Review:The Dirigible Sugarplum says:
Oooh, dark-ish fairytales. I'm so up for it. *rubs hands together eagerly*

I have to admit that I had to read this twice to really get it. Every line seemed to ooze a double meaning, every word a hidden message, a code for us readers to crack--but that's part of what made it so interesting.

I love your descriptions in this; the phrasing of your words seems to emanate this tainted fairytale aura, all magical and mystical. All the metaphors and figurative language in this added to the vague mystery that made it even more fascinating (and slightly confusing xD) to read--especially the candy one at the beginning. It felt out of place at first but gradually seemed to settle in, with the candy sort of representing Dom's innocence and naivety at a young age.

What I love about this fic is that there are so many layers to it. You could interpret this as the dark fairytale that it is at face value, or a Next-Gen interpretation where Teddy breaks Victoire's heart by chasing after his obsession with Dom, or something that's part of a bigger picture that's much more complex. I don't think we could fathom its limitations--You're starting a horror fic revolution here! xD

Anyway, before I ramble too much, I think you did a pretty bang-up job (What is with me and weird expressions today? I blame the visiting relatives) on this, especially for a 3 a.m. first attempt at horror. ^^

Author's Response: It's a fic that can definitely be confusing, and I'm glad you noticed that it can be interpreted in two different ways - literally and metaphorically :D

Oddly enough, I never found the candy bit strange, but people seem to catch on to it. It's provocative (and partly because of its innocence) in a lot of media images, so I thought it would suit Dom well,

Hee, thank you! :D Thank you so much for all the reviews ^__^
