| Ohohohoho chapter 1 . 5/10
Can't believe I didn't find this little gem sooner!
I completely agree movies were good all things considered, but of all their failings the Dursleys were the worst. Turning them into slapstick jokes when the first three books made it clear (as clear as allusions can be) that they'd severely abused him.
Just to be clear a man Vernon's size grabbing and physically lifting an eleven year old boy by the arm, throwing him into a dirty, ratty, spider infested cupboard is not mild abuse.
In reality an underfed, exhausted, bullied and abused little boy would likely suffer from a spiral fracture along with all the other injuries and health issues he'd likely have.
Not that locking a child in a room and under feeding them is ok either.
Setting dogs on children (no matter either's size) also not cool.

At least Petunia didn't say Dudders was pulling a cute little prank and ought to be made Head Boy because of it...but then, she's nicer than Dumbledore.
Granted, that bar's rather low, and according to canon, anything bad that happens to Snape is always hilarious, alas.
But at least in this story Petunia and Vernon understood that there are limits to what her beloved Dudders can do, and Harry has a few moments of peace.

Very interesting. I've never read anything along these lines before but it was very interesting and very well-done.

I really enjoyed reading this. Yes, I can imagine Petunia seeing Dudley doing something like that and it being a total slap in the face for her. Finding out that her perfect little Diddykins, isn't so perfect. You did a good job at getting the Dursleys to lighten up on Harry without being ridiculously out of character or too kind.

Very nice story...I really like the moments between Harry and his aunt as well as the ending where Dudley was being scolded! :)

I love this story, and I love your take on the Dursleys. I never liked them really, for their personality. But as characters, they're awesome! The only Harry Potter character I really dislike is Dean Thomas. I don't know why, but I just can't stand his personality...both as a character and his plain personality.

This deserved to be written. Thank you. I appreciate your Roald Dahl reference; I've always loved his books, and I must say that I came to the exact same conclusion. I agree about the books vs. the movies too. Nothing beats the kind of humor that can only be written down.
