For the entirety of her life, Iris Gwenneth has known the words 'loss' and 'exclusion' all to well. With a dead mother and a broken engagement... Iris's father is the only one she has left. 
  
  However, when their country is attacked by fearful adversaries and one man from every family is forced to join the army, Iris learns that she may just lose him as well. That is, unless someone takes her father's place...
  
  In a tale of adventure, friendship, and sacrifice, Iris will discover what it means to be courageous --to find the strength to do what is right, even if it means breaking the laws of her country. She will also find that loving someone can mean giving up everything for them --even giving up life itself. 

In this new coming of age, Iris will learn that if one masquerades as a soldier for too long... 
  
  They might just become one.

(Now undergoing MASSIVE edit!)

Me: *reads latest Guardian chapter*
                              Me: *gets Fearless nostalgia*
                              Me: dammit, time to reread instead of doing homework

Cool story bro. Love the drawing. Couldn't have done it better myself.
MULAN. THE LITTLE GIRL'S DOLL.
                              I don't know, somehow the imagery draws parallels. 
                              Loving the writing so far, can't wait for when the final edits are done.

That kinda reminds me of Eragon when he and Brom found the village that had been slaughtered by Urgals
                              There was also a huge pile of bodies, except that one had a baby speared through at the top (it was really messed up and I felt nauseous reading it)
