While I like the idea of a renegade Makuta setting herself up as some sort of cult leader, I didn't agree with Gorast's characterization in this story. She didn't seem quite fierce enough.

Regardless, the writing was excellent and very enjoyable to read. I look forward to future stories, even if this one isn't made canon :D

I'm a sucker for stories about Makuta. This one had some really good ideas- the cult leader thing was awesome and really tied in with the Makuta craving attention and reverence- but something about it seemed... off. I think it may have been some of the words used in the dialogue; they seemed too casual sometimes, and Gorast and most (if not all) of the Makuta have a pretty formal way of speaking. Some of the scenes felt a little hurried through, too, and the descriptions of the illusions were quite short and blunt.

 

This one was really hard for me. I love the ideas and themes presented, it was just the details, like word choice in dialogue, that were holding me back from voting for it immediately. I can't say enough how much I liked the premise of this story, though. It's a great concept.

 

Oh, and I agree with the writer in their note at the beginning of the story: Gorast totally needs more characterization.
