Very good...this is something we don't always get to see, except in written stories most of the time: the aftermath of the battle, and how that must weigh on the commanders involved. No matter how important your cause is, it still hurts.
It does hurt, I'm certain of it. I take a really eye-level view of the characters in Trek. If you end up reading the Arc of the Wolf, you'll see what I mean. I love a good battle scene, but really am not so good at writing them; love action and adventure, but still struggle with it. So, most everything I write, even with battles and adventure, tends to be character-driven above all.
Thanks so much for the comment!
Amen to that.
Very nice work on this SLWatson
. Brief, yet very poignant.
Thank you. I wasn't too sure of this one, and still am not perfectly thrilled with it, but if it hit a chord then I've done my job.
