Hello, I absolutely loved it.
And if you called it a horror I would believe you because I got serious heeby-jeebies when Alex got all serious, scary and obsessive at the end. It would have been a good ending if you had Violet tell him to leave - especially at the end when everyone was saying he didn't REALLY love her.
Since it appears she's still caught up with him I hope that his feelings for her aren't as one-sided as everybody is making it out to be...

Fabulous story, darling. Love, love, loved it! Okay, I'll stop being weird.
I wasn't lying, I loved how you wrote this. You clearly were thinking through how the story was going to play out and the characters are very nicely built. :)

I honestly can't begin to describe the emotions your story brought out in me. I haven't read such a good story in months and this was a fresh of breath air. You're talented, have a great imagination and express things really well. I wait impatiently P for a sequel

You should put this story on inkpop. I found this site because of one of there writers.
| JustNotThatImportant 6/29/10 . chapter 22
Ok, just finished and this has to be one of my all time favorites that I've ever read on this site. I'm a sucker for happy endings, but (and feel free to correct me if I'm wrong) I totally got the anti-twilight vibe near the end there when you gave her the willpower to stand back and say no, to not just be a needy, clingy, die-for-you-cause-i-can't-do-anything-without-you girl.
Anyway, fantastic story, great ending, and I am SO looking forward to a sequel... I'd very much love to see Armand end up happily with Jane too ;)

Alright, I admit it, I am absolutely in love with your story so far. Being an avid fan of dreaming myself, this really hits the spot on my "wish it could be true" meter.
Your Candyland game was genius :D and I loved the descriptions; looking VERY much forward to reading more

Your opening quote...Did you read Wuthering Heights? I tried reading that book, but for some reason I couldn't. I don't know why. It was...boring. Sorry if that hurt your soul! D:
Anyways...I love the fact that I can pick up on most of the book references and humor. It's comforting and brings the act of reading your work to a more personal level.

"'Holy blood of Lestat,' Gloom murmured."
I laughed so hard when I read that!
The conversation between "It's disgusting, isn't it?" to "But organic stuff, at least." was confusing as to who was talking sometimes because you incorporated Gloom, Sweeney, and Violet all together and had some dialogue that stood hanging without knowing who said it.
The background story of how the Nightmares and Dreams came to live together was a bit confusing. I had to reread it a few times to understand it. I also feel like some things were left out. Like there should have been more information. OR maybe it's because I'm reading this at 3 in the morning...
Even so...I am enjoying this story a lot. It's very creative!
| Lady Sakaki 6/21/10 . chapter 3
Okay...I got a little confused on something here. When Violet kisses Alexander...she takes his powers away, right? But since she is a virgin, their souls are bound? I'm not quite sure how that works or (assuming Violet has a plan based on what she read from the dream book Alexander gave her) what she plans to do by taking his powers away and biding his soul to hers.
Also, I know she came across the answer to solving Alexander's entrapment in her mind within the dream book. It seemed as if she found it within a snippet or a sentence that she read. In fact, I was under the impression that she did not read the book for a long time. Hardly long enough to come across all the information she suddenly seemed to gain through her kiss/wish scene.
That scene was very well written by the way, imagery wise! :D
Another thing...Alexander is starving because Violet is not providing the fear he needs; however, he says that she is scared of him, and she acknowledges that, I believe. If that is true, then shouldn't that sustain Alexander, at least temporarily or something of the sort?
If these questions get answered later on in the story...then please...ignore all this rambling...
Aside from that, beautifully written!

"I dropped my forehead onto my desk with a quiet whimper. Everything was not back to normal. I had just fallen asleep without warning or cause. During Shakespeare! Algebra, maybe. But never on good ol' Will."
I love your writing style! It has the right amount of details that I enjoy reading!
Thanks for writing this!

Very interesting concept you have here. The dreams invented are creative...along with this Nightmare character.
I love the flow of your work...makes it an enjoyable read. Nice and easy.
"(formerly known as Creepy) Guy" I think you meant to have "Guy" within the parenthesis as well...?
"Mr.. Patterson" I believe you want to take away one of those periods...:P
Also...when she had her nightmare...what was it? I wish you had given more details to what it was. I'm sure it had something to do with fire and burning...but I was too absorbed with the effects of the dream on Violet that I didn't quit catch what exactly the nightmare was.
Well...that's my two cents...very promising first chapter thought!
