Hey there! :3
Name: Molly, Mars, or MJ
Favourite Genre: I prefer to write Tragedies, as I find that putting characters through turmoil generally helps me to characterise them better. Sometimes (very rarely) I also write Romance, but this is generally in drabble form rather than chaptered form.
Hobbies and Interests: Other than reading and writing, I play the piano and sing. I also draw, and draw a lot of mock-ups for my cover art and sketches of my characters!
Favourites: Colour - blue; Animal - dolphin; Book - Shock of the Fall by Nathan Filer; Series - Harry Potter; Season - Autumn; Song - currently, its Rihanna's Dancing in the Dark
Other: I have ADHD so sometimes it takes me a long time to work on writing. But it's my love, so I will always get around to it. Also, feel free to talk to me about characters! (Disclaimer: I will most likely talk your ear off if you ask about my OCs.)

Thank you very much for your comment!
I'll reply to both of your comments here, in the name of efficiency, but I'm delighted that you, for the most part, enjoyed the opening chapters (especially considering your own body of work on SparkaTale). I know dystopia is a crowded genre right now but I'm glad the information wasn't forced, that you could get the sense of the dystopian landscape in the background.
1. In relation to what you said in regards to Ian's mother, you're absolutely right. I went back over it again & it does seem a bit contradictory. I'll add in a word or two, perhaps allowing her to say 'I'm ready now.' instead. I wouldn't have spotted that if you hadn't told me, so thank you!
2. As for your second comment, which was also a valid point, I'll add more information to explain just why synthethics are created. Some of created to accomodate parents who lost their children, definitely, but they are also created for people who lost their uncle, aunt, grandparent, grandfather, parent etc (not restricted to just children/teenagers) or maybe even perhaps to clone a living sibling. That would set up an interesting dynamic where the cloned copy of an existing person would recieve much more abuse & distrust than their original counterpart, almost like twins where one is more highly valued than the other. Another thing I will definitely add into my work in due course.
I would also like to stress, of course, that sythethics weren't created originally to live among the general population...but you'll understand once you keep reading (if you plan on doing so ^^'
I'm working on the final chapter now, which will leave things open for its inevitable sequel, then I will work on removing all the grammar mistakes (I wrote 'threw' instead of 'through', can you believe that?!) & tweaking the characters themselves.
But again, thank you very much for your comments & critiques!
