I am speechless.
I know you're probably not even going to read this review, since you're not writing anything anymore on this site, but I just couldn't leave this story without reviewing. I hope you read it some time, though.
Your story has kept me busy for more than a week. Every night, I was reading this story and it was absolutely wonderful. The Tom Riddle you've put down is brilliant, I can't even hate him anymore, for his thoughts seem so logical, even though we all know how wrong he is in the end.
I'm actually a bit sad it's over, I've enjoyed it so much. Thank you for this absolutely great story, I think I'll have a hard time finding another story of this quality.
10/10 Report Review
This was a wonderfully writen and thought out story. I rarely get to ready fan fics that i have enjoyed as much as this one. (Especially Completed Ones!)
I certianly hope your other stories are just as enjoyable as this one...but... (Don't worry it's nothing too bad.)
Repeating the same thing on each of your chapters was a tiny bit off-putting. As was having no actualy chapter titles. Chapter titles can (If clever or intresting) can make people click the mouse even harder :P
Other than that i really enjoyed this and hope you continue to post new stories :) Report Review
awesome i really liked this series, it was in my mind the perfect Riddle to Voldemort story, really well written and it captured the whole Tom complex. Very nice work Report Review
You know, this is one of the first stories that I ever really really enjoyed on this site. I know you're not here anymore - I'm assuming not, as your other fic is abandoned - but I still want to tell you how wonderfully written I think this is, in case you ever stumble back here. It's a crying shame that it's never gotten more reviews, when I've seen fics not half as good with hundreds and even thousands.
Your Tom is incredible and this whole fic is so chilling and realistic. He doesn't dive straight into madness, nor is it made stupidly obvious that he is, as so many fanfic authors tend to do. He doesn't even seem mad to me, yet I can see so easily how he becomes Lord Voldemort from this point. It's possibly the most realistic portrayal of Tom that I've ever read and he fascinated me. So many authors just see one layer to Tom Riddle, but you write him as he truly is - not a madman, not an idiot, but a person with layers just like everyone else.
So, basically, I really loved it. I haven't read it in a while but I plan to again soon. I wrote a Tom fic of my own a good while reading this - you made me want to take on the challenge myself. I hope you come back to read your reviews someday, and I wish this had gotten far more. It totally deserves them! Report Review
This is really very good. Your tone isn't overly dramatic, there aren't any dismal black souls or what-have-you, it's all very real. Report Review
i like your riddle. hes a sarcastic poet. not as nasty as i would have imagined tho. Report Review
This is perhaps one of the best fanfics I have ever read, and it is the only one that tells Tom's story. Thank you for writing this wonderfull story. Report Review

c_ya and fankz for the GREAT read Report Review
This is an awesome story! But I'm actually not here to (just) review.
Do you have a website? Or are your stories elsewhere? Since HPFF is closing down *sniffles* I'm trying to keep track of my favorite authors (that would include you!) Report Review
"asawatskl;a" ? ;)
I swear, I'm not going to review every single chapter, I'm not!!! Report Review
That was the best sorting yet! ^-^ Report Review
oh! *whimpers* I am soooo in love with your version of Tom! *hugs him*Author's Response: Thanks! Your reviews mean so much to me. I really appreciate it. :) Report Review
I'm only through the first two chapters, but I already know it's one of the best stories around. I can't wait to finish reading it! Keep up the great work! Report Review
Brilliant! Report Review
Truly, a superb story! You have created an engaging backstory for the Dark Lord and presented him as a real being, rather than as a mere villain. You have performed a feat equal to the great historians, who show us that dictators are often men of genius with tragic flaws or myopic ideologies who believe in their own virtues. I want to thank you for this masterwork and compliment you on your vision. Report Review
I'm only on chapter 4 so far, but I thought I'd mention I really like Tom's interactions with DD so far. Well, I like it all really; I've been reading it all night instead of doing homework. :-) Thanks for writing such a great story!

I just wanted to let you know: So far, the story has been great. I've only read three chapters of your story, and am about to read the fourth, and your talent with words is quite beyond what I expected(i was looking for a good fanfic and most of the Tom Riddle story authors are absolutely dull) You use plenty of great vocabulary (I even had to look up what a couple of words meant) and I congratulate you on making a fanfic in which I am now so completely engrossed. Cheers. Report Review
it was one of the best story`s that i have ever readperhaps u would n`t believe it but your story was the first story that i hve read as a fanfiction and i`m really glad that i did. thanx for ur great story by the way. i`m lookin for more stories from u especially if it is about tom. thanx again.Author's Response: I'm glad you liked the last two new chapters. Report Review
would u reallly finish it in friday? wow i`m really anxious for that day then Report Review
The Broken Victory should be finished by friday. I've been so busy polishing it, I neglected to just end it, lol. But, I shall end it first, then go back and tighten things up. Thanks for bearing with me! I LOVE how supportive the few of you where are my reviewers have been. On here or on other boards, you've really inspired me, and I can't thank you enough for that. I wouldn't have finished this story without you all. Report Review
