Love your hermione--independent, compassionate, strong-willed.
I especially like and agree with these observations:
"... whenever I point out that some Muggle things, like stitches or tellies, work rather well, [mages] simply brush it off, as if it's somehow not good enough for them.
"...it's Saturday, and I think I'll wear my plain blue shirt and pyjama bottoms. And the first person who makes a smart remark gets a smack in the head, Muggle style."
You go, girl!
