aaahhh, fun. i think that was the first place i saw it but i didnt know that was actually what it was from.
[spoiler alert] man, i fuckin' loved that fic. ...probably the only serious fanfic i ever actually liked, come to think of it. really, i'm kinda annoyed it was a fanfic at all, if it was just it's own story it'd probably be up there at the top of my list of favourite horror stories generally. though there was one thing i didn't get- at the end, when she asked to have her love of music erased, i could never figure out the reason for that... rather significant plot point. any ideas?
The reasoning as I interpreted it was that she was satisfied with her lot in life. By removing her love of music she wouldn't try to go back and try again. Not that she could have after giving the Nightbringer, but she is... rather determined despite impossibilities.
Having given all she possible could and still having come up short she was okay with the fact that she was doomed from the start. Without the music then she then could move on and simply live.
