A trilogy?

Most of that is fair. I will say though... The technical fight scenes are written the way they are because I have a lot of fun writing them that way.

You're absolutely right that I could spend more time using them for characterization. I don't think I would have even thought of her seeing human eyes and reacting like that. I guess I need to put some of my usual creativity in this direction.

As for Cover killing children and all that, I didn't want to spend too much time on it. It's an important part of Cover's background but he's also telling the abridged version. And yes, there are a few things he may or may not have left out.

However, Aurora isn't that innocent. She knew what she was doing when she went to stab those folks. She mowed down those mutants that were attacking the SG without really a second thought. The impact as more supposed to be her realizing her own mortality. She killed those guys fairly easily but it could have been her on the end of the knife.

At least, this scene anyway.

        What... 3 maybe 6 months? Besides I'm not sure I'm egotistical enough for all that. It'd be like the shrub critiquing the redwood.

            Well then. Have at thee sir and let slip the dogs of war! But you must return the favor eh!? And now I have to go dig up something you've written from the dusty and cobwebbed recesses of the site.... more
