Staff Review Thread

Welcome to the Staff Review Thread!

This review thread will be run jointly by all current staff.  We'll take turns filling review requests that you post here.  Come on in and don't be shy! :D

  • Story must be posted on the HPFT Archives.
  • Three slots open at a time.  We'll skip you if you post when we're full!
  • We'll read anything, though be warned we may not be familiar with all fandoms!
  • One chapter at a time, though if it's super-short like a drabble, you can request multiple chapters up to a total word count of 500 words.
  • Any story length is fine, but because this thread will be run by multiple people, it can be hard to jump into the middle of a story.  We'll do our best!
    • You may indicate a preference for a particular staffer to fulfill your request, but we can't guarantee that's who will review.

You can use this form to post your request.  At the very least, we will need the chapter link!

Quote

I wish I may, I wish I might, have the strength, to cut him out of my life.
 


Advisories: None
Genre: Original Fiction
Main Characters: Original Female Character
Ships: None
Areas of Concern: This was written for the Grand Opening Drabble challenge and I'd love to write more short pieces like this, I basically would like general thoughts and first impressions on the relatability of the piece. It was inspired by a personal experience that I went through so I want to know if people can relate to it and how believable the piece is.
Preferred Staffer (if applicable): No preference but Branwen reviewed this when it was first validated.

Hello wonderful people. I haven't really been on HPFT much despite signing up over a year ago - life has been uber-busy- but I now have time to come on here a lot more and I can't wait. I have done some edits to a story that was on hpff back in the old days.

Link to chapter: http://archive.hpfanfictalk.com/viewstory.php?sid=1101&chapter=1

Word count: 6652 

Summary: It is 1976. Aurora Jane Meadows, buccaneering curse-breaking witch, returns home from the South China sea after hearing news of the death of her brother. Finding her country under a cloud of fear, gripped in the chaos of an emerging dark wizard known only as "You-Know-Who", she takes on the Ministry to discover the truth. 

Advisories: Sexual Assault, Sexual Content, Slavery, Spoilers, Substance Abuse, Suicide, Violence

* I know that number of advisories makes it sound really grim but it is all the advisories for the whole story. The first chapter only really has violence as one of the advisories. 

General Feedback: It feels too long, even after an edit, and too bogged down in exposition, does it drag at all? If so -where? 

Genre: Dark Horror/Mystery

Preferred Staffer: I have no real preference as I respect and value all the staffers on here immensely. Though if possible someone who didn't read this story on HPFF before I made changes would be best.

I THINK there is a spot open, but if I'm reading things wrong, please just ignore me.  And for the record, this is the most amazing idea ever.

Gonna request for my Merlin story, but if no one on staff wants to jump in and read that, I'll be happy with a review on anything on my page.

Link to Chapter(s):http://archive.hpfanfictalk.com/viewstory.php?sid=1233 (M)
Word Count:First chapter is 1658 words. Fic total is 2956.
Summary:Kidnapped by a mad king, Arthur and Merlin must rely on each other like never before.  While Arthur struggles with choices that put his heart and duty at odds, Merlin struggles just to stay alive after being stripped of his magic and freedom. With impossible choices and heavy secrets weighing them down, can they manage to escape before all is lost? (Lots of bromance.)
Advisories:Domestic Abuse, Slavery, Violence
Genre:Action/Adventture, Angst, Hurt/Comfort
Main Characters: Merlin, Arthur Ships: Arthur/Gwen
Areas of Concern: I really just want to know what people think of it.
Preferred Staffer (if applicable): I love you all.
