Harry/Voldemort or Harry/Tom Riddle may not be the most popular Harry Potter pairing, but it is more popular than you think.

As of 8 July 2013, there are 534 Harry/Voldemort fanworks at the Archive of Our Own (which is not even a major archive for HP fanfic).

Surprisingly (or not), there are dozens of ways to write this pairing, from darkfic to crack and from romance to angst.[1]

There are a lot of variations, a few of which are:

  • Harry is Voldemort's slave in a Voldemort Wins! dystopia
  • Harry travels back in time to meet Tom Riddle as a child and prevent him becoming evil
  • Voldemort is de-aged
  • Harry has a relationship with a horcrux form of Voldemort, including AUs in which it's Harry that ends up with the diary
  • Voldemort possesses someone, often after his supposed final death
  • Forced marriage
  • Dark!Harry
