Wow, I loved it. You have created quite the fantastic story. Love the characters and decisions you have made. I would absolutely love to read a sequel where we see the two of them make a new life together, whether in a red skin, white skin, or mixed skin community, or perpetually nomadic. Multiple different plot possibilities, but I'd just love to read more about them.
As is, this story seems pretty darn perfect. The pacing, point of view choices, the way they communicate and the way she turns into a fighter and develops her mind - it works so well.
Thank you so much for posting, I very much enjoyed the read.

Oh goodness. Poor Red. Perhaps because of her amnesia and inability to understand his language, her character seems so young to me while Red comes off as a full grown man. I honestly don't mind if there is, but is there a large age gap? Again, poor Red! I laughed when she pulled his smile down but that's actually pretty sad.

I must say I'm really excited for this!
I just started this about five minutes ago and I haven't read your "Ocean on Fire" yet (but I will when I've finished this). I'm not even a twelfth done the second chapter but I felt the need to write a review.
From what little I've read of this, I can tell this is my kind of story. The statement is a little frightening, considering all I've read is the main female drowning, getting beaten up and hating life and the male character missing part, if not all of his little finger! I have recently gotten into stories of pain and tragedy. "Scorpion and Sandman" seems right up my alley! (Pardon the redundancy).
I look forward to reading your NaNo. Congratulations on your outstanding work!
PS: Compliments may not be too impressive coming from me but I really mean them. :)

I would read this over and over and over again.
Geez, it's that addicting.
Thanks for bringing it to fictionpress.

I love this story!
How can it be over.
I'm so glad that they are finally together and that they are going to have a baby.
Your wording and transitions were very good. Umm... yea the writing itself was good.
I wish that they were able to communicate with words but no words are needed in their relationship...
She has an almost childlike innocence... she's intelligent yet she seems so... well clueless I suppose.
I would love to see them evolve as characters and as a couple...
This is a really good story :)

This story sounds very interesting.
It caught my attention right away and made me want to continue reading to figure out who this woman was.
The image of skinning human beings and using their skin for a book cover is very disturbing but then again it adds a eery mood to the story.

NO! IT CAN'T STOP HERE! This was really good. I was kinda skeptical at first - the summary wasn't very appealing, but i decided to give it a try, and i am really glad i did. There were literlly NO mistakes in grammer that i cought and usually i am a shark for grammer mistakes. This was really good. Although i wish that it hadn't ended so abruptly. Very well written!

This is turning out really weel. I love your style. Its very wordy- great vocab, an di love that in an author. I can't wait to read the next chapter, but sadly, i have to sleep. I guess thats kinda important every now and then. Good job. :)

Aw, that is the best ending!
It was sort of confusing at first when it switched Point of Views, but it was fine near the end :)

Great story. Thanks for writing it and bringin' it to fictionpress. Do you know fighting styles or moves, because your knowledge seemed to be exemplified here. I thought the climax in the story would be Red pairing with Quina but you dragged out the story, having them separated, which in turn was wonderful for the plot as well. I really liked how underneath it all, this was another interracial fic (I don't often get to read many of those) and how it seemed you proved that love can be expressed past words, ect. And, the story was not mushy, not like a cliche chick flick with the guy bringing the girl to the movies. Twas awesomely-fantasmal I'd have to say. Thanks for sating my fictionpress hunger. :)
