"Excellent writing!"
 
  
I have found a mark of a good story, and those listed here contain it.

When I finish reading a story and find myself almost sad that it is over, no matter the end of the story. Looking forward to more!!!! YAY!

   Actually, I've always found the mark of a good piece of writing to be a strange, sort of internal silence when I reach the end... sorta like the pause at the end of a really great performance, before the applause starts. Most all the Eyrie works fall into this category for me, although there's a couple that leave me scratching my head and saying "bwa?" ;)

-Michael, coming out of hiding finally
Did they beat the drum slowly, did they play the fife lowly?
Did rifles fire over you as they lowered you down?
Did the bugles sing the Last Post in chorus?
Did the pipes play the Flower of the Forest?

Same here, Dreamshadow. I've always enjoyed the stories of the Eyrie writers and I can't help but to feel a bit sad when a story ends. These guys are so good in capturing a readers imagination that I'm almost jealous of their talent. SIGH! Ah well, maybe one of these days my story will be out there, I just hope somebody reads it. And I'm definitely looking forward to Hunted Rose, can't wait!

Terrorist scum wanna battle hearty? Well so do I, c'mon let's party!
