Very Niiice!

Colin, That Scoundral!

Here I was thinking that he was a nice young lad! Oh, how I was wrong!

 

 



Author's Response: Thank you! Yeah, Colin's a bloody menace, isn't he? My friend wants me to write him in a better light, so I'm working on a good storyline to include him as a nice guy. Thanks for reviewing!

Wow! I love this story. My nose was an inch from the screen the whole time I was reading it. You write with such good word flow it was easy to get involved in it. Can't wait to read more!

Great Job!

What a funny and clever piece of writing. I really enjoyed reading this. Being a hopeless romantic, it was such fun reading and I was giggling my little heart out the whole time!

Thanks for a great read!

Monsters

What haunts you?”

Not all monsters live in storybooks. Some are very real, and some can even dwell in our minds.

This story is very well written. I had a sort of stretched feeling throughout the whole thing. I think you really did a good job at describing what an asylum is like. The patients were very realistic and the feeling of dread lingereing everywhere was almost tangible.

I feel very... jittery now. Haha. You did a very good job!




Chapter 1: Monsters
Crystal Fantasy by LadyMortis [Young Teen]
starstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 5]
Feature

Sometimes, when I close my eyes, I am in another place, another time; a place where the constant hardships of life cannot interrupt the calm serenity of my fantasy.

A woman, suffering the many hardships of life, has become cynical of humanity and all it entails. Caught in the endless terrors the world seems to conjure, she is beginning to lose faith in man. Then she meets Keiran.

"Your tears bring hope that one day, enough tears will have been shed to end this seeming eternal war"

Keiran, the wind sage of Utopia, is a figment of her imagination. Yet as their relationship strengthens and grows, she begins to wonder where the line is that seperates reality and fantasy and if it can be blurred until they are one and the same.

To start, I want to say that this fic was terrific. It gives me a sort of chill thinking about the "underdwellers". I really loved it and I actually kind of wish I was an -forgive me- underdweller. It's a little morbid but I think I could handle the life style. Haha.

 Anyway, my point being, I thought that it was very well written and it kept me interested from start to finish!

Recently, I've been really obsessed with biblical things. Angels, demons, good and evil.

I remember reading this quite a while ago, but at that point I didn't really have that appreciation for this sort of idea.

I personally love this. I love that you refer to the devil as Lucifer Morningstar. It just connects Lucifer to God more. He was once a child of God as well, and using his name like that just makes it easier to see that past. Plus, I just love 'Morningstar'. It sounds so poetic and tragic when applied to Lucifer and his ultimate fall.

Loved it! (I don't even know if anyone gets on here anymore!! haha)




Chapter 1: Angel of Silence
Humans tend to see the world in terms of black and white, dark and light. In the cold of autumn, twelve-year-old Simon must learn to get past that blindness and face his fears the hard way.
