I decided to read all of COI today, including rummaging through your LJ and I like it a lot. While it was disconcerting to realize that you must have started writing it back when I was 10 years old, the amount of detail and thought you've put into this universe is appreciatively incredible. Not only that, but your grasp of characterization and personality and handling of all the scars and trauma and fuckedupdedness of all the characters is...gosh, I wish I could even dream of matching that level of writing and world-building, maybe someday in the distant future.

However, there is one tiny grammatical/vocabulary thing that's been constantly bothering me, probably because I read everything in one big chunk - it's the difference between "discrete" and "discreet." Discreet is describing something low-profile and unnoticeable, discrete is describing particles or segments that are completely separated from each other.

Thanks for your interest in COI (and your patience)! I'm glad you've been enjoying the stories so much. Poor Cloud, I do so enjoy torturing him. ::evil grin::

Yeah, others have mentioned the same thing to me. I know that there's a difference, but my fingers keep mixing the two, and it isn't the sort of mistake that spell-checking catches. ::sigh::
