Fiercely Me chapter 1 . 4/4/2011
I can't describe how this drabble makes me feel. It's almost melancholic.

I never considered how the flower would feel. It really makes you think.

I do adore this. I think I'll favorite it. Well done!

Sad, but happy at the same time. Very bittersweet.

It's strange how you managed to convey so much emotions in so few words, and I congratulate you for it. It was very well done.

Yours from the Roadhouse,

This was a really beautiful drabble. First of all, I like the concept of it; taking something familiar and then adding deeper meaning to it.

I'm not sure, however, if I like the phrase 'toiled and toiled'. Seems a little redundant to me. Perhaps you could change one of the 'toiled's for something different?

It was a nice extended metaphor - emotional too. Short, but makes quite a scene.

I actually really liked this. For drabble, it's quite... well, meaningful. Call me a bit pretentious, but I love how the daisy seems to represent this concept of love and beauty, and how it is being destroyed by an unknowing girl. The girl too seems to represent naivety, lost in day-dreams of a perfect love taken right outta a Jane Austin novel. Your story has a very... poetic feel to it, which I loved.

Anyways, really good job on this. Keep it up.

Wow, what an amazing image that last line put in my head! Great story :)

I like this drabble since you have personified the daisy well.
Daggerstone chapter 1 . 10/3/2008
Like it - would love it as a full-blown story, though I admit it's harder to write it in 100 words than 10 times as much.

Reminded me of Wilde's "The Nightingale and the Rose". We're all cruel when in love, even if unintentionally.
Caecilia chapter 1 . 10/2/2008
I really really like this. I don't know if I'd read it if you had a full story behind it, but I'm glad there's at least a drabble from it.

I love the last line. It's sad, but it paints a rather beautiful picture in my mind.

Good writing.

I started out with a "sigh...another one that starts out this way"-feeling, but showing the typical plucking-event from the stance of the flower was a nice thought, and it worked well, since I do feel sorry for the little flower.

Death to the child! :p
LeonAle chapter 1 . 9/30/2008
I enjoyed reading this; I find the ability to say so much in 100 words interesting. The daisy was worth nothing... kind of made me sad. Good work!
