Hi there!

This was actually a heartbreaking little story. I loved the constant thread of envy you showed in Petunia, because we know that's a huge part of her.

From the moment her neighbor/friend was talking about her travels, we got such a perfect sense of longing. She didn't just want to be stuck in there as a house-wife forever. She wanted to get out, to see things, but couldn't figure out how to voice that to her husband and make him understand.

When Vernon comes home and tells Dudley they're going on a retreat, just them, I really felt Petunia's restraint snap. I especially like the inclusion of the scrapbook Lily had given her and the jealousy again coming through with where her sister had gotten to go.

Ohh when she changes her mind last minute, too scared and already having talking herself out of it, I felt so sad for her. That one decision could have been the start to something amazing, and i wished she'd have gotten on. I think you kept her in character really well, especially with having her too nervous at the end to really take that leap.

Awesome HC entry!

Author's Response: Gosh, it wasn't until I started to write Petunia that I realize how complicated she was. Her envy. Her romanticism. Her bitterness. Her need for normalcy, but her hunger for adventure. I tried to make her identifiable, so it means a lot that you think it was successful! Thank you for your insight and for taking the time to review!!!
