I feel so horrible reading this, the way everything's happened for them. I just hope you make it work out at the end. I'm glad Remus is involved though, to make it better for them.
Author's Response: Thank you. it's finished now and I think it works out well for them.
On "Dance", I wondered if Mrs. Figg was the babysitter in this universe. Apparently not, as in "Warning", she seems to simply be a neighbor who checks in from time to time. I like how well you are giving Dudley's viewpoint throughout the series. And if Mrs. Figg was aware (and in touch) with Dumbledore, I wonder how many others in the wizarding world are, and who may have already communicated to the headmaster how Harry is at this point, including Remus.
Author's Response: Thank you. Dudley's POV is important here :)
I love this story. I am both a Foster Mother and the mother of two developmentally children. You have done a wonderful job of capturing the pain, frustration, and amazing pride of raising these wonderful children.
Author's Response: Thank you very much; I'm glad it rings true to you.
This is such a moving (and realistic!) look at how things might have been. I really like seeing this Petunia and Dudley interact with Harry, and how cool that you've brought in Remus! Can't wait to see more!
Author's Response: Thank you :)
I'm thinking as I read this, how close you must be to someone who is in the same situation as Petunia. I hope all goes well for her and her boys, but I also know how life can go. I look forward to your next chapter.
Author's Response: Thanks - I'm glad you like it . (I'm a single mother, and my sister is mentally disabled, so I can relate a little, yes.)
An interesting AU, about Harry having brain damage from the results of the Killing Curse. I wonder if having part of Voldy in him would affect his thinking/brain/developement as he got older? Very interesting situation you have there. Thanks for a peek into that particular universe.
Author's Response: Thanks a lot :)
