  1. Hey Christian,
    I gotta say, I am really impressed with your story! It was disorienting at first, which is what I am sure you were intending, but is was also very consuming. With every sentence I wanted to know more and to understand, to satiate the curiosity which stemmed from everything I read. One question which really stood out to me is who is the "God/god" is your story (you flipped on capitalization a couple times so I was unsure which you intended)? Is it the Judeo-Christian God or some god from another existing religion, or an amorphous deity outside of current religions? This may have been an intentional vague point in your story, if so you did great at conveying that! Another question I had was why 87 exactly, does that number hold some significance or was it random? So many questions that I want to ask and get answered! It really is an awesome story and I can't wait to see what else you have to write about!

    1. Hey Christian,
      I just came across the second installment on your story and I am still really loving the direction you are going with the idea! The Remembering story adds a lot of detail to the narrative and fleshes out many of the questions which were left unanswered I the first introduction. One note I will say. is that you changed for second person to first person between the Introduction and the Remembering story. I don't know if this was intentional, but I thought I would mention it. Another, similar note, is your spelling of God. in your story you spell it "God" but, typically, when the "G" is capitalized it is referring to the specific Judeo-Christian deity. If you are intending on referring to a god other than that specific deity, it should be a lower case "g" to denote it is not a proper noun for an individual entity. All that aside, this week we were supposed to be giving feedback on images, but there's not that much to give for your stories. I like the stylistic choice of a simple black screen for the Introduction, it adds to the unanswered ambiance of the tale. On the Remembering story, the only thing I would like to say is that I expected this tree to be much larger and majestic than the image given, based off the description you gave in your story. Overall, I still love the story and would love to see the next installment!

    2. Hey Christian,
      It's me again! You just keep coming across my randomizer, but I am grateful because I get to see this story develop each week! I loved the third installment and I feel it definitely answered a lot of question that your reader had coming in to that story. I much better understand how the character we are reading through the eyes of plays into the larger picture of this universe you have created. This week we are supposed to be focusing on Author's Notes, but there really is not that much to say. You have done a very good job at writing them so that you give your reader a good idea of where you are coming from and what your inspirations were for any particular story. This week I definitely did get a little bit of Genesis vibes from the story before I even read the Note; it distinctively bled through in the order of operations you described in creation. That said, I loved how the character just started pushing buttons and was thinking "well, surely I can't mess up creation that bad!" The little bits of humor in that really do keep the reader interested. Just one final note, there is still the issue of writing the first story in second person and the second and third stories in first person. This can be really discombobulating for readers and either needs to be addressed to explain your intention behind that or corrected so that this would be unnecessary. Overall, loved it and ready to see what happens next!

  2. Hi Christian!

    I loved the way you started out your story! It was compelling from the get go. I think the confusion of it all made me want to keep reading. I found myself curious as to where this story was leading. One question or comment to make on that is it was kind of confusing through out the intro and i kind of got lost in the idea if it was modern or not or who the main character was and why they were important and if other people from the previous universes were treated the same. I think that will probably all come to light in your stories and hopefully we get to learn more about your main character because I am very fascinated! I think the point of it was for it to be confusing and for the reader to ask a lot of questions and I love that it was a story that can be taken in any direction, I can't wait to find out what actually happens when you write your stories.

  3. Christian,

    This has to be one of the most suspenseful introductions I have read so far. I like how you're injecting the reader into the story by making them the main character. The physical feeling you're describing is something I would like to feel in my lifetime. Hopefully ZeroG trips or space trips are reasonably priced before I die haha. You might be missing a word in the 10th paragraph, second sentence.
    I had to reread this, as your use of pronouns demands attention. Good! I think it's great that your storybook is really requiring the reader to think about the unthinkable. This story will likely give people serious pause to think about their relation with whatever divine power they answer to.
    I'm excited to read the stories to come and even more excited to see the author's notes, as I think they will explain quite a bit.

  4. Christian! As someone who's seen The Egg, I loved your twist on it. I really enjoyed hearing the first person perspective from 'god' in the intro and then from the human-dude in the first story. It confused me for a sec that the perspectives switched, but I liked it. Your imagery is so good. I could feel the void and feel the fresh, comforting feeling of the meadow and the tree. Speaking of, the tree thing was super cool. So were all his other creations on there, not just 'humanity?' That's so awesome. I really liked how you made the main character living through alllll his past lives a bit overwhelming, giving examples of the different centuries and traumas he went through. So did he live through every single life like in The Egg, or were the other people truly other people and not just different versions of himself? I'm super stoked to see your other stories. This is awesome.

  5. Hi Christian!
    I haven't read The Egg, but I simply must now! So first, thank you for that!
    Second, I love the reimagining you've given to this story, particularly the idea regarding a world tree that represents all universes that have been 'trialed' in this sense. Really beautiful sentiment, one that resonates with my own storybook in a way. Also, the way you narrate the introduction was really vivid, as Kyra said. However, I was also a little confused as to why you switch perspectives between the intro and the first story. It was a little strange to switch narrators in that way. Perhaps if you want to maintain this switch, you could include some kind of transition between the two? Either at the end of the intro or the beginning of the first story, just to signal the transition to the reader more explicitly. Also, I really loved the last full paragraph, but I kept wondering to myself "What would this feel like?" Do you think you could elaborate on what this process of remembering felt like in a more phenomenal sense, what emotions, thoughts, physical sensations accompanied this remembrance of experience/mission?

  6. Hi Christian,

    I just came from reading your introduction and first story.

    First I must say that I really like the approach you took with your introduction. The second person POV you chose to use really works and every sentence made me want to keep reading. I think you've definitely perfected the introduction at this point.

    On your twist on The Egg, I'm a little bit jarred by the transition from second person to first person. You spend the introduction speaking to the reader in second person but your first story is entirely in first person. Is this an intended choice? If so the transition is definitely interesting and can work but I'm not entirely sure what you're going here with this POV swap. If it is intended maybe even just adding a quick note about it in the author's note would be super helpful!

    As for the actual content of your story, I think it's great! There was definitely not any lack of interest at any point in the story and that says a lot. I haven't read "The Egg," but after reading your story, I wanted to. I also really appreciate your twist on taking a perfect God and humanizing them by making them someone who makes mistakes and has to try again. Overall the whole concept is really cool and I'm excited to read more of your stories!

  7. Hi Christian!
    I think this is the first time I have ever read a story from the same perspective you took. The second person POV is an interesting move, but I enjoyed it! I feel like changing the perspective definitely adds to the mystery of the story and also makes you feel a slight disconnect in the beginning. I think if I had to live all the lives of humanity to become a god then I would much rather not. The fact that the main character has this deep-set feeling that they know the man who claims to be God just adds to the mystery. I was not expecting the office, but as you said, it makes it more relatable to the readers. The little note at the end of your second story was really fun! It's just what you would imagine someone thrown into the situation would write.

  8. Hi Christian! I love your website! I think the galaxy image is so pretty. I just really like space. Your stories were fascinating, and I really enjoyed reading them! I like how you used your introduction as part of the story instead of just writing what the reader should expect . It really helped draw me into the story. I also think you're a great writer. Good job!

  9. Hi Christian! I really like your story! Since we are commenting on Author's notes this week, that is what I will focus on in my comment, mostly. But I do want to say this story sounds interesting first! As to your author's notes, I think they are great! I like how you explain enough and give us the source material you use for each story. It helps with knowing context and stuff. I also like who you included your thoughts on how you wanted to make the stories out to be. It gives us insight to you as a writer and what you expect for your story. They were really good notes in that they answered all of my original questions and then left me with more! I can't wait to read the next installment of your story and how you plan to make the young god create the universe and shape human beings and then live in the universe he created. Thanks for all of your hard work!

  10. Hi Christian,
    I love your storybook! It’s creative and well-written, and the story really drew me in. It’s cool that you took inspiration from two pretty different sources, The Egg and Genesis. Your interpretation turned out really interesting. I’m glad I found your website once you had all your stories, because I definitely had a lot of questions! After reading the introduction, I wanted an author’s note that explained what source you used and what came from your own imagination. I’m glad there was one after the first story, because it was super trippy! The actual design of your website works really well too. I like the sidebar navigation, and I loved the font change when the main character was working on the computer. Finally, a couple semesters ago I took an astronomy class, so it was fun to see terms like “habitable zone” again. Overall great work!

  11. Hi Christian! This week's focus is on utilization of paragraphs, and I think your stories do that very well. For me, it's so hard to sit there and read one giant block of writing – I just can't do it, especially for stories in this class hahah. When I opened up your stories, I was relieved to see the story broken up into bite sized paragraphs – that's honestly the biggest factor for me when I look through story books every week to read. Besides your short paragraphs just being my preference that I look for in readings, you utilize them very well to break up the story yet make it still be one cohesive story that flows – it doesn't seem choppy. Overall, for your storybook, I think your topic is very interesting and your stories were very well written. I'll definitely be coming back to read your remaining stories for the semester. Good luck!

  12. Wow! I really loved your stories! I really loved the perception shift that you have with the young god showing how they become just as much everything as the older god. Reading through the creation of the universe is a lot of fun! Being a god in a universe without life truly must be lonely. I'm glad that they were able to set up a potential Earth 2.0. Hopefully, the humans on this Earth are just as interesting as the ones on the previous Earth. I feel that you did a fantastic job of showing us this story. I was definitely able to picture the young god as they interacted with their surroundings, and being just as out of the know as they were really helped to put me in their shoes. Though, I don't know what I would do if I woke up and had that told to me... It would definitely be a stressful experience.

  14. Be careful here, nobody can help you here or even suggest how you can get your ex or love back, any testimonies of most spell caster here must be ignored. Because most of them are scams, I mean real scam which I was a victim of and I got ripped off thousands of dollars because I was so anxious to get my Husband back after he left me for over 3 years with my 6 years old son Danny and 4 years old girl Betty. I have applied to 3 different spell caster here and all to no avail. They all ask for the same thing: send your name, your ex name address and picture phone number etc which I did over and over again and most of them were from west Africa until I saw a post about Dr. Yeye Osun and I decided to give her my last trial. Long story short, myself and my Husband are Back together for good now and we’re living fine and happy together again, if you’re passing through this in your relationship/marriage seek no further, as Dr. Yeye Osun is the solution contact her now: Drayabaoloyeerelu@gmail.com or visit: https://drayabasolutioncentre.webs.com/

  15. When I found Dr. Ben I was in desperate need of bringing my ex lover back. He left me for another woman. It happened so fast and I had no say in the situation at all. He just dumped me after 14 months with no explanation. I contacted
    Dr. Ben through his WhatsApp and He told me me what i need to do before he can help me and i did what he told me to, after i provided what he wanted, he cast a love spell to help us get back together. Shortly after he did his spell, my boyfriend started texting me again and felt horrible for what he just put me through. He said that I was the most important person in his life and he knows that now. We moved in together and he was more open to me than before and then he started spending more time with me than before. Ever since Dr. Ben helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before. I highly recommends Dr. Ben to anyone in need of help. Email: drbenspellcaster2@gmail.com,add him on whatsapp via: +2349055476554 FOR ANY KIND OF HELP..
