Hope is a bastion of light cutting through the saddness

Your story is sweet and concise. It is difficult and sad. In a minimalistic way you've captured a rawness that is relevant to everyone with a husband and a father, a wife and a mother and more importantly a child with a big life moment looming large overhead.
Despite some issues with tenses, grammar and punctuation the story hits close to home. As a father who is close to losing a father in-law, I watch my wife's sorrow at losing her father, and we discuss and debate how we will tell our daughter and help her understand while she is far too young to grasp the depth of what the rest of us are going through. You've done a marvellous job of touching each aspect of the reality.
Beyond that you've created an endearing and hopefully enduring mother/daughter relationship full of love and hope in spite of all the sadness and misunderstanding.

A really nice read and change of pace for me. Great work!

Ethereal Serenity

An interesting take on the Astral planes and human-angel relationships. The cast of characters are full of compassion and a depth of care that is entirely heartwarming.
A must read for anyone looking for their guardian angel, or for anyone interested in the celestial realms.

Noir Period

"Your mind eventually drifts back into the dark..." Is what reading The Trident is like. It pulls you in with the awkwardly smooth 40's era dialogue without suffocating you on traditional private eye machismo. You lose yourself to the black and white surreality of it, and the grey who dunnit and why?
The setting is well thought out, but even better is the cast of characters who pop in and out complete with their baggage - as we all do.- but the classic exposition and constant wandering thought traffic of the narrator keep you in pace with the genre-specific style that is working on you as you read.

You leave the page to go and do something, anything else and find yourself thinking in italics, narrating your own thoughts and actions in Allison's voice.

A really great start for a self-proclaimed novice of the genre!
