Review:Elesphyl says:
You always amaze me. Every single time. Never mind that it's 500+ words, it's beautiful. Possibly one of the most beautiful pieces of short fiction I've ever read. And because I am as repetitive as a cat's meow, I must again cite how beautiful this line is:

There is no fun in burning a moth's wings without an open window watching.

It's so singular! So captivating, so haunting! I would die for that line, Gubby, because it's so poetically you. The imagery of the moths throughout is absolutely entrancing. I cannot express much more how much I liked this. You've brought mythology together with my meager prompt - and you have the lyricism of a young Virginia Woolf within you, my dear. :)

I'm astonished that you were able to pull this out of my silly little prompt. Needless to say, your genius is boundless. I loved it. It was, in one word, divine.

Make of that what you will. ^_^

Author's Response: Is there a reason you continue to inflate my sizable ego? Every time I've read this review (and I've read it a lot) I feel shocked into silence. The moth's wings line was actually edited just before I put it up - before it was "without providing an open window," which was much clunkier, I think. But you absolutely cannot die; what are the rest of us mortals to do without you? Nor can you compare me to Virginia Woolf (no matter how much I detested To the Lighthouse, it was beautifully written); I don't deserve it.

I am so grateful for this prompt. I was iffy at first, but it was so nice to get out of my comfort zone and do something that's actually short, and that I actually quite love. Thank you so much, for everything. Even if I can't thank you enough.
