This is an little side project of mine. It's something I dig up when I have absolutely nothing else to do and have already written the daily quota for my main work. So..don't expect to see new chapters often, but they'll be coming eventually and the story will be finished.

I believe a lot of the story will come down to character interaction and I hope I've managed to pull it off to start things off. I'd be happy to hear any thoughts you'd have on that.

All other comment are also welcome as usual.

This is fascinating. I love the mystery and the air of futuristic dystopia that you've pulled together.

This is very well written! It's very detailed and as a reader I can absolutely see the steady relationship building between Hermes and Travis. I also love how you slowly reveal each character's characteristic because it makes the story a worthwhile read and brings different perspectives to your story~! A well deserved DD and keep up the awesome work!

No. What would be the point in that? You'd lose just about every reason for why it got a DD.

Would you ask visual artists to drop their work to monochrome so it's less overwhelming, too? :B

well, no, but it IS a bit long for a devitation, and it didn't load properly for me

It's only twelve pages in large font, double spaced.

As to the loading, I'd try downloading it.

This really is worthy of the DD, congratulations.

You manage to create an intriguing and enticing world within just a few pages and I can't help but be pulled in. Post Apocalyptic fiction isn't something that I have ever experimented with personally. Though it does always capture my imagination when I read it. Even though you have stated that you won't be posting more to this story often...I will be watching for the next installment.

Your characters are strong and well formed, this is evident from even a brief encounter...and you have given both main players enough of a shadowed past to make them instantly fascinating and fun to read. Already I can see the world from which Hermes may have come and the dark realm in to which Travis was born....

Truly great, great work!

Thank you for the kind words. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the first chapter.

There's a link in the artist comment to the second chapter and to the full gallery with the entire story. Yes, it's complete, though I must warn you the latter chapters might not be as polished as the earlier ones. Haven't had the time to go through them as many times with the added knowledge I've gained since posting them Sweating a little...

Thank you for suggesting the link too. I have to admit, I'm excited to see the rest and find out what's going on. I'm sure the latter chapters will read just as well. I'll try to read them all over the next few days and let you know what I think. Keep up the good work :)

Now this looks interesting. I'm curious to learn what happened to the world, and what Hermes's mission is. I somewhat suspect his name has some foreshadowing in it, but I guess I'll just have to wait and learn. I also like the slight "stranger in a strange land" theme going on. Even if it isn't full-fledged, the bare-bone concept is prevalent. The writing is also captivating, I read it while eating lunch and I didn't have a problem with keeping my attention on whatever page I was on even through the screaming of everyone else. Can't wait to read more.

Glad to hear it kept your attention even under such circumstances.

It might be a while until the next chapter, though I've been pretty into the whole concept myself and have ended up writing quite a bit more per day than usual. If things go well it might not be more than a week or two :)

Personally I always like stories that have more emphasis on character interaction, and it's an interesting world you've come up with, it'll be great to see more of these characters and find out who target 2 is :XD:

They're the best sort of story because you get a real feel for character, and they make it a lot more believable in a human sort of way
