Hey! Here for review tag again xD

Yay I am glad I got a chance to come back and finish this story =) It was truly a very interesting collection to read.

I loved how you chose Petunia Dursley as the last character of your collection. An interesting choice indeed. I think the way you incorporated the newspaper clippings to sort of bring closure to all the previous chapters/characters was brilliant, and then how you connected it with Petunia was superb. I loved the re-use of "Mr and Mrs Dursley of Number Four..." lines, it added a very realistic touch to the narrative.

Your portrayal of Petunia and her feelings towards Lily was also very believable, and very touching. I liked how you maintained her canon characterisation, like how she dreads the christmas card from the Potters, but added your personal touch to her by turning her into someone who still cares for her dead sister and misses her, and wants to keep a part of her (sort of).

I think it was very believable that Petunia would actually cut out little Lily from the picture and throw away the rest of the picture. The little detail of how the picture reacted (Harry looking puzzled and one of the boys crying) was really cute as well.

All in all, I really enjoyed this chapter. You wrote Petunia very well, ended the collection perfectly, and did a great job with the story over all. I loved reading this =)


Author's Response: Hi again! :)

I'm so glad to see you back, and it's wonderful to get your opinion and feedback on each chapter and the collection as a whole. I loved writing it!

For some reason, I couldn't imagine ending this story in any way but with the Dursleys, who kicked off the HP books! I enjoyed writing Petunia, though she just wouldn't work in first person like the other characters. It's good to hear the newspaper clippings worked out as well, and succeeded in tying the story together. Thank you for this feedback! :)

I'm also pleased you liked the characterization of Petunia, and her feelings towards both the Lilys. I thought that her actions in the memories in DH redeemed her and gave her a little more depth as a character, who would have loved and mourned her sister in her own way. It's also wonderful that you mentioned the figures in the picture, as that was a fun little detail to include.

Thank you so much for reviewing this whole story, I really appreciate your kind and thoughtful words! :D
