Chapter 11: Chapter 11
Ah, what an interesting chapter! The interactions between Mina, Sapphire, and Eulalia were sweet, and I'm quite a sucker for friendlier relationships. It's nice to see how Eulalia's already come to accept her tiny daughter's choices, whether she agrees with them or not.
And of course there's the next part, the appearance of other such folk... a very interesting twist, and not one I would have expected! I especially like how prepared they seem to be; even despite the one major accident, the fact that they seem prepared to recover from that too is a welcome surprise. It's my own personal bias for sure, but I feel like in such situations, it can be a little too easy to just let one get "sacrificed" for little purpose other than indulgence, when it otherwise has no bearing upon the plot. Having it be a (presumably) non-fatal encounter serves in this way to show off the fae-folk's ingenuity and resourcefulness, as well as still showing off the dangers they face at such size.
And yes, it's still a nice bit of indulgence, I won't deny nor complain about that. :P But it's good to see it included in a way that - at least by my own view - is tactful with regards to the plot. But I'm wandering off onto a different topic.
All in all I've been enjoying this whole story a lot, the mix of danger along with what is ultimately gentle and lighthearted. Of course I have no idea what twists and turns you might have in mind, still, but regardless, I've enjoyed what's been written. :)Author's Response:
Yes, this story mainly exists for self-indulgence of my fantasies but I've done my best to balance that with the plot. Glad you appreciate it.
I'm also glad you liked the Eulalia section. I was unsure about it. Eulalia took a rather progressive view for the 1800s and I wasn't sure if it was believable. But I couldn't see her rejecting Mina after they were finally reunited.
