Ooh, scary

OK, if you really NEED to know -
i SO enjoy the "practical" touch in your text - the "how to shit in the woods" kind of angle, how many pairs of underwear to pack, what type of socks to wear, etc.
Maybe it's because i think about those aspects a lot myself, i don't know.
But without it, thhese stories just wouldn't be the same

(Now, the real reasons (seriously) for not saying anything:
1) i did get a very powerful experience from reading and don't want to ruin it with babble
2) i didn't like it and i don't have anything constructive to say to help improving it
3) i've only read the tiniest fraction of the whole fan-fiction section, the most recent one and i fear to be unfair towards all the authors who have posted here before... )

EDIT:
reading the little boy's response above ... it think this needs clarification:
the second part of my post refers to the earlier joking "no feedback unless..."; this is a general musing on the topic "why i don't say anything" - not to do with the story at hand.
---END QUOTATION---



OK. But I'm confused. You like the 'practical touch' but didn't like this story (reason 2)? Is that right, or a typo?
Care to clarify a bit more on that?
And I get your reasons for not wanting to judge before it's done, etc. Very wise.
Anyway, you're still going in. Later. lol.

Quantum, NATOguns: Thanks. Been getting on with editing and some new writing, but this is just one of about four writing projects on the go - not all STALKER related - so I'm having to hop from one to t'other quite a lot.

Nooo....
OK, apologies left and right - i mixed specific and general information into one post.
Now that i read it later, i see how it "sounds"

So, i'll thry again:

This part is about your writing.
I do indeed like that stuff

The "3 reasons not to say anything"- i meant that in general- about anyones work anywhere. So, 2nd try here as well:
since you've been joking about why wasn't too willing to speak up and give a comment, and so far i only joked back... i thought i'd list the reasons here - serious this time.
- reason one - the piece read/heard/seen/ played has been a profound personal experience and i do not want to break that spell with something as banal as spoken words
- reason two - there was something about the piece i've read/heard/ saw that didn't feel right ... but i appreciate the effort of the creator and at the same time i do not have any good advice at hand how to improve the piece (if i had, i'd say soething)
- reason three - the piece i've read is posted to a huge depository of like-minded stories which i haven't yet got to reading for various reasons. I fear that by commenting the newer works without knowing the others that i still see advertised by their authors i'm being unfair somehow.


There - how does that sound
Also, i think i just found a fourth reason for not speaking up about someone's work:
4) saying a few words can create such an avalance of confusion, it takes hours of careful phrasing to clear that up later.

lol. Funny thing was, a little while after posting, the penny dropped and I understood. So apologies from me, too. I should have used my head a bit more because you were fairly clear. Just a case of not seeing the forest for the trees.

But you're still going in. It was actually the 'missing piece' I was looking for to take me to the conclusion.

Once again, an impressive piece of work to add to a great up-coming story.

One thing I really like about the main character is his military experience and how he's able to use that to his advantage to know more about a situation before it unfolds, and deal with it accordingly as it happens with a cool mind. Also, Blondie sounds more and more like a bombshell the more I read... I can see dirty, dirty things happening to her (not counting the obvious face-plant in the swamp, of course )

I'm continuing work on "Rebirth" myself and just posted the latest entry in my thread if you're interested. DO NOT stop writing, you're good at it and this story is brilliantly constructed.

psynexus: Ta. And yes, in my mind's eye, she's a bombshell, but...well...wait and see.

I was reading Life and Death till the wee hours of the morning, actually. Read 'til my eyes hurt so bad I couldn't stand staring at the screen anymore. Seems like we have a lot of similar ideas - though I see the comms system a bit differently (PDA more like an iPhone, and while they can detect each other, they only 'see' when line of sight is established).

stooe: Thanks. For publishing...it's always an option, provided all the legal BS can be met and there's a market (and I know there is, and quite a large one, at that).

Cheers for the comments, guys.
