Wonderful! The power of human touch and care...(well, even forced by necessity, but still) Brilliant! Thank you.
I took a sociology class a few year ago, which is what gave me this idea. There were cases where children and infants were raised with little to no human touch or contact. As adults many of them had severe mental problems because of this stunted development. I know J.K. Rowling wrote Tom suffering from something akin to sociopathy. Whether human touch and how he was raised is connected to that is mere conjecture, but I like to think most people are redeemable as children.
Thank you for the lovely review. It makes me so happy! X3Reviewer: browneyes2yu Signed [Report This]

A very unique tale. A shame that Hermione now has to deal with multiple timelines worth of memories. Do those other timelines still exist separate of Hermione, or did those timelines disappear whenever she traveled back in time? If it is the latter, then I guess Hermione is the only one who could possibly tell the world the history of those timeline, which I guess makes her the guardian of those timeline knowledge.
PS: What was the gift that Hermione gave Tom? I understand that it was a book, but what was the content of the book?
Thank you. Yes, it's kind of difficult to write about Time hand have it be at all plausible. As to whether they still exist, I don't know. I think I'll leave that up to reader opinion. Oh, and the book she gave him, though I was maybe a bit too vague about it, was a book on Muggle inventions. =)
Thanks again for the review!Reviewer: Rageful Jewel Signed [Report This]

That was absolutely beautiful, brilliant, amazing. I had a tear or two in my eye (okay, maybe three) at the end of it, it was so powerfully written. Thank you for sharing this with us!
Awww. I'm so glad this touched you. You have no idea how filled with joy I am at the thought of this!Reviewer: indigo_rose Signed [Report This]

This was a very good read. I like how you had her go back at different times in his life and have her influence his path in life slowly. I also like how you showed her coming back after each trip and how it affected her both in body and mind as well as how the world around her was changing due to her actions. Very well done.
This is my first story with a Time-Turner, which was an interesting experiment, to say the least. It was also the only one I've ever really written with Tom as a focal character. I'm glad it's had such a positive reception. Thank you so much!Reviewer: angel0fmusicvr Signed [Report This]
