Goodness. I’d read this book. It would be a lovely change from most fantasy books where kids battle evil etc etc – I’d love a married fantasy couple battling day to day life! This is really fantastic, if you end up writing this PLEASE dm me or put up a post and I’ll definitely buy it. Please do, even if you just serialise it bit by bit on here! I wear Red On Fridays Until They All Come Home Shirt Loads of awesome books started out that way, most early Asimov for instance. Seconding everyone clamoring for more. I’d even read a book about the mother-in-law discovering she has a talent for fairytale midwifery, idc. Your writing is absolutely enchanting. I love the subtle nods and foreshadowing, and MC’s horror at dragonwife being ‘near the end’ got me right in the feels. Hrk.

It was pretty unrealistic though, a wife that doesn’t like lying to her husband? Pull the other one. Just kidding. Actually I’d love to see that concept explored more. My wife doesn’t lie to me, inasmuch as she doesn’t knowingly make false statements about the past. I wear Red On Fridays Until They All Come Home Shirt She absolutely says she’ll do things in the future then doesn’t do them, but it’s not quite the same as lying, is it? And of course there are tons of ways to manipulate perception without outright lying. I’d love it if the dragon had like a super strong moral code against lying, ever (rather than “I don’t like lying to you babe”) but still used Exact Words all the time to alter perceptions. It is SUPER effective on people right up until they know that’s what you’re doing, then they start paying attention and asking more pointed questions and it all falls down. But it’d be really interesting to explore that dynamic of their relationship.

I hate to tell you this, but the closest thing I’ve seen is the “Raising Dragons” series, and it’s sequels. the premise is awesome, Merlin turned a bunch of dragons into humans to keep them safe from slayers and now the children of those dragons have to fight demons. But it’s really awful. It’s a christian proselytizing book where the only way the good guys keep winning is through the grace of god and his divine intervention. And the writing is god awful (pun intended) Ah feck. I wear Red On Fridays Until They All Come Home Shirt Got my hopes up and everything… sure, it’s not the end of the world. There was a great recommendation a little way up so I guess I’m going to be reading a lot about dragons in the next week or so, cheers! I liked it a lot! Although I’m older and wiser, it reminded me of simpler fantasy stories I loved when I was younger.
