Full Summary: When the one and only ex-Lord Voldemort decides to play matchmaker, eight of our favorite characters: Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Ginny Weasley, Luna Lovegood, Draco Malfoy, Blaise Zabini, and Pansy Parkinson end up on a deserted island. Add a hot new Muggle game show, two overenthusiastic hosts, and what will happen? The main couple is Draco/Hermione, but there will be other pairings. They are just a surprise!
A.N-I PROMISE you, this fic is not as creepy as it sounds. It will get more exciting, but the prologue is kind of boring. It will NOT be OOC. Just Voldemort is. (But some of the old Voldy will stay. This fic just tries to show his good side.)
To all of you Draco and Hermione Read FanFiction readers: I decided to post this early. Don't worry, though! DHRFF is my first priority!
Disclaimer- I don't own Harry Potter.
Lord Voldemort was bored. Or, as he now like to be called, Tom Riddle was bored. This boredom did not come as a surprise, however, it was rather expected, seeing as he was the one and only ex-Lord Voldemort.
Thinking back upon it, he wondered why he made the decision he did. Perhaps it was just he being caught in the moment again. Because during the Final War, when he and Harry Potter were circling each other, wands raised, Harry had offered him the chance to repent. And to general astonishment, he had accepted the offer.
Four years later, Tom Riddle was your everyday ex- mass murderer, lounging around on his couch for the fourteen-millionth time. He didn't have much of a choice on where to go, however, because he hadn't gotten off completely clean- he was still under house arrest.
So, as previously mentioned, he was bored. Twirling his wand between his ever-remaining long and pale fingers, Tom contemplated what to do with his day. He decided to start off with scanning the Daily Prophet. Everyday, there seemed to be at least on article on at least 1/3 of the Golden Trio. Today, it was the recap on the scandalous breakup of Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. It had been exactly 5 months since the split, and the public was beginning to realize that this might be the end of the heroic couple.
Ah… here was a new topic. It was an article about Draco Malfoy, ex-Death Eater, who heroically became one of the light a few months before the War took place. Apparently, he had inherited his father's company, Malfoy Industries, and had hired the Golden Girl Hermione Granger as their company lawyer. According to Rita Skeeter, this could only lead to romance, as the goody-goodies girls always hooked up with the bad boys in the end.
Most people didn't know it, but Tom was very nosy. He loved to get into other people's business and play with their lives. And Rita's little comment near the end of the article gave him a little idea.
Perhaps she was right… Tom knew quite a bit about the Malfoy boy, and enough about Granger to know that they were compatible. And maybe a little more than just that… Maybe they could make a good couple.
When the War had ended with Tom turning to the light, he and Harry had become… acquaintances. They would have a conversation here and there, and Harry would tell him about himself and his friends. From what Tom had most recently heard:
Harry was a successful Auror and Ministry official, working to eradicate the Death Eaters in hiding.
Ron Weasley worked alongside his friend, but was looking into Quidditch. He was in an on-and-off relationship with Hermione Granger, which had been off for five months.
Hermione Granger was a highly esteemed lawyer, who was apparently now working for Draco Malfoy. She had continued with SPEW and had numerous followers.
Ginny Weasley was a famous Quidditch player, and was in an on-and-off relationship with Harry.
Luna Lovegood was an Unspeakable in the Department of Mysteries and had grown closer to Ginny throughout the years.
Draco Malfoy was still an arrogant bastard, but a rich arrogant bastard, and Harry was forced to work with his company often.
Blaise Zabini was Malfoy's little accomplice, working as his right hand man.
Pansy Parkinson was an annoying twit who kept trying to hook up with Malfoy, to Harry's confusion and disgust.
So, it was upon reviewing all of this that Tom Marvolo Riddle got an idea. Not just any idea- an idea that would change the lives of eight previously mentioned people.
He was going to play matchmaker.
Now he just needed a way to go about this. He couldn't use magic anymore- it was banned, of course. Maybe Muggle television would bring him inspiration.
He flipped it on and watched some episodes of a stupid Muggle reality show when a commercial came on.
It featured a man who was vaguely familiar to Tom. He had dirty- blonde hair and wide, winning smile. Then Tom remembered- he was the lawyer who had helped argue his cast in court. Jeff Yates or something like that… then the man began to speak.
"Are you bored in home? Alone, wishing that you could do something with your life? Then do I have the opportunity for you!" he pointed at the screen, then it flashed to a desert island. "From the producers of Trading Moms and Fifty Blind Dates brings you Survive That!"
On the screen appeared a pile of cash. "An amazing prize of one million dollars to the winner who can survive it all!"
Then Jeff appeared again. "But we can't do it without contestants- and we need eight lucky people to appear on the first season as soon as possible."
An number appeared on the screen and began to flash. "Call this number NOW to enter your contestants today!"
Then another commercial advertising tortilla chips came on. But Tom wasn't paying attention to that- he was too busy snatching his landline phone and furiously dialing.
"Hello? Jeff?" he said slowly. "It's Tom Riddle- remember me? Yeah… listen. I think I know the perfect eight people for your show."
A/N- Please don't flame this. I PROMISE it won't be OOC. I know this chapter was, but the other characters will be in character.
The pretty button is calling you. :)
