Title: A Muggle in Wonderland Author: Alexis_Wingstar Genre: AU, humor and romance Timeframe: Begins about a month after the beginning of HP: The Order of the Phoenix Summary: After being saved from Dementors by his cousin, Dudley has a change of heart. He searches for a way into the Wizard World so he can apologize to and thank Harry, and falls head over heels in love... literally. ~~~ 17 September, 1995: I, Dudley Dursley, must be out of my mind! Yes, that must be the case, for I am doing something for which I’m sure my father would throttle me, and probably make my dear mum faint. This is my first day back to school after having been in hospital for a couple weeks after being attacked by some shadow thing. My cousin Harry, whom I have bullied all his life, saved me. I’m not quite sure what that shadow thing was, but it was terrifying! I felt as though I was being eaten... not physically, but... I know this sounds crazy... but my soul was being sucked out of me by this cold shadow thing. I don’t know why Harry saved me. The way I treated him, I wouldn’t blame him if he’d left me to die. That is why I am doing this. I have to go thank him. I can’t wait ‘til when he comes back for Christmas or summer vacation. I can’t wait, because I also have to apologize. When he brought me back home after he saved me, I was confused. I told mum and father he put me in the state I was... which was a very weak, confused state, I can assure you. Well, I have to get to wherever this Hogwarts place is. Trouble is, I have no idea how to get there! Yesterday, I wrote a note and went to the local zoo. I snuck a key from one of the keepers who was coming out of the aviary cage. I managed to get an owl. The stupid feather brained fowl bit me! Almost took my finger off, it did! I finally managed to tie the note to it’s leg and let it go. I hope the damned bird makes it to Hogwarts and they let me come thank Harry and make amends. My finger still hurts. I hope it's not becoming infected!
