A very sad drawing, but a very excellent one as well.

I read the short fan fic and your drawing fits the mood of the story very snugly. Im a big fan of shadeing, and without this effect this drawing would fall apart. An excelent job indeed.

The glowyness(?) Of the drawing also brings out another effect, hope and the feeling of hopelessness at the exact same time. It's hard to think about that, but the Orange glow of the lantern really makes you feel warm and fuzzy on the inside, but it also makes you feel as if the only hope is fading away into nothingness.

Her facial expression also brings out the feeling of hopelessness, as she is not squinting while crying, but open eyed, as if she is accepting her fate, but its tearing away at her from the inside.

Very, very good job.

Sorry about any random spelling and grammar mistakes, I'm on my broken cell phone that randomly presses keys :D

Have never read a story that has left me feeling so, empty. This definitely brings to life everything she felt. Beautifully portrayed.

I reckon the saddest chapter is the one about how "every pony is made for love" or something like that. That as just sad. And depressing, almost inciting suicidal feelings. That author really messes with ones emotions, and I think you have captured that.

I know, it's gonna take a lot of time, but heck it's worth it. Well, that's IMHO of course.

I'll tell you, I'm a slow reader, but over the span of a month I managed to have it finished. Well, that's also because the story got me hooked to such extents I wouldn't go anywhere without my newly-bought ereader -- which I basically bought for this very reason. :)

I understand, the writing style is pretty advanced.
In believe, though, that you'll find it progressively easier to read as you advance throughout the chapters; you'll be memorizing certain expressions, words, phrase schemes and basically SS&E's style. The first chapters are the hard part. :)

I also had a hard time reading it. The fic is written with a lot of metaphors and figurative language that make it difficult to interpret.
