About the history thing

I realize I jumped in on a work-in-progress. The fact that very little makes sense right now (at chapter 6) is understandable, because there are (or had better be) several more chapters to explain things. And I think I understand all the things I'm supposed to understand at this point, like the fact that there are three very different cultures all living on floating islands - and I suspect there was, or will be, a war between the three at some point because given the tensions described there's no way they've been peaceful neighbors. Only thing is, I think MidnightEdith should be very careful about how the dragons of old are related to the modern people of these three realms; the first thing readers think of when they see "dragon" is a giant reptile (perhaps with wings or firebreath, depending on their own cultures and media), and it would be an awfully big stretch to think humans descended from them in any way (which is how I translated some of the things at the end of chapter 6). If these people were reptilian and/or the dragons had mammal qualities, that would make complete sense, but such a fact was never mentioned. Chapter 7 and beyond should clear that up somehow.

There's a tale for you

The tavern-keeper and her daughter, two so remarkably different people with no husband/father in sight. Normal life is described - and promptly flipped on its head in the most dramatic way possible. Finally, a conversation with a dragon. Not bad at all for a short story; even though my personal preference in dragons no longer runs so strongly to the sentient variety, I can appreciate when someone writes up a good chat with one.
