Wow, that was really something. I love how it is all OC's, it makes this one shot particularly unique.
Your concerns - The style definitely isn't confusing, I think the style is what makes it so brilliant. I personally would have liked it to be longer mainly because I loved it so much but it isn't too brief at all. I think the tone fits the plot very well and the atmosphere is well developed as it is.
The dialogue between the characters was fantastic, the characterisation was really good.
Overall I really enjoyed it and I'm glad I got a chance to read this.Author's Response: Hi! (Sorry it took me so much time to respond to this).
Thanks for the help! I was debating adding in more, but at some point, I thought the ambiguity might go away if there were many more scenes. I'm glad that the atmosphere worked for you.
Again, I really appreciate the review and your kind thoughts! Report Review
This was great. You never really got the answers to the most important questions: Did somebody torture him into madness? Did he just go crazy? Why did he kill the man?
And, of course, the most important one:
IS HE MAD? OR IS SHE MAD?
Thank you for writing this.Author's Response: Thank you! While I know that I didn't answer the questions, I guess that was part of the ambiguity of it all. Which one of them is mad? Or maybe they're both just victims of some else that is evil. It all depends on how you read it.
Nice job picking up on those hidden questions though :)
And thank you for reading this! Report Review
Hello! This one-shot was fantastic! I loved the plot and the characters, and I think you developed them really well. Especially when Adam would have his fits, and think the bird was after him. It was really well-written, especially because stories like this have the potential to be confusing. 10/10
Cassie :)Author's Response: Hi! And thanks so much Cassie :)
I'm glad that you weren't confused by the changes in POV, because that was one worry I'd had when writing this. I really appreciate you taking the time to read this piece, and also to leave a review!
