Born 1966 in Germany, emigrated to Israel 21 years ago. Nurse by profession. My passion are cats and books (in that order exactly), and my favored pastime is writing stories ( if I'm not busy saving the cat from my kids...)
I'm really enjoying your descriptions of Snape's and Shiloh's feelings and thoughts concerning each other. Their conflict, it seems, will take some time to be solved. Very clever! Keeps us sitting on the tickling needles of curiosity and expectation. Again my full admiration for your elegant writing.
Author's Response: Thank you very much. Yes, Snape and Shiloh are both complicated people, especially when it comes to their internal side. It will take a bit for their struggle to be resolved. Thanks for the review, and I hope you keep reading!
Stumbled over Shilo's story only a few days ago, and it held me gribbed tightly since (even neglected studying for an exam...:) )
You're a wonderful writer, I love your style, imagination, the plot and of course the adorable heroe you've created!
There's only one thing I'd like to point out - as much as the many ( well written) insights and explanantions of people's motives enlighten the reader, sometimes it's a little bit too much, and the flow of the story becomes too viscous. Less is sometimes more, if you get my meaning...
but otherwise, I'm in love with your story and wait impatiently for an update!!!
Author's Response: Oh, dear, I'm sorry about that exam. Hopefully you will do all right anyways. I'm very glad you liked the story, and thanks for the advice. I tend to do it as a matter of characterization with Shiloh, since she is very over-analytical. However, I do understand that I probably take it too far. Hopefully I will have the next chapter finished soon enough.
...because inside you know that happy stories aren't the norm in our world? Because people love happy stories less, for they don't match their life experience? Because happy stories lack the depth and the realism OTWAD is so strong in? Because of any other reason? I don't know, I just think this is a cute story, while OTWAD is a good one.
Author's Response: lol, I love all your becauses. They're exactly why I don't write happy stories. I really can't relate to them, and I know no one else can. There are obvious reasons I wrote OTWAD the way it is, and simply wrote this as a What if scenario. I'm glad you thought it was cute though, which was all I meant it to be.
