Lovely end. And I liked Stella.
Is this the end? It's beautiful- although, really, I would have loved to see Vernon's face.
Another great chapter, I have enjoyed your story so much. In the epilogue I would love to see Dudley introducing Parvati to his parents and telling them she is a witch. I would also like to see the wedding.
This is great. I can't wait for the epilogue- maybe a look into the future with Dudley's family and Harry's family? Keep up the good work! :D
Sigh. I love happy endings. Now for the epilogue -- I'd like to request an encounter of the senior Dursleys with Parvati and Harry, mediated by Dudley. Perhaps at Dudley's wedding -- can you imagine them having to choose between dealing with magic and not seeing Diddykins?
Oh wow!!! What a chapter!
I like what you've done with Dudley. Might I suggest for the epilogue flashing forward for their daughter's first trip on the Hogwarts Express? Dudley in Platform 9 3/4 could be hilarious.
Very nice. I can see a sequel if you have the inclination: something centered on Dudley and Parvati's life and her introduction to his parents. Perhaps some revelations, courtesy of Parvati, about the wizarding war and life at Hogwarts.
I love mushy!! I love this! Hmmm I'd like to see old Vernon reacting to a wedding :-) and maybe Petunia giving the old man a one two!
I completely agree with the Hogshead thing, but why would Malfoy tell Dudley anything? Snidgets... :D
Uh oh, Dudley!!! Oh, and Dudley was stuck inside the cage in the movies. Book-canon, that didn't happen.
I am loving every moment this. Very well written, and everything is falling into place!
OHHH A cliffie! So, is the idea that once a witch/wizard invites, or tells a Muggle about Diagon Alley, they can see it?
Ohhlala! Yet another great chapter!
Exciting! I love how Dudley still retains some instance of his father's ideals "that lot", and such. I see his brain power has gone up much, either. :P
Wow, this is a great beginning. I love how you started and ended with Dudley's dreams. He's come out as a transformed person. :)
I might be wrong, but I thought that Muggles and Squibs couldn't see dementors? Anyway, I absolutely loved Lavender's sudden appearance, and her reaction to Ron's name. :P
Exactly how many years after the Battle is this? Keep up the good work! :D :D :D
A lot going on in this chapter and we leave with Dudley in a spot of bother.
That punch, in it's own way, is as good as watching Hermione punch Malfoy...
Fast thinking for Dudley, but as you are developing the character, he seems to be improving as he moves out on his own, away from his parents, and that makes perfect sense in context. I'm really glad he was able to rescue himself, and I am assuming he doesn't die from the venom...
I really like this chapter in particular. Not only is there a lot going on that is not over-explained, but I can see the action, and while dramatic, it isn't melodramatic. Nice fine line you've walked there.
I got an alert for this comment, but yes please, I'd like a PM. Thanks.
