The year is 2018. I'm on Quotev absentmindedly browsing through stories when I find it: a romantic fanfic involving young Voldemort. "What the feck?" I ask myself, as I click it out of morbid curiosity, unknowingly discovering the part of the internet that romanticizes a murderer because the actor who played teenage him was conventionally attractive. "This is pretty bad." I say to myself offhandedly, "I could do better." Those were, of course, my famous last words.
Prettyboy McSnakeheir has a crush on a girl and doesn't know how to deal with it.
Tom Riddle attempts to navigate the prejudiced wizarding world alongside sharp-minded girls, influential boys, and he does not at all have a crush, crushes are stupid and he is a perfectly, reasonable, level-headed boy of eleven, he does not have a crush. | An attempt at a realistic, critical view of both the Harry Potter world, and Tom Riddle having a plausible love interest.

Wings arc from your body as you begin to soar, rising and curving towards the sun as it filters down towards you through the ink-blue sky.
Water fills your lungs in a steady drip, drip, drip, and you are drowning instead.

History is written by the victors, to their specifications. Not all of history fits within them.
These are those parts which do not.
