(#) LostEarthling 2008-06-18This is as tragic a tale as I have ever read, like the tragedies of Romeo and Juliet, Pyramus and Thisbe, or that of the lovers in Titanic . . . and what made it so heartbreaking is not just the fact that Julius was taken away from Delilah, but the fact that, as you said in the foreword, it was both LOVE AND LIFE that collided with DEATH. It was because they lived such fulfilling lives, sort of like making the most of every minute (Julius and Delilah were parters who embarked upon mission after mission to try and stop evil), and that they loved each other so much, sharing all those intense life experiences, that the death of Julius was so tragic. It's all the more tragic when such an intense pair of lives and such a strong love meet with death:(
And I think the spirit of the song was captured in Delilah's utterly broken spirit after the death of Julius . . . she didn't know what to do with herself, she didn't have a reason to live any more. I don't think I would either almost cried myself to sleep, putting myself in Delilah's place. .
Thank you for the story, and Keep writing you're great at it.
PS And don't worry about spelling . . . apart from the fact that if I noticed any error it didn't bother me at all, writing stories has nothing to do with spelling . . . you can learn to spell or look words up when you need to, but you can't learn to write the way you do . . . you have a gift. It's the stories and ideas that I'm interested in, not the spelling.
