- Harry Dursley.......chuckle. Here's hoping that Vernon, Petunia, and Marge were standing or sitting on soft surfaces when they got that bit of information! Then again, if they fainted and/or had strokes it's no more than they deserve! Thanks for the vignette Dr. T!
(#) markblaine 2008-12-21This was good. I enjoyed Dudley's personality, it seemed real. I liked the look at the wizarding world's treatment of muggleborn, given the circumstances with Tom, it was behind times. And I especially enjoyed the fact that even though Harry saved the world, some people still disliked him. Because that is reality.
- I loved this. Dudley was well-thought out and Daisy came off realistic. Had no problem with you killing off Ron. The story was great, but it would be nice to see maybe a little epilouge 12 years later with the kids and find out Vernon and Petunia reacted to the news that their grandchild was magical.
(#) whatareyouevensaying 2008-12-21Very good oneshot. My only qualm is with Dudley calling Vernon "Daddy", which he never did as a boy in canon. Rather than make him seem spoiled, as calling his Mum "Mummy" does, it makes him sound excessively feminine.
If you ever decided to write about the next generation at Hogwarts, this would be the story to springboard from.
(#) Wonderbee31 2008-12-21Great fic here, and really enjoyed how you managed to again bring life to the characters that JKR was unfortunately unable to do imo. You have made a Dudley and his wife who are human, and made Petunia more than the cartoon character she was in canon, as well as showing a Harry who is happy and at peace with himself, if he is able to admit that he can't make everyone happy. Well done!
