    Okay, this is probably a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad joke, but I just can't resist, so:

    If you add two more letters to the wife's name, Snoke would be married to weed. [face_laugh]

    Not bad at all, I like the elements of classical mythology you put in there, I've always been interested in Greek and Roman culture. Also like the Doctor Who reference with be weeping angels. I could imagine Snoke as a typical old man in Crete, you did a good job Portraying him that way.

    Ewok Poet - Thank you, I love everything about your review. Don't get why the "sith tonne of sea gods" quote had you laughing like a drain, though.

    Cowgirl Jedi 1701 - thank you for the observation.

    Emperor Ferus - Cheers. I am glad I managed to portray Snoke as an old man, okay; though the first eight lines were written by somebody else.

    Okay. I read these stories as you posted them, and I didn't even "like" your posts to say that I had been here, which kind of sucks [face_blush] But now that I re-read the whole lot (and distributed the "likes" as I should in the first place), you get a big fat review to compensate.

    Island Surprise

    Oh the laughs, the laughs! I stared laughing when the lightsaber spoke to Luke, and I couldn't stop laughing until the end. The idea of Mara in a bikini on Skellig Island, her lightsaber at her side... no wonder you got a nom for that one too, it's one of the zaniest ideas I've ever read. I loved your snark at TFA, "he left the academy before you taught him any moves, that doesn't half-sound like what I did when I first met Han", etc. And the idea that Luke and Mara are there because they're on a holiday organised by Interstellar Tours? Okay, I'm going to stop now because instead of listing every detail of this story that made me laugh, I could copy-paste the story instead.

    Jokes aside now, I particularly loved Mara in this story. Even throughout the zaniness, her characterisation was spot-on: bossy, snarky and no-nonsense. Her final line about waiting for the cruise ship did me in [face_laugh]

    The Millenium Falcon

    Another story to prove that when you don't like something, sarcasm is the best defense and the best defense is offense.

    This was a festival of everything that could go wrong on every possible level of the TFA plot. The scene I particularly enjoyed was the passage in the Starkiller Base command room -- Kylo going hysterical, Hux snubbing him, and no one having thought that a black hole at the heart of the planet was a bad idea. BTW, is this black hole thing something you made up, or was it mentioned somewhere in the movie or other canon material? I don't seem to remember it, but I don't pay much attention to such details.

    Sage Advice

    I've got to say that I was a bit lost on this one -- which isn't criticism, it's just that I felt you were referring to stuff I don't know. I do know that Yav is an OC of yours, but I haven't read those stories yet; however I also got the impression reading this that there was an element of crossover, but with which fandom?

    Hospital Visit

    Now I'm back on safer territory, because I didn't need any explanations to follow this one :D I hope your muse helps you recover the end, because this was good fun too, although it does touch upon more serious topics than the others -- and this showed very early on, with the idea that the old Rebel medical frigate had been repurposed as a brainwashing centre for children kidnapped by the FO. That was a good action scene between Kylo and Twelve! But once again, what shone in this story was the snark. One reason I would like you to write the end is that I want to know what happened to the delightful Philippa. I understand that she won't get her underwear back, but a woman who flirts and laughs with a former Saber Guard definitely has something going for her.

    Snoke: Pirates

    This was absolutely precious! I didn't catch the Doctor Who reference on my first read -- I did a lot of Doctor Who reading on Wikipedia for another fic I'm following, so now I know what Weeping Angels are, but the concept fits so seamlessly with your references to Greek mythology that it didn't really matter in the first place.

    I love this concept of Snoke as an old man with a wife who calls him Snookey [face_laugh] and turns into a statue every time he looks at her -- and I love the fact that you made him into something of a peeping tom, because for some unexplainable reason that makes sense for him. What really made me squee though was how you integrated elements of mythology in the story *and* in the snark. The exchange about Leucothea still being up on Mount Olympus was hilarious.


    I'm looking forward to reading the two other Snoke stories you have in mind!

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi drabble​


    Dwarfed by the massive snake, Admiral Holdo used the Force to confirm that the cloaked Resistance transports were safely enroute to the Rebel base on Crait.

    She lifted a hand to the barely perceptible line on her throat, getting a thumbnail under it, and gently peeled the mask and purple wig off.

    "Whew." Breathed Darth Enemy. "It has been one frak of a day."

    Bright green laser bolts lanced wide of the Raddus, fireballing the cloaked convoy.

    "What?"

    "What did we say? Save the Resistance, and don't **** with Poe."

    "Again, not gay! Oh!" Enemy rounded on the Slith. "You meant-"


    The End?

    @Cowgirl Jedi 1701 @Ewok Poet

    Thank you for reading, and for the feedback.

    Whether for the mere presence of my oddly popular Sith Lord, or because you got the drabble, I am glad you enjoyed it.

    :cool:

    LOOOOOOL! Darth Enemy is back, and in the most unexpected guise, together with his Slith pals! I can just imagine what his life has been like over the centuries with a bunch of giant snakes stalking him everywhere he goes...

    ... until he disguises himself as Holdo. With a purple wig. And then he finds out that Poe is under the Slith's "protection".

    I'm going to continue laughing offline now, if that's okay.

    Well, Holdo/ Darth Enemy ****** with Poe, by not telling him that she/he even had a trumpet; whilst your second favourite Sith Lord thought they meant in a carnal sense.
