    The writing quality isn't bad, but some words aren't used within their usual English usages, although their definitions aren't wrong for the meaning. The story starts out grim, and though it moves along well, I think the main character might have lived more happily if she'd run away in the first chapter. I hope she makes it to a happy ending. Easy to follow, heart wrenching, glimpses of riches beyond our grasp, glimpses of corruption most of us don't have to rub up against. Good luck to all, characters and readers.

    Unfortunately there’s not. The flag is basically just an undismissable marker, and a sign that there’s no penalty for attacking

    Fortunately or unfortunately, I wrote these chapters too close to brain surgery and didn’t write down my thoughts at the time, so my own reconstruction of the why is a bit muddled. But good call, kind of wish I’d used it , lol.

    Brendan shrugged, and then led his brother away from the cargo dock at a brisk pace. The problem with secure communications was that when they were hacked it was very difficult for the user to tell, and Eks Corp hadn't had any secure channels interrupted for a few generations. From what he could see on the station surveillance, he was guessing that the security team members were quite likely innocent or oblivious, rather than actively ignoring the communications of Eks Corp's princes.

    I’m not familiar with that story, but since I’m echoing old stories here, similarity with others is unavoidable.

    She'd never had any combat training outside of the simple physical exercises that her mother had taught to both her and her father. She'd always thought that those were more like a dance than anything, even though she knew that they were from some kind of traditional martial art in her mother's home system. But her mind recognized the movements that her instincts were using to strike the Eks Corp Security officers.

    The author has improved over time! I found the first few chapters confusing and jumbled feeling, mostly due to the way they were written. It was not exactly wrong, but pretty clear that it wasn't by a native English speaker back then. The adjectives used, and order of sentences, were just... odd. Very descriptive, but weird. The latest chapters flow much more easily, despite the characters angst and plotting. I'm not sure it's any less tangled, but it's no longer tangled up in technicalities! You've grown a lot! I hope you'll keep writing.[img=recommend]

    Thank you. I really want to reach the end of the story before I die if things go badly though, so it might feel a little rushed, but I'll keep following my outline.

    Technically, I think the story is five star so far, given that usually my difficulty with time skips has nothing to do with their execution. The beginning chapter confused me a lot, but has also been irrelevant to the -five years ago- tale, so far. I presume that it is unfortunately where life is heading for the characters. My main complaints are mostly related to conflicts with my own definitions of concepts. Innocence never hides anything, because it doesn't know it should. That doesn't mean the naive girl trying to hide things is guilty of anything, but to me she has suffered far too much and been confined too much to be innocent. The 'main' character is a bully, and thinks that's okay as long as the person being picked on is expecting it? Umm... either I misunderstood, or I really hope he learns better along the way. He thinks about a lot of things, but he's very self centered in his thoughts so far. The compliments: Things are written pretty clearly, no confusion over the meanings of phrases or holes in the sentances, even when there are holes in the information the story provides. It's written well. I haven't once noticed a misspelling or structural problem to distract me from the story. And if those are there, then the flow of the story is pulling it along quite well. Luck in the rest of the tale, may comfortable days and peaceful hearts be obtained.

    Umm, mostly (I think) because the only one who actually kind of understands what a Dragon really is, is Rafaela, and only from her inherited dream memories? And she hasn't really shared all of that with everyone else, only half beleives it still. And Brendan saw the dragons but he didn't quite get that they were real? Anyway, if I'm writing it right, it should be lining up like that. Everybody else still kinda just sees big buff human.

    I'm surviving along, apparently with my second round of Covid I'm going to be a long-hauler patient. The cough and ear aches won't end. But I wasn't as seriously ill for as long as I was the first time, so there's that. I have begun trying to catch up on everything, but haven't yet completed a new chapter. I'll post as soon as I have one, and try to get started again with one a week until I've caught up and rebuilt some backlog. Thank you so much for the words of encouragement.

    So.. my family is Covid positive, and I've caught it. I don't know how long it will be until I post again, but I'll resume when my health improves. If I get anything written in the meantime, I'll post it, but wasn't entirely happy with the last chapter I only finished the night before posting.

    And poof go the last coins won in the competition when I started this story. I spent most of them on better stories and things, but when the notification popped up and said the last of them would expect tomorrow, I gave them to my own story. LoL

    Oooh... yeah, not really! A side comment from Adrian's perspective about her becoming the Jade Corp heir, since her father became its head and tore it apart to leave only a tiny core of the old corporation.
