Oh, nice. I want to respond to this challenge, at some point. I'd take it in a considerably different direction, but I really like your perspective.

hey weatherman, this is an excellent short piece. truly "a little gem." (get it? hahaha) it's got all the ingredients a short story needs to work - good flow, plot twist, logical progression, insight into main character, added dimension, raises doubt, leaves reader with stuff to think about, emotionally moving w/out being overly done, demonstrating gemini's genious and all this with an "economy of words" and also just as importantly, it's believable. you're very good at striking just the right balance. wonderful! do you still need a beta? (even with a warped sense of humor?) send me an email, if you do. you've got natural talent.
Author's Response: Wow, thank you very much for all the praise topanga and thank you for reviewing! (psss, it's middleman, lol)

Great little piece again. It was good, the way you potrayed Gemini and his insight into who the man in the picture really is. Thanks for a good read.

Great perspective! However, wasn't the visit by Miss Parker made AFTER Mr. Raines told Gemini about the man who 'killed' his parents?
Well, its still probable, but thats the only aspect that shouted out at me.
Author's Response: Lol, yeah, you spotted my little time-tweak, anamchara! Let's just put it down to creative license, shall we? Glad you liked the story and thank you for your review! Reviewer: anamchara Anonymous [Report This]

Interesting story. So Gemini knew right from the start that he was a clone? Even before Jarod rescued him and told him?
Author's Response: Well, not exactly, I don't think... He had realized that something didn't add up, but he hadn't made the leap yet to realizing that he was a clone. At least not consciously...
Glad you liked the ficlet and thank you for your review, Ann!

I liked this story very much. My heart aches for poor Gemini ! You have captured his sweet character very well and I feel so sad for him ! Well done.
Author's Response: Thank you for your review Phoebe, glad I could make you feel for Gem, for some reason it seems to have become my mission in life these days... ;-)

Oh that was just perfect!!!! I knew you could write this just how it should be done. I loved it! Well done indeed. Thoughtful, and cleverly woven so that the realisation didn't seem too fantastical a leap. You nailed it.
Author's Response: Thank you! Glad you liked it *bows*
