That website I was talking about?
I love it even more now. Why? Well. Because of stuff like this.
Oh my gosh. This is so good and so much fun. I don't even know where to start...first of all, your grammar and spelling is just perfect. That makes me happy-happy (just reading about that drug is getting to me?!). And even though the story deals with a lot of darkness, I didn't feel too depressed when I got to the end, because the team is so competent that I was mostly just excited to see what happens next. Your characters are so unique and interesting. When I first started reading, I thought, oh no, what if this is just like Ender's Game? But this is a take I've never seen-- what happens to the child soldiers AFTER the war. So fresh. Your style is fluid and easy-to-read, without sounding juvenile. You've given the characters interesting backgrounds as new layers keep being revealed. I LOVE that Ash isn't just the typical sarcastic bad-ass, but that she has a depth that makes me really want her to be happy. The way you reveal just a tantalizing bit of backstory in italicized memories every now and then is perfect to keep me reading, hooked. (Also, I love Markal. Purple coat + unicorns + eyeliner + bad-ace fighting skills = hilarious.) This is one of those stories that, just by reading it, I see how I can improve my own work. I would not be the least bit surprised if this ended up in the top five someday soon. : )
I don't know this person, but I think I'm kind of in love.
Seriously--there hasn't been one bad review, and that is so weird! I was expecting some bad stuff...but there hasn't been any.
Someone made me a cover.
It's so totally not what I would have done, but I kind of like it.
It's really different; a little more emo than I was expecting, but still.
I am very pleased with the world right now.
