Reviews for Ariel's Haven
Hawki chapter 1 . 7/4/2013
The fic is…”okay.” There’s some alternation of past and present tense at the start, the writing feels overly formal at times, and the first few paragraphs are basically an info-dump. However, it’s hardly in the area of “bad” writing, and as I’m guessing English isn’t your first language (going by your country of origin), I don’t want to harp on it too much.

Concerning the concept itself though…the fic presents itself as a third option, but basically, you’re going down the route of ‘Haven’s Fall’ anyway, that the Raiders will handle it. The only differences are that Selendis affirms that they’ll pick up the slack if the Raiders fail, and Hanson doesn’t storm off. It’s arguably a more realistic version of ‘Haven’s Fall’ (in that if one chooses ‘Safe Haven’, there’s no zerg to be fought for some reason), but it doesn’t feel distinct on its own.

Still, at the end of the day, still decent.

And the solution was both solutions.
Exactly what did they do? What they did before?

Personally I don't think Selendis would have done that at that moment. The Protoss may not care too much on what happens with terrans, but they DO pay attention to them when it comes to Zerg infestation.

And almost every time something like that happens and the terrans say they'll handle it their own way, it usually fails. And by the time they realized their method didn't work, it's already too late to matter and everyone's either dead or infested.

Selendis knows Raynor is a well respected ally and would do the right thing, but even he's smart enough to know infestation happens very quickly. Most of the time, it's too late to matter before you even figure out what's going on. I'm just not sure Selendis would actually have given Raynor that time...

hmm real hard to do a background of a select mission cos it mainly falls into one or the other, i think this one is leaning more towards havens fall, none the less i enjoyed it
