UGH GORGEOUS BANNER. I love Carey Mulligan and that movie. This is me from the Review forums, by the way ;)

Really nice introduction. I like the idea of listing out "what you know" as a Healer, which is really just all the heartbreaking things that one must encounter on a daily basis. The part about being so pale they look covered in flour is a nice touch, and so are the asparagus-green eyes. You've chosen some really beautiful and unusual metaphors and similes here. Skin cells can remember things too. This is a really, really beautifully written story.

I wish you hadn't used "atrocious" twice to describe children--the part about them being atrocious warriors could probably use another adjective, because it has the potential to be really really poignant and memorable.

Poppy Pomfrey as a patient in the children's ward--brilliant. You've given us insight into a virtually ignored character and explained her career choice without even stating why she chose it. Wonderful.

I love the way you ended this part, "You have to make use of it before it's gone." This is some brilliant writing. I'm so glad you asked me to review this. :)

Author's Response: Hello! Thank you for coming by! Your time is greatly appreciated.

I'm quite overwhelmed by your very kind compliments. But I really am quite happy you've enjoyed the story and especially that you found the descriptions alright; these always scare me.

Also, thank you for pointing out the 'atrocious' thing. I'll, hopefully, have the time to go back to it and see how I can make it more effective! :)

I have this idea that we don't always know why /exactly/ we choose to do something. I suppose she's going to learn, eventually, all the proper reasons as to why this job suited her so well though!

Once again, thank you for the review and thank you for offering. -hugs-
