Oh goodness... this probably my single favourite thing you've ever written... which is saying something as I do so adore your writing. There were too many gorgeous little fragments in this story, beautiful and heartbreaking imagery. It's pared back and imperfect, showing the dirty undertow that exists beyond. Especially when contrasted against this depiction of Pansy and Blaise in their youth:

"She and he were the same, once. Peas in a pod. Fresh and new and filled with ideals."

I thought it was wonderfully insightful. Have you ever seen the movie Lantana? It's an Aussie film, anyway, I digress. The symbols just reminded me of the film and the plant in many ways. The glossy, beautiful finish and the murky weeds that linger underneath. Your Pansy's strikes me as quite the same.

In any case, I thought your figurative language and evocative imagery were shown to their best in this story. Short, crisp sentences punctuating the otherwise languid prose. Very lovely and very dark all at once.

wow really? your favourite thing?? -sque-
thank you once again for totally understanding this!! you always get my writing, and i love you for it!

Lantana is an amazing film! Deadly Sins is very loosely based on it, and yes, i can see the symbolism here too so thank you! im glad you noticed that about this fic and about pansy because she is very much like a weed - beautiful on the outside, but damaged and impure underneath.

wow kylie- what wonderful praise!! thank you thank you thank you! i am thrilled you liked this hun!!
