Mel, I told you when you showed me a snippet of this that is was gorgeous. And guess what? It's STILL gorgeous. ♥ You need to write stylistic things more often -- this is inspired by a poem and is a poem, all on its own. I'm already eagerly anticipating the second chapter. :D

I love the characterizations you've given to two minor characters -- so different from how I wrote them both in ITR and that makes them even more enjoyable! And you tied it into the 'anyone' and the 'no one' splendidly.

And your parentheticals! I detest them when they're used to a poor advantage, and yet they were my favorite part of this story because they contributed so well to the plot. I think they gave it a depth it might not have had otherwise; truly brilliant stuff, Mel. :D

Favorite bit: He drinks the same ale a harvest blend, spiced with a hint of pumpkin and eats the same bread as they do. He is not adorned in gold leafing, nor carved from some rare, ancient stone. -- There are such warm feelings that emerge from how you wrote that. Warm, autumnal feelings. It's so gorgeous!

Such lovely writing! Such beautiful descriptions! I am in perpetual awe and shall be keeping my eyes open for chapter two. :3 Write on, says I! ♥

Author's Response: THIS REVIEW. ♥♥♥

I love writing stylistic things, true story. But I can't let myself write them too often or I'd make like zero progress with anything. You know how slowly I write (my blisteringly sluggish word race pace ring any bells?) normal narrative... well stylized narrative is like even slower. -woe-

It is /such/ a relief to hear that you like the usage of anyone and no one. Literally, everytime I needed to use no one it necessitated a double negative and I didn't know if I wanted to take that stylized risk and urgh. I had to play with those bits for a long time. I'M HUGGING YOUR COMPLIMENTS AND NOT SHARING THEM EVER. ♥

I really don't typically use parentheticals, and don't really like to... I'm much more of a dash sort of person... but I wanted to mimic the style of ee cummings' writing a bit and so parentheticals it was.

Chapter two will be posted next week sometime... maybe sooner... we'll see how my will power holds out. :P

Anyway... thank you so much, Rachel. I really admire your writing and seeing your compliments here makes me so very happy.

xoxo
