A difficult good-bye turns into a confessional for a boy that has never before spoken of his past to anyone. A response to the Gen Ficathon.
(#) HallowsNotHorcruxes 2010-09-24 05:50:47 PMHmmm. Not sure what I think of this story. It's definetly AU, that's for sure. I do like the name you gave the basilisk. It's very unique, ancient, much like the basilisk herself. I don't know if I pity or sympathize with Tom at all, but I do understand his POV. Very intriguing.
Author's responseIt wasn't actually meant to be AU when it was written as it's an older piece originally put out before book six, but these days, I suppose it is. Thanks for the rest, it does mean a lot, even after all this time.
