In Which Kala Is *Ahem* Petulant...  
Have you ever had one of those moments in your fic that you thought was brilliant, which much planned ahead, and a handful of people either misunderstand it or down-right scorn it even though they have no idea where it's headed?  

No, no, it's no one here and present, but it seems that the reveal to the Richana, subtle as it is and will be built on more heavily in the next few chapters, has made several people vocal with their displeasure. And that just hurts. I'd like to think that all of you have come far enough with us to trust us just a little. I'm going to blow a secret here and say that it's essential to the plot and everyone knows we explain our reasoning eventually, but it's already being ranted about. Have you ever know me not to have a reason for doing something? Grrrrr... Reminds me of how some people got about the Richana when it first started. And look how that's caught on....

*throws brickbats in irriation*

Why do I feel like a crabby, spoiled six-year-old who can't be understood? *sigh*

What are friends for?

Seriously, if all your peers are solidly behind you, there's no need to worry about the troll. I've often made the comment in my review replies to fellow authors that the critique means so much more coming from peers. Your fellow authors know how difficult it is to develop a plot and write action-packed, emotionally intense scenes, and recognize your excellence as precisely that. A casual reader (or in this case, troll) just doesn't get that. And your fellow authors are all delighted with your work.

'Nuff said. So don't worry, be happy.
