ALIEN: The Silent Dark 'The Resolution Of Walter'

This was inspired by a short story here done by a member who examined how Walter would handle being left behind.

This is the story that inspired my work above, and if not for this work, my story wouldn't exist.

Walter's Lonely Exile (A Fan Fiction) by Vivisected Engineer

33 Years....Really anxious to find out what happened to David and the Covenant.

So cool having Walter back!

Thank-you for reading!! Thank-you also for letting me know you enjoyed it!!! :)

I like Walter, and when Vivisected Engineer did their story, I just had to run with it. He just deserves better than to be discarded forever.
And as I had previously planned to have Manticore follow David and Shaw anyways, it just all fit together so well. :D

ALIEN: Manticore 'Paradise' is what this short-story directly ties into, so Walter WILL be getting a fair amount more 'screen time' this go-around, and I've been working on that today as well as ALIEN: Manticore so that when A:M is done, I can just keep rolling along with a good start on A:M 'Paradise' without changing gears.

Folks have been really Patient in waiting while I work on this ALIEN: Manticore beast, and I don't want to keep people waiting any longer than I must.

As for David and Covenant, I do have plans regarding them, but there's many avenues to consider still, I do plan to address those points when I find the best choice in how to do so.

Blackwinter-witch Nice nod to "Lost In Space". I noticed how neatly you tied things up between your narrative and Ridley Scott's. It looks like Manticore got its own "Data" :-)

Blackwinter-witch BTW, let us know what you thought about Alien Covenant!

I HAVEN'T READ YOUR STORY YET because I really have to get to bed, but I'm replying so that I can find it later and I am so excited to read it!!! I know I'm going to love it!

Also, thanks for plugging my story! :D :D :D

Without your story, mine never would have had the necessary and crucial 'starter'. :) You're very welcome, of course!!

But part of the credit for my story does rightfully belong to you, as your work directly inspired it, after all.


TY for reading and letting me know you enjoyed it!! :D

Walter, that character just needed to be saved from oblivion, and if not for VivisectedEngineer this story most likely never would have happened.
So a good share of credit for the essential 'Starter' is due them. :)

Manticore's Engineer, yeah, when I came up with the character, the voice of Lacey Chabert circa Lost In Space movie just 'fit' the character PERFECTLY. Glad you liked the 'nod', Walter allowed me to plausibly give the audience a solid connection to how I hear Sharie's voice. :)

Yeah, Walter is aboard Manticore to stay, as long as he chooses. I really thought it'd be harder to integrate him in, but it really caught me off-guard how easily that went. :)
Suffice to say, this short story is set towards the start of ALIEN: Manticore 'Paradise', and Walter will be around from that point on. :)

ALIEN: Covenant, my take on it.
3.5 out of 5 stars. Quite Good, not Great. I will NOT forgive the glaring edit-slip when the facehugger attacks Lope towards the end of the movie. That really bugs me.

Overall, I enjoyed it as it serves as a nice 'gateway' piece to more stories across that universe.
EG: Say Covenant becomes a ghost ship, some future salvage crew happens on it, finds the facehugger embryos and some science guy decides to put one in a support-growth tank to see what it is at maturity...OOPS. :D

I liked the visuals, I liked the tech, I liked the casting and it was a treat to see McBride take on a serious role...but I REALLY wish they'd kept James Franco around and involved more.
I DO have a problem with Space Idiocy as we saw mr. throatburster do his own version of 'Pulling A Holloway' by having his face less than a foot from some UNKNOWN pods and poking them, then just staying there with the spore cloud in his face...folks don't even do that with plants/pods/things in nature here on Earth for fear of getting a lung infection or allergic reaction.
However, well,I can roll with it.
I LIKED how Ledward was infected, that was just 'Life's Cruel' and I liked how the spores are Mobile and Seeking.

Blackwinter-witch Thanks for sharing our opinion on Alien Covenant :-)


MemberPraetorianSep-11-2017 12:19 AM


YW. :)
I rewatched it a lot, as after watching it, I went back through it, Studying it, taking notes of where bodies where left, how many eggpods remained behind and viable, the scrape marks on the dome building's roof, etc, etc.
As when I do ALIEN: Manticore 'Paradise' I want the details as correct as possible. :D
