Hi! I'm here for our swap!

Oh my, i'm not entirely sure what to say about this, i love it though. That sounds a bit morbid and weird but you've managed to turn such an intense issue into this really lovely piece of art. I think i loved it because you tackled such a sensitive issue that many people just tend to avoid and try to pretend like it really isn't an issue and made it so real and raw. It was like a huge sucker punch to the face. I've had a friend who's dealt with this, but she didn't express it in the same way as Lucy did at all and it was interesting to see this portrayed as it was. I could literally feel the emotion. I study psych and nothing i've ever studied up to this point about this has really made this seem as real as this has because it has this ridiculous human aspect to it. Textbooks have a way of making things feel 2 dimensional. Anyway, I loved how you wrote this and how it started out in third and then transitioned into second. I was so absorbed in the story that I didn't even realize that it had turned into second person till about halfway through the story. I also liked some of the cyclic things you did, the beginning with Molly, and then the counting and bringing it up again and giving it even more meaning. It felt like every sentence just held such meaning. I thought about posting a few sentences that i really liked but I think it would just end up posting the whole story.

Honestly, this is such a great job and digging into this and really just making it, i don't know how to explain this, but just making self harm not seem like a horrible disgusting thing but also not glorifying it in anyway. It just was something that happened and that happens to people. This is exactly why I love books so much, is that they bring to life something from everyday life. I'm rambling, but this story was really well done and well crafted (there were a few spelling errors like :bringing her hands o her face: or you mental extract yourself: )

Author's Response: Hey SilentConfession! Sorry for taking awhile to respond, I guess things got hectic all of a sudden. This is something I've wanted to write for awhile but I was sort of scared of having it on my authors page in case everything went wrong and because it felt very painful as I was watching it, but like you said it's one of those things that just doesn't get talked about very much. I guess things are different for everyone.

I think it's such a human thing and well, yeah, I care a lot about it and I hate the way things are so clinical and clearcut about self harm. I don't know, now I'm just rambling.

I didn't want to write about in a way that would make anything any worse for someone struggling with it, and... I don't think it's disgusting. I think it's sad.

There's loads of typos, ahha, due to writing this all in quite a rush. Thanks for such a lovely review! :)
