Oh, SSCWTSIVGABH. Part of being human is being bad at it.

You just don’t have enough experience to know that yet, that’s all.

That is *very* profound, actually. Yes, yes, that's so.

And she'll need more chapters, maybe more than the book, to fully learn it, as will my protagonist. But yes. It's true, for shapeshifters and for the rest of us.

Actually, I meant this: SSCWTSIVGABH. Translation, pretty please?

Oh! Just "Shapeshifting Secondary Character Who Thinks She Isn’t Very Good At Being Human." :-)

Ah. Thank you!

This is the most intriguing thing I have read in a LONG time! Want want want!

I'm thinking I need to follow this shiny new thematic thread and see where it leads.
