Summary:Fifty years ago. Harry Potter learned that fifty years ago Tom Marvolo Riddle opened the Chamber of Secrets, unleashed the monster within, killed Myrtle, and blamed Hagrid for it all, but there was more to the story, there were different shades of the story, Shades of Blue and Green...
Author's Note: Okay +tear+tear+ this is the finaly part of the epic story of Myrtle Vance and Tom Riddle.
Disclaimer: I own nothing but the plot, which is original!! But still, I don't own Harry Potter...
Epilogue- Love Lift Us Up Where We Belong
Fifty-five years later, Harry Potter, Luna Lovegood, and Neville Longbottom began looking around the Ravenclaw common room for a book of Luna's that she had dropped when she had run to the Room of Requirements.
"Is this it?" Neville asked holding up an old book.
"Nope." Luna said.
"Wow, wow, wow." Harry said.
"What Harry?" Neville asked.
"That looks like Tom Riddle's diary, let me see it." Harry said.
Neville handed him the book.
"It's a diary." Harry said as he turned the diary over to see the name: Myrtle Leanne Vance on the back. "I think it belonged to Myrtle, but why would it have her name on it?" Harry asked.
Luna spoke up. "Harry, there are these types of diaries that came out in the 1940's, the were really expensive, but they allowed owners to communicate with the other diary that was connected to it."
Harry looked at her.
"Anything written in one book, would go to the other." Luna said. "They're really rare in this state, this looks like one of the originals, I'd say back then there were only about four other pairs. And I remember that like three pairs went to foreign countries and two stayed in England. I remember that the wealthy Goyle family –yes Gregory Goyle's family- bought one set, and a muggleborn girl bought the other set for her friend Tom's birthday. Never did figure out who Tom was though." The two boys stared at Luna. "What? I researched them a lot because I've always wanted one." She defensively said.
"Are you telling me that Tom Marvolo Riddle, AKA Lord Voldemort, the most feared wizard of all time, or out time anyway, was best friends with his first victim?" Harry asked.
"I'm not," Luna said, "This is." She pulled open the diary which was clad in entries from Ginny, entries about Harry Potter. But towards the back was one entry, the only entry Tom Marvolo Riddle ever wrote while he was alive.
June 8, 1945
My dearest Myrtle,
I'm writing to you from the Hogwarts Express, my last trip I will ever take. I wish you were here with me. I heard you became a ghost after I killed you, I heard that you believed the lie I told you, but it was a lie. Myrtle Leanne Vance, I must tell you the truth, I killed a person, who turned out to be you, because I was upset that Rubeus Hagrid was going to be taking to Hogsmeade the beautiful girl that I was madly in love with. I apologize to you, and hope that with passing time, your pain will heal. I have to say that I am going to pursue my love of Dark Arts, I can't bear not to, I was born with this, but I will go on your idea, instead of going as Lord Mortlevod like I had been planning to do, I will go as the feared Lord Voldemort, in honor of you.
Lots of Love,
"Wow." Neville and Harry said.
"We should show Myrtle." Luna said as she grabbed the book and ran for Myrtle. Neville and Harry grudgingly followed her.
"MYRTLE!" Luna said excitedly as she ran into the bathroom with the diary in her hand.
"What do you want?" Myrtle sobbed.
"Look." Luna said showing Myrtle the diary entry.
Myrtle stared at the entry, near tears as Harry and Neville walked in.
"I can't believe it, I had always loved him, but feared he never loved me."
A soft image of a young sixteen year old boy faded in to the room and smiled. Luna hugged Neville. "Love lift us up where we belong." She whispered.
Needless to say, no other generation of Hogwarts was cursed with Moaning Mytle.
Author's Note: Cause I always got to have a happy ending. I hope you realize that I just left you with an ambiguous ending, you don't kno what happened. It could be that Myrtle and Tom were together as ghosts ad Myrtle stopped moaning, or Myrtle saw the love of Tom and stopped moaning, or they Tom came and took Myrtle up the afterlife with him, or anything else y'all can think of. I really hope you enjoyed reading this, unlike most of my fics, I have always had fun writing this. But I have to say officially,
I, SilverDrama, had lots of fun writing the first ever Tom Riddle Jr./Myrtle fic.
Sorry...couldn't help myself there...
