  1. Hey there,
    I already wrote you a lengthy review (or rather rave) for this particular story, so you know how much I love it. I just want to use the opportunity to point out that I re-read it at least once a year and it’s a go-to comfort story that I feel like reading when I’m upset. It’s the atmospthere, the unexpected peacefulness and closeness of Hekate and Cal while they’re in the middle of a war, the superb mixture of worldbuilding, plot and characterization, which I don’t see very often in short stories. It’s just a pleasure to read every single time. Look what you did there! 🙂

    1. I’m a little bit in love with you for telling me that. <3

      I love fantasy short stories, exactly because they have to pack a punch in terms of world building. When I was a child, I devoured all short story anthologies published/assembled by Marion Zimmer Bradley. They're a bitch to get edited though. ^^ You try and explain to an editor that no, you can't use a different plural for Fian / Fianna because it's an actual existing word from lore. :p

  2. Hello there I am so grateful I found your site, I really found
    you by error, while I was looking on Askjeeve for something else,
    Anyways I am here now and would just like to say thank you
    for a tremendous post and a all round enjoyable blog
    (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to read it all at the moment but
    I have book-marked it and also added your RSS feeds,
    so when I have time I will be back to read a great deal more,
    Please do keep up the awesome job.
