    Author: Niger Aquila
    Rating: K+
    Genre: General
    Status: Complete Oneshot
    Fandom: 1984 and Assassin's Creed
    Summary: "In a world where nothing is true and no man is free, the ancient conflict between the Assassins and the Templars rages on."
    Link: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9357388/1/Those-Who-Linger

    As the summary says, this is a oneshot showing how would the two organizations from AC survive and exist in the world of Oceania, Eastasia and Eurasia as seen in the novel 1984.

    Haven't played the games myself I can't judge the characterizations, but I enjoyed it anyway.

    5/5

    I like it. Its simple, to the point, and without any presumption. It tells a neat little pre-story that is quite enjoyable.

    5/5

    What is this 1984? Is knowing what this is necessary to read the fic?

    Edit: I meant the novel, for clarity.

    I wrote a reply, but it wasn't very nice, so I had to scrap it and start over. How about this?

    No. I am not joking. As evidenced by my post having nothing to indicate an attempt at joking.

    You've never heard of 1984 by George Orwell? It's one of the most famous pieces of modern literature ever (at least in my opinion); something that really did shape public opinion heavily.

    The one shot was decent, I suppose, but it didn't exactly grab my imagination. I am more confused as to how the assassins and templars let this happen, really, as to why they didn't, you know, assassinate the people pushing for the new system, but it has been quite some time since I've read 1984.

    Not exactly looking for more in this universe, the characters didn't seem particularly interesting, and while the prospect of templars and assassins working together against a common enemy is neat, didn't really feel much from this.

    It's just not very memorable or exciting, in fact, I already forgot most of it.

    3/5
