state. No PM or president in his right mind would allow for any object to be brought in without full disclosure and understanding. Which in the end would mean that the magical government will get involved because the details of the object need to be verified by the experts.
And yet on the other hand the ministry is so competent that they can hold trials in a jiffy with little forewarning. I mean, WOW! Someone's accused in a trial and the whole thing is processed so fast that before the day is over, there has been an FIR (First Investigative Report) filed, evidence found and processed, witnesses tracked down and prepped, and the accused arrested, tried, and sentenced!
And to top it all off, another person who is implicated is impeached and fined!
I've yet to see any other judiciary system that works so fast!
So if they are so competent, won't they know of the classified magical object being brought into Britain the minute the PM gets wind of it?

You're obsessed with commas!
Most of the commas you've put in this chapter aren't necessary and disrupt the flow of the story.
Think of a comma as a short pause in speech and read a sentence out loud (that's mainly because commas ARE short pauses in speech).
See if it feels natural.
You will find that most of the commas aren't needed.
And since when is "board member" a title? Not everything has to be a title, you know. Davis is a board member, yes. But that is his JOB. It is not who he is.

Umbridge is not a "secretary" she is the Senior Undersecretary. There is a difference between the two. A major difference. The former is a person who would screen an important person's calls and do other such stuff from a desk just outside said important person's office. The latter, on the other hand, is a senior civil servant in the UK. You yanks know undersecretaries as principal assistants to a member of the cabinet. Basically, it's a very important position and markedly different to a secretary.

Why would you think that the Express reaches London by afternoon?
It reaches Hogwarts by NIGHT in time for dinner. And it's travelling the same damn distance. So why would it reach any earlier than dinner time?
I would get that the sun would be up when the train reaches London because it would be summer which means that the sun will only set by 10pm latest.
By the way, the only reason Neville was still standing was pure dumb luck. There was no skill displayed. Hell, he MISSED a Death Eater and hit Harry with a disarming spell before his nose was broken and wand snapped.
Actually, come to think of it, the only reason those kids survived was a) because of the prophecy orb which they were treating with care, and b) because they, as adults, knew that they were dealing with schoolchildren and acted accordingly. I'm not saying that they were being merciful or nice. Just that they didn't think much of those kids. And seeing how easily Hermione went down when Dolohov got pissed off, I can believe that the Death Eaters were quite dangerous and that the kids were in over their heads.
If it wasn't for the Order, Harry and his friends would either be dead or worse.
And that's the reality of the situation. NONE of them were a match for those Death Eaters.

I would expect Hermione to automatically cry "that's barbaric" when hearing of the way inheritance works in the Wizarding World. I mean, being a firebrand for every single cause without gathering much information is more of her forte than Harry's!
I don't see Harry making such a thoughtless idiotic comment.
But it is good to see him being shot down, even if it was done in a polite manner.
Call it what you want, but in the end that is a part of a society's culture and tradition. Also, it does not involve in active bloodshed or oppression of any kind (especially considering that women in the wizarding world are pretty capable, and happen to have ample opportunity to hold any job they feel like which means that there isn't much of a gender bias there). So nobody has any right to give snap moral judgements. Especially snotty fifteen year old kids.

I could see Both Molly and Ron becoming the next Dark Power to get revenge on Harry Potter.
