Hello, this is Celestie from the Review Tag forum. ;)

Wow, I loved this. Straight into my favorites it goes. You kept both Petunia and Vernon wonderfully in character. I was cracking up over Vernon's decision to buy an alarm system. So typically Vernon - investing his faith in something shiny and expensive. XD

You captured Petunia's reflections over Lily's last letter very well. It was so poignant. The ending was a little unexpected, but touching nonetheless. You are a very talented writer; I shall be reading more of your work in the future!

Well done!
9/10

Author's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review and compliments! I had so much fun writing Vernon. I had this image of him rocking back and forth on his heels, being all irritating with his dumb gadget. Just like a guy. I figured I could really play that up with him, since it fit so well with his ignorance of magic.

Petunia was a bit trickier, but I found myself relating to her more easily than I expected. The whole story was based on the image of Petunia looking at an old photograph.

The ending is the part I'm least pleased with. It was originally different. I had Harry walking in on Petunia, but I had to tweak it at the last moment to fit with the challenge requirements - I wrote an OotP missing moment intead of HBP!
