What I've read is pretty good so far but my only nitpick is that she does have actual swords to fight with, she only uses knives/daggers with her ult, it's really odd imaging her using knives for normal fights lol


I do see what you're saying. The reason I ended up going with the wording that I did is because I watched her fight in the game and decided how I wanted to describe her style. The twin blades she uses are longer than what is usually considered a dagger or knife, but still, a bit shorter than what is usually considered a sword. To be honest, at first I struggled with what to call them. In a previous draft I did refer to them as swords, but when I re-read it, I ended up changing that because, to me, it sounded wrong. One reason is I don't consider her a 'swordsman' in the way that, say, Fiora, Yi, or even Tryndamere are. I watched her fight style, abilities and basic attacks, and she seemed to handle them more like knives to me. The word 'sword' conjured movements and a style that didn't seem to fit with her. I don't always specify the size of a blade that she's using at a given moment, but I usually do refer to the bigger ones as 'blades,' which is length nonspecific, or 'knives,' which they do resemble, and I typically reserve 'daggers' for the smaller ones. (Also, in her description of Death Lotus, it does use the word 'daggers' when describing the ability, and that certainly fits in visually with her Q and W abilities. It also makes a lot more sense - she doesn't start throwing around big swords suddenly. Granted, it's been awhile since I've had to read the ability descriptions and she's had some changes, so don't kill me if this is now outdated, ha. I would look up the current descriptions, but I'm on my phone.)
This explanation might not be completely satisfying, but I wanted to address it, as it's something I myself thought a lot about, and try to explain my thought process. Ultimately, I went with the wording that I did because it seemed, to me, the most fitting for her character and fight style.
Thanks for the comments!

Fair enough! I'll just imagine it from what I see the ingame version do XD

Although for her W skill, having all four of her swords spin around her does make more sense to me :x

It took me a long time to find a proper way to express my reaction to the last chapter. Here it is. http://www.reactiongifs.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/feelings.gif

I would say I'm sorry, but that would be a lie.

I've been reading since I found this amazing story on fanfiction.net, and have been contributing art to go along with it since chapter 5. I agree, the suspense is a killer, but it's always worth the wait.
