      I am pretty happy with “Sound of Silence” for the Diversity Challenge. Need to update Stand Tall before I try and write the wedding though.

      an interesting discovery in my review-writing syntax: I use proper grammar/capitalization until I start writing comments in parentheses, at which point all bets are off

      Hello.  Because of your criticism and open mind you've sparked an idea for me to start another story.  To focus on a backstory.  To try to show and tell with ties to chemistry.  Thank you in advance. I'm going to go back to plotting.  I like you.  You need to stay the way you are.

      Okay so regarding your love of Thranduil @Rumpelstiltskin, I just wanna throw out that even though he's barely mentioned in any of the books, I seriously love how Lee Pace () portrayed him in the Hobbit movies. Because he was beauty, he was grace, and he would definitely punch you in the face.  I think that one of my favorite things about LotR/The Hobbit is the complexity with which JRR Tolkien wrote each and every character. Smeagol/Gollum and even Sauron had some depth to their characters. This is something I think some contemporary authors have lost -- giving all or nearly all of their characters more than just one or two dimensions within the story. Yes Tolkien did like to sit on describing the scenery quite often, but he also had a lot of his characters talk for long periods of time with each other, which allowed for more of that characterization to shine through.  I think my favorite character of the Dwarves is Fili or Kili. They are the youngest and therefore the silliest and happy-go-lucky (ish) that they can be. But they also have very good skills and training for battles and support Thorin completely.  I just also love LotR so much but haven't had time lately to go back and re-read the books / re-watch the movies.

      Reason for Nomination: I so love this story! Bex captures all her characters so well, Remus and Clara are the two most adorable creatures in the world and the slow burn between them is so delightful (and frustrating, because you really want the two idiots to be happy, but that's only another statement of how good the story is  ) The writing, too, is lovely and I think Bex's choices to give the story a Northern England setting is paying off, because her descriptions feel just so authentic and I love the small details about her homeland she put in. It's just a wonderful read. Title: Hey, Rajwa

      Warnings [if applicable] : Eating Disorders, Suicide
      Reason for Nomination: This story depicts depression and the impact it has on a person's life so well, and so very very real. The style it was written in is also something I love about the story - getting to see how things progress over the years. It's heartbreaking but also a beautiful read.

      Would it be too much trouble if I grabbed a slot, Chiara? Story & Author Name: The Grass Is Greener on the Other Side (Or So They Say) [M] by Rynna Aurelia
      Warnings & Advisories: Swearing, brief/mentioned violence, discussion of child abuse (Nothing graphic).
      Genres: Angst, Action/Adventure, Family, Hurt/Comfort, Drama
      Length: 16 chapters, over 50K currently. (First couple chapters, for this request if it's convenient for you, then?)
      Ships: James Potter/Lily Evans, various minor ships (Mostly Neville/Hermione at the moment). 
      Summary: James and Lily are mysteriously resurrected during Halloween of Female!Harry's (Charlotte Potter) Fourth Year. From there, the aftereffects ripple throughout Hogwarts and the rest of the Wizarding World as a family tries to heal itself thirteen years later.
      Areas of Concern: Characterization, characterization, characterization. (Wow, try saying that three times fast...) I'm really worried that I'm writing everyone inconsistently, and if my pacing and plotting's alright. Additionally, any constructive criticism would be much appreciated, if you'd be willing.
