    Summary

    Due to being Master of Death and wanting to make a change in the key moments where everything went to shit for his timeline, Harry goes back in time. He just didn't expect to flop down rag-doll style onto a young Professor Dumbledor's desk.
    Or make Grindelwald nearly piss himself in fear.
    Or gain a stalker from a baby-faced, pre-Voldemort Tom Riddle.
    What's Harry to do?
    ~
    Tom Marvolo Riddle is a cold, heartless dark wizard. A Dark Lord in the making, with the political power of several dark Pure-Blood families at his beck and call, and a plethora of pawns to use then toss aside. The pain and suffering of others at his hand are one of only a few ways he can feel elation.
    Not joy. Never. True positive emotions elude him at every turn. Born of a dark love potion, he was never meant to love. It's a fable. A weakness. Tom is better.
    But what is this, than?
    This ache in his chest?
    He feels more whole than ever, even before his Horcruxes.

    Summary

    After decades of war, the world is on the brink of destruction, with no hope for survival. The only way to go on is to travel back in time and change everything that's gone wrong, starting with Tom Riddle. That's how Harry Potter found himself in 1941, a time he had hoped never to find himself in again. Why 1941? Death has a pretty messed up sense of humour, that's why.

    Summary

    Now a free lark, Harry has all the time to understand the strange workings of his magic and figure out his place in the world. And his place in Tom’s world. With a Dark Lord hot on your heels, it’s not easy to slip by in life: Harry learnt that the hard way. Tom’s persistent and random appearances in Harry’s life only makes it easier to forget why Harry was trying so goddamn hard to keep a distance in the first place.

    A Tom-centric story, featuring Tom chasing after Harry, as promised.

    (Reading Part 1: The Sun would be recommended but even without reading that, you should be able to understand this story.)

    Summary

    Just like making sugar cookies for a bake sale and accidently using soy sauce instead of vanilla. It only takes one wrong ingredient/measurement/preptime can absolutely ruin the outcome of a whole batch, even if they come fresh out of the oven looking completely as expected. They match the other cookies that were baked, so there’s no reason to think they’re any different. That is, until someone bites into one. And everything goes wrong.
    But accidents happen, right?
    Well, not to Lord Voldemort, they don’t.
    So, of course, when one did happen, and his first horcrux was just like those sugar cookies: unnoticed. He used too much of the wrong part of his soul- a part that he split in the name of a kill that wasn’t rightfully his. What remained was something very similar to a horcrux, only so much stronger.
