Not really my cup of tea, but as I have come to expect from this author, a very well written story indeed.

Thank you.  I felt this one needed to have a different tone than the first, and be more about the man than the machine, kind of show how they fit together.  I have the next part roughly sketched out, but I'm working on a project of my own that's taking all of my writing time, so it's going to have to wait a little while.

Marauder was one of my very favorite Battlecorps stories, and the sequel is just as good. Looking forward to part three.

To be honest, it was not necessarily the story I liked.
But nevertheless, it's well written (as 'Marauder').

Good story, Jal - and a good sequel to Marauder. It was a good choice to change the focus from the Marauder to the pilot. Now that the stories of machine and man has been told, I'm curious to see if you share my feeling about what a sequel should focus on...

The best part, imho, was murdering the guy and hiding the corpse where he hid it. That was creepy and unsettling!

A little Cask of Amontillado never hurt anyone.   ^-^

PM me if you have some ideas.  Right now I know the basic plot points of the next part, but haven't written anything in stone yet.  Or electrons.

Just read through the story.
Little Napoleon set the tone of the story for me and it was all up from there.
Very well done.
I wish I could get a good grip on reality, then I would choke it.

A really good follow-up to Marauder!  It gave me a creepy Jack Nicholson in "The Shining" sort of vibe.  That slow, inevitable descent into madness and eventual self-destruction.  Good Times. . .
