Failure

Drama / Horror

Failure

The soothing lull that had once resounded with brillance around me had been taken away and replaced by the overwhelming stench of death. No matter what I would do, what I could do, I could not change any of the events that would follow. No matter how many times I went back over and over and over again, nothing could be achieved. Ever. My mind, heart, and soul had been damaged beyond repair, been stretched too far too many times. Everything in me wanted to scream with pain. Even though I was in no physical pain, my mental pain was pure agony.

I had failed the people that I had come with. I had failed them. They couldn't remember why I'd failed them, or the dozens of other times we were in the same predicament. Because I had decided to travel back in time over and over and over again, I had to lie to them. They had no idea what I was doing. They had no idea that I had gone back over and over and over again to the point where I was forgetting my past life. I even forgot how I met... what was his name again? I can't seem to remember... All I can remember is that I loved him. And he left.

But I had failed so many people, so many nations...

Alfred F. Jones, the personification of the United States of America.

Arthur Kirkland, the personification of England, or since his brothers refused to come to any meetings, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Francis Bonnefoy, the personification of France.

Matthew Williams, the personification of...Canada...Wait, who?

Ivan Braginski, the personification of Russia.

Yao Wang, the personification of China.

Gilbert Beilschmidt, the personification of the nonexistant nation Prussia. I'm glad he survived when his nation was abolished. I think it may have something to do with the fact that his capital city still stands as part of Russia...maybe?

Kiku Honda, the personification of Japan.

And, oh God, I had failed Ludwig Beilschmidt. Otherwise known as the personification of Germany.

If you're wondering about me... I'm Feliciano Vargas, the personification of Northern Italy. And I have failed every person I've ever cared about.

LouiseJ2: I enjoyed the detail you went into with regards to the case. It made the UNSUB appear believable. The crisis in the middle of the story was my favorite part, very dramatic but not over the top.

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...

ianwatson: The comedy is original and genuinely funny, I have laughed out loud many times reading this book. But the story and the plot are also really engaging. The opening two or three chapters seem quite character-dense but they all soon come to life and there is no padding, filling or wasted time readin...

aeratheninja: Interestingly enough, this story touches on different psychological states and was very informing, on top of being a solid story.
