Challenge #2

Summary: What if Voldemort was smarter? More cunning? Didn't come up with plots that a baby could foil?


Must be Voldemort's POV
Voldemort must follow all relevant rules at http://www.eviloverlord.com/lists/overlord.html

Fairly open-ended, so you can go where you want with it, but be sure to read the linked list before starting the writing. I think it'd make for a very interesting fic.

Ummm....so you're just suggesting a fic where Voldemort just takes over, without any diabolical speeches and maniacal laughs?

Ok, wheres the plot? Voldemort kills everyone, ok, w00tage, mostly, thats fine, but without any other characters, theres no fic, unless you're going for an angst ridden fic about how Voldemorts taking over, Oh no, everyones dead, type thing.

But then, see, that's not Voldemort POV anymore... I think he's trying to say something along the lines of a Tom Riddle fic, after he's made a few Horcruxes and looks evil and less human than ever. So... Voldemort centric fic after he's gained some feasible power, (probably after the time period described in Taure's newest oneshot), showing him going whoopass on some hapless muggles. Meh.

No, I'm suggesting a fic where Voldemort isn't a complete fucktard. And offers a bit of insight into his personality. A fic that attempts to show Voldemort as more than the token Dark Lord character.

Bleh, IMO, if he wasn't a complete fucktard, the story would end the same night it started. Instead of AK-ing Harry, he would have tossed baby!Harry out the window, or stabbed him or something.

Or at the very least, after the GoF takes HP to the graveyard, Voldemort would have straight up killed Harry, not released him to 'fight like a man' :/

You know that really pissed me off because last time I checked he was not a Gyffindor nor did he have any sense of honor, He was a Slytherin to the core and he goes and does sometihng like that. Gah.

I don't blame him for the whole "Fight me like a man" thing. He was backed up by like two dozen DE's and is a powerful Wizard. Sure the fact Harry has escaped him numerous times before and beaten him once would make him careful but this is really one of those situations were he couldn't lose. Did Harry even know any spells that could have killed Voldemort? Reducto maybe but I somehow doubt it.

Voldemort needed to show his powers to his followers who probably still had doubts about him after being beaten by a 1 year old.

This honestly isn't much of a challenge.
