Chapter: Year One (iii)

Omg this is my new favorite fan fic!! I like to think of how things were before harry potter especially in terms of the "villians" ;] and you sure bring voldemort to the light..

I'm really enjoying this story so please update when you get a chance. :]

Author's Response: Thank you, and thanks for reading! I also like to imagine how things were before the actual story started, which is why I love historical fics. I'll definitely continue the updates, and hopefully the future delays won't be as big as this one was.

Chapter: Prologue

Very interesting prologue. I can't wait to read more. Strangely, all of a sudden, I was struck at the very beginning that you were writing about Moaning Myrtle. She's often a sidekick in a story but I've never read a story about her except on another site and then it was really a story about young Snape. I'm glad I found this story.

Author's Response: Thank you, and welcome aboard :)

I actually didn't see that many fics that included Moaning Myrtle as a major character, and that surprised me too. I think that her character and her situation is a very interesting avenue to write about, especially when you're doing a fic about Tom Riddle.

She was one of the things that interested me most when I first read The Chamber of Secrets. "What was school like for her if she was bullied all the time? Did she really have no friends? Why would she run off to a bathroom when there's a mysterious entity on the loose that's attacking everyone?"

All those questions will be answered (at least in the fan-fiction realm) in this story. Thanks for reading!

Chapter: Prologue

This is a highly intriguing and very well written start. I'm interested in Nella, in the detached way she talks about her friendship with Myrtle, which makes me trust her narratorial voice a lot more than I would if it were passionate. It also creates a sense of distance which, particularly in the last line, that you acknowledge that she is speaking from a definite point in the future, rather than just reminisces. It's interesting that we already now so much about Nella, her attitude to her parents, to magic and to Myrtle.

One minor nitpick- Myrtle says "Mom" which is oddly jarring as that is very much an Americanism.

I am also intrigued by the italics. I suspect that that's Tom Riddle but I'm not sure. Anyway I'll be reading the next chapter with great interest. Alex

Author's Response: Thank you for understanding exactly what this prologue was about! And yikes... I must have missed that 'Mom' part. I'll sneak an edit later when I have the time. I believe that the proper replacement would be 'mum', but that's only from my limited knowledge of British English. At any rate, I'll do my best to fix it. Thanks for pointing it out! As for the italics, that's just a way of introducing the memory. You were right about Nella narrating the prologue from a time in the future, so think of the italics as her 'glimpse into the past'. It's a bit of what happened before, kind of like taking a look into the Pensive. That's my best explanation. xD The rest will become clear when you read the first chapter. As for Tom Riddle, he doesn't play a role here... yet. *wink*
