*steps out of the shadows* [Sep. 15th, 2004|09:16 am]
Mad blood purists gotta stick together, yeah?

Been a long time since I posted here. Or did I ever? *ponders*

Anyway, I've been sitting on this little story snippet for a while. It's part of a longer story that might be something grand someday, but for now it's just a cauldron of unconnected ideas.

I usually try not to write anything this dirty, but then, with Tom... That's kind of the underlying attraction to him, isn't it? So this had to be written sometime.

(Slight backstory: Tom's just gone a bit too far for pleasure in the common room, and seeing as how he had a bit of fondness for the girl he messed up, he's still thinking about what he did. *Re-Edit* He'd frozen time previous to this, and it's still frozen as this happens.)

Tom slowly cleaned up the mess, without magic, and became lost in his thoughts.

If he were capable of feeling remorse, he would have felt it for hurting her. But Tom didn't allow emotions to govern his actions anymore. He could not allow anything to stray him from his course. He, Tom Marvolo Riddle, was the heir of Salazar Slytherin. He alone could purge the Wizarding world of all impurity. And it was more than that. More than fulfilling this mission that fate had hand-selected him for.

It was the power, he thought, a smile slipping between his lips. His scourge would prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that he truly was the most powerful wizard in the world. People would be terrified of him. They would fear him to the point of becoming completely irrational. He would instill chaos. He would cause all those who had made him suffer to suffer tenfold in return.

Tom felt himself become aroused as he contemplated this wonderful ideal future. Students still sat all around the room, "watching" him through glassy eyes. It was haunting and beautiful, and it made Tom need to touch himself even more.

He sat down on the sofa nearest the fire and allowed his mind to wander over the magnificent atrocities he would commit someday soon, his hand finding it's way to his arousal, freeing it.

He imagined screaming. Pleading. The sounds of complete, uninhibited terror inflicted upon the powerless.

He imagined his father, and the sweet, all-encompassing copper taste of triumph he would feel when he finally delivered retribution on the man who was the cause of all Tom's sorrow. He envisioned himself, bathed in green light, and his greatest shame - the abomination that linked him to the Muggle world - his father, finally eradicated for all time. He would drink his blood if he weren't already ill with the knowledge that it flowed in his own veins. His vile Muggle father would pay the greatest price. And it would be beautiful.

Tom quickened pace on himself, feeling the irrepressible power of the Killing Curse flowing through his body, though his wand was not near and he had not spoken the words, and came quickly and violently.

As he lay back to catch his breath, he stared into the still motionless flames. It'll be beautiful, he thought, as he cleaned himself and stood back from the sofa to finish picking up.

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!)
