Hi, newcomer here! *waves* Love the site. I thought I'd start off with a theme I love, and see if others relate. To start off I'm a huge heroine downfall nut, and love scenarios involving the 'aftermath' of a heroine defeated in a ryona situation, so while this doesn't concern ryona proper, it concerns what results from it. Hope that qualifies as an acceptable post :) I love stories where a heroine is defeated in some situation and is at the mercy of the victor, and then, faced with either death or enslavement, gives away her friends/allies/cause, by relinquishing information that will lead to her friends' defeat, in order to save herself, only to find afterwards that she won't be saved(guro stories) or spared from enslavement(non-guro stories), and gets the fate anyway. The gist is that the defeated heroine picks the selfish option in a climactic moral choice, yet is still subjected to whatever outcome she wished to avoid, thus causing the downfall of herself and her allies, in one fell swoop. I'd love to hear your input, whether you like it, dislike it, or don't care :P Cheers!
