Hey, everyone... I don't know if I'll stick around, we'll see... but I'm here from another Warren, so to speak... So yeah... Nice to see and meet you all! Maybe one day you can visit!

Unusual intro, but welcome all the same. :) Perhaps we'll convince you to hang around here instead.

Welcome, Indi-Rah. I hope you'll have enough of fun time here to stay with us. :)

You come from another warren? Could you tell what warren that is?

Well, I mean to say another site, one that I made, but no one's joined and I don't wanna advertise xD But I've made a good deal of fan warrens, too... None got off the ground, of course. I do hope to stay, too, but we'll see. I have a bad habit with things like this Dx

There's not too many warrens on the net that get much active users so I think getting it off the ground is difficult, I've only seen about 10 users here that are active.

WSD for some reason doesn't keep a very active following.

Is has been. This is the only one I've found that's been touched since 2010.

It is sad, yes, probably just because it is old, it is far better than most books I've read today and it is very different, I guess the problem is that it just is not talked about or mentioned anymore today, I will make sure I will keep a book or two of that in my ownership throughout my life, I wanna make sure people I know can read and enjoy it for what it is, a good book.

Exactly. It beats out modern crap by a mile. It's quite a shame, because no one talks about it anymore - they'd rather talk about paranormal romance or some other hraka. Really, now, most of the stuff we see today isn't nearly as good... I've read WsD four times simply because I have nothing better to read. I'd be reading it a fifth time if I could find my copy...

Hey Inle-Rah! Like you I am also belonging to another warren of my own, that's not quite hosted on the internet. That means it isn't on the search engines because I'm not that brilliant. Here is a great warren. However long you stay, have fun!

Yeah WSD is probably the best book I have read, it just is so well written and keeps smart, it doesn't barrel off into 10-50 pages of romance like almost every single damn book or movie seems to these days.

Yeah! In fact, part of the appeal to me is how... alien it feels. It doesn't focus on romance at all. Rather, it views mating as something used for survival. And I liked that about it!

Hello Indi-Rah! I agree that WSD is soooooooo much better than fiction stories of humans falling in love with vampires and all that stuff (I wonder who thought of all that junk?????) Strange that the forum isn't more active because WSD is AWESOME!
I was unable to get on any of the forums I belonged to for the longest time because of my school but now, hopefully I will raise that 10 active forum users to 11. ;)
