    A little shameless self-promotion. So I wrote a fan fiction a couple years about the Midwest Enclave, called The Dixie Wasteland. It follows the story of an Enclave soldier named Miles Barfoot who is sent to the Southeastern Commonwealth to help the Enclave liberate the Georgia-Alabama region, with the help of a local militia. The Enclave's efforts are hindered by a powerful Neo-Nazi fascist power led by a tyrannous dictator.
    Here's the prologue: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10289698/1/The-Dixie-Wasteland
    Any writing infrequencies you can blame on the fact that I wrote it back in high school. It's not finished, but in the meantime, if you guys like it or hate it, let me know. Any feedback I get will help me out. Thanks!

    I think the premise is interesting, but I have a couple of nitpicks if you'll humor me:

    I think the whole "War. War never changes" prologue bit is a little redundant, since I'm sure most people that will read this stuff would know the general background story.

    If you intend to keep that bit, however, I feel like the line about slavers could be either redacted or downsized and merged into the sentence just before that.

    The second person PoV in the last paragraph sounds a bit game-y to me, but if that's what you were going for, then awesome!

    Best of luck in your writing.

    Im writer, but I dont feel myself qualified to properly criticize english texts. But I also think that the second paragraph doesnt fits the rest of the text point of view. Keep working, practice helps to improve.
