In the language of literature, there exists a seemingly-concrete, antonymous relationship between good and evil, light and dark, hero and monster.  And yet, we often disregard the transition from one to another, in which the 'bad guy' becomes 'good.'

     Perhaps it was the cruel mistreatment of Tom Marvolo Riddle as a child, or maybe it was the bloodline of Slytherin's heir himself that made the boy into the 'monster' who cannot be named.  Or, perhaps it was simply because he did not know that his heart would beat in such a frenzy, that his cheeks would redden like a crimson rose, and that his normally-calm facade would melt under the simple gaze of the time-travelling heroine.  If I were to bet, I'd say it's the latter.

	But it matters not why Voldemort could not love, for this is not a story about Voldemort.  This is the story of Tom Marvolo Riddle, and how he came into direct conflict and company with the 'brightest witch of her age' ... fifty-years ahead.  This is the story of love's recognition, in which the force does not suddenly develop between two people, but a poignant emotion, different for each individual, is uniquely described to be 'love.'  Maybe Tom Riddle never loved, much like that of Voldemort.  However, as one chooses to stubbornly believe, love existed for Tom Marvolo Riddle as long as he chose to believe that he loved Hermione Jean Granger.

DISCLAIMER: I do not own any of the characters detailed in this book, nor any of the quotations and plot taken from "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows."  They belong to J.K. Rowling and Warner Brothers.  I do not own the individual graphics in the cover, although I do own the composition/compilation of the cover.  The media I post belongs to its owners.

Such a beautifully written story! Has to be my favorite one of this ship. It actually makes sense and stays true to the characters and facts!
