There is a fine line between life and death; I know it well: I wear it as a cloak and I will see it burn.
31 December 1926
(I am Lord Voldemort)
In death we are reborn anew; though the death doesn't have to be ours.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted
Antebellum (adj.): occuring or existing before a war.
August 1945 - October 1949
The world is in flux; history is not yet past and the future is not yet here.
Tom Riddle is patient.
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.
