I am considering on continuing this and making it into a full fledged story, but I need some criticism in my life before I decide I am capable. Also would like to ask if the line breaks are alright? Please, if you can, respond to that question within the review, thank you very much.

Number of current chapters: 1

Reason for request: I'm just looking to better my writing, need to make sure if everything's on the up and up. And your reviews give me the feedback I need since I want to take up writing as a partial profession in the future.

Notes/Special instructions (please write a short paragraph if you have any): Be honest. I need comment on plot, details, and storyline. If it works and if it doesn't. Along with the usual stuff, I need critique on those things the most.

PS: I understand if you refuse this request, seeing as how I've made two prior ones.

Author: HylianFishFood

Fandom: Percy Jackson and the Olympians

Rating: T

Genre/Type of story: Romance (note, it is a story about to guys being gay for each other, just in case that makes you uncomfortable)

to Number of current chapters: 2

Reason for request: I want to see if I'm being repetitive with word use, or transitioning weird with plot devices, or just doing anything weird and awful with my writing in general, particularly in Chapter 2.

Notes/Special instructions (please write a short paragraph if you have any): I know that the summary says it's a series of AUs, but the two chapters I have up right now are connected plot-wise, which is why I'm asking now instead of after I stray from that general plotline. If you want, you only really have to read the second chapter because that's the one I'm not completely confident in. Thank you!

After thinking this over for several days I decided to do an in-house review request for my most recent story.

Story Title: Maniac Cop: Unfinished Business

Fandom: Maniac Cop

Rating: M

Genre: Action/Horror.

Number of current chapters: One shot, complete.

Reason for request: My beta vanished and I couldn't find another one interested on this story. I really don't like to publish unbetaed work, so I spent a few days checking for mistakes before publishing. I'm sure I missed a few and I believe there are other details that may need work.

Notes/Special instructions: The franchise the story is based on is particularly obscure, which is the reason some background is provided in the story, but if the person doing the request has questions about the films the story works as a 'sequel' for, I can answer them.

Hi there!

Story Title (with link/url): Playing with fire

Author: Aiwyn

Fandom: World of Warcraft

Rating: M

Genre/Type of story: Drama/Romance

Number of current chapters: 5 (prologue plus 4)

Reason for request: As always, to improve. My beta has already reviewed it through and through endlessly (and still is) but I guess it is good to have a fresh mind with a totally different and new view over it. I'm aware of some of my weaknesses (like grammar) but I'm not sure I managed to fix all of it, so far. Oh, and in case you didn't notice, it's a WIP.

Notes/Special instructions (please write a short paragraph if you have any): Hazzah!

Genre/Type of story: Adventure/Humor

Number of current chapters: 3 (Currently working on Ch.4)

Reason for request: Mainly I just want to know how to make good fight scenes and if my writing style itself is good or if it needs a change.

Notes/Special instructions (please write a short paragraph if you have any): One: This story is not connected to the story of RvB. This is a AU. Though there are some shared elements. Two: I feel as though I have too much dialogue in my story. I'm currently writing with a different style, but I just want to know if this story needs improvement or not. I really need to know how to improve my fight scenes.

flamedwing

Story Title: Handbook to Turian Interactions: For Humans

Author: Me

Fandom: Mass Effect

Rating: T

Genre/Type of story: Gen, though it's more of a canon/head-canon treatise

Number of current chapters: 2

Reason for request: Long story short, I got a story follow from someone and I checked out their page like I do for anyone who favorites, follows or reviews my work. This individual had a bit of a rant on their profile page about your group and people reporting "violations". Basically, it made me wonder if they followed my story because they thought it was an example of a story that violates the rules. I'd like to make sure that I'm not breaking any rules that could get my work deleted.

Notes/Special instructions: I know my fic is a "non-story" in the sense that it's not about individual characters and doesn't follow a plot. However, it's wrapped in the premise of an in-universe "non-fiction" book. It's also a kind of supplementary to my other stories, which do have characters and plots. I have another "treatise" that's premised as a military intelligence report released by one of the in-universe factions, so I'd assume that if this story is problematic, that one must also be a problem. If so, any advice on how to fix it would be greatly appreciated.

Genre/Type of story: Romance and Drama

Number of current chapters: 1

Reason for request: This is my first FanFic so I am looking for some helpful feedback so I may improve. I want to know what is good and what needs work, preferably with suggestions on how to improve it.

Notes/Special instructions (please write a short paragraph if you have any): I have a very specific idea of where this plot is going to go. So I am not really looking for comment on the plots direction. I want to know if it makes sense to the reader, that is is easy to read. I want to know what may not be coming across or coming across as confusing. So that I may fix these things when I write the next chapters. I really just want some unbiased eyes looking over it and letting me know what they think.

Ms. Tea Cup

So glad to find a group of observers/reviewers in this forum! Here is my request. Sorry to bother, thanks a million before and after!

Story Title (with link/url): Mystery of Tsunayoshi chapt 8 (edit: BL warning)

Author: Ms. Tea Cup

Fandom: Katekyo Hitman Reborn

Rating:M

Genre/Type of story:Romance

Number of current chapters: 8 (but I want you to only check the 8th chapter)

Reason for request:

1. I've been worried since before posting the 8th chapter actually because the post resembles an a/n. I'm a fan of mystery stories and I was copying the style of one of my favorite author, Soji Shimada,'s work titled The Tokyo Zodiac Murder in which the author inserted a challenge note as a chapter right before the last chapter. My challenge letter in chapter 8 was meant to be a part of the story, like the one in The Tokyo Zodiac Murder, but I'm also afraid if it breaks the rules. Of course, I'm willing to delete or change it if its a violation.

2. None of my readers seems to care about these rules. I dont want my fic to be flagged suddenly or anything, so I'd rather have it checked now.

Notes/Special instructions (please write a short paragraph if you have any):

I hope I'm asking these at the right place. I'm quite a new writer, and I think the fanfiction.net's rules are very vague. But I believe you guys have reviewed a lot of fics in this site, therefore you're quite informed. So, some questions:

1. Could you explain me about the type of fics that you deem as violating the line between M rated and MA rated fic? How far could an M rated fic get to be wrongly labeled as M (and not MA) in fanfiction.net?

2. Is it acceptable to insert a song lyric in which my character is singing? For example: The man started counting down from three before he waved his hand in a dramatic manner. The boy then sang, "La mer... Qu'on voit danser le long des golfes clairs".

3. Is it acceptable in this site to insert a full song lyric in which the lyrics were used by a character to communicate to another character and not in a poet-like manner? Or am I only allowed to insert a small part of it?

Number of current chapters: 1

Reason for request: I'd like constructive criticism, and want to know anything I can do to help improve this, in terms of any story element. I feel as though the oneshot that I had written over a year ago looks horrible compared to how I write today, and I'd like to know anything I can do to improve it.

Notes/Special instructions (please write a short paragraph if you have any): This is a one shot between Rocket Raccoon and my OC, Sam. It's NOT an actual full fledged story.

Also: I'd like someone who does pretty well with romance. If you're not the best with romance, that's okay, but it's just a request if it's able to be fulfilled.

I can tell that the fics need improvement but can't exactly pinpoint what exactly it is that I should be tackling. The reviews I've received are always very nice and super encouraging, but don't really offer me any insight on what I'm doing right and wrong.
