You write historical fanfiction so well, I wonder, do you write historical fiction (original fiction) as another hobby? I know I read historical fiction novels outside of HPFF but I'd never attempt to write anything because I can never get the timeline of the dates right and the college I attend focuses more on American history.

I love Russian history (no offense to my country, I love America but there's only so much one person can learn about the Civil War) but apparently because the 'Cold War is over' they don't really teach anything about Russia besides the basic 'Well, the Cold War happened. America prevailed. Hurrah!' It's really a shame.

Anyway, not that that had anything really to do with this (sorry for my rambling) but I thought this was such a strong first chapter. I think your writing has really grown from Their Finest Hour (which I still have to finish...cough...cough) because the description was spot on.

I'm still baffled how you can weave the world of HP into the story, it fits so seamlessly. It'll be interesting to see how Riddle fits into the entire story because we really don't know much about his life except the basics: orphan, Dumbledore, Hogwarts, Hagrid, goes for Defense Position, starts to become Lord Voldemort...etc, etc, etc.

Author's Response: Hey Deeds!

I actually haven't relaly written any original historical fiction, but after the kind of reception this story has been getting, Im starting to think about trying it.

And I agree about Russian history; it's just so fascinating. Also, this is pretty much an unknown era when it comes to HP canon, but I think we can assume that Tom Riddle was somewhere in Eastern Europe at the time.

Thanks for reviewing!
