Critical Story Reviews [OPEN]🌿

requests

#1

Hey babes! I’m giving out critical reviews. Below this is everything you’ll need to know :slight_smile:

Rules: -Please, please, please don’t ask for more than 3 reviews at a time, making reviews take a long time to write + actually reading the story.
-Don’t request two stories at once. I’ll just pick which one I’d like to read (unless I’m feeling really energetic and feel like reading both - this is a rare occasion, don’t get your hopes up).
-If you don’t add the password your request will be ignored.
-If you don’t have a cover yet just add that in the form where the cover should be.
-I will read just 1 or 2 episodes of your story.
-Do not rush me I have a life outside of episode.

I’ll be ranking you by four categories: Directing, Characters, Choices, Plot + Cover (this adds an extra 5) Each will be out of 10 - excluding the cover- adding up to 45 in total.

5-10: You really need to improve, a lot can be fixed.
11-20: Some improvement can be made but it is not all bad.
21-30: Slight improvement could be added here and there, but it’s really good.
31-40: Very interesting and really grabs your attention. Only small improvements can be added. Very good overall.
41-45: The cover adds a good feel to the story.

@gisellec
Directing:
I loved the way you added background characters to bring the scene to life, at the hospital and at school with Gracie. You also used panning and one or two zooms.
8/10
Characters:
The characters are well developed especially the main character we play as and Christian since he’s mysterious. Maybe add a reason for Gracie to dislike the main character so it doesn’t seem like she’s just a plain bxtch.
7/10
Choices:
I also like the way you told us that choices matter and you used points to change the end of the story. I personally think that this is very hard to script by using all the points and gains.
10/10
Plot:
The plot seems very intestinal since it’s about Greek gods and such. It doesn’t seem any way cliche. I also like the custom characters since it helps the ready feel more into the story.
9/10
Cover:
I really like the cover since you include most of the main characters so we kinda know who the main characters are.
5/5

Overall:
I really like this story and I think only a little improvement can be made and it looks like you took a long time to write this. Keep up the good work!
39/45

Directing:
You used multiple pans and you added background characters which is really good. But you could have added some zooms here and there but I like the effort made.

8/10
Characters:
I know the main character is a self absorbed jerk but honestly she takes it way too far. If that’s what you’re going for then continue but I’d slightly tone it down a bit because it seems like she has an issue.

6/10
Choices:
There weren’t much choices just a clothes choice, what to say to a friend and what to do to the guy. When the story progresses I believe you’ll add more and it’s only the first episode anyway.

8/10
Plot:
The plot seems really interesting and will make readers think how will she get out of the different life she lives in now. It seems like another story I’ve read but I hope you’ll add a plot twist to make it more unique.
9/10
Cover:
I really like the cover it kinda shows her dominance and confidence in a way and it’s very well edited.

5/5
Overall:
This story is really good, just add a couple zooms and more choices. You’re doing well.
36/45

Directing:
Your directing is pretty amazing with all the overlays and everything. You didn’t use much zooms or pans but the way you moved the characters and used many overlays made up for that.

10/10
Characters:
The characters are very unique since they have their own super powers and have different personalities, which makes them all very interesting.
9/10
Choices:
There weren’t much choices, I can’t remember having any actually you can fix these in the coming episodes
4/10
Plot:
The plot I say very interesting and is very unique. It’s slightly similar to another story maybe it helped you get an idea but the memory wiping kinda made it steer away from that plot.
9/10
Cover:
The cover looks very visually friendly since it kinda shows who the main character is.

5/5
Overall:
I haven’t read much action stories but this is really good and the directing was very professionally done.
37/45
