Summary:Helga Hufflepuff, in her youth, seeks out the cave where Loki lies bound to learn from his longsuffering wife Sigyn.

Mythic, with the right shade of dreamlike. Some parts were excellent, others seemed a bit superfluous.

Summary: Voldemort makes an electrifying return, and Harry talks the illustrative illusion of a young Tom Riddle into reality - and into supplanting his older self. Also involves a loyal snake, an unwontedly animate frog, and Quidditch.

An intriguing story, in which the turn of the world can depend on the turn of a word. Very character-driven. We are left with a beginning, which means it's just as well that this is the first in a series. I love the potential for this, because I love redemption stories, and this is definitely Tom Riddle's redemption.
