Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening/Night(whichever one it is in your part of the world),
Hi! I'm here to leave a quick review!!
First Impression: Hmm...well this was a really neat little story....bit of a sadish start there and then a very sweet ending...it also had a very fairy tale esque vibe to it over the course of the story and I just loved that....well anyway more details down below.
Anyway let's get right to it,
A boy with a face as pale as the moon gazed up at the stars – his eyes twinkling in the dim light like two drops of fairy dust. He yearned for the dark sky to reach down upon the earth and cradle him in its cosmos.
Hmm...okay...that's a pretty neat start there, definitely some really interesting wished there for this boy...and the description there for the boy is really nicely done too.
He wished to be enveloped in the twilight, to be whisked away to a kingdom where the stars never faded and the world was cast in eternal night – utter bliss.
Hmm...well that's an interesting wish to have, to be someone that loves the night sky and stars enough to want to spend their time in an eternal night.
Every night as the moon ascended to her peak in the sky, the boy climbed out through his bedroom window and up the ivy veins to the roof.
He could always hear a soft melody drift through the air, the words a distant but strangely familiar cry in the wind that calmed his disquieted heart. He softly hummed the lament, pondering the stars in their vast array.
Hmm...well that melody definitely seems like it could be really interesting....this story is giving off a nice fairytale vibe at the moment and I am all for it.
Meanwhile every night, from her seat on the porcelain throne overlooking the world, the lonely lunar queen would sing the world to sleep.
The boy’s voice carried woes of his own fragility and loneliness when he responded to her song - a dark void of solitude where she too often found herself.
Hmm...well that's a surprisingly emotional note there, two lonely souls just sort of singing out to each other...that's a beautiful and sad thing to imagine there...this is a really cool pair of paragraphs there.
The boy’s heart was a battered ship amidst internal tempests, kindred to her own, always on the brink of falling apart. His heart called to hers, like a beacon on the shore, their song the guiding light binding their souls together.
Ahh the description there is just awesome...its perfectly captures the situation going on here and this whole thing is getting a very poetic vibe at the moment.
On one particular night he ascended to his rooftop in a fit of tears, shedding the entire ocean within him. The queen’s heart broke with every shattering cry, which rang out like an echo into the boundless void.
The description continues to somehow be epic and emotional at the same time...I'm going to stop trying to figure out how and just enjoy it from here on.
She could hear his cries from miles high and grew pained at the thought of what could ail him. For this, she blew him a kiss of wind, which descended upon his rooftop, whooshing him upward through and through layers of the atmosphere.
Hmm...well this could be interesting...she's really trying to reach out here...
He glanced down at the world, tears clinging to his face before tumbling to the earth, which grew smaller and smaller as he ascended higher and higher.
His feet settled upon the moon dust before the lunar queen, their gazes converging in the silent stillness. She was beautiful, dressed in a gown of starlight and a crown of moonstone, her face shining like porcelain.
Ahh...loving all of this imagery so far, you're really creating some amazing visuals here in this story. This definitely does seem like it would be quite a cool place. And that ascent to the moon also really captures the magic of this area well.
The boy’s tears faded as he looked upon her with wonder. “Where are we?” He asked. She spread out her arms and gestured to the beautiful moonstone architecture surrounding them. “Why, the moon of course,” she answered. “And the earth as well as all its inhabitants are fast asleep, except for you. Do you know why that is?”
Hmm...well the fairy tale vibes are seriously increasing now...and well I love it...
He shook his head. “Because you are special my dear boy. I have brought you here that I may lay your woes to rest with mine far away. Now come, and let me dry your tears for here there will be no more sadness.” She beckoned him forward.
He gazed at her in hesitation before taking a step, then another before stumbling up the steps and into her arms. “Can I live here forever,” he whispered into the dazzling folds of her gown. “Here, you may fulfill every dream in your heart my dear child.” She then began to sing, soft as the night, which settled around them.
That feels almost like this is some kind of analogy for him having died here and then ascended to live forever in peace among the stars...or am I overthinking this...at any rate this is looking like a really peaceful ending we're heading towards and away from all that sadness at the start.
This song however did not weave a tale of woe in the way her other melody did. Instead, from it ushered a fountain of joy, which sprang up within her heart while the boy, her little prince, lay cradled in her arms.
After a while he began to sing as well and together they voiced their newfound contentment in each other as the moon’s descent made way for the rising sun.
Well that's a sweet little ending...and as someone who loves exactly that type of ending, I love this.
Aaaaand that's it for this one.
Overall: Well...this was quite a nice little story here....definitely a pretty relaxing story to read and you're left with a smile on your face at the end of it. Not much else you can really ask from a story eh?
As always remember to take what you think was helpful and forget the rest.
