Hi, here for the review swap!

Wow, this was such a fun and unique story Iím so glad that I decided to read it! I think my favourite part of it was the way you carefully showed how each layer was painted on to perfection and had so much care put into it. It was almost like a big reveal scene going on throughout the chapter because I didnít know what to expect from each addition to the painting so it was a lot of fun to read.

Another thing I really loved was the artistís love for art and painting, it just made the story even more enjoyable to see his creation unfold in front of him. Even though his personality wasnít as strong as the portraits one I still got such a clear sense of him and he really warmed himself to me through that and that was so nice to see.

The real Fat Lady was so much fun to read too! I really loved the fact she was friends with Violet in real life because it just made this story even funnier how they couldnít be departed in death and gossiped away in each otherís portraits. She really was vile, though in a good way! It reminded me of that scene in the films when she insists on singing until she breaks the glass and just that image was reflected in here so well and it was just really wonderful.

I adored Jeremiah, he was such a dear! I think the way he handled the delicacy of having a mistake in the portrait was really excellent and showed just how lovely he was. Then the way he just wants to help her settle into her new home was another really lovely scene and just made me want to aw away. This was such a great to the story!

Author's Response: Hi Kiana! :)

Aw, I'm so glad you liked it! I loved writing this story and it's amazing to get such nice feedback from you here. I quite liked writing the opening scene and how she was created so I'm glad you liked it.

It's interesting to hear you liked the artist, but I'm happy to hear it. I imagined him quite engrossed in his craft and far more interested in that than in anything else. We only really see him through the Fat Lady's eyes, but she does see him pretty much as he is, and she's a lot more three-dimensional than he is here, so to speak. :P

Haha yes! I loved writing the real Fat Lady and how obnoxious she was and how she inspired the portrait's behaviour. Violet was fun to imagine as well. Ah yes, I love that scene - I'm so glad you thought she came across well.

Aw, Jeremiah is so wonderful! I'm glad you liked him as well. He's a very classical gentleman and has only the best intentions, and he was quite fun to write.

Thanks so much for the lovely review! :D
