Someone chapter 1 . 6/4/2013
It seems to me that Lili is as sane as a damane can manage. She isn't broken yet and probably won't break for a long time. If she were to be freed she would adapt fairly quickly. So one can find a hopeful silverline in this nice sad fic.

being a damane sucks even more than being ME! you have a singular skill for writing poetic prose without losing sight of the fact that you are telling a story. I have just read half the tales on this site & am feeling a bit dazed... yours are the best I have seen so far. write more! please. Elaida, maybe?

I think little Lili is slightly insane. But who wouldn't be? For someone who isn't native to Seanchan, this is probably the only way to survive.

Your story is enteresting. I've often wondered if damane think to themselves in the first person. I guess it depends. Great job.

Two words only

Darkly Fitting.

The return review...

Yes, this is good! I am impressed. I don't really hate the Seanchan, just think they are a bit...misguided?

Aw heck, the sul'dam/damane thing is icky. Very nice, dear. *applause*

That was very weird. I don't get it.
free2thamax chapter 1 . 11/14/2005
Aw, that was so sad. I loved it, though. ;) It really showed the hopelessness and helplessness of a damane. That was so emotional without being sappy, sad without being overdone. Keep it up!
MuddyAstronaut chapter 1 . 9/19/2005
That was absolutely great! It was really well written with some great insight into how a mainland caught Damane might feel. I really enjoyed reading it. Hope to see more stories from you soon!

As usual I am greatly impressed.

I loved the prose in this - beautiful but incredibly sorrowful, a perfect echo to our poor protagonist.

The relationship between sul'dam and damane is brilliantly rendered here; it illstrates that brutality doesn't have to be dealt with fists. The narrator's quiet humiliation at being another's plaything is subtle and thought-provoking.

And the end? I loved the rag-doll and the incredibly sinister image of childhood innocence bound with choking twine.

I think this is your best piece yet, better even than 'Protect and Serve' (which I love).

Congrats on another job well done.
