Review:Toujours Padfoot says:
Ooh! This was pretty powerful. I think it's striking that you had Voldemort sustain himself on spite and malice instead of power. I always picture him as this power-hungry, other-worldly thing that is incapable of real emotion. The fact that he can feel spite indicates that he can feel envy, and confusion, and that unlocks the door to Voldy's secret emotions no one knew existed. It makes him more real and complex, rather than just a symbol of evil and greed-gone-wrong. With this story, I can get a sense of how ignorant he truly is in his view of the world, but it's in a subtle, well-written way. I see it in the mood of his thoughts. Oh, goodness, I just feel a bit creeped out with this image of a Voldemort-thing slithering around on the ground through the leaves. Makes me want to go sit in a chair or something so that I'm not touching the floor anymore (as I am doing at the moment). Brilliantly creep-tastic, my friend. :)

Author's Response: hello!
I've actually always pictured voldemort as secretly insecure- and seeking power to make up for his insecurities. I know the books kind of paint him as just a symbol of evil but I rather feel that JKR always left room for readers to go beyond that. I'm glad this story unlocked those emotions!

Hehe! the image of you running for cover and lifting your feet off the ground is a funny one ;)

thanks for the review!
