Thanks! I have very mixed feelings about this story, actually. Sometimes I reread it and I love it. Sometimes I reread it and I hate it. It breaks several of the "rules" I was taught when learning to write short stories, but I'm honestly not sure how I could have told the story otherwise -- except to let it mushroom into a very trite novel.
This is why it's important to declare a story done and start submitting it. It's impossible to get a good measure of your own work.
