For *ICanReachTheStars. The preview is a bad picture (I'm sorry) of how it looked when I wrote it out. She asked for a story with her original characters: ...the girl is named Karu, the boy named Kurai. The background story is that the girl is in love with the boy. One day the boy gets dragged into a pond by a black swan, and turns into one himself. The girl jumps after him and turns into a human white swan. With magic powers she saves him and they keep living togheter, seen by others as a black and a white swan, while they see each other as half swan-half human.

I tried to follow it as closely as I could. Hopefully, she'll like it! (I'm worried to death about this! :nuu:)

Ooh :eager: It's so interesting to see prose from you; you handle it beautifully, without any over-description. I love the mythical feel and the voice of the storyteller, the way s/he breaks out of it to directly address the reader – brilliant. :)

Oh, gosh. :blush: Is this some sort of not-so-secret mission for attempting to turn V permanently pink and gooey from compliments? :noes:

I've only done one prose story before (about Constantinople, no less, and its fall :paranoid:) and it was not that great, so I'm glad to hear this works for you! Thank you so, so much. I had to put that in bold because I don't have my brain with me, so I can't leap compliments on you, so. Bold text. And lots of emotes. :glomp: :heart:

Haha, well really a mission to finally get around to the devs in my inbox, but shh – that works, too. :heart: (So long as you don't go permanently gooey, else you wouldn't be able to type. :noes:)

You're very very welcome. I really enjoyed it. :D :tighthug:

So do I reply or not to reply? :noes: I don't want to fill up your inbox! :nuu: (And seriously, your inbox sounds scary and I don't want it. And, aww, don't worry, I shan't go permanently gooey. Or, all parts except my hands and brain (though isn't the brain gooey anyway?) shall go goeey, so I'll still be able to type. :giggle:

:glomp: :heart:

No, reply away! :lol: I don't want to stop getting comments. I just may take agggess to reply. XD
I don't imagine so. It is scary. :noes: I need to upgrade the machete I use to hack through it. And possibly employ an army of ninjas to help me. XD
*now visualising V as a pile of goo with just hands and a gooey brain* :paranoid:

Oh, good! That's fine, I'm pretty much the same lately. :lol:

Nice! XD I'm just slow on everything because I'm terribly lazy. It's not that I have a lot of messages to reply to, it's just that most of them are really, really long. :XD: NINJAS! :iconninjalaplz:

I'm with you about the really really long thing. :XD: I love long comments, but sometimes it's like replying to 10 messages at once. :P

Tell me about it! But it must be worse for you. :fear: (And I STILL have to reply to your awesome comments! Would you mind if I just said 'thank you so much' (or variation) plus a love/gwomp/some sort of expressive emote/plz? My thesaurus is running out of synonyms for 'awesome'. :giggle:) I know - everyone should use bullet points! Rainbow ones!

... but I LIKE the really really long messages, that's the problem with me. :P

How can you even be worried for me not liking this? <3 I love it so much! ;U; I thought I would be dissapointed if my Santa but be a writer would I couldn't had been more wrong: I loved it! :D Just to start with how it looks like: A round little book, tied togheter and with a beautifully drawn/written first page, I gasped when I saw it >u< Serious, you think your writing is ugly? :'D Please don't EVER say that again, your writing is beautifull and a thousand times better than mine ;u;

When I was reading your story I could completely picture what it would look like, the Ice Loch, and how the girl (Karu) would follow the boy (Kurai), the swans, everything! I got so excited about it, your story would make a perfect fairy tale ;U; I got all my family members to read it haha <3

I'm going to place the box with the little book in it on a pretty place in my room, where everyone, and I, can see it :3 And I'm also going to keep the envelope haha!

Once again, thank you so much! :heart: I totally love it <3

You like it! :squee:

I'm so happy you like it! I'm glad, glad, glad that you think it's nice looking and a good story and everything. Thank-you so much! And I'm also glad that it worked like a fairy tale for you. :D I was hoping that me not mentioning their names or changing some small things wouldn't be terribly bad but I'm so excited that you like it! You got all your family members to read it? :blush: Oh wow, that's great - seriously, I'm over the moon that you liked the story! Eep. <3

Awww. You're too nice! I'm really glad it made you happy, seeing as I've never done this before, and I'm glad! Aww. It was my pleasure really! It was fun to write out and decorate and everything, I had loads of fun cutting out those circles with a circle cutter. Merry belated Christmas and early Happy New Year! :tighthug: :heart:

Like? I love it eheh >//<

You're welcome <3 Not mentioning the names is one part I probably like the most of it! : D It makes it look even more like an ancient fairy tale that way I think :D
Haha aww (':

I'm glad you liked to do it, I was pretty much afraid my wished would be a bit dull ahah;; >u<
It looks gorgeous the way you did it <3

You too a (very;; ) belated Christmas and a Happy newyear! :heart:

It is a lovely story, V. My main comment is that Loch , Santa and Jack Frost are European references, while cherry blossoms around a lake is a more Asian, particularly Japanese image, even though there are cherry trees in Europe. :)

Thank-you so much, Lia! :tighthug: I'm happy you noticed that - it is, and I'm not sure why I did that, but *ICanReachTheStars did tell me that her OCs names, and they sounded Japanese to me for some reason, so I think I sort of combined European fairytale references and Japanese surroundings. I don't know. I have no idea what I was thinking when I wrote this, only that it had to be good. :lol:
