Reviews for Wooden Fortress
Eszther chapter 1 . 2/17/2013
Great story, really, you're a talent. (btw: I'm from Germany, so please forgive my mistakes.)

You wrote that this is an autobiographical story and I think this is obvious, because the way you put it into words ... I'm sure that you experienced this somehow - it sounds so much like 'life'.
It's a teacher/student-relationship which is realistic and doesn't deal with a forbidden, sexy affair - the aim of many teacher/student-stories.

I understand your protagonists feelings very well, because I have to confess, that I made similiar experiences.
The obsession and the simple want to just see him, doesn't matter when or where - they were things which drove me. I can imagine the smell of wood.
That the smell connects her with her treasured memories - you created a good ending, although it's not truly a happy end.

Also, you resolved the "soul mate"-plotline in a heart-tearing way. It's so frustating and yet - it's the only possibility how this could happen.

You got me dreaming and sighing again.

Great work, keep up with it!

This story has been on my favorite list for years now, and it's been quite some time since I last read it (perchance a year or so?), nevertheless, the story still has an impact on me... it isn't like the typical 'student and teacher' pairings (stories) which usually end up in romantic realtionships (or affairs). Anyways, three cheers for the story and I hope you write more.

Wow. This piece borders on pure poetry. Loved the metaphors.

But yeah, nice to know I'm not the only one missing a teacher. 'Twas bio for me. Ah, those stupid social conventions...
