TWD - Chapter 14 - kais 05/22/17 4769 words (S*)

TWD may be skewing more dark fairy tale than dark fantasy. Unsure at this point. Anyway, here is the final glacier installment!

Edit: whoops, sorry everyone! Forgot there was a kissing scene in here. S* for kissing and some mention of breasts.

Comments. (Aw, man – I've got to type these out again instead of just keeping them in-line tracked changes).

  • “and the density from all those glacial conversations” – I don’t quite follow the train of thought here. Is ‘density’ the word you meant? Just a bit tortured, maybe.
  • “the coarseness of the scabs” – where are the scabs? Bit confused.
  • “She lowered her hand back to my hip” – I know what, you mean, but I think you need the words when it’s a specific thing (the hand) that’s being lowered. However you could probably get away with ‘she returned to my hip’, which could be her attention.
  • “reveling in the how much”
  • “might have been a beaver’s house” – shouldn’t you call it a lodge?
  • They’ll be an inn tonight” – there’ll
  • I enjoy Sor being tempted back to fungi
  • I like the emergence of detail about the negotiations.
  • Ooh, nice stinger at the end of the chapter.

There’s lots of good stuff in this chapter, and lots of it links into earlier themes and references; very satisfying. The ‘breaking’ of the tension between Sor and Mag is also a relief. I feel like there’s a point where you can take sexual tension too far, and the reader gets p’d off, in a bad way. I think this timing is good.

- The first line could be a bit tighter, maybe "Morning brought sun, but not heat."

- I like that Sorin is struggling to throw off alchemy, even by just noticing what the fungi. It's a really subtle take on temptation.

- I also really like the stinger at the end.

It is tortured, isn't it? I'll play around with better words.

Yes this! One can only take so much before something has to give. Unfortunately, the next chapter doesn't have it give in a great way. Thank you so much for the comments!

Solid. Editing.

Thank you! It's hard to throw off what you've worked your whole life towards. Thank you, as always, for the comments!
