** I'm pretty sure she wrote it sort of with the intent to have the stories and concepts within them age as the reader did. Describing the first book as a "bedtime story" seems like a bit much, even if only because it's a chapter book. I'd assume any child who's old enough to read the first few books (as well as have the diligence to actually finish them, considering their rather impressive length) would be old enough to handle what happens in later installments.

** But still, Voldy is an utilitarian and Snape is one of the world's best potions' expert and a very competent wizard, probably one of the best duel masters. And knows Hogwarts better than any other of his mooks. Is not the same to use the curse to kill lets see the imbecile of Goyle Sr., that to kill one of the most useful allies he has (even if he suspects he can be a mole).

** Voldemort's never been terribly creative in doling out punishments. If he can't punish someone in a way that benefits him in the process, his next course of action isn't to just forgive them for it and move on - it's to use the Killing Curse and get them out of the way. He's done it plenty of times over lesser things than this. Also, another thing I was questioning was how Voldemort would've been led to believe Snape had gotten over his fondness for Lily.

** To be honest it seems that if you don't work for the Ministry, St. Mungos, Hogwarts or Gringotts, generally you either go to a family business or start one up, we don't really learn much about the wizarding world outside of the POV of a teenage boy, he doesn't care about the econamy and latches on to becoming an auror, despite probably having a promising quidditch career (seriously The boy who lived, teams would be lining up to have a seeker like that) most of the jobs seem to be startups for peoples specific talents outside of the big ones.

** But the punishment of Malfoy was useful to his plans or at least didn't interfere with them. In any case that doesn't take away the other part... how is gonna punish Snape? is not the happiest man around anyway.

** ^ What would give you that idea? He left Lucius Malfoy to sit in Azkaban for a year as punishment for failing to collect the prophecy and forced his teenage son into his plan to kill his most powerful adversary, among countless other things - he seems like ''exactly'' the type of person who would punish his underlings for their failures and mistakes, even if they were due to extraneous or unforeseen circumstances.

***And now we know things were not so bad. Yes the movie does show the US government to be very authoritarian, have death penalty and racial segregation (and those are sadly things that many Europeans do think the US has/had) but for the rest the American characters were as lovely as any other.

*** Still, you are giving more importance than is show about the houses and how much define a person's school life. As mentioned before other than probably have the fellow house members in the Wizards equivalent of a Facebook group, it dosen't seem to really affect their friendships, career choices or marriages. Even during school year we see them having friendships and romantic relationships inter-house.
