I didn't USE you. I used a character with a similar name.

And thanks for the positive comments.

Nice, as usual. You bring the reader into the Halo universe better than anyone else I have read. It seemed to me that your writing was a bit halting this time, as if you had too many short sentences. For that reason, this one lacked some of the flow that the first one had. Also, your dialogue seemed stunted and unrealistic, and was the only aspect that distracted me from the story.

Wow, that is a lot of complaint for an excellent chapter Wink I will continue to follow this series. Great job.

A few small mistakes; capitalization, and what not. Just make sure to try and work all that stuff out. It's not big, but, as you know, little things add up.

Here's a brief tip. Try combining related words. Like "two seven foot somthing behemoths" could be turned into "two seven-foot-something behemoths". It's just that little tiny thing that makes it a little better here and there. And right now, that is the kind of thing you should be working on - as most of the major stuff is fine.
Another small thing is putting periods after an abbreviation. That can become a distraction and look a little cluttered. So, instead of "E.T.A." just use "ETA". Its simplicity is its benefit.

I agree with Chuckles that some of your sentenses were . . . clipped, or something. Your wording and sentense structure was just a tad off. So, the effect this has was to lower your overall flow.
Did you rush this chapter? Well, intentionally or not, you may well have. So, as you write your next story (or go over it in the case it has already been written) be sure to give it ample time to develop and improve itself before you post it.
I'd rather wait for a really good chapter than have rapidly posted just-good ones.

Yeah, the dialogue was slightly off, too. It was like it was a tad too straight-forward. Just subtle emotion and slight word changes could give it an entirely different feel. As well as what you describe after the dialogue that directly pertains to it.

Was Mendez a Master Chief? I thought he was just a Chief Petty Officer. Hmm. I might have to check that.


Overall, very nice, I liked it. But, the previous was a tad better; so, just work as hard as you can on your next. And take your time, don't think you have to get another story out as fast as you can write it. Good luck; and keep it up.
