Ankar chuckled as he realized where the Captain came from, a world even the Kanti feared to travel. The Captain's people had no laws or written language or even settlements due to its dangerous and uncontrollable wild life and knew each other only by scent. It was one of the few worlds even the Sudain avoided.
I've got to tell you that I've had this idea for some funny animal characters of mine, and I have such a mental picture of how the Captain's people greet each other. :}
You do something I have a hard time with- follow permutations on an idea, writing each one out to see where it goes. There are similarities between Eternal and Legendary, just as there were between Wolves and Hungry. I like that you explore both ideas, until you find the one that works better for you (or find that they both work).
I drive myself crazy trying to figure out which idea is best before I write anything...which is probably why I don't write as often as others. (Just loooooots of notes) :}
@batkevin74: I dunno...I can see the temptation for a paralyzed person, but it doesn't ring true of Barbara Gordon. I'm stuck on that thought, as taking the deal is where it ended. It's not a bad cliffhanger spot, but a better one might have been some tantalizing hint at why she would take the deal- something more than "I don't believe I have a soul." <shrugs> I'd read more though.
