Poor Petunia, now I feel more sympathetic for her than I was before. I always thought there was something more to Petunia's side of the story - she can't have always hated Lily.

And Vernon is really mean. You portrayed him quite nicely, as JKR would have - calling Lord Voldemort "Lord Thing" and having absolutely no faith or respect in magic. Yes Vernon, as if burglar alarms are going to protect you from Lord Thing.

And also, I like how Petunia answered like she knew exactly what they were up against and tried persuading Vernon that protecting them with magic was for the best.

10/10!!! Great one-shot :D

Author's Response: Oh yes, I had great fun with Vernon. I enjoy getting to take minor characters who make small appearances in a story I'm writing and basically taking one or two recognizable traits and caricaturizing (is that a word?) them. Even though Vernon seems completely ridiculous, there is basis for his behavior in canon, so it's fun to bring that out.

Petunia is not an easy character to like, but thanks to Snape's memories, she's easier to understand and empathize with. She knows more about magic than Vernon, and even if she fails to grasp the real scope, she has some idea of the seriousness of the situation.

Thanks for reviewing!
