Reviews For A Dursley Christmas Carol
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.
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 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.
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!!!
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.
