wow...this is one amazing story. i think there was a part where you had a discrepancy with the tense and you switched from past to present...other than that, i found this to be a really thought-provoking piece. wonderful job! :)

I thought this was really intriguing, the idea is very unique, and it is well thought out. I love the title too, it says rebellion. I got a little confused sometimes, I'm not sure if there were tense changes that threw me off or what, but somethings confused me. But other than that I thought it was fantastic!

Wow, That was fantastic! You certainly have quite a talent, and a definite knack for making an amazing character with amazing characteristics and backstory. The plot was so sweet and...nostalgic. It reminds me of an old child hood friend I had, who became someone like Samantha. In a way, this feels like it draws from Stephen King and how he approaches his development of characters by making them realistic and giving them unique qualities. It makes the character into something familiar that we can all relate to.

I honestly don't have any particular negatives to say about this. I actually thought the beginning was a little hard to grasp, like I got a little confused with what you were talking about, but then again it's 11:30 and I'm dead tired right now, so it's probably just me. Anyway once again great job :)
