I mean /seriously/.
You taken what could have been a good book with weird supernatural beings and culture, and then you morph it into a straight-gay journey for our protagonist.
He's college age. He's not homophobic. It's the United States in the 21st century. The chances that he's discovering a whole new side to his sexuality, or that he's "coming out of the closet" and didn't even know he was in it. /The chances of it/. They're astronomically low. And then he starts discovering it with an alien-thing? And we're already dealing with astronomically low probabilities with the whole statue/alien thing happening. Too many unlikely coincidences.
If he'd started out gay, this could have been a good book. I WANTED it to be a good book. I really, really did. But I started reading this book on the assumption that the /slash/ would be background to the adventure, and that both characters would be, you know, actually gay.
Instead it turned an "Adventure" into a 'gasp, I like boys, wait that doesn't make sense, but his lips *eyelid flutter*' where neither character is even aware of their feelings. But it still gets more screen time and more in depth writing than anything else.
Next time put "Angst" or "Romance" or "Drama" as the first code. The only adventure here is an overly dramatic and stupidly angsty adventure of human sexuality. This is not how people discover they're gay/bisexual.
Just because 99% of the stories on this site involve men desperately trying to fuck each other, but are cock-blocked by angst and plot devices, doesn't mean that has to be what your story was about. Why, they could have been fucking each other since day two! The dramatic build to the pinnacle of sex could have been the dramatic build to the resolution of conflict! Oh well.
Good luck in the future.

Hey there! I'm so glad you updated! I love this whole story so much. And I just adore Alan, he's an awesome character, so full of personality. You actually manage to always create amazing characters that I just can't help but love. Keyd, Rysa, Kir... all of them.
I'd like to know the name of the story you're publishing so I can look it up.
And I really wish you would publish the whole Light and Shadow series; I'd totally buy it. Seriously, I'd love having this story in my shelf. It's such a wonderful and magical story!
Thanks for sharing!
P.D: I also hope you'll publish some more about Saul and Vaun. God, I really want to read about Saul visiting Vaun's house :)

Ehm, That is all.

AAAA I'm so excited!
I think Rysa should carry Law off into the unknown because he is indeed a sweaty ballsac.
I also hope that Alan absolutely decimated Ahieel and he is dead but, I sort of doubt that since... Well, I just didn't expect the 'weak' protagonist to be able to do more than two warrior aliens, right...

I'm sorry to hear that your health isn't the best, and I hope you get better as fast as possible. Alas, I am a poor poor college student and need to be fiercely budgeted, elsewise I would def help out.

Ahh I love this story so much! I'm a bit of a lurker, I've been keeping and eye on this since you posted the rewritten version but have yet to review till now. I just wanted you to know how much I've enjoyed this story so far and always eagerly await updates. I'm sorry to hear about your poor health, and I've signed up to donate a small amount each month (I'm just a poor student :P) How many chapters left of this story? And will you be rewriting the other books in the series? Thank you for posting!
