Kate, before I start, I must say, when you first requested this to be reviewed, I just sat here for a while and thought about how I could possibly review you. I'm such a huge fan of yours; I can't critique you! And to be honest, there's absolutely nothing to critique here. This piece is art, it's perfection!
Firstly, I will gush about how incredibly interesting your second person POV makes everything. It's such a captivating insight you bring to the story with it; it drew me in from the very first line! It's so masterfully done and I'm absolutely amazed! Second person can become a mess so easily (trust me, I've ruined it plenty of times), but you've kept the flow of this with the POV and added something so unique to this story!
Beyond the perspective, another thing which drew me in was the beautiful, melodic language you used. It had a poetic quality - the words were strung together perfectly. All the descriptions of emotions just seemed to flow so well and everything in the writing seemed so natural.
The description I loved most was your description of Molly in part 10. It's so short and yet so poignant and deep. It creates this intense air of mystery about her and carries Molly through the whole rest of the piece. I love how you can use such few words to convey so much. Teach me your ways! (please?)
Although I must admit, I was a tad bit confused at first (this may just be my brain being more than slightly frazzled after having 3 tests today) but slowly, it started all making sense. I had multiple "aha!" moments, when everything fit together so perfectly it can only be called genius.
You're one of my favorite writers, Kate, on so many levels. I know so many writers who can create a wonderful plot or create intriguing characters or use words effectively, one who can do this that an the other but never one who can do all of it as well as you. You are truly an inspiration and there's really nothing I can say to critique this. I love this piece as I do the rest of your writing. You're simply brilliant!

Author's Response: god, i have no idea how to respond to this! THANK YOU would be a fantastic start!

You have made me blush. seriously. i don't think I deserve all that *hides*

I love second person POV. There is something so magical about writing it and I am so pleased you liked it. this fic would not have worked without it, I don't think.

I wanted this to be rather abstract and poetic. I didn't want anything to be glaringly obvious, because they aren't to Teddy. the 'aha' moments you had were expected - that was what i wanted from readers. It is not meant to make complete sense straight away!

*blushes* there I go again. god. i don't know what to say. thank you so much, for all your wonderful comments and thank you for reading. i really appreciate it hun!
