Some of the most powerful and long-lasting magic was built up from the smallest, most simple of spells, woven layer upon layer to create something far greater than the sum of its parts. Tom learned this early on, when he tried to learn the secrets of the Room of Requirement and couldn't get beyond the first few layers of its magic.

Over the years, as he learned more varied spells including an increasingly exotic assortment he researched and learned on his own, he became more accomplished at the unravelling of complex magical constructs, until he was nearly there. He could see the magical framework that went into the making of that magnificent room, but he learned that he couldn't reconstruct it on his own. Instead, it had taken the combined magic of all four of the Founders to create it, all of their abilities and specialties weaving together to create one of the finest examples of collaborative magic in all of Hogwarts.

Tom did, however, manage to learn enough of the way it was made that some time later he was able to replicate it -- of course, in a much less permanent and much smaller fashion. Using a bookbag he had bought and nights of careful spell casting, he was able to make what he called a Bag of Requirement, and it was that bag that he gave his lover Blaise for his 20th birthday. He smiled when the first thing Blaise pulled out of it was a birthday card from him that read, "Happy Birthday, Blaise. Love always and all ways, Tom."
