Deelylah says: I love the cadence and word choice. Especially how one concept flows into the next.
Deelylah says: haha. I can relate to this! Totally loving the dragon eggs--gimme more!!! The dialogue really brought it to life for me.

Deelylah says: I like the way the launching point of the scene was introduced. Lists in fiction fascinate me, and when they're well-used, like here, they're exceptionally effective.

Deelylah says: nicely done. I was initially freaking out that she was letting someone in when she didn't know who it was, but when one is home, it's safe. Right?

Deelylah says: lovely. This scene snippet is super rich because of the dialogue.
They faced each other in the hallway, each with their back against the opposing wall.
“All I need is your ‘yes’, Ashe, but not it if you aren’t completely sure,” Kami said. She inhaled slowly. Dirt. River water. Sweat. Summer heat. The tiniest hint of gunpowder. And under it all, the scent of Ashe’s arousal. Ashe had been hunting tonight.
Ashe said nothing. Kami nodded once, resigned, then pushed herself off the wall and turned to the door.
Kami’s pulse jumped. She waited.
“I’m nervous, Kami.”
“Ashe the demon hunter? Nervous?” She faced Ashe again.
“I’ve never been with -- “
“A *woman*. You think I give a rat’s ass that you’re a werewolf?”
“You just give a rat’s ass that I’m a woman. Is your attraction so hard for you to believe?”
“No! I’m just,” Ashe paused, “afraid to do it wrong.”
“Wrong?” Kami raised her eyebrows.
“Stop it. I wanted to be ready, to know what I was doing, so I did some … research.”
“No way.” Kami stifled a laugh. “Have you been watching lesbian porn?”
“Maybe. And then there were all the other things I found on the internet.” There was that uncharacteristic blush again. Utterly adorable.
In two steps, Kami closed the distance between them and pressed her hands to the wall on either side of Ashe’s shoulders. “I’m a far better teacher than the internet. All I need is your yes, Ashe.”
Ashe grabbed Kami’s belt loops and tugged her closer. “Hell, yes.”
