Lost as Alice-Mad as de Hatter chapter 1 . 8/11/2016
I thought this was about Petunia and Snape -sorry, hadn't read the pairing at the top- because I believe that had they given each other a chance, they'd have been perfect for each other. Both are loyal...yes, Petunia is to the wrong man, but still, and are bitter, and are not good looking, and have been rejected by society. Yes, intellectually, Snape would never had been interested...but hey, with a little help from us Fanfic lovers, that wouldn't have been a problem, yeah? :D

Anyhow, I want to close this by saying: loved the last line. :)

Jeeeesus Christ. You actually made me feel kind of bad for Vernon Dursley. You are incredibly talented and a gift to the world.
Sammypenny chapter 1 . 8/10/2015
I really enjoyed the twist and simplicity of your story. I'm glad it got me to see a different point of view, though I think Veron Dursley being described as a nerd is a bit of a stretch. ;)

Nice twist!

Oh, I really thought that the story was about Lily and Snape until the last line, that was great! And somehow, these few lines and the author's note were an eye-opener. I think that I can see things more from Petunia's and Vernon's perspective now, although I'd still need to read more to truly understand them as characters... Since this drabble was so well thought out, I'm definitely going to check out some of the essays on your website

Wow. I never saw it like that until you pointed it out...

I usually hate Vernon Dursley.. but this is very sweet; I really love this characterization.

This is the kind of little tiny stories I like to read. I'm sick of people who hate Lily, but I'm also sick of people who have her on a pedestal.

I like this story because we see Lily as Petunia saw her... As a not-so-loyal friend.

She being like that it's not pad per se, but it sucks people try to turn that around and throw all the blame to Severus.

Also, it's refreshing to read some Dursley's fic when they're portrated as actual people, you know?

It's good to find an author who's not so biased towards them.

Kudos to you!

Sad and brilliant.

...The last line killed me.

I'm no Petunia fan, but you managed to open a whole new (head)canon for me, so: thank you. A truly magnificent drabble, with heart-breaking similarities between two (and two others, yes) characters I always saw as very different.

I've never thought much about the Dursleys, but I think you might be right. Puts a new spin on them for me now..
ByHookOrByCrook chapter 1 . 11/24/2011
Wow. This is potentially the most deep piece of work I have read on here and also one of the shortest.

It's truly amazing and just the right length.
Heathersmoke chapter 1 . 10/26/2011
I'm a sucker for Petunia/Vernon, and this was just perfect. I love how you characterise his home life, of which I got a similar impression. No wonder both want to make sure Dudley has a happy life later!

Thank you for this.
