Here's the situation:
You read an amazing fan fiction and you have plenty to say about what you liked and didn't like. You have plenty of comments to make about the pacing, style and grammar. You know that the author would benefit and grow as a writer from your comments.
But you can't be bothered typing up a review.
I would be interested in making my review just a straight up ramble to a camera talking about what I liked and didn't like. From this idea alone, plenty of advantages and disadvantages spring to mind. The facelessness of this forum would be over and usernames would become people. Also, those of us with less technical knowledge would be able to give their opinions in a more fluid way. The old style of "I really liked X" comes off as lazy and bland in a review but if you could speak about what you liked it would make the review more authentic and valuable to the author.
Of course, I wouldn't be too keen on a friend of mine finding my review and posting it on Facebook. I'm not the coolest guy around but I'm a little embarrassed about writing fan fiction and I don't need the hilarious drama right now. I'm seriously considering creating video review for fan fiction I've really enjoyed but haven't gotten around to typing something up for yet.
Video reviews, the future of fan fiction or a concept more frail than a lactose intolerant baby???
