| BrightNova169 chapter 2 . 6/9
I'm kind of surprised that Drek knew that Ratchet was a Lombax. Surprised that he knew about Lombaxes since they were banished to another dimension ago and not surprised since he likely has lots of connections.
Orvus getting involved with Clank's birth was a nice way to clarify how he became a defect. And of course, Drek making sure no more defects were produced. But sometimes, one defect is all it takes to bring down a major operation...
I don't mind the in-game Helpdesk since it can provide a refresher about gameplay controls or tips. There have been more annoying tip-givers in video games.
I also liked how Ratchet named his first ship. Since Ratchet seems really desperate to leave Veldin and how much he despises his home's inhabitants, Ribbon is likely his only hope for adventure and sanity. It makes Ratchet's efforts to leave seem more significant.
I didn't mind the contents of fictional scientific components. This game involves science fiction. Your story, your rules.

This was an interesting reimagining of Ratchet and Clank's backstories. I could imagine a lombax, or any other species, would become more than a little depressed or emotionally unstable if they grew up without knowing the feeling of being loved or having a supportive environment.
I also liked the mention of Orvus and Siegfried. They appear to have a very strong friendship despite very different backgrounds and are able to confide in each other.
I agree that the doctor's name seems pretty unimportant especially if she's not going to be a recurring character for the story.
As for criticisms, I'm not sure if I have any. I'm pretty green at this stuff. I don't really know what headcannons are so I can't really tell how you failed.
To me, silence - without any sound anywhere - sounds like a sort of high-pitched alarm-like noise. Like a held note, sort of like dragging a sharp object across a metal surface (i.e. a nail on an iron sheet) and it doesn't sound nice.
Anyways, nice chapter. I'll keep checking this out.

I can safely say that I enjoyed this more than the Reimagining, if for no other reason than you actually took the time to SHOW Ratchet and Clank's developing relationship and give them both character envelopment, something the new game neglected to do.
I'm really looking forward to the sequel and can't wait... hold on...
*Looks at when this was completed*
*Checks your profile to see when was the last time you posted a story*
Well, I hope you find the time to start writing again soon.

FINALLY! A GUN!

So... is Ratchet EVER going to get a gun or what?

Silence? I have never found silence. Even if I could go out alone, into the cold depths of the infinite void and vacuum, and yet not meet a horrible demise, I would still have not found silence. How can I, when what acts as a little voice inside most people's heads is all too real for me? We have learned to co-operate, but they're always talking, whispering...
And in the night, they scream.
But then he comes, that voice in the dark, clear and loud, pushing the rest of them out of the way. I think...
I think I love him.
But is this possible? What are the effects of falling in love with a figment of one's imagination? No. I will not think about that.
While we must take turns controlling this vessel which houses our collective conscience, we can still interact with each other. He is bookish, shy, worrisome, the complete opposite of me. When Vhuj'ghjk-abysll, Mr. Smiles, Happy Billy and the rest become too much, I help him through.
He's cute when flustered and embarrassed, too, although I have to look in the mirror to see him properly. I know that he can see me write this, and he will finally know my feelings about him.
The other voices can go to hell for all I care. I'm happy with just him.

Well, Lombax related headcannon? ...Hmm, i think the fact that they are extinct, and that they use English. Because why not.

Well, me and my friends mostly play Team Fortress 2, but when they come around my house, we play a bit of R&C All 4 One, R&C 3, and R&C Full Frontal Assault. Or Q-Force.

I would do nothing for a Klondike bar. I'd rather have a Toffifee. Or a Milka bar.
