Twelve Trials of Triskellion 2014 - Week 9

One of the things that makes the archive and the forum such a success and such a pleasure is of course the wonderful community of writers and readers. Interactive feedback is insanely valuable to a writer and hey everyone can do with an ego boost, because no matter the review, we all like to get a chime telling us someone read our work and felt enough to make a comment good, bad or indifferent. So get reading and reviewing for another manic Review Hunt

The review hunt is scored thusly:

  • Base points: The number of words per review.  So, if you write five words in a review, you get five points.
  • Bonus points: As stated above, we like to reward quality over quantity.  Therefore, you can win bonus points for posting an in-depth review!
  • Extra bonus points: For every review on a story on the Master List, there will be an additional +? bonus points (Steff can decide that).

The Master List is going to be a recommendation of one of your own stories and one from a different author. Post your story choices in this thread.

Post reviews in the Review Count thread.

There is no limit on the stories you can review.  You're welcome to re-review a story you read long ago, bringing new insights to the table for the author to enjoy.  Feed the creative souls of Ad Astra, and win!
