A chunk of a story set in the House of Red Fireflies world, which I've had half-written down for awhile, and finished up because I have a really dire case of poison ivy and when I can't sleep for the itching, writing's at least distracting. I really oughta illustrate this one, like I did the "Dream Deer" story, but the illustrating takes a lot longer than the writing...

This is an amazing story! It's perfect for a rainy day. I could read this and the golem girl over and over. You're a wonderful writer and artist, and I'm so glad I know your work.

Tall, willowy, piercing eyes, slender, not into girl-plants. Does your hamadryad come from a yaoi-tree, perhaps?

Plant people! Such wonderful personalities to them, too.

I believe my favorite line in this is "Meeble." *grin* So human, these plant people, and still they are definitely not animal.

Mandrake girl is cute! And general cute all around and I feel a bit sorry for the Squash God's son.

Fantastic and absolutely unique story, humorous at some parts, sweet at others. This is one of the best stories I've read yet

What a LOVELY fairy tale! I haven't read such a nice one in so long. (nice being, well thought out, well written, good, but not flakey character and a happy ending. And humor. Humor is always good.

A brilliantly told story, and one that attracted me very much. Your description of the characters made them come alive. :)

This story is absolutly wonderful, I really hope you write more. I'd also really like to see you do a web comic about The House of the Red Fireflies. I think with your style of art and writing, it would be fantastic. Your so awesome =D
