Review #1, by LilyEPotter Riddle Me This

6th March 2014:
This was an interesting look into the early life of Tom Riddle, however I did have a little bit of trouble following when the story was from Tom's point of view or Valerie's point of view. After what Tom had done at the orphanage, it would make sense that the children who had been there would have been apprehensive about him and knew exactly when he would be back, if only to stay out of his way. It's too sad that no one had warned Valerie about him before he had returned or warned her to be cautious of him. On the other hand, it didn't seem like Tom was being as careful as he had been previously concerning his homework. If he didn't want questions about his homework or his other plans, then why bring out the parchment, quill and ink? Especially when Valerie has shown to be curious. How sad that his loss of control with magic cost Valerie her life. Though this gives a good reason as to why he remained alone as well as why he was willing to allow Lily to live as Snape had requested. I'm curious if he ever got an owl about having used magic during the summer and how he explained what happened to the authorities.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review!
I've had a couple of people complain about the difficulty of transitioning between characters on another story that I'm writing, and I am working on improving this.
He wasn't being as careful because he was starting to get feelings for Valerie, but he didn't realise-doing his work etc. with her in the room just felt natural to him after a while because of his feelings!
