RonsGirlFriday's reviews

Recommended Posts

RonsGirlFriday

I'd like to spread some love and discover new fics! If you're looking for con crit, I can do that, and that includes reviewing for technical skills, if that's your concern. That said, I'm overwhelmingly positive in my reviews because your work is your baby and life is hard enough without being stressed out over something that's supposed to be fun. If you don't have any particular areas of concern and generally want someone to read your fic and leave some squees and words of encouragement, I'm here for you.

 

Rules:

  • HP or OF (Fantastic Beasts is ok, too!)
  • HPFT/ AO3/ FFN all okay. I will cross-post my reviews to multiple sites if you'd like! Let me know if you want me to do that, and provide links to your fic on the requested sites.
  • 2 slots open at a time. I should get to your review within 2 weeks of your request - if I don't, please message me to poke me!
  • One chapter per request. Please feel free to re-request for subsequent chapters, but to be honest, I may end up just reading and reviewing other chapters on my own if I'm digging your story and I have the time. :read: 

 

Preferences:

  • I'm open to a lot, but if I look at your fic and for some reason think I'm not the best person you could have reviewing it, I'll PM you and let you know.
  • All genres. Fluff, humor, and romance are good for the heart and soul, but I also love a good heartache, whether it's romantic or not. I love fics that expand on JKR's world-building, e.g. exploring different wizarding places and professions. I like complicated characters and themes. Moral ambiguity is a-okay with me.
  • Canon compliant or canon adjacent (by which I mean, things that are canon but with a little twist, or things that are simply not addressed in canon and so inhabit canon-neutral territory).
  • I love inane humor. This is where I'm okay getting canon divergent. Throw a good farce my way, break the fourth wall, please make me laugh.

 

Dislikes/avoid:

  • Really involved AU fics, like something that drastically changes the events of the series. I'm sure they're fantastic, but I just don't have the mental hard drive capacity currently to process it meaningfully. A "what if" one-shot is fine, but a retelling of the series where Harry is in Slytherin is not for me.
  • Dramione. Or really any pairing where they're shipped with someone they've previously treated like garbage related to blood purity issues. I'm sorry, guys. I hold no judgment for you as a writer, I just think I'm not the right person to give you a meaningful review on that ship. 
  • Cross-generational romance.
  • Cursed Child. I haven't seen nor read it, so I won't understand it.

 

What about smut?

Look. I know how it works, I don't need the manual. I'm a big fan of closing the door. That said, I'm not averse to sexual content and humor. I just generally don't read fics that verge on erotica or where Harlequin-romance-type scenes feature prominently, and I probably won't comment on those scenes in my review.

 

I talk way too much. :ninjavanish: Here's the form:

Bunbury

Hey! We haven't been properly introduced, but I'm Jane :) I was wondering if you'd check out my WIP: 

Story and Author Name, including link: Inheritance [M] by Bunbury
Warnings and Advisories: Derogatory Language, Domestic Abuse, Hate Speech, Violence 
Genre: Mystery, Horror, Drama, Romance, Humour 
Summary: 

Phaedra Morley leads a quiet, private life, working at a Diagon Alley apothecary and looking after her infirm mother. But Phaedra has a secret, and now she must retrace her father's footsteps through the Dark Arts and find out what he was working on when he disappeared in the wake of Voldemort's fall. Along the way she enlists the help of a feckless bookseller and -- much to his displeasure -- Severus Snape. A story of death, madness, haunted houses, true friends, and Cockroach Clusters. 

Ships: Snape/OC
Areas of Concern: Just your thoughts!

Hi! I stopped by your review request thread after reading your fantastic Audrey centered fic.


Story and Author Name, including link:To the East (M) by StarFeather
Warnings and Advisories:Sexual Content, Violence
Genre:Angst, Action, Adventure, Romance, Hurt/Comfort, (a little bit maybe AU but not so much with an Asian fairy tale).
Length: about 5400 words
Summary:It might have been Molly's weary back figure or George's distant gaze while Ron tried saying jokes that caused his impulse to flee to the other countries. It might have been the moment when he heard about a legendary ramen noodles maker in east Asia. He wasn't sure of his true motivation to leave Britain. Maybe he wanted to be like his brother who followed his passion to Romania and its dragons. 
Ships:Hermione/ Ron, Ginny/Harry, Charlie /OC, Molly/Arthur, Fluer/Bill
Areas of Concern:Any thoughts will be appreciated. Thank you in advance!

Summary: A Comedy of Errors about an Unstoppable Force meeting an Immovable Object: Miranda Rose had always enjoyed more than her share of good luck, which served her well in avoiding the consequences of her frequently impulsive behavior.
