What the fuck...

I'm sorry to hear the friend of yours passed away. I don't know anything about them, and I'm not exactly sure what this story is supposed to reflect about your relationship, but it's very talented in what you set it out to do.

I think the biggest appeal to writing stories from Cozy’s perspective is guessing exactly what psychosis she has. Sociopathy, schizophrenia, BPD... simply slapping medical labels on her don’t really capture the same “oomph” as glimpsing the world through her madness-clouded eyes.

Maybe “the hole” doesn’t exist and it’s a metaphor for her refusal to repent. Maybe it’s (Finale Spoiler by the way) her warped perception of self after being petrified but still conscious for who knows how long.

Whatever the case, good character study and use of tone. Would have liked more hints towards the true nature of “the hole,” but sometimes life leaves us without answers. I can live with that. Take an upvote.

Good story. Too many dead horses around here.

As some others say, "go on without me, I'll be fine." Yet others say, "Hell is real and we are in it. Some of us have learned to love it."

(The title has the theme song from The Wire stuck in my head now, but it's a different cover every time I think of it)
