Let me say, first and foremost, that I am in love with your icon. <3
Ah, I think you've got Tom quite in character. Lust, ambition, etc etc...indeed. Well done. And I love to hear stories concerning Tom killing his father. I don't know, they intrigue me.
But I don't understand the 'still motionless flames'...has he frozen them? How have they become frozen?
Oh yeah, stupid me. I forgot about that part (and I didn't re-read this after posting). He freezes time and they have sex in the common room, on a table, with students all around, but they're frozen in time. When this happens, he hasn't bothered unfreezing time yet.
It's kinda silly, but I like the image, and I like the idea that even while still in Hogwarts, he'd be powerful enough to do something like that. Obviously that'd be a majorly difficult bit of magic. (Or maybe that Merlin miniseries with Sam Neill has just brainwashed me to believe so.)
I like the icon, too, but I didn't make it. I got it from indilime
, who makes *really* nice Tom icons whenever she gets the bug to do so. Another one of hers actually inspired every Tom story I've ever had (remind me to show you sometime, as I don't know where the link would be anymore).
Ack, I was wrong. The icon that inspired most of my Tom obsession was not made by indilime, but saibakato
. Here it is:
That icon and the rest from that entry can be found right here
I love that Merlin mniseries...and your story idea sounds really intriguing, I wish you'd gone with it. Time warpings are so...I don't know...artistic..
Oh, please link me to the iconage; if there are more like this, well, I'm certainly interested in seeing them all. :)
Sadly, nice Tom icons are few and far between. I think I only have that green one and this one. :\ This one came from a set of icons just based on chapter names in CoS. Saibakato had one or two more icons of him I think, but they weren't as good as the green one (which *really* makes me think of absinthe, and decadence, and all forms of sin... *makes self stop thinking*).
If someone could point me to some nice quality images of Tom, I might be able to whip up a few icons m'self. *ponders the idea*

That would be right here,
under Visuals. By the way, this site is a veritable goldmine. The site creator needs an award or something.
Heh I've actually been there. Used to have it bookmarked on my old computer. Thanks for the link.
Erg, I gotta stop with these multiple replies, but I forgot...
The Tom story isn't really abandoned, just on hold til I can figure out how to write it. It's kind of the typical "Tom/Original character who's pale with icy blue eyes" thing I guess, but I don't care, I actually take the concept really, really seriously. The inspiration came from something I used to think about when I was younger: Hitler had a wife. That always amazed me. So I thought, what kind of a girl would stand beside someone like that? What would the relationship be like? And what if the girl had basically the same amount of bloodlust as, in this case, Tom. Except instead of killing, maybe it was something else. Self-inflicted pain of some sort, even if it was just emotional.
I really will finish it someday, I think. But who knows when that day will be. :p
Don't worry about the multiple entries. I've been doing them a lot lately, too.
If you ever need a beta, I'm here to help. (Please...please...anything to keep this community from dying...I know you do really excellent graphics, you can always offer those up, too!)
