I Love these, I've read a few, the poems mainly. I just love the way of which it speaks. I truly find you an amazing writer, you'll be added as such.
I don't add many of them, not many are strong enough at this work and don't preach the way yours do. Love your stuff!

Emotional impact is pitch-perfect; you've captured the feeling with the staccato sentence structure. The word choice was strong; but I found recapitulation a little off (prolly had to do with the fact that I read it as rapscallion...XP my bad!)
You do hit your stride, I think, after E, where it just flows so painfully! Poor Annabeth!
Nice work! Sad piece of poetry!
...and you've forced me to look up "xeric". Well played, Fred.

I adore this.
I think I shall say that again for effect: I. Adore. This.
I especially like the last section, F back through M. It just really catches the emotion. And it's angst. Angst is win.
There's just one thing that puzzled me a bit-Annabeth would have joined the Hunters in this, correct?
'Twas epic. 8D

Not really my style, not because its to dark(I like dark!), but tad to obsessionist, if that's even a word.

Dark, I like it, and I like it a lot.
My favorite lines:
"Life. Ended. (Charon still hasn't gotten that raise.)"
"Hunters of Artemis. She hated herself by the time they came."
| Aanaleigh chapter 1 . 12/25/2010
It took me several minutes to realize that you started from M, but I can't see very well at this moment, so over look that. xD
Anyway, when I was reading, Annabeth didn't pop into my mind (I never looked at the top) But you did a really good job on this. I love it.

Very nice, Fred. _ It was... I don't even know how to describe it. It was... Ah, screw this. It was a great read.
XD The line about Charon was a nice, comical relief. That was great.
Well, clearly my mumbling is getting neither one of us anywhere, so...

Sigh.. It's good though. :D

First Comment _
Not holiday-esque, no, but still a pleasant read.
"Life. Ended. (Charon Still hasn't gotten that raise)" XD
Very sad, very poignant, and nicely executed. If anyone could write it like this, Fred can. )
