Reviews for Last Rites
hragaman chapter 1 . 6/10/2008
Can't for the life of me put my finger on it, but something about this made me kinda choke up. Perhaps it was the, not sadness, but the melancholy hanging like a fog over them. This was very nice. Thankyou.

Whoa. That's kind of funny, but mostly sad. Very well written, though.
RandomTopic chapter 1 . 3/3/2008
...Wow. Powerful. Loved the variations of the jokes. And the answer to the last question... it's when they're dead, right?
Malselene chapter 1 . 1/28/2008
That makes me sad reading that. It's just such a powerful insight into the ways the turk's minds work. It's all so perfect the balance of utter morbitiy and a touch of humor. It doesn't quite make me as sad as white carnations but almost.

Must keep thinking the turks don't actually die.
Agent07 chapter 1 . 1/23/2008
this is so sad. I can only barely refrain myself from crying everytime I read it. the morbidity, the gallows humour and irony of it all is done perfectly. it helps one to really understand the turk mentality, provides a little consolation for poor Tseng and yet the inevitable has to happen. all in all the piece speaks for itself and there is nothing to complain about. brilliant job, now excuse me while I go to sob until dehydration comes.

...ouch. That's a kicker in the chest right there. I mean, just...ouch.

"You're a Turk, aren't you?"

"I was, once."

"You don't stop," Tseng said.

"I suppose not."

That resonates so very powerfully with the last "joke" about, "When is a Turk not a Turk?" Because, as Tseng said, only other Turks will hear their confessions. And no matter what Vincint said, he is still a Turk at heart.

I've got a little lump in my throat from reading this. It was...perfect.

Now THAT's Angst/Humor

Absolutly Beautiful ... I loved it.
yllom21 chapter 1 . 9/26/2007
Wow, what a unique idea, a certainly believeable! Good job!
monitorscreen chapter 1 . 9/23/2007
Beautiful. I like their camaraderie here, that sense of tradition, and how they can be unfazed in the face of death. The true spirit of the Turks. A memorable piece.
pandiink chapter 1 . 7/4/2007
my goodness.. I dunno if you're still writing, but this little scenario just made my day for some reason. Really well written on a wistfully sad/black comedy note.. I like it lotta~ :)
hotrodngold chapter 1 . 6/29/2007
*whine* that was strangely satisfying, if incredibly sad... T_T
Following Padfoot's Pawprints chapter 1 . 5/30/2007
That was sad. Very well written though. I enjoyed the quirky Turk references.

Guest chapter 1 . 4/13/2007
Loved how you ended this. "When is a Turk not a Turk?" was a completely appropriate joke/question, and Tseng's silence/death is an enormously eloquent answer.
blaaaaank chapter 1 . 4/4/2007
Wow, cool. I can't tell if they're jokes, or some kind of masonic-like reconising thing, but I like it.
