Nice story. Makes you shed a tear or two about the childhood of Harry. Nice time reading it.

Why have so many people problems with writing Occlumency the right way? It's occluding the mind... occlu-men(s)-cy. Okay, it's a bit confusing that arithmancy as an old word with a certain meaning (all "mancy"s are arts to divine the future, there's not just the magic of divining numbers there's also reading palms and many more... ) looks so similar, but the word itself is not that hard and to start stumbling on the almost pure english part is a bit pathetic. Almost as pathetic as all the guys unable to write Dolores Umbridge correctly.
As for the "reasonable restriction" both it and the monitoring only in muggle living areas are a big case of BS. After all the Statute of Secrecy already makes it illegal to perform in the sight of any uninitiated muggle and your direct family is exempt from the secrecy, so why ban magic in their presence? It won't prevent any more accidentially misspoken mentions of magic than the original law, so it can only be meant to prevent muggleborns from keeping up with the studies. The monitoring on the other side is stupid because any pureblood scion can just as easily make a fault and expose magic as a muggleborn can (and he/she/it wouldn't even certainly know about it as they are mostly clueless about muggles and their traditions, talents and worldviews), take the Weasleys for an example... they might live in a fully magical building with magical adults, but still flying their broom too high or too close to the borders of their property would endanger the secret by exposure to non magical neighbors... yet it would not be truly against this reading of the reasonable restriction nor am i sure that a broom would count as traceable expenditure of magical power...
Ideally ALL kids would be forces to sit through classes about stealthyness and the necessary steps to uphold the statute so no "reasonable restriction" would be needed (Failure in the class examinations could result e.g. in having to leave your wand behind at school). As if magicals were genetically able to be reasonable anyways... Haven't you seen what they call government? Resonable my backside!
Also it's unlikely that the trace vanishes by its own grace... after all a class of Hogwarts students has theoretically a 365 days spread of birthdates and if every potential student gets their letter and meeting with a professor ifnecessary and mandated shortly after turning eleven and being electable for Hogwarts next year's class, the time they have between acquiring their wand and the optimal date for the trace to expedite would vary by a wide margin, how would a spell be so precise as to run for each student for a different time? Also how would second hand wands like Ron's (i think he had Charlie's old wand at first?) or Neville's (Frank Longbottoms old one) get the trace? They did not have anything like the weighing of the wands or the reception desk from the ministry atrium at Hogwarts... maybe they should but there wasn't anything ever mentioned... So either the trace is a fairy tale meant to frighten naive children into compliance with the law or it has to be taken off from the wand manually which opens a whole new can of worms as Harry hasn't had the time or opportunity to get such an appointment at the ministry and would have been traceable for all his odyssey throughout the seventh book.
During the memory restoration scene there is some problem with a broken sentence... he could reach Harry he could reach. Not sure what this was originally supposed to say, but it's nonsensical right now.
night mare - one word nightmare
of friendship and - with friendship
were Emma joined them - where
if their all as bad as - they're
I was brining home - bringing
in my cupboard and feed - fed
Then took away the memory - Then he took
A good, solid chapter turning from the general, abstract discussions of laws and traching methods to the very tangible and real situation at Durskaban. Emotionally quite a ride yet still rooted firmly in a supporting environment for our little hero and thus somewhat comforting.
I liked it.

poetic justice, ever so sweet

Harry can claim Peverell, Potter, Black, Slytherin, everyone knows that but what seemingly everyone looks over is the Gaunt lordship. While a destitute house far worse than the Weasleys its still a noble house with Wizagamont votes. Personally i dont like Harry being heir to the other 3 founders. At least till Rowling clears up if Godric, Helga, and Helena had kids. In my opinion the Ravenclaw line died with Helena when the Bloodly Baron killed her, according to the back story the Baron wanted her for a wife while Helena was more interested in Rowena's Diadem.

Now this Harry is a Harry that wont be wasting time with that foolery that is Divination and COMC, this Harry i see taking Arthimancy to learn spellcraftmanship and Ancient Runes to learn warding and enchantments.
Harry Potter Neville Longbottom Susan Bones Hermione Granger, now thats a true golden tri..o...quadlet lol.
