What swiggle lines?
Say if i wrote Yumi

Word would NOT recognize that as an official word, so it puts it down as a spelling error
any recent version of Word would also underline a red swirly line underneath Yumi

Hehehe, sorry about the long time without updates, a new chapterr will be posted soon since I was busy on the weekends.

Also, I was talking with my friend who wants to use my storyline to create a japenese comic, known as a manga, for his art summative in his school.
He is making the manga as we speak, and may be posting them on this thread, kinda cool eh?

Anyways, chapter 5 and 6 coming up after my other friend finishes beta-reading them, then maybe chapter 1 in an adapted manga version will be coming out too.
Oh, as a side note, in the manga, the storyline might be slightly altered and chapters might be merged together in the manga thingy

lol, awesome! another person who likes my story
chapters 5 and 6 will be up soon once my friend finishes beta-reading and some proofreading of it.

I was stuck finding a name for Hybrid initially, but his... personaility, 'his traits' and more were a mix of things so Hybrid turned out to be a great name. [Since Hybrid means Combination or Crossbreed...]

I decided to give your story another shot, because some of your ideas are very creative and really hook me in; however, the second chapter is a little too hard to read with all the caps and comma splice errors and what not. I would really like to check this story after a few changes are applied, but it's sort of repulsive to read (not in a really bad way, it's just that so many capital letters weirds me out or somethin'). You can easily acknowledge the emotion and volume of your character's voice by using adjectives. In fact, you can actually convey far more emotion with adjectives than with capital letters, as capital letters simply denote volume.
For example: ("WHAT DO YOU MEAN?" the girl asked loudly. {In my opinion, "What do you mean?" she asked suspiciously, her accusatory tone unmistakable. This way, you know that she still doesn't trust Hybrid right then, and you can tell that she's not just bluntly shouting out words, but she's actually directing her ire toward him.} Now, that's just an example, but I'm sure you get the idea.)
I'd also like to suggest brushing up on your grammar. Many of your sentences have comma splice errors, which is basically when you seperate two independent clauses with a comma and no conjunction or anything. It's certainly readable like this, but it's incorrect and looks much better otherwise.
And the flashback thing really got me. Sure, that would work fine in an anime or something, but in a story you don't just say, "FLASHBACK" and then roll with it. And honestly, a flashback like that detracts from the story. A flashback should only be there to advance the storyline or character development, not to relay the exact same information that you read last chapter. Sorry, but this part bothered me.

But I just now finished chapter 2, and I'm starting to dig it. I'm not so sure you should use Tirisfal, at least not if it's spelled the same as it is in Warcrack, but I'll probably read the next few chapters within a day or two. Keep it real, brotha, and never stop writing.

War...crack? Lol, Tirisfal is a village in my RPG game that I was making, so is Heltheon and Zenith. Never heard of Warcrack.

You know, after MY FRIEND FINISHES READING THE NEXT TWO CHAPTERS!!! [YOU HEAR THAT!] and comments about what I should fix, instead of wrting another chapter, ill tone down the Caps and then do what you did, which seemed... much better lol.

Oh, my friend and I drew Yumi, but the scanner won't pick up pencil marks, gotta ink it with something.... brb...
