rust phoenix chapter 1 . 3/17/2008
Wow. I love this. I don't know what I can say that hasn't already been said. The imagery and the words you use fit together so well, the surreal/raw combination is beautiful.

Added to favorites.

the naked civil servant chapter 1 . 3/9/2008
wow.

in a word.

in several more words : this is AMAZING. i shall hurl quotes back at you across cyberspace in the hope of impressing the full extent of your genius upon you :

"there is an arch of wishes

standing still"

"In the aftermath, we are left

shocked and stripped

of everything we ever knew"

it's so beautiful. like this huge, gaping loss that everyone is tiptoeing round, trying to put behind them. ah...

thanks for your review, also! it made me very happy xx

Ouch.

Great imagery here:

"where our dreams collided

and killed themselves."

Love those lines *so* much, especially how you split them up like you did. Makes everything sound like this disastrous collision-like, good idea at the time, bad idea later, maybe? Perhaps I'm just reading that because that's how it ties into my own experiences, though.
