A Black Feather - Discussion

Link to Story

Discuss 'A Black Feather' in this thread. What do you say to plot? Was it fitting? Surprising? Unexspectedly awesome?
As well, I would like to hear your oppinion about the protagonist's character progression throughout the story.
And lastly, I of course want to know what you think about the ending, reintroducing a well-known face... sorta...

Haha, no, not recently, though I have been in Colonia Agrippina a few times. Our Latin teacher loved to make 'excursions' to the Roman sights/ruins and overall bars in Köln.
Is the name Loreley (or Lorelei, as it's usually spelled) related to the Rhein? I'm aware it's not a new name, though I can't tell where it originates from.

Yes it belongs to the Rhein. Back in my days we had to learn some poems at school for no reason, the Lorelei was one of these, and as of everytime we had to do such stuff, I just didnt even try to memorize these useless things no matter in which grade that resulted (I just remember the title and that rhein stuff due to the teacher always talking about it for that one week, and due to the fact that it just got mentioned here, semi-aidetic Memory ftw). :D
I don't say, your "insert whatever here" is bad, I'm only showing possibilities for making it better.

GregTech Website

Patreon really helps me out, so if you consider funding the development of GT, so I might be able to do it full time, why not?

GregTech 6, the Main Thread, Bug Reports go here too.

I'm also reachable on #gt-dev on irc.esper.net, if you don't want to make a Forum account to contact me, for example. ;)
(I'm there almost every day, but only when I'm at my own computer, and yes you can drop bugs there too)

Spoiler alert- don't open this unless you've read the book.

The whole demoness being Cyra was quite obvious, I guessed it at the first point where she's written about. Especially after reading TDC and The Warden.

I suppose so. I intended to make it obvious to those who knew TDC beforehand. I even considered not writing that last page all-together (or at the very least not calling names).
Actually, till the very end, I wasn't sure how I wanted to end the story. Options were the current ending, an alliance between those two and the third one would have been Loreley's defeat. But the current ending fits the global plot much better. Though it's a pity to lose such an amusing and unpredictable character as her... At least for the timeline after the story, as I've mentioned there are a couple of storys that play chronologically before, but have yet to be written.

Btw, I'm surprised you drew a connection to the story 'The Warden'.
