Review the Person Above You

What the title says! Basically, you review the last person who posted in this thread and then post a reply linking a work you want reviewed. The next person reviews you and posts a link to their work, and on it happily goes.

To prevent unfortunate cases where you review someone, but someone else posts their request faster than you, you can reserve a spot with a post. However, you can't request a review until after you've reviewed the person above you.


- Review the person above you. Or else. If you don't, your post will be deleted.

- Play nice. That means no spam/one-liner reviews.

- If you reserve a post, don't take longer than a day to do the actual review.

What happens if someone doesn't follow the rules?

If you catch someone not following the rules, shoot one of us green folks a PM. We'll deal with that dratted rule-breaker and see that a review is sent the proper way. :)

This is my favorite thing.

Anyone up for poetry?

october comes too early.
Suppose for a moment that the heart has two heads, that the heart has been chained and dunked in a glass booth filled with river water. The heart is monologuing about hesitation and fulfillment while behind the red brocade the heart is drowning. - R.S

Okay, I reviewed! Unfortunately I don't know how to do the thing where you make the title of the work the link, so here is the link to my work:


It's only four lines, I hope you can actually find something to review about it! At least tell me how you felt about it...

I don't have anything to review. xP
I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living.

The Lord informed me that he has plans for me;
Plans for me to prosper, and not to fail.....
With this in mind, I embrace each day with
aspirations of being all that I can be in order

Dear, Serenity

Your piece is now reviewed. I absolutely love it, by the way!

From another traveler

Hey everyone! Please critique my work, Amber Rise, an Alfred Dorn sonnet. Sorry for the long intro. It's a story actually, so, read the other chapters too!

Again, it's Amber Rise, in Lyrical Poetry!
Need some feed? Then read some! Take a look at today's Squills at In the News.
