| Wes chapter 1 . 1/1/2015
Nightmarish, terrifying, and the perfect end to such a horrible villain.
| Dorminchu chapter 1 . 11/8/2014
A bit heavy-handed for my tastes, but really good, nevertheless. :D Pokey's dialogue, Giygas using Pokey's voice and the bit about the screaming Starman were my favorite parts.
| A Fellow Writer chapter 1 . 10/24/2014
To be personally honest, after playing both EarthBound and Mother3 and realizing the strong implications behind Porky's actions, I felt no sympathy for him. And even laughed harshly when he locked himself in the Absolutely Safe Capsule. But seeing the effects of doing so for possibly millennia... I still don't feel bad for him. He's committed way too many atrocities for his own selfish gain. The worst being what poor Lucas had to experience, the worst being both what happened to Hinawa and Claus respectively. If Porky is gonna be locked in there and survive even after 5.5 billion years from now, and still never accept his faults... Then this is the go to story to ready to learn of his more than deserving fate. Excellent read, from start to finish.

Holy crap. This is really raw and hit all the good spots. Thank you.
| Wes chapter 1 . 6/5/2014
Truly terrifying. I always wondered if Porky ever truly understood how long forever is, or if he ever regretted his evil actions. Like many others have said, it feels like you demonized the Chosen Four a bit too much... But I like the idea of Giygas being an innocent, forced by others to do evil. Overall, it feels like a good fanfic. It truly makes the reader feel sorry for Porky, then realize that he doesn't care about what he'd done, and that he thinks that he didn't deserve to be punished.
| Magatama chapter 1 . 7/9/2010
This is a beautiful story... I have nothing else to say about it.
I was listening to a song called 'Message of Regret' as I read and it intensified the effect that this fic had on me.
| ThatFanFicGuy chapter 1 . 4/29/2010
Man, this was like some twisted Earthbound version of the Twilight Zone!
| KamirouBa chapter 1 . 6/1/2009
I'm a big Porky fan & I'm not easily offended, so I can bear this story, even if I think it was a cruel story for Porky.
It was well-written, nonetheless.. :D
& if there was anything I liked about it was the fact Porky remained stubborn forever. Even when no one cared.
& if there's one thing I totally disagree on is the theory that Giegue is innocent... I don't buy it at all XD
Oh, well. Each to its own
| Lunatic of a Third Kind chapter 1 . 2/13/2009
For a long time while playing EarthBound the character of Pokey confused me.
Usually, when confronted with a villain, I'll either like them or just forget about them. But in Pokey Minch I have found a character I can honestly hate - and you pretty much captured why I hate him in one.
I say it again: You are an awe-inspiring writer who needs to be heralded as so more often.
| mrsaturn123 chapter 1 . 2/12/2009
Truly one of the most disturbing fanfics I think I've ever read. Very well written indeed though. I feel bad for Pokey actually, but at the same time he did so many terrible things.
But just the thought of what his fate holds is...terrifying.
Excellent job though. I don't think many could describe this better.
| Dragon's Return chapter 1 . 1/13/2009
That was... wow.
Just awesome. I could probably write a bit more if this story couldn't be summarized in just that single word.
| Nanimonaimono chapter 1 . 1/7/2009
Terrifying in the best way possible. I believe the visions he had were produced by his own mind, thought I can't be certain - it just seems all the more fitting, and even more cruel.
Every bit of narration was chilling, specially when it was about Pokey's state. The dialogue, though, was the best part. Specially the humorous lines. I can't believe I had it in me to laugh at the "not dying a virgin" part.
I would've liked some more insight on his actions, namely from Mother 3 characters, but I really have no room to complain. It was an amazing read. I think we all thought the Perfectly Safe Capsule was a terrible place to end up in, and imagining what would become of Pokey inside it was already chilling and enough to produce some sympathy , but you expanded on those ideas better than I could've imagined.
Lastly, I wanna quote my favorite part: Pokey forced his feeble body to hoist itself up, his withered throat and lips and vocal cords to form his words of defiance. “I… did… nothing… wrong.”
The fact that he'd go as far as to force his rotten body to talk, JUST to say something like that, is a punch to the gut that almost took away all my sympathy. Really, I think the point of a story is to cause feelings in the reader, and in that sense, this couldn't have been any better.
SHORT VERSION: THIS IS AWESOME AND YOU'RE AWESOME, YEAAHH.
| stripess chapter 1 . 11/9/2008
I have no words for this. It's absolutely beautiful... in a macabre sort of way.
| PhenixFleur chapter 1 . 8/11/2008
...damn. That was hardcore. Excellent though.
