I'll vote yea on this one. I like the twist, and the general storybookish style is a nice change from the usual around here.

Nice choice of cards for the vote choices, too.

Okay, I liked this and I'm going to vote Yea on it, but I also didn't write notes down back when I read it a few weeks ago and I don't want to go back over it right now. I think there had been one little niggle I had? I'm not sure. My mind is so scattered right now. It's a good piece, either way.

Hey, I actually read something! And I really liked it!

Minor nitpick: I believe it would be better to use "receptacles" instead of "recipients".

And hey, I figured there was a twist, but I was totally wrong about what it was (I thought the Lady was originally a dragon). So kudos on surprising me.

I'm easily willing to give this a Yea.

"Receptacles" is more accurate, thank you. Damn false friends.

I mean, that is a part of it, but it's only implied, both by the Lady's description and Raiker's poetic justice: she was a dragon and turned human, so it's only fitting her lovers undergo the reverse transformation, right? :)

:evil:

Oh, right. That makes sense. I like it. Very Raiker.
