Review:Cedrics Blueyed Girl says:
Mel!!! It has been far too long... and for that, I am the failure. You in no way failed with this piece. I never ceased to be thrilled, shocked (in a good way, of course), and inspired by your writing.

I don't know how you ever manage it, but you are an absolute genius - your writing style is so original, so interesting to read, so... I just don't know what. I'm sure you could think of the word for it because you always think of the perfect word for everything.

I especially enjoyed this piece because it was another take on the ultra-mysterious story of Helena and the diadem. I wrote a story about it, too, and I really enjoy reading other author's interpretations of things I've written about... especially you =]

Even though you have such small space, you bring Helena to life so well. The first few paragraphs perfectly embody her grace and what she used to be. I sympathize with her so much in this story, whereas, in mine, I rather hate her!

I'm really glad that I clicked that link in your signature. You never fail to impress me.

Author's Response: Alex!

How ashamed am I that I haven't responded to this yet?? There's really no excuse for it, especially since you were my first review for this fic!

And I KNOW you wrote a story about Helena too, silly, because I read it and loved it, and you should know it was really an inspiration to me when I was writing this one-shot. Your portrayal of this scene was excellent and really motivated me when I was struggling with writing this one. :-)

I've noticed there's a tendency to write Helena in a wholly detestable way, so I wanted to do something different by showing how a person might also be able to pity her, even though she did such a terrible thing.


I'm really glad you liked this! Thanks so much for reviewing!

xoxo
Melanie
