Tom Riddle And The I-Just-Got-Wrecked

Lord Voldemort's perspective of "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone." Mostly played for laughs. Enjoy!


3. Meeting Quirinus Quirrell

Finally, some good news. I was finally found. Unfortunately, by a bald, stuttering idiot.

I was in the forest when I saw him approach. I immediately prepared to attack.

"Calm yourself," said the man. "I mean you no harm. I have come to help you."

I scooted back and looked him in the eye. "Who are you?" I inquired.

"I am Quirinus Quirrell," he replied. "Together, we can find the way to revive you from your pain and return to you a body you can continue your work in."

"And how will you do that?" I asked.

"The Sorcerer's Stone is in Gringotts," he said. "Together, we can break in and steal it. The Elixir of Life will no doubt revive you."

"Then I will come with you," I said. "On the conditions that you do as I say, no matter what the cost."

Quirrell's face had the same peaky look as the other victims I've possessed. He will be very useful indeed. "I will," he replied.

"Come with me," he said. "I have a position at Hogwarts. Harry James Potter is going there this year. If we go, we can kill him."

That does it. "Quirrell, I am accepting your help for our mutual benefit. It is a deal."

"You won't regret this," said Quirrell.

We started across the forest, and continued to talk as I got to know my new (possessed) servant. From what I was told, Quirrell taught Muggle Studies for some time at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, before he took a year-long sabbatical starting a few months ago in order to improve himself and gain first-hand experience as a teacher, though in reality he had taken a "Grand Tour" around the world in order to hopefully find whatever was left of me after my defeat at Godric's Hollow. His journey was successful, and in the Albanian forests he located me.

"Why have you done this?" I asked, curious about what his motives were before I possessed him.

"I don't know," he said. "Partly out of curiosity, partly out of that unacknowledged desire for importance I have felt since my childhood. At the very least, I fantasized that I could be the man who tracked you down, but at best, might learn your skills."

"Very good reasons indeed," I replied. "I like you, Quirrell." Though the last part was partly a lie, as he is going to be very useful to me.

"Thank you," he replied. "What is evil to you?"

"Unexistent," I replied. "There is no good and evil. There is only power, and those too weak to seek it."

I paused for a moment to let this sink in.

I then latched onto his body, and we finished the trip to Hogwarts. After the sabbatical, Quirrell adopted a turban for everyday use. When asked about it, he claimed to have received it from an African prince to compensate him for disposing of a zombie. It was also rumored that he encountered vampires in the Black Forest, in Albania, and had a nasty bit of trouble with a hag who tried to kill him.

At some point, Quirrell came into possession of Vault 998 in the new vault area of Gringotts Wizarding Bank. He kept a small box that contained a large crate, a chest containing Circe's Chocolate Frog Card given to James Potter by Professor Cuthbert Binns before Quirrell came into possession of it, and other various belongings.
