Reviews for Three Men Walk Into A Bar
AuronLu chapter 1 . 8/21/2015
I faved this years ago and never noted how much I love this story. Great portrait of all three through NPC eyes.
Icicle Streams chapter 1 . 12/13/2010
Gorgeous. Absolutely gorgeous. It was different, and really interesting. I love how everything tied in together, and how you gave a little backstory to Luca, Baralai and even your own little bar. And the last bit... I wouldn't mind being served some Al Bhed stout by a bartender named RyRy! (at least, I wouldn't if I wasn't underage...)

But yeah, great characterisation. I especially liked Baralai's part, and Gippal's was pretty good too. Great story!

I don't think I've ever seen a self-insert so clever before!

It was very enjoyable~

God, this was amazing. It's like...a memoir. It goes from curious to sad to cheery in one swift, smooth movement. Loved it! *hearts*

Sweet! XD; I wish Paine could've been included though. [
Mazzie May chapter 1 . 8/23/2007
Ah, good job! A surprisingly nice read. I say "surprisingly" because the title made me roll my eyes with a smile and wonder 'oh, this should be good.'

But really, a lovely story. Baralai's section was my favorite, personally. I only had one nose scrunching moment. Gippal. Fuzzy after only five beers? XD

I'll be faving this, if it's alright with you.

Loved it. That simple. Nooj, Baralai and Gippal are such different characters, for someone to be able to voice them all so perfectly is beyond impressive.

On top of that, I doubt most people could pull of a first-person narrative, using an original character, the way you have.

It was a really satisfying read, to see each of them searching for something, and later, to see they've found it.

Great stuff.

The glass was half-empty before I knew it.


eve chapter 1 . 6/29/2007
LOL oh my gosh I think that last line has to be my favorite! I was completely not expecting it :D

I really love these outside-character perspective stories, and yet, there are so few of them out there. They always offer an interesting take on the topic/fandom they're on, and this one reminds everyone that Spira is a vast world (continent?) with more than 6 people on it.

This especially worked for you, RyRy, because you have a unique sense of humor and a talent of writing moods and characters rather well. Like in "Switch", I went from laughing hysterically to staring somberly at my computer screen. Here, the story went from sort of interesting (because we the readers know things the narrator doesn't), to kinda depressing, back to interesting with a hint of humor, and finally a small happiness (with all the loose ends meeting). Although for me, the very end brought a laugh bubbling up my throat! hahahaha

I look forward to more of your work!
Tikkuy chapter 1 . 6/28/2007
Great story. I would have liked to have seen Paine involved as well, but I guess she wouldn't be much of a drinker, hmm? Very cute ending, RyRy. xD
Sirea the Beautiful Disaster chapter 1 . 6/28/2007
This was a great little story, I liked how you tied everything up in the end. You represented the characters very well, I thought, capturing a rather tumultuous time in their lives. I particularly liked the part with Gippal. Good job! ~S
