If you know of any stories that deserve to be archived in the Reviews Lounge, Too Community, give us their details! Just because a certain fandom isn't represented in the archive doesn't mean we aren't interested. Let us know!

To qualify for archiving, the stories must be either:

1. Quality oneshots with less than 20 reviews; or

2. Quality chaptered stories with an average of less than 15 reviews per chapter

We're currently accepting stories of most fandoms. However, some stories might be held until I get a proper modding staff. I can't judge stories I'm not familiar with! Likewise, please do not post your own stories here! There is an appropriate topic to do so.


If you want to recommend a story, here's the new guidelines. It just makes it easy for us as mods to read the stories.




Length: (chapters/words)

Number of Reviews:

Title: Jacob's Tent Fantasy


Author: DazzledbyJake

Length: (chapters/words) one-shot / 1,513 words

Number of Reviews: 15

Character(s): Jacob Black/ Bella Swan (Edward Cullen also is there a little but he's sitting off to the side reading Jacob's thoughts)

Summary: Jacob's POV of the tent scene in Eclipse.

Note from me: This story is rated M and for a reason. The author acutally has this at the beginning of the story WARNING: This is very explicit! So if you don't mind reading that sort of thing and you like Jacob this is a good read. I found my self laughing while amazed at how well the author captured Jacob's point of view

Note from me: This is an excellent character sketch of Emily.

Story: Trick or Treat or Severus Snape's Halloween

Fandom: Harry Potter

Author: toroj

Number of reviews: 0!

Characters: Snape, OC

Summary: well, the title pretty much covers it... it's funny, and has a really great OC!


Hey, I really hope some reviews will make her write more. Or at least translate next parts of the story... It's worth reading. And I see Polish section slowly degrade to a sad place where people only put things translated from English. If I could write, I'd counter it myself, but unfortunately - no talent at all... So please please me and one of the best authors? :)

Chudeuz and Marbles -- those were great recs to the archive, but neither of you reviewed the stories you recommended! (Marbles, you did review the second, but not the first!)

The point of the archive is to encourage reviewing, and once ya'll review them, I will add the stories!

Thanks for the recs! =)

I have a question. What about ratings? I know a few really good ones, but their all rated M, (one in particular for very good reason). Is that a problem? Also, one of them, the guy has a couple grammatical error's, but overall the story is GREAT. Would that be a problem?

I am slightly biased, becacuse I eta'd this, but don't let that put you off. I wouldn;t recommend anythign I didn;t think was good, and this is brilliant.

Title/Link: Aftershock

Fandom: Harry Potter

Author: DragonDi

Length: (chapters/words) One chapter posted so far. I think there will be twelve in total.

Number of Reviews: 6

Character(s): Remus Lupin chiefly. Also the other Marauders, Alastor Moody

Summary: The betrayal of one friend and the deaths of the three others leave Remus Lupin to deal with Aurors, reporters, and his own emotions. A sort of prequel to 'Carnival of Dark and Dangerous Creatures.'

Carnival of Dark and Dangerous Creatures is also highly recommended. Di writes the best remus Lupin and the best Moody I have ever read.

Number of Reviews: 198 (which is only about three per chapter :/ )

Summary: The Weasley twins hone their troublemaking talents with the help of a feisty muggle girl from the village, Annie Jones. Their friendship slowly grows into something more as teens, when George and Annie discover an attraction to each other they can't resist. ---- Don't let the Mary Sue sounding summary put you off it. Her development is fabulous, and so is the characterization of the twins. Funny and deep and heartwarming all :-)

In regards to ratings...

Right now stories that have graphic sex scenes are not being accepted into the archive. Stories that are rated M for language or violence are currently being considered on a case-by-case basis and may or may not be included at the discretion of the moderators.

In regards to grammatical errors...

Grammar does play a role in determining the quality of the story; that being said, if the grammatical errors do not detract too much from the story, and the rest of the story is still good, then it can be added. Basically, like mature-rated stories, grammatical errors are considered on a case-by-case basis. When it doubt, recommend it!
