Read RIGHT now.

The Fifth Season by Hope.

Read it RIGHT now. In which I haven't been this creeped out in such a long damn time. Absolutely--chilling. And so subtle it hurts. And only one thing needed to change.

That fifth part is gonna kill you, but do yourself a huge favor and read it straight through.

*still gaping*

Whoa! Thanks for the heads-up. Nothing like creeping up on you quietly and sticking a dagger through your heart, is there?

I didn't even feel it go in until it twisted. *nod* Yep. This is something I'm not EVER forgetting.

*happy*

Heh, thank you for the enthusiastic rec, I'm glad you liked it. :) Now tell me the one thing I need to change? I fixed the typo in Bas's name *blush* I think I finally fixed the rest of them (my editing brain went nuts today) but if it's about the Autumn section, drop me a note and I'll tell you why I did that the way I did that. It was on purpose. :)

I think she meant that only one thing had to change in this alternate universe in order to create the ending, with all its vaster implications. Beautifully and economically done.

Oh. God. I amso spastc today. After I had to edit the file four times for missed typos, including the one where I misspelled Bas's name, I just figured... LOL thank you for clarifying, I'm obviously too stupid to live today. :)

Thank you for the rec

At least, I think thank you is the right word.

Part five is incredibly chilling, indeed. How does she do that with such an economical turn of phrase and characterization? It's unnerving and I think I just might be jealous.

Thank you, oh God, they're all good....

*looks at Hope with narrowed eyes*

Yes, darn her to heck and back.

I'm on my tenth read and it still gets me, EVERY time. The description and the simplicity and the sheer--*shudders*

It.

*shakes head*

Love you, Hope. I'm still in shock.
