Destinye Raines | Lil | 22 | March 3 | Writer

Hi guys! :excited: by CookiemagiK My name is Destinye, but a lot of people call me Lil. I'm considered a student writer, although my focus in college is on education. Recently, I became overwhelmed in an online school, but with my husband's recent decision to focus on his writing again, I decided to take a break until the fall semester and work on my own projects.

This turned into us working on a project together.

I'm focusing on improving my own writing, as well as helping others. I'm big on respectful, yet helpful, critiques. Everyone deserves them! (Unless, of course, you don't want critiques.)

I'm pretty friendly, if I do say so. :heart: Never be afraid to approach me!

"...I enjoy the way that it is broken up. "To kill an Angel, you must do A and B, Doing so removes it's.." And then it continues to reflect that a broken Angel will replace what was taken with (fairly) the opposite, as well as what is returned in the place of what the Angel lost. I feel the repetitive nature of this ties it together well, keeping a good flow throughout the piece. I also enjoy that you portray that by taking away everything that makes and Angel, well, an Angel (it's wings, armor, and halo), it basically renders them human. Leaving them in such a state, however, can have three outcomes. I liked how you reflected these three outcomes. One can kill them. Or they can nurture them and they'll go back to their former glory. But these two outcomes are not touched on, even though they outcome of killing them once they're rendered defenseless is basically the title. Instead, you turn the piece towards them becoming a demon..." Read More~
