It kind of shocked me a bit that it was the Dark Lord in the end, but in a good way. I think it is only fic where I have seen him before he got to be really evil and no human. Interstering. I really really like this fic. You did great job and as always I love your Bella.
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it. It gave me something to do on Christmas Eve. :D
I like it, but the time frame is a bit off. Actually it could be Rowling's fault, but unless Rudolphus is considerably older than Bella (wich, he could be) but assuming they're roughly the same age, that makes Bella roughly Voldemort's age. So, for the sake of the argument, Bella is sixteen and Voldemort is twenty. By Harry's second year, it has been fifty years since voldemort's fifth year, making voldemort (if he still has an age by then) 65. Sirius Black is roughly 35 in Harry's second year, meaning that he and Andromeda probably wouldn't have been born untill bella was around thirty. If we do want this to work, the fixed ages have voldemort being thirty years older than sirius. If sirius is five (easily old enough to be a giggling hellion) then voldemort and Rudolphus are thirty-five, and rudolphus is 19 years older than bella... ewww. Oh well, under all this math I really did like your story.
Author's Response: LOL. There are easier ways to figure out the timeline. I remember when I used to use all that complex logic, but the Lexicon has a timeline with birth dates that is very helpful for this. However, I will admit that I didn't check it this round. I know the age difference between the Black sisters is right. There are two years between Andromeda and either of her sisters. Sirius was a fair bit younger than his cousins, but Narcissa would've still been in school when he started at Hogwarts, so when she was thirteen he would've been old enough to make a nusiance of himself. Rodolphus is older than Bella, but I don't think the difference is that harsh. Voldemort is older than Rodolphus and Bellatrix, by a fair amount. He went to school with Hagrid and McGonagall. I think McGonagall was even teaching when Bella started school so there would be at least six or seven years between Bella and Voldy, but I think it's more. Sigh. Here I am doing the complicated thing instead of checking the Lexicon myself. Silly me. Anyway, I'm glad you liked the story.
Oh that was very interesting and exactly how I would picture Voldemort charming people.
Author's Response: Thank you! I've started to explore Voldemort's character during this timeframe lately. I think he's probably the most interesting here. He's still human, but getting very dangerous. Also, this would be the time when he met my Bella, which is something I've never paid enough attention to in the past. Thanks for the review!
