[swap for The Sorority Code] This actually gave me shivers. Such a fantastically unique concept; I had my doubts, but you most definitely delivered. The ending line was the best. Great work and, whatever you do, don't stop writing :)

This was brilliant. Honestly, I thought that the concept was genious. I could really feel character growth in this story...well I guess bacteria growth instead of character growth. Hhehe, get it? Bacteria growth?
Your writing was flawless and I almost wished that they could be together. Wonderfuly story!

This is one of those ideas that I am like... How in the world did you come up with something so unique and amazing (like the Hunger Games for instance). I loved this so much. I thought that it was great and I really like the way that you choose to describe things. I really really like your writing. Amazing job! Keep writing! :) - Sabrina

This is was a fantastic idea! I don't even know how you came up with the idea for this! I was immediately drawn in by reading your description, and then, when I started the story,I literally couldn't stop reading until the end. The way you characterized the disease was pure genius, and you did it so well. I especially loved how you described what it sounded like for the disease inside her while everyone talked to her. It's weird to say this, but it made me feel present in the story. You did a great job on this, truly! It was ana amazing piece!
