Recced because: I wasn't familiar with the fairy tale Daystar Searcher used to frame this story, but it didn't matter. In fairy tales, sometimes a human has to look past outward appearances to find true love, and so it is here – although unlike the original fairy tale, the dragon stays a dragon, and the human falls in love with her anyway. The language here is just beautiful: romantic, dreamy, and very true to the magical spirit of fairy tales themselves.
