|Reviews for When Night Falls|
| dustswirl chapter 66 . 2/24
So here I go with my review. This story was just amazing. You have a very strange, special, and way too powerful ability to keep your characters actually in-character, I felt all the way as if I was watching a movie, only that it was all in my mind. The descriptions were so vivid, the dialogs so rich as they included every single gesture of body language, so natural. Remarkable the way you handed Cad Bane's personality, I, sir, take my hat off my head to that. You made me love your OC's also, I almost cried when Britani died, such a sweet and brave woman she was. Rex was all about honor an manlyness and independence, good ol' Rexter, Derik (or Derek, you couldn't decide on wich form to use lol) was also an amazing character, so passionate yet so dedicated to his friends good being, so reckless! And Ahsoka... It was sublime man, so loving, so passionate, so innocent, so strong! The descriptions of the hardware, the situations, the places. This story deserves it's own movie, if only it were possible for a very small group of people to make a decent movie in a reasonable time... Will it come the time when fan made movies are just as common (and high quality btw) as fanfics are today?...
Finally, I can't help it to feel that sad and melancholic feeling yo get when an amazing story comes to it's sublime end. I think when you die, you take three things with you: How much you did for yourself and for others, how much you loved, and how much you dreamed, and reading excellent stories like this is one hell of a way to dream!
I also can't help but notice you... stopped publishing stuff here, I hope you read this review... I also hope you write one day those sequels and prequels you were talking about... I'm sure the hundreds or maybe thousands of people who read When Night Falls, are anxiously waiting for them.
I'm no christian, but I believe in a good and loving God, and I hope He blesses you and those of yours.
PD: Was this too long? xDDDD

Well, that was a really good story! The dialogue was strong and seemed in character. As someone who is somewhat wary of OCs, I must say I was impressed: you handled them very well. I suppose that the strongest part of your story was that it was always going somewhere, if that makes sense. Even when one of the characters was experiencing yet another heroic blue-screen-of-death (TvTropes: Look it up!), the plot was moving, never going in circles or staying in the same place too long.
As someone with a college workload, I understand that the stories are not easy to make time to write, but is there any chance you might one day write a sequel or a broken up "adventures of" type of continuation to this story? Maybe with an accidental encounter with everyone's favorite Mandalorian clan? At any rate, great job! Good day to you, fellow of the Faith!
And may the Force be with you...

really good story.

A very interesting story! And I can't help but find it very good indeed to read a story which is promoting good values (whether that was your intention or not). Such exemples are so hard to find nowadays...
Brit's words in general were always very interesting. Her view about the conflicts within the Jedi Order especially. And I couldn't help but recognize who exactly is the wise man she quoted when saying that those who live by the sword, will die by the sword.
Which leads me to another topic: your rant in a previous chapter about the influence of Christianism in your story. l think that our religion is an important part of who we are. Obviously it influenciates our opinions and your writing. And you have all the right to express it! But if you ever feel pressured by other people about it, remember He will always be with you. As will be all of us, your brothers and sisters in Christ.

It's always rare to find a story that pulls one in so tightly, one that beckons to be read when away from it. And this had to be the most gripping example of such a story that I've ever had the pleasure of coming across. Your painting of the adventure was so vivid, and unexplainably real, that I would be drawn back to it every few hours, even staying up into the late hours of the morning for several consecutive nights just to knock off one more chapter. It was certainly an emotional, and at times quite frustrating, ride that you created - I found myself in tears several times towards the end, which was a sure sign that I was attached to your story if ever there was one. I'm almost upset that I won't have it to come back to now, but if you're in the midst of a sequel, I may very well be obligated to check it out.
Well done, on the creation of such a fantastic rendering of this incredible journey. I'm not sure I'll ever get the thoughts you've made me think regarding these themes out of my head. My greatest hope right now is that I'll find a few days' reprieve someday soon, so that I may find the obligation to recount this story's masterful telling all over again. Congrats on the success; it's very well-earned. :)

Wow! Amazing story! I usually don't like Order 66 or post order 66 stories, but this one totally captivated me! I thought it was kinda funny that there are 66 chapters... :P Again, crazy amazing story!

"The light from your eyes shows me the way, when night falls."
That's it. Wonderful and amazing inflexion point, this is when she finally feels she has to tell Rex her true feelings, I'm enjoying this story way too much :D

Yay for cull. Tis a shame he didn't join although he'd already made up his mind. It was a good, honorable choice.

*Sigh* It's always so sad when a great story come to an end, but I must say, as far as endings go, this was a great one. Loved the fact that Rex got to put in his two credits worth on the attachment argument. I think it's important for Obi-Wan to hear the argument from the side of a non-Force-sensitive. Gives a little perspective and this was simply great. These two men have shared a lot and I love the fact that Obi-Wan, despite everything that has happened, still respects Rex enough to heed his feelings and opinions. The question about Cody was inevitable, I suppose, but I love how you handled it. The explanation that the Contingency Orders were unthinking reflex, that Cody probably regretted the action as soon as he gave the order, made such perfect sense and really fits into Cody's character. It's always difficult to explain why good men like Cody, or Wolffe or Bly complied with Order 66, but I think your take explains it the best.
And Derek and Ahsoka got Knightd! I have to say, I am thrilled. The idea of them being left as orphaned Padawans was quite depressing. They have far outgrown the limitations of Padawans and it was good of Obi-Wan to recognize that fact. Just as it was good of him to realize that he belongs to an Order that is now more or less obsolete in this new galaxy. He's right of course, the New Order needs Jedi like Ahsoka and Derek, who are not so set in their ways to explore new avenues of the Force, discover new interpretations. I am greatly looking forward to what they will make of their lives from now on. It seems they are already fully embroiled in the rising rebellion, but many questions are left unanswered. But then, that is the qualification of a good ending: leave some loose threads for the reader to wonder about. That is what makes it real.
May the Force be with you, for writing such an amazing story.
