Oh my gosh

I haven't finished it yet, but oh my gosh

To be completely frank, I didn't have very high expectations; previous experiences with romantic fanfics are probably to blame.

But this is freaking awesome!

Ahhh!!!

Amazing writing.

Absolutely.  Spelling isn’t my strong suit.

Highmarshal (not High Marshal)

Soulcast (not soulcaste)

Accuracy note: Kaladin wouldn't call it a depression group. They didn't really know about depression, and didn't have a name for it.

Those are the only ones I remember right now (I just finished it.) I don't think there were any really big problems.

 

I like it. It's sweet. (but sadly will probably never come to pass)

Spoiler

When Elebet took off her glove I got really weirdly self-conscious of the fact that my left hand was in fact not covered and I awkwardly hid it in my flannel...in the middle of my math class.

LOL!  I am sorry if I made you uncomfortable in math class.

Thanks!!!  I don’t have beta readers or an editor, lol, just spell check, which isn’t always my friend.  I will reread and hunt the places to correct.

And I am afraid something like this won’t come to pass, either, which is why I had to write it myself.

No, I just thought it was kinda funny that my brain would do that...

Exactly. That's the most conscious I've ever been of my left hand, it was weird.

Why would she take off her safehand glove in the stable (instead of a room where people couldn't just walk in) after the whole thing about her not feeling comfortable without a safehand earlier in the story? Were they in one of the stalls? Why would she act that way before they were married, after the whole thing with her history, her slave brand, what it meant, and how people reacted to it?

I think it feels ... odd... for her to do that. Odd enough for it to bug me a bit, not odd enough for me to hate the story.

They were in the floor of Cap’s stall, down where no one could see.  She took the glove off to show him she was comfortable with him because he had asked her if she was going to be comfortable with a man (after having been violated by her former master).  And I confess, it’s my fantasy to tangle my bare fingers into Kaladin’s hair.

Okay. This makes sense now. Thanks!

Didn't she take off her glove before he asked that tho? You know what I'll go check.

Edit: Nope! I'm wrong. Also I obviously missed stuff the first time I read it and should probably go reread the bits I'm going to poke at before I poke at them.

I apologize for any inconvenience, anger, or confusion I caused with this.

Suggestion:

Quote

“That young man deserves a happily ever after if anyone on this rock of a world does.  For now, we hope for an ever after.”

What if it said "... For now, we hope for an after." ? Good, bad, or horrid?

LOL!  I just appreciate you reading it!  Thanks for caring enough to question.

Maybe…..  That just seems implied to me.

I meant the suggestion for how it sounds, how it flows. And the "good, bad, or horrid?" was for the suggestion.

Also: I can't do anything with the Apple document. May I copy your book into a Google doc and suggest changes there? My changes will be a different color than the actual text is.

Sorry, I set it so no one could change it but me.  You are welcome to make suggestions to me here.

All right. It (edit:) might (end edit) be a LOT tho.

Quote

She had her fingers—both hands bare—between her throat...

Good job finding this opening.

Quote

... her throat and two ropes that...

Suggestion: ... her throat and the two ropes that...

Quote

ropes that were noosed around her neck

Suggestion: Try "looped" instead of "noosed."

(I needta go do homework now)

Noosed implies the strangling effect.

I'm sorry. For some reason I thought noosed wasn't a verb. I looked it up and it is.
