This made me cry. It's really nicely written.

Wonderful fic! It was refreshing to see Petunia's point of view, and the fact that she really wasnt all evil and horrible was a plus. I could actually agree with some of her thoughts and the reasons for her actions. I would have liked a little more Snape, but thats just because I like him so much. Great fic! :)

Great work. Your look into Petunia's head is utterly convincing and there's not a false note anywhere. But as a Snape-aholic, I'm afraid I'm more interested in the story you didn't tell: what Snape did after Petunia left, whether he actually spoke to Harry at any time after faking his death, and where his journey took him in the end.

Oh this was wonderful.
The glimpses throughout the years... Dudley, Snape, Petunia (oh Petunia!), so well done.
Every character was fleshed-out, an actual person, no cardboard stand-ins here, and each one made me ache for them.
Thank you so much for sharing.

Dear god! That was really just so utterly, painfully beautiful. I love the idea that Lily truly did represent something trying and difficult and terrifying for Petunia, but that doesn't mean she didn't love her. Fantastic to see her running into Snape at all these monumental events. I loveee the idea of Dudley and Harry making a true peace. Excellent little character study that did a great job of spanning a significant and reasonable past and future!

I loved this story, only I wasn't too keen on the end. But that's just my personal preferance as I generally don't read AU. But a really touching side to Petunia.
Well done, and keep writing!

I loved all of it - it was very well written and it had so much emotion in it. I love how Petunia is in this story, it is very OC. There is quite simply not enough words to describe how much I love this fanfic!
Great story and I love how you set in all out.

Lovely, lovely one shot about my favorite sisters and their complex relationship! I loved the writing, it was so emotional. Very well done:)

Excellent story. And Petunia is right-how much longer can the Wizarding World stand when it's so ready to slice itself to bits? At least she is going home to a family, even though she's lucky to have anything left after DH.
Snape? Probably not. But then, he doesn't know what it's like to have anyone love him anyway. Perhaps he'll learn someday.
But not today.

This is a hard one. I mean, everybody takes for granted that Petunia is the evil one, in the middle class sense. Nobody tries to see why and how and with what consequences... A very well done piece again :-)

Hahah. That authors note at the beginning made me laugh, and I just reread it. . . .
I like your explanation of Petunia's reasoning for her actions. I liked the story in general (I can't think of a right word for what I'm feeling, but it's just a bit brighter than the feeling I get listening to Malchik gay), but those authors who can make Petunia not hate Harry in cannon are amazing. Kudos to you!

I loved this story. You pinned Petunia's character very realistically; you really got inside her head and thought about why she did the things that she did, and managed to make her sympathetic. The whole fic reads as very real - there are good and bad parts to everything in it, and as a whole it leaves you with a sense of satisfied hope (does that make sense?) As a matter of fact, you've inspired many ideas for my own Petunia fic - I think she's highly underrepresented. :)
| Magical Poof 9/26/09 . chapter 1
This was beautiful! The writing was so poignant and the emotion in this was staggering. I loved the contrast between Petunia and Snape, as well as her justificaiton for why she treated Harry like she did and how she wasn't able to really love him.
I really liked that one line about Vernon, however, about how he walked into the bank and looked at her like she was the most beautiful girl in the world. I thought that was really touching and I loved it because Vernon is always portrayed in such a negative light that you wonder how he managed to get anyone to marry him at all. I think that one little moment was beautiful and I could just imagine plain, average Petunia being made to feel special.
Anyway, great fic and definately going on my favorites list!

Very nice. Surprisingly touching.
I'm not sure what purpose Snape had at the end of the story, but I have a feeling it was important. I just can't put my finger on it.
I enjoyed reading this alot. I haven't seen much from you that is in a fandom I'm a member of, so this was a pleasent surprise
| Little Kunai 7/31/09 . chapter 1
this was amazing, you had petunia growing from a young adult to a wiser, more mature older woman. this story captured a wide range of emotion with subtlety and precision, blending it into something completely realistic in a way that rowlings never did.
