RSF love chapter 1 . 8/26/2012
This is really sad but romantic at the same time. The descriptions of the beach are gorgeous. It's a very poetic piece, the words have a lilting quality, and the three lines make a sort of echo - if that makes any sense. It's a really mysterious piece, I love what you can gauge about their characters from the words. It's a really perfect length for a drabble, too. It makes me really curious, haha. Brilliantly written, the imagery was amazing. xxx

This is a beautiful little drabble, and I really liked it. Your text makes me feel like this is poetic, it probably is. :D It was a beautiful story, and I liked your use of repetition.

This is so beautiful, Rae. Your images are wonderful, and I love all the description throughout of the beach, that was especially gorgeous. I liked the three lines and how they're sort of like an introduction, then a twist, then a conclusion. And it was so heartbreaking that Lysander had to turn his back on Dom, aww. Keep writing!
Macbeth Mouse chapter 1 . 12/23/2011
This is sad, and so romantic. I wonder why it is they can't be together, though? Perhaps I'm just dull, and didn't understand the meaning.

But this is really great, just like what I've read before! I love the visualisations you put into my head; it really paints the picture of desperation.

Really really nice! I loved this — the characterisation of their relationship was very believable and moving. Great job, keep writing :)
felines chapter 1 . 12/3/2011
I love how you have those three lines! Especially the last one - that line just seemed to me like some kind of finale.

suffocating lies chapter 1 . 12/1/2011
I reallyreally liked this. I like the how other members of Dominique's family is incorperated into this story as well as the last line.

Thanks for the dedication and sorry for the late review!

shimmeringbubbles chapter 1 . 11/29/2011
except the words are all clumped together a bit, and it's just me, but I find it harder to read like that.

But overall a good effort :D
