Hi guys! It's Hayden.
I've been writing from Tom Riddle's perspective, lately, just to study him and his thoughts and opinions. I've got a drabble, which I intend to turn into a one-shot, that is mostly about Tom Riddle's thoughts about his being.
All I wanted to ask was: What do you think his thoughts might have been? In my drabble, Tom has disliked his face and his body since he murdered his father because he looks so much like him. Tom knows that his being is useful, especially now when he's among so many other people.
But surely Tom knew the consequences when he was creating his multiple Horcruxes? Do you think there may have been multiple reasons that Tom created the Horcruxes, an attempt at immortality being the greatest one, and a desire to destroy what he sees as his father's body a smaller one? We know Tom loves himself, but perhaps not his body.
