You manage to wrap your linguistic skills around a favorite character of mine, and you execute it with near perfection. The analogies are vivid, the tie-in to Machine Wars clever(A subscriber to D Van D's theory, yes?), and the subject matter well-articulated. It's a wonder this hasn't been elected to the top ten list sooner. And I'll forgive the terrible puns for the simple reason that I enjoy such literary parallels. ;) It's a good piece -- rated nine if only for the purpose that a few lines felt out of character-- and one well worth the relatively short period of time it takes to read.
I just love this story. I've read it probably 6 times as of this moment, and every time I read it I come across some marvellous little detail that I hadn't noticed before. Considering how concise this story is, that's really saying something. Let us all pray that Sky Shadow never gets tired of writing fanfic, and let us pray further that more of his stories get posted to Lexicon where they can be fully appreciated. Bottom line: Read This Story. You'll be glad you did.
