"I think all your stories are craving for the senses especially "A New Word, A New Life." and "Sweat, Strength and Determination." which was worthy for that first place :). I haven't really finished reading all your stories but I will. I think the words are fantastic and exquisite in each of your stories." - Dark Yuki

"That story was something different! I love the end bit about the trampoline: genius. The whole plot line was extremely creative, especially the injections of fish scales! Very nice indeed. It was obvious that Lara would win, but you turned the obvious into something interesting, and that is what writing is all about. I think you truly achieved making a story that is compelling and exciting." - Seul Desir
