Hey everyone at Fictionpress. I hope everyone's year is starting off good. And now to get down to business.
I started this topic because when I get reviews, I like to give reviews in return. However, I prefer supernatural stories myself (no offense to authors that don't. You're welcome if you want to read our stories too. I'm just speaking my mind). So if you have a supernatural/sci-fi/fantasy story, come check out this topic and review each other's stories and post your own. And constructive criticism only! Vampires, werewolves, witches, heck even a zombie or two. So come out!
P.S. To get this ball rolling, the story I'm primarily working on and would love opinions from is called The Fate Cards: The Joker Deck.
Summary: Hadley Valentine has dealt with the supernatural world before, all with the help of her employer Claudine and her deck of magical cards. Within the patterns of spades and clubs, fates can be told and magic can be used. But magic elsewhere has begun to stir up as an unknown evil shuffles a forbidden deck with bloodthirsty intentions. Refusing to accept her own dark fate, Hadley will gamble with destiny to change it.
Enjoy and tell me what you think!1/01 #1
Hello, J. L. and any future posters. I'm writing a fantasy story called Hero I Am, and would love reviews. If someone reviews it, I'll definitely return the favor :) , no matter rating, legnth, or age. Here's the summary: Long ago, there were four great superheroes. Their greatness, however, is a matter of opinion. My family was descended from one of them. I had a power of my own, but I had to keep my lineage secret, as the person I was descended from allegedly died at age twenty five, and never had a kid. Of course, the other three descendants just had to come to my school looking for a "fourth". Thanks in advance!1/22 #2
Thanks for being the first one to respond! I'm glad you enjoyed my story and I'll get to your story either tonight or tomorrow. Let's hope we can get more participaters!1/22 #3
I'll be willing to review anyone's who reviews mine :)
Hey, my story isn't fantasy or supternatural, but you did say sci-fi stories were also acceptable, so here's mine. (:
Carriers-It started with them, the Carriers. Soon, everybody in America wants them dead. None of them are even old enough to legally drive. Things twist every day, and will the teenagers be able to hold it together, with people dying and it is ultimately their fault?
There's the short summary ( I know it doesn't sound good, summaries are not my strong suit) the story is 20 chapters in, I apologize for the length. The first couple chapters were written AGES ago, I should be revising them soon.1/23 #5
Ooo a nice idea for a thread ;)
I'll get to Carriers again soon and anyone else who wants a review for their story, lemme know.
Mine's called Guardians of Woe, a supernatural/adventure.
Summary: Forsaken by their Creator, humanity unknowingly relies on winged guardians to keep the shadows at bay. Some shadows however, will not be vanquished so easily. (note: This summary sucks something bad so I gotta fix it later on o.O)1/23 #6
I'd love it if someone could read my story Magic In Color, then maybe review or have a nice chat (I'm very proud of it so be gentle). Summary: Following an incident in which the world was almost destroyed, the existence of magic was made public knowledge with the destruction of the Masquerade, an ancient spell that kept the magical world and the world of men seperate. Over a decade later, one of the key players from the incident, Gaius Julian the Black, takes on his first apprentice. Meanwhile Conner the Red, leader of the North American magicians, shirks his duties to go adventuring, or so it seems. In Europe, a mad Dutch Wizard builds himself an empire. many other colorful characters try to make their way in a world that has suddenly become twice as big.2/03 #7
I'm going through and reviewing all of you. I'd love it if I could get some reviews on my work. I have a mix of horror, fantasy, supernatural, a few other genres, and some poetry. Reviews on anything would be lovely. Thanks!
I should perhaps note that I tend to pick up mostly on things I disliked when I review, so if my review is full of negatives, I really don't mean to be discouraging! I love when people point out both what they I liked and didn't like about my stories, and I try to give praise for all the things I enjoy, but it's easier to make note of things I don't like, because the things I like keep me reading, whereas things that take me out of the story make it easy to take a break to jot it down. I do think all of you have pretty neat ideas, which is cool. There's a lot of terrible, boring cliches floating around fictionpress, so even having unique and interesting ideas is pretty good.2/06 .

Hi, I'm The Swan. I've been a member of Fictionpress for a while, but haven't had much time to devote to my writing hobby. I'm interested in supernatural fiction, so when I saw this section appear in the Roadhouse forum, I was pretty excited! I haven't been doing the review thing for long, but I'm looking forward to reading some of the stories mentioned in this topic. I've already read and reviewed J. L. Horowitz's really good story, The Fate Cards: The Joker Deck. (Keep up the good work!) I've only got one story running at the moment, I'm afraid, but if anyone feels like reading and reviewing it, I'd be very appreciative, and would. of course, repay you with reviews for your own stories! (Mine is called The Calling. Here's the link and summary:
Serah isn't what she seems to be ... and everyone knows it. What nobody knows is how Serah struggles with the tasks she was born to complete. In a story spanning worlds and centuries, this enigmatic protagonist battles evils that often hit close to home, while grappling her own demons. Set in a world like our own, yet not so like, can Serah deal with her calling? Rated M.
Hope you all have great day!2/11 . Edited 2/11 #11
Anyone willing to give The Path to Repression some reviews?
I will repay eventually :P2/13 #12
So, um, I found this place and it seems like a good place to leave The William Profile. I'm going to slowly work my way through the other stories, and I'd like it a lot if I could get some feedback on my own. Thank you.4/13 #13
