After his parents' deaths in 1927, Hadrian Peverell is adopted and taught the art of politics. Years later, as war looms on the horizon and his very identity becomes his greatest secret, Hadrian has no choice but to trust someone almost as dangerous as he himself: Tom Riddle. A story of love and loss. A story of power, and of one too great to seek it. (Originally written by windwrites on a03. I have edited some of the chapters and added things, you can think of me as a beta of sort, who might write a second novel.) This is complete.
