I just found this fic during a random search and I'm so glad that I read it. I've thought things along these lines before. But I've never been able to express it properly and certainly not with such eloquence. Your writing has impressed me.

My goodness. That was truly beautiful, and has left me in a state not quite coherent enough to allow for a good review. So, sorry. But everything about this is so wonderfully written...the darkness of the tone and Ginny's thoughts at the beginning, and the way you show how her own character has been shaped (Charlie's line about too cynical for 15 was really nicely done) by Tom, and just the fact--the surely honest fact--that Ginny still feels conflicted about him. And then the ending, the beautiful, brightening ending where we see just what Harry must mean to her.

My goodness. Just...really, really good.

Very, VERY cool. extreamley creepy but very realistic for a young girls state of mind. and yes, Riddle was very good-looking in the movie. I'm just glad that the actor says that he hopes they recast him in HBP. well let's keep our fingers crossed.

I like this fic. I this that it is a very good characterization of Ginny. The idea she thinks of "two Toms" seems like a very Ginny-like thing to do. Also, the comparision to Harry is astouding. It's almost as if the good Tom IS Harry, in a way. Which, I'm sure, is what Jo (and you) were thinking. Gosh, freakin' geniuses.

Some heavy-duty thinking here. I applaud your tackling of a very difficult relationship: the possessor and the possessed. And your insights into Ginny's liberation and growth from her horrific experience are very enlightening and, I think, dead on.

Grammatically speaking, I did have a little trouble following the changes in tense. It's tricky to put your protagonist in the present when so much of her story depends on long past events.
