I haven't been keeping up with these, but I did read your first one over at the UNSC Chronicles. I'm gonn ahave to catch up on them.

Oh, and this pertains mostly to your first one, but have you ever read any of Matthew Stover's books? Your style in the first part reminds me a lot of his, whcih is definitely a good thing.

Actually, no, no I haven't. My style in the first story was an experiment brought on by lack of sleep, alcohol, and too much caffeine. It is the first and only time I've written like that (thank god).

Now, if you're gonna read my stories, I'd suggest Perilous Journey, which I consider to be my best Halofic to date. The one after Perilous Journey, A Walk in the Woods (Stories of a Soundtrack Parts 4, 5, and 6), is also pretty good, but concentrates more on story developement than action.

Pretty good, Meep. Why exactly is it called Stories of a Soundtrack though? Oh, and it gets 8/10

Well, each story in the series is named after a song in the Halo soundtracks, consecutively speaking. Right now, I'm on Ambient Wonder. It's a pretty ambitious project, one that will probably last years if I don't quit on it.

Neat. Are you planning on heading into the Halo 2 and Halo 3 soundtracks?

Really? I thought it was very good. I've always had difficulty writing in that style, I always slip back into a more straightforward style.

Actually, yes. I have the entire process plotted out and summarized. I'm also gonna start titling them more, er... attractively. Example: SoaS 7 -- Ambient Wonder Part 1. That's so people will be able to find my stories better if they're looking at the series, and doesn't turn them off. Seeing "Stories of a Soundtrack Part 7" can be intimidating for some, because it makes them think they have to read Parts 1-6 to get Part 7, like most series.

That's the beauty of this series: you can start anywhere along the way and get a story without having to read everything before then.

Very Happy Yay! Some recognition! I've been worried people would overlook my earlier entries.
