(#) Blaze_Stryker 2013-12-13A question comes to mind; If you can get the supplies, why not do practical Potions homework in the summer?
THERE'S NO WAND WAVING!! None. At all. Snape's speech back at the start of first freakin' year says so, for crying out loud!
Squibs like Filch and Figg can do potions and use them. Hell, Figg raises Kneazles!
If Harry found out about Arabella, she could get the supplies and he could do as Severus Snape and Lily Evans did; get really good on personal time in summers.
Author's responseI actually agree with your point about doing practical Potions homework in a general sense, but I don't think it would work for Harry.
Like I said in the story, I highly doubt the Dursleys would allow him to do that in their house, and I can't see him being able to go to Mrs. Figg's house to do something like that. Don't forget, she's a Dumbledore plant, so I'm pretty sure that she has her own marching orders in regards to keeping him isolated and ignorant.
Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if the only reason he'd gotten away with leaving the Dursley property in OOTP was because Dung is a piece of shit and wasn't there to keep him from leaving.

Now the ol' brainless bearded wonder blunder I can understand. He's absolutely senile! But the rest of the Roast Chicken Club are way younger and some of them actually know Harry personally. Those that don't should at least talk to those that do and truly listen to them instead of the senile old goat molester. I think it's either a family thing or he framed his older brother.
Author's responseThis was basically showing that despite everything they've seen and done, most of the wizarding world, and especially the Order, are too blinded by Dumbledore and his mystique. Until it's been blindly shoved into their faces, usually when they're about to be killed or something, most don't realize that hey, maybe Dumbledore fucks up too.
Harry's friends on the other hand, have spent enough time with him to know that despite Dumbledore's assurances, his assumptions don't quite line up with what they've witnessed first hand.
Sorry, that should have been blatantly shoved in their faces.
