    An interesting interpretation. I can tell you read it and I thank you. I'm sorry you found it "slapped together".

    I chose to keep a single perspective since the last time the queens met I told the story from Dawns point of view. I find it interesting to explore how people perceive each other vs. how they see themselves. I am also interested in the 'unknowableness' of others.

    As a stylistic choice, I prefer to let people read between the lines than spell things out. I'm interested in the use of inferrance and implication, going back to my interest in the unknowableness of others. I am happy to see that you read between the lines quite easily and your story reflects that. It also suggests that my efforts at inferrence were successful and I didn't really need to spell it out for you to get the point.

    Thanks for taking the time to give feedback, I do appreciate it. I don't claim to be some kind of authority on writing in general, I just write stuff the way I like to read it.

    Your tag says you are in Iraq, be well and stay safe. :)

    Oy, I've gotten a lot of grief off that mascara! You should have seen my first draft, I wrote her as straight up Cruella Deville but Cal put the kabosh on that. Anyway, I think it's fine if Minax wants to wear Mascara. I think she's kind of sexy for a cugar. Heh.

    Renyard, I was not offended. I've been criticized on this forum much more strongly than that. Heck, I've had a person calling for my job. Anyway, God's speed on your trip home and I appreciate you guys over there. You all make America the kind of place where people can play UO without worrying about a car bomb going off and I thank you.
