Great story! It was very well written. I love Luna and I can totally see her acting that way.
I liked this, you portrayed a cutter very well. And a very good job at Luna's reaction. Most people who cut aren't attention seekers. They just need to bleed, and most people don't understand that because they never had to do it. I think that you capture the build-up to a first cut, and I'd just like to comment that it takes a lot of power to make yourself bled with your fingernails. ouch
Author's Response: Thank you, I'm glad I got it right. This story is written in honor of my friend, because of what she's been through and overcome. And yes, it does take a lot of power to make yourself bleed with your fingernails. And it does hurt. I have scars. (though I've never actually cut myself). But thanks for the review! I'm glad you liked it. ~megan~
Really good story here. It deals with a deep and hard issue...very realistically. I do think that it ended a bit quickly, but with Luna, that is possible.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! ~megan~
oh, i almost forgot. you write very well. the way you portrayed everything was so realistic. the attention to detail was very good. and sorry about this review being in 2 pieces, its just that the story gave me a bit to think about. and while i dont typically like the dark stuff that this story entails, i find myself looking forward to the rest of it.
Author's Response: Tehee, hello again. And thank you ;-) ~megan~
wow. this is some powerful stuff. you know, i generally thought that people who cut themselves are crazy or attention-seekers or something like that, but i'm not entirely sure now. this really broadened my perspective on things, i think. i still dont think its a healthy thing to do, but i dont think i'll be judging anyone anymore. as for me, however, i find that writing really helps get some things out, and when i read my stuff over again later, i find it charged with emotion, proving that i wasn't numb.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! You know, I didn't think I would ever be answering reviews for this story. It took me seven tries to get it up! I'm still mentally *squeeee!!!!!!*ing. Yeah, I used to think the same thing about cutters, but I had a friend who did it, and she's actually very normal, aside from being overly random and spazzy sometimes. But thanks for the review. *huggles* ~megan~
