Fractured Illusion

This is the place to come if you want reviews for a story, and the review type is "easy fix", aka a simple review.

You can use whichever RG you like: Stories and/or Multi-chap. Just because your story is multi-chap does not mean you cannot use the Story RGs. These RGs are all voluntary.

For Review Game rules and some fun facts, go to "Read this first!".


FAQ: ยป Two or more people have reviewed the same person! What happens now? Answer


Moving on, this is the basic structure of the Review Game:

Person 1 says: Review "My Lucky Dream"!

Person 2 says: Ok, I reviewed "My Lucky Dream", ch 1 . So can the next person please review "Stereotypes" or "Window"?

Person 3 says: Done (I did "Window", chapter 4), so can the next person review "Stranger"? Thanks.


For Stories Easy Fix, your review needs to fulfill these requirements, otherwise you will not be seen as someone who has fulfilled their obligation and you can thus not participate.

REVIEW REQUIREMENTS: There are three categories used to determine whether a review meets the minimum review requirements for the Easy Fix thread. Meeting only ONE of these is required in order to put yourself up next.

First Option:

Your review needs to be AT LEAST 75 WORDS LONG. You can determine the word count of your review by copying and pasting it into any type of word processing software. As a guideline, this paragraph is 53 words long, so you'll need it to be one or two sentences longer than this.

Second Option:

Your review needs to be AT LEAST 450 CHARACTERS LONG. Meaning, instead of counting how many words there are in the review, we'll be counting how many letters. This helps with those who review on a tablet or phone since a word processor is not available to them, and Fiction Press' review system tells you how many characters long your review is as you type it.

Third Option:

You need to state two things you liked and *why*, OR two things you didn't like and *why*, OR one thing you liked and one thing you didn't like and *why*. The review will be seen as invalid otherwise. This option does not require a word or character count minimum.

Restating the same thing does not count as a why. "I really enjoyed the piece because I thought it was very enjoyable" does not count as a why. "I really enjoyed the piece. It was enjoyable because the characters were relateable" does count as a why.

Phrases like "no mistakes" or "good job" do not count as a like. If you cannot find a dislike then write another distinct like do not say "there are no mistakes." That will not count. Saying "good job" or other similar phrases will not count as a like on a piece either. It is not specific.

Here are templates to ensure your review clearly fulfills the qualifications, you can use any of them if you choose, but they are not required:

1) I liked... because... I disliked... because...

2) I liked... because... I liked... because...

3)I disliked... because... I disliked... because...

If you are still unsure on how the review requirement for Easy Fix is viewed, look at this post for guidance.

Note: Commenting on summary and/or title will not count.


Some additional information on what exactly a "Rule 10" and "Rule B" situation means:

Rule 10) Should it be, that in the rare case of two or more people reviewing your story (and posting), the person that got reviewed multiple times will review back. So, if two reviewed the same story, the author will review to the first of the two that posted. The last one is to be treated like a normal poster that is to be reviewed by a new one. Example:

Person A posts. Person B reads, reviews and posts, shortly followed by C (that reviews A's story too). Person A will then review B back, and C will be treated like any normal participant, since he was last.

Rule B) If a player requests a second story solely for players who have already reviewed all of the chapters of their first requested story, then the next player must review the first requested story if they are able to (aka, if they have not been "blocked" - meaning they have not yet reviewed all of the chapters of the first posted story). An example of this request would be as follows:

Please review [First Story]. If you have reviewed all of those chapters, then please review [Second Story], thanks.

So, if you have not reviewed all of [First Story] then you have no secondary option and must review [First Story], but if you have reviewed all of [First Story], then you can freely choose the secondary option, as it is your only choice.

Additionally, if you are making this type of request, please also try to stick to this formula for your request and resist using the word "blocked," as some new members might not know what that means (if you forget to do this, there will be no penalty, this is more just a courtesy request.)



As this is a continuation of a previous thread, the last participant is the first one up to get a review in here. Dr. Self Destruct is up next with Who's Eating Eric Lynch?.
