    Summary

    Moody reclined in his chair, his prosthetic scratched over the floor. “What year is it, Riddle.”
    It wasn’t phrased like a question, maybe that was why Tom finally answered.
    “September.” Tom clipped out coldly. “1942. You know this.”’
    Harry inhaled so sharply he choked on his spit. He hurriedly turned away, hacking and wheezing as he nearly asphyxiated on his own saliva.
    “Yeah,” Moody grimaced with a slight disgruntled noise hidden in his tone, “that’s a problem.”

    Tom Riddle, 15 years old, in the middle of the London Blitz suddenly finds himself in a future with no allies, resources, information, and everyone he knows treats him with enough restraint to not murder him on the spot. It takes a lot to truly ruin a human being, to rot them so thoroughly even fruit flies avoid the stench. Tom doesn't want this bullshit, Tom only wants to-

    Summary

    Series was formerly "Remus Lupin and the darkness", but evolved way beyond that.

    I should probably make clear somewhere that these are standalones in that they share some sort of continuity, but occasionally veer of into different AUs at different points of the timestream. So Not By Force is definitely not where things are meant to go, it's just an exercise in misery ^^

    I’m going to tell you a story, although it’s a bit long. I’m going to make you listen, because I want you to understand how you made me a monster. I’ll call this story antithesis, and you’re going to learn every single moment where things went wrong. I want you to cry, and beg for me to kill you, and when I’m done with this, you’re going to want to do that to yourself. You’re going to listen, because in the end, you owe me that much. You owe me so much more, but here we are, and this is how it’s going to end. Who knows, maybe this useless battle between you and me and this bloody world, well, maybe we always were fated to kill each other.

    Do you know what it is like to be unmade?
