I'd like to hear my options, so I could weigh them, what do you say?
Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

Ooh, I loved the worldbuilding in this one.  Are the details here based on an existing mythology, or were they made up just for this story?

Mur, I'd love to see a longer story or even a novel in this world.  It sounds really cool.  And since the earth-powered assassin is still alive at the end, there's a good antagonist right there.  Or protagonist, it'd be cool to find out more about his backstory.

This was an awesome story, fantastically read! I, too, would love to read more in this world -- I'm a sucker for stories that give good Elemental Magics.

Brilliant story. Such rich world building in a very short story, without skimping on the plot or characterization. I'd echo the call for more in this world except that I'm worried that that's messing with perfection.
