Wow. I'm not sure what to say about this, except that it is incredibly powerful. Particularly the ending. It gave me chills. Tragically powerful writing.
Wow. I'm all about a hint of hope in the ending, but I can't say this wasn't wonderfully written.

WOW! A searing indictment of PCness and the fallacy of technology: just because something is possible doesn't mean that it is good.

Your writing is just astounding.

*cue twilight zone music. Rod Serling like voice* In a galazy far, far away. In a future not unlike or present, we experience what is, what will be and what has been. Will we ever look at pink the same again? Should we?

Oh, no! I hated this entry! It was horrible!!!! The worst sci-fi entry I've ever read!!! *note to self.* Change color to shades of blue and no one will know you stole the idea for your next novel.

Oh my this is grand!

Powerful and mastercrafted from start to finish!! Love it!
So much for seeing the world through rose colored glasses! You created wonderful scifi. Would a blue or green world be happier, you suppose?

Wow. Very well written. I could feel the MC's despair, in fact, it seemed to smother me there for a minute and when I came up to breathe I thought, "Whew. I'm glad this is fiction..." Great job!

Amazingly well written. Frightening and exceptionally mastercrafted. Wow.

WOW. That's pretty much all I can say to this. Enthralling somewhat, in seeing a world of pink, but haunting to see how it changes things and people. This is great. Good job. Awesome writing! ^_^
Excellent! So much creativity lies within this story, sharing a powerful truth in a very unique way.

The voice is fantastic, very strong. Great use of flashback through a journal and the dialect there. Well done.

Helen, I've been waiting all week to see who wrote this. Although disturbing, I thought it was wonderful and was disappointed it did not place. Still, congratulations on a job very well-done. Blessings, Teri
This was one of my highest rated entries. Quite compelling and frightening. This is classic sci fi by a master--powerful. Great work.

What an innovative, creative idea. I could feel the ennui of the place. What's the point, my soul cries? Wonderful writing, Helen. I enjoyed it very much. It was spellbinding.
