wow.. that's just so sad but amazingly written. The ending was very powerful, and the title itself dragged me to it. Beautifully sad and one of the most intriguing and captivating short-fics I've ever read. :)

Here I am, reviewing again. But thank you to everyone for the time reading this story, and for the wonderful praise! You're very much appreciated!

That was incredible. Somehow I found the story more appealing than I would have if you'd made up a character. The final conversation between Dorcas and Voldemort was thrillingly disturbing.

This story is amazing and beautiful, I was mesmerized. I can feel Dory at the lake in her eternal state of loss. You are a wonderful story teller.

Hmmm, is it horribly faux-pas that I am reviewing my own story?

It's not meant to be a review, more along the lines of a great big THANK YOU!!!!

Thank you to all of you who have reviewed... you made me feel wonderful with all of your praise!

I'm working on a new story now, I just hope that it's not going to be a total flop. Thanks again, everyone!

This is both breath taking and horrific. You made Tom Riddle into a human being before he became Voldemort, and breathed life into Dorcas Meadowes before he stole it away. Absolutly spectacular.

That was sad and poetically written!

Reviewid: 108557Chapter: 1
That was really cool! I guess you can't really write a sequel to that kind of story, but you CAN write more like it! I'm off to look at more of your stories.

Reviewer: AdeleDate: 2004-12-24
Reviewid: 108553Chapter: 1
This was absolutely gorgeous. I clicked on it and saw that it had already gotten 12 reviews, and thought, "This must be good, then."

Ohhh man. I've never been one for Tom Riddle stories, but this one's very different from the rest which I've tended to avoid. Excellently written, I'm taken aback. You have such a poetic way of telling a story. The format is great too, going through each of the years like you did. Well done.

Wow. This is absolutely amazing. I’ve always wondered about Dorcas Meadowes and why Voldemort killed her personally.

I think this was a spelling mistake (shown in capitals): “His face was so horribly CLAM that I slapped him.”
Did you mean: “His face was so horribly CALM that I slapped him.”

This is a great line: “…dead before he’d even really lived.”
Your writing is very powerful. Thanks for sharing this with us.

excellent job- i came here and found this story out of the blue, and enjoyed it immensely. most fics that aren't about cannon characters are poorly done, but this was great. i was absorbed the entire time.

Wow. Your story kept me reading until the very end. I don't know you but I truly truly hope you continue your writings. They are wonderful. To be honest, I have never been interested in Harry Potter novels, but you are an author whom stories are so..I can't even describe with words..I know from this story that you will become something immense, and your stories will evolve into timeless classics. I wish you the utmost best in your future. God Bless, Kathryne

Fantastic and gripping! Truly one of our future stars in literary accomplishments.

The beauty of this story is that it was penned by one that has not experienced so many of the emotions expressed in this story - true love, heartbreak, or hate; yet, her ability to tap into the depth of those feelings and convey them to the reader is masterful.

Wonderful work that I am certain is only a beginning of greatness to come. Be it as a hobby or a career, a lifetime of enjoyment through this talent lies in your future.

No matter how many times I read this story it still has the same effect every single time.

It takes skill to write like that.

Absolutely Wonderful!!! It shows just the possibilitys of Voldemort's past. It shows the possible past and foreshadows the present. Marvelous work.

A poignant story of a person who is only a name to us.

Well done.

Reviewer: Angelina WeasleyDate: 2004-12-23
Reviewid: 108356Chapter: 1
Brilliant. Absolutley brilliant. You never would think of anyone loving Tom, but with your story, it's possible. Her last words were so...powerful that I imagine that even Voldemort blanched, if just only for a second. I doubt that he never loved her, was just making that excuse to cover up the feeling, and to keep strong the Dark Lord's creed: Love is nothing, Power is EVERYTHING. And as she saw people and herself die, she realised that,no, I don't believe that. I was fighting for good as I saw fit. This story is so very well written, and so poignant. Especially the last line. If there is one thing to remember a friend by, it is the good times you had, and the way you laughed. I applaud you.
