    Take Up Serpents

    Take Up Serpents by Rusalka

    Summary: “There were more Parselmouths in the United States of America than anywhere else in the world.” Tom Riddle, after Hogwarts but before he resurfaces as Lord Voldemort. Oneshot, 7,091 Words.

    Why You Should Care: I’ve rec’d this fic mostly because it’s an interesting transitional character piece on Tom Riddle, which are difficult to find and even harder to get right. This one comes very close – something after the Tom we see in CoS, but definitely not yet the Dark Lord. Not many people chose to write this character; especially prior to HBP. He was a little too flat and a little two dimensional at times, as is the super villain’s curse, but now we’re getting a few glimpses of his motivation and his past.

    Why You Might Not Care: It’s Voldemort – or almost Voldemort. How much do you love to read about him, I mean really? Tom’s dialogue and character is excellent, but a couple of the other characters fall a bit flat.
