Ye, roll me one please.

Finally got through with Chris! Chris was a pretty good read, though his early threads were sort of plagued with spelling errors and redundancy that took me out of his story a bit. I think Chris is a pretty solid example of adoption done well, and Deamon did a good job of getting in his head and trimming down the filler.

While Chris was well-written, he unfortunately sort of faded into the background in his larger earlier threads, to the point where his allies seemed to forget all about him when his activity slowed down, and afterwards he never stuck together with anyone else for long. I liked his death when I first read it back in V5 and still do, both for the subtle power move of forcing Hansel to look him in the face as he's dying and for the fact that his last thought is admiring Hansel's eye color, of all things. Overall, he's sort of a background character but a pretty good one.

I'll take another!

Mark was I think the first-ever inactive death that I read on the site back when I was new, so that's something, I guess.

Honestly there's not much to say about him, since his only on-island post was the inactive kill. Disappointing to see someone gone that way so soon and his death didn't seem to have much impact on other characters who knew him from what I recall.

I'll have another.

I remembered liking Rosemary a lot back when I was a newbie in V5 and I'm pretty pleased to say that she holds up very well a few years down the line, enough for me to really regret that MrMrsMissRandom didn't make it into V6 with the improvement they saw with Rosemary under their belt.

wall of text incoming


All in all, Rosemary was very good. The technical issues with MrMrsMissRandom's writing get better as the story goes along, and throughout her misadventures Rosemary remains a generally good person, struggling to find a reason to keep going. She feels very real and human with her allergies and her getting upset over being rejected by a boy, and even the moments where I'm skeptical of the logic going on I can smooth over with the excuse that people make dumb mistakes. Rosemary always pays for her mistakes too, which makes them a lot easier to roll with than if she was blundering all over with no consequence. I really recommend Rosemary for those who haven't read her, and I'm very happy that she holds up so well compared to how I remembered her.

I'll take another.
