"And you know if we both have to spend our time with dragons, at least yours is a cute one." "The Thing In the Walls Wants Your Small Change" by Virginia M. Mohlere (published 2018) is a short fantasy story about recovery from abuse, a tiny cute dragon, and how we protect each other. On a similar theme: "Four Things that Weren't Adequately Covered in Mulan's R.A. Training" by NaomiK, a short fan fiction piece published in 2013. "Mulan is a Resident Assistant on a dormitory floor at a college. Gosh, some of the students on her floor come from really screwed-up families."

Can a kritzer tag be added? Because Naomi Kritzer is the author of the Mulan story. (Also, both stories are terrific, and thank you for posting them, brainwane.)

That was really good. I've been thinking of trying a Princess fanfic of my own, but this one was a delight.

I was way too far into this before I realized what it was, and had to start over when I got the joke.

(it's delightful, by the way)

Virginia Mohlere is so great! I spent a blissful four days reading an amazing fanfic by her thanks to an askme thread last week.
