When you think about it, Tom/Voldemort was exactly like Harry from the beginning. They simply walked different paths through life. Tom grew up alone, mistrusting and manipulating everyone around him. Particularly those with genuine affection for him.
Harry on the OTHER hand grew with family. Family who despised him certainly, but kept him regardless. Found friends and struggled along side his loved ones to achieve a brighter future for everyone. He was a truly selfless person.

The parallel between these two ingenious is what kept this story immortalized for me. This picture is an excellent example.

I like Voldemort as dark as he is and, of course, I would never use his childhood as an excuse (:

I've just imagined the AU in which there's somebody (maybe Merope survived or some wizard or witch adopted Tom when he was a baby) who raised Tom, and when he was very little, that person didn't tell him about such holiday named New Year, and instead of it they told that all people celebrate Tom's birthday, and all this beautiful illumination, music and happiness are for him.

Shouldn't that be "the most incompetent dark wizard of all time"? ;)

Nice drawing. It would make me feel sorry for Tommy if he weren't such a flat character in the actual books.

I don't really agree with the incompetent part, but I completely agree when you say he's a flat character in the books. Ro could have portrayed him better, give him more depth, more of a reason, valid or not, to be the way he is.

Once Voldie realized there was a question about his wand not working on Harry, he should have conjured up an anvil, or maybe a grand piano, in the air above Harry's head, and let it go. He could have done it while Harry was monologing like a James Bond villain. There was plenty of time. Ker-SPLAT!
