My stories

Gold cherry

Pillock's Castle (3)

The journal ponders the ideal family.

It does sound  easy, but it never is.  Loved the line 'The stretcher bearers are silently carrying the dead away. Reason lost another battle last night.'  I hope the narrator finds a way through.

Very well paced, packed full of information but not overloading the reader.  Particularly like the way the dialogue develops and gives insight into the characters.

This is great - the sense of unease is beautifully maintained, with Weasley giving the reader shudders and our concern for Kit growing all the time.  Excellent cliffhanger ending.  Please do keep posting more of this, it's so good.
