I can't believe I didn't review this the first time I read it. Savannah breaks my heart here; she's trying so damn hard to make sense of it and deny it all at once and that is so intensely human. I'm really glad that she didn't go alone in the end and that it might not even truly be and end but a beginning. Achingly well done, CeJay.
Author's Response: Oh thank you very much. It's a sad tale of course, but you're right, it has a somewhat happy twist to it. I supposed if I have to kill off characters, I tend to try and make them go out with a smile at least.

I have not read one of your stories before, and I have to say that I am very impressed. Beautiful character work and scene setting, a lot done with a true economy of words. I love how reality is bent and twisted and it can be difficult to tell what is really real, and what is illusion or imagination.
This is a terrific glimpse into a different world. Well done.
Author's Response: Thanks for reading, glad you enjoyed the story.

I loved this when you posted it at TBBS, and I love it here. The romance was sweet and believable, her seeming descent in to madness heartbreaking, and the twist at the end was well executed. Great stuff!
Author's Response: Thanks, kes7. I like to think that, even though it is a sad revelation, the story has somewhat of a happy ending. It's just like the song says ..
