Wow! I'm mindblown. This was a great little read, and you really have the entire concept down pat in just 900 words! This concept seems terrifying and a little thrilling. Did you figure out Leo's fate once you wrote this, or is that TBD?

I loved this IVM! You really bring out the human element in the sci-fi oh it all. Darn, I wish I was there to witness such an event! Great job!

Just saw your entry when I dropped by and started to read. I really enjoyed this. It felt like watching the two characters as they prepared for the match. Both lovely and interesting to know about. Great work Ivy!

This was awesome! Great details and characters. And I really, really want to see a sequel about their oncoming fight.  *puppy dog eyes*
