Hi! I liked your story; I think what you did with Petunia was great, showing various explanations for why she acts the way she does towards Harry (which in itself is varied from stern to spiteful to grudgingly acceptive). I also liked how you handled the prompt, sticking it in at the end very unobtrusively.

Just a few things:

second paragraph, third sentence: She didn't mind BEING tired.
around when Petunia and Vernon start talking: "She still hadn’t told her husband the sorted details of her sister’s life." I think the word you're looking for is sordid, not sorted. Unless you really mean various, but I think sordid would be more interesting and Petunia-ish.

Great! Good luck!

Author's Response: Thanks so much for the compliments. I'm glad you liked it. I really do believe that Petunia has felt an array of emotions towards her nephew over the years, even if most of them have never been expressed.

For the tecnical stuff, thank you for pointing out the errors. I am off to correct them.

Thanks so much for the review.

Very nice. :) I liked the picture this painted of Petunia. To me, she seemed nicer than she seems from Harry's POV. Of course, Harry doesn't like her much... 10/10


Author's Response: Thank you.

A lot of people are probably nicer than they appear in Harry's POV. ;) Just my opinion, but he seems pretty biased, pretty often.

That was really good, it helps to explain, in one way as I am sure there are many ways, why she hated Harry so much.

Author's Response: Thank you. I'm glad you liked it. And I agree that there are many reasons for Petunia to hate Harry.

I adored this story, my dear! I must say, you've done it again, hehe. I have never read a story written from Petunia's POV or for that matter, one that centered around the Dursleys. I also must admit that I never thought I could read something that made me feel sorry for the Dursleys but you've done it. (at least Petunia.) I loved how you allowed us to see her thoughts and the internal conflicts going on as far as her feelings towards what happened. I think my favorite part by far was the end where Petunia told Dudders that Harry was his cousin and he spit up on her! That had me chuckling when I read it here at work. :-)

I envy that imagination of yours and I'd love to know the farm that your plot bunny came from as mine seems to be bi-polar lately. He doesn't know which way is up!
Good Job Elle, once again!

Thanks so much for the review and I'm glad that you liked the story. I have written a couple of other fice with Petunia and I must admit that I have started grow fond of her.

Thanks again, dear!

Oooh, I like this! It's an interesting point of view to come from - I've often wondered what happened to the Dursleys immediately after Harry was left with them.

Eagerly awating the next instalment,

Author's Response: *smile* Glad you liked it. I really do feel sorry for Petunia sometimes.

But there is no next installment. Sorry, this was a one shot.

Thanks so much for the review, though.
