QuoteFrom a PM by Allester:Allester's pack would be called "Arison" it means 'Power of Mana'. Celtic like habbits and Markings, very organized and well trained to hold their tempers when the Alpha's around, but short tempered when he's not. Feel free to use the 'Family Metal' in the story if you like. Might be interesting to see the looks on the Humans faces when they shoot him only to find the round lodged against his vest like it was armor. I could honestly see the confusion, the shock, and the "Crap we're screwed" look on their faces.

QuoteI'm glad to know that I'm not the only one that attaches a special significance to names. For me, names have a reason behind them. Though that would have been a nice addition, it would have required a similarly significant name for the other wolf pack, something I wasn't willing to do. The names are not important to the story.And here is a danger for not knowing certain "facts" about a character or their place in the fan fiction universe. Until I read your latest chapter, didn't know about that metalic fiber armor. Thankfully, our wolf doesn't get shot. (No, I'm not giving too much away.) Just to let you know, Allester makes his first appearance in Friday's installment. Once he joins the story as a character, he remains part of the story to the very end. Take a bow, he becomes one of the primary support character.
QuoteI agree. However, I'm assuming the nuclear weapons of the future have such a high yield of fisionable material that its affects can still be felt. Consider that nuclear fuel rods are considered so radioactive that it will take thousands of years to reach "safe" levels. That is one reason they are buried in salt mines. Here's part of the story I omitted. In an earlier version, I described how the morphs exploded the bomb. As I edited the story, I realized it wasn't an important point and discarded it. Just like the names of the two wolf packs, it added nothing. I cannot reveal that missing "chapter" as some of the material is used in the future.
QuoteYes, I switch between viewpoints as a means of showing the motivation behind the various characters. If you didn't know why the humans are so desperate to find their objective, you wouldn't understand the reasons behind the other world morph's actions. Knowing that there is more than just the obvious objective gives depth to the story.Even our Earth morphs will have viewpoints that give them motivation. I've always felt it is important to give your characters believable reasons for doing whatever they do. It's one reason why I find it a bit grating when an evil character has no more motivation than to become the foil to the story's hero.
Quote from: cairn destop on Jun 03, 2008, 09:46 PMJust out of curiosity, is anyone other than Allester reading this? Go ahead and post your thoughts, comments, or questions. After my participation in the writing survivor contest QB-2, there is nothing you can say that would make me feel bad.
