Mysterious. The ambiance is perfect. I like the hints of Dracula.

Author's Response: Thanks. I’m a big fan of Dracula (the novel). -N-

Chapter: Killers

This is different than your other works; a lot darker in context and in tone. The relationship between Tom and Camelia is creepy, and once again, even as a youth, Tom Riddle is frightening. Something makes me wonder if Tom had something to do with the bomb hitting the church that just happened to house the remaining children from “that orphanage”.

I didn’t think the killing curse would work on a Vampire, seeing she was already dead, and I am surprised that Tom wouldn’t have realized that. Or perhaps he did, and just didn’t care, knowing he had frightened Camelia enough that she would never be a threat to him.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
I've recently reread Dracula, and I've just been reading a collection of MR James ghost stories. That made me want to try creepy. I wondered about that bomb, too. But that would be underage magic. Nevertheles, I think he had something to do with it.
Did Tom make a mistake, or did he simply want to panic her? Of course, if he has destroyed all her resting places, she'll be severely wekened, and will have to flee to Transylvania.

Very convincing story, we know that Tom went down some very strange roads trying to cheat death.
Like the idea of Camelia becoming less evil because of her contact with good and bad.

Author's Response: Thanks
The idea that Tom would consider becoming a vampire was one I really wanted to explore.
Camelia somehow managed to take control of the story. Can she mend her ways?

This story is quite unlike anything you've ever done! I really like it. Not much is known about vampires in Harry Potter and I like this aspect with Riddle that you've created very. It's very well done!

Looking forward to more of any story!
Cheers!

Author's Response: Thanks, Katie.
The WW2 setting was essential, because Tom needed to be the right age. And Camelia is (almost) straight out of Bram Stoker's Dracula.
Next, another Challenge one-shot.

Wow, really really interesting! This is different from a lot of your work, but still fits well into your expanded-upon-canon world, and meets your high standard of quality.

I love the concept of Tom exploring various means towards immortality from a young age, hopefully we'll get a chance to see some more? Also, it seems to me that you've mentioned Camelia in a story before, I think maybe Strangers though I'm not positive. It wouldn't surprise me if she'd already been woven into one of your plots!

Author's Response:
Thanks for the review.

This story came about from a (long ago) conversation about what alternatives to Horcruxes young Tom might have considered, and also from a desire on my part to have a vampire who isn't a sensitive and caring soul.

Cameli appeared in one chapter of "The Hufflepuff" and got a namecheck in Strangers.

Fantastic! This has very ominous overtones, and was definately enjoyable.
I can see Tom Riddle seeking any way to gain immortality, but he is/was naive.
This was very striking- will there be a sequel? I look forward to whatever you write next! :D :D :D

Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
The idea behind this story has been lurking for some time. Tom Riddle must have looked at a number of possibilities. Trying to create a philosopher's stone would be an alternative, but we know that he had no compunction about killing.
No sequel, not exactly, but the world has not heard the last of Camelia Tepes. :-) Next, a James S Potter one shot, and after that, Hunters and Prey.

Wow- this was pretty intense! Umm, I know Voldemort wouldn't need a reason, but did he have a particular motive in destroying Camellia?

Author's Response: Ruchira Thank you. A reason? He'd told her, or at least hinted that, he was looking for a way to live forever. Was that enough reason? -N-
