This was the most commented on story submitted for the second ePub. Everyone agreed it was a solid story but lacking in emotional development, detail and an ending deserving of all the build up. I think you got a lot of good feedback on this one. Go to Comment
Ok just so some of you don't get the wrong idea, I'm not deragened , don't own a gun and have been talking to Scras on FB about this and he told me he loves it. I'm afraid this might have been a little too good at what I was trying to do. Go to Comment
The ruling family depends on some magical artifact or place to secure their right to rule. A monarch isn't considered legitimate until he or she has been "accepted" by the artifact or place, whatever that might entail. It is also possible that some one else, not of the ruling family, could be accepted as the legitimate heir... A fact which the monarchs would like to keep secret.
