Review:Selene says:
Oh wow, this is dark. It made me sit back and be afraid of Riddle. You weren't overly descriptive with the violent bits, you gave us as readers just enough detail to send our imagination into overdrive. Wonderful job on that, some writers will go into way to much detail and make a reader squeamish.

You're depiction of Tom was actually inspiring, if that makes any sense. I feel like a light bulb has gone off in my head as I find Tom/Voldemort the hardest character to write. He's just so evil, that I wind up making him seem a pansy since I don't know how to even start pulling him off right. Heck this whole thing is inspiring in a way, not just in a dark sense but in a writing sense.

I'm adding this to my favorites when I submit this review. Thank you for the read!

Author's Response: Hey!

First things first, I am so sorry for taking so long with this review reply. I really do appreciate you taking your time to read and review this story; real life has been hectic lately, so it's taken me away from HPFF.

My response to this review is just: wow. Thank you so much for your kind words; it means more than you will know.

I definitely agree with you about the darkness of this piece and that was honestly something I found hard to deal with. I have never attempted something so dark and twisted, so it was really difficult. I am so glad you think I didn't go overboard with the description, though, as being too adjective-friendly is something I've always had a problem with.

As for Tom's character: thank you so much for the compliments on that. I found him so difficult to write, especially as a child. I didn't know whether he was out of character or too evil to be realistic, so your review is very reassuring.

Thank you so much once again!
