Considering what has been going on as of late, I have a feeling that this particular fanfic could be controversial.


As always, please read and review. I'm desperate to know how well I've done.

I've only read through the first chapter, but I can honestly say that is quite different from the other Godzilla Fan Fic that is out there. Where most are focused on the actions of the kaiju and their movements and doings, you focus heavily on the military and their strategies, which gives us A LOT more character in-depth.

Though, I don't like when you have change from one scene to the other that you annouce the location as to where it is taking place. I feel that it is best that the reader learns within the details as to where it takes place, then to just announce it.


Hopefully, I will be able to read a little more soon.

With the recent reports on Korea, do you think that I should cancel this story since Asia (pretty much the main battle zone throughout the Godzilla series) could have a good chance of lighting up again with nukes.


Well what do you think.

If anyone is interested, I posted a preview of chapter 5.


Other than that, I hope that you all review here please, since I'm kinda itching (okay very much itching) for reviews from all my peers.

I can't say that the character interaction, particularly among the cardboard cutout Middle East figures, is anything other than stilted. The action paragraphs are just as bad. It's jarring to the reader when adjectives and adverbs are repeated within a paragraph.
In describing military engagements, less is generally more. Don't make up details about which you're unfamiliar. Example: if a tank battalion wants to raze a district in Baghdad, there's literally nothing at all "the insurgents" can do about it. Newspapers and shows are incredibly lousy inspirations for combat writing.

I had a feeling that the character interaction would come back to bite me. Any ideas on improvements for the characters then.


Now about the combat scenes, you may have done me a huge favor since now I have some hard thinking to do and fortunately I will not be resuming this fanfic for some time (mainly just to catch my breath and do some other things). Any examples and any ideas on where to look.


Thank you for reviewing anyway.

As an example of characterization, consider

Calhoun then added in an attempt to finish the discussion, “I’m afraid we can’t spend anymore time on this since it seems to be a false alarm on the part of you twoâ€
