Review:Smitty says:
I found this work amazing, it touched the characters perfectly! I must say that this pairing has become a favorite of mine and thus far this is the best capture of what I believe was their lust for one another.

No, Voldemort may not love but he may desire and he desired to share the would with a woman of equal someone he might have tried to replace with his dark gem Bellatrix but with her crude nature she was never the same. The boy's last futile reach to the light, to his Minerva that could save him from himself and yet he could only find the will to ask her to join him in hell.

As for Minerva we all have a thing for the bad boy, she may have felt the need to save and the throb of young attraction. She wished to taste something beyond her nature, to be with someone she desired for the greatest thing to her was and is intellect and courage. Tom had both, other then his devilish fear of dying he did not fear the loss of his soul or his appearance he handled it in stride.

The two sides that could never be. Very well written, it is positively beautiful.

Author's Response: Thank you very much! This one shot still gives me nightmares, but only in a good way - it was perhaps the biggest thing I'd ever written at the time, not in terms of length, but sheer breadth and power of content. It was my first exploration into the ship, and I'm glad to hear that it worked out so well. ^_^

This pairing is endlessly fascinating (great to find another fan! yay!) because there's so much to it, so many facets and complex characterizations to navigate through for both characters. I like your point that he ended up "replacing" Minerva with Bellatrix, but the latter couldn't fill the position in the way he wanted - Bella lacks Minerva's goodness and independence of thought, she never questions him like Minerva always would, and I imagine that would make Minerva continuously interesting, not merely a follower, but something more. It's much harder to try and understand what Minerva could see in him apart from his appearance, brains, and magnetism which, in most cases, is enough. :P Perhaps he was her rebellion from propriety and primness - that I could see, especially when she was younger.

Anyway, thank you again for reading and reviewing this! :D
