Well I'm Australian from the colony of Victoria, and I fell in love with the books the year I turned 9, when I got the first two as christmas presents.
I have a few plot outlines that I have been working on for a couple of years. So stay on the lookout, I might actually write one or two or if your intrested in a story idea, you can contact me, via my email (email@example.com).
Interesting spin. I did see an interview with J.K saying that she thought of putting Dudley and his magical son on the platform, (19 yrs later) and the decided that magic wouldn't of servied contact with Vernon's genetics. Patunia I assume would've been privately glad, she did always love her sister, and she kept Harry regardless. I liked your take on events though I'm almost sure Dudley's wife was named Dasiy.
Its 3:30am in Australia and I'm laughing at Ron.
Author's Response: Thanks Ron annoys Hermione, but Ron also makes her laugh. That (in my opinion) will always be his trump card. -N-
