The Wyvern is a story which I have been working on for over a year. I did not plan for it to take this long, or for it to become this large for that matter. Looking back at the comments for Demon's Eye and Fjern's Folly there is a clear pattern to be detected here, but that just seems to be the way these things go.
Since this story is taking such a long time to complete I am now taking the advice of others and am posting it in parts. This may take a long time; before I post each part I want to go through it, read it again, rewrite sections and generally work on it until it has at least reached acceptable levels of cringeworthiness.
One consequence of me posting the story like this is that the story is not done yet. I will find comments very valuable, and it really doesn't matter if the comments are negative, because that too can be helpful. As a result, understand that what is posted here is not a final version. I may change things if I feel it will improve matters.
The first part comprises the first 60 pages of the story. It will likely be longer than the other parts because I did not want to split up the set-up that takes place in these first 60 pages.
I must give credit to several proof readers for finding glaring and subtle errors in the story. I should particularly mention Beedoo!, who has been a particularly amazing help with this. If you find any grammatical nonsense or spelling errors, this will most likely be a result of the rewrites, which she did not see. I cannot fully imagine that any existing errors slipped by her.
Lastly, I wish to apologise for being an amateur. Please keep this in mind if you find the story lacking.
