I'm finally getting to read the rest of your updated chapters^^ Sorry, life's been throwing curve balls at me. Anyways, I'm not done yet I just thought I'd tell you I found a mess up in ch. 4 before I forgot.

When Sephtis comes across the man/woman in the hospital he's supposed to send to the afterlife I guess? (Not sure what you'd call his job. Saying he kills them seems a little too much, although he is death... Can you possibly clarify this for me?) But first you called the person a middle aged man, then you said 'the family must have decided it was finally time to take 'her' off life support' (or something along those lines) I was confused then thought you probably didn't notice it. Or maybe you did, I don't know XD Well I hope you continue the awesome, great job your doing to wright this story :) I was so happy to see you had two chapters updated^^ Anyways I've got to get reading!

Oh, two additional short things (I promise). First: in the third paragraph, I was unsure about the meaning of "sheer, beige dress." Second: otherwise, applause to the amazing character descriptions that perfectly fit them!

Interesting. The third chapter does bring a whole new light to the characters. Probing Lyvia's rhetorical question further, one can almost get to the fundamental question of "What do the gods do? How much of our life and will do they dictate?" Also, with your artful illustration of abortion and poaching, I wonder how you may describe topics like war, a mother dying after childbirth praying to keep her child alive and in good care, suicide, congenital deformities (ranging from easily curable to impossible), and the job of doctors. Are the actions doctors saving lives or people committing suicides threatening to shatter the precarious balance between life and death, or are they linked in some strange causality? I wonder how you may be navigating through these interesting themes.

This is so powerful. I am in mental shock at how deep and just... penetrating this piece is. You captured the emotion and reasons behind each side so well, and I'm left pitying both characters. The world is surely cruel. You deserve a follow for sure!
