    Loved the story and your take on it. It is usually Severus who is the centre of this story so a lovely take on the story. I’m glad there was a lovely ending

    Author's Response:

    Thanks for reading and reviewing, Fmh.  I'm glad you like it.   I had seen a lot with Severus in Scrooge's role.  I wanted to experiment a little; so, since Snape is the in your face type; I decided to have him play a more passive aggressive role in dealing with the Dursleys.  Glad you liked it.

    Very nice. Good to see the Dursleys see the error of their ways without actually being hexed. The future looks bright all round.

    Author's Response: Yes, indeed.  It won't be easy but having met Voldemort; they know what could happen.  I thought I'd try a less violent solution.  But Arabella's cousin I think could  have been persuaded to hex them....

    I really enjoyed this story! The pacing was perfect - just like a true Christmas Carol story, and the 3 spirits were perfect as well!

    I was a little stunned that you chose Tom as the Spirit of Christmas yet to come, but I enjoy what you did with him. Once I got over the initial shock I could just PICTURE his smarmy face hidden behind that cloak, his mannerisms, everything.

    I felt so bad for little Lily in the Christmas past too, her heartbreak over what Petunia did to the dress, oh my god I was angry FOR her.

    This ending though made me almost wonder what would transpire in the future with the change. I'd love to see a story where Dudley and Harry actually get to grow up enjoying each other as cousins/siblings, and not being spoiled.

    Well, sorry, I'm rambling - just know this was an amazing story.

    Author's Response:

    The hardest part was to choose the Marley substitute.   If I followed true to DIckens, it should have been Lily or James as they were the declared dead.  When I had the idea to use the muggle Tom Riddle, Sr., the character developed an atitude on me.  He was snarky and not consoling.

    Voldemort as the spirit of Christmeas yet to come?  That to me was my first choice.  I played off the prophecy that Harry's death would mean Voldemort's triumph.  I'm glad R worked for you and you saw my vision.

    Rowling  played off that Petunia didn't like Lily in the books.I'm glad my details made you angry.  IT was exactly what I was hoping for.

    Dickens felt that a once off for Scrooge was all that was needed.  I am sure that there will be times that the Dursleys will struggle.  Probably no more Dicken's potion butit might be worth exploring.  I never thought about a continuation  but now...

    Thanks so much for your review.  IT's nice to know that not only did you enjoy the story but that the elements I worried over came through.  THanks, again!!!

    That was a fun story. I always enjoy different versions of "Christmas Carol" and that was a good one. I wish one of the channels would just run various versions of it from television shows and movies back to back over the holidays. The grocer who watched for magical folk was a nice touch and the various ghosts were great. I'll have to reread it closer to Christmas.

    Author's Response:

    I'd be glued to the television.  I admit  I have a lot on DVD and do mini-marathons.  

     

    I enjoyed the chance to try different character styles for each ghost.  So, glad you enjoyed it.
