Reviews for death of me

That was so sad! You portray her feelings in such a way it feels and seems real and everything you wrote I could picture so clearly. You made her tone of voice seem so real, it was exactly how I imagined she'd feel if this situation happened.

The line about the beauty of a lake just made me think how something beautiful can be overlooked in times of trouble (when I find myself in times of trouble mother Mary comes to me... sorry, had to put it in there!) and it was just such a poignant and thought-provoking piece in general, with the last line giving it a slightly more positive spin- it shows Roisin can move on, even though it'll be tough and I doubt she'd cope. God, you've made me put so much though into this! And at half past eleven! Normally at this moment my only thoughts are 'bed' 'pillow' and occasionally 'everyone shut up!'

Thinking at this time of night really is quite dangerous... I wouldn't try it!

Checky (do you like the wiggly line? Isn't it just amazing? Yeah, I found it pretty exciting :P) xxxxx

Gemma, asdfghjkl, this is amazing. Words can't describe how amazing this is, and I think that I've lost the ability to string together a coherent sentence, and all the other things my English teacher taught me at school.

But seriously, this was brilliant. I definitely wasn't expecting it to be like this, but it's much, much better than anything I could come up with. The way you could clearly convey the emotions in your writing was excellent, and something I'm really jealous of. It was all perfectly IC, like, I could picture it all happening if that makes any sense?

I love how the subject was exactly the sort of thing that would happen to Roisin on the programme, cause she's not the luckiest of characters is she haha? I did feel really sorry for her, and I loved her more positive attitude at the end, even though it was forced. And that was really IC - forcing herself to get the fuck on with life. It was amazing.

Aaaand, I loved how you incorporated a bit of humour into this too - the line about him pissing on her from heaven made me laugh, because it's definitely the sort of thing I'd associate the characters thinking.

But seriously, this review was probably rambly on account of me being tired and typing it really fast, but this drabble was probably one of the best I've ever read. We should do more of these writing challenges - it's always fun to see the results! And this was fantastic and amazing and brilliant and more words from the 80s that I shouldn't really use. :P

So, yeah. I apologise for my weird, crazy, off-topic review! I loved this. It was just.. wow. Yeah.

I love you lots&lots&lots! xoxoxo
