One of my friends is interested in weapons and munitions and things along those lines. He pointed something out to me about Avatar, so I decided to write this fic. It's only one vignette, and I probably won't expand it, so there's only one thread for now.
Tough there's a couple of things I noticed between writing it (a few weeks back) and now:
- I think I've got Quaritch's speech in the wrong time/place. Oops, put it down to artistic license?
- One exchange that possibly should be translated isn't, and unfortunately I can't remember why that is. Oops again.
Anyway, it's attached to the bottom of this post. (Though: Minor language warning
) If you're really curious about what my friend said to me, open the MAJOR SPOILER:
He told me the lethal radius of the daisy cutter shell: 300m/900 yards. Basically large enough to kill everyone in and around Hometree in a single, loud BANG.
I'm probably not going to keep writing this because I can't see how to stop Quaritch winning, and that's too depressing to write. :'( (Note to self: Realism does not make for a good story.)
