    Summary

    He'd been wandering London for weeks when he sees him. The pale faced child with wispy black hair, skinny shoulders covered in threadbare clothing. He’s soft in the way children are, but amidst the gaggle of little bodies sheltered within the battered gates, he stands with the air of a man grown. Marek glanced at the pinned sign that read ‘Wool’s Orphanage’ and then back at the child. He had seen this boy before, with Evelyn, who insisted on marathoning the films every year, who liked to regale him with stories about the characters. This boy was Voldemort.

    Summary

    Latin; a dead language with no practical applications except perhaps the deciphering of old texts and as a particularly quaint party trick.

    Thankfully, as Harry finds out, Latin is not as dead as he was first taught when he decided to learn the language. It wouldn't have mattered anyway, of course; he loved Latin, and would have been proud to know it even had it been as useless as it was pretty. But in the world of Wizards, the world of Magic, Harry realizes his rare talent with words is particularly valuable, and allows him to use magic that no one's ever heard of, that no one's ever seen. But as time goes on, and he becomes more and more entangled in the webs spun by those around him, he starts to realize just how deep the magical rabbit hole goes and how dangerous power like his can be.

    All Harry had ever wanted was for the world to make sense.

    Summary

    To speak things into existence was a talent only those who cultivated were able to do. To imbue their words with spiritual energy and cause the world to abide by them; willing or otherwise, it was a coveted skill. Words were the reason the sects held so much power, words were the means used to fly upon swords, and words were the only advantage humanity held over the demonic realm.

    Shen Yuan been too young to use words of power, so they had taken his away.
