The Bride of the Water God focuses on more style than substance and the protagonist isn't very life-like. Focuses on too much conflict and political like struggles which I love, but they make it very redundant and repetitive.

The idea of a person being offered to a God isn't very original, but could have read more

Children: YAY! The end!

No children, it's only the beginning

*Creepy horror movie sound effects*

The story was supposed to be a happy-ending-ed oneshot, that would have read more
