Gubby! No way. Is it possible that you always amaze me more and more? Each time I read something new, I just go thinking that you simply have talent beyond compare.
What was this? It was poetic and terrifying. i love when you get terrifying in your writing. No one can chill me to the bone with mere words like you can. I loved the Greek Mythology. The story of Hades and Persephone always made me shiver, always made me feel trapped and stolen, but lured and sinfully satisfied when I imagined myself in Persephone's skin.
The words you always use...'tiles of the stars', honestly, just stop ripping my heart to shreds already. i always get fever when reading your darker stories. And when there's lust and passion involved as well, oh just dig me a grave, because I always die a little due to the way you so fantastically carry it all out.
You know, out of all the great and wonderfully talented authors, I have to say I admire you the most. 'tis just the truth.
Still. Just wow at this short piece. O.O You managed to stun me through what? 600 words? zomg, i am way too much under your charm, i swear.
Yeah, basically I just wanted to say that I loved this. Very much.
Author's Response: The problem is that my talent is considerable, at best, and incredibly miniscule when compared to someone of your talent. But I really can't tell you how flattered and honored I am and how much I absolutely adore this review.
I don't know how this fic became the way it is; it just happened, but I'm really quite pleased with the result. And when I started writing, building off Kalina's prompt, the myth just sort of slid in to the writing. I've always been fascinated with mythology, and recently, with Persephone's story - it is horrible and terrifying but, as you said, almost sinfully satisfying when you look at it from Persephone's point of view.
Of everything in this fic, I think I like the star mosaic thing the least :P But I'm so, so happy you liked it so much, and I assure you that I don't want to rip your heart to shreds. Although I have to say, I like my darker stories better, too; and with reviews like these, I'm dying a little, too.
But really, what am I supposed to say to that? I am nothing compared to you guys, but that I could ever compare to all of these wonderful authors... and... ugh, what am I supposed to say to that? Can I say anything at all? No. So we'll leave it at that.
I can't thank you enough, Liz, you are the hugest inspiration and an amazing friend. My heart stopped for a second when I first saw this review. Thank you.
