There's not much you can do in 1k words with an idea like this one, but I would've liked it if the fic gave at least a couple more crumbs instead of being as vague as it is. I don't want to have everything spelled out, it's just a little thin on the story, imo.
That's less important, however, than the main part of the fic; the tree descriptions are really nicely written. Like always, Filly's fics are all gloomy and pessimistic, but the sense of personality in each of the M5 trees is quite strong, and it really makes AJ (and, indirectly, you) feel their presence. AJ's emotions are also shown very well. Grief, especially.
