I'm glad the story made you laugh. It's just a relief that Pottermore info didn't debunk it completely, lol. Thanks for the read and review!

Poor thing... althought given Vernon's thickness, there is no telling that was the way it really happened. Shame (and lame) on Petunia to be such a scheeming minx! And for Vernon Dursley... bah! Really fun to read! ^^,

Author's Response:

Scheming is an intrugal part of the courtship process. These two just happen to be hideous examples, lol. What I wanted was for her to look at what Vernon had and what he could offer instead of who he was (ther bigoted git we know he is). It makes me think of the old adage of being careful what you wish for... lol.

Thanks for reviewing. I'm glad you liked the story. :D

Vernon is gross. Petunia is annoying. Great characterization of them, pathetic as they are. We know that's probably the truth, though. I'm sad the Evans are so supportive of them, but I suppose that's their job. Where is Lily during this? School? I can just imagine her pulling faces in the background, lol.
The end was hysterical. Decorate his house - Buhahahaha. What a pig. Almost makes me feel bad for Petunia, only she's getting what she wants so good for her if she wants him. Ick. How do you imagine the real proposal went? Equally as poorly?
Oh, I think you left out a word - "and I don't want her ruddy complaining about my draperies!" At least, I assume that's what you meant. :)
Congrats on the fastest fic ever, and good luck in the challenge! Go Ravenclaw!

Author's Response:

Haha, I told you this story was dumb. xD

Honestly, though, I think Mum and Dad were so supportive of her quest to snag Vernon because she hadn't had anyone else who was interested thus far. Plus, they want her to be happy, and if a great slob like him makes her happy, then so be it. :/

Honestly, I was considering ending it with her parents being hit by a car, but I remembered that I hadn't had a fluffy fic in a while. Hence decorating. And the idea of Vernon proposing and Petunia acting like it was the best day ever just horrifies me, hehe.

Thank you for reading, Twin O Mine!

Right from the first sentence this was just so perfectly in character... Petunia's anxiety to impress was excellent, and I loved this part - He grunted and stalked past Petunia when she gestured for him to enter their house, which she had cleaned from top to bottom for just this occasion. That single sentence shows so much of their characters and their relationship... just wow.

Her parents were quite amusing in their attempts to make things work for her.

I have to say, I actually felt bad for Petunia at the end... I wonder if anyone's ever written Vernon proposing to her? I can't imagine it... Anyway, his actual question was also very in character, as was her response.

So I'm going on a bit here... but this was just amazing characterisation.

Author's Response:

You know, in a way, I feel bad for Petunia. For years, she spent her entire life thinking what Vernon thought because she felt like it was her duty as his wife to do that. And on top of that, she had an inferiority complex about Lily's magical ability and her own lack thereof, I think it really, along with her submissive personality, really diminished her sense of self worth. A person with a decent self image would never have bothered with a jerk like Vernon, but in a way, he was what she needed. He removed her need to grow out of her rivalry with her sister and then something else to work for.

Anywho, rambling. Glad you liked it. I may or may not have written it in under an hour against a looming deadline, which I made by only five minutes. o.O

HA! Petunia, take that! Oh, I kinda wish he never asks her and she doesn't have the horrible Dudley.When the saliva sprayed onto her face, i wanted her to realise what a vile man Vernon was. Loved the parents, they were so eager to please Petunia. I expect they want rid of her - hee hee.

Fun story! ~Carole~

Author's Response:

Hehe, I wanted Vernon to be a bit rude, but not so much so that he would put her off completely. He's still vile, but most of his rancid vileness comes later in life when he no longer felt the need to impress anyone at home. Also known as Fat Slob!Vernon.

Anywho, ramble. I'm glad it didn't suck completely, especially as it's a glorified drabble. Thanks for pointing out those few errors, which I should've done before I went to bed. Oh wellz. :D
