So, don't expect plot. Don't expect updates. Don't expect much of anything. This is just for fun. So have fun, dammit. Or else.
A Brief Summary of Every Harry Potter Fanfiction Ever Written
In Which Shopping Solves All Harry's Problems
"Merlin, girl, I'm beat." Hedwig looked up from the scrap of newspaper she was pooping on—coincidently a photo of esteemed Minister for Magic Cornelius Fudge—and blinked at Harry. He hauled the last pair of shopping bags through the doorway and threw them on the pile.
"Hoot?" Hedwig inquired. She'd been waiting in this Leaky Cauldron suite for hours, and hoped there were fresh mice somewhere in Harry's mound of purchases.
"Yes, we're staying here. No one would think to look for me in the only hotel in the Wizarding World," Harry explained. "Besides, if I had to haul this stuff any further from Diagon Alley my arms would give out."
"Exactly. Want to see what I got?"
"Hoot." Harry, being a parselmouth rather than a hootingmouth, mistook the phrase "not likely" for "I'd love too!"
Hedwig, being an owl and not a wizard, mistook the giant scroll he was unrolling for an encyclopedia rather than a receipt. She was disabused of this notion when Harry read it aloud:

Thank you for shopping with us!
Protagonist's Emporium—for all your Dark Lord-hunting needs!
"Oh, I know the check'll bounce," Harry agreed, "but hopefully not before Voldemort surrenders."
"Well, I've never failed to beat him after similar shopping trips, have I?"
"So it stands to reason he'll just give up now before he gets his arse handed to him. He's not that inept, right?"
"I'm glad you agree."
Just then an evil-looking owl—complete with Dark Mark—tapped on the window. Harry took the note and the owl flew away.
I'm giving up now before I get my arse handed to me. I'm not that inept. I'm going to go live among the muggles, inspiring fear and revulsion wherever I go.
Sincerely, Lord V.
"John Smith, Insurance Salesman"
And everyone who wasn't a muggle trying to buy insurance lived happily ever after. The End.
