Well, it wasn't all that bad...but it wasn't all that hot either.

I will give you some credit for trying to format the story; but then again, I will take away that credit with the fact that you "missed" the guidelines and never learned the Code. So we're back to sqaure one.

The storyline was pretty descent...it kept me reading. Now what is pretty common around fanfic of HBO: you had minor mistakes throughout.

Proof-read to catch those.

You've got an interesting plot, there, Mr. Lieberg.

My hat is off to you for your new method of formatting, but coding would be more efficient and easier to read.

There are errors, and some rough spots, but overall, decent. You have to watch some words, remember, it's "Through," not "Threw"

Your details are good, but there's enough room to put more detail in - and that could make your story go Three-Dimensional.


Good Luck

- Dave.

Very good formatting. Other than that, it was good

Yeah, you need to use the Code. I really like your effort of indenting though. But guess what? You can do that invisibly with coding.

I would suggest spelling out numbers. It helps make the story flow better.
Also, add more details. Things went by really fast in there. Slow it down; describe and explain more to give us a better idea of what is going on, has happened, and is going to happen.
Doctor Halsey didn't have Cortana with her. Doctor Halsey took Kelly. Thus, none of that really made sense to me.
About your "Spartan-IIIs". I just don't really think that they would revert back to grown people for the next project. The first group of Spartans had a civilian life before augmentation, and the next group didn't, so would you not assume that things would progress as they already had?

Sergeant Johnson is a Sergeant Major. He listens to "Metal" (ie- heavy metal) not simply "Rock and Roll."

Watch that repedetiveness, too.

Overall, well, you have some work to do. Smooth stuff out and get your facts straight. Proofread as well.

You can easily find out yourself, Mark.

It's simple, and easy! All you need to do is click on the "Preview Submission" button at the bottom of the Fan Fiction Submission Form. It's as easy as that.

I'm surprised you didn't notice it earlier. Just scroll down, way down, and you'll see it - it's there.
