Nice. Very nice. Deep, mysterious, vague, and spellbinding. But there's this one feeling I can't quite grasp. I dunno, connection maybe? I'm really not sure, but the way it's played out it makes me feels like I'm right there. I guess you could say that the emotion is so strong that you feel like you're a part of it, IMO. I really do hope that made sense. *sweatdrop*
Chapter 12? Wow. Just out of curiosity, how long have you been working on this? Because you're obviously doing quite well with it.
All in all, great work and a nice chapter!
