So...I really loved the idea of this story. It was creative and fun and wasn't like anything I've read before.

But I didn't particularly get what the deal with the buttons was. I mean, I know that each button stood for different emotions and pressing one would make the person feel the indicated emotion; I just didn't get WHY. Why buttons in a metal box on a lightpole? It just seems a little...inconsistent and random. Like, if these worlds are supposed to be the minds of people, shouldn't what controls the people's emotions be something that would be in their minds and differ from person to person or at the very least be something that he actually carries with him? I don't know; maybe it's just be. OTL

Anyway, other than that, I thought this was pretty good.

Congratulations on winning the contest! This was a very well-written piece. The beginning bit about thunderstorms and human emotions was a nice set-up for the rest of the story. I also liked that you didn't try to make the reader sympathize with the super villain as other pieces for this contest did. I enjoyed the way the environment changed with each new color button he pressed which corresponded to that emotion. Once again, well done!
