I've always had difficulty with the various contrivances, like you've shown here, that have wizards sort-of-but-not-really flying. Why not go the whole way? First off - Rowling did, with Snape and Voldemort flying around in DH. Secondly, why not use a levitation spell on oneself? Or another spell crafted just for flying?

Wandless magic now? I was really surprised that Rowling didn't do the same when she showed Harry doing a 'lumos' spell while not holding his wand at the beginning of OotP. But she wrote a lot of things that she ignored and never used again. Your Harry is already a lot more powerful/able than the one in canon.

I like the chapter. Kreacher rehabilitated and working for Harry & Ginny and Harry now working for the Auror Division and Kingsley. A really very normal life for Harry although he will always be way above and beyond any normality that might be cited. But we all know that normal is just the median average of every one or thing tested. It would be nice if Harry were to begin to understand this.

This is quite a change from all the stuff that has been going on. Of course Harry had to pass a "test" before he could start work as an Auror. It stands to reason that he would have a higher score than even Kingsley. A broken ankle wasn't good but he managed to get through even with that. His desire to "be normal" just isn't going to happen though. I'm glad Ginny is giving him a new challenge that he just might want to do. It was great of Ron and Hermione to fix us Grimmald place for them. That was a big help. I look forward to more of this story. Thanks for writing. pms

The plot around Harrays and Ginnys home and where that will be makes me curious.

Going back to Godrics Hollow would close a circle for Harry. It will be interestenig to see what obstacles they will encounter.

Another good chapter, i´m looking forward to the next one.

Not bad. A couple of points, though:

First, I don't see where it is mentioned that the obstacle course is called the Grinder. The first place that term appears in the chapter, aside from the title, is when Harry is wondering if being an Auror will be worth going through it. Did a comment get dropped somewhere during the editing process?

Second, on the renaming of the house - to the best of my knowledge the house doesn't actually have an existing name. It is referred to in the books as "number twelve, Grimmauld Place", much as the Dursleys' residence is referred to as "number four, Privet Drive"; Grimmauld Place is the name of the street where the house is, not of the house itself. People just use the street name as shorthand, because it's the only address on that street the people they're talking to are going to be interested in.

That doesn't mean you have to drop or drastically alter the naming conversation, though; all it would need is a lead-in to the effect of "we've always called it Grimmauld Place because of the address, but that doesn't really fit the new decor; we should give it a proper name", and it would work just fine.
