Default Re: Teaching novel...yay or nay?

I’ll give you a ‘yay’, fera. However, the story needs more characters. Some suggestions:

DramaWolf: the hero of the story. Lives in the mountains. Manly, rugged, impossibly handsome and speaks with a soft Scottish burr that women (and men and animals and plants) can’t resist. He gets the girl in the end. Obviously.

Mount Snow Leader: a wise shaman who holds the knowledge of the Ancient Ones. Lives in the icy wastes of the Northern Realm, and can expertly guide others through it.

Part-ManHuman: A wily shapeshifter who reads the way of the Tarot. Terrible taste in jokes, though.

RigidPose: a teacher of ethereal body movements, allowing her to flit through the forest unseen.

Feralninja: the wild fierce woman of the deep forest who communicates with all beings. She’s kinda the boss and can shut shit down if she wants to. No-one messes with feral.

Any room for these guys in the story….?

This is, without a doubt, the funniest and most uplifting thing I have read in a long time. Thank you. I was actually thinking of working both Monso and Rosie into it - seriously.



and hey - I'll take feralninja anyday! FEAR ME, lol!

I envision him as being crucial to the whole story.

Are you going to post it here on ESF Fera. That would be great.
