I don't read much about Petunia, but I really loved the way you characterized her. It really felt like this could have been something that happend in the books. And you had Vernon perfect, haha I love that he thinks an alarm system would protect him from Voldemort. Whattamugggle.

I also thought it was really touching that she had regrets about not answering her sister. I'd like to think that Petunia didn't fully hate her sister, that would just be too sad.

Amazing work, 10/10!

Author's Response: I've had a few comment on Vernon and the alarm system, lol. It just seemed like a very Vernon-ish thing when I thought of it, and I'm glad others seem to agree.

This challenge was to come up with a "missing moment" from HBP, so I'm glad you thought it felt like something that could have happened in the books. That was my goal!

Thanks for commenting on Petunia's characterization. I'm rather proud of it, actually. I don't think Petunia fully hated Lily. She was jealous and resentful, there's no doubt about that. I just expanded on that a little by deciding the sisters had been close as young children. As for Petunia having regrets . . . well, that's a pretty human thing for her to experience. She's not the first person, nor will she be the last, to regret not speaking up before it's too late.

Thanks for reviewing! :-)
