Review: 2016.287 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: The magic and the works of art are beautifully described. The story arc is complete.

Con: The story is simple with little action and zero consequences. It's also hard to believe a relationship could really develop between two people over such long spans of time based on such short notes.
