Title: as small as a world and as large as alone
Original text(s) erased: Far From His Home
Erased by: xenoamorist @ momentane
Original text by: be_themoon
Fandom (of original text): Supernatural
Fandom (of erasure): Supernatural
Notes: Liberal amounts of added punctuation; only a couple of added words to make sure the grammar flows. Title from "maggie and milly and molly and may" by E. E. Cummings. I may make art for this, if time permits after the semester ends.

I somehow turned an epic and otherworldly story about angels, war involving angels, and the strangeness of having a physical body into a Dean/Castiel story of Castiel slowly becoming human and coping with what that means—I hope that's okay, be_themoon.

Oh, Cas. I love it. Very cohesive story, and I love the image of God in this poem.

Thank you! ♥ I'm glad the story came through, and I did enjoy tweaking the line to make a God with a different appearance than the usual. :D

This is really neat. I especially noticed the parts in parentheses, which seem to tie all the sections together. I'm also fascinated by how you play with spacing here, especially in part v. Some of these words are just lists, which really works with the feeling of disorientation. Awesome job!

Thank you! I love parentheses in poetry, haha. And weird spacing. I sort of have a thing for E. E. Cummings, which probably shows.
