The Real LJ Idol: No One Can Ride Your Back If It's Not Bent  
You look out over the yard where Vitore is showing off to the pregnant girl she rescued from the streets, weaving the light of the fading sunset into a swirling cloak of sunfire sparks around her: entertainment rather than destruction.

You're both jealous and proud. She's truly living up to her namesake in spite of the fact that she now knows the darkness that birthed her into this world. And she stands far taller than you ever did when you came to terms with that nightmare. She seems still determined to prove that Willer doesn't have to mean weapon or exotic toy like the scientists intended, but that it could mean something more like hero, helper and entertainment by choice.

Your whole family of choice has always been doing that. All of you for the past few years have been building bridges and growing hearts where others would simply turn away and close their eyes to the differences that mark you as other: superpowers, gender nonconformity, and various forms of disability.

There's not a lot of context here, but your imagery is good, the emotions hitting in all the right places.

As the previous reviewer mentioned, there's not a lot of context here, but I think that's what makes it work so well for me. I love being given the bare bones of something, particularly with a reliance on imagery, and you've done that so well here in so few words.

Yeah, I'm a bit lost with no context, but something seems nice about this entry.

I like the way that the meanings of the words can be changed to help the people the names are applied to.

I wish there was more..the words really build up the mystery...giving lot to imagine.

You had interesting imagery. The story made me want to know more about what was going on in its world.
