Reviews for When the War is Over
LexietFive chapter 1 . 7/14/2012
Loved this so much. It's brilliant. It's true I hated that the mysterons were fired on without warning at least. But the issues of colour coding and naming spectrums personnel well I just howled. Westlife Angel? And using the Dulux colour cards? Priceless. Then Scarlet and Black friends at the end on their uppers. Fantastic.

Very clever story, nearly fell off my seat laughing at 'Captain Vermin Brown'. This would be such a great fan film, even if it only appeared on YouTube. Loved the humour - and great to see Paul and Conrad friends at the end.

sheer genius.

Absolutely bloody brilliant.
Rollieo 122 chapter 1 . 4/26/2010
I laughed so much at this, it was actually genius! I like how Paul still has his posh accent, but Conrad's has turned to a Mancunian one... The two of then actually being friendly for once is good.

The confusion over the colour code-names was funny (and they turned to Dulux for ideas? Nice!), and the names for the Angels (Boyzone Angel etc. - I laughed so much at this)...

This was an awesome story, and very well written!

I have absolutely nearly bust a gut with laughter at this tale! Yup, this is what happens when peace breaks out between Earth and the Mysterons. I love the character plays and especially the obvious effort you have put in with researching colour names of the spectrum operatives (The DCC!), and with naming the Angels. I bloody well hope this gets made in to a fan film! Hilarious and hysterical. Well done and I hope there will be more! Would love an actual episode on the working day of Metcalfe and Turner at Sky-TV...

The Black Doll chapter 1 . 1/7/2010
Good fun. I must admit, I always wanted the Mysterons to win anyway. They were so much more interesting than all those clean-cut chappies . . .
Flamin' June chapter 1 . 11/24/2009
Excellent stuff! I especially liked down-and-out Paul, and White's and Polyhymnia's recollections of the code-name issue! And what a pleasure to see someone else who likes Scarlet, Pratchett and Adams! Not many of us around...
SpaceAnJL chapter 1 . 11/11/2009
For some reason, I could hear Bird and Fortune reading half of this.

(Another recommend - Richard Morgan. Ignore his foray into fantasy fiction - shudderingly horrible. But his dystopian future fic is entertaining. 'Black Man' has some good stuff on the future of retired ops.)
Mr Stereo1 chapter 1 . 11/11/2009
Well written, but I'm afraid I got confused with all the changes in theme and writing style.
