P.T. says: I loved the humor and the ease and familiarity between the two lovers, and the way that the prompt was use was wonderfully creative.

P.T. says: Just enough detail to set the scene, wonderful humor, love the things found in the trunk.

P.T. says: I love the state of confusion that it left me in. Was she dreaming? And if so, which was the dream?

P.T. says: It left me wanting to know more -- who the characters are, what spell is actually being cast, whether this "wrong" spell is accidental or on purpose... So many questions that I want to read more to find the answers to. Cate's characters seemed very real and fleshed out to me, even in that brief of a piece.
"I'd like to get out of here, Sorin. Before the Gyere return, preferably. How long before you can do the spell?"
"It isn't a bunting recipe. I need to recite the spell precisely and the language is archaic."
"Well, I'll just sit down over here and let you spell, or conjure, or whatever it is you mages do."
Sorin spared him a glance as Ejan sat on the cold floor of their cell in the obsidian prison. She was losing her confidence rapidly. The spell that could free them was long and complex.
"You would think this sort of spell would not be all that complicated," Ejan said.
"Maybe you'd like to give it a try," Sorin said.
"Okay, okay, I'll just be quiet."
"I think I've got it," Sorin placed her index finger on the beautifully illustrated letter introducing the spell and took a breath. She then recited the first four words in the archaic language of the ancient tome.
"Sorin, wait! That's not the spell."
Congratulations Cate, P.S., Cari, and Mary! Don't forget to claim your badges and display them with pride. You certainly earned it!
