This fic in one word: amazing. Really, to be able to realistically create a Hermione/Tom Riddle fic and break my heart--you know the auther has mad skill. Be forewarned, once you start it you will not be able to stop. Took me a few hours, but I got all the way through. On a side note, I also bawled for a solid half hour afterwards.
Hermione goes back in time with one mission: to kill Tom Riddle before he ever comes to power. A difficult task, correct? An impossible one, she realizes, as a love between them grows stronger than anything she has ever known. Now Hermione has a choice to make. Will she condemn the Wizarding world to almost certain destruction, or will she take the life of the one boy she has ever loved?
