Summary: During the bitter weeks of December 1935, young Tom Riddle found shelter in a hidden alcove and in a strange boy who surprisingly liked him. The boy was compassionate, curious, and far too optimistic, and he had unexpectedly shown up on the street one cold day when Tom was feeling lonely. His name was Harry, and if Tom could ever call someone a friend, it would have to be him.
I'm so glad you've taken the time to add your own imagination to Tom Riddle. He is such a character with so little given, that I love to read what others think he was like. You tried giving Tom a friend, and I really liked how he coped with it but was ultimately unable to keep one. The only thing I would ask is to hear more about the absence of his mother that you mention toward the end of the story. I really liked that detail.
Well done, I highly enjoyed it! I'm also writing a story about Tom Riddle, but it takes place after the orphanage and hogwarts. Keep up the good stories!
Author's Response: Thank you very much for reading and reviewing my little story! I absolutely loved writing it, and I too really enjoy reading stories about Tom. I am fascinated with his character. At the moment I'm writing another story involving him and Harry, which has also been interesting so far. I'll make sure to check out your story!
