I think storytelling is an art. Like all art there is different kinds. You really painted a picture with your words to make a beautiful, lovely story! Thank you!
this is awesome, beautifully touching , so intimate that its carved onto the skin , I adored it , the vocabulary was awesome.
Author's Response: Wow... I'm stunned. Thank you so much. *grins* I, just, I'm really grateful. *hugs*
really good story and really original but waht does it have to do with harry potter? but its still really good
Author's Response: Not much, which is nice. That's the way a lot of my writing is: I set it in the world of Harry Potter, you know, with the magic and all, but I use my own characters. It was a plot bunny that wouldn't go away. As I am working on my own fiction, your comment really pleased me.
Thank you for the review. =)
Happy New Year!
that was an amazingly beautiful story, you are an awesome author
Author's Response: Aw, thank you. You really made my morning. *hugs*
I'm so glad you enjoyed it; that's one of the best compliments you could give me.
Two of the voices–a kind, old man, a motherly, elderly woman–comforted her, embraced her, touched her sightless eyes with cold, windy fingertips, and as the tears–brought forth by raw emotion as much as by the whip of the cold air–started to flow down her cheeks, the shadowy veil of blindness lifted momentarily from her eyes, and Layne saw a man and a woman, shadowy hands linked together, and they smiled and it was with Layne's mouth and Layne's eyes. And just before the curtain fell once more, the old woman blew her a kiss, and the man smiled and held out his hand, and there in his palm lay a wand.
I absolutely ADORED that! This was such a descriptive and original story. I can't find anything to criticize. I really, really loved. Layne is such a cute, heartwarming character and the descriptions of all her other senses were fantastic.
I happen to be half blind (I have toxoplasmos in my left eye), but all of my other senses seem to be even worse than my eyes. :(
Author's Response: *hugs* Thank you, Mia. I'm so sorry that you have toxoplasmos; it has to be tough. *squishes*
I hope, though, that this was believable for you. If anything, that's my wish: to make the stories "real" to the reader. I hope I was able to do that. =)
Once again, thank you so much. Cheers!
Wow Julia... That was incredible! No wonder you won the challenge. Great Job!!!
Like Leah said, it made me want to be blind, just to be able to experience what Layne experienced...
Author's Response: *giggles* Thanks, Samarie. I've yet to go read yours, but I'm definitely going to do so. =)
And I'm thrilled that it made you "feel..." That's my job. *grins*
that was a beautiful story

Author's Response: Thank you very much, Chloe. I enjoyed writing it. =)
