Wow. After this, I’m going to need something comparatively cheery and uplifting. Now, where did my copy of The Road go?
Finally, a great story in lightspeed. Properly original and fun. Love it.
Now that was some wicked prose. I particularly liked “..but had not mastered avoiding punches to his face.”
Is it just me or is that a painting of Freema Agyeman?
That was actually great
That was pretty good!
The teabagging and the teamkilling and the pointless bunnyhopping at the end... yeah, it couldn’t be any more blatant :)
Part-way through, I got the sense that the Petty Officer was training a replacement; getting him accustomed to the killing, and having squad members die around him.
Accurate! If you read the interview with the author on Lightspeed’s website, he says the story is straight FPS parody.
So I think someone played too much Halo.
That could be said of pretty much any art by any artist ever. No matter how great the art being made is, it is infinitely harder for someone not already known to become known to the world at large. Was there a point there or were just being sour?
Thanks for reading it :)
Thanks so much! Locker rooms aren’t *too* bad, but yeah, I definitely got some looks about the things I like :)
That’s pretty great.
