I vote for Deangle

To elaborate on my vote, id have to agree with Chase on both points; that Cerit had control of the battle entirely, and pushed the little elf all over the place. I also agree however that MSS is an amazing writer, and once again with Chase when he states that spine in the little elf would be great, however it may be developed.

An epic battle~!

This was a completely epic fight, and when its between two friends its hard to choose. However, Cerit clearily had control of that fight, as he pushed and prodded the frail elf all the way around the burning village. Add to the fact that he is awesome with his twisted, insane view of the world, i think my vote would have to go to deangle.

+1 to deangle

I would appreciate some criticism. I plan on going over this a few times to try and find things that I want to improve on, and some help would be awesome. Especially if I agree but wouldn't have noticed without someone pointing it out.

Thanks for being patient Deangle.

You are a great writer mss, and you fill your posts with interesting details, but i don't think your aggressive enough to win battles easily. perhaps you need to work on putting some spine into that elf of yours.

+1 to Deangle

MSS, unless you wanted it to seem that way, my impression was that your character was WAY too gullible and moldable, easily persuaded and the like. If thats what you wanted to portray, congrats, thats how it came through. Anyway, I handed this to Deangle for his fighting and close quarters writing. Congrats.

+1 MSS
I personally very much enjoyed her posts and style of writing, and while it was an excellent battle, and they were both very good I felt that she was that little bit better.

Yes Sawsaw, that was intentional. She isn't one who likes to put herself in real danger (that will likely change as she grows) and I wanted her to try to passive her way out of the combat (although it wasn't a goal of mine, that would be rather silly) until she realized that it wasn't going to work. She entered the village only wanting to deal with the fire, and fighting was pretty counter productive to that goal.

Spine will develop. In her life, she hasn't ever seen real combat besides this and her training battle. Her long elf life has been one of safety, and I don't really think a balls-to-the-walls attitude would make much sense for her. Especially as she still has a long lifetime ahead of her, she naturally should value it a bit more than the average bear.

And this, my friends, is why drow are superior to high elves, and why the highelves get slaughtered in the night as they caper and dance in a circle oblivious to the world around them. Stress-filled world of always-watching-your-back-lest-you-find-a-knife-in-it for the win.

But for real. Your girl needs to grow a spine, and quickly, if she's going to survive. Hopefully Cerit taught her a thing or two about being aggressive.

Good show, boys.
