I loved it. Finding good witch stories these days is rarer than green diamonds.
Thank you for writing such a lovely piece- it was unique, to the point, and sweet. I found myself desperately hoping you wouldn't end it in a sad way about halfway through and I'm glad you didn't.
I know you ended the piece but it does have potential for further exploration..? It is beautiful the way it is, however, and I have no business poking my nose in your writing workload anyhow
Thank you- and I just read your profile; I hope you're doing alright.. I know how hard depression can be and how much it affects both the individual and everyone around them- even if I've only experienced it indirectly. Couple that with chronic pain and I really feel for you.. On a brighter note, you're goddamn Batman. :) Cheers.

Awesome concept, awesome story. I'd say it was a little fast-paced, but hell, it's s'posed to be a one-shot. I especially liked the gutter witch concept, and Miki is a sweetheart. A really fantastic read. )

What a unique story! This was great, had the fantasy and the romance and the happy ending!
What a great character you built with so few words.

I absolutely loved this story! The thing I like most is actually how you explained how a ghost can help the living. Also quite liked the small details like how Miki has shiny things in his belt and how jumpy Jule is. Thanks for a great read :)

This was such a special story to read. I liked the quirkyness of the supernatural factor and the closeness of the two main characters. This is one of the stories I want to go back to and reread.

What a sweet story, it made my day.

Wow, the ghostie sex WAS strangely hot... enough so that it was kind of disappointing when Miki got his body back .-.

Beautiful story. I loved reading it. Is this short part of a larger group of writing? The setting is fascinating. Very interesting concept. Also, so glad to see some new work from my favorite fictionpress author.
| Caisele chapter 1 . 11/3/2010
I like the way you characterize them. It's really different reading slash from a guy when the ones I usually read are by girls.
Please write more :)

Fantastic! I could easily read a book set in this universe. Did not see the twist coming. The boys are so sweet and I love the happy ending. Thank you, really enjoyed it.

I love all your work—like creepy stalker style— but this particular piece really blew me away. I think one of the things I really admire in your characters is the use of dialect to help shape their personalities, and in this story in particular (although in Just Drive the Car too) it works so well.
There were just so many lovely little parts to this. That Julin can weep for someone because no one else will one moment, and then throw their body back in the river to be eaten by crawfish because that is how things work—makes him both sensitive and pragmatic all at once— pure awesome. Thanks for posting such a beautiful piece on Halloween no less!

Wow I love this story! Very well written and refreshing. I read it over 3 times in a row before writing this review XD
Would love to read more

lovely lovely lovely!
i can't tell you how thrilled i was to see that you had posted a new story and, on top of that, that it was a halloweeny one-shot. this is a pretty interesting world you've given us a glimpse into. and jule and miki are such sweethearts.
i just really, really enjoyed this; thanks! :)
