this story was quite well written!
its nice to see a different light shone on voldemort....or what he might have been.
however, one teensy annoyance i found was with how you described Merope. In the Half-Blood Prince, jk rowling describes Merope as 'her hair was lank and dull and she had a plain, pale, rather heavy face. Her eyes, like her brother's, stared in opposite directions.'
However, you described her as beautiful with golden hair....
sorry to interupt but i thought Petunia was YOUNGER than Lily, not older. which would mean that Petunia coulnd't be 15 at this point.
this story is really good! this last chapter was a bit confusing but im sure it will all clear up in the next chapter!
I usually read romance fanfics but i wanted a change. i can't wait for the ending.
Author's Response: I\'m glad you enjoyed it. AU is fun, isn\'t it? I hope things are clearer in the next chapter! :)
Bellatrix and Tom Riddle—two of the most enigmatic characters in Harry Potter—have puzzled writers and readers alike since their equally horrifying introductions. Why did Bellatrix believe she was Lord Voldemort’s most dedicated and favored follower? Why did the Dark Lord indulge a woman he could have squashed like an insignificant bug; why did he allow her to continue in her ‘delusions,’ if, indeed, they were delusions?
I believe that these allowances are not simply coincidences. Why should the most feared dark wizard of all time cater to a pawn? There must have been prior connections between the two to create this bond.
In “Black as Snow,” we glimpse a snippet of Tom Riddle’s life at Hogwarts, his (hypothetical) introduction to Bellatrix, and, afterwards, the special bond the witch and wizard shared … then, and now.
Created for the wonderful rita_skeeter in MNFF’s Ravenclaw Christmas Exchange, 2006.
