* Variant in the Harry Potter one-shot "[[https://m.fanfiction.net/s/2565609/130/Odd-Ideas Ambition]]" (part of ''Odd Ideas'' by Rorschach's Blot): After some of Harry's actions, Dumbledore says this about Harry, but to someone who is ''not'' Harry:
-->"I'm reminded of another student that began building up his network of contacts and his store of favors when he went to this school," Dumbledore said softly. "Only he didn't do things nearly so well, nor was he so thorough."
-->"Albus," Minerva gasped. "You can't be comparing him to . . . to . . ."
-->"Voldemort?" Dumbledore asked with a raised eyebrow. "No. I was comparing him to me."

A character with a deceased LoveInterest or failed romance runs into someone who causes a FlashbackEcho of their former love. The character will often look startled, then say "Sorry, for a moment you reminded me of someone I once knew." The two easily form a connection, [[ReplacementLoveInterest foreshadowing a possible future relationship]], though one haunted by the [[TheFirstCutIsTheDeepest tragic end of the previous romance]].
