As I read through this, I tried to determine what it was about your style of writing that I really liked. You don't just have a homogenous set of words for the same action. You use 'shrieked,' 'snapped,' and 'hissed' to vary your individual actions so they are unique in themselves.
I have to admit that when I write my next chapter of anything, I'll be emulating what you do. That's a talent that I appreciate, as do others.
This chapter was excellent and I really enjoyed what you came up with. I should post to everyone that I've updated SiD, but no one seems to demand it like they did your fic. Great chapter, worth the wait.
