    I know I hated question 2 because I couldn't find anything apart from personification.

    I just felt like I was ********ting and trying to be relevant tbh. My story I think is good in terms of using all the language/structural techniques and punctuation but it's only relevant to the question about discovery at the end. And the discovery was very short so it wasn't like really well linked to the question
