Reviews for The Woods
Au Printemps chapter 1 . 4/16/2007
Blue jay is not capitalized (I'm pretty sure).

Beautiful. You really brought me there; the descriptions appealed to all of my senses, and I got caught up in the beauty of the woods and your expectancy. "He blinks pebble dark eyes nervously." Pebble dark eyes. A lovely tone of matter-of-fact lyricism to all of this piece of writing.

Hey! I loved this when you first posted it, and it's even better the second time around :) I love your writing!

This description reminded me a little of my own home that lies deep and alone in the woods. It was descriptive, as you said it would be, and very good at that. It brought vividly to mind many adventures I have had... your brief mention of deer brings recollections of following their trails. I very much enjoyed this little work.

woah...It's really...there isn't quite a word for it. It reminds me of the woods behind my mom's and dad's lake cabin...Couple years ago I went hiking there with my grandma to look for mushrooms...most of them were posionous though so we didn't dare bring any back...but it was so pretty...there's so many trails that just branch off into nothingness...Civilization doesn't seem to's a bit of the old world still perserved...and it's breathtaking. You reminded me of that. It's a lovely peice.

The writing style is ok...I personally would've written it in past tense instead of present..but that just because I'm strange. But it works for you and it's really good. I like it.

This is amazing! I love the beautiful imagery. It reminds me of all the years I spent roaming around in the woods as a young child ::sigh:: Thank you so much for reminding me of all those happy times!

Wow. This sounds like a beautiful place. Near my Dad's house, where I grew up, there used to be this beautiful grove of trees that looked like it was grown for Dwarves or Hobbits. Andmost of the trees grew in such a way that you could comfortably sit on the small chair that their trunks made. Not long ago it was burned down by some drunk college students and I had almost forgotten it, but this fic really reminded me of it for some reason. I know I have been scum about reviewing "The Faerie Goblet," but I've loved it thus far and can't wait to see more.

hmmm... just reading this makes me feel peacefull. I love to walk, especially in the forest and this sounds like something straight out of tolkein, although there is more to it than his discriptions of forests. when reading it i can really imagine I'm there. you've obviously put alot of effort into writing this and i think it was worth it.

Absolutely lovely imagery. Your reprise of "anything can happen in this forest" along with the detail doen't make the reader doubt it for a second. Keep writing.
