I'm starting this thread out of love for reviewing and abhorrence of boredom. I'm Button - call me that - and I will be happy to review your work.

What I like-

    Genres: science fiction, historical, general
    Themes: (modern) war, (modern) underworld, anything dark, anything eccentric, science, family
    Types: poetry, short stories, art/photography

What I can't handle and will probably make a mess of if you ask me to review-

    Genres: romance. This reviewer does not know much about judging feelings. Machines are better.
    Themes: romance, violence, profanity
    Types: lyrics, scripts

What I will allow (conditions apply)-

    Genres: fantasy. I'm so sorry I can't handle too many elves or fairies. Particularly if there is a feud of some kind in the plot.
    Themes: young-adult, hurt/comfort, angst
    Types: novels

I don't nitpick. I will tell you what I liked, as a reader. I can point out cliched parts of the storyline, and where it sounds odd to me, and which parts were brilliant. I will recommend steps for improving your work, and if you need help with building the story, I can provide that too. Well, a little.

I hope to be able to start reviewing soon! Give me a week after asking for the review. If I cannot make it, I will apologize and try to write it as soon as possible. But a week should be enough. :)
Remember when the platform was sliding into the fire pit and I said, "Goodbye!" and you were like "NO WAY." and then I was all, "We pretended we were going to murder you."
That was great.

Thanks, Oliver

For in everything it is no easy task to find the middle ... anyone can get angry—that is easy—or give or spend money; but to do this to the right person, to the right extent, at the right time, with the right motive, and in the right way, that is not for everyone, nor is it easy; wherefore goodness is both rare and laudable and noble.
— Aristotle
