Better a dress than a suit…
Galadin always wanted to go the glorious presentation balls, the ritualistic dances and events centered around the debutantes entering High Society looking for marriage. However, Galadin's sex makes it impossible, only teenage girls were allowed to be presented as a debutante. The most Galadin could hope for was attending as a suitor, a role they didn't want.
A chance encounter with a shocking Naval officer pushes Galadin to face their own desires and to dredge up the courage to finally ask for what they wanted. But would that drive see Galadin attending the balls as a suitor or as Glorias, a debutante?
