Vicky Frobisher wanted to do something great. She did not want to fall in love with Harry Potter's grandfather almost sixty years before she is born.

Arachne never expected to catch the eye of Tom Riddle, the mysterious, handsome fifth year of (supposedly) pureblood stock. She also didn't expect for the story of the century to fall into her lap.
The year is 2018. I'm on Quotev absentmindedly browsing through stories when I find it: a romantic fanfic involving young Voldemort. "What the feck?" I ask myself, as I click it out of morbid curiosity, unknowingly discovering the part of the internet that romanticizes a murderer because the actor who played teenage him was conventionally attractive. "This is pretty bad." I say to myself offhandedly, "I could do better." Those were, of course, my famous last words.

Men become accustomed to poison by degrees - Victor Hugo
It is October 1949: Lycus Malfoy is dying, quarantined in his house alone but for his wife, Adelaide, who still hopes there is a miracle cure; Eileen Prince has vanished into a Muggle life, washing the dead and arranging flowers, away from the sneers she endured at school; Cygnus and Orion Black are at war with each other even as they bury their secrets six feet deep.
There is a murderer on the loose, shrouded in paranoia, and the old structures, things of blood and age and time, are starting to crumble.
And a ship arrives from Lübeck bringing Tom Riddle home.

What beauty there was in your confidence. What purity in your certainty. What clarity in your purpose.
All of it, always, contained within every freckle of your face.
When one door shuts - oh, but there is always another possibility, always another future; another hundred, another thousand, and it is maddening to know fragments of them all but never enough, never enough to be more than a sickly, sweaty, sleepless mess.
