I almost killed him

ALMOST.

but decided to give him some character development instead. :D

In other news, I’ve finished writing Shaxia, book 4 of the Natan Fleet Show. I’ve just got to edit out 10k words and then it will be done. Thus ends the High Council arc of the series.

Okay so… Here’s a thing. Given the current unrest in the country/world, I’m going to say this once.

ONCE

VARAS ARE NOT HUMAN.

Do not assign human values or emotions to them. They’re a human derivative, but their genetics and society are not the same. That’s kinda the whole point of the next set of books in the series. Varas are not human and shouldn’t be expected to behave like humans, even when raised among humans.

You’ll see what I mean later.

Look. They drink antifreeze as their version of “alcohol” because it tastes good and it won’t kill them. They are NOT HUMAN.
