I really enjoyed reading this! I liked your use of scripture to back up Valentine's arguments. I wasn't sure about your portrayl of Claudius - he came across as almost reasonable in giving Valentne chances. I thought Claudius might also make an issue about himself being divine.
Wow! I really have enjoyed the creative historical accounts of Valentine! Excellent!
Great use of dialogue! I like how you incorporated atmospheric elements into the verbal exchange. These characters really came alive for me.
Very creative and well written! Way to go!
very nice portrayal of St. Valentine.
Very creative and historical approach.
Well written. I, too, enjoyed this legend and I almost wrote a story from the viewpoint of a couple Valentine secretly married. It would have gone well with this story! :-) Good job!
Each take on the saint has been uniquely different. I like this one for its immediacy: first person point of view and the rain takes me there! And the convincing interraction between the characters.
I enjoyed this piece. It gave me a piece of history I was not familiar with. The dialogue and the inclement atmosphere added authenticity to the story. Well done!
Yikes! This one had me shaking in my boots! Congratulations on your win! I loved being able to enter into that awful period from the safety of the desk chair! Congratulations on your win!
Congratulations, Lisa. You need to update your profile -- "beginning writer" doesn't sound appropriate in conjunction with your submissions. Keep the stories coming, and you'll have a string of "wins". Great job!
