|Reviews for Bird of a Wing - Old version|
| dragonflight203 chapter 54 . 1/16
I can't tell if the earlier one I sent went through, so please forgive me if this is a double post.
Started out reading the updated version, and was very happy to find a completed, if older version on the works list.
I very much enjoyed it - the K'nairi actually feel like a different species which so often isn't case. The resulting conflicting and attraction between them and humans thus comes off as very rule. The characters also felt very real, and I'm very invested in them.
I was also glad to see a story where the humans abide by/reluctantly go along with the other species' customs, rather than the other species come around to the humans'. Most stories have it go the other way, but it's seeing how humans adapt to such different cultures which is what I find most fascinating.
Seeing how the this story contrasts with the new version was interesting, and I'm looking forward to see how they continue to remain the same and diverge. Thanks for putting all of this up!

So I just rushed through this all because it was just so interesting and wow you did an amazing job with fashioning the K'nairi! Their culture and heritage were nicely conveyed, and also can I just say that I love Ryraso from the depths of my heart.
I actually started out quite liking Nel and Dyn and not caring all that much for Tai-ray, but he really grew on me. And then the chapter with their past came along and suddenly Tai-ray was my precious bird man child and I just wanted him to be happy with Ryraso (and, okay, the mean streak in me wanted to make Nel and Dyn suffer just a little bit for their selfishness and for hurting both Tai-ray and Ryraso, so there was that.) A'wendo and Eyeri and Hyermi and Ran'mosy (I might have spelt that wrong), on the other hand, were my darlings. All your characters were so interesting, and they had each their own distinct personalities, it was great to read and learn about each of them.
One thing would be that there seems to be quite a large number of grammatical errors? Simple things, really, like spelling mistakes and such, but there's quite an amount of them. Also, there's a habit of not ending your quotations with the appropriate punctuations like a full stop or comma. Rather, they're just cut off abruptly, and it is a bit jarring sometimes.
Hm what else. So I loved the story very much, definitely going into my 'read again' list. What bothered me the most about this was that there ended being a lot of unresolved plot points, such as the entire war that's been going on and the issue of the Royal Quad's numerous romantic problems (ie Tai-ray and Ryraso, although loved, come off as being just an afterthought in Nel and Dyn's minds, even more so than this mysterious potential lover;

The resolution was a bit rushed and incomplete. Needs another 10 chapters or so! And a sequel.
