I will try to review, but don't expect me to hold back whatever's bothering me about a story. I'm not going to sugarcoat it, but I will try to be fair. You don't have to follow my review; it is your story, and you are the one writing it. I'm just trying to help get you thinking. You can ignore me for all I care, I'm just letting you know what one of your readers is thinking.
Well, I really hope you enjoy my works. You can ask me to read your stories also, if you want. The only reason I would bite is for horrible spelling, grammar, punctuation, and horrible plot structure. So if your spelling and grammar is decent (I'll still point it out though), your characters are believable, and if your story makes sense with plenty of explanation to support it, then I'll probably like it. Basically, most of my pet peeves can be found in my work, "Mary-Sue: Who is She?"
Please no fanfiction, that's why I'm on FF.Net.
I want to say no vampires, but if it's truly decent, I'll give it a chance.
No werewolves unless it's heavily inspired by the original traditional lore.
Let the title be good and not give away the story.
No "emos," "preps," and the other nine yards with the stereotyping. I am truly tired of this, more so than vampires.
LGBT and Straight stories are fine, as long as it's not explicit.
I don't mind taboos such as teacher/student pairings, incest, polygamy, etc. as long as all parties are humans who are able to make rational decisions (from older teens to an adult) and are consensual. Just make sure to keep the laws in mind when developing the characters and story.
I don't enjoy reader-insert, or second person stories. Just because I'm writing "A Smile to Hide" doesn't mean I enjoy reading it (unless it's CYOA or WWYFF).
I do NOT enjoy real person fiction. At. All. That means no Justin Beiber, One Direction, or anyone else.
