Disclaimer: This story is based on characters and situations created and owned by J. K. Rowling, various publishers including but not limited to Bloomsbury Books, Scholastic Books and Raincoast Books, and Warner Bros., Inc.

Notes: We start very early in Harry’s life, so he shall not be the brainwashed pawn of the Light who names his children after some of his worst abusers. Also: A lot of paraphrasing happens in places, because I am not about to recount long book passages verbatim; This is rather slow to start, I think, and there’s very little dialogue for the earlier years; Fair warning: I bash a heck of lot of people, but not necessarily in a malicious way; This is somewhat inspired by having read one too many stories where Harry goes back to the 40’s to learn about Riddle’s weaknesses, or with amnesia and falls for him, or . . . well, you get the picture.

Comments:

“I have to say that this is a very well written piece of somewhat original fanfiction. The time travel plot has been done practically to death (not that I don't enjoy it anyway), but you have managed to write a fresh approach to the whole relationship. I like the way you have characterised Joshua and Tom so that they compliment each other, yet have not evolved in a way that belies their beginnings. I also like it that you made Dumbledore believably immoral instead of just creating an evil!Dumbledore with no justification.” — Dragonanzar

“Riveting story, a well told tale. I'm actually even more intrigued by the lack of detail in some areas, only to zoom in and have rich detail in others. The time skips and the lack of any other relations shown except for some of that which is between Harry and Tom puts a deep frame around the two of them and ensures the reader has an emotional attachment to them and is invested in their fates.” — mabidiso
