Review #1, by CassiePotter Words Unspoken

22nd February 2014:
Hello!
I am so glad I saw this one-shot! I haven't read a lot of stories that are centered around Petunia, so I was intrigued when I saw this, and you most definitely delivered! You wrote Petunia beautifully, and it made me really sad for her reading all the things she almost says to Harry. I could feel the connection she once had with Lily, and her regret and pain from losing her, even though she tries to cover it up. Petunia felt so real in this, and you gave her character a lot of depth that we rarely see when she is depicted in JKR's writing. This was a great story, and I really enjoyed it! 10/10
Cassie :)

Author's Response: Thanks so much. You just made my day, f.y.i. I really felt that there was more to Petunia than J.K. Rowling wrote about and I wish she had expanded upon her feelings. Alas, that is not the case, so I wrote it for her :)

I absolutely love this! It's amazing to see into the head of Petunia. To see all the regret and sadness she felt for treating Harry the way she had. To see how much she truly loved her sister. It makes me look back and see her as a bigger part of the story, and more as a human who makes mistakes. Not like the cruel, jealous aunt that Rowling makes her to be. Definitely a thumbs up to this one.

Author's Response: Thanks for your review :) I'm glad you liked it. I really felt that we didn't get to see all that there was to Petunia and I wanted to show another side of her.

Ryebread,
There were many things Petunia left unsaid. I see her as keeping her mouth shut and her words to herself, for self-preservation. If she says nothing she won't be admitting that she was wrong. She can't even think how scared she is, because she knows deep inside, she and her precious husband and son, could be killed, if not for the heart of her nephew. I don't know if Tuney will spend the next 9 months consumed by guilt because of how she treated her beloved sister's son. though I doubt it. I do hope she tries to find a way, after Harry is triumphant, to just start saying how she was wrong, and is sorry, and will forever be in his debt. You did a great job with this.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review. And that's a great point. I honestly hadn't thought of the self-preservation point of view, but I like that. It really makes sense. You should write your own one-shot and improve upon my own ;)

Ok I really like this, it shows Petunia's sorrow for how she treated her sister and then later Harry. In the books it was only ever from Harry's point of view so it was like she was an evil old hag, but this really added some depth to her character I think! Well done :)

Author's Response: Thanks. I was inspired by that last appearance of Petunia in the books. I always wondered what she was hoping to say, but never did and I just wrote down what I hoped was her thoughts.

This is pretty good. I always like one-shots about things like this, how they show the feelings we never hear about in the book, because everyone has doubts and it's cool to hear about them. I saw a few misspellings but other then that absolutely no complaints!

Author's Response: Thanks. I feel the exact same way. I love knowing how the characters experience events and how they deal with them. Also now that you said spelling errors, I'm going to go back through like a paranoid grammar Nazi. Haha.
