*************

Thorn Flower Prison also is known as “The First Prison of Sylvia”!

The fame of the prison has overshadowed some of the ancient noble families. In addition to relevant personnel, only a select few knew about its location.

At the moment, a giant steel carriage shook once in a while as it moved. The cage was covered with a black cloth and tied in different places with rope to prevent the wind to open it.

A total of twelve official knights from the magistrate were in charge of escorting the prisoners.

Even though they were not matched to the Knights of Light, but twelve of the knights of the magistrate were equivalent to a thousand guards army combat potential.

The carriage stopped as the black fabric covering it was lifted off. A figure sitting cross-legged was revealed.

Dudian had been hungry for seven days in the detention house of the former prison. His hair was scattered, his skin was pale. At the moment his hands and feet were bound by a sturdy metal chain, limit his action.

“Get down,” One of the knights lightly shouted.

He raised his head and looked around the carriage. His eyes flashed as he saw the structure called Thorn Flower Prison. The prison was located in the middle of a lake. At the moment, in addition to the aisle that connected the land mass to prison, all the other sides were water. A huge shadow was faintly visible as it swam in the lake.

“There is nothing to see! Come Down!” The young knight chided him.

Dudian slowly stood up and patted the dust off his body. He went off the carriage.

“Go!” The knight next to him holds down onto Dudian’s shoulder.

Dudian stared at him coldly, “I’ll go.”

The knight frowned: “Then walk briskly! ”

Dudian stepped into the human-made aisle constructed of stones. In the front, there was a huge black castle-like prison. As he walked, the metal chain bound to his ankles were dragged and made ringing sounds.

thump!

Suddenly waves poured out from the lake next to the aisle. Two meter long fish jumped out of the water while an eight-meter long crocodile-like monster crest into the sky after it. The fish was dangling from its mouth as it sinks down to the lake.

Dudian carefully looked at it slightly squinting his eye.

“Don’t look at it!” The knight next to him sneered.

Dudian quietly took back, his eyes as he continued to walk.

They reached the end of the aisle. The top part of the prison was surrounded by gardens. At the moment, many servants were cutting down the lawn and watering the garden.

“Go in, the prison is under the garden,” said one of the knights.

Along the stone trail in the garden, they went to the gate of the castle prison.

They entered a luxurious and spacious lobby. Dudian saw seven or eight jailers sitting in the lobby, eating snacks, drinking coffee, chatting and joking with each other. If they didn’t have uniforms and badges on their shoulders, Dudian would have thought that he was in a high-end restaurant in the commercial district.

People in the lobby looked at them. A few of them had charming smiles on their faces as they looked at Dudian.

“It’s my first to see such a small one. ”

“He is my dish.”

“There is a new plaything.”

“Last time, it was too weak to play as he died after several times.”

Dudian’s hearing was extraordinary so he could hear clearly all the whispering sounds of conversation happening in the lobby.

“Quickly take him down!” One of the jailer’s sitting close to the door ordered.

A knight ordered: “Come with me.” They went through a dark corridor that led them into the underground.

The basement was an interrogation room full of tools for torture. All of them were stained with blood, some of them had remained of flesh on them.

Dudian looked gloomy.

The jailer sitting at a counter next to the interrogation room saw Dudian and others coming.: “a newcomer?

The knight said to him: “This is his information. We are here to give him to you. ” Then he handed out a document to the young jailer.

Prison guard took a look at the documents: “His crime is theft?! Are you sure there is nothing wrong? A thief has been sent to us?” However, when he checked the file below, he realized the circumstances, “Oo, poor little guy.” The guard didn’t have sympathy but gloating on his face. Afterward, he put the documents on top of the counter and said to Dudian: “Little guy, take off your clothes.”

Dudian slightly frowned and didn’t comply.

“Well, well, well. Who have we got here! I haven’t eaten all day long, so let’s cut the formalities.” The guard stood up and went to the side. He brought up a big bucket of water and splashed onto Dudian’s head.

Dudian’s head was down as he slightly clenched fists.

The jailer youth caught a glimpse of Dudian’s fists and sneered: “He is angry now. Do you want to get revenge? I like ones like you. The ones who think they are tough. They seem to be very hard to break at first… Now, I will make you squat and check out your ass. Let me see if there is anything hidden inside!”

Dudian looked up at him.

“Little devil, it’s better to comply with them.” The knight from the magistrate who was standing behind Dudian seemed to know the inside information. He had a trace of regret as he looked at Dudian: “Although you are to here to reprieve for your crimes. But after you enter this place, basically there is no room for a return. It’s best not to provoke these distorted devils or else they will torture you to death. You better listen to them.”

There was a touch of a smile on jailer youth’s face who heard knight’s words.: “You are totally wrong. In this prison, we are not devils but holy angels.”

The knight’s brows wrinkled.

The jailer youth smiled: “If you ever commit a crime and get distributed to here. I promise you. I’ll love you!”

“I hope so.” The knight sneered.

The jailer recovered his eyes and looked at Dudian who was standing in front. His face sand: “Kid, are you deaf or dumb? Don’t you understand what I have told you? Why are you so stubborn?” He grabbed a steel pipe from the side and hit Dudian’s shoulder.

Bang! Dudian felt the pain and looked at the jailer youth like a ferocious beast.

puff!

One punch was enough to make the young jailer fly. Sounds of broken bones echoed out as the jailer youth’s body inverted out and hit the torture device.

“stop!”

“stop!”

The knights quickly scolded him and approached from behind to pull back Dudian.

Dudian roared and waved his hand. Dudian grabbed the knight who was about to pull him and throw him to the side. He rolled over and got up. The knight was stunned at his strength.

The other knight who was the leader shoved a kick to Dudian’s back. He was fast and had great strength. Dudian’s turned but failed to react. He was kicked and fell to the ground.

At this time, the other knights of magistrate rushed into action and pressed Dudian onto the ground.

Dudian’s eyes were red as he was tightly staring at the knights who had knocked him down. Dudian was struggling, but his arms, legs even his neck was tightly held the knights. He was almost out of breath, let alone to break free from their grasp. Although the common formal knights of the magistrate were not his opponents, at the moment, they had swarmed up. It was difficult for him to match them.

Moreover, the leader of the knights had the strength similar to an intermediate level hunter.

At this time, the jailer who was punched by Dudian stood up and came to him.

The jailer youth was sweating in pain as he looked at Dudian and growled: “Kid, I’m going to peel your skin!” He was too emotional as his chest injury was affected. The jailer spouted blood and fainted.

One of the knight’s asked their leader: “What should we do now?”

“Send him to the hospital and inform the others,” replied the leader.

About four or five guards of the prison had come down the corridor. They didn’t expect that the new little guy had so much power that so many knights would be needed to keep him in check.

“You should take him to a cell! We got to go back,” the leader of knights said to the oncoming prison guards.

They looked at each other and went around to find chains. One of them told the knights: “Help us to lock up this kid on the cross.”

The six knights who were holding Dudian down and looked at their leader.

The leader of knights frowned, but nodded.

Six knights who were locked on Dudian’s hands, feet and head moved him to the cross. Firstly, Dudian’s hands were locked to the iron cross. Secondly, they put a steel hoop around his chest. Dudian’s height was smaller than an adult’s, so his feet were locked close to the ground.

Dudian struggled, but the six knights were experienced. They had locked him from joints so he couldn’t muster up power. He helplessly looked as they locked him to the frame.

“Let’s go.” The leader knew what was going to happen until he ordered the others to leave.

The other trials which saw the prison guards take up whips were disgusted and followed their leader up the stairs. They only heard a ‘bang’ sound which echoed after the door was shut.

All five of the prison guards looked at struggling Dudian. One of them laughed.: “No need to struggle, kid.” He pulled up the whip which he was holding. There were sharp nails attached to it.

Dudian stopped struggling as he saw the parts where he was tied to cross showed no signs of loosening.
“I want to live!”

“Live!”

He continued to remind himself in his mind.

Puff! The whip in jailer’s hand moved and hit him. A sharp pain suddenly invaded all his body. It didn’t even take a moment when the whip hit Dudian second time.

“Scream, ah, ah, scream … … … …” the jailer cried in excitement as he used the whip.

Dudian lowered his head as he clenched his teeth.

The other four jailers laughed.

“I like this one. Pay attention to the points!” (TL notes: they are playing a game based on who will hit how many times)

“Get the spikes! ”

“Good.”

One of them went over a box, opened it and took out two finger long metal spikes. They were full of dust, so he just blew it off. It must not have been used for some time, so there is a lot of rust on the spikes, but the prison guard didn’t care. He picked the hammer from the desk and walked over to Dudian.

“It’s been so long that the spikes have rusted.” Another one picked up the spike, he shook his head and laughed.

“Come on, hold him!” the guard holding the hammer said.

Several others went over to hold down Dudian. The man with the hammer put up spike’s sharp edge few inches below Dudian’s shoulder. He raised the hammer and hit the end of the spike.

Puff! The sharp spike pierced into Dudian’s flesh.

What is pain?

He had experienced multiple injuries outside the giant wall. But nothing like this.

Bang!

The young man raised his hammer and once again hit the spike.

Dudian could not help but scream. He screamed in agony.

The guard began to smile as they heard Dudian’s screams. For a time only mournful screams echoed out from the torture chamber, as well as the sound of hammer hits.

Both spikes were nailed several inches below Dudian’s shoulder blade. In this severe pain, Dudian felt that he was going insane. He found that because of pain his mind couldn’t remember anything. He couldn’t focus his thoughts to remember the sadness, disappointment. Everything was gone, only pain existed.

The guards apparently weren’t going to stop there. They picked up the torture instruments and continued to inflict injuries on Dudian’s body.

A few hours later, the guard dragged the blood dripping body of Dudian through a corridor to one layer below.

It was dimly lit in here. There were yellow oil lamps on the wall. The cells covered in iron pillars and were defected from each other.

“Hey, a newcomer?”

“Poor little guy. The smell of the blood ah … …”

“So small? Gee! Look at this little tender piece of meat.”

“Hey, Sire, please send this little guy to our cell.”

Excited sounds came from both sides. Some people whistled out.

Dudian’s vaguely sensed what they were saying, but couldn’t understand anything.

A voice echoed out close to his ear: “Welcome to our little happy family.”

It was the moment voice echoed that Dudian felt he had been thrown onto a chilled ground. His cheek was attached to the floor. The smell from ground clung to his nose. It was like someone had sprinkled the floor with urine. Because of his habit of cleanliness, he instinctively wanted to raise his head, but the body was full of pain and couldn’t move.

‘Click,’ the cage’s door was locked.

The Prison guards left with a smile.

Suddenly, he felt a big hand holding onto his hair and grab him up. Dudian’s vision was blurred as he couldn’t see the details, but the general structure of a fat face. The man grinned as he said to him: “Devil! What kind of a crime have you committed to being locked up in here? Great though! Great! Ah”

Dudian gasped: “Let me down.”

“What do you say? I can’t hear ya.” The obese man deliberately leaned his ear towards Dudian’s mouth.

Dudian gasped, but didn’t say anything.

The fatty puts Dudian next to a mat. Then he stood up and untied his pants in front of Dudian.

Dudian reluctantly opened his eyes and saw the lower body of the fatty. He understood what the fatty wanted to do. His brain awakened, but his body was painful. He wanted to react, but especially because of the spikes he couldn’t move his arms.

Fatty saw that Dudian had opened his eyes and said: “It’s your turn so enjoy it.”

Dudian stared at him: “I guarantee that you will lose it if you dare to put this thing in my mouth.”

Fatty’s face was cold: “I will instantly smash your head if you dare to bite.”

Dudian stared back at him, “Believe me when I am in pain the first reaction is to clench my teeth!

      1. it has nothing to do with him being dark king its how bad the writing has become it was really well written before and now its just embarrassing to read

          1. the horrible and cringe worthy romance ark that turns into a i’m getting almost killed then thrown into prison arc is why its turning into shit

            1. Well to each his own. I’m finally starting to enjoy this novel. I wonder how changed our MC will be when he gets out…

    1. What part of the word “Dark king” you don’t understand. This 2 chapters are obviously turning point for the real story… do you perhaps expect an Dark Fantasy on the Level of arifureta when you start this novel…

    2. Just to add to something. the plot was GREAT amazing when he was trying to become a judge or something with real power but this romance that turned into him being imprisoned and her believing everyone else when she KNOWS he went on a mission outside to win her father over… she pretty much sent him off to the mission yet she suddenly no no your a thief admit it. just cringe worthy writing its so horrible

      1. While I agree that Jenny not trusting Dudian is shitty writing, I don’t agree that this chapters is shitty. In fact, the novel title now matches his current predicament.

        Maybe you’re just used to positive story lines. Now that the “inciting event” triggered, you also got triggered lol.

    3. Also to the translator your a really good translator thank you for doing it i have no qualms with how you wrote and keep up the amazing job.

    4. People now days think things that are real, are cringy and embarrassing. Music is a very good example of this. If its music that discusses real problems people will find it uncomfortable and will stray from listening to it saying its cringy or bad. Although this isn’t any real problem nowadays shit like this happend alot in the medieval era which is pretty much this era for them.

  1. First introduce the useless Jenny character, get forced to sit out 10 boring romantic chapters with no character development to justify setting him back on his journey and adding useless rape and torture elements in the story. He could have easily kidnapped Jenny in the prison and made his escape. I’m also dropping this. Incredibly disappointed, really thought highly of this novel.

    1. What makes you think he could’ve easily kidnapped her? Plus he was still expecting a fair trial. He was also hoping for her to see his side but she couldn’t. Although I do agree on the 10 boring romantic chapters. That was a bother.

      1. Hes a FREAKEN HUNTER who is as powerful as a veteran hunter yet he let weak humans kidnap him put him in jail instead of going to any of the leader groups saying hey i’m a god now how can these insects trouble me when i can do so much to help you, this is why i say its bad writing. He just got done saying how powerful he is yet instead of showing any power at all to the leaders who know how valuable he is he lets them take him to prison to get raped and tortured i’m sorry but this does not go with how the story was leading. he was becoming dark king since he said he wanted to become the real power of the world but this throwback shows he can’t be an open power how is he gonna do anything from inside jail if he breaks out hes still a known criminal and his body features are not something easily hidden

        1. In case you haven’t read, he didn’t get to eat for 7 days! It’s already a miracle when he was able to throw that punch.

    2. derp derp derp, there was a group of knights surrounding him, with the captain being his same level. He could not escape even if he wanted to. Even if he has plot armor, its pretty thin, which makes this good. If you want a shitty story with no depth go read some weeaboo fanfic.

    3. Btw some of you are forgetting something, this is no damn medieval era. And come on man you just ruined the whole story.. I know that the title is dark and all but really? It seems so forced started from the first love or when he want to study laws even though he’s a fucking hunter. I quit. You guys can enjoy the new theme and gayness.

    1. actually , all this arc is prety good for character development. like the tittle i think he supposedly to be cruel isn’t , he is young . and the era he reside in is about the same like bronze age. witch , crusade and all that .

      the people in that age is majority is moronic people with basic knowledge about life . dont hope too much like our age. an technology which information can be shared world wide

  2. thanks for the chapter. keep on translating. Don’t worry about them haters who claim they’re dropping. they’re what we call tsunderes…they’ll be back

  3. MadSnail, can you tell us when the Prison Arc will end, or you believe it will end. Many people are quite touchy about this sort of things.

    Personally, I simply hate the overdone cliche that authors believe an imprisonment, or near imprisonment, arc will have great character development.

    So unless it’s important to the story, I usually feel hesitant to read over this kind of stuff.

    Thanks for the chapter.

  4. I’m impressed. Chinese’s always write their novels like if they were tough people who are able to write about blood and sex but at the end, they never cross certain boundaries that makes them so childish inside. It’s a first time I read such a mature chinese novel who is able to talk about real sides off society (“real” injustice, feeling of abandonnement, trahison, real questions on justice, rape, human violence, hidden reality).
    But I think these obstacles will be the real trigger of his maturity and what will push him towards his futur identity as the Dark King.

  5. Naa he’s just 13 years old man there just some things in this world that you need time to lean. Plus he went through too much too fast that the little childish love had him forgetting where he come from. He need this to get that never ending drive to slay demons and gods.

  6. He should have seen what was going on before he even went out on the fake mission. Then he let himself be captured knowing a rich noble wanted him dead. He already knew the government was corrupt, but thought they would let him out? The Mc has turned in to a dumbass, im dropping it as well.

    1. Bro, he didnt let the rich people captured, he didnt has choice to.
      1st he cant stay a long time outside the wall
      2nd he cant escape from the Light of Knight inside the wall, if he doesnt has a team or some secret maps. it is not like every novel is about the MC being the best and can kill any enemy easily, that is a bored novel.

  7. If the MC is loosing his ‘wrong side’ virginity im dropping this, if he doesn’t then im really loving this twist, pain always makes main characters heartless and cunning and strive for revenge in everyway possible.

    I think the next chapter is gonna decide how much people will drop this:)

  8. I dont know but for me its starting to get good. This arc is going to be important for Dudian, i’m sorry but minus the rape(dont think it really wil happen) Dudian needs this because hes still young and naive and in this world you can’t make too many mistakes its better to learn now than later.

  9. Don’t forget you guys, Torture is what made Kaneki a great character after being a little faggot.

    So minus the rape, this Arc is gonna make the story a whole lot more interesting

  10. Meh, my problem is that sometimes he’s a genius sometimes an idiot.
    He could have escaped when Jenny visited him, but noooo… he waits until he’s in a high security prison and surrounded. And weakened.

    Thanks for the chapters anyway.

  11. It’s finally starting to get on the track I expected. I can chock his idiocy up to young love, and him not taking Jenny hostage up to heartbreak. So I’m liking this turn.

    For those claiming to be dropping, you should have seen it coming by now. It is also an EXTREMELY refreshing change of pace compared to those LNs that have the girl believing every single thing the MC does.

    Sincerely, thank you for translating and doing so, so fast. Keep going!!

  12. Another weird plot after use forcing a plot to meet jenny this plot i already guess it. This author really in needs an attentions because if ya wrote sumthin and get nothin, then yer a nothin. He should patiently build up the story not twisted and break it he’s second rate build up story. Idiot Authot hope you burn in hell.

    1. Forced plot? well im sure every plot of any novel is a forced plot lol! look at Legend of the condor heroes(famous novel in China,Hong kong and maybe in Taiwan) Hong Qigong when meet Huang Rong and Guo Jing first time by luck when they are cooking and he teach Guo Jing a superior martial art.

  13. Also, for those saying, “As a genius, he should have seen this coming.” or similar statements, know that intellect and naivety are not directly related.

    A genius can be naive and an idiot can be worldly.

  14. very happy with the current story. the story so far was very diversified. and now we finally go to the ‘dark’ part. i hope it will still be as diversified in the future though.

  15. I dont really understand people who said -author bild such a story then change everything its shit bla bla bla.l think it was only long prologe because story will have 1000+chapters and at the start there were tags horror drama and betrayal.what do you want with such tags story how MC hunts monsters and lives good life with Jenny???HAHAHA NO

  16. I’m sorry to say but you aren’t quite patreon material yet. your speed is excellent, but you do it at the cost of quality. get an editor to go over past and current chapters to make them 99% readable, then i might become a patreon. i do thank you for the chapters you do release.

  17. I’m surprised, it actually gets more interesting this way. I honestly don’t understand why people are coming up with this “I’m dropping this” bullshit like what did you expect?
    should’ve guessed something from the name “The Dark King” with Genres “Drama, Romance and Mature” and the tag “Betrayal” lol. thanks for all the chapters! greatly enjoyed this twist really drags you into the story.

  18. Now that’s really interesting. I did know that he will get pretty fucked when he started the relationship with Jenny. I really hope he will become bloodthirsty. I really love anti-heroes and evil.

    Let the darkness swallow the light. <3

  19. Stupid!! People can’t you see dudian still believed in an era were the law still dominate. Even though he trained many years as a scavenger there is no way for him to know how the society works inside the wall.

    1. If he doesn’t take revenge on the melon corporation and the noble family ill be truly disappointed if its because of Jenny

  20. You guys should remember that Dudian have family, if he runs away the City can just execute his family and that’s not what we would want to happen, right ?

  21. Hmm wonder how Jenny would react seeing the ‘fair’ justice system. At least he’s gonna have some dope scars now? Anyways what the hell did he expect from a brainwashed system, a place run on power, and he actually thought that if a strong family wanted him gone, somehow the system would protect him? Heheh
    Now now the dark king shall rise.

  22. Now he just needs to somehow lose his adoptive parents and we can finally get past all this exposition. Get on with some crazy experiments with his Igor lab assistants.

  23. @Wolfie I dont understand any of your arguments and shit. Dudian cant resist because of he does that he will be hunted down by the govt as an escaped criminal. How is that bad writing? Actually what you are saying is the bad writing part it makes no sense why will Melon corp or any corp take a normal person’s side over the richest man in the wall? He’s only 13 yrs old nobody thinks he’s great in fact the hunter assigned to him almost killedhim singlehandedly what “I’m a god” bs are you spouting? Even Jenny not believing him seems rational since Deacons sentenced him and another family conspired against him.

    The only thing I dont like is the rape part in prison. Yes this really happens but I dont like reading about it LOL. Hopefully he escapes or does something before it happens.

  24. I suppose this is the point where the boy becomes a man, along with the loosening of his ass.
    Here’s the lesson for the mc, the world is unfair and it will rape you in the ass.
    Now rub some spit and dirt and toughen up.

  25. Thanks for the chapter.
    These people are gonna get it later and when they do they will regret for touching him. Also I wonder if other hunters know that a fellow hunter has been framed. I wonder will Glenn enter the fray coz she knows dudian won’t steal. Or will there be attacks by alchemist organization coz they’d want an hunter in their organization

  26. O.O

    I suppose I should of expected such twists… but kinda thought he would run an underground alchemist society as a guard and slowly covert people to the dark side… but I suppose this makes since to be dark king you have to experience the darkness of humanity.

    Jenny was an interesting character with dudian, as they had what would say was american dream of sorts. Together they hoped to take care of the darkness, but at last they got swallowed into it. Admittedly, the author slacks a bit on jenny farewell, but I can seem they meeting again under darker circumstances. The question now is how will they grow from there childhood Nativity.

    Does Jenny grow up to realize and try to repent for her mistakes or does she get carried by society’s teaching. At last, I wouldn’t be trusting love in series, for it surely doesn’t give us what we expected.

  27. Well the plot line is starting to get weak…
    Ok the girl which is going to be a judge is stupid.
    He didnt even tried to escape before going to prison omg.

  28. Forced plot is a very skewed word that readers ignorant of writing add in.
    A Forced plot is a ploy that diverts from the main story-line, un-foreshadowed, and forced upon the current Arc to change the pace.

    If you all didn’t notice, this Arc ( the forced imprisonment Arc) was foreshadowed long ago when Dudian first entered the Melon consortium.

    Dudian, at the Melon Consortium ball, met the face of Aristocracy for the second time. (The first being with the young miss from that one family who was pompous)

    The period of this story, with the belief system of the characters, is also Archaic. Filial Piety is a strong belief in most archaic and most Asian cultures.

    So, the girl whom Dudian first met long before he became a hunter, long before he acquired his magic marks, long before he first exited the walls, is naive and sheltered.

    Jenny, the girl whom Dudian loved, was an Aristocrat. For an Aristocrat, it’s more easy to see a poor person lusting for money and status than it is for a poor person to want to see beyond that.

    Jenny, the girl whom Dudian was interested in, also stated her answer for the Magistrates test was that everyone should be entitled to a “fair trial” in which they are JUDGED.

    At the point which Jenny converses with Dudian, he has been sentenced by “irrefutable evidence” from the highest authority that JUDGES.

    Therefore, from the interest of said characters, Jenny would be inclined to believe Dudian is a thief. She would’ve been accepting of Dudians “commoner interests” if he had have “admitted his apparent wrongs”.

    These things I’ve stated are Factual. They have been foreshadowed. They have been distinctly written.

    The reason it’s hard to accept these things is because they are raw. Emotionally, we are at a vantage point away from the conflict. IF you can not emphasize with a character in a story, the way that character’s personality has been set, the way that character responds to stimuli based off of their interests, then you have no right to discern the credibility of the story as Factual.

    In short, you are saying, “My opinion is that the Main Character as a Savant-Child genius should be able to compute the most desirable outcome against all odds. Even if that means for-going his personality.”

    Which I might add, the Author even directly stated Dudians’ “exhaustion” towards travelling beyond the wall. He felt secure with his Original goal being accessible with a woman he’d loved and would’ve liked to have settled down with her. That’s reasonable.

    As again, Dudian, a modern child, was beginning to accept the practices of the people of THIS time. The time he currently in states that if he’s capable, he should start a family. IF you don’t remember, Dudians’ adopted parents stated 13 is the legal age of marriage. That most people in Aristocracy are engaged before 13.

    So, to the complainers, your comments are moot. You do nothing to better the story by badmouthing the literary prowess of someone who takes more time than you to even develop a thought. You actually regress your intelligence by doing so. Please learn to critique with etiquette next time.

    Sincerely,

    AKindBoy
