An interesting look at Mala and her feelings about her mixed heritage: on one hand she is practical and understands the necessity for cross-breeding, and on the other she can't stand the look of her own eyes. An intriguing character study!
Author's Response: Imagine being a member of a royal family, and having an obvious, glaring difference from that family. One that marks you as a servant. Yeah, she'd have a problem.

Nice prequel to Mala's Game - it shows her reasoning and determination, and makes what happens more than just nastiness on her part. UW, as always I bow to your talent!
Author's Response: If I remember, I may have begun both around the same time, but published this story on ff dot net first. I'm trying to think of some more stories about Mala and Zoltar, including some childhood tales.

UW, great story. This is the first of your Zoltar/Mala stories I've read. Now I need to go read the others.
Mala does seem to be more interested in saving the Spectran race than Zoltar.
Author's Response: Spectrans have that whole First Race (or Species) thing going. Not surprising that Zoltar would have problems producing hybrid offspring. He was taught about his superiority all his life. Now, he is interested in saving his world in the larger sense. Just not going about it the right way. 'We are the First Race: we do not ask for help from lesser beings.'
