Wow, this was really wonderful! It's so sad and haunting. At first I thought Lavender was just running from place to place because she was trying to get away from her memories from the war, and it made sense that she'd do that. But then you revealed the plot twist and it made it even sadder. The contrast between Lavender before the war, all put together with big dreams she could accomplish, and Lavender post-war falling apart and clinging to fantasies, was really well written.

Parvati was great, I felt so badly for her. All she's doing is trying to help and it must be so frustrating for her that she can't get through to her - she can tell Lavender needs help, but Lavender is only pushing her away.

This was really well written, great job!

Author's Response: Hey dear! Thank you so much for choosing this story to review! I appreciate your words and i'm pleased that you liked how this was done. I really enjoy delving into these type of stories and I was quite worried with this one that I wasn't quite getting where I wanted to go and exploring the idea of reality vs. dreams and trying to show how deep Lavenders fantasies were. To her, escaping reality was the only mode of survival to her. She has nothing else to hang onto and so she goes to places that she can still be what she thinks she is. She'll have to go through some major growth and change to be able to see the world in front of her.

Yah, Parvati cares for her and wants to be that rock that Lavender needs but she's way out of her depth and hasn't realized that she's lost Lavender already. She can't help her at the moment even though she wants to be there. She doesn't realize too that her very presence can hinder Lavender because Parvati, in Lavender's eyes, has everything that Lavender desires - the ability to move on, the ability to still be beautiful, to have people want her and Lavender has just fallen through the cracks. To an extent she doesn't even want to admit that there is an issue. As long as she has her books she thinks she's going to be alright.

Thanks for the review!!
