Tom Riddle's Diary

A small, thin book with a shabby black cover. It was a diary, soggy wet, and on the first page marked "T. M. Riddle" in smudged ink. Completely blank pages. On the back cover was printed the name of the variety store on Vauxhall Road, London where it was purchased 50 years prior.


The ink was sucked into the blank page. Writing was also sucked in but to be replaced with new words from a person calling himself Tom Riddle. Riddle said that he had recorded his memories in the diary because he "knew there would always be people who would not want this diary read because it contained mamories of terrible things that had been covered up." Riddle said he knew of the Chamber of Secrets and had caught the person who had opened it the last time but he wasn't imprisoned. Riddle offered to show the memory and a small television screen appeared on a page halfway through June. Looking through it he was sucked into the page into a whirl of color and shadow.


Tom Riddle communicated with Ginny and "became stronger." She "poured her soul" into the diary about her brothers and poor misunderstood situation. She said Tom was "her best friend" then he "made her" do things that she didn't remember doing. He made her strangle the chickens, write messages on walls, and open the chamber and call out the Basilisk. Tom admitted that it had taken him 5 years to find and open the chamber. He also admitted to framing Hagrid then showed that his name was an anagram for "I am Lord Voldemort." He called the Basilisk to kill Harry. Riddle's outline was becoming clearer and more solid.


Fawkes brought the diary to him. He seized the basilisk fang on the floor and plunged it into the heart of the book. There was a long and dreadful, piercing scream. Ink spurted out of the diary in torrents. Riddle was writhing and twisting, screaming and flailing and then vanished.





At the end of the tunnel, on a solid wall were carved two entwined serpents with eyes set with great, glinting emeralds. Saying "open" in parseltongue the wall cracked open sliding smoothly out of sight revealing a very long dimly lit chamber. Towering stone pillars entwined with more carved serpents rose to support a ceiling lost in darkness, casting long black shadows through the odd, greenish gloom that filled the place. After the last pillar a statue high as the Chamber itself loomed into view, standing against the back wall. It was ancient and monkey-ish, with a long, thin beard that fell almost to the bottom of the wizard's sweeping stone robes, where two enormous gray feet stood on the smooth Chamber floor.
