Review Tag!

I was really intrigued to read a story about Tom Riddle at Hogwarts. I think his characterisation was perfect - from the way he interacted with his "friends" to the way everything was going on inside his mind.

I really liked the little details you added - like Walburga Black being a prefect, and Nicholas Flamel in the Daily Prophet. And the sorting hat song was great!

Interesting to make the hat a Horcrux. I thought that was a really nice touch - the way it happened was believable; it certainly explains why the hat is able to think on its own, and it explains Tom's understanding of how to do it. The only thing I was left wondering is, if the hat is still a Horcrux, then Gryffindor is still partially alive/not quite dead, right? (I guess that's not really too important to the story you were telling, but I did wonder, lol.)

Great job on this!!

Author's Response: Hello! :)

I'm glad you were interested in this story, and thought the characterization was well done. I loved getting into Riddle's head, and imagining his observations and reactions. I loved picturing the world Riddle would have inhabited, especially with the older wizards.

Ah, I'm glad you liked the song! I loved writing it, though I worried I wouldn't do it justice.

Ok, I'm glad you thought the hat being a Horcrux made sense! It was just an idea I came up with and knew I just had to write, so I'm glad it was convincing. Hm, I had a couple others suggest writing a sequel one-shot about Gryffindor still being alive out there... maybe someday! :)

Thank you so much for this lovely review! :)
