Beautiful! Simply beautiful! There really is nothing else to say

Author's Response: I like your review. Simple, complimentary, nice. And I love your penname! Tee-hee.

But, if there was anything at all that ANYONE didn't like, don't be afraid of telling me! I need my big head deflated once in a while! :)

Review #2, by fancycherriiebud When Dawn Breaks

3rd June 2008:
Oh, wow, this was an amazing story. You captured the mood of little Tom in a perfect way, making this story evocative and a great read. You obvoiusly have a lot of talent, because you managed to make me feel actually sorry for Voldemort. You portrayed him not as a maniac, but just as a little boy, different from the others, wanting to fit in.
Wonderful, wonderful stuff.


Author's Response: Yay! My story is liked! I'm so happy that you did!

I really think that Tom was just a friendless kid, which is how a lot of murderers, maniacs and others grow up.

Thanks soo much! I really appreciate it!

Review #3, by xxMugglePrincess When Dawn Breaks

2nd June 2008:
This story was really interesting, and I really loved it. It was interesting to see Tom Riddle when he was younger and not all Voldemort-y. People aren't born evil, so I was glad that you portrayed him as it was likely he'd be, lonely and frustrated rather than evil at just six years old. Fantastic job overall.


Author's Response: Wow! Second review already? YAY!

That's what I thought too! I mean seriously, he would have to be corrupted at birth to be evil from childhood. Tom was mostly likely shunned by his classmates.

I imagine Tom as an intelligent child, so I portrayed him as just that.

Thanks very much for the review!

Review #4, by Juno When Dawn Breaks

2nd June 2008:
This is good and well writen :)

He must be a child genius if he can read Edgar Allan Foe at his age! I'm trying to read it at the moment and I'm struggling and I'm older then Tom there!

But the quote you used was absolutely perfect. I can actually see Tom reading and linking that quote.

So overall 10/10

Author's Response: YAY! *Happy Dance* First review!

Yes, I agree. I think Tom would relate to Edgar Allen Poe (or Foe! :) ) more than any other author. Poe was shunned by his step-father and shunned by society; as was poor Tom Riddle.

Thanks very much for my first review!
