Funny story. I actually wrote this.
I posted "Aphrodite" anonymously to another website for review. It wasn't actually called "Aphrodite," that's something Elixur came up with randomly. Apparently Elixur thought my opening was good enough to steal and call his own. In truth, what he stole is only the start of a 357 page, completed book which I'm in the process of sending out to publishers in hopes of it becoming a legitimate work.
Just thought I'd get the truth out there. I think it's pretty cool stumbling across someone narrating my work, so I definitely don't want this taken down, I just want people to know that Elixur didn't write this.
I've responded to your private message.
At first, my mind stuttered to comprehend the story. Then, emerged from the story the concept of a zombie, roaming through the streets of a forgotten city, through hordes of the undead, listless. Then, after she was hit, and carried by the man, a concept came to mind of a stray cat, malnourished, being taken to a clinic by the concerned man. After having taken her to the clinic, he put her in the vets' care, but still watched, out of concern, as they did their best to heal her of her pain. And then it ended, with a warm embrace, and not even a whimper.
That's a great interpretation of the tale. This review is more for Elixir than I it seems. My own interpretation was a bit more literal and a little less cool, reminding me of either an intro or an open ended outro to a story in a world like either Mad Max or Journey. But hey, I was never recording it to pretend I could really wrap my own head around it.
And fuck you for making me think about dying cats.
Holy shitpoop! You're good. Really good. I love watching you grow better and better every damn year.
I... I'm gonna use you someday (sounds so dirty).
Ready for filthy use.
This is very impressive! I felt grittiness and realism, and yet a touch of fantasy as well. And a lot of endurance in your voice too. Thanks for the experience!
Thanks for listening.
Well read sir! I like this piece. I am glad to see you keeping at it! You are too good to go to waste.
Ah, you. <3
