    The Human Factor

    The Human Factor by Mari-grem (This link is broken as Mari-grem’s livejournal account has been deleted.  If anyone manages to find this fic elsewhere, please email me and send me the link.)

    Summary: “We all bleed red, even you.” How close did the boy Tom Riddle get to friendship? Oneshot, 1,729 Words.

    Why You Should Care: An intriguing little fic that leads with Dorcas Meadowes but is really about Tom Riddle. This fic uses tense and flashback to its advantage, and some of the word play here is excellent. It toys with the idea that, while Tom Riddle was never a good person, he was at least — at some point — a person, at least a little. Unique.

    Why You Might Not Care: Some of the punctuation within this story is… a little odd. The dashes have all been made hyphens, and you’ll find yourself having to read some lines several times over before you stop tripping over them. There are commas where there should occasionally be periods, and this author doesn’t quite grasp the fundamentals of punctuating and using capitol letter within and around dialogue, but it does the job and by and large the quality of the words written far outweigh any lack of skill punctuation-wise.
