Review of chapter "In Others' Eyes" from SilverRose
Huh. I always come away from River stories feeling a little odd. She just has such a unique voice when done well, as she is here, that I just really enjoy her. You did good. :-)

Good grief, of course you go and post this AFTER the nominations are closed for the stupid awards. :-p Wow. I really love this, you get into River's head so well it is almost scary.
As always, thank you for sharing this. :-)

Review of chapter "In Others' Eyes" from RevDorothyL
Wow! I love this glimpse into River's struggles, and I think you've beautifully captured something of what it must be like to look out of her eyes and long to revel in being a PERSON in someone's (Mal's) eyes.
But perhaps the most lovely bit (to me) was this:
"Friend River, Kaylee's eyes say. Sister River, except in dangerous times, when she becomes Warrior River: a fighter molded of spun glass, fearsome in aspect but fragile in nature. River cherishes that image, giving it a prized place on her mental mantelpiece; she takes it out and turns it over in her thoughts whenever she begins to fear the things her hands know how to do."
Reading that made me want to put that paragraph on MY mantelpiece, just to enjoy the warmth and beauty of it.

Lovely. A good balance between understandable and otherworldly. The description of Kaylee was gloriously beautiful. :-)
