I'll give a quick summary of your item. Afterwards, I'll talk about your characters, any Spelling or Grammar issues, and perhaps suggest some things, like adding the item to a Genre that it would fit into.
I'm good at...
Speed Reading/reviewing- 1000 word story won't even take me five minutes to read, and you'll get a review within 10 minutes of me reading it. As it is, my reviews are usually around 300 Characters- minus my Review Sig. However, sometimes they'll reach the 1,000 Character mark. Depends on the Story/item. *Bigsmile*
Favorite Genres
Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Animal
Least Favorite Genres
Can't think of any I don't like.
Favorite Item Types
I like them all.
Least Favorite Item Types
I've yet to not like any item types. Of course, images can be tricky- hard to correct Spelling and Grammar on those. *Bigsmile*
I will not review...
Interactives that don't have an actual story started - Give me some meat to eat there before you ask me to look at it, with at least one thread being at least 10 chapters long, and not just choices that aren't even developed, preferably written by your own hand. Books - well, not through a Review Request page anyways, as I'd would have to review the book itself and not the Chapter, in order to get paid, but I will review them if you ask me in an email. Anything that doesn't allow reviews. *Bigsmile*

This is a Review you Requested. Enjoy.

Well, this is the start of what looks to be an interesting story. You have a young man, who seems to have been on his own for quite some time, except for the voices in his head. However, it seems that the situation is more than it appears to be. Might look at more.

Characters

This is an interesting short story. Seems that Humanity has encountered a race that likes to trade knowledge. In this case, the main character is trying to save a friend from being sold to these people, who it seems like to extract the knowledge using some devices.

Characters
I'd like to know just what Father Klignen is - Is he human or an alien?

This is an interesting poll about a person's favorite type of writing. Personally, I like all types, but my favorite is the Interactive, as you can get so many stories, all from a common origin. After all, start the Main Character off at a crossroads, and here's a few possibilities:

Heads to the North: The MC become the King of a great and powerful nation, with plenty of queens to enjoy the company of.

Heads to the South: The MC becomes a vicious and brutal Bandit Warlord with a huge price on his head, among other things.

Heads to the East: The MC gets captured by a dragon, and is forced to be its slave, or else they become lunch.

Heads to the West: They become a farmer, taxed by the King, robbed by the Bandit Warlord, and terrorized by the dragon.

Undecided: Has an encounter with a guy that has a crossbow - The End.

Plenty of fun.

Originality
Haven't encountered a poll like this.

Seems that our murder suspect is telling our detective more about her life. Seems she spent time in a small self-sustained village up in Canada while staying with her uncle, who seems to be rather mysterious.

Well, this is an interesting In & Out, especially if one likes to add to Interactives. Here is a place where one can learn and share tips for writing additions to those stories that take so many twists and turns, and always create a new story, despite sharing the same originating point as another. Worth looking at.

Thoughts
Very original.

You have what looks to be the start of an interesting story. You have a detective trying to interrogate a suspect n a murder investigation, but it seems that the suspect has something of a tale to tell. I might need to take a look at the additional chapters.

Characters
The characters are interesting.

Spelling and Grammar
In the section where the officer finds out that the suspect knows his name, despite not being told it, it might help to italicize the officer's thoughts.

You have what looks to be the start of an interesting story. You have a woman who, for whatever reason, doesn't like non-human animals, who is creating non-human soldiers in order to fight a robotic enemy. However, an incident soon forces her to work with one of her creations, in order to survive.

Characters
The characters look interesting, but I'd like to know more about them.

I hope to see a Part 2 to this story.

This is an interesting take on the whole "Jack and the Beanstalk" - type story. You have a young woman who climbed a large beanstalk, only to encounter a friendly giant. However, things aren't so easy, especially after she encounters another giant, who isn't so friendly.

Characters
The characters are interesting, but to be honest, the giants could use names, at the very least.

Spelling and Grammar
I don't see any issues with spelling or grammar, but, instead of saying "(expletive deleted)", you could settle for a mild swear word, or perhaps bump it up to 18+ for somewhat stronger swear words.

This is a Review you Requested. Enjoy.

An interesting short story. You have what looks to be a Post-Battle situation, where, after the battle has been done, the surviving fighters are reflecting upon what they did, and are even unsure of themselves. The one offers their support to the other, to try to help them. Interesting. Wouldn't mind knowing more.

Well, this is an interesting read. You have a woman staying at her boyfriend's place during a snowstorm. Problem is, there is a large pet snake, the boyfriend is out, and it seems that someone forgot to feed the snake, and said snake is hungry. I see trouble for someone.

Characters
Interesting. Of course, one might argue about the legality of owning a large snake, but I'll chalk that up to drama.

Spelling and Grammar
I don't see any issues.

Suggestion
Due to the repeated use of the "f-word", you might want to bump the rating up to GC. Just saying.

What a coincidence - I happen to have this same image in my portfolio - different text, but still - nice to have a chance to look at the other one after soo many years. *Laugh*

(In fact, for those of you reading this review out there, me and Megan both placed bids on this image during an auction in October 2012 (if my date's correct), and I think we tried to outbid the other, until she bought it outright. Still, she was nice enough to buy a copy for me.)

Then again, when one shares similar tastes, it's not unheard of for a good bidding war to occur. *BigSmile*

This is a Review you Requested. Enjoy.

You have a police officer investigating an interesting murder. It seems that this murder contains cannibalism, a practice done by what is called "City Building", which had been sealed for over a thousand years. The police officer is trying to bring the perpetrators to justice, but it seems like he's going to have some difficulty, as the "City Building" people do not see it as a criminal act. Makes one wonder.

There's a saying about how hard work can achieve results. Sometimes, the hard work gives good result, but sometimes, the results are not so good. So one should compare the risk to the reward, before doing the work. If the risk is worth the reward, one can make the attempt.

It is good to have goals. However, one must be ready to take on the challenge. Attempting a challenge before one is ready tends to lead to failure. By preparing, the goals are much easier to reach, despite any other difficulties. Attempting when ready is better than attempting when not ready.

Review of Limited Friends  
Rated: E | (4.5)
Friendships are always crazy. One day, you got a hundred friends, and the next, you only have five, if that. Time causes people to change, as does distance. Sometimes one finds out that the other wasn't even a friend to begin with, which can be painful. Of course, one can always see about making new friends.

It can be hard to give one's self a good comparison, especially since people tend to compare themselves to others. Of course, if one compared themselves to themselves, who knows what would happen.

Sometimes things are simple, and we all should do things our own way. Other times though, things are complicated, and not so simple, and thus we have to use other ways as a guide of what to do, and what not to do. But, then again, we all live our own lives.

Well, this is an interesting item. You have a young man who wore a kilt as part of his National Heritage, but gets in trouble at school as a result. Parents show the school the rule that allows him to wear the outfit. School changes the rule. Boys protest, and start wearing dresses - I wonder how the rest is going to end.
