A good prank is to put plastic wrap over a door frame. Or a sicker/funny note sticky side up on a chair.

I like that you've moved the Heir of Slytherin suspicion to Draco- I think it's more fitting because there's not as much negativity but he doesn't like it.

now i think when nick gets petrified draco should pull his head all the way off for him. the reason being draco was at his death day party so likely overheard about nick not being allowed in the headless games an decides to fix the problem while hopefully getting a full time spy in the castle and who would ever think about the ghost of the lions working for a snake. an what about all these painting in hogwarts, none of them see a 60 foot long snake strolling down the hall? an yes i know the snake used the pipes to get around the problem with that is if it is that easy to get into the chamber of secrets threw just any old pipe then why the security in the bathroom enterance? if i can just have the pipes open just anyplace i want so the snake can just pop out and pop back in at will why the password protected doors? that password protection only covers the one door from mertles bathroom. from the way is sounds harry could just walk up to any wall with pipes behind it and say open in parsel and a hole into the pipes would open.

now why don't people use magical oaths more often? draco could easily use one to prove he is not the one opening the chamber of secrets. in cannon harry could have used them to prove draco way the one who always started the fight and thereby make snape look like the fool everyone knows him to be. dumbledore always seemed to back up snapes punishments of students when a simple magical oath would prove snape wrong. an you can not say well harry does not know about oaths his best friend ron is a pureblood so would know all about them and likely gladly take an oath if it made snape look like a fool in front of the whole school.

now as far as muggleborns go and getting jobs i think they should start their own wizarding world. have them start their own little towns run by them and owned by them. if muggleborns are as numerous as some authors write to the point were they are about 1/3 of the population then in a few years they should greatly outnumber the rest. the reason for this is because muggleborns do not need to fear having squib children as the purebloods do so they can have 5 or 6 instead of 1 or 2 at most. so if 2 muggleborns marry and have 6 kids that is 3 times as many muggleborn if this is carried out by all 100 muggleborns that are at hogwarts at any given time. this generation we have 100 muggleborns, next generation we would have 300 muggleborns, the generation after that 900 muggleborns at hogwarts at any given time an after that 900 becomes 2700. an with the purebloods just fighting to stay even with their population and not allow it to get smaller each generation the purebloods will still only have 100 students at hogwarts at any given time. so in about 4 generations 2700 muggleborns to 100 purebloods to maybe 500 halfbloods at hogwarts at any given time.

in 6th and 7th year at hogwarts they teach silent casting of spells and to do the spell without the wand movements so how hard would it be to kill dumbledore while at the ministry with a reducto to the back of the head. an with wizards no one is gone to think GUN when someone pulls a wand since everyone uses wands for everything. you need to clean dirt of your cloak? use a spell. you need to make notes about something? use a spell on your quill. you need to freshen your breath? use a spell. you need to fix your hair or makeup? use a spell. you need to send someone a note or message? use a spell. wizards likely use a 100 spells a day or more without even thinking about it.

harry could have dobby clean out all of the not really dark items in the come and go room also know as the room of requirements and fix any items that are broken and sell them all. since this room has been collecting junk for a thousand years then these items should be worth at least a million galleons if not much more, the books alone should be worth that much. he can then have that million galleons melted down and sold on the muggle gold market and turn it into about 250 million pounds sterling or sell it on the american market for about 380 million dollars then change the american dollars into pounds sterling and it would become about 300 million pounds sterling.

also have dobby go to the trash demention since wizards use some sort of banishing charm on their trash cans to get rid of garbage it has to all end up someplace. so how about it end up in the trash demention, have dobby go there and clean it up and use his magic to fix up the items and sell them, then take the gold and change it into muggle money. think about it if the wizards have been using this same demention for trash for 500 years or more the amount of old parchment, ink wells, quills, and books dobby just needs to remove the ink from the parchment or the newspaper and put it into the old ink wells then we have fresh blank paper to sell to the newspapers and fresh parchment to sell as well as quills that are good as new and new bottles of ink. these items alone should make harry several million galleons which would become billions in pounds sterling. an any of the items who's protection charms have failed those things have likely rotted away and turned to dust which is dirt and we can sell dirt too. an the best part is you are giving dobby a job that will likely keep him out of your hair for years since people are always throwing stuff away, unless you need him for he will be busy for years to come. harry could have dobby clean out all of the not really dark items in the come and go room also know as the room of requirements and fix any items that are broken and sell them all. since this room has been collecting junk for a thousand years then these items should be worth at least a million galleons if not much more, the books alone should be worth that much. he can then have that million galleons melted down and sold on the muggle gold market and turn it into about 250 million pounds sterling or sell it on the american market for about 380 million dollars then change the american dollars into pounds sterling and it would become about 300 million pounds sterling.

an as far as getting into the shops seeing as they are unlikely to buy gold coins from a kid use glamor charms to change harry's looks and make him look older and use magic to create a fake i.d.

an as far as getting this done without anyone finding out, well there should be about 50 wizarding countries in the world if not more and at least one magical bank in each one so just spread the money out threw different banks an countries like america likely have several banks. buy a million galleons here, a million galleons there an if there are 100 goblin banks world wide then that would be 100 million galleons just by going to each bank once. 100 million galleons would become 38 billion american dollars which would become 30 billion pounds sterling which would become 6 billion galleons. there an you can hire some of your hit wizards early on and have them do some of the money transfers for you.

an how would harry know about the price of gold? well his uncle of course who would whine about not having enough money to invest in gold do to his worthless nephew costing him so much money to feed and cloth.

we have yet to even think about winky as well who harry could have use the room of requirements to bring up the oldest and rarest books known to wizard kind an make copies of these books and sell them off for a million galleons each, an yes i know they are only copies but when there are only 2 or 3 of a book in the world even a copy becomes worth a lot.

an we have yet to talk about land. i figure harry would own about half a dozen houses with large tracks of land around them. so if you hire house elves to build houses the muggle way but use magic to make the work go faster you could build 100,000 houses per property in no time. then you split the selling cost of the houses with the goblins who you have overseeing the job. so if the house sells for 300,000 pounds sterling that is about 100,000 for you and 100,000 for the goblins and 100,000 for supplies. so if 5 properties are done this way you now have 500,000 homes for sale which will make your share 50 billion pounds sterling before taxes. an if you keep ownership of the land and charge monthly land rent of 500 pounds a month that would be 250 million pounds a month in rent or about 2 billion pounds a year rent after taxes. an how are these lands big enough for 100,000 homes plus roads is simple expansion charms are used on the land but with that being the only magic involved it should not be enough to short out muggle items.

a key to pulling off pranks is to have a large group involved so you can have 3 or 4 people every time a prank is pulled step up and swear an oath that they were not involved in the prank and you keep switching up who those people are every time. that way if dumbledore tries to break up the group by calling out harry and his group for the prank in front of the whole school harry, draco, granger and susan can swear the oath an then harry can really push dumbledore's button with." do the rest of my friends REALLY need to swear this oath as well and make you look an even bigger fool in front of the whole school, sir. an before you even think about detention i do not do detentions, an if you try to force me i sue for kidnapping. so your only option left is to kick me out an we both know you would not kick out the head of ancient and noble house who is also the-boy-who-lived the bad press i would bring down would end up closing this place down."

you have to get across the idea that the students have the power not the teachers. no students, no school. so you can not threaten to just toss out whole groups of students for not going to detention otherwise you have no students. so the threat is empty with no real plan to ever follow threw with it. so as long as the students do not care about house points the teachers hold no power over them.

how you get harry and his group out of trouble should someone start to get wise to them is have it so harry can swear a magical oath that he did not do any spells involved in this prank, an that is the key is the wording of the oath.

well as far as pranks go a random animal changing prank could be set up on a doorway to go off at random times and random animals as well as randomly pick who gets hit and who does not. with a setup like that it could take months if not longer for the trigger to be found. you could also do the same setup with something such as personality reversal were nice people become mean and mean people become nice but of course that would need to read the mind of the person since you would not want nice people going mean. now of course those would be higher level spells something lower ranked would may be hair changing color or skin changing color with the same random setups. an of course you make it look like a prefect or an older student had to be the one to do this since the spells would be place on the stairs inside different common room by sneaking in with other students under harry's cloak and NEVER take credit for a prank by saying something stupid such as "this prank was brought to you by the new muraders" which is a dead give away as to who did it, you may as well just sign your names. an going around using your code names in public like raven for harry is just as stupid. now if you want you can prank ron weasley such as switching out his ink for muggle invisable ink so there is no magical trace anything has been done. so that the teacher can in fact check the blank test he or she got back for traces of magic and will only find standard spells on the paper that were put there when it was made. an you can work out a way to get ron setup to get busted pulling some of your pranks, how you do that is glamor charms to make yourself look like ron so he get seen throwing dung bombs at snape and then running away that way ron gets two weeks detention for attacking a teacher. you could have ron flunk second year twice then finally pass then flunk third year twice then finally pass so that ron is starting fourth year when you all have left hogwarts. an of course at the end of this year when dumbledore tries to just pass ron to third year even thou he flunked the teachers threaten to leave hogwarts if he does pass ron since he passed ron from first to second year even thou he flunked the classes. an you can always summon ron's books out of his bookbag and sneak them back up to his dorm so if he claims he had them and the teacher takes him to his dorm to check they are found in his school trunk. an ron would be lucky to pass any classroom work without granger to help him.

how you show snape to be a good guy in this story is have draco mention that snape was brewing potions to cure his house students from curses they got at home from their deatheater parents as lessons on how the different curses work and that you need to learn to fight threw the pain if you want to survive in a duel.
