Everything else was built upon that foundation, so I enjoy the fact that you found those to be the things that made my entry unique.
As for my writing style, thanks for the compliments there. I understand exactly what you mean about the violin, and the sound-based metaphor is another neat thing for you to bring up. When writing this entry I had a particular voice in mind that I tried to match it to, to make it fit that voice. The voice in particular that I was working with was that of Michael Gambon, best known as the man who played Dumbledore in all but the first two Harry Potter films. The inspiration for using his voice came from an episode of Doctor Who, a Christmas special in which he was a main character and the narrator. I liked his voice for narration so much that I tried to emulate it as best I could in text through style and tone. I don't know if I succeeded in that exact goal, but I'm happy it was something noticed and appreciated either way.
