   "Again, wonderfully written! Again, not entirely sure I know what’s going on... I love the subtle ways you tie the stories together, letting us know who the narrator is without saying who it is. I’ll have to read back through previous installments and through the teddy bear part - it’s terrifying even if I don’t exactly know what happened. (Was there fluff lying around him? Organs? Mechanical bits? Definitely will have me thinking for a while. Well done!"

And I love the whole idea that if that one bad thing hadn't happened she may not have ended up here, with everything she never knew she wanted and needed falling into place. *Thanks, Universe!* Well done, you. I'm a fan for life."

   "Very cool. Kind of a 'Firestarter' government conspiracy vibe... I'm not sure if the way he sees his mom or how fine he is with it is more disturbing. I'd love to read more about this, see where Oliver goes and what happens to his dad - and is the last name thing subliminal? Like, they're trying to keep him calm? πŸ€” I'll definitely be thinking about this the rest of the day. As always, I love the cadence, the descriptions. I will say that the last scene switch confused me, that I wasn't sure whose point of view it was at first, but that's probably just me. Nice work!"

I love the character development, too - he was a loner, contemplating suicide, and now he's the one working so hard to save everyone, putting himself at risk with every step. I don't think he would have done that at the beginning. Well done!"

Information is Kay's life and not knowing what happened to her best friend - and why - just isn't acceptable. Can't wait for the next installment."

The technical speak is fascinating - I will assume it's accurate because, well, I don't know any better. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ I think you do a good job of demonstrating the different personalities in such a short time, too. I'd like more story, though... Well done!"

   "πŸ₯° I miss my littles. Youngest is a senior this year. I still check in with him. Like you, I can sense when he's got something on his mind. He's my quiet one, the only one I have to drag information out of. He's been a serious little old man for as long as I can remember. As the youngest, he benefits from all the nonsense his older siblings pulled and went through and has told me that it's just easier to tell me the truth. (Amen, kid.) I ask him point-blank questions about his girlfriend, about drugs/alcohol, about his friends or other kids in school. I'm exceptionally fortunate that he tells me, too. (Sorry - this shouldn't be about me πŸ™„) Keep at it, Mama! Make deep talk as normal as breakfast and they'll most likely keep it up for the rest of their lives!"

   "Wow. Wow wow wow. Lots of thoughts on this. There is some beautiful alliteration, some very clever and deep wordplay. I heard it in my head read like the poetry of Jim Steinman (https://youtu.be/0q8f-XTeZ3I) and imagined Fate as the IT from A Wrinkle in Time in places (A trick. Distraction by deception, fueled by love, reinforced by misery). I felt a lot of relevant and meaningful messages, whether they were intended or not. There was some outstanding imagery! The paragraph in the first chapter that starts, "Hammer and chisel" was gorgeous. There were times this felt like the imaginings of a fever dream that I would never be able to understand and then there were parts that seemed crystal clear. You're right, it's different than your other work, but I still really enjoyed it and will most likely read through it several more times."

   "I hate that she's inside her head so much, making her second-guess herself. But I absolutely understand kind of being outside of yourself when things are wrong, not able to just be quiet. In the big picture it's a GOOD thing. Not sure how I feel about Maggie's advice. To an extent, I agree. Maybe not with the sticker/badge idea, but accepting it in general. Has she ever worried before about being liked? Or is it just knowing that there are people (Keith) who actively dislike her?"

   "Oh geez. She is absolutely right that no one would say that about a man. Because she's a woman, she's expected to always put others' feelings first. That's nonsense. (Don't get me wrong, that's exactly what I do, but I'm a complete pushover.) I just hope it doesn't change the way she does things. She can't, in good conscience, hem and haw and pussyfoot around issues to spare someone's feelings. And Keith is a big baby. There's no way Kay is the sole reason he doesn't get the big projects. Entitlement, much? Ugh. Sorry. Great chapter!"

The insecurity is no joke and the people who look down on staying home have no idea how much you do, how much there isn’t time for, how much isolation there is, how much guilt there is over the ways you (I) are letting people down no matter how much you do, and how easy it is to lose yourself and your self worth. 😞 I am in awe of your range of talent! So glad I β€œmet” you and I’m diving in to your series with both feet!"
