Voting on this was tricky. Severine's was really well written but I didn't like the subject matter. DJ's was alright written, not as good as Severine's, but a lot happier.
DJ's story has the plot hole of 'why has the kid not found any easter egss before?'. But it at least ends on a happy note.
Severine's story is about a woman crucifying her son to make flowers grow. It's pretty nasty, and also very pagan in a Wicker Man sort of way.
So I ended up going with DJ's story. It's happy!

thanks for the lovely siggy sumi and Himeno^^ GUMI-ISM FOR LIFE BISHES!
Two very different pieces. It was odd to read one after another. CeeCees was very well written and very gruesome. DJ's was written well too, however not as much as Raine's. DJ's story was more enjoyable though, what with the happy ending and all.
Going to go with CeeCee. It's a dark and unpleasant plot but overall I thought it was the better piece.
DJs was good, a much brighter story more inclined towards the modern, commercial easter holidays.
Severines was also good, a closer nod to the origins of easter than the current day interpretation.
Both stories were well written and different, with pros and cons for each one. In the end, i voted Severine purely because i felt it was the better of the two.

OK so, i liked both, two different view of the same matter, interesting, ended up with DJ's one cause if you really want to be profane be sarcastic and let me think for a week. But great Raine, i wouldn't be able to write it in any case nor be so brave to post it in all honesty! *admiration*

I voted severine. I thought it was well written and cleverly done. Something I particularly liked was the structure. The paragraphs set out as they were, as small moments over an extended period of time, made me feel like I was looking through a pile of photographs.
I did enjoy dj desolates and it did make me laugh but I had to go with the way it was written.
welll, since she's summoning people here, I mght as well summon people of my own.

D: I liked both pieces...crap. ermmm
I liked Severine's piece a lot. I personally enjoy the darker theme when it comes to writing myself as it always has a way of fascinating me more.
But I did enjoy DJ's piece a lot as well. For a brighter piece I enjoyed it more than what I normally do.
Both were really well written but I think my vote has to go to Severine simply because as stated before I do enjoy darker pieces of writing. If it weren't for the different themes of light and dark though in the writings I probably wouldn't be able to choose to be honest
I don't know who to vote for! ^_^
Severine's was very well written, not particularly "eastery" (didn't Jesus rise on Easter? He died before that...no idea ^_^)
But DJ's was a nice fluffy story...
Hmmm...need to think ^_^
I love you more than anything angel! (Dedicated to Starsong)
