Thank you so much for your fantastic comment, I am so very glad you liked it! After all, a few years ago you wrote a gorgeous Petunia/Vernon fic for me, it was only fair to return the favour.
I felt compelled to write Umbridge the moment I saw her name on your list, and I even asked pauraque if you'd be okay with dark and unpleasant. He said dark and unpleasant would be fine, and so here we are.
Ah, Arabella! She had me worried a bit, because I wasn't sure if she wasn't too dotty in this. Good to know that the forcefulness came through, as well. The cats were great fun, of course, and I made them such prominent characters because you had said in your sign-up post that you don't want to see any cruely to animals. So I assumed that you would like to see the opposite.
Again, I'm delighted that I managed to give you a fic that you enjoyed - even though it had Dolores in it :-)
