I love the story! It was so eerie. Very well done!

My favorite part was: "Even the moon hid its face, afraid to come out on such a night."

I love stories like these. It teaches us to hearken to our instincts. When we see yellow eyes in a man's face, we need to RUN!!

    Thanks, Jason, for your humerous and appreciative review. Someone said this morning that it didn't meet the contest specifications for horror/thriller, and that was sort of depressing. I may try a few more of these fractured fairy tales. This was sort of a Hazel and Little Red Riding Hood meet the wolf.

    I'm thinking about getting a book of Grimms and twisting a few more. Glad you liked it. Somebody just told me it isn't scarey enough for the contest rules. Oh, well.

Immaculately written! What a superb story you've created here! Loved every time the lightning flashed, knowing something awful was coming, just not knowing what it would be. Great ending!

    Oh hey! I love it when the plan comes together. Actually, it started out as Hansel and Gretel, and then Hansel told me he was a werewolf (only another writer would understand that happening) but I still didn't know how it would end. "Uncle" was supposed to be a witch, and the two wolves would fight...but the thing wrote itself. Thanks for a great review, Lokman.

    Is there anything more wonderful in writing than when thinhs like that happen. True creativity coming to the fore!

Hola,

Nicely done.

Suspense builds well but sort of expected the ending to be somewhat like it was.

Good dialogue.

Good imagery.

I wished I had known how they met, got together and why they were out on this 'dark and stormy night'.

Maybe the story could be fleshed out a bit more.

Ciao,
FrankieT

    Yeah, I could have done that through dialogue and flashback. Guess I was too busy trying to create atmosphere. Some people expected the end, others were taken completely by surprise. Thanks for stopping by, Frankie.

    Can't take credit for the picture, Marion. Although I agree it's great, it was provided by the contest itself. Glad you like this little ditty. I might get a book of Grimms Fairy tales and play around in there some more.

Great story, full of suspense and it flowed very smoothly from the start to the finish. Only two very minor things:

Firstly, I think (and I'm not 100% sure about this) with elipsis that you are supposed to leave a space after it.
Secondly, I think the spelling is liebchen

Nice writing, good luck.


 Comment Written 05-Feb-2007



reply by the author on 05-Feb-2007
    On the second one, you're correct. On the first...I don't know. It's odd, I know how to spell liebchen, I didn't just throw it in there. Will take a look.

reply by the author on 05-Feb-2007
    The error in liebchen was a typo. I looked up the elipsis, and it appears I did it right. If I didn't, believe, Suneagle would have caught it when he reviewed this one.

reply by AidanConnors on 05-Feb-2007
    OK, I guess you're looking at different grammatical websites than I am.

When he was a boy? He told me he's eighteen. What an [A] strange thing to say. Oh, well, the whole night is odd--And darned scary!

Hansel raised his head. "The woodcutter's cabin is just ahead. I can smell he has a fire going, and something else. Food! Roasted rabbit. Do you smell it?" [HINT-HINT]

THIS IS REALLY GOOD. JUST ONE TYPO THAT I COULD FIND.

Interesting story. I didn't see any typos or errors in it. I think this will do very well in the contest. I liked it a lot. Good luck in the contest!

    Thanks, LittleEmpress. It started out as Hansel and Gretel, then something happened to Hansel and he became (shudders) a werewolf!

Very good modernizing of the Little Red Riding Hood tale. I would love to see this continued a bit to see what happens to Bette, and maybe hear a little about the family's disgrace. Good gripping story.

    Thanks, Michelle. It makes my day when someone doesn't want one of my stories to end. Remember when Hansel remembered the Black Forest legend of the werewolf of Feudenstadt? It was in internal monologue. That's the family disgrace, and "Uncle" is the werewolf who was shot while killing sheep and found in his bed as a wounded man.
