This is unsettling, slightly creepy, and very insightful. I like how you made her head full of silence, as a counterpoint to his head being full of sound. Well done.
Author's Response: I\'m glad you appreciated my story. In particular, I\'m really pleased that you got that, \"unsettling, slightly creepy,\" element that I was definitely trying to capture. And when it came to her head being full of silence, it\'s so good to hear that you liked that. I had been somewhat concerned that that might come off as a little cheesy, like it was built too much off of the Master, but I really thought there had to be something hidden, some key to Lucy that kept the Master\'s attention. Really glad you seem to think that worked. Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a review. I really appreciate it. -Muse
