| wordhammer chapter 3 . 11/1/2013
Even with the recap eating the first portion of the chapter, it was enthralling. I knew the Killing curse wouldn't do her in, but I was concerned for Camelia's fate as she pursued the last refuges of her immortality. It made me think of Harry doing the same thing to Tom in the last books.
Still in question- why is Camelia telling her story to Harry? It seems like she's trying to provide a character witness early on, so is Harry interrogating her for breach of vampire restrictions? I could see it as Harry asking her to discuss the nature of killing, in order to deal with recurring nightmares from the war, but he never became a killer, even though he killed Tom.
Awaiting further development...

Wow! Frankly is all I can say about this story. Kepp up the great work.

Wow. I don't entirely understand some of the stuff you speak about but the reveal at the end of this chapter was so good and I love the way it's written from the point of view of an unknown character. I never knew very much about vampires apart from the stuff in Twilight so this was a very interesting read for me

An interesting idea, in the books the featured Vampire Sanguini is a bit of a non entity, somehow not very threatening seeming in the way he appeared at Horace Slughorn's party. However, this vampire Camelia is far more interesting, intelligent seeming and deadly, a far more worthy adversary for Tom and indeed Harry and his fellow Aurors.

Another good chapter

Nicely different from the HP fics I usually read. Love your look into Riddle's past.

Great new chapter and one step closer to a vampire on the force!
I like how you had another mother save her child from Tom. Interesting juxtaposition that a vampire took better care of her ward (even though she fed upon him) than Petunia ever did Harry.

I was going to skip this, as it seemed odd at first. But finally now with the 3rd chapter posted, my curiosity prompted me to take a slightly deeper look and I was pulled in all the way...
What a fascinating little bit. Now I'm deeply curious as to where you will go with the next chapter. How would these muggles(? squibs?) feel about having a vampire in the family. But still a killer of a sort. Hmmm.
thanks for sharing.

Wow. I very much enjoy this. It is very well written and concise. I love the historical aspect. I was wondering though, is Camelia an OC or based on a member of the Tepes family? I did some research on Vlad the Impaler in high school for a project and don't remember reading that name. I'm just curious. Thank you and I look forward to reading more.

What a fascinating chapter. Apart from answering many of the questions I had, you also interested me in vampires for the first time since a friend almost arm-wrestled me to read the Twilight series (which I did with little enthusiasm and definitely no desire to continue the experience with fanfiction).
Is your take on vampires your own or did you do much research and chose the information that most pleased you. Whatever, it was truly interesting. Camelia saving the children was a surprise; perhaps drinking the blood of a man of God and one who was also truly good did cause the aberration. She surprised herself I think.
And Tom was home for the holidays and his orphanage was badly damaged. Your depiction of him at the age showed he was really evil; he didn't grow into his adult persona: it seems that the Slytherin gene was strong and Tom Marvolo Riddle truly was born evil.
Loved this and cannot wait for more.

Camille is very interesting indeed. Enjoyed their meeting in the Blitz. I hope Italy was enjoyable but welcome back.

Really great chapter that tied the story together. So interesting to see more of Camelia as a vampire, and learn more about her. But especially nice to see Tom Riddle even as a young teenage boy cold, indifferent, completely unafraid, and yet still cunning, inquisitive, and already contemplating immortality. He may have been charming when he needed to be, but he shows a little of his true nature and just how cold he was when he wouldn't even consider helping the children from his own orphanage and more interested in the vampire killing a priest. Really good job.

Why didn't I ever bother to read this before?! I want MORE.
How can there be a 'sixty years later' when Camelia is already killed?
BTW, I read the chapter again right away when I finished it, and I gotta love the little indications of her being a vampire. 'His hand was full of blood', things like that. And what a fitting title, both of the story and the chapter.
When will the next post be?

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
Finally, some one who makes Tom Riddle into a sly, cunning and very charming character rather than a two year old. Hello, people? He killed an elderly woman and had the blame pinned to her house elf. He really does do his research doesn't he? That type of psychopathy is plain scary. It's like having a stalker. Creepy. On the other hand, you cabn tell that he has been instititionalised from birth as he really has no consciounce in order to these things. When licked th blood and the references to death - well, you can certainly tell that he is obsessed with death.
The way you weave in so many parts of England into your story when other FF users - ahem, citizens of the USA - does makes the story have texture.I want to congratulate you on that first as I am a person from the county of Yorkshire, verying into Northumberland. The constant lack of british culture - and over use of mainstream western culture e.g. Justin Bieber - in so many stories frustrates me to no end. You have truly inspired me.
Final result Brilliant!
