IntroductionHello fellow shippers, welcome to Fan Fiction Review Game: Shipping Edition. After much discussion in the Author's Cafe, we've decided to go ahead with the review game to help boost some activity in the shipping section. The Review Game in the main shipping section was very successful, although as of now it's inactive it was a great way to promote quality reviews. How this works is that the last person who posted gets one of their chapters of a fan fic or an entire one-shot/drabble gets reviewed by the next poster. The next poster can then ask for either a chapter of their fic or a one-shot/drabble to be reviewed. This thread has been approved and moderated by Skiyomi.
Step One: Read the fic posted by the previous poster. Reserve if you wish.
Step Two: Review the fic. Please post a link or quote review if possible.
Step Three: Inform which a chapter/one-shot/drabble you would like reviewed. Please provide a link if possible.
Step Four: Somebody will review your fic and the cycle will go on.
RulesReviews and fics requested to be reviewed must be posted in Serebii Shipping Fic Section.
Any fanfiction in this section can be reviewed. This includes crossovers and non-pokemon stories.
Shipping discrimination and flaming is discouraged. All flames will be reported.
Reserving reviews are allowed, but your review must be completed within a 24 hour period from the time you reserve the review. You cannot post a link to the fic you would like reviewed until your review is complete to prevent boycotting.
Drabbles can be reviewed. If you review a drabble, please quote a copy of the review in your post when you request a fic to be reviewed.
Please ensure your review is of full quality. Aim to keep your review no shorter than three paragraphs and one for drabbles. Think about the concepts of the story you're reading.
TipsThink about the opening of the fic. What were your first impressions? Were you hooked or were you pushed away?
How did the ending make you feel. Did you feel it was a good ending or did you feel it was unfinished?
Was there any scenes that stood out for you? What was your favourite scene and what was your least favourite scenes.
How is the dialogue? Are they saying things you don't think they would normally say?
Are the characters in character. What impression do the characters give to you?
Are the relationships and shippyness natural or forced?
What do you think of the writing in general? Can you spot any techniques? Is the grammar & Spelling good? Did you spot any typos or mistakes?
What about the plot? Do you find it original or clichéd. Is it executed well? Any ideas how to make it better or are you not sure what to think of it?
Did you enjoy the fic in general? How did the fan fic make you feel? Are you able to talk about the pros and cons of the fic and what do you like or dislike about the fic?
Was there anything you weren't sure about? Let them know in a review.
