Wow...I can't believe this didn't have any reviews. It's a freaking masterpiece. It was humorous, but heartbreaking. You managed to narrate it in such a way that it was very carefully depressing. It's the kind of depressing that makes you think, rather than the in-your-face depressing. Am I making sense? I confuse myself...

I think this was magical in a very different way. It made me think of Fred Astaire. I remember hearing once that someone helped him up the stairs when he was old, and just remarked on how surreal it was that someone like Fred Astaire needed help to walk. To know that your true love, your livelihood, your whole world...that you are too old and too weak to do it anymore - it would be devastating. I mean, what would you do? No wonder Mr. Rastrick was delusional. I would be, too.

This was fantastic. 10/10.


Author's Response: Sarah. You silly scaly man fish you. I can't believe that you nominated this of all things for the featured one shot. I am thrilled to death (not literally of course) that you caught onto the sneaky depressing feel of the piece. I only really wanted it to be sad in retrospect and for it to be funny (as funny as I can manage) in the moment. I can't say that I had thought of Fred Astaire when I had written this, but in retrospect it is such a beautiful connection to RL.

Thank you so much!
