Reviews for Another Matter for Lawyers
guestinator chapter 3 . 3/19
So clear abuseof the system which goes with reality when nothing happens because of it to show what they tried to do is wrong?

Yay on depressing story I suppose? Bleh.

Honestly, I just can't like this chapter.

Yes, Tony is an absolute asshole. But it's ridiculous, and victim-blaming, to assert that he chose to castrate himself of his own free will.
Cereburn chapter 3 . 11/6/2021
I very much hated, as was intended by the authors, how Paige was treated in stories that expanded on Paige's conviction and imprisonment(I've not read the canon). I really liked this version of events.
Thank you for writing it.
Caver Floyd chapter 3 . 10/10/2021
Good story.
Dedischado chapter 3 . 5/25/2021
I have very much enjoyed this pair of stories and would like to see more if possible.

You aren’t a lawyer are you?

Did you seriously work in an Honor Harrington reference?

Awesome.

Good story. Interesting rendition of how lawyers can help out as the canary case.
Yogiri chapter 3 . 3/9/2021
Very well written. Due to a psychological disorder, I am finding it extremely difficult to appreciate a lot of stories. Even so, this is one of the stories I do appreciate.
The terminologies used, the arguments used, the logic used, the premise and plot - they couldn't have been better.

I usually write a review to criticize a story. This is one of the very few times I am praising one.

I just love these kinds of fics, and yours in particular are written incredibly well!

A western there is no system someone builds one, an eastern there is a crooked cop and/or other corruption but the system is reformed from the inside, a northern the system works perfectly, a southern the system is rotten to the core and has to be burned to the ground from the outside often from an outsider

It's an important term, 'Moral Courage'.
To some it means 'Willingness to sacrifice people.'
To others it means 'Willingness to stick to a code when it's obviously a bad idea.'
But 'To understand what you are doing goes against your religion, your creed or your duty. But to do it anyway because it Needs to be done for humanity.'

Morality is the knowing of good and evil.

Do not speak to me of moral duty, for I have taken up a burden greater then your own.

Courage is to experience fear, and overcome it.

Moral Courage, then is to see that something, while needed, is a terrible evil, but to overcome that fear. The quality of understanding what you are about to do is monstrous, to realize the horror that it is and be repulsed by that. To know that it will wrack you with guilt for the rest of your life, that you will some day have to account for what you are about to do, and to go through with it still.

Moral Courage is to do what needs to be done, without ever becoming callus to the things you are doing.

Because it is when you stop feeling guilt for failing in your duties that you become lax.

So when I consign millions to death, I do so not with a clear heart, but wracked by tears and guilt.
But I still consign those millions to death so that trillions may live.

WRT your second question, WoG is that her power is severely disrupted by any level of technological interference, even something as simple as singing into a microphone and having it come out a speaker. So the only reason her power took effect on her boyfriend was because she spoke to him in person while it was still spun up. Still not sure if that adds up, but there's at least a handwave for it.

Corrupt and incompetent authorities who screwed it all up

The shards screw with peoples heads and seek out conflict

On top of trauma the shards give you want you think you want in the worst possible way

Choose the worst of us at our lowest

So there is no using tinker tech to improve society medically or arcology building and farming and the environment because they are there to make things worse

Maybe all powers like that

Clever assassination or attrition

Conflict is apparently more interesting to read about for most people than post bio/cyber solar punk post scarcity still I want to read about it

Everyone should have Symbioid duplicate a dozen like thoughtforms

Some think if it goes on like this it's not going to be any different than if aliens conquered/enslavevd humanity we'd be bred to be like dogs who genetically worship our masters as work/herd/guard/attack/lap/etc dogs

Survive-flight/eat/fight/mate THIS is who we are at our core we can't control our nature but we can control our actions

Sythdroid hench dies becomes two (max one thousand for balance) becomes fire team, squads, and sections, companies, platoons, and regiments, they cover entire continents entire worlds, behind them roar and howl the engines of battle tanks war machines so massive they crush mountains to dust beneath their treads, ships and attack craft blot out the sun

Some will root for the underdog no matter what heroes don't punch down

Amy far more good as part time research assistant than first responder

Vicky more good as construction worker for habitat for humanity than superhero

Canned hunt rich kids pretending to be great white hunter

Some can only validate their own existence by grinding someone else beneath their heel

Some can only see the fight in front of them

Winning a duel is not winning a battle is not winning a war is not winning peace

There is always someone better fighting like a weakling is just common sense

Luddites always lose

See the enemy you should respect not the enemy you despise hating them doesn't make them weaker or less intelligent neither blind self to the flaws of those you love

No fight is ever truly fair the opponent of one or an army will have better arms or armor, training or experience, tactics or strategies, or skill and talent, more comrades, or just luck

There is a fine line between courage and stupidity if a stupid plan works it doesn't make it any less stupid you just got lucky, there is always someone stronger/smarter/faster/sneakier and so on so learning to fight like a weakling is simply common sense

Duty is to the people if it was just a constant duels deciding everything

Just because they aren't a threat to the heroes doesn't mean they can't destroy civilization or lessen the quality of life of the common people

Scientific facts are true and denying them for corporate greed only gets people killed

Corporations being allowed to run every industry and infiltrate every facet of life is a recipe for disaster — especially when it comes to public safety — and they should always be made to know their limits. At the same time, corporations exist for a reason and are made up of people, not cartoon villains (even if the people at top can be greedy jerks) and "tearing down the system" instead of fixing it will lead to just as much death and horror as letting them run rampant.

More upset won't kill them

Corrupt and/or incompetent democracy ideal autocracy

Do we do away with fire because of arson

Steal or starve, kill or be killed, when the devil is the only one offering you hand up you take it

"Everyone is a criminal, we bribe people every day to not commit crimes. Little offers of things like security and comfort in exchange for not simply taking what is wanted. We write arbitrary rules that define criminal and not criminal activities and then we withhold the generous bounty of society from those that do not conform to the rules we have written Heros, villains, rogues, these are labels we apply out of some adolescent desire to make the world black and white. this is the real world, street level drug dealers are desperately peddling drugs to feed their own addictions, women are forced into prostitution to feed their families, kids join gangs to get enough money to help their parents. The conventions of good and evil, us and them, are the simple bigoted stereotypes of an older age. If you want to solve the problem you have to remove your blinders and actually see what's going on here. A few kids have crashed into an upscale party and held up a bank while wearing little more than Halloween masks. Sure the kids have prior felonies, and sure they are armed with extra-normal abilities, but if we treat them like supervillains then that is exactly what they will become. We are the ones that define these people. If we stick the wrong label on them then ten years from now, when they aren't half our size we will be facing hardened criminals with body counts. The system does not work. I have seen the statistics. Outside of lifetime sentences in the Birdcage the recidivism rate on criminal behavior is almost eighty percent. "
Difdi chapter 1 . 9/16/2020
If Canary had given me the order she gave her ex, she’d have sent me off in search of a, ahem, adult toy to do the job - because mine would not reach. The only reason her ex mutilated himself is because he was such an egotist that he considered only one, ahem, implement, worthy of the job.

That’s another aspect to possibly raise at her trial - she may be able to give people orders, but they decide how to carry out those orders, unless she explicitly tells them to do it only one way.
