Hilo. How's things Serious? I think I can call you Serious. I mean, is Ms. Black good? I don't want to cross any boundaries.

That is actually very funny that you fell into the 12- rule so wholeheartedly. I was tugged in for a bit before realizing what day it was and having read about the Twilight thing the year previous. ;)

But besides that you've done a good job with this first chapter. I think our writing styles are similar, if that means anything? I don't know... just the way you tackle the narrative kind of feels familiar. Does that make more sense? o.O

But anyways, well, the mind of Dudley is an interesting thing, no? I'm sure that he's not just demented but tormented as well. And I like the idea of a bit of a surprise at the end (if you hadn't read DH :P) as well. Just - the Dursley's are all these kind of wizard haters and disdainful of anything to do with that crackpot school - and then they crack while Petunia bawls her eyes out into Ickle Duddykins's shoulder. It's a nice imagine.

And while the Dursley's weren't the nicest to him, the first four novels kind of had that comedic feel with the Dursleys - you know? Everyone always talks about the idea that they abused Harry - and some fics make it much more angsty (wink wink) than the books ever did. And it kind of irks me. Vernon and Petunia are comedic styled characters. A horse and a whale - with a son that was (before boxing) wider than he was tall. Funny images all round.

And you keep that going. Dudley's not the deepest character on the planet, and truth be told, sans the Harry thing, he's a regular British kid. He just has knowledge of a very strange place.

And now he's going somewhere very interesting. I quite like the idea and premise of this fic, and look forward to reading and seeing where this is all heading toward - I quite the idea of a dudley/OC fic. We'll have to see how she looks, hm? ;)

Author's Response: Jackson,

Wow! Long Review!

Haha! You can call me whatever you want, be it Serious or Ms. Black or anything else you come up with. I'll respond to literally anything.

I'm pretty sure that I am THE most gullible person on this planet. I've found that I just have to laugh at myself when I fall for practical jokes, which, needless to say, happens a lot.

I'm glad you enjoyed the first chapter. I think you might be right; we do write similarly, now that I think about it. Fun stuff!

I wanted to write about the Dursleys because of the "comedic feel," as you put it, I found in the books. The Dursley v. Wizarding World chapters in JK's books have always been some of my favorites because they overreact to EVERYTHING.

Thank you so much for leaving such a lovely review! It made my day!

-Serious/Ms. Black/whatever :P
