Uhm. *gapes*

This is absolutely beautiful. Wow. I'm so glad I got paired with you for the Review Exchange.

I don't even know what to tell you. Gosh, I love this. I cannot believe this was written for the Stream of Consciousness Challenge - because, if I'm not mistaken, pieces for that contest aren't allowed to be edited, right? It's just what comes to your mind at the time, and you run with it? I am utterly stunned and impressed that this is what you came up with with no planning or editing.

I am seriously speechless. This is going on my favorites immediately. Heck, I'm adding you to my favorite authors as well. I've read several of your other works, and you are most definitely talented. The way you string words together is absolutely beautiful. It seems effortless, it really does. This particular piece was a perfect balance of prose and poetry. It flowed wonderfully.

I love the concept of measuring moonbeams. It's playful and magical and exactly what I picture a younger Fred and George doing. And then, of course, George can't measure them by himself. He can't seem to figure out how to navigate the world and life by himself. That was so incredibly powerful and moving. It brought tears to my eyes, especially here: 'I said that the moon is meant to light the world when the son has gone away.' I caught that 'misspelling' of sun, and then it struck me. So creative! Ah! :D

10/10. I'd give you more if I could. How the heck did you put so much meaning into something that wasn't planned? I totally envy you for that ability. Amazing.

Keep writing,
Gina

Author's Response: Aw, Gina! Thank you so much! What a wonderful review...I am so flattered!

Yep, no editing allowed, so I'm surprised it came out so coherently. The thing about me, though, is that it's hard for me to turn off my internal filter, so it probably isn't 100% pure stream of consciousness...but still, no edits were made after I finished writing!

I'm really glad you caught onto the playful aspect of measuring moonbeams -- I think you may be the first reader who's pointed that out, but it's exactly what I was thinking when I wrote it. Something very nonsensical and fanciful and twin-like. So yay! -- you pointing that out made me so happy!

I don't even know how to respond to everything else you said! I am just so seriously flattered. Thanks so much for reviewing!

xoxo
Melanie
