Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it! :-) Thanks for R&Ring!!
kinda makes u feel bad about him...i like this idea its original
Author's Response: Yeah, after I wrote this fic, I started thinking about how maybe if someone was there for him, me might not have turned into such a horrible person. Thanks for R&Ring. :-)
I'm not quite sure if I can picture Voldemort writing a letter to his mother, especially with all of his bitter feelings towards his family, but you wrote it well all the same. I like how you ended the chapter. It ends his childhood life and opens another door into the pathway of the evil life he chooses. There was only one thing I noticed, and that was in the third paragraph of the letter, Tom describes his father as "retched", though I'm almost positive it should be "wretched". Overall however, it is a wonderful story. I wish you the best of luck for other chapters.
Author's Response: Thanks for the heads up on "wretched." :-) Re - Voldemort writing to his mom: I wanted to show that before Tom became the evil person he was (around the age of 11), he had a (albeit small) soft spot for his mom. The whole original idea for the story was for a contest on the Beta boards, where we had to write a character writing to someone who passed on. One of the suggestions was Voldemort writing to his mom.
Original idea! A letter to heaven! Just a bit of critisism: There was nothing new, it just followed the events that we read in the books. But it was still a nice story! Out of interest, why did you call it Furvos Cruor? You have some unusual ideas for stories, keep writing more.
Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing! :-D The 'letter to heaven' was written for a contest a while back on MNff. I know there's nothing new in the story, but I was trying to have Tom tell his mother, in letter form, what happened in his life. I have a few more chapters written for this story that I haven't uploaded yet. It'll focus on his life growing up, etc. It'll be like ITSOS a little, but this will be more HBP-friendly, lol. I called it Furvus Cruor because I wanted a Latin name for it. It means 'black blood'. The chapter title (Pecten Veneniferum) means Poisonous Quill. :-) I'm hoping to update this story soon, but I have to wait until another story chapter gets approved beforehand.
i loved it this was great
Author's Response: Thanks! :-D
it seems soo like Tom to write a letter like that... powerful but harsh.
Author's Response: Thanks! :-) Yeah, I tried hard to make it sound like something he'd write.
