and aww, what a nice ending. well, it's more realistic then a "happily ever after" and i certainly prefer tom over voldemort, and it seems like a nice afterlife - since he only liked those three in his whole life he won't miss any other people, i guess. well anyways - nice story, i really enjoyed reading it

That was wonderful. The last chapter made me so sad. Sometimes little things mean more than big displays.

I usually dislike original characters in HP fanfiction with a passion, because I think that JK Rowling has already given us such rich characters in the story that we should use her characters instead. In this case, however, I don't actually mind at all. You've made Emily the kind of person that I like to read about - witty, stubborn, funny, intelligent and who isn't afraid to go over to the bad side sometimes.
I thought that this story was very well-written, with all the non-OC characters in-character and somehow you've managed to inject it with a subtle sense of humour in parts - I don't know if this was intentional or not, but it's very Flaignhan from what I've read of your other stories. I love your version of Tom and I'm glad that you don't make him the kind of person I despise or pity because that's not what he was meant to be in his schoolyears. He was meant to be exactly what you made him: charming, clever, slightly dangerous and the sort of person that I can understand why girls fall head over heels for him.
Thank you so much for writing this story - I've really enjoyed him,

I've always loved the idea of Tom with a really smart OC. I'm thinking about writing a fic like this myself, only it would be quite... different from this.

What an intriguing story! Emily is a marvelous OC, and I really enjoyed the very interesting relationship that arose between her and Tom which continued when he became Lord Voldemort.
It seemed appropriate that Bella would murder her on that fateful Halloween night... and the "Afterwards" was really nifty. It opens an amazing amount of possibilities, doesn't it?
Even though Tom insisted that he didn't love Emily, to me, as a reader, I think that he protested too much. *grin*
Very well done!

He loved her didn't he? I mean, the only way a person who has never loved before can love or some incapable of loving can love. There was something there in a way that it was like love?
I loved this story and would love to see maybe...an alternate reality with Emily and Tom, if its possible.

Very very different from the other Tom Riddle stories I've read and I have to admit its brilliant - I loved every second of it. You have a good style, the characters had a constant personality and it was very very enjoyable.
Easily one of my favorite Tom fanfiction - very easily my favorite. :)

Hey! Voldemort got a happy ending?
Oh well. If he accepts his fate, it's fine enough in itself.
Really beautiful conclusion. I wish I could make you my favorite author five times over...

I chuckled a bit at the last line.

I loved this piece. I enjoyed the oneshot, but this just blew me away. It was so different, and captured views of characters not many have dove into. Each chapter was amazing, up until the end. It reminded me nearly of the Titanic, actually. The ending with the four of them once more, and I couldn't think of a better ending. There wasn't one flaw to it.
I enjoyed the interactions between every character, and Emily was just so amazingly strong. She grew up to be just what I expected her to be, and it just worked so well for the story. One of the best OC's I have ever seen/read of. Honestly, you wrote this chapter by chapter and each one grew closer and closer to the inevitable. More and more serious, and I dreaded each chapter but it was too good to stop reading. Now don't tell anybody, but so far this is the only fanfic to actually get a tear or two to leak out. Gah! That's how great it was!
Overall, I loved it. Something I'll definitely be coming back to read again. :D

This was such a wonderful and interesting ending to such a great story! This one was very different from your other romances with Tom, and I really enjoyed reading it. I look forward to more from you! :D
