This turned out really well, Sian! The stream of consciousness style here allows the reader deeper into Minerva's mind and heart - I could feel her pain and understand why she fell at the end. The rhythm of each sentence keeps bringing me back to the waves, the sound of the water hitting the shore then receeding again. It's very beautiful what you've been able to do here (and I'm very jealous of it!).

It's always great to see another Tom/Minerva story, and although yours doesn't make Tom explicit, he is there in the violence of your descriptions. What I loved most, however, is the way that Minerva feels she has to act around him, putting up defenses only to give in. Her defeat isn't permanent, though, and that's so her. :D

Excellent work! Though I'm not at all surprised. ^_^

Author's Response: Thank you! I really loved writing in the stream of consciousness style, it's such a fun way to write. I'm so happy you felt it taking you to the sound of the waves, that's exactly what I wanted the rhythm to do (and I'm very jealous of the way you write as well XD).
I agree, I love seeing Tom/Minerva's around, there really aren't nearly enough of them. She's a resilient one, Minerva, I've always wanted to write her and I really must do it more often. There's simply far too many characters that are on my 'must write' list :D
Thank you so much for the lovely review *hugs*
