Opening the Chamber of Secrets is not the only crime Tom Riddle commits as a Hogwarts student. But can young Minerva McGonagall prove his guilt? Also features Dumbledore and others. Complete.

Characters: Albus Dumbledore, Minerva McGonagall, Voldemort (Tom Riddle)
Why You Should Check It Out:

This fic (from 2002) is an angsty but sensitive coming-of-age story for Minerva McGonagall with detailed and insightful charactarisations, an engaging plot and exciting action scenes. Tom Riddle is a menacing presence here, and it’s clear that he’s on the path to becoming Voldemort while still very much an adolescent boy. There are some engaging and nicely drawn original characters, too, including Minerva’s owl! Another nice touch is the inclusion of a young Hagrid just after his expulsion from Hogwarts; like Tom, Hagrid is recognisably himself as an adolescent, without being a caricature.

Spoiler Alert!
