I. Love. This. Story! SPOILERS
[SPOILERS IN MY REVIEW]
Read the story now
Off the bat, I am SOOO happy to see a character named Blithe! My best friend’s name is Blythe and it makes me super giddy to see her name since it’s so rare. I had to send a picture to show her.
Oh, I love your vocabulary SOOO MUCH! So beautiful how you describe the characters in the beginning. For some reason my mind was flowing, like wind or like someone dancing eloquently while reading your story, the words were just so pretty. “But she was vinegar, bitter and acerbic.” Oh, I love it so much.
The characterization is phenomenal. It’s so nice to see such an authentic, pure relationship between sisters. And it’s nice that they’re self aware and aware of their surroundings as well, it’s refreshing.
[ It’s nice to see the older sister struggling with how she feels. At first she wishes her little sister will never be tamed, then she falls into her mother’s word and thinks “mama is right.” It’s like deep down she understands that her sister is who she is, but as the older one she worries about her as well. Worried she won’t fit in. It’s very pure and realistic, something siblings do worry about. To love someone as they are, but also worry about them being who they are in the world we’re in. ]
[ The childish reaction of the younger sister is also a good portrayal. The tantrum and the wishes. The hopelessness and the irrational resentment. It’s really well written out. ]
The overall plot to this story is fascinating. It leaves me wanting to read more. And the fact that the characters are both relatable and realistic is even better. The emotions are so raw and real, delicately explained with beautiful vocabulary. It’s really great.
This may sound a mess, but I wrote it out while reading to get a good layout of my thoughts. I really hope you continue this story, I really want to see where it’ll go.
