Re: .Shift.

No, def. not the end of the story yet :) I just had to take a hiatus from writing and deal with some issues IRL. Now that I'm back online and have some free time I will be catching up on my favorite stories on here and then posting some more to this one sometime later tonight. Thanks for the comment...

Re: .Shift.

Okay, last chapter edited and rewritten. Quick question for anyone interested in seeing the end of this story; Should I begin a new thread to post the rewritten story as a whole i.e: Im redoing the entire first four chapters and then editing the rest of the story. Would you guys like to see the chan...

Re: .Shift.

Chapter 16.5 I join Montgomery at the rear canvas wall and fight to suppress the Goosebumps slowly rising on my arms and neck. The air back here feels ten degrees colder than the rest of the tent, which doesn't help dampen the creep factor in here one bit. Montgomery doesn't immediately acknowledge...

Re: .Shift.

Chapter 16.4 Captain Montgomery just stands there in the shadows near the back of the tent, either ignoring my question or lost in contemplation. Just when I think to clear my throat and get his attention he turns his face towards me in a weird, slow movement. The small crooked smile on his lips do...

Re: .Shift.

Chapter 16.3 I consider everything the good Captain has been telling me and the conclusions only make me sick. Forced slavery, rape, all in the name of a safe "military society". No amount of whiskey (did I just say that?) can numb me to those statements and the pending damnation that comes with th...

Re: .Shift.

Chapter 16.2 The inside of Montgomery's command tent is a lot like any other soldiers when it came right down to it. Mostly organized and well kept with just a hint of scruff or dirt here and there, just enough to show the big difference in a man's logical order and a woman's ability to keep things...

Chapter 16 (a weary journey without an end) The bright afternoon light sears a path into my eyes as I make my way out from the quiet armory and just stare into the remnants of our country's bedraggled military might. I stand there for awhile gratefully absorbing the sun's heat and reflecting on the...

Re: .Shift.

Chapter 15.3 The array of mechanized death set out before me is staggering to the mind. Row after row of esoteric circuitry screams up at me its willingness to unleash storms of fire and death. I slowly walk the line, inspecting each as I go. Thomas is kind enough to list off the statistics of each...

Re: .Shift.

Chapter 15.2 Long and wide metal shelves follow down each side of me as I in turn follow Thomas down the shadowy aisle containing a massive selection of firearms and ammo. I take a few moments to properly admire the collection much as I did on my last visit here. There is something to be said for s...

Chapter 15 (A travesty of allies) After spending an hour or so up on the wall Thomas and I make our way back down and head for the armory once again. Thomas it seems, has struck up a fast friendship with the old goat of a supply sergeant there and wants to show me a few special toys he has talked h...

Chapter 14.3 The steps that Thomas and I take up to the apex of the wall isn't quite as poorly constructed as I first thought. We make it up after a few minutes of climbing and I get my first good look out at the world beyond the wall since waking up here a few days back. Its not as scenic as one m...

Chapter 14.2 "PUTO!" Thomas exclaims loudly in my ear from behind and just about gives me a goddamn heart attack. "What in the hell are you out here watching these assholes for? Man come on lets go up on the wall and see whats good!" He has grace enough to ignore me jumping like a scared little sch...

Chapter 13.6 PFC Duggan takes off and leaves me there, staring stupidly down at my new ID badge. I guess this is how promotions work in "today's" army. That or maybe things are more desperate than they seem. I head over to the mess tent and wolf down some breakfast before meeting up with Thomas. Th...

Re: Ender of Ways (Writing Test)

I think this shows merit so far, interesting flow of describing things which keeps it from falling into the ho-hum zombie trash bin.
