Updated 8/20/17

I am taking requests again!

So I figured it was about time I made one of these. Mea here for all your review requests!

I'm willing to review pretty much anything.

Things I will review:
-Short stories
-Poems
-Chapters*
-Scripts
-Essays
-Lyrics

*I will review ANY novel chapters. That's right - you got that chapter 36 that's been sitting in the Green Room for three months? Bring it to me, I'll review it. Only caveat is you take the review as-is - I will not go back and read the rest of the novel, I just don't have time for that. I'll do my best with what I'm given in the chapter. You're welcome to provide a bit of a plot summary in the request if you want me to know what's going on. Also, the conditions below still apply.

Note: I will only take requests for up to three chapters at a time. If you want me to read your whole story, PM me and we'll talk.

Things I will not review:
-Anything with an excessive amount of swearing or mature content (I don't mind violence, but I dislike sex scenes.) If you really want me to review something with that, post here anyway and I'll consider it and get back to you.

-Anything with more than 4-5 good reviews on it.

Guarantees:
-It will be at least 1000 characters long, and usually significantly longer. Only exceptions would be if the piece is really, really short or if I think it's absolutely perfect. (A rare exception.) I tend to focus on the bigger picture rather than the nitpicks, unless I can't find anything else to comment on.

-If there's something in particular you want me to comment on, tell me in your post and I'll make sure to include a section on that.

-It will be done within three days of your request date. If for some reason I won't be able to make that, I'll let you know and get it done as soon as I can.

Harshness
I call it like I see it, but I won't be mean about it and I'll always offer suggestions on how to improve. I'm really just not very good at sugarcoating - I'll never try to tear anyone down. I'll tell you if I loved it, but if I hated it I'll still try to give an impartial review. If you want me to be more/less harsh, just mention it in the request.

Just post a link to your work below!

Done!

NOTICE:

I will have pretty much no internet access from June 6 to June 14.

Feel free to request reviews during that time, but I will not see them until I get back. Once I get back, they will be done within the week.

@Stormcrow

Please read the first post. I will not review works that have at least 4 good reviews, and I will not review later chapters of novels. At least one of these applies to all the works you have requested.

Prologue - has a whopping 13 reviews. (That's seriously impressive, actually. XD)

Chapter 1 - has 7 reviews

Chapter 2 - has 5 reviews

Chapter 3 - has 4 reviews

Chapters 22, 24, and 25 - later chapters


However, I will still review your chapter 3, since it is the one that comes the closest to qualifying. Please follow the rules in the future. Expect your review in the next couple of days. :)

@Meandbooks, I read one of your reviews and you mentioned you're looking for things to, well, review.

I have requested a review from you before. If you're unable to accept this request for any reason, let me know!

You can choose from one of these. It's up to you. I'd like you to focus on the characters, plot (optional), and descriptions.

1. Ruthless Killer | Unedited
2. The Real Courage | Edited
3. The Failure | Unedited

Thank you! :D
