* LackOfEmpathy: Guess who? He wouldn't be Tom Riddle if he had an ounce of empathy in him.


Added DiffLines:

* TheSociopath: Tom, as in canon, is incapable of feeling love, compassion, guilt, or empathy, though he's pretty good at faking it.

Added DiffLines:

* PrecociousCrush: Ginny's crush on Harry doesn't count, since he's only a year older, but her heavily implied crush on Tom does, since he's sixteen. On the surface, an eleven year old having an unrequited crush on an older boy seems harmless, even normal, but the full truth of the matter is ''way'' creepier than that. It doesn't help that Tom appears to be ''encouraging'' it.


Added DiffLines:

* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: Or, rather, Lonely Girl Seeks Nice Boy. The main reason Ginny has a crush on Harry is because of how nice and brave and heroic he is. She's implied to develop a crush on Tom because he's nice to her and listens to her. [[FalseFriend Yeah...]]


Added DiffLines:

* WasItAllALie: Yep. From start to finish, and Ginny fell for it, hook, line, and sinker.

Added DiffLines:

* DefiantToTheEnd: Even when she's powerless against him, Ginny refuses to go quietly.


Added DiffLines:

* OhCrap: A deadly serious one when Ginny realizes what "Tom Marvolo Riddle" is an anagram for.


Added DiffLines:

* SanitySlippage: Ginny, from the very start, but especially after the attack on Halloween. By the end, she's barely keeping herself together, and one gets the sense that telling herself she has to stop Tom is the only way she's kept a firm enough grip on her sanity to be functioning. [[spoiler:When she realizes he's Voldemort, her sanity nearly shatters entirely.]]

* SpannerInTheWorkds: [[spoiler:In the end, Ginny herself. While she couldn't fight him forever, she did manage to hold Tom off long enough to ensure that his full possession of her doesn't happen until the night the Mandrakes will be ready to cure everyone. Ginny's resistance is the only reason Tom wasn't able to carry out his plan in full, much earlier.]]

Despite its ForegoneConclusion, The Very Secret Diary is able to draw out a lot of characterization, FridgeHorror, and suspense out of its subject. The story can be found [[http://www.sugarquill.net/read.php?storyid=1026&chapno=1 here]], and the author's account on ''The Sugar Quill'' can be found [[http://www.sugarquill.net/index.php?action=profile&id=1 here]]. The fanfic has since been deleted from ''The Sugar Quill'', but someone shared it [[http://archiveofourown.org/works/2345300/chapters/5171522 here]] and there is also a German translation that can still be read [[http://www.fanfiktion.de/s/46b394cf00002d99067007d0/2/The-Very-Secret-Diary-by-Arabella here]] if it should be deleted again. If you do not speak German, the [[https://translate.google.pl/translate?sl=de&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=pl&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.fanfiktion.de%2Fs%2F46b394cf00002d99067007d0%2F2%2FThe-Very-Secret-Diary-by-Arabella&edit-text= Google translation]] is perfectly readable, though be warned that the writing style suffers.

Not to be confused with [[TheVerySecretDiaries The Very Secret Diaries]].

Many stories in the fandom comment on the nature of the relationship between Tom and Ginny, but few do it as well as this one, and the story comes highly recommended.

Added DiffLines:

* TheCharmer: Tom Riddle, of course.


Added DiffLines:

* ConsummateLiar: Guess. Tom frequently feeds lies and half-truths to Ginny, both to further his plan and just for kicks.

* BreakTheCutie: It's a long, slow process for Ginny.
* CantKillYouStillNeedYou: Ginny keeps Tom from just killing her in this way in the final chapters, by reminding him that if he kills her, he's back to square one and will have to start again with someone new.
* ClingyJealousGirl:
** Ginny, towards Harry, a little bit, though it's relatively harmless -- just perfectly ordinary frustration any eleven year old would feel if her crush seemed way more interested in his female friend than her.
** Tom acts like a male version towards Ginny, accusing her of abandoning him every time she goes for too long without writing.



* DoomedByCanon: Ginny gets possessed. That much is inevitable. Also inverted -- knowing how the actual book ends takes the edge off the fic's rather bleak ending.



* KickTheDog: Tom bullies Ginny well past the point where he's won. Cause he ''evil''.

* {{Yandere}}: Tom acts like one towards Ginny, though he doesn't so much "love" her as "need" her...

* PsychologicalThriller: Despite the presence of magic and all it entails, what makes the story so gripping is the mind games Tom plays on Ginny, and seeing her fight back.
