Okay, so I've noticed that this place is totally lacking a good reviewer, or just good reviews in general. So, I'm now taking it upon myself to start reviewing fanfics. I'll have a sign-up list that I'll update. I'll take five at a time right now, and when school slows down a little in the winter, I'll up the list to ten fics at a time. I'll update this first post as I clear out people's fics.

PLEASE CHECK THIS POST BEFORE SIGNING UP FOR A REVIEW!

1. Sapphire Persian -- Metamorphosis
2.Sapphire Persian -- The Ties that Bind
3.
4.
5.

The following is the template that I'll be using to "grade" the fanfic in question.

Mechanics
Basic Grammar: 10 points
Punctuation: 5 points
Sentence Variation: 5 points

20 possible points

General Writing

Creativity: 10 points
Word Choice: 5 points
Dialogue: 5 points
Character Portrayal: 5 points
Descriptions: 5 points

30 possible points

50 POSSIBLE POINTS

I'll paste that template in, and then show what you get out of 5 or 10 points, and then 20, 30, and 50 points.

What do all of those things mean? Glad you asked!!

Basic Grammar: Things like subject/verb agreement, avoiding fragments and run-ons, proper spelling, using adjective and adverbs correctly, etc.

Punctuation: Proper use of periods, question marks, exclamation points, commas, colons, semi-colons, spacing, quotation marks, parenthesis, underlines, bolds, and italics.

Sentence Variation: Using different lengths of sentences, keeping the pattern smooth, adding different phrases and clauses…

Creativity: Using new and exciting characters and situations, creating original settings, characters, or perhaps even Pokemon!

Word Choice: Using exciting and well-thought-on words to accurately depict settings, characters, events, actions, and thoughts.

Dialogue: Using exciting dialogue that fits the character talking and differs with emotions.

Character Portrayal: How you introduce a character and his/her attributes, whether they stay in-character, and if you are using cannon characters, if THEY stay in-character.

Description: How well and often you describe people, events, places, actions, and thoughts.

So, sign up, and I'll review!

Okay, well, I reviewed evilmetal2004's fic. I'm not going to bite, people. Come on. If you'd like a good review of your fic, more than just the two/three lines most people who read it gives, sign-up. I promise to work hard on the review!

Your that eager to review, eh? Well, I wouldn't mind a good review for Metamorphosis (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=65490).

It's not too long, as the story's not finished, but if length somehow or other steers you away I'm always eager to receive reviews for this one-shot The Ties that Bind (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=59975)

Take your pick of either, and take your time.

Well, if you're really that eager to review, I'd love if you could take a look at Vanishing Point (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=73864) for me.
