trying to find common ground refine by hattonslayden trying to find common ground refine by hattonslayden
by placing a temp black background i can pull out the parts that need fixing

and as for that 'thing' they have in common.  it's food.  they both love food that is sweet and or spicy. from jams to peppers, and from cakes to sauces, sweet and spicy is what they found in common and how Nell was finally able to reach Gerrard as a person to a person and not a monster.

once he could see her as a person, Gerrard found that he could see her as a woman not unlike the women he had pursued earlier in his life.  the fact that she looked different was no longer a vile thing like human society demanded he think and he could see that she is in fact quite beautiful.

i do see a bit of irony though in the use of food, at least in my experience with the portrayal of Naga

:D thanks a bunch since Naga in traditional modern day fantasy settings tend to have them as the bad guys due to them being snakes i figured it would be a good "flip on it's head" story element. by making her completely non-human so that the symbolism of 'breaking down racial barriers' is at it's absolute.

Very good sense of the intent, friendly, alien.  And an utterly bewildered human.

Awesome!^-^
I love the bit of story you put in this! It really touches home.
I laughed when I read that their common ground was food... They almost look like snake and mouse kind of deal there. He looks so uncomfortable it's hilarious! Keep up the good work!
