So glad you updated again so soon. What a treat! And I love the direction the story is taking. I'm just hoping we'll eventually get to see a reunion between Dudley and Harry. (My dream would be for Dudley to tag along to the Battle of Hogwarts, sort of the way he did to the Longbottom rescue at St. Mungo's, but maybe that's too over the top. But I can always dream!)

Can't tell you how many times I've checked over the past almost-year for an update. I almost didn't check this last time. And there was a new chapter, just in time for my birthday! You didn't disappoint. Hope you're working on more and will submit soon.

 

Veils by Equinox Chick
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 28]

Summary: It is the night before Petunia Evans' wedding. As she stares at herself in the mirror, she is satisfied with her appearance. The dress is perfect, cleverly cut to give her curves, and she looks like a dream. Yes, the dress is perfection ... but what of the veil?

She has promised Vernon and his formidable mother that she will wear the Dursley veil. It is an antique. A family heirloom.

It is hideous.

What she needs is a miracle to rid her of the ugly thing ... or perhaps a touch of magic.

This is Equinox Chick of Hufflepuff and this is my entry in the Weddings Challenge - prompt Big Weddings - in the Great Hall Challenge over at the MNFF beta boards.

Thank you to Samarie (Hopeful_Song) and Kara (Karaley Dargen) for beta'ing this.

Disclaimer: I'm not JK Rowling. I doubt anyone is surprised by that.

Holy Moroley and all things Padfoot! This won the QSQ for Best Marauder Era story. Thank you!

I love this story! I've always pictured Petunia's feelings being pretty complex, especially about Lily. I love how you captured that. My favorite moment was when she was about to reach out to James and ask him to sit and talk to her--but then Lily appeared on the stairs and James only had eyes for her. To me that seems to sum up Petunia's life. The attention was always going to be on Lily. Maybe that's why she was attracted to Vernon--because he would never want someone "abnormal" like Lily.

As the story was near the end, I was about to cry--and wondering if Petunia ever remembered all this in relation to Harry. And then you gave us the little bit about Harry and the Dursleys leaving Privet Drive. Brilliant ending!

Any time you want to give us more about Petunia and the Dursleys, I'm all for it!

Author's Response: Thank you very much for the review, Chocolate. I'm very pleased you picked up on Petunia reaching out to James but then getting ignored. I think jealousy was such a strong part of the sisters' relationship - which is very sad. And yes I think part of the attraction of Vernon was that he would have hated Lily's 'abnormality'. Thanks again - Carole
