I wonder how long Tom Riddle spent anagramming his name trying to come up with something cool.
[The Slytherin common room. Tom Riddle sits in an armchair with a quill and his small diary.]
TOM RIDDLE … Hmm let’s see.
I’M TODDLER. Nope.
TRIED MOLD. No.
LORD T-DIME. Lol. No.
Maybe I need more letters. TOM MARVOLO RIDDLE.
MARVEL DILDO MOTOR. DEFINITELY not.
VOMITED DOLL ARMOR. Ugh.
LORD … VOMIT … No! I like “Lord” though … Ooh! I can take this I and this A and this M and get “I am Lord.”
I AM LORD … DOLTMOVER
VOT … MOLDER … Not working. V is cool though. V is sexy.
VOL … METROD …
VOLDETROM … Kind of neat. I’ll ask the other lads what they think.
Lads canned Voldetrom. This is hopeless.
