Every week we’ve been posting chapters of ‘The Question Mark’, a fan fiction based on events that could have happened if the end of MGS4 were slightly different. The story is becoming extremely tense and exciting, with a mix between LOST and Spooks in terms of mystery and drama. We’re twenty one weeks and twenty one chapters through, and you may be feeling a little lost, or on edge whether to start reading so far in. Well fear not. We’ve compiled every single chapter into one line each for you to get a quick catchup before the next chapter hits this Sunday. Awesome.
Disclaimer: If you haven’t played the Metal Gear series, there will be spoilers in this story. This catchup contains massive spoilers to the story of ‘The Question Mark’ between chapters one and twenty one.
