Reviews for Love's Epiphany

Loved how you portrayed Eros - it seems just like him to think of love as a game of sorts. really enjoyed your writing style.

Only good Cupid and Psyche fic on the entire darn site. Your characterization of Eros is *stunning* - absolutely loved it. You strike a perfect balance between the boy-god who inflicts so much woe on gods and mortals on his own (or his mother's) whims and the more grown-up, so to speak, Cupid of this story. Love how you portray him as all light-heartedness and mischievousness - everything's a game - while hinting very subtly at the darker, more wild side of Eros. Your style of writing is very lovely as well; readable and engaging, with some gorgeous descriptions. I love this,

"Night rapidly falling as the sun's chariot melted towards the horizon." It's almost impossible to describe a sunset without being cliche, but you did it and huge kudos for that alone. Not to mention that you put the words 'sun' and 'chariot' in the same sentence in a Greek mythology fic! {{loves}} The description of Psyche's room, as well as Psyche herself, was also very well done.

I really wonder how different Cupid is from his fellow deities' contempt of mortals - he certainly doesn't seem to think much of them! Boy was he in for a surprise. Falling in love with a beautiful /mortal/ woman, at first sight no less...it's almost disgustingly romantic, really. Which is why I love this story so

One thing:

"And he'd learned that Eros, forever-youthful god of love, was not a force to be reckoned with." I think you meant either "a force to be reckoned with" or "not a force to be trifled with" or some variation thereof.

Overall, really great piece - thanks for sharing it with us!

When I was in seventh grade, we were studying Greek mythology and I just adored this story. I recently remembered it and found out what their names were so I've been reading their entire story, as I had only heard up till the point where Eros is seen by Psyche and he leaves her. On a whim, I decided to see if there were any good Eros x Psyche stories, and yours was the first one I've read so far. All I can say is, I will be mightily impressed if the other stories can even hold a candle to yours. It's not just well-written; the language is beautiful, and it's much deeper than the traditional "Hey, she's gorgeous! I'm going to stab myself with my own arrow so I'll love her!" Definitely well worth putting in my favorites.

Wow, great narrative! I love the way you described Eros' reaction to when he first saw Psyche.

That was beautiful, the words, the emotions, the descriptions- all of it and I loved the little jolt Eros got when he spots Psyche for the first time.

I think you're my hero. I really loved this, and I hope you can write more for them. If not, I'll keep hoping. Thank you.

Thank you.

Awesome, beautiful writing! This story is moving and flows together like a splendid ballad of love! It gives Eros lovely and loving justice and honor and is the best version of this tale I've ever read. Of course, though, I've never really cared for this tale before for its version of our Goddess Aphrodite . . . But this is truly a splendid and beautiful tale that took my breath away, made me smile, and made me chuckle. Fantastic job! You've done Eros honor, graced this miserable section with your poetical writing, and honored yourself by creating such a masterpiece!

Hey! It's a Greek Mythology fic!

Hmm, this reminded me of my Lit class last year and how my teacher just loved the subject. She made me love it too.

And this was just awesome. I loved how you added to Eros's character because in all of the stories (well the ones we read) they had almost no description on things like that and it BUGGED me. But this was fantastic, and how you changed the 'how he pricked his finger' was the best! :D

The ending was superb. :P
