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*

I was going to comment with something similar to this!

If you have this many people interested in, and enjoying your story, then you can pretty sure your writing would be enjoyed in the wider world. It's a matter of taste, no matter how you look at it. The NY Times bestseller at this moment (I don't know who it is) has a lot of fans AND detractors. Not everyone likes the same kinds of writing or stories.

So does that mean all of his/her critics render the book to be crap? I think all of his/her fans would completely disagree.

*more hugs*
