Not being above a little shameless promotion myself, Mainevent, I decided to take your advice and read your FF.

Nice story. Lots of run-on sentences. Lots and lots actually. It was kind of like:

run-on sentence
double run-on sentence!
triple run-on sentence!
run-on sentence-tacular!

But hey, Earnest Hemingway once wrote a sentence that went on for two pages so who am I to criticize?

I was wondering if the narrator shouldn't have more trouble describing 343's sensations in emotional terms. For example, would 343 "feel" any way. Emotion sub-routines are only substitutes for the real thing. Would he ever have an intimation what it was like to be tugged by the hand of a child. These are evocative images, but I think your story would be better served if the narrator found more...robotic ways to describe the new things that 343 was "feeling".

Keep up the good work.

I wish this thing would just take Word code ;).

And I wanted 343 to show a true emotion here, but one that was computer operated and not human.

good story, good details and understanding of how 343 feels

I knew when writing Genesis that I wanted them to tie in, but I wasn't sure how. Then I was thinking about it the other night and it hit me.
And now we are where we are. All in all I believe it came together nicely.

I usually do. But I did this in Word late at night, and didn't feel like it in this story.

This may be a little nit-picky to some, but please [i]italicize[/i] the names of ships. Please.

Otherwise, good story.
