| The Dark One Rising chapter 1 . 1/26
It would have been interesting if Liky was the elder sister. That would have changed the dynamics of their relationship. Instead of her bejng the perfect younger sister, she would have been the supposedly responsible older sister that went off and got herself killed. However, it is Petunia who failed as an older sister, and possibly Lily who pulled away

The beginning of the end. : ( Sad but well written. Poor girls; their sisterhood really was torn asunder by Lily's gift.

'Deborah Peters' you are hilarious.
Please update this story as well. This plot is such a brilliant idea!

This was a very good story. I especially like the fanon idea that Lily is the older Evans sister, before DHs came out and it confirmed that Petunia was older.
All in all, I do like the very 70s feel of this fic and that you seem to be implying that this is the point where Petunia's feelings towards Lily began to change towards the negative.
Excellent job! I enjoyed this very much.

I liked it. :) I'm not too big a fan of Petunia because of how she acts in the books, but the past does shape the future. I'd bet that moments like this happened all the time; not just between her and Lily, but other families with squibs and muggleborns as well. Ah, but Petunia reminds me of myself at times.
She's plain while all the girls are pretty and dolled up, trying to impress for the guys. I've seen it all the time, and I've still kept my same hair style for about eight years. People always gossiping and what not behind my back, though I suppose I've yet to care about it. /I don't think I ever will./ Ah, but that's a good thing, right? The similarites? For I can relate even deeper to your fic.
So, yes, I liked it. 'Cause, nowadays, you don't get too much of the truth in fiction. ;)

Oh that was very bitter sweet. It makes me feel really sorry for Petunia.

How did I not review this yet?
I truly enjoyed this- it so accurately portrays pre-teen girls and their relationship with their sister's. I loved Lily's bits in this, it made it seem so real.

Not really what I expected when I read the summary, but its nice all the same. I always thought Lily was the younger one. Nicely written and cute story. I like the view of Petunia before she turned so jealous.

First of all-that is a very, very clever summary. I sort of expected happy Evans sister fluff, and then you give me this, and do much more justice to Petunia than happy bunny fluff ever would. I absolutely love this, absolutely love the spin you put on her. I can't really imagine anything to say other than how astounded I am. Seriously, I'm utterly floored. Job well *done.*

you make me feel for petunia in this story, something i am not predisposed to do. your portrayal of her humanizes her in a way that jkr doesn't find the pages for in cannon.
being an older sister who adored installing her little sister in the Big Sister Beauty Cult, i can even empathize with her anger at lily.
on a more superficial note, i love the way you begin this fic. your 'mean girls' tone is executed perfectly. it made me harken back the to the days of gossip hour and pajama party makeovers. and nasty sobfests in the middle school and high school bathrooms over large zits which only succeeded in running poorly applied cheap mascara.
not that i ever did any of those things...
