  • Mehek's Free Honest Reviews

    Hey y'all!

    If you don't know me, I'm Mehek, an older forumer, and I decided that I'd create a review thread to help new authors and older ones alike to get reads and feedback since I'm trying to get back into Episode and looking for some unique User Stories to read!

    No matter whether you're one of my closest forum friends or someone I've never met before, I promise to be 100% honest about what I think of your story and I'll try to be super detailed, but no promises. How much of your story I read depends on what I think of it- I'll read at least one episode and if I like it or think I need to read on to give you an accurate review, I will. I don't require or recommend that you read my story, so I'm not leaving the link, but if you're really really curious, my Episode profile name is Mehek, you'll find it there.

    So how do you get one of these free honest reviews? Fill out the form below! I'll be taking five reviews on at a time and have a post below with the five slots. Once they're full, I won't be taking any more requests for reviews until I'm through with those five. The reason why is this allows me to open and close this thread according to my schedule.

    But anyway, without further ado...the form to fill out for a review!:

                Hi there!
                First of all I think this is a very nice idea of you!
                Second, I'd like to share my first (and only) story with you. I've not been able to write or work on it for a few months now because I had personal life events going on...
                Since writing is my passion, I decided to start revamping the 5 episodes the story has at this point. (It really helps to check every episode again after months, I'm very critic so I saw 100 things that could've been better. (Maybe that's why it takes me so long to just revamp 1 episode...) So I really know there'll be little errors (grammatical (I'm from Belgium) and the directing)...
                As soon as I'm able to republish episode 1-5, I'll also release episode 6 and a brand new story cover (see attachment and don't expect too much...).
                It would be nice if you'd take the time to read my story, when you're ready with the other ones on your list, of course.

                Please, take your time!

                And I'll hand you my instagram (alphan.episode) in case you've something else to say, I react faster there because I never use the forums site on my phone...

                        Review slots for batch one are FULL guys!

                        Since I guess didn't make it clear in the rules, I'll still do the people who posted after batch 1 was filled, but next time, I will NOT do anyone who posts while a batch is full. I have ONE slot left for Review batch 2, and I'll be posting who has slots in batch 2 below, though I won't be doing them until I'm through with batch 1.

                          Review 1: My Ex's Wedding by Solete

                          First Impression (when I literally looked at the story in-app): "I really hope this doesn't turn out to be one of those cliche stories...Oh wait it's under Comedy? And that cover seems pretty cool- this definitely has some potential!"

                          Keep in mind for this review, I only read the second episode in order to get it to you as soon as possible.


                          1) Your directing is ON POINT girl/boy/gender neutral human being! That beginning zoom definitely caught my attention and the fact that you had non-static background extras and your zoom on Megan and the overlay over John? Absolutely engaging.

                          2) I like the storyline so far! It's funny, well-done, and at least so far, despite a few cliches, it seems kinda unique, and the little cliches aren't a bad thing- occasionally, even me, the cliche-hater, loves a well-done one as much as the next person.

                          3) For the most part, your grammar and spelling is excellent. I'm reallyyyyy particular about grammar, and for the most part, it's perfect.

                          Negatives: Keep in mind this is mostly really nitpicky stuff because I'm a really pedantic person.

                          1) That part at the beginning where Cara was running around her apartment when she saw the invitation felt really weird and out of place to me.

                          2) This is really, REALLY minor, but the font you use for the wedding invitation is a little bit difficult to read.

                          3) This isn't a full negative per se, but I think it'd be a good idea if you could make it clear from the beginning that Carlos is her best friend, because just about until the school flashback I was like "boyfriend?? brother??" and clarifying it somehow would definitely have made it more interesting.

                          4) Minor grammar error- Cara says she has "a poop" on her shoe at some point, I think it'd just be "poop"

                          5) Cara as a person is a bit immature for a grown woman. I've only read two episodes, and she might mature as a person by the end, I don't know, but she should have some sense of discipline at the start at least in my opinion, even if she is supposed to be this fun, wild, maybe-a-bit-crazy character. It's a bit unrealistic that she has a job with her attitude and that someone with more power than her boss authorizes it. Again, I've only read two episodes which probably isn't enough to judge the future of this story, but I think character development is something you need to make sure to incorporate in most of your characters.

                          Final Verdict: Will I be reading on? At some point, yes. It's funny, and I want to see how it turns out, and you've done a good job with it overall. Based on some of Carlos' internal monologues, I sincerely hope it doesn't end in a predictable way, but based on other little story clues, I see the possibilities of this ending in a way nobody would expect. I'd rate your story an 8/10.

                          That sounds great! I always try to get as many people as possible to review my story because everyone has a different opinion and may notice something that others don't.
                          So... without further ado....
