Okay, the first chapter has now been posted, along with the three times revised Prologue. I also used your advice and added a few more things, though I'm still not sure how to make sense of the first two sentences.
I never wanted you to remove any of your posts in the first place as it makes me have to go thru the trouble of editing my posts to editing out responses to, about, or concerning someone and I really hate doing that.
I'm sorry but instead of coming off like dude sorry for the mistake, my bad. you come off as Oops I came off as an *** but I'll just go and hide it and try to make nice nice and just. Ug.
I've read a couple books with strong female leads- but I've forgotten what they were lol. Everything seems to just slowly deteriorate into male > female. Very few things I've read or watched kept a female lead strong, or didn't punt her to the side.
Like Dragonrider's of Pern, before it got to sue-ish in later versions. There's one real ***** of a character, Leesa I think her name was.
Then her son got paired up with you guessed it, classic rape sue. /sigh.
Basically when a person bonds with a dragon in the pern world it's like a soul bond, rider dies, dragon dies, dragon dies, rider usually dies or lives on half dead. So it's like ****ing duh if you're a woman you're gonna bond with one of only 2 female dragons. The gold. Or the green. She bonded a green and they're like cats DD
and it's like /facepalm and I gagged and never read a newer work again.
