When he was a little boy, Tom Riddle wanted a family. More than anything, he wanted to be one of those children who went away with a nice family and stayed with them, growing up to be a normal child in a normal family with a normal life.

When he was a little older, he wanted the other children to leave him alone and stop picking on him, wanted them to stop hurting him and wanted to make them suffer for the pains and humiliations they caused him. It was around this time that he started to be able to do things when he was angry. Sometimes frightening and harmful things. But they deserved it because they had frightened and harmed him first.

When he was eleven, a strange man came to see him and explained why he was able to do things when he was angry. He wasn't a freak or possessed -- he was a wizard. A powerful one. When he was eleven, Tom Riddle wanted to be the most powerful wizard in all the land -- and the strange man sent him to a school where he could learn to do just that. It wasn't a normal school, he wasn't a normal boy, and he certainly wouldn't have a normal life.

But deep down inside, even with all his power and all his skill, there was still something he wanted. He never said it aloud and never told anyone -- except his diary and the boy who read it. And when that boy came to the past to be with him, he realized that love wasn't the weakness he had convinced himself it was and he didn't have to hide the fact that he wanted to be whole. Because with Blaise, he was.
