Hey there! I'm here from the review swap on the forums - just thought I'd let you know ;)

I loved this one-shot, and to do this in 500 words is extremely impressive. I'd have to say that this is a young Tom Riddle - who else has such a penchant for destroying things, and such a prominent sense of superiority?
I really love the way you described the burning of the flower and the way it changes colour and crumbles as it burns. The way you've captured Riddle's mind at that point is very effective - thinking that the flower was useless, weak as it turned to ash. It really captures his view on his world, and is almost a representative of what he would become in later life, being the fire destroying and degrading everything in its path as it sweeps down the flower.
I also really liked the section where the other boy finds Riddle with the burnt flower. When the boy backs off, and Riddle almost feels hurt because he believes his power to be special and chosen, it does give is a good insight into his mind again. To me, at least, Voldemort/Tom Riddle is extremely proud and does have one major superiority complex, but it was probably partly born from rejection and misunderstanding.
I think you captured the essence of Tom Riddle (at least, I'm hoping that's who he is or I'm going to be looking pretty silly right now) very well, and I don't think it's been rushed at all. If you'd had more words in which to write it, that would have been good too, but I don't think this seemed rushed. I'm only sorry I can't give more of a balanced review and give you a couple of pointers to improve on - but then again, I'm not sorry, becuase that means I've just read a really fab piece of writing!
Well done and thankyou for giving me the pleasure of reading this,

Author's Response: HI! HI YOU WONDERFUL PERSON YOU~

I'm so thankful you stopped by to read and review, even if it is for the Review Exchange so...thank you. :'D

The burning flower was definitely one of my favourite parts to write in this story, it was fun picturing it and portraying it.

I agree with you on the 'almost hurt' part. Even he is human, too. He was once innocent as well. I believe most evil are from misconstrued beliefs born with pain. It's not an excuse, nor is it right, but it is still painful.

I'm neither going to confirm or negate your conclusion, but I'm happy about what you have to say about the character and that you think the story doesn't seem rushed. That's okay about the review not having much to point out, the story was short too anyway so there isn't much to address.

Again, thank you so much for reading this, I'm satisfied knowing you enjoyed the read.

Lots of Love,
