I first read this story ages ago, but recently re-watched the movie and went hunting for it again. It is *still* fascinating. I'm favoriting it, and it seems poor manners to favorite without a review, so here is a review, a few years late.
This may have been experimenting, but it is far more successful than a lot of traditional fics. The plot that is described here would have been good on its own; you, however, fractured and reassembled that plot into an experience that is far more than the sum of its one-sentence parts. The method evokes the Mirror world of the movie in the events and the structure that presents them. It is pretty heady stuff, to me.
On a simpler level, and I don't think any of these sentences *didn't* work. There are a few that are outstanding, though. Some do a great job capturing the voices (23 Question, 35 Sarcasm). Some have very strong imagery (10 Weddings, 50 Defeat). Some are dramatic (16 Breaking) and some are simply amusing (34 Serenade).
To sum up? GOOD WORK :D

dear BAD FAERY, i really liked this! it was done amazingly well and i got a clear feel of the characters and the story. one thing that confused me a bit though was the placement of sentences. it would be much easier to understand if they were placed chronologically. or was that a part of the art? is there a meaning to there placement? please get back to me my email is . id really love to know.

This so good!
It's got bittersweet romance and humour, perfect combination!
I love sentence number 5, the end had me in stitches!

Well written and intriguing. I love how each sentence tells a story.

Interesting concept, though slightly hard to follow. I have the strangest feeling that were this made into a short film, using the exact same concept as you did - short snippets of action - it would make much more sense.
So I'm gonna let you get on that. _

That was fascinating. And I want you to understand that the word 'fascinating' is not one i throw around. And I didn't notice any sentences that 'didn't work'.
I've never seen or heard of a format like this before, and I enjoyed the way it gives you the shape of the story after the movie. It leads you to visualize the bridging scenes, and allows you to make it as elaborate or direct as you wish.
Not to mention it's a really satisfying story, too. Nicely ;)

Brilliant! Superb! A fantastic rendition of Neil Gaiman's work-not only do you do him credit in your artfully-crafted (semicolon-smattered) single-sentence drabbles, but you've edited in just the right amount of romance that us Valentine x Helena fans all crave.
You are a gift among writers, much like Gaiman himself!

That. Was. Awesome. I think I read this once before, and I can't remember for the life of me why I didn't review then. It was absolutely brilliant-you ought to write more MirrorMask stories. You captured the erratic feel of it beautifully, and I especially loved the differences between Val and Valentine.
Brilliant. Simply brilliant.
I think numbers 11, 19, 35, 44, and 47 were my favorites, although I did like them all pretty equally.

well, they were good, but perhaps next time you can put them into story order? I've seen it done before and would make it easier to understand

:D I like this SO SO much... I love it in fact. Anyway I can convince you to take the story thats in it and actually write it as such? The plot you've got going would be great for a long story. :D

now this was amazing. I don't know if it was a oneshot or not, but it's really good. If you want to add more I would second and third the motion.

No fair, it would take me hours to unravel the sequence, ah, but then it might be well worth the time. I've never read anything like this, and I must say I am very impressed.
