Reviews for Narrative Discretion
Nvrmore chapter 1 . 5/6/2017
I can't believe I didn't review this the first time I read it!

Very well done. I remember thinking about this as well.

Well written, too.

I have to say I was following along right up until the end. I don't know if I'm just having an off day, but I'm not sure why they're discussing the poison. Is it the tentacles thing, the taint, or something else I missed in the context clues entirely? And the broken promise: was that about using the poison, or talking about it?

The narrative is well written, and you did a good job capturing many of the characters. I hope you have continued to write since this was posted. You have a good writing voice.

Choo! Shivery. The whole turning women into broodmothers thing has always been creepy, and I /always/ kinda wondered why Ander's didn't bring it up in the game. Not that it matters, really. This is SO freaking well written.

That was a tricky way to tell the story, but it worked beautifully and the reveal was powerful - I hadn't seen it coming at all, that particular truth of the Deep Roads, and then everything else immediately clicked into place. Really well done!

It is evident in game play that Varric enjoys his bardic creative licenses, but it hadn't occurred to me - despite what we know from prior installments - that there are things they would see that are just so horrifying that they cannot be retold.

Great job with this.

oh wow. awesome story! this fits perfectly with the reality of how awful the deep roads really are, including the threat of broodmother-hood. *shudders* ewwww...

great story!

Excellently done, though I must admit it took me a little while to remember just how horrific the broodmother sequence was in Origins.

Wow. Perfect. Loved it.

Holy sh*t, that was beautiful.

The double layer, the story told and the one not told, is fantastic. I love it.
