Wow. Just, wow. I came here from the PPC wiki, and all I can say is that this is amazing. An old story, perhaps, but amazing, nonetheless. I certainly hope to encounter more done by this author in the future.

You are a wonderful writer. If you are looking for something to read, I would reccomend Legend Maker. Based on your writing style, I think that you will enjoy her writing.

Really great! :D

It hasn't lost the taut character of the drabble: no worries there. I especially enjoyed "You used to pretend it was only the sea", for its swiftly setting out a crucial development in Will's growth.

Great work! Yet again.
Holy crap, you really can write! :o)
Off to read even more :P

That was very good. As I read it, it felt as if I was actually there, ya know? Anyways, I thought it was a well written fic.

Phew! *sighs in relief* You scared me with your first sentence. For a lot of fics, beginning with the word "imagine" doesn't really work. (Lina Holling's melodramatic intro to her fic comes to mind.) You pulled it off splendidly, with poignant detail. Will is characterized well, and I must say that your depiction of his eyes as burning brands wonderfully (intentionally?) foreshadows his years in the forge.
I did feel that your story presented your readers with more questions than answers concerning Will's past. You give us hints and vague images of Will's parents-not a bad strategy for a memory fic-but the only character who seems to be satisfyingly fleshed out is Will himself. I'd be very interested to know your interpretation of Will's parents, especially his mother. I imagine she influenced him heavily, as the irresponsible and lax Mr. Brown isn't exactly a role model worthy of his noble-mannered apprentice.
All in all, an excellent read.

Oh Thals, the imagery in this ficlet was fantastic! In the line, "The sand rasps against your legs as you sit staring at the horizon with eyes like burning brands" jolted me with such a sudden, clear mentl image of the scene that I was taken aback, almost.
I loved this little ficlet. Good job!

Good one Thals! Great descriptions, but that part about "stifling a gasp, having looked at it clearly before shoving it into your pocket" sounded a bit raw, or rough, compared to the rest of it.
Loved the description of the father, 'half-mythical being', so sweet.
Great job! Don't blame your muse, can I borrow him/her sometimes?
