Hey! Review tag :)

This was really interesting! I've never really read any Cold War stories, and I hardly ever touch historical fiction, but it's actually a genre I've enjoyed when I've read it. To see Riddle and his group in such an unusual setting, and within a muggle context as well was definitely intriguing. I started to suspect that the Englishman was Voldemort when you mentioned there was like a leader to the group. I'm surprised he hasn't changed his name yet, but it's 1952 which seems like they'd all be very, very young. It's so difficult to imagine Riddle running (everything always seems to be beneath him), but the obstacle course was a neat idea. I also liked your other characters: Vladimir, Anastasia, Sergei, and it was a surprise to see Karkaroff and Dolohov there too.

I thought the writing throughout this was great - it was definitely very descriptive and allowed me to imagine everything really well. It'll be interesting to see where you take this! It's a great first chapter that really conveys so much potential for the rest of the story. I enjoyed this! :)

Author's Response: Thanks a lot for the review!

This is one of my favorite eras to read fiction about, and its such an unknown era when it comes to HP canon that I really enjoyed the amount of flexibility it allowed.

Riddle would be in his early 20's at this point. I'm not exactly sure when he changed his name, but I think his plans would be just starting out at this point in his life. I think we can infer from canon that he was probably somewhere in eastern europe for a while, and there also seems to be a Russian connection to the death waters with people like Dolohov and Karkaroff, so I'm just taking that and running with it.

Thanks again!
