It was interesting, to say the least, and a little poetic. I really, really like it, even though it really isn't something I usually read. *2 thumbs up* :)
I loved that, I thought it was beautifully written. I can see Turlough as a drug user, too, he would feel the need to escape if only internally.
Ooh, this is very well done. Great bit of AU, I really enjoyed it.
