I love reading about the older characters in their childhoods. It seems like everything is rather decent, and then... BAM. They go to Hogwarts, and everything changes.

Here you've mananged to give Petunia a good character without making her too nice... I think that's what I'd have trouble with if I were to write her. She is in no way a villain, and people who write her as an ugly hag who hates the world are wrong.

From Petunia's view, Lily seems cute, but annoying. It's great how you've shown her from Petunia's eyes, rather than how the rest of the world adores her.

I can't wait to see where this goes!! Keep it up!


Author's Response: Hi! :)

You're right, everything changed after Lily went to Hogwarts.

I'm glad you liked Petunia's characterization! That's what I was aiming for, not too evil and too nice. Honestly, I've always thought of Petunia as a misunderstood character. As an older sister myself, I can completely relate to her being jealous of Lily. I mean, she was already jealous of her 'perfect' little sister and then to find out that she was a witch must have been terrible for Petunia.

Thank you for the wonderful review! :)
