Title: The Imposter Complex Author: Notus Oren Rating: T Genre: Adventure/Supernatural Status: In-Progress Library Category: Dark Arts Pairings: None so far? Maybe Tom/Fleur? Summary: Tom Riddle escapes at the end of Chamber of Secrets, and is quite surprised to find that nothing about the future is as he ever thought it would be. Soon, Tom finds himself on a globe-spanning quest to follow the path his forebear blazed and perhaps, at the end, to put a stop to him once and for all.

If this has been submitted for review, I apologize in advance for doing so again. This story is entertaining with an engaging plot. Essentially, diary Tom Riddle escapes, having gone insane to the point where he's sane again, and is horrified by the actions of Lord Voldemort. He then goes on an adventure retracing his steps around the globe. The world-building is there and the author seems to be on top of his game when it comes to research of the places the character visits (if the author notes are any indication). One of the interesting aspects of the story is the world-building; China, in particular, stands out as a prominent example in my mind. The magic is also entertaining with body augmentation and magical artifacts being very unique. It's a pretty funny story as well, which is the result of the protagonist's perspective. The main character, Tom (basically an OC) is a fairly immoral protagonist who is ruthless but seems to truly care about his friends. The perspective of Tom is honestly one of the most enjoyable parts about the fic as the arrogance adds a lot. The writing is there, though there are noticeable minor issues here and there. 4.5/5 for me, rounded to a 5. The uniqueness of the story is what gives it such a high rating for me. I suspect I would rate it lower if something similar had preceded it.
