I've been following the story since about the second chapter, so I have that false sense of familiarity that comes from reading discussions between internet personae over the course of several weeks. I always feel a bit creepy once it dawns on me that I'm recognising other people by the nuances of their character and they don't even know I exist [not to mention mentally attaching personalities to icons... I think the cheez-its did a lot to jolt me out of lurking ] . So it's about time that I finally step in and say hello.
I tend to file away personal details on the 'trivial' heap, so I'm not very good at introductions. I also tend to do the same thing with opinions and responses, so I'm not great at comments either unless I've been prompted for one.
What I can say is that I greatly enjoy the world building and history that MeiLin has included in this story, as well as the realism of her characters, and I certainly appreciate the maturity with which the steamier aspects are handled, even if they're not the main thing that keeps me coming back for each installment. I'm sure I'll be following for quite a while, and hope not to be too much of a stranger from here on out.
