Michelangelo is shown what the world would have been like if he had never been born... but there's something terribly wrong here: Why does it look like everyone's better off without him?!
- Whoa, very brilliant story.
I love how you've figured all the details out. I was especially impressed by the whole Leatherhead-Stockman-Utrom -thing.
Leatherhead and Leo calling Stockman casually as 'Baxter' or some nickname would've been a nice detail though. :)
The spirit being Venus was also cool twist. There's indeed a lot of symbolism in many ways. ;)
Hopefully I remembered everything. I was so deep in the story I didn't have the patient to stop to review each chapter separately. :P
Author's responseThank you for your kind words. ^_^ And you're right -- Leo and Leatherhead calling Baxter Stockman by a nickname would have been funny to include... I just didn't think of it when I wrote the story. If I had, I definitely would have. But oh well... there'll always be some missed opportunities, i guess.
