Quintessential

Posted by A Drop of Romeo at 9:20 PM
Elliot's pretty sure his temperamental flat mate, Quinn, has a problem with him. But since he likes to call himself a pacifist, he'd rather watch MythBusters than find out why.

Helen Thinks: Chalk and cheese is the only way you can really describe room mates, Elliot and Quinn, in this story written by 'The Milk Bottle'. However, in good old fashion, opposites attract and their acquaintanceship works - Quinn is the silent brooding type whereas Elliot is the type to get himself into trouble by talking too much. They're fine going about their separate worlds, only colliding when they meet up together for breakfast and when they're at work, until one day Elliot sees something that he really shouldn't.

Thanks to The Milk Bottle's incredible writing, 'Quinntessential' introduces two flawed protagonists that a reader can both build a rapport with and relate to, especially through the progression of their characteristics throughout the story. Each minute emotion described as the story unfolds, their relationship changing between acquaintanceship to friendship and the pain of their life changing decisions can be felt by reader; whether it anger, joy or even the awkward tension that naturally bristles between the the two males. These aspects of the story are delivered so flawlessly and with steady progressions, they're perfectly realistic allowing a reader to fall in love with it.

“Quinntessential” is still a work in progress, but it's a story I recommend adding it to your alerts list because no one, including me, wants to miss how it ends...
