So, while I was working on "Philomeanie," a fellow author and compatriot of mine, the talented and knowledgeable horizon, was similarly working on a Luna story for the exact same story contest, a piece entitled "Thou Goddess." For entirely different reasons, we both were cramming our writing into the last week of the contest, and it ended up being a weird but ultimately unforgettable week of back-and-forth readings and revisions for the both of us. I think that as a result of this communal writing experience, our respective stories sort of developed in tandem with one another (although he did my story more benefit than I fear I did his). They're not the same, mind you; not by a longshot; while "Philomeanie" is a slapstick story that eventually lurches to an awkwardly uplifting ending, "Thou Goddess" is magical and transcendent all the way through. It's got damn fine poetry, bad puns, a guest appearance by everyone's favorite bureaucrat Dotted Line, and a transformative moment that was quite nearly breathtaking.
Anyway, a story like this really needs some more loving. Check 'er out!
