Rules Of Engagement

by spiderflower 2 Reviews

Thrall and Jaina, during Twilight Of The Gods: in the orc-human alliance, it's a case of keeping your enemies closer. Definite underpinnings of TxJ. One-shot.

    First I'll say that I've only played Warcraft 2, then skimmed a bit of the lore prior to starting up WoW. Still, even if I don't have a clear view of what exactly is going on, I have no problem whatsoever enjoying your story. I guess that says a lot about your writing skills :)
    You make me feel for these characters even though I hardly know who they are. Thrall especially shines as a courtly orc. The concept is beautiful and you work wonderfully with it (in Ceasefire too, even more - which I also loved).

    I do find that the descriptions get a little bit wordy at times, but somehow you never quite spill over in purple prose. There's a very beutiful flow to your way of weaving a story, creating a feel of a classical tale of some kind.

    I must say though, that I raised my eyebrows at a couple of things with Jaina - now, I understand that she's tough, and you want her to seem that way, but that thing with the very possibly cracked rib and the broken finger seems a wee bit unbelievable in the sense of her seemingly not caring at all about it. But otherwise, I thoroughly enjoyed reading both your Warcraft stories.

    From a hardcore player's POV: I loved every syllable. And I respectfully disagree with the previous reviewer's statements about the finger and rib injuries being unbelievable; adrenaline by itself can keep people going who have sustained far worse injuries. Anyway... the descriptions are beautiful and the writing is far superior to most professional fantasy/romance writers I've come across lately.

    OH %$^#... I just noticed you wrote Ceasefire(!)... Best WoW FF ever. EVAR. That's actually the story I came her to find, and then I read this one, and thought, "gee, this is almost as good as that one story I was looking for..."

    Ha. You're awesome.
