Excellent idea! She needed to tell him she loved him.

I love the lack of fluff :-) The practicality of Salazar and Tom was such fun!

Is there a sequel to this? I kinda want to see a future where Toms less likely to become half snake

Humorous and Sensible. That's what I love about your stories. Ooh, and I can't forget the excellent sarcasm.

This was fantastic. I loved the way you demonstrated how Tom had opportunities to make better choices, but he is filled with so much empty disinterst, if not loathing, that he is simply unintersted in becoming a good man. Perhaps the world will be better with this Tom, who realizes that he risks madness and a parasitic existence on this path he has chosen. But whatever occurs, Tom will never be able to claim he didn't know better and had no opportunities to make something good of himself. This free will thing is tough, isn't it?

I was expecting Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw, but shadow of death works too

Heh, Gryffindor made a pun with his feet.

This Tom is hilarious.

I like that Tom doesn't turn around and become a good guy. I also like the play on words with "morality" and "mortality."
"He had never been in [the Leaky Cauldron] for longer than it took to get from Muggle London to the Leaky Cauldron but it usually..." I think you mean "from muggle London to Diagon Alley."
There are a few typos since the beginning. For one: in this chapter, "you're parents."

Okay, the disclaimer makes it clear the answer to my question is "yes."
"'Mr. Gaunt, please!' Ogden said, shocked." I didn't see the narrator mention that "the man's" name was Ogden.
I like the reasonable, moderate Salazar Slytherin.

You slipped into using present-tense around the point where Tom decides to visit Hagrid.
This is an interesting idea. Is this an Ebenezer Scrooge deal?

Becouse Tom's motives are much more complex than simple minded greed
Great well thought out story
