This was good, Kind of confusing though. Who or what was the creature in the woods that the Elite trio killed? 8.8/10

That was really good, and I only noticed one or two small mistakes or instances where I would have used different wording, but it was a great story.

I'm still wondering about that thing they were chasing. Could it have been a spartan, a brute or even a flood juggernaut or something.

Great story, shows how much the Covenant hate the human race.

I have one question. Does this take place before or after the invasion of Earth. If before, is it before Reach as well?

Thanks for the great read.

8/10

Alright 'Som, I edited it and fixed using the link.

Thanks, my pleasure to help out.


The Northern Taiga? Oops, Capital. Yeah, I get that all the time. Don't worry too much about that.

Alright, aside from the stuff we talked about last night, nothing really. Looking good there, I like the styles and the setting, I like how you made the characters seem IN the setting, not just 'there.' Thumbs up to you for that!

Catch you later,

- Dave.

Yeah, it was a bit confusing huh?

This was an invasion of Earth. Me, Solidus, and possibly Commander Demitri Wolf and Mark Lieberg are working on it. I wrote it up and got it proofread by Dave in one night. Mind you it was midnight when I did this.




Edit by Dave: Oops, 'Som, sorry, I had to edit out that little spelling mistake. Aw well.

An ancient creature guarding the "Cradle of Life", or in this series what the Covenant believe to be the Ark.

Dave, where's MY hell yeah? Razz

- AACK!
- ...
- Oh yeah, and a Hell Yeah to you too!

Yeah, a Hell Yeah for making the characters seem that they were in the setting, not just placed with a backdrop. In a very faced-paced piece that's very hard to do, and I thought you pulled that off very well, and for that, the Hell Yeah is yours!

- Dave.

Very good job.

There were some GPS mistakes here and there, but a few always slip by despite the best proof reading. Your flow was good, and descriptions were right on par. I would have liked to hear more scenery descriptions about that old forest, or maybe the towns, but I was able to get by without them. I would have also enjoyed a more drawn-out scene of the three Elites with that "shadow," making it more onimous or tactful, but for the short length of this story I thought it was done well.

Keep up the good work.

I liked it. Aside from one or two spelling errors one instance of repetition it was technically very good.

In terms of material it was intriguing. I loved how descriptive you were with the introduction. I also really liked how the Elites were portrayed as stoic fanatics as one would assume they would be. Sometimes people tend to humanize them too much.

I also found it slightly confusing though I got the impression it was intentionally so and will be explained later on... that is if there is a "to be continued"... I hope there is!

4/5

Nice one! Good details, and nice flow - I just wish it was longer. (I know I'm a hyprocrite writing that. Razz )

Looking forward to more!
