Grapple X, I'm very happy and inspired to see your work here. I do have some insights based on the above checklist that I think will improve the article:

  • I think the layout needs to be fixed.

Besides that, I think the article looks excellent. All the best, SFriendly.svg --Seabuckthorn  23:11, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the quick review! Which paragraphs do you feel should be rearranged? I've tried to keep separate subjects separated, especially major scene changes in the plot section, but I could probably merge some of them together. GRAPPLE X 00:27, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

Done and done. Thanks for the review! GRAPPLE X 23:02, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
