Hiya writer friends! I am so happy to open up this thread to anyone whose looking for a review. I figured this would be a good way to get to know you all as writers and to find some interesting stories that I might not normally read through a quick search. I guess I should tell you a bit more about my reviewing style, reading preferences, and nonstarters for me, so we can determine if we’re a good fit.  :)

How I Review:

~ I am generally a positive, easily excitable person, so you can expect that sort of behavior from me online and in my reviews. I will point out the things I love and generally not comment on the things that didn’t work for me. But I may ask a question if there’s something that I just didn’t understand or if something was unclear to me. Or if I’m genuinely curious about learning more about something. Just know that the questions come from a place of curiosity and from a place of trying to understand something. It's not meant critically. 

~ I can constructively critique if you ask. I never feel comfortable just doing this without prompting because I recognize the amount of hard work it takes to write. If you're looking for that sort of critique I can give it in terms of theme, plot, characterization, and any other element of writing. I'm not a grammar queen and take a more stylistic approach to writing, so if you're looking for someone with ability to check grammar, I'm probably not your girl.  

~ I almost always comment on writing style or try to identify themes if something resonates with me. I might pull out direct lines from the text and flail and rave about them. (I’m easily excitable remember?)

~ Gushing and lots of “you gave me the feels” might transpire too if you know how to emotionally snag me. 

~ Also, I kind of review as I read, but then usually try and tie it all together at the end in a way that makes it sound somewhat coherent. 

 

Preferences: 

+ I prefer to read HP or OF. But if you want me to read another fandom and I don’t need a lot of context for understanding then I might consider it. Just PM me. Due to time constraints in my personal life, I probably won’t research a fandom I am not familiar with. But if you feel like no context is needed, or you want an outsider perspective then bring it on.  

+ I’ll pretty much read any genre, except horror. Extensive gore or violence isn’t really my thing, but I can handle some of that.

+ I love fringe characters, rare pairs, and OCs. Idk why, but I do. If your story has one or more of those things then I’ll be all about it. Canon main characters are wonderful too and I enjoy them too as well (duh I mean look at me getting hysterical about a certain redheaded family every ten minutes). 

 

Nonstarters:

- I am not a fan of in depth non con. If it’s an unwanted pursuit then fine, but I can’t handle graphic depictions of rape. Mentions or implications I can handle. But the act itself, it's too difficult for me to read.

- Same goes for anything that might graphically depict any violence towards or physical abuse of children. It's too difficult for me. Again mentions of implications of it, I should be ok.  

- Incest (although I don’t think we’re allowing that here, but just figured I'd throw it here anyway).

-Dramione, Tom Riddle, or other major villains or pairings where one of the "baddies," is a main features. I'm just not interested in these characters/pairings truthfully. 

 

When Requesting: 

~ To start, I'll keep three slots open. But if this proves to be too difficult then I will drop it down to two. 

~ I'll try to get to your review within a week, but two weeks seems to be the universal timeline here, so just remind me if I haven't left a review in two weeks. My memory is 💩

~ Please submit a request for one chapter at a time. Try not to take all three slots, so as to give other people a chance to submit a request ;) But if no one else has taken the other open slots within a 24 hour period then feel free to take the other two.

~ Below is the form for your convenience :) I look forward to reading all of your good stuff!
