So on my forum, one of my fans requested that I write the scene where Xiaolang proposes to Asla. As it happens, I already had that written.
At one point, the wedding scene was MUCH larger than what you have now in the book. Part of that was because a soundingboard of mine is very much a romantic and she was having fun brainstorming with me on the scene. Once I had it all written out, though, it was just too large for a fantasy book. So Katie and I cut it down to a more reasonable length, which is what you have.
But there was one scene that I rather missed having in there, and that's what you've got here. In the middle of Garth and Chatta's wedding...*drum roll please*...this happened:( Proposal SceneCollapse )
