Well, then, you've come to the right place, because Andrew is good at
that.  I'm *trying* to be okay at that.

I don't have detailed analysis.  But I enjoyed the story.  It has all
the good story elements, plus a nice fistfight with a faery.  What's
not to like?

I gather your character has history, because she comes from a
superhero campaign.  I admire how you skipped most of the history in
this story (- though I sometimes got confused by what was flashback
and what wasn't.

I joined RACC just last year, and started pumping in my own stories
that have massive HTML backhistory.  I can recommend that you not feel
intimidated, because...

As a reader, you're in control.  When a story has massive history, it
is the writer's job to convey it, not the reader's job to take heroic
measures to comprehend it.

As a writer, nobody here tries to pull rank based on whether they've
actually been paid to publish.  (Thanks for that, Tom, if you're still
around).  Absent any sort of career, rank is pretty much equal.  So
it's a nice support group for writers.

So, hello and welcome.
