good to see you're still around FOrunnER and this was an excellent chapter. interesting idea of what happens after Halo 2, especially with the Monitor betraying everyone AGAIN.

hope to see more.

Yes; it is indeed good to see you still alive and well. I thought you had left us for good. Welcome back; I hope you plan to stay.


Watch that punctuation with dialogue. You had it outside the quotes.

Also, watch using bold for dialogue. If it is a single large shout or what not, ALL CAPS can be okay, but use italics instead. But, if it is REALLY loud . . .

Watch those small mistakes. I noticed some places where words were misused, or the structure was slightly off, or the flow could have been better, and stuff like that.
Just try to work those out. It makes thing better as a whole.

I saw some specific instances of the above that I could have pointed out, but, I'll let you improve those on your own.
Oh, by the way; I think that it is "super-lunar" speads, or something like that. But not "aluminum."

That battle scene could have been improved with a more coherent set of details, but, I was just able to keep along.


Overall, this was not bad at all; I liked it. A few things to work out; and I hope they are from rust and not permenent corosion. Have fun with your next piece.

Well thanks for the reviews everybody. I'm surprised people actually know who I am, but its nice to know that they do.

Thanks for the tips on punctuation, and the tips about the bold/italics stuff MC. I'll make sure to keep that in mind for next chapter. And the whole super-aluminum, I knew that didn't make sense as soon as I wrote it, but I just couldn't figure out what it could be. Lunar fits better, although it still doesn't make perfect sense with what he's saying. Hopefully an accurate transcript will be released soon.

For this series I'm going to try to put more 'story' into it than action. I've read back through my many (and saddeningly uncomplete) peices and realized thats been my main fault. Although I'm rusty, I'm aiming for this to be my best story yet. The first couple of chapters will still have quite a bit of action, but thats just necessity for the direction I'm taking in this story.

Updates for this will not be as frequent thanks to some computer problems, and my first completely originial story for which I am still in the 'brainstorming' session of. Thanks for reading guys.

Peace Out
-FOrunnER

Well, here's how it fits.

Luminal:
[quote=]The unit of luminous flux in the International System, equal to the amount of light given out through a solid angle by a source of one candela intensity radiating equally in all directions.[/quote]
Make more sense now?

Well, here's the link to the dictionary site [http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=Luminal].


Anyway; I'll keep an eye out for the next installment.
