Olho-me no espelho e este dá-me de volta uma parte de mim. Eu rio, alto, assustado. Duas longas coisas saem deste corpo: são os braços. Buracos, pelos, pele, nariz, duas orelhas presas na minha cabeça. Olho os dedos, olho os meus olhos; assustador. Falo, sinto emoções e bebo cerveja. Ridícula imagem, esta minha, ali de pé em frente ao espelho. Eu vejo-me de fora. Crio uma abstracção mental do que eu nunca vi. Sou humano, vejo e sinto. É esquisito. É realmente esquisito. Procuro-me no espelho e não me acho. Só vejo aquilo ali, parado. Um monte de carne equilibrada por ossos duros que me mantem de pé. Ali no espelho.

Ben Gauger: Kudos go to the author of ''Equinox: Into the Clouds'' for originality in character development as well as scene execution and in addition plot development, A truly original story if I do say so myself, though the spelling in and of itself could use a little work, but other than that a truly orig...

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...

PurpleInkling: Hippocrite is spelt hypocrite.Also it is an awesome story! A good one after so long. I was hoping someone would write a good fanficiton playing off what Ron said at the station. You are doing a remarkable job. It would have been interesting if Albus had also ended up in Ravenclaw though that mig...

John Reed: Seadrias masterfully captures the impressiveness and complex scope that a science fiction novel should provide while carefully crafting an entire universe that will leave a reader in awe from start to finish. The only flaw I could find is that I wish I could have read more. This book is certainly...

Elizabeth Miller: Fabulous book! I loved how it was unpredictable and not the stereotypical vampire book! The characters and plot was very well thought out. I couldn't put it down. I can' wait for the next one!

Olivia N J Hamel: I want this book. I love it so much. It is so enjoyable to read and to have a copy of this always, I would be very happy, to always be able to come back and look at it again.

Usagi Kita: This story is emotional from beginning to end. You get to watch the characters struggle and grow, maturing in different ways so that they come to be the people they are meant to be. Inea is insanely adorable, and his antics made me laugh more than once, and Kaedon is perfect for him in so many wa...

Warchief: The biggest problem with the Harry Potter series is that it's all from his point of view. So we never really get to see or understand events from other peoples perspective. I think that they would be more than a few people that want to know what happened at Hogwarts during that last year.As far a...
