This story was amazing! I loved it. :) Brilliant job with the development of the plot and characters!

Brilliant as usual. One quick question though. Why in the name of sanity did they not have a half intelligent guard? Honestly you would think that the military would lock up all the avatar drivers considering they were on the blue monkeys side. But NOOOOO they have to let them use those avatars to ruin everything. Great story :)

I would have preferred the end to go more like this:
Jokes aside, I thought it was a spectacular finish to a moving story. Seeing the protagonists come through that much hell put a smile on my face.
Best of luck in your writing career.

What a climatic chapter. I love how you've portrayed Quaritch, he causes me to hate, pity and lauch all at the same time.
| Hat O' Doom chapter 7 . 12/2/2010
I gotta say, I really enjoyed this story. I just finished reading it and it has totally put me in an Avatar mood. Time to watch the movie again!

Superb chapter, I like the desperation element sown so deeply into the plot; it snares the mind's complete interest.
| Bigoldfrog chapter 4 . 11/21/2010
That Quaritch would only stop the execution on account of excess paperwork put me in uncontrollable laughter. Another great chapter
| Bigoldfrog chapter 3 . 11/20/2010
Jake and Neytiri's situation is utterly heart wrenching. Superb chapter.
| Bigoldfrog chapter 2 . 11/17/2010
I don't know who to cheer for.. The Na'vi defending their home or the pilots trying to eke out survival and uphold the glue of the military by following orders.
Really puts an emotional twist on it, a twist I find captivating.

Enjoyed the story you say?
I love it, one of the best I read in a long time.
But the question is?
Besides the fact their are those cheep corporate bast*** up top. Also they can work without Unobtanium. Just cost a helluva of a lot more. They took the easy way out with Pandora, so maybe a little, good old honest work wouldn't hurt anybody?
Plus I have the feeling the deaths of so many will not go buy so easy, the RDA might see it as their chance to get back in, just have to step up their game a bit.
But in the end, is to send a neutral investigation team to Pandora to find out the real truth before, the corporation, or if they do try something, want to make sure.
You know, a idea came to mind, about a reporter, ex elite special forces, a Colonel, but good Colonel. Also an old friend of Jake, but that didn't matter as this was one of those few good old soldiers that are hard to find.
Hes comes to Pandora, with nothing but his main weapon a small camera.

I never did like the Colonel.

I sorry I have not gone trough the whole story yet. But this is something so good, you must make time in order to just sit down, and enjoy reading it?
Awesome job. _.

Love it, I will read more.

Once again, thanks for the prompt update. I'm sad to see this story come to an end, but at the same time, the closure is satisfying.
I'd been wondering throughout the whole story how you would end up addressing the issue of Jake's avatar being destroyed. Having read "Aftermath," I really should've seen this coming.
I have mixed feelings about transferring Jake into Lindquist's avatar. "Scientifically" speaking, I don't really buy it. You seem to be treating the physical brain as analogous to a computer's "hardware," with a person's soul being analogous to "software." From there, you seem to draw the conclusion that any brain is theoretically capable of running any "software."
Granted, our current understanding of the brain isn't perfect, but a lot of what makes you the person you are *is* in fact hard-coded into the physiological structures of your brain. Your personality is more like "firmware" than "software," so I don't think it could be so easily transferred to a non-matching avatar. In the scriptment, we see that avatars are not only genetically matched to their drivers, but they are also psionically linked during the space voyage, during which the avatar's brain becomes imprinted with the patterns of the driver's cerebral cortex as it matures from embryo to adult ("the biological equivalent of initializing the hard-drive in a computer.")
Thematically speaking, though, I kind of like it in that it provides yet another incarnation of a very powerful Jake-Neytir theme - the idea that she loves him no matter what body he inhabits, because "spirit is all that matters."
Anyway, I guess this is my last review for this story, so once again: great work, and I look forward to your next writing project. :-)
