I mostly read and write semi-hard science fiction shorts and creepy pasta, but I can review pretty much any genre of short story.
If you've got a chapter of a novel I can review that too, just expect far more technical comments than content based ones.

My knowledge of poetry and music are < 0, so asking me to critique your poem/song isn't exactly a good idea. I'll do it, but I can only give you my impressions of it, and the loosest wording suggestions.

Before asking me to review your piece, there are some things you should know.
1. I am not tactful.
2. I am not nice.
3. I don't care about making you feel good about yourself.
4. I don't like most of the things I read, don't take that as a reflection on you, it's just the way I am. If you want someone to gush over your every word go somewhere else.

That being said:
5. I always try to be fair.
6. I'm not trying to make you feel bad about yourself
7. If you have any questions about why I said what I did, I'm always around. Just shoot me a PM or a chat request.

I am a mostly serious person in need of a mostly serious review. :)

So if you have time, mostly serious reviewer, I would appreciate it if you would look at my piece: work.php?id=97470

It is chapter four of my novel, but it's in the same folder as the rest, in case you should need some background.

Thanks,

~Shady

Hey there, could you check out the third chapter of my novel for me?

work.php?id=97475

I know I'm being a pain by asking you to read the third chapter, but it should be relatively easy to follow and if you need any help understanding it, you can glance over the previous chapters or simply ask me about it.

Please and thank you!
I didn't know what to put here so I put this.

Hello! I was hoping you could review the first section of my piece Cesura?

I will most definitely return the favor if you wish, thanks so much.

Hey! May I please request a review on the short story below? It is for a competition, so a good dose of saying exactly what you think is exactly what I need at the moment.

Could you review this please?
The Adventures of Conrad
Please focus more on the content, not the grammar. I don't get insulted easily so if it's terrible please tell me that.
thank you!
