Earned it. Undoubtedly earned that ending. I love circular endings and really, this story was pure genius. Extremely well written and well planned, I felt like there was meaning behind every word... and I'm not entirely sure what exactly defines good writing, but I would think making every word count, and I mean absolutely every word, well, I think that makes your story great writing. Good teamwork, this was just fantastic.

Yeah, I don't know if it's the genre or what, but the only thing that comes to mind after I finish each of these chapters is: Brilliant, Brilliant, Brilliant.

Not to gush or anything, but I absolutely love stories like this, and it's so, so very well written, both POVs... and the characters are all so believable and perfect. And I love stories where the murderer gets murdered, not because of the whole vengeance aspect, but I like empathizing with the evil characters. (Though I wonder if this paints a dangerously vision of the real world, encouraging people to empathize with criminals). Anyway, very well done.

Haven't read the whole chapter yet, but of course I love it so far, I'm just interested in your theory of future predictions at the moment... Have you ever heard of a show called Person of Interest? You can find it online, it's American, and the Michael Corner in this story is quite similar to Mr. Finch in PoI. Anyway, in the show, Mr. Finch develops an algorithm to predict crimes, and his algorithm was also based on feeding statistical abstractions of non-deterministic events (observed by all the infinitely many security cameras and satellites that are tracking our every move ;)) which he feeds into a highly complex stochastic process, much like the magical Michael Corner. So, of course I couldn't focus on reading anymore til I'd written my review saying how fantastic it is you have somehow, possibly unintentionally, combined one of my favorite shows with my favorite imaginary world. And the point of all this, of course, is just to say thanks. So, ahem, thanks for that.

Original and fascinating. Thank you.

Great story! The change between authors/pov was interesting and made it all the more real. Wow!
| Lilyp chapter 7 . 9/12/2011
Fantastic. Very good chapter, particular the end. But I must say that I understand Marley, although what she did is really unspeakable.
| sbmcneil chapter 7 . 9/12/2011
Excellent ending. Poor Marley - that would be a horrible truth to live with, no wonder she wanted to forget. A very thought provoking story.

This is scary good!
| Guest chapter 7 . 9/10/2011
Wow! That was a powerful chapter. Really nicely done! I didn't expect that rememberall twist. I knew something was up with it, but that? No way. Super chapter!

Wow! That was quite the ending! This was a great suspense story. I did not know the identity of the original murderer until the very end! That's tough to do. I have to say that I am keen to learn more about Michael Corner. You really got me to care about him... Also, you sent me to the dictionary two times! One or the other of you must be studying for the Graduate Record Exam, or is that a North American thing? Fantastic work! Kudos to both of you. Thanks for writing!

Wow, what an ending! Great story.
| Arnel 63 chapter 7 . 9/9/2011
A very suspenseful end to a very well-written story. I have mixed feeling about what Marley did and why she ended her life, but if she was tortured enough to use potions to forget who really killed her sister, even if it was an accident, then maybe she was justified in taking her own life as she had the others'.
My other thoughts are for Michael and I sincerely hope he'll be all right after Marley's confession. He deserves happiness and I hope he finds it somewhere soon.
| Stephanie O chapter 7 . 9/9/2011
Great wrap-up to the story! That would do it, finally realizing that SHE was the one to have killed her sister accidentally. I'd guess seeing Marley die after poisoning herself left Michael & her friend/neighbor with nightmares for a long time to come! This was such a great mystery, and very intriguing! :)

Wow that was quite a chilling story. I really hope Michael manages to find some peace in his life. Look forward to your future stories and updates.
