Alright, folks, this is the shortest update weíve had in a while, and itís gonna be a pretty short one. Thereís only two submissions, and Iím not gonna go into huge detail with them.

The two entries are:

Legacy Ch.2 by David Yurman

and

Tau Chi II: Ch. 4 Ė Genesis by Myth

Legacy is a non-canon Halo 3, more or less. And itís terribly mediocre. It really isnít bad, itís just not particularly interesting. And thatís a problem when youíre writing an alternate version of something official: it better be damn interesting, or else why would someone read it when theyíve already got the official version? David here isnít a bad writer, he just needs to work at it a bit.

Tau Chi II, on the other hand, is a story following a Covenant invasion of a UNSC colony world, and a simultaneous investigation of Forerunner ruins on the planetís southern pole. Itís well-written and has a solid grasp of canon. It still has its issues, though. The story is a tad unoriginal, itís got the Fanfic clichť of Elites respecting humans almost too much, and one part at the end plays out almost exactly like a certain scene from Halo CE.

Neither entry particularly impressed me. Davidís entry was mediocre, but not bad. Mythís entry was solid, but not great. So, no real question, the Fic Pick of the Week is:

Tau Chi II: Ch. 4 Ė Genesis

Thanks for reading, everyone. Hopefully next weekís batch is a bit more lively.
