| Kou Shun'u 1/6/09 . chapter 1
love the idea of riddle keeping a journal in case he becomes insane later. like how he was also inspired by slytherin and slytherin's story.
i like how nagani came into his company.
liked how the journal has a commentary.
really like tom standing up for Benjamin Addlemere.
i like the upbeatness thus far.

It's very very nice, I love Tom's point of view, very funny.
Keep up the good work and update soon.

Poor Tom and his lost sanity points. LOL
A fun story to read. I'm looking forward to further updates.

Poor fellow can't catch a break [the Sabine family's dad is a nutter, the mom is a mother hen that will suffocate a child to death with love and attention; boring, diarrhea-mouth Slughorn seeking him out to prattle-on at him, and suspicious Dumbledore lurking around the corners stalking him], hey? LOL

Very entertaining-I love it; especially the bantering between Tom and his friends in the "Private Notes".
Well done-keep up the good work!

I love the Private Notes segments. Very funny, and you can actually get more of a feel for who TR is/was through them than the "Other than that, I don't think very much happened."
I do hope you're not abandoning this, as I think it's brilliant.

That line about the difference between journals and diaries is quite possibly the most brilliant (and definitely the wittiest) explanation I have ever heard, and I think I'll probably be quoting you far too often. 'Cause seriously. That was awesome.

Ahaha, this is really funny. I love Tom's thoughts and quirks; hope to see more journal entries soon.

This is a really funny story. Your a good writer! When is the next chapter going to come up?
| Right or Ryn 6/7/08 . chapter 3
Your humorous but unmistakably canon Tom makes me tremendously happy. But really, this whole story makes me happy. It's so, so, so refreshingly original. In fact, it's like an ice cold glass of water, and I'm dying of dehydration out in the figurative barren wasteland that is fanfictiton. Please, don't let me die. I'm too young... and too pretty. Besides, you wouldn't want my life on your conscience. That'd be no fun a'tall. SO, update! ...please?
kthxbai. (That was lolspeak just for you! see? I'm nice.)

Dude, this was some funny shit. Like, out loud laughing, which I never do. I'm horrified you're making this remorseless killing machine so damn likable. Horrified in a good way, of course.
"Also, the only explanation I can find for her hair being so... terrible is that she arranges it and frizzes it on purpose, however she can not possibly think that it's in any way flattering."
HA. I love how that is thrown into Tom's semi-serious musings.
"For example, when Slughorn sneaks up on me and surprises me utterly by saying things like, "So, Tom, my young man, that girl's rather pretty, eh?" and smiling in a way that I can only describe by presenting you, the reader, with the following, disturbing scenario, which is that you have a great lump of white gelatin in a bowl. You tap the bowl, the gelatin jiggles, and you can see your face in the gelatin, jiggling with it. The gelatin is speaking to you. It will not shut up. Everything it is saying is completely and totally inane, and even though you have only tapped the bowl once and only slightly, the gelatin continues to jiggle. For hours. I do hope my description is sufficiently horrifying."
I'm afraid, dear Tommy Boy, it was sufficiently hilarious.
| JellyBellys 4/19/08 . chapter 1
"In fifth year I became a prefect, opened the Chamber of Secrets, and received an Order of Merlin First Class for framing Hagrid. Other than that, I don't think very much happened."
HA. Sick! I love the twisted black humor of this, and the incident of the moth. You are insanely gifted at writing.

It was just by chance, the other day, that I decided to log onto this site for the first time in months, and it was just by chance, this morning, that I decided to check my favourite stories. It was not by chance, however, that I squealed with delight when I saw this had been updated with not one, but TWO chapters since the last time I looked!
Seriously though, I don't think any author on this site has managed to write a fic that manages to incorporate all my favourite aspects of writing - the wonderfully vast range of vocabulary, the sarcasm, a marvellous plot, originality and of course, Mr Riddle, hahaha. I really do honestly love your writing and I find myself frequently laughing, especially at the way you carry things through, the insanity points, for example, and the references in the questions that Thea wrote. I really cannot express my love for this fic enough, it is just everything I adore.
And actually, to tell you the truth, I usually run as a fast as I can from first person stories - something about them seems so juvenile and I never feel like people can stretch it enough to make the story credible and interesting. You are the first person to ever switch that around, and you do it absolutely marvellously.
Sorry for the essay, but I do really love this fic, haha.

Toms is crazy because he has lost too many sanity points!
