I completely forgot to write a review about the last chapter and was going to say somehting about Sammy helping Dr. Harding, but it seems that is obselete now.
I think its very courageous of Sammy to go on the mission, despite not being in the condition to do so. The reply of Senator Gallows makes it even worse, because he knows how ill Sammy is without even telling her so.
It also seems that captain Englund is going to have some real heavy cargo really soon.
I really hope Sammy gets well and her eye gets fixed.
Thank you for writing, and I look forwared to the next chapter!
Don't worry about it, what would the suggestion have been?
Well she has knows that it is something that needs to be done. For Senator Gallows he has to make it seem like nothing is wrong.
That might happen, or it could happen in a lab.
Sammy will eventually get over her cold but her eye is a different story.
Thanks, hopefully you'll enjoy it.

You a telling a super exciting story here, because we care about the characters. I’m still crossing my fingers for Charlie, poor little guy had his visit cut short. That was too bad, but things could have been so much worse. Things are so unfair for him and his hero Sammy.
Maybe Dr Hardy’s research can help them both. If it only helps Sammy and Charlie passes on she might just be overcome by guilt. She might never trust her handlers again.
Speaking of her handlers, what happened to that military guy? Sammy seemed to be really trying to engage with him.
Loving your tale. Thanks for sharing it.
Peace and Happy New Year.
As Sammy knows full well, life isn't always fair. She like many others is dealing with it one day at a time.
That is something that might happen. Although Sammy might not be aware by what is taking place.
He is spending time with his wife and new child. He mght pop up again at some point in the future.
Thanks and happy new year to you as well.

I never got around saying this but I never thought I would enjoy a giantess story without the typical fetishes stuff but you've opened my eyes. Rather than falling in love with a giantess for her assets, I've fallen in love with your giantesses personalities.
Sammy made a nice call taking Charlie. It's tragic that the poor kid is dying. You did give me a scare at the beginning of the first paragraph when you mentioned him sleeping.
I loving your stories a lot to the point I get excited when I see another update of this and The Last Giantess.
Oh, and Happy New Years!
Thanks, it means a lot to me.
Well it was just good that he was alright for now anyway.
Hopefully you won't be disappointed in the future.
Happy New Year to you as well.

I just read the most recent chapter but now I've decided to go back and read the whole thing~ Love the characterization and love Sammy's personality! You have a great story on your hands here, I can already tell from the first few chapters!
Thanks, hopefully you'll enjoy the rest of the story.

Can you maybe explain what the reference about the cartoons from Georgia is about? I am not an American and I don't understand this reference.
It seems that Sammy really could use something positive in the new year.
Also, thank you for writing and I wish you a happy new year!
Actually I was talking about Georgia the country. I just wanted to make a bit of a joke that Zero can get cartoons from any country except for one for some reason.
Yes she does, in her mind it would be a limitlesss supply of beer.

My instinctive reaction is to say “Oh, no.”
You are doing a great job of making care about your characters. It seems shameful if Charlie’s last moments are spent with Zero, who has no emotion to share. But it could just destroy poor Sammy if she’s there or not. She might spend the rest of her life regretting taking a shower and a thoughtless outburst.
All those people she’s saved and all she will see is the one she couldn’t. So sad.
Of course I might be getting ahead of the story. Charlie might be unconscious or comatose. Still, these might be his last memories of his life.
Thanks for creating a super engaging story and have a happy new year.
Indeed it would, at least he would have spent sme time with his heroine.
Unfortunately due to the cancer that he has he doesn't have long to live.
Thanks, happy new year to you too.

Things are getting really heart breaking. It’s hard to imagine a lower low point for Sammy. Charlie has been a beacon to her and a comfort I think. His loss will cost the story a bit I believe, but it will be a tremendous loss to Sammy’s soul.
In some ways Sammy is an odd girl and in some ways she is understandable. I like her contrasts and quirks more and more as I read her tale. I also enjoy how she changes and grows as a person, which is something that must be hard for both her and you as the creator, due to her limited human contact, not to mention the isolating effect of being a giant. Still, you both are finding ways to develop her and making it interesting for your audience.
Well done and thank you for sharing this.
His loss will affect her quite a bit as he truly looked up to her. to him she was a hero, not a monster.
It is somewhat difficult to express her when she is isolated, I'm glad that you are enjoying how I do it and its effects on her.
Peace to you as well.

Obviously you can't tell, but my heart shattered in two...
Our lovely heroine lost her eye... :'(
What even made it more sad was when she asked Zero if she was still pretty and broke down crying. Have I mentioned how I love how Sammy still has a girly side to her and a badass who can kick Kaiju butt?
No you didn't but thanks for letting me know. Just because she's a 350 foot Kaiju killing machine doesn't mean she can't still have some girly moments

"Victory... costs. Everytime you pay a little more." - Prophet
Was a quote I had to think of when I read this chapter.
Really sad to see Sammy hurt so much.
Thank you for writing, and I am looking forward to the next installment (if Sammy gets fixed there ).
Very true words, Sammy has lost a little more over time. A scratch or a scar didn't really bother her too much but an eye is something much more important. Hopefully she can recover to a certain point but she will never be the same again.
Date: December 14 2017 7:13 AM Title: Chapter 14: Deep Sea Mission
Oh wow. That was really a heartfelt ending. Sammy has grown so much as a character and this feels like a horrible set back for her. I want to make a joke about her getting her beer, but it just feels cruel.
The ending also brings the limitations of Zero as a companion into sharp focus. The interesting thing is, rather than seek a higher quality of companion (a certain reporter comes to mind,) Sammy settles for her AI. I wonder if she’s doing so because her mission was classified or because she thinks she doesn’t deserve anything better. Her self doubts seem to be driving her to lower, darker places lately.
I enjoyed her interacting with the Navy, and the Admiral came off as a well developed character, but I would suggest that they would have deployed some manner of missile or better yet, anti submarine weapon, detonating it underwater to alert Sammy that there was a problem. Just a suggestion.
Also, again I have to bring up the technology of the world. If they have AI and gravity manipulation technology, soft tissue regeneration should be something they are at least developing. Harvesting Sammy’s own stem cells and surgically planting them in her empty eye socket, aided by her own amazing healing abilities, could have a chance of making her whole again. But really all that illustrates is how much I care about her now.
Perhaps she will grow stronger in other ways now. Perhaps she will have people pouring out affection and gratitude to her, like the sailors on those ships she protected. Maybe this situation, weather she heals in the long run or not, will make her see she is cared for and maybe even return those feelings, somehow.
Great story. Great characters. Thank you for keeping at it.
Sometimes a joke can make a dark situation seem better but unfortunately this ins't one of those times.
Well for Zero the A.I is a character who can't be intimidated, will not think any less of her and doesn't see her as a freak in any way.
Yeah I really should have thought of that, hindsight is 20/20. If I had a chance to re-write I'd probably add something like that in.
That might be true but I feel like having a strong A.I. is closer to reality than her re-growing her eye. For gravity manipulation, well that's just my love for DBZ.
That is an idea although right now I don't think Sammy wants to be seen by anyone.
Date: December 09 2017 2:07 AM Title: Chapter 13: Tantrum
The emphasis on Sammy’s cooking makes me think you are hinting at a connection between her disease and the Kaiju meat. I wonder...
Sammy’s king kong moment served to remind the audience of her dangerous qualities without the too disrupting, over dramatic fallout that would have resulted from such a display in public.
Zero knocks out Sammy and she just forgives him and takes responsibility for her actions? Wow, that really makes her relationship with the AI more complex and interesting. It’s actually seeming like good prep for her having more “real” relationships. Nice, angle.
Senator Gallows really surprised me this chapter. He’s using real leadership skills and not just saying “do as you’re told.” He came off as way less of a jerk. I’m actually happy to see him developed as a character.
I was very happy as a reader with this chapter. Great, engaging work. Thank you for sharing this yet again and enjoy your writing efforts.
There might be a connection but the meat is tested before it is consumed.
Well when you're big, have large muscles and have your mind blown by a Kaiju the chances of being calm are very low.
Sammy isn't entirely a monster and she can see where she is at fault. She also knows what would have happened if Zero hadn't of stepped in. She knows that he always has her interestes in mind.
Thanks, he's not an evil person but instead a man who finds himself in a situation that he had never prepared for. There were no classes on how to deal with a giant woman.
Date: December 08 2017 12:24 PM Title: Chapter 1: Pilot
Wow, this guy below me ... reviews. His feedback is so professional!
And now the true intention of taking away Sammy's beer reveals itself: they use it when they want Sammy to do something. Clever.
Also, that is one sturdy doorpost to survive Sammy bumping into it.
Thank you for writing, as always!
Thanks, I appreciate the feedback and the doorpost is strong. It has to carry a lot of weight.

I have been negligent in my reviews...national novel writing month,you know. Sorry.
However, reviewing the last chapters together works for me as it looks like you’ve been examining Sammy from the inside (in the most recent chapter) and from the outside (her relationship with Leslie and with the community at large.)
I have to say this sort of “character symmetry” is the sort of thing that really pulls me in as a reader. You are both developing her and examining her at the same time. It comes off sophisticated and entertaining.
I am really enjoying how elements of the community have lead to her accepting them and have resulted in them accepting her further, a sort of “I misjudged you, you’re not so bad” dynamic is emerging that I find natural and yet sweet.
Though elements of darkness and mistrust (or at least caution) remain, illustrated so well by Leslie’s apprehension.
Dream sequences tend to annoy me as a writing device, but using a hallucination to reveal Sammy’s inner wishes worked so well and carried such emotional impact that I really enjoyed the read. And came away with sympathy for our favorite Kaiju buster.
I am really impressed with the story you are telling. It has complex layers and characters and is what I read for. Thank you so much for sharing this and I hope you keep enjoying telling Sammy’s story
Thanks for the detailed review and I didn't mind the wait, we all have real life things to deal with.
Hopefully the story will continue to keep you invested.
Date: November 29 2017 12:34 PM Title: Chapter 1: Pilot
Ahw, poor Sammy.
I was gonna say something about the difference between standing up for yourself and being a country threatening menace and Sammy simply running for president if they are still not convinced, but I think Sammy is starting to have some other things to tend to first.
Good addition as always, and thank you for writing!
Thank you for your review. She does have a lot on her plate.
Date: November 22 2017 1:11 PM Title: Chapter 1: Pilot
Whoops, seems like I missed last weeks update. Oh well, twice the fun!
And I must agree with the previous reviewers about Sammy's charming personality.
I'm starting to wonder if Sammy should up her agressiveness game to get some more privileges and resources, poor girl still doesn't have that beer
Also nice cliffhanger at the end.
Glad to see you back.
Sammy does have to be careful, if she seems too aggressive the government might see her as a threat. Who knows, maybe she'll have her beer at some point
Date: November 16 2017 11:25 AM Title: Chapter 1: Pilot
I'm torn on this story. To me, it's interesting enough to keep reading, but the lack of significant action keeps me only liking it, instead of loving it.
Can't have action all the time but don't worry here will be plenty more in the future
Date: November 08 2017 5:17 PM Title: Chapter 9: An Unwanted Visitor
There's something charming about Sammy that I love. Maybe it's the fact that you made her so realistic in terms of her personality. The envy she had for Leslie's dress was a nice way show Sammy's feminine side AND her desire to be normal again. Poor girl lost her father and ended up going down a dark road. When she stuck up that old man, I had some mix feelings about her though. We could clearly see Sammy isn't the greatest of individuals but she's far from the worst. You sir or ma'am have a way with character development. ;)
Thanks for the review, I needed to get Sammy with a crime that would get her a long stretch in prison but not something that was completely unforgivable. Thank you for reading and I hope that you enjoy the rest
Date: November 08 2017 10:47 AM Title: Chapter 1: Pilot
Nice insight into Sammy's past and into giantess fans in this chapter.
Also nice to see that not everyone hates Sammy, which hopefully translates in Sammy getting a more warm pesonality towards others.
I also wonder if that Kaiju meat has something to do with Sammy's disease/transformation thingy
Oh, I also have a small request (but you don't have to implement it of course!): could you maybe sometimes add some more details that show that Sammy is really REALLY big?
Sammy seems to be quite intimidating, but sometimes it feels as if it could also be a 6ft Sammy. Examples of what I mean would be things breaking/shaking around in the streets / people blown to the side a bit by breath/unable to keep balance. These details are already present at some places, like when they started cooking food at the science facility when she arrived to make sure there was enough., but maybe adding them more frequently will make the story a bit better.
Thank you for writing! It was a good addition as always.
thanks for the response.
The meat gets tested before she consumes it, they are quite careful
Ok, I'll keep that in mind, thanks for the tip.
Date: November 04 2017 8:51 AM Title: Chapter 8: Cornered
Wow, there is so much going on here. And all these story elements are so cool. Life and death consequences. Multi-layered character interaction. Scheming politicians. And now a medical mystery with scientists against the wall. You really know how to weave a great yarn.
Sammy is still complex and developing as a character. She seems to be softening in some ways but getting more interesting as a person. I didn’t really like the idea of her “hulking out” at first, but when her thoughts of Charlie triggered it, my heart kinda melted. Nice work.
I still think you are missing opportunities to “up’ the drama and suspense with your hyper efficient prose, but the story is so solid and the characters are so good that it’s only a minor distraction.
I love the mosaic of characters and the fantastical situations. All the plots and subplots are forming up nicely. Really, really cool stuff.
Thank you for sharing this and happy national novel writing month.
Thanks for the feedback. It is much appreciated and I do hope that the story stays to your high standards.
Happy National Novel Writing Month to you too.
