|Reviews for Five Ways Carth and Revan Weren't Reunited|
| machievelli chapter 1 . 10/2/2013
Posted 6 April 2013, at the Starwarsknights web site and the Lucasforums Coruscant Entertainment Center in my The Critic's Two Cents. I was posting directly to the actual story threads, but my computer went down for the second time in six months with a virus in June of 2012. Then in November kotorfanmedia went down for reasons unknown, so I was stymied in my attempts to post the reviews. I had waited for it to revive, but you on fanfiction deserve your reviews.
Some of the work I read is what I consider worthy of a professional. These are marked as Picks of the Week. While they are posted on Starwarsknights I am adding the best of the week where applicable.
Post KOTOR: The ways it could have been...
The writing is crisp, each vignette clearly defined. I especially enjoyed the expanation of Carth's 'I have my orders' comment, because the author is right. I enjoyed all three chapter (Only a bit over 1500 words, so I could take the time) and I was glad I did. Only one problem...
There were only three ways.

Love it! Especially the last chapter oddly enough. Would have enjoyed reading the other two if they'd been written!

"where [no] civilians were killed by falling debris? I loved this fic untill the last paragraph, which I don't think was needed: but noting the mention of Dustil, it may be explaining some backstory/conspiracy that I just don't get. So Dustil did something...but not knowing what it was, and only hearing about it at the very end, lessens the impact. The takeover of the Republic by the Sith (name them, please) was handled well, artisticly, surreally almost.

Interseting concept. It's a pity that Revan never snaps out of the very plausible funk, though. I'd like to see more about what she was halucinating before he really arrived. The dialogue is good.
I'm confused about how Carth and the Exile got there and why "You (Exile) want us (Revan and Carth?) to leave you here,", and why it's then Carth that stays on the planet, indefinitly? *is confused* Some typos didn't help: "you was still braced against the wall".

The title confuses me. They seem reuinted to me...or do you mean outside this story? *shrug* I'm fond of CarthRevan, and the awkwardness and clever wording about the awkwardness in this fic were good, but my favorite thing about this chapter is definitly the snarky Exile. lol! One critique: "she began, but didn’t have a chance to finish because Carth had bounded up the loading ramp and was kissing her." just doesn't flow right, perhaps because of the 'was'. A typo: "just short of loading ramp". Enjoyable little fic!

Ah, I meant to leave a review for this ages ago but apparently age has withered my brain...
Anyway...the first three of these have been really compelling and lave me with a good ache somewhere in my chest - my favourite feeling after a good read!

Gah. WHY have only two people reviewed? This is wonderful! I loved the first way, the second made me cry, and the third made me fall off my seat with laughter. Even though it probably wasn't supposed to be funny. But, hey, I laugh at most things...
You've really got a talent for writing, and this? This is going straight on my favourites list. Well done. It's really difficult to get there...

I love reunion shorts. Can't wait for 3-5.

Aw, this is really cute! I'm looking forward to seeing what your other four ideas are-not all of them happy, I'm guessing... You did the awkwardness and humor very well, though there were some distracting typos. Overall though, nice job.
