So I took in what Sorts said about a virus that turns hair into bone, and decided to extend the concept a bit further. I basically gutted the entire article, reworked it, and reread a lot of the guides, paying particular attention to the "Rule of Thumb" guide.
Also took into account what was said about the drawn-out speech to quite some degree. Although I am sure there are still signs of it in my writing; say thanks to public school's and their AP English courses.
If you have a sec, pop in, reread, and give me some feedback. Still thick skinned here, so unload on it, keeping in mind I still plan on fleshing out more information. Not shooting for perfect, just postable enough that it won't get baleeted.
