Reviews for A History of Vengeance

I love the way you described Voldemort's first significant attack. His declaration of "I am Lord Voldemort" is a declaration of his identity; an anagram of the name he was given, twisted when he was a child trying to create a powerful, unique identity for himself. Voldemort would love having that hidden meaning there, that declaration of the core of the identity he chose to develop, used to inspire fear and awe in the hearts of those he believed to be beneath him.

p.s. Riddle became horrible to look at after his resurrection

This is an incredibly powerful piece of writing. It is also very complete like a poem, but a poetry form would diminish the ragged truth of it somehow. Thank you.

Wow ! This is amongst the top fanfics written ! Getting a peek behind enemy lines is always fascinating. And it's definitely mind-blowing when it's this brilliantly done. Every word, phrase, line and sentence is wonderfully crafted... you paint the whole powerful pureblood mindset so well. This is always what I imagined happening actually, it's the same situation with many conflicts. In fact, WW II is in many ways a consequence of WW I.

I could go on and on about all the good things in this fic, but I'll let it be for now.

This is an excellent explanation about why anyone would join the Death Eaters. I loved it from the first paragraph. Normally Death Eaters are portrayed at stupid or gullible, but you didn't. Thank you for sharing this with the community.

You portrayed the thoughts of a zealot quite well. Thanks for sharing!

This story is insightful and a great addition to the fandom.

awesome. love how it puts it in the perspective of the Death Eater, human and real, not unlike revolutionaries everywhere. was a bit perturbed by how the present tense kept interrupting the flow, but my favourite part was right at the end so ya p

you captured the DE's personality perfectly, and it's so realistic.

the tone of it all is brilliant.

This is phenomenal. I find it hard to find good, realistic stories about how death eaters joined the Dark Lord, but this is exceptional. It is logical without hiding the killing a bloodshed. Your story gave me chills. I commend your skill and sit back in awe.

A great story. Very well written.
Kirika Moonshadow chapter 1 . 8/3/2009
Great fic! The tone is wonderful...fanaticism, disdain, resentment. You paint a picture here where the reader really can understand where this Death Eater is coming from. I also enjoyed the use of Moody. The fact that this character is the Eater who took his eye and leg situates him solidly in Rowling's setting. And makes him that little bit more frightening. It sent chills down my spine. _ Keep up the good work!

Yay, finally someone is putting what little we know about the earlier years together and making something interesting out of it! I'm guessing you don't have a particular Death Eater in mind, but is this only a one shot? I'm leaning towards 'yes'...
