I think this is a really great look at what Ginny might have been thinking/feeling/doing as she fell into the events of CoS. I love the fact that she thinks of Ron, Harry, and Hermione as 'The Golden Trio' and the fact that she doesn't have any close friends...that fits in with canon, for me...wouldn't one of her friends have raised the alarm? I really love the fact that she screams out her frustration and lonliness, that she lets her emotions out that way. She's not quiet, as Ron said.
Tom Riddle...ah, now that's a good portrait of him. Smart and cunning, able to act and react swiftly and without panicking. You have an excellent, and very subtle, shift of emotions when you shift characters. Ginny's bit was very emotional and Tom's was very cool adn calm. Even without the obvious switch in POV I would have known one section from the other.
Finally, the Ginny-Tom interaction! I think it's neat that he is a bit rude and insulting to her. That really fits to me! She's so used to it that she doesn't really become wary when Tom tells her not to tell anybody about the robes and paint. I think the ending bit is really good too...I can see her starting to become a bit suspicious. I can see this leading to her figuring out that Tom isn't what he's pretended to be and ditching the diary.
All in all, this is a great story. I can easily fit this in with the CoS canon.

"I snicker at the thought that it was partially my doing that gave her eternal life as a ghost."


He's so EVIL! I never thought about it really, but Tom's use of Ginny was so violating, using her body like that. Poor, little thing. And then that little cutting remark about him wondering if she'll ever be powerful enough. He's so horrible. But the way you depicted Ginny's isolation, totally made it plausible that she could fall in his trap like that. Your award title was rightfully earned. Great job! :)

That...slimy...son of...Slytherin! Look what he did with Ginny!
Sorry, I always get mad when I think of what Tom did with Ginny, and I haven't even CONSIDERED the possibility that he would speak ill about Harry to her.
Very nice piece of fanfiction, though. :)
