I don't think a slow burn is a bad thing, but a slow burn coupled with updates that only happen once a year is going to put me in my grave before there's any progress.

I find myself torn in two: on the one hand I like your pace because it gives every possible future relationship a stronger base... On the other hand: I want something to happen already :D
And I have to admit while reading this I must have cursed Harry a thousand times: I mean he is acting so stupid... He shouldn't have embarked on this mission if he was not emotionally ready for it and now he has fucked up like a hundred times. I can even understand Tom, I'd be pissed too.
But I hope that Harry gets his shit back together and I have a feeling that Ginny's knowledge of Tom will be really helpful.
Thank you and hoping you don't leave us in suspense for too long

OMG that build up and tension was amazing holy smokes that epiphany that slammed harry and when he crumpled down to the chair realizing why he and Ginny can't go back to the way things were... and I actually forgot too about the incident in the CoS book lol. But like hermione planning this out ahead of time is sooo hermione. ALSO LOL at your disclaimer on the "sloooow" burn. But I can see why because lol Harry needs to get it together. But it feels like he's repeating the same thing and making tom wait. The sad part is, tom does wait for Harry (I think? It strikes me that he tries to deny it). Hmm I wonder what Ginny has to say about tom heehee

Perfect chapter. I love the phrase, 'living in the penseive' for living in the past. I also really like the comparison between Tom and Draco as kids. Looking forward to the next update!

Thanks for the chapter

I know you said it's a slow burn, but Harry's long introspections are somewhat frustrating. I hope once he's learned more about Tom from Ginny, the chapters of Harry dithering around in the past doing nothing important will be behind us. I'm looking forward to future chapters.

Annoyed cause present day time is taking up too much Harry/Tom interaction. Great story!
| firedraygon chapter 10 . 1/16
Interesting concept for a time travel fic! I like how we see how Tom is learning these character traits that define him later on. That he wasn't completely charismatic from the start. Looking forward to the next update!

Glad u updated after awhile. Hoping to see more of this. Hehe its like a slow burn but enjoyable to read all the same.

Wonderful chapter. Harry's temper got in his way, reacting to Tom so in character. And He accidentally gave Tom some very important information.
| Gingeredtea chapter 2 . 1/6
I love the way you captured Tom being told he is a wizard. You incorporated Harry into the scene flawlessly. Not only that, but Toms affection (dare I say) to Harry being attached to possessiveness after learning Harry can only be seen by him was perfect.
You capture Harry's relationship as equally well with Hermione and Ron, constructing the dialogue brilliantly.

I am re-reading all your chapters after the update. I'll make sure to write a really nice one at the end - but of course I'm reading them on my phone right now. I'll leave a small one for each chapter though. :)
Your story idea is spectacular, original, and expertisely executed! I love your use of cramped words to express Tom's thoughts. The flow of it really serves well to Toms character and simply sounds like him in my head.
