This is really just fantastic. It's got a very dreamy, surreal feel to it, and it's almost unlike anything I've ever read, I must admit. You've got talent for writing, that's for sure ^^ Your visuals were wonderful, and the idea overall was cute and at the same time just intriguing!

I really hope you keep writing stuff like this :)

"The moon is hanging from a string." That line immediately captured my attention.

"caked with the dust of the city". Beautiful. Brilliant. Magnificent. Fabulous. Extraordinary. Lovely. Intriguing- need I go on?

This is wonderfully written and I really do hope you continue. I am now following you.... so you BETTER continue, or else XD

OH... MY... GOODNESS!!! When I was reading this, I totally forgot who was writing. I KNOW that someday I'm going to see this at a bookstore in the childrens books aisle. SO AMAZING! No other way to describe it...
