    Much prefer long to never. Especially a good and well written story like B&L. Lol. It's been done wonderfully. And given my own recent experience writing tentacles, I can see the fun involved. . And I think you did well in combining the two opposite spectrums into a disturbing, yet interesting and kinky, scene. The intro of the Devil is creepy enough to add to the environment and well done creep vibe. As for what just happened, there's several things I can think of, but that's the Joy's of reading, after all . And definitely loved the zombie vibe while reading. Reminded me of a few old movies, like the good old Romero films. As for the line, I thought I recognized it, but I still laughed my ass off at it and I think it works far better in the context here than Battle: LA. Lol. Adding YouTube and headlines definitely works. Recently saw a headline on YouTube "I Gave Birth To Demon" and when I was reading yours, it was like... Yep, sounds like people. Spread any information they can without facts. Or blurring them into obscurity. Honestly, I think it works fantastically. I like this change. I think it works for the better. Expanding on Mia allows for a better experience in terms of the characters and has been allowing a more realistic feel to them. I actually like it. Specifically because there's a chance of following the cliche (albeit built up enough by the bookstore being frequented by Sabine and the reason being a relative, who sticks the books with hers) or subverting that cliche. But still, well done in writing the scene. I do like the portrayal you have. It kind of feels natural. Although, not my experience, so maybe I'm off wildly. But, that said, it is possible that her own transformation is affecting her too. She seems to shift addictions (from drugs to sex to drugs to sex almost based off what she can get around her). And that's a good idea. Thumbs up! And yeah... Bring more Sam! More Sam! More Sam!! (Lol .) I do like her interactions between them and the fact that Kris thinks of her more than occasionally shows her love for Sam as deeply as she does. AND... As always, you're welcome for it. It's a great story and I eagerly await the next installment.

    @InBrightestDay… Well, that's quite an evaluation. Lol. Being completely honest, I enjoy hearing the thoughts, theories, ideas, and even some forms of canon not of my own. Hearing that my writing gets people thinking, I'm glad. And unlike some people, what I fully intended to be isn't the end all and be all, so there isn't really any wrong thought. . I'm kind of laid back like that. Lol. (Besides, all reading lends itself to the reader's perspective as they do.

    Well, it seems Last Full Measure is popular... At least with @InBrightestDay, who graciously leaves another review. (On the opposite news, I'm starting to think I might just need to replace the shelf.) From InBrightestDay on March 24, 2019 Well, I feel rather conflicted with this one. I mean, since Chapter 1 Celeste has been putting herself and others in danger by hiding her illness. On the other hand, I can't help but feel bad for her because...well, woman's mentally ill, and is in that state because of horrific trauma. The same applies to other characters. Lian and Adara are covering for Celeste, which could well get her (or them) killed, but you can understand why they're doing it too. It's unprofessional, and normally when you care for someone as Lian and Adara clearly do for Celeste, you want them to get help, but right now, removing her from the team will mean...what? There aren't exactly surviving therapists on Hecatoncheires given the monster attack, so they'd have to keep her under guard, I suppose, which would use up yet more personnel, whom they are going to need if and when the monsters return... So yeah, sympathy for everyone's decisions here. On the other end of the emotional spectrum, I laughed a lot at the swearing in this chapter, with my personal favorites being "Holy flaming dogshit!" and "Fuck me with a spoon." Finally, we now have confirmation that this was notdone by humans, but what are these creatures? Now Celeste and a small team are going underground, which is usually a bad thing to do in a monster movie, so things are likely to get dicey… *** Well, I feel rather conflicted with this one.

So yeah, sympathy for everyone's decisions here. I will admit, I was really worried about adding that in. On one side, I know that to many people, it makes Celeste selfish and, as such, unsympathetic as she is actively putting people in danger knowing her condition. On the other, to some, I know it would be sympathetic; a flawed character in the way that people could associate with. In the end, I kind of went for what worked for the story (even if, to some, she becomes disliked and hated). On the other end of the emotional spectrum, I laughed a lot at the swearing in this chapter, with my personal favorites being "Holy flaming dogshit!" and "Fuck me with a spoon." Lol. I'm glad you laughed at them. I certainly wanted to avoid the "direct" approach. And, while flaming dogshit is not in my vernacular, "well, fuck me with a spoon" is definitely one of mine when it comes to being surprised. Finally, we now have confirmation that this was notdone by humans, but what are these creatures? Now Celeste and a small team are going underground, which is usually a bad thing to do in a monster movie, so things are likely to get dicey… Well, I certainly hope it comes out as dicey. Its definitely trying to be written like that. Lol.

    Wannabe Me Running Round

    Thanks, BW. Thought I'd let you know (even after reporting) in case he went around and caused trouble.
  8. Apparently I've attracted enough of a following that people want to be me. There is a new user ".tcr" running around. I submitted a report on my Star Trek Adventurer promo page, as this one wants so badly to be me, he tried to write a chapter of it there. Not sure about it, but, figured I'd let you know before he really goes out and starts affecting things.

    A review on Remembrance? Now I must be dreaming. Nope, it's a review... from @InBrightestDay! From InBrightestDay on March 22, 2019 This was a cool little oneshot. The violence in the battle scene was visceral and pretty brutal (the sword-through-the-head kill Phileia does with that rebel was a standout), and the action was quite engrossing. It was also kind of an interesting detail that no one bleeds red: Elves have teal blood and Hakorn have purple. I also wanted to bring up the main character's name. It's kind of an interesting contrast. Phileia is presumably derived from the Greek "philia" meaning love or affection, and Apollyon is also Greek, but means something like "the destroyer," and of course Apollyon is the Greek translation of the Hebrew name Abaddon, the angel of the bottomless pit. Given that Phileia has red skin, orange eyes and horns, I'd imagine that's not a coincidence. I'm kind of curious about the other words. I knew from Last Full Measure that you draw from many languages, so are the Elvan and Hakorn words from real world languages or did you invent those yourself? *** This was a cool little oneshot.

It was also kind of an interesting detail that no one bleeds red: Elves have teal blood and Hakorn have purple. Firstly, thanks . When I first had it up here, I got really discouraged and pulled it and shelved a story that would have continued Phileia's story forward. There wasn't much love for it. Second: Definitely love my brutality in stories. I think it adds a realism to the scenario that toning down takes away, if that makes sense. And yep, no red blood there. Lol. I kind of wanted different, though I'm not sure the small detail made any difference in the over all arch, it still was different. I also wanted to bring up the main character's name.

Given that Phileia has red skin, orange eyes and horns, I'd imagine that's not a coincidence. Definitely not a coincidence on either account. The contrast was intentional, and hopefully drawn out a little through her softer interactions with her lover and the harder change when she goes full warrior. And the fact that the Hakorn have horns, red skin, orange eyes... Kind of reminiscent of a certain... demonic entity... Nope, not ringing a bell. . But I am glad you picked up on the contrasting names. I looked up some in order to find ones that kind of fit and had the idea I wanted to convey without banging people with the bat over their heads. Lol. I'm kind of curious about the other words. I knew from Last Full Measure that you draw from many languages, so are the Elvan and Hakorn words from real world languages or did you invent those yourself? This is a bit of a mix. The city name of Vltavas is reality based. I took the name from the Vltava River that runs through Prague (more because of the first and final battles, 30 years apart, in the Thirty Years War, much like the Thirty Years Conflict in Remembrance). But the vast majority is my own creation. (Shameless promo, I created a language (Straxi) in Blood Prize that is routinely used throughout, if interested.)

In 1999, after a failed attempt to capture live specimens on a second island, resulting in a tyrannosaur running through San Diego, InGen was bought out by Masrani Global. And Masrani has plans. Former Marine Aurora Sharon is hired to assist in the capture of assets on Isla Sorna. But her team is tasked with more than they expected. There's already one genetically altered dinosaur on the island, what else are Masrani Global and Doctor Wu hiding? Feedback: Much appreciated. It helps to understand and improve.

    Another review from @Sinfulwolf on Hunted. YAY! From SinfulWolf on March 20, 2019 Your action is indeed improving. There was some good fight in here, with good amounts of gore, and good descriptions. I was able to follow what was happening, and apreciate the brutality of it all. I think you should watch for the term "slit to tit" though. That really feels like something someone would say in conversation. And even then, it comes across very crude this brutal fight, and almost a touch disrespectful to your female protagonist. Also, these last few chapters have been the one fight, and they're all ending in cliff hangers. This is starting to drag a bit, and instead of building the tension and concern, it's just stretching things unneccesarily. Especially since these chapters are fairly short. I think you should wrap the fight up at least next chapter, instead of using another cliffhanger. *** Your action is indeed improving.

And even then, it comes across very crude this brutal fight, and almost a touch disrespectful to your female protagonist. I'm glad the action is improving. It's always good when the reader can follow the fight and it's great you enjoyed the gore and brutality. I changed the statement in the chapter. Definitely didn't want disrespect in there, at least unintentional disrespect. Also, these last few chapters have been the one fight, and they're all ending in cliff hangers.

I think you should wrap the fight up at least next chapter, instead of using another cliffhanger. Good to know. You'll be happy to know that the fights are pretty much done (and this one is).
  15. Feeling like rewriting some of the oneshots I formerly had up here and took down, possibly reposting them.  Maybe.  Possibly.
