That was really good. I dig all your one-shots; they are so well-characterized and insightful. You really should write more of these.

I sense a trend in your stories. they are all about things I would like to write fics on if I had the time or patience to sit down and write. this was an excellent, excellent portrayal of petunia. it felt so real! I've always found the dursleys fascinating--and I love reading fanfiction about them--and the bits about lily and petunia in the 7th book were some of my favorites. I love what you wrote.

You made me cry! I have small children, so this is a part of the story that I can barely stand to consider... the neglect that Harry suffered growing up with the Dursleys. You really brought the Dursleys to life in this piece. Very well done!

Very good story. Great lead-up to all the abuse and neglect we know Harry suffered at their hands. I especially enjoyed how you put in the bit about the toast that Dudley stole - setting up their relationship and Vernon and Petunia's reaction to it right from the beginning. Well done!

Well, I still think the Dursley's are HORRIBLE. But, I did like the insight into Petunia. I honestly couldn't understand how a doting mother could neglect a child like that. This helped.

Poor Harry! I just wanted to give him a hug myself after reading this. This was excellent and so well written. Very believable too, in terms of canon. I could almost believe JKR herself wrote this. Well done!

Until the last line, I was starting to feel bad for the Dursleys. Still, poor Harry.
This was my favorite line:
"But Dudley is special,” Vernon pointed out, frowning. “Listen — he’s figured out how to turn the television on all by himself already. No-one can say that boy isn’t bright."
Great job!
