Title: Judgement Calls Author: Stephensmat Fandom: Terminator Rating: T Category: Adventure/Romance Chapters: 25 Words: 410,179 Updated: March 17, 2012 Published: January 12, 2008 Status: Complete Summary: John Connor was aware the War was coming his whole life. Kate Brewster was not. This is their story, and the story of the war to retake the Earth. PostT3. AU From Terminator Salvation. Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4006891/1/Judgment-Calls Judgement Calls is in basic terms the story about the War against the Machines that we always heard about in the first three movies, but never fully saw(although Terminator Salvation did attempt this). But it also tells the story of how John Connor and Katherine Brewster create the Resistance, how John reacts to meeting Kyle Reese(the man who would become his father), and how SkyNet relentlessly tried to snuff out humanity. It's also one of the best wriiten Terminator stories out there. However you have to take in mind that this story does indeed follow Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, which by many fans of the franchise was heavily disliked. Thankfully the story itself has none of the problems the movie had. The story itself goes over a period of twenty years from Judgement Day to the end of the War. Throughout that period we see John Connor rise from a nobody to a legend, becoming the last hope for humanity. I think one of the best things about this story however is the ending and climax. It's indeed a great ending, which I won't spoil, but I suggest reading. The story is very dark however, and does deal heavily with death and despair. The fic has a few misspellings, but not that many. Other than that I highly recommend this fic, and I personally give it a 5/5.
