Hello! In regards to your Author's Note, I can say that I haven't read "Sitting in the Orange Tree" and I still found everything understandable (though it was also mysterious and I am full of questions). So I don't think that you need to worry in that regard. :)

To begin, your summary really drew me in. Ariana has always been a very intriguing character, underexplored in fanfiction, and stories about the afterlife are always interesting because there's so many things that you can do with the concept.

I found your description of the afterlife (or a stop in the progress of life after death) very interesting. I wonder why Ariana was chosen to become this keeper of sorts (was it because of the tragedies in her life? Is she suited for this job in a way that no one else is?). I love how you've made time irrelevent and random in the afterlife; the afterlife doesn't have to be orderly or straightforward and this displays that concept magnificantly. Most of all I'm very intrigued by your almost vague descriptions of the afterlife. What role does Strawberry Hill play in her life? Can she touch the lake without it harming her? What happens to those who are lost in the Orchard? Are they lost there forever?

I suppose that this all adds up to the fact that I'm very curious about the direction of this story. Will Ariana see her brothers? If so, what effect will their appearance have on her? Would she stop being the keeper? So many questions (sorry for all of them)... And such an easy way to answer them all. :)

All in all, I think that you wrote beautifully here. Your descriptions are wonderful and your story has caught my interest. Great work! :D
