Chapter: Chapter 5: Deceiving the Deceiver

Absolutely brilliant! When are you going to write more? Because I can't wait to read it. It's great what you've done so far. One of the best I've read. Keep up the good work!

Author's Response: Thank you so much for the lovely, wonderful, SPECTACULAR review!!!! One of the best you've read?!!! Holy shit!!! You literally had me screaming and bouncing around the room like a complete dork for about ten minutes straight!!! (Sorry, about the excessive exclaimation points, but I am just so excited!!!) I don't know when I will able to update for this story, but it will be at least a month. Sorry.... I just have to work on my other stories as well (even though this one is by far my favorite one to write) since I have kind of neglected them. But don't worry, I will DEFINITELY update this story, no matter how long it takes. Again, thank you, thank you, thank you!!! :)

Chapter: Chapter 5: Deceiving the Deceiver

I'm positively happt about making sure to make it a SLOW moving Hermione/Tom. Otherwise, it'd be simply impossible. There has to be a real storyline for it to work. After all, this is Riddle we're talking about! So, as far as this reader goes, feel free to take it nice and easy!

I liked Voldy's innitial ramble about Hermione trying to pull his let! That was quite fun!! I really want to see where this all leads!

Also, the Ron/Hermione is pretty ok! Good story! Enjoyable chapter!

Author's Response: Thanks for the review (yes, I know that I say that every time, but I really do mean it)! It's good to know that Tom's rambling (or plotting and scheming--Bwahaha!!! lol) was fun to read, because it was really fun to write (I love writing from Tom/Voldemort's POV, for some reason), and I was hoping that it would be equally entertaining to read. I, too, think that slow-moving Tomione fics are the best, as they tend to be the most believable, so it's nice to know that at least one person won't get frustrated wtih the pacing (although the same thing cannot be said for my updates on FFN for this story--I haven't updated this story since March on there, and that is my primary site), despite the fact that I try to make the chapters themselves interesting. I am not sure if I want to post my other stories on here or not, but while I am making up my mind on that, you can always go to FanFiction. Net, and read my other two stories (under the same penname), if you are interested, of course. They are both about Tom Riddle (I am obsessed with his character, and I have somewhat of an unhealthy crush on him. It's really sad.) Yes, I know, I am shamelessly pimping my other stories. Sorry.... I am going to end my ridiculously long reply here. So, thank you so very much for both reading and reviewing!!! :)

Chapter: Chapter 5: Deceiving the Deceiver

And yet another lovely chapter! I'm fascinated by how they both think they're underestimating each other. By the way, I happen to agree with your note on Ron, haha. Nice work!

Author's Response: Thanks for another lovely review! It's good to know that someone else has the same opinion of Ron as me. I thought that people would hate me for bashing Ron, but I guess that since this is a Tom/Hermione fic, we don't have many devout Ron/Hermione shippers or Ron-lovers reading this story. :)

Chapter: Chapter 1: A House on a Hill

Hehehehehe. I think, by the time you finish writing, I will have submitted a plethora of reviews.

But I've got to say, I never saw this coming (Hermione taking on an alias and trying to trick Tom like how she did). I did read the plot summary, but this isn't what I expected, and frankly, I'm amazed. I'm permanently waiting to know what happens next; I'm so glad you update quickly! :]

Author's Response: Oh my god! Thank you so much!!! You officially just made me blush (and, believe me, my whole face turns bright, bright red when that happens since my skin is pale, and it's rather unattractive. lol)! Unfortunately, after this next chapter, updates will not be as frequent as they are now. Chapter 5 is the last chapter that I have written for this story so far, and I have other stories that I'm working on, too. You have no idea how much I procrastinate (well, now you do...). I first posted this story on FFN on 4/28/09, so it's been about a year and a half, and I have written five chapters. As I said before, I have other stories that I have been working on as well, so it's not just procrastination that is the issue. However, I will definitely update as quickly as possible (after chapter 5). Expect an update a day or two from now! :)

Chapter: Chapter 4: Manipulating the Manipulator

Alrighty, I very much like the way this is going!!

I think the alias for Herms is oddly fitting!!

I think it just might work, you know, squeezing info out of Tom... I mean, he tends to overly underestimate people he deems inferior... so if he thinks he's dealing with a silly 7th year girl... he might spill info!

Good idea Herms... But is she going to keep that a secret from Harry and Ron?

Author's Response: Wow. Three reviews from you in the same day! Thank you so much!!! Yes, she is going to keep it a secret, because she knows that both Harry and Ron would stop her, even if she explained what she was doing. Otherwise, I am pretty sure that Hermione would tell them, but she knows that they would never understand or that there was a slight chance that they would, and she does not want to take that chance. You're right, Tom does tend to underestimate people he deems inferior, so Hermione is using that weakness to her advantage, but will it work? You'll find out in the next chapter when I post it. (Yes, it's already written, but I am going to be an evil author and wait a day or two before I post.) ;)

Chapter: Chapter 3: Lucky Number Seven

The key of great value is interesting... But totally clueless as to what it might open. The name's going to be a taboo soon and the trio is still using the name. This is going to be tricky for them.

But I'm just dying to know that Tom responded to Hermione's rant!! I really, really am!! Waiting for the next chap!!

Author's Response: You will eventually find out what it opens (obviously), but it will definitely be a while. I will probably drop hints in the story here and there, but that's about it. Tom doesn't respond to Hermione's rant at all, so I'm sorry to disappoint. I will probably wait a day or two to post chapter 5, but it's the last chapter that I have written so far. That means that after it's posted, updates will not happen very frequently. By the way, thank you for another review! It certainly made my day!

Chapter: Chapter 2: Battle of Wits

I LOVED Hermione's slashing words at Riddle! That was brilliant, and almost surely the only time that prick EVER got talked back and did not get to torture whoever did the talking. I think I'd copy chick lit on that journal, or poetry or sth equally girly just for the sake of annoying Tom out of hs skull!! LOL! Making cartoons of Harry killing him would be nice as well!! Hehehe!

Author's Response: Thanks for the review! That's a good idea! It would be hilarious if Hermione wrote girly poetry in the diary ( like, about how much she loves Ron, or something). I am not sure if I can put something like that in the story with the direction that it's headed, but I will if possible. ... Or maybe making annoying anagrams of his name would be a good way to go.... ;)

Chapter: Chapter 3: Lucky Number Seven

Because I mentioned the "openness" issue before, I decided to point out that after reading chapter 2, it wasn't a problem at all :). Terrific work!

Also, I loved this chapter, so much. I always wanted to read an account of how all the stuff the Trio never heard about came to be (like the Taboo, and Thicknesse's loyalty). Update soon! :D

Author's Response: Thank you for another wonderful review! I will definitely update soon. Actually, I think that I'll put chapter 4 into the queue right now. (Both chapter 4 and 5 are already written, but that's about it....) I am glad that chapter 2 made the "openness issue" a non-issue, because I was a tad concerned about the plausibility, and I am also happy that you think that I did a terrific job with it. :)

Chapter: Chapter 1: A House on a Hill

I'm a tad concerned about her openness as well, but I understand your explanation. However - and I really don't mean to sound nitpicky or anything - Hermione's birthday is in September. I apologize, that was peevish of me. Anyway, I really like this, and I'm eager to discover where the story is going to go! :)

Author's Response: Thanks for the review! Ugh, I'm an idiot! I swear, I knew that Hermione's birthday was in September, but I guess that I just forgot when I wrote this. Thanks for pointing that out. I might just have to fix that. I didn't know that the "openness issue" was going to be a big deal, but I suppose that I might just have to fix that as well. As long as it improves my story, I do not mind making changes. What I don't get is why the mods didn't catch this stuff.... Oh well. However, I am very glad that you are enjoying the story so far. As I said in response to the other review, the second chapter is in the queue waiting to be validated, so you will soon find out what happens next!

Chapter: Chapter 1: A House on a Hill

Uhm... I kind of like it, but I am just not entirely convinced on Hermione writing so openly, and, of course, such importnat matters (being on Voldy's tracks, giving names, hunting Horcruxes) on something that Voldy left behind!! It seems simply so reckless!!

I'd buy it if they talked it through and wrote purposefully, suspecting they might get info out of it... But not openly like that... And without telling the guys!!

Other than that, I like it. Interesting the way Hermione gets thoroughly annoyed by Ron, but still admits there's more than a friendship going on with him... or she thinks so... I liked that detail... I want to see how this story goes on...

Author's Response: Thank you for the review! ...And you are my first reviewer, too! I do see your point about Hermione writing in the diary so openly, and, I'll admit, it's not exactly the most believable thing in the world, but they (meaning Tom and Hermione) have to meet somehow. Also, Hermione is absolutely sure that it wasn't Riddle's diary, and in her arrogance (I mean, Hermione is almost never wrong about anything, so why would this be any different?), she was, uncharacteristically, reckless. As for her telling the guys, she does, but it's in the next chapter, which I have literally just submitted to the queue. Sorry, I know that I sound defensive, but I'm really not. You had a very valid point, and I just wish that I would have thought of it sooner, so thanks for pointing that out. Again, thank you for taking the time to review!
