Reviews for Detachment
Abyssal Angel chapter 1 . 2/8/2020
Wow. Palpatine the nihilist Jedi. Dang...

Convince them to care about nothing, and when momentary amusement is all they seek, why are you surprised? Palpatine is far less a threat as an overt evil, as the prequel and main trilogy prove quite efficiently.

With total detachment, life becomes a zero-sum game.

He solved for zero.

Balancing the Force. Idiots.

Nice job on pointing at the flaws of 'no attachments' philosophy.

Very nice. It didn't even register to me while I was reading that the protagonist was Palpatine. I realised it when I was reading to check if this fic had an appropiate number of reviews (and it does not, but let's give it time). When you think about it, the galaxy is kinda better of with Palpatine as a sith :D

Yes, I can see Palpatine as being very like this.

Rightly or wrongly, the Jedi are no good guys. An amoral and detached person would fit very well in such an enviroment.

Did you ever see an Anime called Noein? Noein has a great hatred of suffering so he creates an utopia where there is no attachment or individuality. Are we suprised he is an antagonist to flawed but pitifully human heroes?

But he is no villain. he has gone beyond notions of good or evil.

And the look on his face when he removes his mask...Insane enlightenment. I suspect the Netherworld of the Force might be like this. (And we notice there are Sith there too...not just Jedi)

Palpatine, of course, has to destroy the Jedi...Before they destroy him. He has no choice.

Good work! This is a very interesting take on pushing the no attachments ideology to an extreme and excellently written. Very dark, but plausibly so. I really liked the ending.
