I first read this a long time ago, but had forgotten what it was about. Just now reread it. Wow! This is really good. I like all the characterizations, the extrapolations--not just the alternate Tom Riddle, but also Remus, Severus Snape and his potential descent into darkness, Peter Pettigrew's bitter jealousy, James and Lily's fundamental incompatibilities--and how they might have played out in a different universe.

I also really like the writing. Several favorite lines: the reference to crying like a bully would cry, and how if Remus ever told Harry he had been (in a way) the cause of his parents' separation it would be the "worst day's work" he ever did.

And Professor Gaunt, again. A person of great (if flawed) strength. A magnificent creation, in my opinion. Well done.

That is the kind of "what if" game I like the best.

What if Tom Riddle had listened to Dumbledore before it was too late?

Very good idea to make the story from his PoV, too. And all the little side bits. Peter's minor betrayal. The Potters not staying together. Gives the story as a whole a much more "real" feel to it.

Excellent short story. Thank you.

Fascinating. Your stories make me think more than any others here.
Yours aren't really feel good like some of the other fictions here, but they give me a different perspective and make me think. Thankyou

Creepy. Really, really creepy. Don't like Lily and James splitting, but the rest of it is a really interesting picture of what could have been. Well done.

Woah! Quite a different outcome for Tom. What might have been indeed. I thought that was who it was, but I wasn't sure until partway through the story. Severus was attempting to do the Voldemort shtick?

Whoa. That was... whoa. (In an awesome way.)

You have such a glorious gift for putting words on paper to make such richly textured images. I think I'm a little envious.

To think that one small moment of sanity might of turned Tom Riddle into Professor Gaunt, is thought provoking.
