Review of chapter "Chapter 5" from draconis
Review:
.
Still really enjoying the story.

Looks like the 1945 Ministry people are just as stupid and incompetent as it is was during Harry's pre-graduation experience. What tools.

It's disappointing to see the 2008 "Auror" characters seem to be just as emotional, quick to jump to conclusions, and willing to attack innocent people as ever. I'd have thought they would have learned from their incredibly serious mistakes during the last round of Voldemort v. the world.

It's looking like both the 1945ers and the 2008ers are like Barney Fife's that keep their guns fully loaded and are all too willing to use them before knowing the facts...Muggles and innocents be damned as long as the Wizards feel "safe".
Comments from author:
Hah, yes, the issues with Wizarding society as a whole is something that will certainly be a recurring theme throughout the story. Also, given how deeply ingrained and pervasive as these problems were, I would imagine that even five years after the war there would be some superficial changes, but they would be baby steps in the grand scheme of needed change.

Thank you for reading and reviewing! I'm glad you are enjoying the story.

Review of chapter "Chapter 5" from AllenPitt
Review:
This could get sticky. Ethan giving his version to the Aurors, getting a wand, all that. While Buffy maybe works with Tom, who is no doubt 'persecuted for his beliefs by the evil authorities' or some such. I wonder if he'll figure she's from the future. Inquiries to the Watchers Council will reveal the slayer isn't Buffy. Might be interesting if a witch-watcher became aware of her, though.
Comments from author:
Sorry, I was out of town and trying to read the site on my phone is almost impossible.

Oh, it's definitely going to get sticky, and I don't want to give anything away--but some of these questions will be addressed, to some degree, in the next few chapters.

(Actually, I've been blocking/outlining the next chapter for the last couple days and the outline has hit 1600 words....so, probably gonna have to break it into two chapters, lol)

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Review of chapter "Chapter 4" from (Recent Donor)ConstanceTruggle
Review:
I know I've reviewed this over on FFN, bit I feel the need to reiterate how I loved where Buffy *saw* Tom. Not just his looks or his rumored charisma or his opportunistic posturing, bit *him*. And that he was wrong. And that she saw what he did to his soul, even if she doesn't understand that bit yet. So thank you for sharing and I look forward to more.

CT.

Review of chapter "Chapter 4" from draconis
Review:
.
Excellent start. Very much looking forward to more. So many ways this could go in 1945 and 2003 timelines and your demonstrated ability to craft the scenes and portray the characters should make it a wonderful read.

Loved the, "What have you done to your soul?". Way out of left-field but a tremendous hook. As likely to intrigue Tom as deeply to concern him, and I could easily feel Buffy's shock at that observation.

I could see see this going sideways either way with Buffy being drawn to the 'Dark Side' or Tom being drawn more to the Light...maybe a bit of both? Tom's raw power with his innate darkness tempered a bit by Buffy, and Buffy doing a "Let's get dangerous" thing would make them an incredibly powerful and effective pair: politically, magically, and even more effective against demons, and now in-the-future Glory, and the First (something that might draw in Buffy). Perhaps a glimpse of the possible re-aligned badness foreseen in Buffy's dreams as the present and future are changed?

Anyway, not looking for answers in this comment. Just idle thoughts.

Review of chapter "Chapter 4" from Lolaisawesome
Review:
Holy shit! Excellent cliffhanger!
I am so happy that a great author is showing an interest in this pairing. Keep up the good work.
Comments from author:
Thank you!

When the idea hit me a while back, I just saw sparks flying and promptly decided I needed to write this. Up until now though, the only thing I'd ever written was a 450 word drabble, so that's partly why I am a slow updater.

I hope to get the next chapter completed soon!

Review of chapter "Chapter 4" from Wandmaker
Review:
Love this story and the unique chemistry you've created between the younger Voldemort and Buffy. The idea of them both being able to see into each other's mind is fascinating.

I'm also a fan of stories where good and evil isn't all black and white.

Review of chapter "Chapter 4" from SSanchez
Review:
I like the way you worked out Buffy's power vs Toms. She isn't all powerful, but she can hold her own too. Makes it a bit more realistic, and I can see how he would be intrigued by it, and her. It's also nice that she holds her ground and tells him what she thinks of him entering her mind without permission, especially after the peeping while unconscious earlier! I like getting his thoughts too, and getting to know Tom Riddle. Great chapter, look forward to the next!

Review of chapter "Chapter 4" from isugirl
Review:
Very interesting chapter. I like how tom kept getting side tracked with other thoughts while trying to deal with her. It'll be interesting to see how he reacts to buffy knowing there's something wrong with him and that he isn't always on the side of good. I was so happy to see you updated and I can't wait for the next chapter.
Comments from author:
Thank you very much!

I'm working to keep him in character, while keeping in mind that he's still just eighteen here.

Review of chapter "Chapter 4" from Sinangeled
Review:
Holy crap this chapter was amazing. I am very very excited to read more, and hope another update comes soon!
Comments from author:
Thank you!

I was a little nervous because there is not very much action, and it's mostly one character, so I probably obsessed over it a lot more than necessary.

I've got a chunk of the next chapter started, I just have to check my outline to see if I can shift a scene or two around so that it isn't too short.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from (Past Donor)FireDragon
Review:
So I will admit it I am curious about where you are going to go with this. Also wondering how you are going to approach the whole time paradox thing. There are so many theories; so many ways you could do it. anywho keep up the good work.
