Being small has its perks.

Smolder is not a changeling. But sometimes she feels like one.

Being a dragon can be downright exhausting.

I feel like there should be a chapter two. Because I don’t really get what’s going on here. Smolder isn’t a changeling, but wishes she was a changeling, so...that she could become a dragon, which is what she is? Or she wants to be a different dragon? She wishes that she could hoard something else?

Like, I’m getting that there’s at least some body dysmorphia happening here, but I don’t quite understand what it is exactly.

Also Ocellus’ absence is notable...

Full disclosure, I have a part 2 written, but it never sat right with me. If there's enough interest I could probably revisit and bust it out.

There needs to be more. You left this on a horrible cliffhanger, so please resolve it.

Look at what she says to Spike specifically: "Make sure it's something you want."

Smolder hoards words: "Information" is used, but she hoards words. The problem is that she doesn't want words. She wants poems. Her brother's poems, specifically (there's probably more to unpack there, too). But she doesn't have a hoard of her brother's poems; she has a hoard of words. She has a bunch of garbage that she doesn't want, but she's stuck with it. She wants to be a curator of her brother's poetry, but all she's ever going to be is a garbage collector, adding more garbage words to her hoard because she messed up and now she can't take it back.

I think we've all been there, wanting to transform from what we are into what we wish we were.

I'd definitely be in favor of a continuation. I liked this story, but it did seem a little pity-party-esque.

Oh.

Oooohhhhhhhh...

That makes sense. Thanks for the help!

And how's Part 2 of Gallus coming along? :rainbowwild:

I'm not an intellectual by any stretch, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night!

...Touché, my friend. Touché.

In all seriousness, if it's not out by Friday, I will be massively disappointed in myself. (All that's left is this one stretch of about one thousand words that I keep throwing away and rewriting. I think I'm on the right track now, but it's been a massive pain.)

Neat! Stuff to look forward to.

A motivational push, eh? You're on!

Following this one!
Wonder what will happen next.

I’m confused, but interested!
