Heyyy, here for the TGS Dragon Duel! Which, as it turns out, was a fab excuse to come back to this story which is mad but not rubbish. Update?

Wow, I really don't know what to say. I read this chapter and the last one to catch up and I'm newly drawn in because I just love the abstract style in which this is written. I think all the fragments and not-quite-right phrasing and odd metaphors meshed with memories make perfect sense, really, because that's how you feel when you lose someone so close to you it feels like your own skin, and I can't even imagine what kinds of crazy things we all might end up feeling after we pass away.

I'm in awe of your ability to infuse the bleakness of the theme here with the twins' trademark style and humor--for instance, in this chapter, with Forge acting like an out-of-body experience combined with some kind of hallucination for poor Fred. I love the bizarre way in which he relived family memories, especially the excruciating detail with which you described him trying to eat the rock.

Yeah, this is just really cool. I'm favoriting it to show you that I'm serious about returning if you decide to update again :)

Thank you for this absolutely lovely and completely unexpected review! Your compliments mean a whole bunch to me. Fred's memories are sort of there, but he's not experiencing them properly; they seem to be warped, and are on the verge of being somewhat nightmarish. At least that's what I was trying to convey in this chapter. It's a kind of strange afterlife he's in, not so much a life, but a breaking open of his mind and all his dreams and memories spilling out around him in a tangle. Well, I do hope this doesn't sound too odd! :P

I do really want to update this! But I'm just at a loss at where to go next. It didn't help that my notes got lost and I've had to re-plan many things. But once I sort out where the story is going to go, I'll be back and writing more chapters for this! And rearranging the fic as I go along. I really do miss updating this!

Thank you so so much for reading and reviewing AND favouriting! This has just made my day ♥
