What if, shortly after being disembodied at Godric's Hollow, Voldemort noticed his link to Harry? A dark AU.

I don't update this story very often, so you will probably want to read the previous chapters for context. This chapter is 2,450 words.

some notes on one character point )

And now to bed.

What if, shortly after being disembodied at Godric's Hollow, Voldemort noticed his link to Harry? A dark AU.

I posted chapter 5 in January 2008, so if you have any interest in reading chapter 6 (which is completely unbeta'ed, by the way; I just very badly wanted to finish something and my remix is giving me fits at the moment) you will probably want to read the previous chapters for context. They aren't very long -- each one averages about 2,000 words, for 10,000 words total so far.

Anyway. Story. (Fair warning: this chapter is where I start killing people. Also, Harry is currently all kinds of fucked in the head, for obvious reasons.)

Strange Likenesses, chapter 6 )

Right. Back to remixing now.

I gacked this from [livejournal.com profile] ladylisse (and then tweaked it a fair bit). The idea is to post the first lines from ten of your recent or in-progress stories. I decided (since I won't have anything ready to post in the near future), that I might throw up some slightly longer excerpts. Fanfiction only.

This is an AU in which, shortly after being disembodied at Godric's Hollow, Voldemort noticed his link to Harry. And then things went wrong.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] lasultrix for beta-reading this chapter. Any remaining canon goofs, grammar mistakes, continuity errors, implausible characterizations, bad dialogue, boring passages, and Americanisms are my fault, not hers.

Strange Likenesses, Chapter 5 )

I do, in fact, have a plot of sorts (which I finally figured out last week -- the lack of a plot or a point, other than making both Harry and Tom annoyed/miserable/furious, was one reason I kept delaying work on this chapter), and things are going to continue going wrong for at least another several months of in-story time. I don't think they're ever going to get all the way better. But whether it ends in tragedy, or in a sort of gray area... well, that I have not yet decided. *evil smile*

What if the newly-disembodied Voldemort had noticed his link to Harry? A dark AU.

Strange Likenesses, Chapter 4 )

More to follow, once I figure out where on earth this story thinks it's going. See, it's all very well to have a fascinating situation, but then you have to do something with it, or all the tension drains away. Unfortunately, right now I can't figure out how to get from here to any satisfactory resolution.

(By 'satisfactory' I don't necessarily mean 'happy.' I just mean something that grows organically from the set-up and doesn't feel like either a deus ex machina or a complete cop-out that doesn't actually resolve anything.)

*beats head against table*

In other news, I have about 150 words written for the final request prompt, and will probably have that done tomorrow or Monday.
