First of all, sadly, this isn't the true 4th chapter here... (I apologize to those looking forward to another chapter... I'll be working on it as soon as I can!)
Yes, I know I probably shouldn't do this to you guys, but I'd like to share a few thoughts with you all. And, well... this is pretty much the only way.
First order of business, I'll be responding to your reviews here in chapter. Maybe your not supposed to do this, but... To hell with it. Rules were made to be broken! I'll be doing that in this announcement to the two that have reviewed. When the actual fourth chapter is completed, this message (excluding the review responses.) will be erased.
Secondly, I'm a very open minded individual, about... well, life in general. I like to consider my story in progress a "beta" so to speak. If you guys are perhaps interested in seeing a character of yours appear in this, then by all means, PM me and I'll make it happen! If it's a character like... from your story, I'll probably treat him/her as a guest star, more than anything, but original characters made into this story will remain in canon, and you will be credited. Promise! :)
I'm doing this and the review thing for two reasons. One, I'm trying my best to get others involved, and make a name for myself. Two, I consider it payback, for your interest in my story at all! Don't want to get all personal on you, but... Seeing anyone compliment, or complain, or show interest in my story at all, whether you were just being nice or legitimately interested, means more to me than you'll ever know. I'm very easily discouraged, and also, I have a tendency to create things like this, get pretty far on it, and then just scrap it, because I don't think it's good enough.
Lastly, I'd like to ask for your support. I really want to make this into something incredible, something amazing, something that EVERYONE in the world knows about, like it's such a common thing, that when people discuss it, it's hardly a surprise to overhear a friend talk about it amongst other friends. As I said above, I'm easily discouraged, and have trouble updating. I'd say I'd be lucky if I update one chapter a week... *cries* The fastest way I can possibly update this is if you guys are interested in what I have to offer, and I'm aware that you are.
I'm not trying to get more reviews, or followers... What does that even mean? That your story has been on longer than the rest? That people actually decided to comment? I'm not interested in that. I'm just interested in seeing my story complete. I could die happy if it was completed, even on here. What I am not interested in is seeing this story, a story that I've dreamed of, and thought of every single day of my life, die. I know my punctuation may not be perfect, or my choice of words. But I like to think that I'm on to something big here!
(Also, PM me for a special surprise. Don't really want to mention it in this "fourth chapter")
This is such a huge project, I would go ahead and say it's safe to say this story (At least on FictionPress) could effortlessly be 150 to maybe even 250 chapters long before it's finished. I'm not making this up as I go, at least not the big stuff. I've been thinking about this story for years and years, and I think completing it would also take years and years. Someday, I hope to see it become more than a story. My ultimate dream is for this to become a pretty sweet animated series, or even an anime! Something cool like that! A man can dream...
Anyways, I think I've said all that I'd like to say... Thanks for taking the time to read this, and I hope you can level with me here. I sure as hell can't do this alone...
1st review from Tapp
... honestly? This is probably the most helpful review I've ever seen! None of what you said crossed my mind at all, and it made me think heavily over it. It's also made me more cautious to consider stuff like this in the future, but to answer your questions. Well... It's actually quite hard to do so. I will say the nurse probably didn't think twice. Lucky isn't a scaredy cat you know! He was a soldier, trained to be ready for anything. Yeah, the nurse probably didn't know that, but I did actually edit the first chapter to where the nurse tells Lucky he doesn't want him going anywhere but to the next room over, or they could both get into trouble. Now, as for Lucky fighting the wolves, he wouldn't have even fought them if the Overlord hadn't said the things that he did. The Overlord said that only to get under his skin, and nothing more. Plus, it's not a for sure thing that the nurse is in danger, Lucky can't tell if the Overlord is making an empty threat or not. That, I honestly left alone, but... It does make me think, and I may change it at a later occasion.
And my story is many things, but yes, a fun piece to read is definitely what I'm going for here!
2nd review from i prune
Lucky isn't so lucky, your right... He lost his best comrade, his one and only friend in an uncertain future, and to make matters worse, he's dying, and headed towards HIS planet, a planet scarred by the very things he fought so valiantly to vanquish from not just the hands of evil, but from everyone's hands!
But there's a reason they call him that, you know.
And as for the fission bombs? I just called them that because, well, I wanted to I guess. Thought the name sounded cool, but make no mistake, a fission bomb is just as deadly and dangerous as the dormant bombs on our own, true, non fictional world. Honestly, I plan for my story to be packed with my own feelings towards things that I get very philosophical over. Nuclear weapons are just one of them, and I have a very negative feeling about them. The choices made by few individuals with such weapons can affect thousands of innocent people, as it already has... Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Chernobyl... Humanity should have learned a thing or two from it.
Yet we only desire more, don't we? What a dangerous thing to desire.
