Welcome to the Cat-Dragon Athenaeum!
Where the Cat-Dragon themselves conduct their casual and serious read for reads.
When you fill out the form, let me know which story of mine you will be reading. You will have the choice between two stories of mine, both ongoing novellas. I will not start reading until you have completed your part, but don’t start until I accept! I am expecting more than just one-word or emoji comments, though.
So, here are my (few) rules:
- Follow Wacky Writers’ Code of Conduct when conducting any conversation on this thread.
- I reserve the right to refuse a form. While I am always willing to read anything, I will refuse a form for a few things: the form was filled out incorrectly/left out information, or the submitted story contains information or subject matter that I don’t personally feel comfortable with reading. Password: I summon the almighty Cat-Dragon!
- Make sure to fill the form out completely! And please do not start reading until I have accepted your form. This stops you from doing any extra work, in the case that I might not accept your form.
- Submitted stories are available to be read on Wattpad. Should we go into a more serious read for read, I do not mind evolving the read for read into a beta-reader situation - in that case, I would be completely okay with going over chapters on Google Docs.
- Be sure to complete the payment! After two weeks, if I message you and get no response I will have to remove you from the Accepted list, or in the case that you halfway completed your payment, I will complete up to what you completed for me.
- Please be patient! I have a lot going on in my life, but I will get to your story as soon as possible.
Gunmetal Wings (Science Fiction, Fantasy, hints at Magic Realism - think Sword Art Online, Log Horizon, Ready Player One)
Available Chapters: 3
What do you do when your dream world traps you and leaves you powerless?
Kanda is a normal college student, plotting her way through the darkness of undergrad for a breath of fresh air. With the pandemic in tow, she’s stuck at home with her overbearing mother and absent twin brother as her country locks down for the second time.
But on Melting World Online (or rather, MWO), she is Moon - a lethal gun-wielder, known for streaming her tactics on the popular streaming site, Watcher. As the highest level human gun-wielder ever known, she streams her tactics in an attempt to help others surpass her.
On one fateful day, she spawned into MWO to find a peculiar pair of wings protruding from the square of her back, all of her equipment gone, and her level zeroed. When she thought it a trick, however, the “Exit Game” button has disappeared.

Wandering Queen (High Fantasy, Dystopian, LGBTQ+ - think Shannara Chronicles)
Available Chapters: 9
A queen must save her kingdom from the rumbling that can be heard from underground - threatening to drag them down once again.
As the queen of the first Surface nation in a millennium, Komen has a goal: liberate the rest of her people from servitude, from which they could never leave on their own, from a nation in the Undersurface. But when a rejected prince backed by gods threatens to ruin everything, Komen must take matters into her own hands before her and her people are dragged back underground to repent for taking their independence.
But will her proficiency in time and healing magic be enough to save her people? Or will the jilted prince come to forcefully claim what he deemed was rightfully his?
