Ritana, a young woman from the Mistborn Village, has dreams of greatness. Her plans for life involve studying at the Arcane University and becoming a great mage. However, all of her plans and dreams are forced to be forsaken after her village had its livelihood ruined by a terrible flood. She was selected to marry the monster living on the nearby Rainy Peaks Mountain, in order to appease it and spare the village its wrath.

After arriving to meet her would-be husband, however, she learns that there is more to the monster than her village had ever known.

!!Characters


!!Ritana

* {{Brainy Brunette}} She is a well-read amateur magic user and has dark hair.
* {{Constantly Curious}} This is what caused her to play around with magic, read what she could and what led to her learning the great secret of the world around her.
* [[EarthMother Earth Maiden]] She has shades of this despite her virginity and lack of a family to care for.
* {{Feminine Women Can Cook}} She is acceptably feminine and she does housework to make herself useful.
* {{Erotic Dream}} Ooooh yeah...she has a very lovingly detailed one [[spoiler:and then she wakes up and realizes she has to be around Alaric who she had the sex dream about]]
* {{Green Eyes}}
* {{Plucky Girl}} She refuses to give up and is generally happy and almost a {{Determinator}} at times. But, this trait is what leads to her offer being accepted by Alaric.



!!Alaric Goldenscales [[spoiler: AKA Lord of the Mountain]]

* {{Celibate Hero}} He is always preoccupied with his duties as a druid and finds that keeping the world from collapsing around him is a far better use of his time.
* {{Chaste Hero}} He really thinks he is above romance and overall does not see the point in trying a romantic relationship. This stems from his lack of understanding of those emotions. And that he sees everybody around him as his family and he does not want to cross into that squick fest.
* {{Dumb Blond}} He has shades of this with ditzy moments.
* {{Druid}} He preserves the forests and has great respect for life in all forms.
* {{Hair Decorations}} He has feathers, beads and the like in his hair as many druids on Ullord do. And this trope is not invoking {{Real Men Wear Pink}} making it a gender inversion of the trope.
* {{Hair of Gold Heart of Gold}} He is a gentle, loving person.
* {{Really 700 Years Old}} He several decades old, but appears to be a young man in his twenties. This is the norm for Ullord dragons.
* {{What is this thing you call love}} Despite being a mortal he seems to have this mentality. But, he is capable of being happy for others who find love.
* {{Yellow Eyes of Sneakiness}} Played straight at first. And then it is subverted at a certain point.
