E! Not much I can say about this fic either...no grammar or spelling issues. But man, it's pretty grim and dark...;_; Lotta swearing too. Were you in a bad mood when writing this? ;_; Still, it's good. Harsh, but good. :thumbsup:

This was definitely not my cup of tea, so to speak. Not at all... I actually hate this type of thing.
But I read it anyway, since you only had one review, and I know you write well.
[The forest floor was covered with wet leaves and wet loam and the whole world smelled like fresh.]
I don't know if you intended this to be "smelled like fresh" or not, but it sounds awkward that way... "smelled fresh" would sound better, I think. )
I liked the first few paragraphs the best- the whole thing with the trees, and my favorite line: [Trees aren’t a metaphor and if you get a lot of them together, you don’t get an allegory you get a forest.]
Of course, the whole thing with Sain and the dry roof...stuff, I loved. And of course everyone wanted a dry roof...heck, sleeping in the cold rain would really suck.
Oh, and I can't forget about "the ghosts", because I thought that part was pretty interesting, and well thought-out. If Lyn stayed in Caelin, she'd feel as if her father disapproved, right? I thought that that was what you were trying to convey, but I wasn't positive.
If she stayed on the Plains, she'd have the disapproval of pretty much everyone else, though (but even in their disapproval of her not running Caelin, they would disapprove that she was only half-Lycian, anyway).
Well, it was interesting, to say the least. Tying the trees in the ending was a good idea. It's not a "favorite" piece of writing, but it IS written well.
Keep up the good work.

That was impressive. Your writing here was good; it felt like thoughts, or a monologue, as if it were just coming out without being edited, and as a result, it kind of... it races along and it forces you to keep up. It's spontanrous and alive. ...oh! Catcher in the Rye, that what this reminded me of. It's a great style, and admirable too.
