This was /beautiful/. Never before have I seen Percy captured so brilliantly. Never. He is not a caricature of pomp, or pride, or selfishness, or magically cured of all three. This is one of the most absolutely pure and human stories I've ever read, because you GET Percy and his painful aftermath. You really do.

Each word here is placed so... delicately, and deliberately, and it is so clear that this is what you are meant to do. To be able to write like this is just - I wish I could imitate your style to any degree of wellness. It flows but moves independent and yet along with the story, and now I'm rambling and it doesn't even matter.

This is brilliant, brilliant, brilliant writing, Lily. Honestly. You should be proud of this talent. It's truly amazing.



Author's Response: baw jane (h)

To me it was very scary to approach Percy--despite all of the hatred it's pretty easy to build up towards him in the books, he's a person! A real, breathing living person and when there are people involved there's always hope for their humanity, and it's usually always there, even if you can't see it very well.

It would be one of the most horrible things I can imagine to come back to your family only to lose one of them--and I also think that that loss would feel inextricable from all of the guilt of your past. Other than that, I didn't really have a plan--I sat down and I wrote in the library, and made the font very tiny because I get paranoid that people are going to read over my shoulder O-o

It took me about fifteen minutes to write in concrete writing time, with my fingers on the keys and all. I've gone through and made edits although I don't think they've made it through the queue yet...there were several mistakes in spelling >>

I'm so grateful for your love for this story because honestly angst is the oldest enemy for me. It's not easy for me to write heavy things without feeling like I teeter into the melodramatic, so to see that at least in one, well-qualified author's eyes this is a good entry to the genre, means a lot to me.
