Admittedly I'm not usually down for the screamo stuff either, but this one's more screamo lite

Main vocals are pretty smooth actually, so they balance each other out.

Of course not! 8) I got this far, why stop now? :sure:

Truthfully my lazy cycle is in effect, but it shouldn't be too hard break out of it. It's on my mind though, so mostly I'm writing it in my head at the moment. Still gotta get those PM's out too.

Closing thoughts: Your writing is coming out a little more fluid now. I think the use of simple sentences helps you show instead of tell. Kinda like cutting out the fight worked in your favor.

Just gonna point out: "Didn’t Coryn dropped the ‘Sken’ in his name?”--there's no need for the -ed conjugation since the sentence is a question type.

I assume that I am to be one of the ones in this lovely little pyramid scheme of yours? (It's not always super suspish to use the word scheme...) I do enjoy knowing how to not get myself killed.

You're right. Sometimes it's just regular 'suspish'.

Thanks Mahlua. Admittedly, I've always wanted to write super fancy, extremely detailed and intelligent sounding sentences. Raplh Ellison and his book "Invisible Man" was the inspiration behind that goal because the descriptive writing skills he displayed in that book really stuck with me. But naturally over time I realized that a much more simple and straight to the point kind of style was something I was much better at, and decided that it would be best to cultivate that skill tree instead.

And silly Mahlua, I already got you written down as assistant coach of the fighters division in my notes. However, I've held off on the idea as I was unsure if you were returning to the forum or not. But now that you're here we can get the ball rolling. All that's left is the paperwork. *Slams a mountain of paperwork on Mahlua's desk*

Besides, there's not much I can teach a raider who went toe to toe with a tan and lived to tell the story. Still gotta check that off on my bucket list.

As always, assistants are left with the paperwork. :glare:

Welp, I'm looking forward to the job anyway.

So after a couple of weeks I've finally managed to hear from all the raiders I reached out to and asked to participate in joining the fighters division. I am happy to say that the Fighters Division (And MRverse in general) will be seeing some interesting additions to its ranks. All of these raiders will make an appearance in the last chapter, so look forward to that.

I'm giving myself a two week deadline to finish this thing, with the bulk of the writing probably being worked on today.

Go for it, man. I know not everyone is like me and can pump out eleven chapters with about or more than 1.5k words each in a month but GOOOOO.
