Laura. Oh gosh. I can't even.
This was so incredibly beautiful. Honestly, the whole piece was this wonderfully executed work of art. Gosh, I'm in awe of your talent!
For your first one-shot, you did wonderfully. This piece had just the right amount of detail. Between the first paragraph and the banner, I could tell it had something to do with death, dying, etc, so it all made perfect sense.
Your choice of words here is magnificent, like it is in everything else you write! I love the way you describe her as the child that never grew up. I also simply adored the section about the 1 of 3. It created this sense of hollowness that made me so incredibly sad reading this!
I love love love your use of second person. It's done so incredibly well. I can imagine her hurt and grief as she struggles to talk to her dead sister but she knows she cannot. It's so insanely sad and yet I can only marvel at how well you write!
I'm so amazed at your talent, Laura! Teach meee! No honestly, I bet this is the most useless review you've gotten but there's simply nothing wrong with this piece. The idea and execution of it is marvelous. I love this piece, as I love the rest of your writing!

Author's Response: Hello!

Thank you, so so much, for this beautiful review! It means so much! It was my first real stab at a oneshot, but I'm so chuffed you liked it, I really am! I wanted to suggest that theres this underlying sense of binding between siblings, even those not so close, and grief was a big theme. The way she was blank, almost dead herself. And yeah, totally, I've always seen Bertha as a big kid who just dabbled in the wrong things...because thats really what happened. From the books we know she followed Peter into the forest and thats how she died...she was a fool, through and through.

I'm really over the moon you feel there's nothing I can add to this, cos, like I said, it was my first real attempt at a one-shot. It's amazing to know it was okay! (Though this may have to do with the 500 word length...what a helper, haha!)

Thank you tons! You're the best in the universe, thank you! x
