petunia by gerre petunia by gerre
jealousy can make people say and do horrible things: here I drew two stories for petunia, one where she didn't become a witch, one where she did. (characters belong to J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series)

Nice work
It wasn't just jealousy it was her parents clear favoritism towards lily. Talk about being neglectful and sh^^^^y parents. Lily appeared to not even try and understand how Petunia felt being clearly isolated.

This is incredibly beautiful and makes me wish that Petunia had been a witch instead of a Muggle.

I would really like to read the books again with aunt petunia also being a witch.
I don't care of everyone dies all over again. I just wanne see how she would've affected the story if she was a witch as well.

Amazing work. I would have never thaoght of it. I've never considered her as a negative character though.  But these two stories made me think of it. Yeh, jealousy's a horrible feeling. Even envy I'd say.

This is beautiful. I love the idea of exploring how Petunia dreamed of things happening, contrasting with what actually happened. So poignant.

The really awful thing is that, even with her sister dead, witch!Petunia is probably a lot happier than Petunia Dursley. I mean, in canon we never see Petunia to have any real friends, she's completely consumed by bitterness and I don't think we ever see her properly happy. Witch!Petunia probably has a few friends and connections made at Hogwarts, no reason for bitterness and would probably be able to find some bittersweet happiness in raising her sister's child, none of which are even possible for Petunia Dursley.

I completely agree, though the bitterness & none-friend-having were largely her own fault. I mean, what's the use of staying angry with your sister for so long over something wich was no-one's fault.

I think the artist is working with the theory that if Petunia had become a witch, she would have never met Vernon, and even if she had being a witch she wouldn't have met his standards for being "normal" and so would never have married him. Making it impossible for the Dudley we all know and love to exist in the same form as he does in the original series

And, 'standarts' - theme from Petunia. Not from Vernon.
