How we Found the Giant
« on: November 03, 2017, 01:04:57 AM »

I've been steadily working on a new fan fiction for a while. It's split up into 2 acts - each a fair-sized chunk. Act II is still incomplete, but Act I is finished and is more or less a story on its own, so I thought I'd post it in honor of the festivities the forum has going on. Eventually it becomes about a character that's popped up in one of my other fanfics, but it's not something you need context on. Anyway, here's a teaser. I'll keep adding chapters throughout the month. I hope you like it!



Act 1: How we came about the giant.

Ah, captain Serginal. A man's man in the Redwall world. I already respect him.

He reminds me of a story I was told by a mentor, an ex- army Ranger. Final ranger training, in the Florida Everglades. They had been out there for nearly two weeks, and had lost half their body weight. My mentor had stabbed himself in the leg when he heard they were going back out there, and wanted to call that he had been bitten by a snake, which would take him off the training.
Then he saw another trainee, barely one hundred pounds, trying to lift up a pack that weighed more than him. He fought and fought to roll it over on top of him, then finally was able to stand.
And my mentor was going to be damned if he would quit then. So he taped himself up and went back out.

Man, what a guy! You know, after the second act of this fanfic, which is making quicker progress than this part, I'm going to try branching out and writing my own original set of stories. A story like your mentor's could be a really cool thing to include as a snippet. Would you mind if I borrowed it?

Also, you aren't military, are you? I've seen your youtube channel - I didn't think you were old enough but I could always be wrong

I'm twenty. But no, I'm not military.

Go ahead!
The point of the story he told was that the mind breaks far before the body does. You can push your body far beyond what you think it is capable of.

Gotcha, well thanks! That's a good point. Can't say I've been in a situation like that before (unless you count finals week at school... *shudders*)
