Review:NaidatheRavenclaw says:
Wow. This is an absolutely breath taking one shot. I love minor characters and I love angst and beautiful descriptions and bitter endings and you've got all of that here.

The entire thing was stunning, but this part in particular gave me chills: Instead she has the wilting candles, the stone of the floor and the glass of the windows that separates her from the furious storm outside. She will lie in bed and listen to her heart beat and trace shadows on the ceiling, afraid to touch the body deep in slumber that lies next to her, thinking of her window and the sun that rises toward it. WOW. The imagery and the emotion you can invoke from a few simple words is incredible.

And really, for being so short, this does invoke a lot of emotion. In such a short span of time, I get a feel for Daphne's situation and how she's feeling and that's just incredible. I love the last bit of dialogue as well. Because on one side, she's got a husband who she doesn't like being married to, and on the other side, she's got a partner that doesn't truly feel anything for her. And the whole thing is just perfection.

Excellent is all I can say.

Author's Response: Oh, wow, thank you so much! Your review is just... marvelous. I can't even sum up how much I appreciate it.

Honestly, I don't even know how you found this little thing - because it's been buried on the Recently Added list for weeks now - but I'm so very, very glad that you did.

I, too, am a fan of minor characters. I love how I can basically spin their lives for them because so little has actually been told about them. I'm very glad that you like them too, because it seems sometimes that people forget about them entirely.

Thank you for commenting on emotion! It's such a hard thing to gauge, you know? And I didn't know if any of it really came across like I wanted it to, so it's excellent that you think it did. Really, thanks again.

I hope you have a lovely morning/afternoon/evening, wherever you are.
