STOP WRITING SUCH GOOD STORIES.
No, disregard the above. In fact, flip it on its head - do just the opposite. NEVER stop writing such good stories. Do you hear me, Sarah??
I have often wondered the backstory of the tragedy behind the Grey Lady and the Bloody Baron, but for some reason I have never quite found a fic that satiates my curiosity. The wait is over, I am most happy to say, because this seems to me exactly the sort of thing that might have happened. ^^ All your characters - Helena and John and even the woman who bought the corset - were so real, as if they had actually lived. And your imagery made me drool! ^_^
I can so see this doing well in the duel, and I have a feeling that it will do VERY well! =] Jealous of your amazing talents, as always, and the ability to keep me coming back to read your beautiful and awe-inspiring stories. That last line from Helena just hits home - it was GORGEOUS.
As always, Sarah, you've gone above and beyond. I honestly and truly loved this story!Author's Response: Once again, your wonderful reviews have made me so incoherent that I am forced to communicate via poetry:
My left shoe is blue
I can't say that I've ever had fleas
A fingerless man yodels "moo!"
I like lasagna with extra cheese
There you have it, Jane. This is what you have reduced me to.
:) Thank you for constantly making my day. Report Review
One word . . . wow.
That was one of the best one shots I have ever read.
Your writing is amazing.
I love the way you describe things.
'in the tiny village nestled down in a ring of purple hills' I loved that sentence, I could just picture a quaint little village.
Your characterization of Helena is perfect. Exactly how I would have imagined she'd be. All the way through she was reminding herself that she was above everyone else.
I particularly liked the part where you wrote about her having to work for what was good about her, unlike Rowena who in who it occurred naturally. I thought this was interesting because most people brag about natural talent whereas Helena is proud that she has to claw to her attributes.
It was an excellent depiction of how they both ended up being ghosts. I thought it was perfect that it should happen because she was being cruel to him and taunting him.
The last line was just paragraph was just amazing. I could just imagine her saying 'I hope you like wearing chains' in such a spiteful and cruel way, with such a smug look on her face.
Brilliant entry for the Writer's Duel and the category. I hope it does well, it deserves to!
10/10 and adding to my favourites :)Author's Response: Good luck to you, too! You certainly don't need it - your entry is fantastic.
Thank you so much for this wonderful review. I am really honored that you liked it enough to add to your favorites. I just...gahh...I can't form a coherent response. I'm in happy land right now. So I'll just give up and shower you with virtual cookies.

Schwoah...I finished reading this and found I wasn't breathing. EXCELLENT story! Really!Author's Response: Thank you! ^_^ Report Review
Wow, I am a bit freaked out by the synchronisation of our brain waves - I wrote a one-shot for the mother and you wrote a one-shot for the daughter. Lol. :D
Anyway. I think your story is very haunting. I love the way you showed how Helena couldn't bear to wear the diadem. Also, how she relished in her spite till the very end. It's very difficult to describe such an ugly flawed human being and you've done it perfectly. And the ending sentence - perfect on both a literal and symbolic level. Awesomely amazing one-shot. 10/10Author's Response: 10/10! *blushes* You flatter me! XD
I saw your one-shot about Rowena and my jaw dropped. Definite twin brain wave action going on. Yay for the Ravenclaw girls!
