hmm...i always thought a real fable involved animals. well, ccoring to the dictionary, it doesnt have to be. however, a fable does always need a moral message at the end. well, tht was really not tht important. not your best, but still better than most.

Cool! This is the kind of story that leaves you going "But what happens? Aghghghgh..." hehe. I know that's how you want it to be, and I like it! the language is very descriptive and expressive. This is definitely going on my favorites. _

*stand up and gives Pheobe a standing ovation* Dang, has anyone ever told you that you have a knack for writing. Gosh, would you like an apprentice? If you do, I volunteer! :P This was a very well written story as always. I could feel the indecisiveness in poor little Claire. How awful that must be... :(

i liked it, but not as much as i liked your other work. i thought it was an interesting idea, to have a girl torn between the flowers and the trees, but i didnt quite feel the beauty of either - didnt feel the beauty that she obviously knew. also, the end was unsatisfactory to me - not at all because it doesnt tell me what she chooses, but because i dont feel the power of her choice. maybe it's just me and i dont know much about fables, but i didnt feel like she was caught in a binding decision. it wasnt as powerful as your last works...maybe its because i went from the strong, beautiful "Butterfly" to a fable. please dont think that this CC is at all making a negative stand toward this - the writing was still beautifully mastered; however, the power behind the words lacked to me

wonderful wonderful piece. really spectacular, the message it underlines is just brilliant. really thought-provoking. the way its written is well done , too, it definately has a fairy tale and fable feel to it with the talking birds and setting. my only ideas for improvement would be not giving clair the name, as i think that would add to the fable quality, but thats a minor detail anyway. beautiful descriptions, the whole story is very vivid and just fantastically written.

Nice fable, I really liked it. The writing was great. My only suggestion is putting a different closure on it if it's a one shot. If you plan to continue it (which would be awesome!) the ending would have been great.

Ooh...are you continuing this? It's really original!) And it's a first attempt!*widens eyes* Hehe you've got lovely lovely descriptions - they really remind me of the children's books I read when I was younger. You've captured perfectly that sweet innocence in children's fables! Very interesting, very unique, a lovely read. I'd love to see you continue!)
