The thunder listens.


Written for a Quills and Sofas Speedwriting panic. The prompt was something to do with lightning. I can’t really remember to be honest. It was a year ago! Thought I should polish it up a little bit and get it out there.

Thanks to Snow Quill, Sunlight Rays, and Vis-a-Viscera for proof-reading during the initial contest :)

Omg this one!!! I’m so glad you published it, it was so good and I definitely accept the idea that thunder is our loved ones talking to us (the fact that there are thunder storms rolling through overhead right now is also perfect timing lol)

Yeah!!! Surprised you even remember it, it was so long ago! Also haha the timing is perfect

I think I'll pass.

I love the concept of thunder being our loved ones. Not much else to say other than that this was a good read.

Haha gotta love bots eh?

Thanks for the comment:) Glad you enjoyed

This was so heartwarming and sad at the same time, I loved this.

Thanks for the comment :) Glad you liked it

Very sweet! Not enough with these two, at least not lately. I'm sure there was more around Perfect Pear's airing, but I was still too caught up in KoLB and changeling lore to pay attention. :rainbowlaugh:

I like the premise, Pear does seems like the kind of mom who'd create stories and mystify things so her kids could engage with it easier.

Yeah, I’m surprised at the lack of stories with them. That’s why I just had to write my own haha!

Thanks for the comment :)

I'm not happy crying YOU are. :ajsmug:

But if you’re not crying, and I’m not crying... Then who’s driving this bus?

A beautiful story on a stormy day.

My grandmother's funeral was today, so this was actually really cathartic. Really creative way of dealing with fear of thunder and lightning. Well done, as usual.

I’m so sorry to hear about your grandmother. I’ll be honest, I’m not sure where I got the idea but I’m glad you think it works. Thanks very much for the kind words :)

It's a shame the show never developed anything after that episode in Season 7. This is the sort of scene that belongs in a follow-up episode to further expand the characterization and 'dot the i's' in regards to AJ's characterization.

I stand on my assertion that the show writers in the last seasons had no idea how to to world or character-building.

Hello! Have a review. I found this a touching story, and an interestingly different take on an underlying subject that's been written about a lot. A quiet fic about a loud event? Nicely done; have a like.

You're welcome! Mind you, it would have helped if I'd actually linked to the review! Should be fixed now. :)

Oh haha! I was so tired last night I didn’t even notice. Thanks again, I’ll go check it out right now
