One Last Time  
Title: One Last Time
Rating: PG
Challenge: If I Could Be Anywhere
Characters: Tom Riddle

Before embarking upon my greater achievements, I shall return to the orphanage, once. I desire to prove upon those Muggles what I've become, and I would watch their screams of fear and terror turn to a glorious exultation of agony as they shatter beneath my wand. But I am not yet powerful enough to defy the Ministry openly, so when I return to the orphanage this last time, I will merely dispense my pitiful assortment of Muggle belongings among those nonentities who remain.

The belongings will, of course, be spelled as Portkeys to Albania. There are no Aurors in Albania.

Thanks, I'm glad you liked it! It's fun to think about Tom in the years between his smarmy schoolboy and ranting maniac personas.

I haven't been on LJ for a long time, so it's great to see that at least one of the communities I liked is still around. Glad you kept this one going.

I remember a few years ago when there were so many drabble communities constantly going it was hard to keep up & then it seemed like the all fizzled away around the same time.

I try to make sure that this one and the other two or three (I can't even remember) that I run are still going, but hardly anyone posts anymore!
