Dear wonderful artist,
We found your masterpiece of a story to be the most inspiring work of prose since My Immortal. Our first encounter with this magnificent story was at a dramatic reading held at a convention at 1:30 in the morning. As you could imagine, the time deeply affected the depth in which our souls received the powerful life messages held within these brilliant words. Because we first heard this as a dramatic reading, we could not fully appreciate its obviously creative manners of grammar and spelling. So we ventured out to find this glorious work of art ourselves. We now completely understand why you ripped the apostrophe and comma key out of your keyboard (which we find extremely impressive seeing as your " key is the same as your ' key). Well played.
We were immediately hooked from the first sentence when we discovered not only were Rain Strife and Cloud Strife were brothers, but they were born in the same city that coincidentally contained their name! Not only that, but they had the same parents! We were shocked; we never would have guessed! When he stayed home after staying, we were moved at his loyalty. We felt the intensity of his leaving with such a simple and yet powerful sentence. Just the words "and so he went" evoked such a strong sense of his leaving." Rain Strife traveled fast to where loud sounds come from to help them out there." Need we say more?
The valiant way in which Rain Strife bandaided those hurted people really gave the reader a sense of Rain Strife's inner compassion. And your sudden switch of tenses really displayed your diversity as a writer.
In the following paragraph, we adore your use of "and" in all of its splendor, as you decided before writing this to discard your comma key to prevent any typical, mainstream use of this overrated symbol. We found the combination of dialogue sentences (without that bothersome . mind you) to be a wise move in comprehensibility. As the dialogue is all in one sentence, we can easily distinguish the fact that the town's people are talking to one Rain Strife and not some other Rain Strife who could be in the vicinity. We also deeply enjoyed your repetition of the phrase "he went" as it added to the urgency of the scene. While thoroughly enjoying your reference to one of Miyazaki's classics, your use of onomatopoeia in ALL CAPS brought life to the battle scene. The simile that compared the first known monster to something that does not move or exist (for that matter) was a pleasant display of your creativity. The long existence of zombies is too mundane for a person of Rain Strife's caliber.
Now, when we first heard of this beautiful art form called the "Wind Dance", we were mesmerized by its title. But, soon after, by reading the actual text, we discovered it was not the wind dance at all, but the "Win Dance". At first, we were a little disappointed; our minds imagined a graceful swirl of arms and legs in a tornado fashion calling upon the Wind Gods to make Rain Strife go faster. But, we have now become accustomed to the "Win Dance" in all of its glory, and often partake in its festivities when we too defeat a tree with fire-breathing abilities and wings, or when a quarter is found under the couch.
On a different note, we are a bit curious as to whom this "sky" person is? Why is Rain Strife shouting at this person? Could she be a long lost lover of Rain Strife's? The mother of his child perhaps? We do believe a side story is in order.
Our favorite character had to have been the ever-so-mysterious black guy. We felt his skin color added a much needed variety to the story, avoiding any comments of race discrimination and any future legality issues concerning Jessie Jackson as well. His lack of name made him even more alluring as a character, and we wanted to know more. We appreciate the detailed description of his gun hands, his past, and his battle scenes. And we were greatly moved at his compassion for Rain Strife's story, which was oddly similar to his own. Are they brothers perhaps? Another ingenious move, no doubt.
The final scene in which Rain Strife and Black Guy discover that an important city was on fire was really a dramatic and conceptual plot twist, putting an emphasis on the importance of that city and the fact that it was on fire. The vagueness of this city and the rest of the story left quite a lot of room for the imagination of the reader, allowing said person to make the story his own, drawing personal ties that could heavily relate to the audience.
Overall, you're a genius and we love you.
to be continued...?
