Crown of Love banner made by Tkegl

oOOo

I received a wonderful surprise late Sunday night. It was a message from Tkegl, a highly talented writer. She mentioned that she had made a banner for Crown of Love. I was delighted to receive such a lovely message from her. Even more, I was touched and moved that she had spent time in making such a wonderful gift. This merely served to remind me that there are truly some wonderful, generous souls in the fandom.  

Thank you Tkegl. You made my day.

Crown of Love banner made by Ange de’laube

Crown of Love was picked for 2nd Place Judge’s Choice in The Jukebox Contest. The wonderful Ange de’laube made this banner and I’m grateful for it and to her; she is a tremedously busy woman and I find myself wondering how she juggles everything.

Gothic Temptress , a highly talented writer whose writings I’ve followed avidly, wrote an eloquent review for Crown of Love in the Wayward Pushers Blog. It has left me humbled. Here is her review:

2nd Place Judge’s Choice:  Crown of Love by mephis1

Summary:  What happens when she returns to remind several friends, who are scattered to the four winds, that it’s time to go home? “They say it fades, if you let it”.

The poetic beauty and the dark tone of this story captivated me from the very start. As each scene unfolded, I became more ensnared in Bella’s lurid motivations and cringed as she achieved her revenge.

By the end of this beautifully written story, I found myself rooting for her. I especially loved the final scene between the two separated lovers, the couple reunited beneath a romance consisting of the darkest complexity.

mephis1 was able to craft a story that was frightening and captivating. Even in death, Edward’s features are peaceful. I felt the same, when I finished reading this story. I felt as though he was finally able to wear his crown of love, and so might she. The author made me believe that it was exactly as it should be, and that we should feel peaceful too. It was superbly done!
