I'm rather relieved that you allowed Dudley to be reasonable about his son's magical ability. From what we saw at the beginning of Deathly Hallows, I think that given twenty more years Dudley would be a much more mature and reasonable person than even his own father. Well done!
I'd read so many where Dudley continued in the same direction of his parents. I really didn't like that, so I wrote him this way. JKR gave us a slightly changed Dudley. I took her cue and allowed him to actually grow up and become a better man. I'm just so happy you've liked my stories. Thanks so much for the review.
