{{Wattpad Featured Story}}
When Riposte Clasicant, a legendary elven swordsman in a human metropolis, finds himself dueling to defend his actions toward a woman he doesn't love, he is tempted to throw the fight--until he finds out his opponent, her fiancé, is a bigger monster than he is.
            
            In Silver Blades novellas, we follow the adventures of Rip Clasicant, who has neglected both duty and honor in recent decades. His life of debauchery often rubs society the wrong way, and just as often it pushes back. Only his superior skill with a blade has kept him alive thus far. Pertuli, his sarcastic but well-meaning sidekick, has his doubts about how much longer his friend's fortune will last.

              Note: Part 2 contains a single string of bad language. If you are easily offended, please scan past that one line and continue. No more, I promise.

I really am enjoying your writing style so far! One thing I noticed: in these two sentences, "pretended" and the first "a" in parentheses are capitalized and I think, grammatically, it would be more correct if these two instances were not capitalized. Just a thought!

Not sure the --- works here. I think just "You know(, i)f we hired" or even a ... instead might read better for a brief pause (not a whole separate line).
Love your writing style! I'm a huge fan of this genre and the extensive vocabulary you utilize.

Can you maybe read the first chapter of my book? And maybe suggest it to others if you like it?
I really like this character so far - I particularly like his clever wit!
