Fantastical Contest Entries Only-Review Requests


#1

Hi lovelies!

I wasn’t prepared for the amount of review requests I received. I do love reviewing stories but given my new schedule, I decided that I’m only reviewing stories that are entered into the Episode Contests.

So any genre is accepted but I do have some rules.

  1. Your story must be published on the platform

  2. Your story must be a contest entry so the title should be whatever Episode states

  3. I’m only reading the first episode simply because I want to give reviews back ASAP. My one read will NOT affect your ranking. It only matters if a ton of people stop reading past episode 1.

  4. I’m going to be publishing reviews regardless of their score both on the forum and on my instagram. If you have a low score, please don’t be discouraged. In most cases, it was a good idea that wasn’t executed to the best of its ability, in my opinion. I do not bash people. If it’s a story I absolutely can’t read then I’ll let you know.

  5. Following policy: My instagram is public, so if you’d like to follow me, you can.

  6. 2nd Review Request: Due to time constraints, I’m unable to review stories twice.

  7. I don’t evaluate cover art or special art as I feel that’s too subjective.

  8. I post the review here and on my Instagram page for published reviews only so please be ok with that when requesting a review. My Instagram page is @penspaperanddreams. If you want a shoutout, please include your Instagram.

  9. This post is only for the fantastical contest entries. After that contest ends, I’ll create another thread for the next contest. Please don’t ask for review requests outside of this contest.

Sorry about all the changes! This review structure won’t change :blush:

Visuals-I think that was done well. I enjoyed the use of overlays and backgrounds. There was a lot of customization so I think readers will enjoy that as well. (4/4)


Story: It is interesting but I didn’t feel that it was fantasy related at all which is the contest theme. So I felt a bit disappointed by that. That being said I really like how you dove right into the story and started it off with something shocking. Immediately engaged my interest. Definitely potential here. (2/4)


Choices- I feel like this was done well. Plenty of options, especially for a first chapter. (4/4)


Language- There weren’t any errors. (4/4)


Total score: 14/16

Visuals- I think the directing is perfect and I really think the limelight style compliments this story. It’s visually gorgeous. I would have liked to have had some fantasy element in the first chapter though.


Story- I enjoyed the premise and think the story is unique. I’m really interested to know more about their powers and how the fantasy side will manifest itself. The writing is strong and interesting and I felt myself immediately wanting to go to the next chapter.


Language- It’s a little stiff in some parts but otherwise engaging and without any major grammatical or spelling errors.


Choices- I think this was done quite well. I felt engaged.


Overall Score: 14/16
