Wow. Just... wow. I'm speechless. This is amazing. You're so poetic, and it's lovely. Sort of... bittersweet.

Oh gosh... that was grim. You rarely see an extended metaphor carried out to tell such a large story. I liked the slightly poetic language. Really good!

At first, I didn't understand that this is about Igris and I thought this was really sad and really beautiful. Then I realised it and I cried. Poor Igris. You really did a wonderful job writing this.

:o...Igris...oh, poor Igris...I cried at 'that lifeless piece of white was the first friend I ever had.'...he really is the Woobie.

It's cool on how you compared the tribute's deaths to candles. It works. Verily.

Oh, Journey ... I'm speechless.

That was beautiful. How can you say you're not a good writer when you weave stuff like this? The intricate emotions, the candle symbolism, the obvious allusions to Horrible (it was wonderful reading Igris' POV. I never knew he felt so bad about China the whole time. And I knew, deep down, that he left because he couldn't bear to watch her die! Aww, Igris, you sweetie :'D) ... it was phenomenal.

Oho, and I like how you've connected it to our Shakespeare discussions on the forum. Well, not really, since that was Hamlet and this is Macbeth, but still ... epic.

That is now a verb (well, it already was, but now it refers to me)
