Loved the three seashells reference

Thank you for mentioning My Lai and Hugh Thompson (the real life blueprint for Trudy Chacon, i think, and one of the greatest heros of american military history).
People really need to learn their history or repeat the mistakes made before.

I loved this story from the chapter one, and my liking only grew as I proceeded onwards. Unusual point of view, light humour, nice attitude (not being outright hostile to the newcomers and giving them a chance instead), interesting ideas being discussed throughout the story, some pretty strong scenes, the suspense, and overall positive mood of the conclusion... all the while staying true to the original sci-fi aspects (extra points for that).
Sad to hear you are not going to process any of the ideas listed at the end, but thanks for enumerating them nonetheless. They make a nice epilogue.
Thank you. Always nice to find something this enjoyable.

i really enjoyed this story it was very well written and im glad i read it :D i hope this isnt the end
| Spider-Hand 8/8/10 . chapter 15
Correct me if I'm wrong. From what I recall, those who arrived aboard the Centurion never learned that Jake no longer has a human driver body. This would be a great plot point to resolve.

Great writing. The flow is smooth and fast paced, the dialogue is fantastic and the plot really suspends disbelief.

Zura, I loved your last two chapters as well. I especially liked the trick of having the re-capture of the base being told later by Jake. Is Alberon really going back to Earth? He's a cool character. Don't you think we could create and new avatar for Don? It'll be interesting to see what you do next. Keep writing, Irayo.

Irayo, Zura, this chapter was intense and exciting. You had me worrying that Max had actually been killed! I'm so glad he was not. Now what about Jake? You've worried me again. What a great chapter. I look forward to more. BTW, I wish you well on your screen-writing venture. Kìyevame.

This is the beat fanfic I've ever read! I'm serious. This could easily be a published book, or a movie, a sequel to Avatar. There are a few problems, but most are just typos anyway. Amazing!
| ilvos01 6/27/10 . chapter 10
I like it. Very well done.
| Judilee 6/27/10 . chapter 10
Zura, I just discovered your fantastic Avatar stories today and couldn't stop till I read them all. I hope that you can at least squeeze in one last chapter for 'Ever Skyward' to wrap things up, but many of the best stories leave the ending up to the reader's imagination, so I guess I'll just have to make do with that instead. Anyway, I wish you the best of luck on your you again for a wonderful reading experience! Irayo, Eywa ngahu.

Dude/Dudett, the part where u described jake in all those weapons i was like "how the heck he get all those!". awsome chapter.
| TopKat90 6/26/10 . chapter 10
Smeg head Rhimmer? Like I would miss such an obvious Red Dwarf referance! lol
Ya got me waiting for the next chapter now...
| cosmic-cube-keeper 6/6/10 . chapter 9
A wild ride so far, looking forward to more.
| Muugin 6/5/10 . chapter 9
While I dig the spirit of the story the smaller details do pinch my fingers a bit. It's jut amateur hour for Hamlin and his troopers, so much so I beginning to doubt his credentials for command. It's a dead idea, but an idea none to less, to sit around and merely fortify his position. But he's not looking at his offensive options, he doesn't seem to be trying to figure out an escape route in the event things go sideways, and he doesn't seem to be at all interest at any munitions and heavy weapons that are operational at his disposal. Further more when the Na'vi open fire randomly. Is no one looking for muzzle flashes or even bothering with thermal imaging? Another thing is Jake seems a little to comfortable with Tess and her gang running and gunning on their own independent from command. Given his traditional military history, it would seem that would be something he would want to suppress given the need to have absolute command of every asset on his side. Now it can be easily argues that the position of the narrative doesn't leave a place to NJP someone, but for me acting alone like that has always been a heavy no no.
Ah, maybe these are all just to reflective of my personal taste in how I see these events as an individual. It's all together functional and I can see the logic behind things. Moving on, it's well off thus far and I do honestly look forward to more.
