Okay, that was just... WOW.

*composes self*

Hi, Melanie! :) I've been hearing great things about this one-shot and I thought it was time to start checking out your stories, starting with this one. Just... wow. I don't even know how you began writing this, much less thought about it. It's incredible! Granted, I was a little bit confused at times, trying to figure out who was what, but man, was this absolutely gorgeous!

Things started to get clearer when I got to this part:

Could you love a man with the soul of a poet, if he had a face like the back end of a bus? I thought you could have, once, but you chose the face of a god with the soul of a used broom salesman. You resided on the mountain with the other immortals and tossed me crumbs from your banquets.

I was just floored. What a clever and poetic way to put it. And then when I got to this:

I closed my eyes and was dashed upon the unforgiving rocks, swept away by muddy waters, until I had drowned in the ash of fallen stars

...simply took my breath away.

What a lovely piece of writing. ♥ So, to answer your question, there is absolutely nothing wrong with you. :P


Author's Response: Hi Gill! Thanks so much for the fantastic review! I don't even know what to say, except that I'm so flattered. This is one of the more obscure things I have written, so a lot of it is intentionally vague, and I was concentrating a lot on using words to create images, rather than convey a solid idea - so to the extent that any of it was confusing, don't worry - entirely my fault, and for the most part intentional. ^_^

Thanks again!
