All word count in the first place but it idn t really work for me The tropes I could have The Early Novels Of Naguib Mahfouz Images Of Modern Egypt done without It actually tainted the story for me asid the Computer Methods For The Eighties In The Mineral Industry direct lines of the moral being typed out Alyssao yourself a favor and Close Too Close The Tranquebar Book Of Queer Erotica do not underestimate your reader This is a short short about revenge and turning bodily into a bird but whato you expect when we re talking crow It s tight with the mythology but tighter with the character Not my absolute favorite of the Alyssa Wong stories but as a horror it s pretty evocative and eerie Definitely worth the read It s happening to all of us Brett yells barely audible over the howling crowd So you can come and help us sort this shit out see if we can stop it or you can keep turning into a fucking bird alone so i guess every tor short is written in second person now or i just have a homing The Selfish Giant Based On The Story By Oscar Wilde device trained on the ones that are because isn t it statistically improbable to have read something like four in a row written in second person it makes me want to rebel no ma am io NOT wake screaming from nightmares of Jonathan Chin my mouth crammed full of feathers and i resent you saying that i o this is libelthis isn t the most original or surprising story it s pretty clear where it s been and where it s going but the writing is a perfect spiky complement to the imagery of corvid beaks and claws scrabbling across the page and it s a haunting addition to the canon of recent YA lit centered around bullying and lgbt issues there s one gory scene and one saucy scene if you are someone who likes to be warned about those sorts of things me being me those are my favorite scenes in warned about those sorts of things me being me those are my favorite scenes in
Story And Neither Of Them Are Gratuitous and neither of them are gratuitous are just the right amount of ewwwwww or ohhhhhhhhit s a medium three story with a couple of peaks that rise up into high three territory i o really like the abruptness of some of the lines You ve gone blindor You listen until the screams The Major League Baseball Stadium Marketing And Siting Considerations A Bibliography die away Then you end the calland io kind of swoon at the last two paragraphsview spoiler I loved you you know says Jonathan Chin He s radiant in the light of early awn his bruised face streaked with tears an angel a corpse You fucker I loved you so much You sob and reach out for him but he issolves into a shower of black feathers that burn where they touch your skinYou scream and scream and scream clutching fistfuls of them in your ruined human hands On the ground the crows begin to feed in a mass flurry of rippling wings ignoring the creaking of a lone spinning wheel I loved you too you cry Finally everything out in the open But your friends make no sound at all hide spoiler. Horrific tale of tragic love and corvid loss This story contains scenes that some readers may find upsettin. Hlne Cixous Rootprints Memory And Life Writing dislike thatevice but I kind of want it to have Reveries Of The Wild Woman Primal Scenes depth after seeing itone so many times I have to confess though I loved Ginger Snaps There are also themes of religion self acceptance guilt and punishment All fine and well but the reasons this gets only two stars are the plot and the character motivesThe main character Eli pushed the boy he liked Jon off a roof and his ghost is now back to haunt him Murder seems like a major event in anyone s life but we never actually get a sense of why it happened Eli claims it was an accident while he and his friends were trying to scare Jon but that is not expanded upon either beyond what I just stated Was this a case of Eli s friends peer pressuring him into joining in on bullying Jon and it accidentally going too far Possibly but this is completely unclear in the story Eli s friends seem to be aware that he liked Jon but they only tease him about it so their acceptance is also brought into uestion but remains completely underdevelopedAt the end we get a melodramatic love confession from Jon s ghost who claims he loved Eli But not a few paragraphs earlier we found out that they shared one kiss weeks before the incident and Eli was sexually attracted to Jon and that s it This grand I really loved you you know bullshit makes no sense when the characters barely knew each other and had what was at most a teenage crush between them The short blurb New Trading Dimensions How To Profit From Chaos In Stocks Bonds And Commodities described this as a horrific tale of tragic love and boy have the standards for what is considered tragic goneown I Trading With Crowd Psychology didn t buy it for a second This also made their little ghostly groping session wildly inconsistent in tone and feel very out of left fieldShort note on the use of second person perspective sometimes it works sometimes itoesn t When the character is intentionally ambiguous it can bring an interesting generalizability to the story but when the character is set and not actually intended to be a reader insert it can totally break immersion I thought the latter applied in this case and I Guinea Pigs didn t find the purpose of writing in second person for this story so it came across.

really want to summarize it as I think part of story is about figuring out what s happening It took a little bit to realize what was going on but once I id I thought the story was good short stories are usually a hard sell for me usually a short story Leo Strauss And The American Right drops you in without any real kind of introduction and the endings always feel abrupt to me scarecrows beginningid feel very sudden but the middle section and build up to the ending was so good the ending Tales From Pigeon Inlet didn t feel abrupt to me which left me really surprised tbhthe writing was stunning it sefinitely not for everyone but it hit all the targets for me also this short story had something great going for it it was in written in second person perspective that s basically catnip for me like seriously recommend me all the second person narrative stories i eat them up like candythis also ealt with a lot of themes that i love to see being explored so aoverall i really enjoyed this and thanks to erika for recommending this because i have probably never heard about it otherwise Scarecrow by Alyssa Wong is a free to read short story by Alyssa Wong is a free to read short story here Having seen Karen give this a read in my feed I Never Unprepared The Complete Game Master S Guide To Session Prep decided to give it a shot It was free short and it s been a long while since I read an independent original short fic anyway With no reviw yet by Karen and the blurb really only Backyard And Beyond A Guide For Discovering The Outdoors describing this as a horrific tale of tragic love and corvid loss I went into it pretty blind I think that s what really made the impact of this It s too short to have anything spoiled The scenario was not entirely uniue but the execution wasone beautifully and originally It s an abstract work that reads like a poem With the Kafka esue unreality with the tropes of YA fiction of today it makes it something brand new That being said this being a story of tropes being put into the test of being Teaching Methods For The Bibliographic Instruction Librarian done aifferent way is not really something I typically appreciate I felt a isconnect from the characters espite the beauty of the art I know that is something hard to o in a sm.
