    2. Take a screenshot that will prove that you've read my story (you don't have to read the whole of it if you don't want to. One episode is enough)

    Hey everyone!

    First of all, nice idea of making this topic!
    Second, I'd like to promote my story called Upside Down. It's my first story. I've not been able to write for a few months now because of personal events going on.
    But since writing is my passion, nowadays I'm revamping my story and after that I'll republish episode 1-5 and publish a new episode (6). Also the new cover (see attachment) will be introduced! I hope I'll get some reads! Would you like to read my story?
    If you see any mistakes, please let me know. I try to correct all during the revamp but I'm only human so I can still miss things...

    Title: Upside Down
    Author: Alphan
    Genre: Romance, Drama, Mystery
    No. of Episodes: 5 (ongoing)
    Story Description: June escaped her previous life. Will she meet people who will love her or will her old enemies destroy her again?

    Margaret A. Knox here's your review! It's based on the first three chapters.

    - PLOT
    I find your plot pretty interesting. You managed to make me wonder what is gonna happen in the next episodes and that's the key to making the readers continue reading your story.

    - CHARACTERS
    I love Adelyn! You managed to tell a lot about her without actually stating that she is this this and that. You showed us her character through her actions. I like that she's kinda down-to-earth, caring and creative.

    - DIRECTING
    All I can say is WOW! The beginning of the first chapter is so cool, can you teach me how to do such an animation?
    While the story is written in Spotlight, you still did a great job at directing your story. The intro looks good, your custom backrounds are very appealing.
    The only thing I found a bit confusing is that sometimes you use other anitmations instead of talking ones. It's completely alright to do so from time to time, but you seem to do this a lot. I personaly would've preferred to see more talking animations when characters are communicating with each other.

    - CHOICES
    Again, WOW! All the choices feel very meaningful and the majority of them actually does impact the storyline. I liked that when we make an important choice there're stars appearing. But maybe they should appear before the actual choice, and not after? Anyway, you do as you like, it's just me being me.
    There's only one choice I found useless - the one when we have to decide who Adelyne will sit with. It doesn't matter who we choose - we'll still sit with Aiden, right?

    - SPELLING & GRAMMAR
    I didn't notice any mistakes while reading. Great job!

    - ALL IN ALL IMPRESSION
    You've gained yourself a reader!
    I know you asked me to be harsh, but there's practically nothing I can be harsh about. I'm definitely going to keep reading your story because I found it very interesting and well worked out. As I understand, you're an experienced writer and it really shows through you story. Good luck with the contest, you have every chance at winning!

      Thanks so much for this review! I honestly am kinda conflicted with the talking vs. idle animations part. I was given the impression that Spotlight was supposed to utilize more idle animations rather than talking (kinda like the Choices app, if you're familiar with that). Also, with the stars thing, I meant the shift to a black and white filter to signify a major choice, and the stars to show that the choice will have consequences (kinda like Life is Strange). Still, thank you so much for reading. I really appreciate it.

    Castino here's your review! It's based on the first two chapters.

    - PLOT
    I can't say much about your plot as it's not 100 per cent clear to me, at least at this point of your story where I am. But you managed to build suspence, making readers wonder what is actually going on with the MC.

    - CHARACTERS
    I can't say anything about the characters. I wish you had given us a but more backround on the MC - maybe show us a day from her life before she was taking by the Demon?

    - DIRECTING
    Your direcing seemed somehow confusing. As I understand, you use spot directing and it looks like you don't specify the number of seconds in which the action is done. It makes the characters move abruptly - this looks awkward. Another thing is that you make backround go from the one the action takes place in to a black one. It was kind of strange.
    Also I felt like you use transtioins too much.

    - CHOICES
    There are no choices in the first two episodes aside from one outfit choice. That's not a good thing, I suggest you should add a couple of choices.

    - SPELLING & GRAMMAR
    I didn't notice many mistakes. Great job here!

    - ALL IN ALL IMPRESSION
    I have an impression that everything is a bit abrupt. I do wish we could have more knowledge about the MC just so that we could feel for her. I really didn't, to be honest. But even with that being said, I guess your story has a lot of potential. So keep working on it, keep improving. Try to add custom overlays and backrounds, for example. Good luck!

      Arina1998 Oh i didn't notice you've tagged me for days! Sorry.

      Thanks for your specific feedback. It means a lot for me to get an audience's perspective of my story. I know my story is not so fast on letting people know much about the background information of MC, that is my intent because the background is too complicated. Audiences can get to know everyone of the MC bit by bit as the story proceeding. I don't think it's good to throw out too much information in only first 2 chapters. Idk, maybe that is just my personal view.

      For the directing part, I didn't quite understand what you mean...could you please explain it more specifically? Did you mean the first scene at the beginning of chapter 1? If so, it is not a spot directing moving but because Ray is not human and can move instantly.

      I am really appreciated for all your words above, and am always trying to perfect my story by all means. : )

      Castino Well, not only Ray and other creatures move abruptly, but the MC as well. And she is a human, right?
      As for the MC’s background, I didn’t mean that you should throw out all the info at once. But at lease something besides the fact that she’s ‘ordinary’ would be good. Again, this may be my personal opinion, you do you.

      Arina1998 I still have no idea how that comes out...cuz I did pay attention to avoid abrupt movements and each movement had been added to specific time limit. If you could tell me the scene (if you still remember), I'd be more than thankful.

    Mona K Your review is ready. It’s based on the first three chapters.

    This time I decided to point out things I liked and didn’t like about your story.

    Positive aspects:

    + your use of transitions is quite interesting;

    + your directing, though needing lots of polishing, is more or less good.

    Negative aspects:

    - your English. Yes, I know you mentioned that your grammar is not good. And still, this fact didn’t let me enjoy your story. Really. It’s practically IMPOSSIBLE to understand what you mean because your grammar is messed up. Sentences don’t even make sense sometimes.

    - your story seems unrealistic. Like, very unrealistic. The MC is bullied by everyone. Everyone! Somebody even STEPPED ON HER! And nobody gives a damn about it! How is that possible? Teachers? Parents? Principal? Anyone?
    Sorry to say this, but it is unrealistic and inappropriate. I can’t believe that everyone at her school hates her for no reason.

    - you tried to give info on everyone (those four guys and three girls), yet there is practically nothing I found out about the MC besides the fact that everyone bullies her. I got bored when you started to tell about every single person from that group of popular guys.

    I don’t mean to be discouraging, but reading your story felt kinda… awkward. Sometimes I couldn’t understand what you wanted to say.
    Please, don’t be offended by what I’ve written here. These are only my thoughts about your story.
    I hope that you’ll manage to make your grammar better and write a good story on Episode.

      Arina1998 Thanks you so much for the feedback! Appreciate it very much! I'll hard try my best. I will change my grammar better in the episode because it's so hard to me. I add episode 4 and 5 chapters because it's denser and detail. I will make again revamp soon and later.
