For them, a dream. Like thousands of other dreams. For you, a story. Like thousands of other stories.


This story is a sequel to Silence and Motion

Sometimes you remember who you used to be. Sometimes your best friend helps put things in perspective for you. Sometimes you remember it's okay to be who you are.

Octavia's always got a shoulder.

Teen for mild language. I'm afraid I've quite forgotten where I got the cover art; if it's yours or you know whose it is, please let me know.

Wow... Vinyl's monologue was startlingly beautiful and I was awestruck at the passion and philosophy that she articulated.! Octavia's understanding and counter-philosophy made me think not just about my life, but others in my life... This was a beautiful, philosophical read that I applaud you for creating..!
6 out of 5 stars!

That was a cute little story. It's usually not my cup of tea, but I'm glad I read this one.

Good job bro. :twilightsmile:

I enjoyed this. Certainly not what I thought it was going to be when I went in. I like this little piece quite a lot.

I enjoyed this very much. Vinyl and Octavia both had a new part of their characters that you don't see often. nice work, Lysander. :ajsmug:

I love your interactions between these two. It's got all these implied layers, lots of showing of character in all the little actions and what they find important or surprising. Rich, but not overwhelming.

Well, it's hard for me to say at this point what my exact intentions were for this piece, but I suppose it's fair to say that being thought-provoking is satisfying to most any author.

Much belatedly, thank you for giving this one a chance. ^^

I know it's been a good while since you read it, but if you don't mind my asking--what did you expect?

I enjoy adding depth to characters--especially depths that wouldn't, necessarily, be immediately apparent, or things you outright associate with that personality. I like playing with tropes, more or less; and these two seem a fine way to do it.

As I said above... I'm not in the business, generally, of writing shallow characters--or, I should say, I try not to be. Really, I suppose my headcanon for these two is a mishmash of half a dozen other authors' thoughts and that's why I don't particularly want to explore it, or, indeed, feel that I should. All of the typical things are there. Me, I'm far more interested in watching what happens when you put those mishmashes out to play.

Thank you all for your comments and apologies on the massively delayed response!
