Summary: Hermione goes back in time with one mission: to kill Tom Riddle before he ever comes to power. A difficult task, correct? An impossible one, she realizes, as a love between them grows stronger than anything she has ever known. Now Hermione has a choice to make. Will she condemn the Wizarding world to almost certain destruction, or will she take the life of the one boy she has ever loved?
Ooh... She doesn't trust him much, does she?
Oh! I thought she was going to tell him for a minute there. That wouldn't have been good now, would it?
Ooh... Ouch. Great chapter - nice suspense. The plot thickens... If I may dare to use such a cliched term.
Yes, Harry did seem to notice that, didn't he? Told Dumbledore something about that, I seem to recall. Voldemort reminds me a bit - a bit of me. Or something like that.
That was spectacular. Beautiful moment, and so... So right.
Tom reminds me too much of me.
Scary thoughts there.
Oh... So true.
Excellent. Love this chapter... Hermione/Helen so worried, Tom so dangerous - and this Minerva / Dumbledore situation! It adds a nice spark to an empty spot in the story
Oh! How could she do that to Tom? How could she?
*gasp* I'm taking the side of Tom Riddle. *shudder*
How could YOU leave me hanging like that? Must keep reading, don't have time for any more review...
Oh... That was wonderful.
I SOOO want to be Hermione.
Now there's the Dumbledore we know - sharp. Too sharp, perhaps.
That was wonderful. This is an awesome story... I can't wait for the next chapter. You are doing wonderfully, don't worry.
Oh! *tear* This is definently going on my favorites list. Wonderful... Absolutely great. I love the "thousand pieces of agony" part.
Wait... It stops?!? I so didn't realize this was the last chapter so far!
You're going to drive me mad, you are. Write quickly! This is absolutely magnificent.
Awww, how sweet!
Loved this chapter, too... It brings up a lot of questions, but you've moved your characters along spectacularly... I love how grown up Hermione seems, how elegant Tom is becoming, and how Malfoys are... Always Malfoys. xD Great one, again!
Wow.... This was awesome. Perfection to the utmost. You did excellently with the Quicksilver Quills, and you deserved every bit of it - This has become my favorite story EVER.
The development of emotion in this chapter was incredible - the soft side of Tom Riddle that we never imagined could appear, the side we all knew would come out, but at the same time never suspected... Wow. I loved it. When he said her name - well, that was like magic or something. Spectacular.
I also loved this part -
“Stop blubbering, you utter moron, and let me get a word in. What I did last night was a huge mistake, but I know that the House of Slytherin will follow me whether I care for the girl or not. Who are you, to question my authority? Don’t kid yourself, Malfoy.You will follow me to the gates of Hell if I ask it of you and you will do it without question. Is that not true?”
That was incredible, and so fully in the character of Tom Marvolo Riddle that I was blown away. Amazing job with the utter scintillation of that dialog...
The whole piece literally glows. Jo would be proud, I think.
Don't make us wait too long for the next chapter! You might kill some of us.
Author's Response: Wow what a wonderful review! Thanks so much for all of your support; you have no idea how much it helps me. :) Ah yes, Tommie does have a soft side, doesn\'t he? I love that Tom Riddle kid... he\'s an amazing creature, no? Ah the little passage you quoted above-- though less than syntactically aesthetic (now that I look at it), I really tried hard to convey a little bit of \'Lord Voldemort\' in Tom\'s character there... glad that you think I pulled it off. :D Ah, I\'m kind of glad Jo doesn\'t know this story exists... I cringe to think of her reaction to a Voldemort/Hermione story... :P Thanks again!
*breaths* That was utterly amazing. You kept me guessing until the last minute... I loved it.
Wish I could say more, but I seem to have become speechless with amazement.
