how do you view your reviews from stries you have uploaded

3/23/2012 #362

Apart from looking at them in the published stories themselves you can see them in:

Sign In - Traffic Stats - Legacy Story Stats

There's a Reviews column you can click the values to see the reviews.

[EDIT another way is to click the word Reviews against all your stories on your profile page.]

Title: A Father Figure

Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6255211/1/A_Father_Figure

Fandom: Harry Potter

Rating: T-M

Summary: (Severitus: eventual mentor/guardian relationship) Basically Headmaster Dumbledore asks Professor Snape to teach harry occlumency and potion lessons in the summer after Harry's fifth year. Snape naturally finds out about Harry's home life and acts as a guide and teacher.

Help: My first chapter is more or less dialogue of two characters being voiced. To develop this chapter into something more, i need constructive feedback and descriptions. I also need to balance description and dialogue - in other words i need to make my chapter more longer and descriptive. Would you be able to help me?

(i sent many messages to betas, but they never replied, so i'm posting here)

3/28/2012 #365

Darklight-phoenix: This is not really the kind of story I like but since it is so short so far I gave it a quick once over. I'm sure you know that you have both Harry and Snape's relationship completely out of character from the start. In the books they loathe and despise one another and both would rather choke than be on a first name basis even by the end of the summer let alone the start plus Snape is obliged to be nasty to Potter anyway to keep up an appearance for anyone who might report back to Voldemort. That's OK. It's your story. Just saying, any thinking reader would find this rapid change too unbelievable to take seriously. At best, I'd go for a scathing mutual hatred and maybe reach a hint of grudging respect by the end of summer.

You have captured some of Snape's abruptness; that feels more real. He just is not a very symphathetic person and he will not be moved at all by the hardships that Harry has endured. Two years of therapy might change him slightly but not two minutes at the Dursleys' - no chance. Instead, I'd make Snape's observations more subtle - to soak in over the months afterwards. Just hint that Snape might have a sliver of heart somewhere within him and let the readers draw their own conclusions:

'Snape's eyes narrowed slightly as she said the word 'freak' and when he saw the locks, bolts, and cat flap on Harry's bedroom door he hesitated thoughtfully.'

The grammar, phrasing, writing style, flow, pace, etc. is reasonable. There are a few mis-spellings, etc. but nothing drastic. Yes, as you say, it needs more narrative and description to balance it out. In particular you need to set the scene right at the start where we are in a complete void. Where are they? How did they get there? What are they doing and how do their feelings show? No need to always go into lengthy descriptions; just work in a few words of description bit by bit:

'Harry reluctantly stomped along beside his potions master down the long boulevard wondering how he was going to endure this summer. He was so annoyed he hardly noticed the pleasant, leafy trees and the cool, shady walkways.' etc.

You see in a couple of sentences the reader has an idea of the area plus Harry's feelings plus we know they are walking not waiting or working on something, plus it helps to introduce the white manor which otherwise is a bit abrupt if you are expecting a run-down red-brick, terraced house.

Go back to the books and read a section and let it influence you; JKR did not dwell too much on long descriptions but kept it simple mostly and saved the longer descriptive paragraphs for occasional use. Both are good but need balancing out. Ten minutes soaking up her style before your writing sessions may help. If you don't have the books then google for eg, potter extracts from books

If unsure, don't hesitate to rewrite phrases, sentences, and paragraphs again and again in different ways if necessary until you feel you are happy with them.

Hope that helps a little bit anyway. Good luck - and remember - it's your story so it can be what you want it to be.

Title:Unforeseen Consequences


Fandom: Crossover of Halo/Half Life/ Portal



A hyper lethal super soldier. A sarcastic android with a science obsession. A renowned Black Mesa physicist. A mute test subject with unwavering resillience. What do they have in common? They've all accepted a "job". AU.

Help:(what you want help with, which bits you're unsure of, why you want constructive criticism, etc.): First off, I'm not sure of how to portray Gordon Freeman and Chell, and if I'm doing GLaDOS correctly. Chell and Freeman never speak in game. No supporting novels or videos. Plus I can't be sure if GLaDOS is a little OOC or not. Along with that, I've recieved only 2 reviews that even resemble something like constructive comment. So it would be really appreciated if you guys could take a look and comment.

Title: A Darker Hero

Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5854178/1/bA_b_bDarker_b_bHero_b

Fandom: My story will include numerous different ones and I really don't want to ruin the ones still not mentioned within the story. The two currently mentioned are Bleach and Naruto. (Sorry if it's not helpful enough but I really don't want to ruin the surprises)

Rating: Currently rated teen. Contains some mentions of blood, not too graphic but not too light. Also contains some sexual references and sexual innuendos.

Summary: This may take awhile but I'll try to shorten as much as possible.

A teen (the main OC) with a mysterious past is hurled into a confusing and dangerous situation as he is flung into a strange world when his city is attacked by unknown assailants. Finding himself in none other than Karakura, the teen managed to find a place with Orihime, after much skirmishing with Tatsuki of course. Soon after, he strikes a deal with Urahara for training in exchange for doing chores around the shop. Though he has no Zanpakuto, Urahara sees it deep within him although the shopkeeper is also confused as in why a non-Shinigami would have one. A few days past as the teen trains only slightly until he receives his own blade.

After an attack from Orihime's brother's Hollow, the teen attempts to protect his new home and host but ends up severely injured instead and must rely on Ichigo to finish the fight. In the aftermath, after agreeing to protect Orihime in her brother's stead, the teen finally receives his sword. Intense training follows for the next number of days. Though unbeknownst to the teen, Uryu had started his challenge against Ichigo and had sucked him into participating as Hollows swarmed him and the town. Wanting to protect the two girls who had given him shelter, the teen heads to the school grounds to find them. After dispatching a couple of weak Hollows, the teen is confronted with a strange woman (another OC), who he spares in order to seek answers from.

Learning from the woman that he is what is called an "Elemental," the woman also mentions that he should continue running as the attackers from his city most likely were looking for him. Teaching him to open portals using the powers granted to Elementals, the teen says his final good-byes before departing using this new technique. In this new world, he meets a pervert (yet another OC) peeping on a hot springs resort from a tree over looking the resort. After the branch gives out, both fall and roll towards the resort where they are forced into defending it from rogue ninja. Though both are thanked for their bravery in defending the little resort, they are forced to leave early as the pervert is caught peeping. A young girl (not an OC, actually Karin from Naruto Shippuden when she was young, aka during the time of the original Naruto) approaches them and strong arms them into taking her along by holding their clothes and possession ransom.

Finding a bounty (also an OC) in the local village, the trio heads off to locate them using Karin's tracking abilities. After defeating and killing the bounty, the ragtag team tries to claim the bounty only to learn that Konoha had claimed the bounty and were set to return in a few days. Though disappointed over this news, the village agrees to replenish their supplies and treat the injuries they obtained during their fight with the bounty.

Help: Ok, so I'm not as unlucky as some of the authors that get zero reviews and I'm not ungrateful for the reviews I have gotten, but I do want some more and more specific constructive criticisms. The reviewers so far have mentioned the missing words and grammar in the earlier chapters and I'm working on revising. What I really want to know is perhaps some flaws in my plot, or maybe the "Mary-sue"ness of a OC and also how content they are so far, anything to be more general. I also want some advice on attracting new readers and reviewers, although I do get a decent amount of readers for each new chapter, about 10-20. But I want a bit more, so thank you all who are willing to help in advance!

Rating:T (for cursing)

Summary:This a story about an OC who just started to love One Piece and got transported to the anime badly enough his character is not the type who like to go trough pain or doing something that could endanger his life for that matter.

Fandom:Fantastic Four/Avengers

Rating: T

Summary:Reality is a typical girl living in Brooklyn-until she recieves powers on an ill-fated space flight. Now the bad guys want to get rid of her. Some more so than others...

Help:I don't know if the final battle lives up to what you think it would be like. Plus I have 0 reviews for all my stories, so I have no idea if people like them. Reality will eventually be put in a novel I'm writing, so any help will be greatly appreciated.

Here's an exercpt:

By now I am accustomed to pain, so I do not scream as loud as I had the first few times. Remembering the chart, Contagion is giving me faster reflexes and better physical endurance. Each operation lasts a little longer than the last, because Contagion has to keep giving me blood transfusions. After a couple of hours, the henchman carries me back to the upright chair. After hooking me back in, he leaves the room.

I quickly seize the opportunity and flex my fingers. I have not used my powers since my abduction, which was more than a few weeks ago, so using them will most likely drain me more than usual. I glance at the door and listen for any footsteps. Hearing none, I create a two-way camcorder. The flap that comes out of the side shows me the rooms my face is being broadcasted to. I only have enough strength to broadcast to two buildings, so I choose the Baxter Building and school. Everybody will be watching the playoffs, so that channel will be the best choice. I hit the on button and begin my announcement.

"Listen, if anybody knows the Baxter Building's phone number, call it and let the Fantastic Four know where I am," I start, out of breath. I notice the shocked looks on everybody's faces. My appearance must surprise them. My face, hair, and arms are coated in blood. My mask and costume are torn and are also covered with my body fluid. The midnight blue of my top and the blood red of my cape turn even darker. The trauma of the surgery and my hazy mind make my voice sound cracked. My bloodshot eyes practically shout, "I'm freaking out! Save me!" I continue, "Tell them they're hiding me in a shack near the New York border. They're giving me other hero's powers to make me a killing machine. They said they wanted a person with a strong enough mind, and that person is me. They give me drugs and almost bleed me to death. I'm scared. Please, save me! I'm dying! Please, help-" I cut off before I finish. The strain becomes too much, and I faint.

Summary: Waking up in an abandoned room with no recollection of his former self, Troy Bolton vows to find out who he is—even if that knowledge kills him. What he discovers is more than he ever bargained for as he is thrown into a world full of drugs, sex, and death. How will he ever escape when 'escaping' is nowhere close to being an option? TROYELLA.

Help: I mostly need help with just scene change and character development. And I also want to know why I'm not getting reviews. Is it because it's absolutely boring or because it's an AU? If anything, I'd rather get PMs rather than forum replies if that's alright with everyone. I just want to know what I'm doing wrong since I've gotten hardly anything in the past couple of days and I'm feeling very discouraged with continuing this.

Title: Abducted!

Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7977162/1/Abducted

Fandom: Dragon Ball Z

Rating: M for language and sexual themes. It has a bit of citrus; I, personally, wouldn't consider it too graphic.

Summary: Drama/Humour/Romace; I posted a summary: "Bulma gets abducted aboard Frieza's ship and has to spend the night with the uptight Prince Vegeta. This turns out to be a lot more troublesome for Vegeta and a lot more entertaining for Bulma. Someone will get their way by the end of the night. pre-DBZ"

It's set about 5 years before Dragon Ball Z takes place. Bulma's abducted to become one of the temporary mistresses for the crew members. Vegeta gets first pick out of the harem because of his royalty, but rarely picks anyone due to lack of interest in sex. Bulma wants to see the ship while she's there and Vegeta just wants to get the night over with. They both get more than anticipated.

Help: I'm pretty much done, but I need some pointers as to how the story flows or should flow. I'm new to this particular fandom, but I feel like no one's too OOC. Some have noted that Vegeta seems a little too soft though. I also feel that as I've grown older and grown used to social networking, my grammar has actually gotten worse.

Maybe I need some help with the story's structure and characterization, but I think the plot is fine... I'm not really good with elaborating detail either.

Your help is much appreciated!
