Greyella chapter 1 . 5/15/2013
Haunting in its misery.
Cattyline chapter 1 . 12/30/2011
My goodness, this is chilling. So accurate, I bet Sondheim himself would have used this scene had you sent it to him. I think your portrayal of Mrs. Lovett is interesting, too: how she doesn't know how to help. It's almost foreshadowing to how she can't help Lucy when she tries to kill herself or she can't help Mr. Todd when he's grieving over Lucy (well, that's how I see it; I'm not sure if you intended it to be that way). In any case, I love it.

Very well written! Nicely done. It suggests how Lucy would've become nearly insane to the point of drinking arsenic. Great job!
CaptainElf chapter 1 . 11/11/2011
It was nice.

Lucy's lost her mentality here, with the laughing and sobbing. It was a nice one-shot.

Great job.

What a terrific oneshot! I haven't read one this good in a while. It's so harrowing in so few words.
