Short and sweet.
In its shortness it was precise and lovely, and in its sweetness it was gut-wrenching and heart-warming
This is a story in part about duality; snow itself is beautiful, but it is cold to the touch. The story chills you and warms you, and the warmth is made more wonderful by the chill, like drinking hot chocolate after a day out in the cold.
The aspect I was most impressed with was the way the story concisely captured the essence of the feeling of snow. A story which, with every word makes you feel the FEELING of the title deeply, is cold and lovely, quiet and sad.
Criticism: The story is gripping, in a way which speaks to the lovesick teen in us; only a youth's eyes could see a character which is entirely without flaw. A character who is perfect is without depth. They will be confined to the rose-tinted fiction of the page, and never apply in a universal way to the lives of the readers. This can be hard to do in such a short format, where character development is already so minimal. I would have included one memory where she was showed to be not so stunningly, dreadfully, perfect, and then loved her anyway, loved her more.

As I began reading the story I was digging the style of your fragmented and vaguely connected bits of memory. I wondered briefly if it would get any more detailed, and was starting to think as I moved forward in the story that it wouldn't and that I would be disappointed because of this. You proved me wrong though, the emotions in this story, especially towards the end, were fantastic. Excellent use of the sites formatting. Well done.

I actually gave this an 8. A brilliant piece of clean writing. It manages to set mood in such a short amount of time, and really made me care about the characters. The romance was just that - romantic - without seeming forced or cheesy. Very clever, too, how the story is structured. Excellent, effective way to develop the characters. I really liked this.

Uh, it doesn't really have a story. It is just showing some guys memories. It ended kinda sad though. It wasn't great.

It was terrible. Horrible sad and deathly. DO NOT READ IT THIS BOOK. It is about a girl who dies. A guy loves her and dies too, but is having so much fun he doesnt realize it. It sou d okay, but please, if you care for your happiness, don't read this. It is super creepy. I have nothing good to say about it.

I played this 5 times to see if I could save her but you can't. If you can someone please tell me.

I would describe this story as "cozy". Because it's so short, you don't get to know and feel for the characters, but I'd say the story's pretty good considering it's length.

That is an good example for how just a few words can have a big impact.
We learn as good as nothing about the characters, but their relationship.

Somehow I did not miss anything.
