      Wow! So glad this got AOTD or I might’ve skipped it rather ignorantly.

      Fantastic! Love the poetry interspersing throughout.

      Damn. Imprints the transience and interconnectedness of life. Ken Liu has a way with deep values and emotions! I’d comment more, but that would be spoiling 🙃

      “Let us not speak of sad things. I love you.”

        Beautifully told. I’m a crusty old bird and not much can make me cry anymore. This story reached far far down into those well springs. Sometimes it’s good to cry. There’s a lot going on to cry about. Such imagination and understanding of love.
