Impossible Numbers

"Gather ye rosebuds while ye may, Old Time is still a-flying, And this same flower that smiles today, Tomorrow will be dying."


When Lyra was only a child, she had an active imagination. So active that it far outclassed the dismal drudgery of reality. Of what had just happened to her. But she can't hide from the truth forever...

Adventure definitely works. Fantastic portrayal of a brilliant little mind coping with its first taste of grief. Granny Virgo is characterized magnificently, and the visuals are gripping throughout. Thank you for this.

The descriptions in this text reminded me of Palimpsest, by Catherynne Valente.

In an excellent way. Your prose is really enticing.

No, thank you for writing this, dear Author.

Blue Chameleon comments preserved post-deletion:

:applejackunsure: Really not sure about the one tag. I can justify 'em all, but "Random" was the closest I could get to "Dream", and I've half a mind to change it to "Adventure" or "Dark" or something (Adventure cos it involves exploring another world, Dark because of the theme of death and the afterlife).

EDIT: Changing it to "Adventure" for the moment, but still not sure, and would like some feedback on this.


Oh, I'll keep the "Adventure" tag in that case. Good to know!

Not much to add here, 'cept I loved writing this one and I'm glad it came over so well for you. Yours is a bonza comment, and no two ways about it. :twilightsmile:

That's in a good way, or in a bad way? Only I'm not familiar with that book.

Ah, I see. Thanks a lot for the compliment. It's very kind of you. :twilightsmile:
