Hey! It looks like you're new here. You might want to check out the introduction.
I'm a fan of donkeys and mules. Bias as hell here. I voted this my fav story because it present the information in the story at a good pace that kept me hooked. The sort of twist at the end is clever and it makes the world building here is good enough. Also felt something for the characters and it was another reason why I picked this as the best. Excellent job on the whole thing.
