wow DD the time & effort you put in is awesome!
The creativity you show blows my mind!
Alas for me the story was waaaay to long for me to get my head around at first, second & 3rd reads . . I missed the Vong stuff so some of it doesn't make sense - those with the backstory in their head must love this continuation times ten but I am a little rusty.
I thought you were breaking the story into chapters?
Anyway I am in awe of you hard work DD YOU INSPIRE US ALL!!
