Noooo!! Wrong decision!! Don't do it!!
Anyway... Somehow I think Dumbledore might have tried harder to tell her about magic, though, if he got a response like this. Still, your characterization of Petunia is interesting - I can just see her "sacrificing" her childhood in search for acceptance.
Wow, I really really like this fic! Its short yet sweet, and just absolutely wonderful! The only thing I'm curious about is why would Lily be punished if the man sitting next to her spilled his drink over her? Shouldn't it have been Lily not getting in trouble because she spilled her soda into the business-man's lap? Besides from that, I loved it! Great job! Keep up the good work!
when i first read this (a while ago), i loved it. and i still do! this is a beautiful one-shot, and very petunia-like.
