    The Critic Returns runing late
    Posted By machievelli - 10/27/14
    Medical problems still. I think I am clinically blind in my right eye. Unless the doctors can find out what is causing it, I fear for my left eye. But as long as I can see the screen, the reviews will continue!

    This week we only had two people get a pick, but their body of combined works are listed because they are both extremely good. So to start off, instead of going over them all so far, go to their home pages at

    Been having one of those weeks. Thanks to the way I deal with medical problems (You have a problem with a cough, talk to an EENT, you have a problem with you're eyes, you go to an Ophthalmologist) I don't have a primary care doctor. So with this recurring eye infection I now have to choose one. Hopefully I can have someone at the med center sign me up this upcoming week.

    But enough about this old man, on to the reviews!

    We start off with the well written work of Writtenrhythm with
    One More Time
    Then Rosabell with When the Sky Falls

    But best was a tie, the hilarious work of Roc Lammergeier and Potatoe Girl starting with The Random Ramblings of Revan and Elina Trevisan's Savior

    Sorry I had you wait, and I hope this was worth it. Finished it, and it's a 14 page monster! My eye is much better, thank you very much, though I still need reading glasses to see the screen. But let's stop talking about me, on to the reviews!

    We start at Coruscant Entertainment Center where Msficwriter gave us FORMLESS: Chapter 1: An Eightfold Fortune

    Then over to where we begin with MarshMella andThere is No Death followed by Rosabell with Dark Guardian
    then Tara Seline withPredator of Manand Kebiin with 3,956 BBY then Kosiah with Gifts Nyghtraven returns with Fallen Embers xMadGodx gives us Revanchi ending with
    AdylinJ and Healing the Force

    Best of the Week was split between Outre with Cost Of Family
    and Vyrazhi who I know as Msficwriter above with her combined pick for DEAR MASTER LUCAS DEAR MASTER LUCAS II and DEAR MASTER LUCAS III: REVENGE OF THE SITH

    Well back to writing. See you next week. Signing off...

    Having problems with an eye infection again. Will see the ophthalmologist on Tuesday, and not the first one, who took over two months to decide to call in a specialist either! So if there are misspellings above, forgive me.

    But on to the reviews!

    No bests this week, but all of them are worth reading. We start off with Greengrass1914 and Those Who Trespass Against Us followed by Lliskio with Dead Man's Memories and LocketStar14126 with Legacy of Dustil then MarshMella with His Place and last but definitely not least, Sonny23 with Force Unleashed: Nomi Marek

    Well back to other stories. Signing off...

    Well I'm off to the ophthalmologist again. I don't know if it's an infection or maybe glaucoma, which does afflict the elderly. And while 61 doesn't sound old these days, I never expected to live beyond 30.

    So let's see what I have for you this week.

    We start with TwixtNightAndMorn's Absolution

    And best of the week to Gwendolyn Rogan for Savior

    Well back to work. Did you know having an eye infection interferes with writing? Signing off...

    I feel like Don Quixote.

    Last week I mentioned that I was all set to take on the state regarding food stamps. On Monday I got a second letter saying they had been approved, so I built up all of that steam for nothing. Running late, obviously, but part of that is the lucasforums site is down, and can't get to it. Can't really explain why because I think I just took a couple of mental health days in there. But I'm back, and let's get started!

    We start off our weekly picks with Yassen275 and Through The Eyes of The Exilefollowed by Jedi.Knight.of.Geekdom with KotOR Oneshots of the Random Variety

    But Best of the Week went to Shadows Of The Storm who gave us Beginning of the End

    Sorry about the delay. I will try to do better. Signing off...

    Having yet another one of those weeks. If I cannot get the state off it's ass I will be without food stamps, and also without medical insurance. So I have to convince them to do their jobs. But getting any bureaucrat to do his job can be a thankless task. So let's get on with the reviews.

    Two picks this week; Divergent Destiny by Bill the Bard and After the Trial
    Inder. But again no best.

    So now I have all my data together, and on the 22nd, I will shove it into their faces and ask what part of 'not complying' am I actually guilty of. I have to wait that long because my work schedule. I am in the middle of working ten days straight, and while I am, my weekend is the actual weekends, so I can't do it any earlier. Wish me luck.

    For the first time in a decade, I'm off on Labor Day. Since it's always just been a day to me, I'm reminded of the politician being run out of town on a rail; if it wasn't for the publicity, I would have just walked'.

    The only excitement was when the idiot who lives on the second floor fell asleep in the bathtub with the water running, so I had rain inside my home. I'll be moved to another apartment briefly while they repair and repaint.

    Well enough about me. On to the reviews!

    We had several picks this week starting with Jowx97 and As Small Stars Fly Back Home Then From Pen to Paper scored twice with Move and Her Last Smile
    From Pen to Paper then the Reprise pick from kotorfanmedia, Mister Buch with Of the Fall But none of them had the spark that leads to a best.

    Well it's time to buy groceries. Signing off...

    The Critic Returns way late
    Posted By machievelli - 08/24/14
    Had an uneven two weeks. Last week I was just getting over a serious hacking cough (Later found it was pneumonia) when my new computer began doing some seriously odd crap. Using the left shift key caused a tone when depressed, and I couldn't use parenthesis because the begin key would not work. Right shift key worked, but still. Then it began forcing me to reboot pretty much every day. So last Tuesday I had to send it to the manufacturer for work.

    Then on Wednesday I had a chicken bone caught in my throat; not choking, but having trouble breathing. Picture the scene where Vader is choking the loud mouth. Now picture the man trying to call his office and tell them he might not be in the next day. After waiting from around 7:30 until 11:30 the next day for someone to actually use an endoscope to say, 'hey, you know you got a piece of bone stuck in there?', they finally removed it.

    Why did I say uneven? There is one guy I chat with constantly; an ex Air Force medic, and he said that the only reason I was still alive was because I smoke. That's right, smoking does do one thing for you. If I were one of those stuck up 'smoking is bad for you' types, I would have ended up in surgery with god alone knows how many days of work missed because my throat would have clamped down.

    Then again, if I had to do it again...

    Well that explains why I am way late, so let's get this show on the road.

    We start our picks of the week with a Revan that can't seem to find a reason to even care in Sara1281's So Not My Problem followed by the Exile getting even with Atton tickling her with Mishamishamisha's Ticklish? then Princess Ashira having the Exile stranded on a plant where no one understands her and about to be executed in A Silent Awakening

    But Best went to a scene right out of my old Dungeon Master's days with Kebiin's Jag ti naysol kad aue

    Well first rule, since I do my own cooking. Bite down to find the bone before you swallow. Signing off...

    The Critic returns a little bit late
    Posted By machievelli - 08/12/14
    Running way late. I have a flu that is more like a miasma, affecting me from the moment I get up until I go to bed. Every time I got home, and should have turned to finishing this review, I found myself waking up the next morning, instead. I am sorry, and I will be seeing a doctor about this. I hate having anything interfere with my life!

    This week we had two picks, but neither was best. They are Val Perham with Url=]Full Of Grace[/url]and Chapellefan withMira's Last Job.

    Now getting my cranky ass out of bed to do what I must. Signing off...

    Been slacking on one story, and going balls to the wall on another. The second has by my estimate almost 60,000 words, but only about 25,000 have been posted. But I will not leave that one story to go fallow. No siree!

    So first the reviews...

    We start with the amusing story from Mike the Syrjirk with The Time Schedule
    followed by the reason Revan fell the second time with trueromantic333's The Second Fall of Darth Revan Then a war weary Revan in Noxae's Last Stand

    But Best went to a revan intent on getting her memory back, regardless of cost with Naamah Beherit's Something Dark is Coming

    So break time is over, Back on my head! Signing off...
