Review of The Good Witch

Reviews, Plus Ultra!


Hey, What's up lightinMind

My thoughts:An interesting story from start to end. It really drew me in as I anticipated what was going to go wrong on Greta's visit to the town.

What I liked: The history of the great wars that was just a cover up for the magical wars going on behind the scenes. And your descriptions were really good as well.

Characters:Greta was super interesting to read about, her whole backstory/daily life was really woven interestingly into the story.

Ambrose was also a great character, his description was done very well and just when I thought I knew what he was all about, bam, he was actually the antagonist and Greta had to get away.

Typos: There were none that I noticed.

Hey, whats up Phoenix Scribe

My thoughts: Not only an interesting Story, but an interesting premise. The writing was good, maybe could've been a bit funnier but that part about feeling your self made me chuckle.

What I liked: The idea of a teen randomly shape shifting at school was intriguing, that's an interesting premise. Reading it I got a sort of Family Guy vibe, like that sort of animated comedy show.

Characters: Akemi was interesting, she and the people around her seemed pretty used to the transformations.

My issues/suggestions: felt like the descriptions after shes transformed could've been better, as I wasn't familiar with the characters she turned into. Also wondering how big is this windblade transformer since it seemed that she transformed into it in her room?

Typos: Didnt notice any typos *Clap*

Review of Post concrete

Hey lightinmind,

Great job on the story man. It was interesting, especially liked your premise; it suddenly becomes deadly to be around concrete, could definitely see that causing the world to fall.

There were some minor things I thought could be better;

-At the beginning I thought the scene could've been set better, saying they were in Martha's tent and giving an idea of how people were there.

- Also wondered if six drones being able to lift a ton is realistic? I don't know much or anything about drones just a ton seemed like a lot.

- Has a part where you has north Germany, think you wanted northern Germany.

- Also it feels like this was just act one, didn't get a sense of closure or Ike a climax so I hope there's more to come.

But a great job man

Hey Akareel, good morning man

Well to answer your first question, no I dont think this can stand as a first chapter. And for the the second question I would say yes but that solely because I love reading about magic and how other persons
go about creating their magic systems.

There were some sentences that seemed off to me. Like "He did the act of clenching his right hand in front of him" why include " He did the act"

The reason I said that I dont think this can stand as a first chapter is because there's no tension, no inciting incident. I'm assuming Urie awakening to magic is going to be the inciting incident or something that happens when he go to the tower so maybe you could consider starting the story on the day of the harvest festival or when he goes to the tower.

It wasn't a terrible read just lacked that tension, that main dramatic question at the end of the first chapter.

Well good luck man and keep on writing you're definitely on the right track.

Hey there Simple Spider

My initial thoughts: A well written piece, didn't notice any typos.

Issues/suggestions: The protagonist reactions to being out of her body seemed too calm/she didn't as scared as she should have been by the whole situation.

I'm also confused as to what was going on, what were the little demons doing? Healing people? And why was the protagonist torquise?

Hey Robert, sorry it's been a minute since I promised you this review. Just started a new job, so things a bit hectic right now. I had actually read the first draft but by the time I was going to post my review the second one was already up.

My thoughts: Overall this second draft is definitely stronger, but personally I liked the ending from the first one better. Making Sam gay definitely made the bullying more traumatic. An idea I also had was what if from the start of the story you let the reader know about the kidney donation and have Sam be the only one in the dark till the end. Just a thought I had, like having the reader waiting to see Sam's reaction when he finally finds out

My issues/suggestions:In the paragraph where Ron handed him the water how about omitting 'once' and using 'and' instead of ', he' there.

How about Leaving Ron with no doubt that God's...

Typos: didn't notice any :)

What's up Melina

My thoughts:An interesting and we'll written prologue, left me wondering what this world is like and what is the narrator.

What I liked:No, not a man[,] for I do not, nor will I ever, associate myself with the likes of humans. This was a pretty cool sentence and an interesting reveal that the narrator isn't human.

My issues/suggestions:where you has envious at the life I enjoy, how about 'envious of' instead

Typos:no typos that I noticed :)

The Super Power reviewers group thanks Schnujo for her amazing charity auction

What's up Jody, hope you're having a great day

My thoughts:A great piece of flash fiction

What I liked:lol, the ending was hilarious.

Characters:For such a short piece I feel like I got to know sprocket so well, a kind caring soul that works hard. She had real and believable dialogue with Mr Alexander. He was also interesting, the absent minded genius racer, sounds like a character to write a whole book on:)

My issues/suggestions:no issues or suggestions

Typos:and no typos Yah!

What's up gingerbug, hello again

My thoughts:A well written story and an interesting read, though there are quite a few sentences that need to be improved.

What I liked:when she fell into the floor as soon as she reached enticing book, that was nicely done :)

Rikki's mom rubbing the back of her neck was a nice mannerism, made her seem more real and adding mannerisms is something I struggle to do myself.

At the end when you described what rikki's father did to her mother, that was really well described, good job, A++

My issues/suggestions: The first paragraph felt like it was being told too much as opposed to being shown. And I felt like the opening sentence was too cryptic, going by the prologue I'm assuming this is where she wakes up after she was drugged but starting with 'I was outside' sort of makes it seem like she just magically appeared there especially seeing as she had no idea where she was. Also why did it seem like she was on a battle field?

You described the floor as metallic with bolts and cracks. Also the purple energy seemed to be coming from below the floor. As I read it I couldn't visualize the floor setting, I think giving more detail as to the how these bolts and cracks are situated would help, i'm also assuming the purple energy was shining up from the cracks.

Making sure I wasn't making(having) hallucinations. I don't think there's really anyway to make sure you're not having hallucinations unless you has someone there to tell you the person you're seeing isn't there, so how about: hoping I wasn't hallucinating.

Typos: the brightest purple I (had) ever...

"What's going on?" I (said).

Your(You're) no fun...

I look(ed) around me...

Let you fall asleep (then) say...

What's up River

My thoughts:An awesome story, I really enjoyed it and I'm looking forward to reading more of river's journey and the destruction brought about by the robots.

What I liked:Oh, how naive and trusting we were then. :)

I can make it! I ran track! A+ for bravery lol That entire scene was also really exciting, watching her race against time really brought the tension

Characters:River was pretty cool. And brave :) The characters were believable and had realistic dialogue.

My issues/suggestions:when carebots had just come out. How about: when carebots were just released

Expl-ns, think you should make it more clear that this word is explosions, assuming that's what it is:)

and opened to door to our apartment. Has typo in here but how about going with and opened our apartment door.

I looked up and down the hallway I was on(e) to check for...how about ...hallway checking for large cracks

The scene where the lady sends river back to get her bracelet seemed implausible, cuz I'm thinking the reason she has a bracelet is because she was scanned and found to be human. And maybe the bracelet serves some other purpose or you need it so you don't get electrified at the pod doors but think you need to make clear why she had to go back for the bracelet. Also the scene where river verified Latin wasn't a robot by checking his pulse further raises the question as to why she had to go back for the bracelet.

My hand slipped through the door and onto my side... I couldn't visualize what happened here, how/why did her hand slip? It seems like the door has two halves and she stuck her hand in between as it was closing, showing how her arm was wedged in there could help give some clarity(like was it wedged at her elbow? Higher? Lower?) And where you said 'and onto my side' seems like it may be unnecessary.

Implausible: why was Latin staying in the minimart considering that the appearantly more hospitable wall Mart was right next door?

Oh and how about a name for this robotic race of usurpers. Just calling them AI feels like a waste.

Typos:the(that) AI would overrule(sounds wrong here, maybe:try to take over) for a while...

Immediately afterwards(after) the lady...

And about three days in to(into) my stay at...

I wasn't supposed to know I discovered that on(by) accident.

That's why you couldn't get it(in, maybe?)

Do you too(know) how stupid that is?

What's up Smee

My thoughts:A very interesting and very creative story. Looking forward to seeing the rest of your world.

What I liked:I like the world so far. Utter darkness, a flat smooth ground, appearantly a hunting ground for morhem. And they've never seen a human before. All very intriguing.

Characters:I think you did a great job with the characters, they had great reactions and dialogue.

Typos:and he didn't intend (on) losing it.

What's up duhhfactor, you reviewed a piece of mine a while back and thought I'd repay the favor

My thoughts:An interesting story, sounds like an interesting world and I enjoyed reading it.

What I liked:The mention of wizards and dwarves. Plus they stole his carriage lol, thieving dwarves.

Characters:The protagonist was an interesting guy, my only problem with him was after the voice told him she'd appear at some point and kill him he didn't immediately seek help. He lives in a world with magic and wizards yet he spent days worrying and only ended up seeking help from a wizard after his friend questioned him.

My issues/suggestions:her voice teetering on insaneness. How about insanity instead

As he had referred to it as. Think you should take out 'as' at the end.

When he opened his eyes she was no longer standing in front of him. You didn't mention her appearing

Typos:he knows their they're stable

He had had a carriage...

His heart beat(s) wildly now

He see(s) nothing

What's up smee, coming to you live from the FSFS review board

My thoughts: An interesting first chapter.

What I liked:The set up for the story was pretty cool. And his experience while falling I to the blackness was well described.

Characters:Sej had some interesting inner dialogue, didn't really learn much about him but the story is just getting started. Only info I would have liked to know about him is his age/age group, you said he had young hands so at least I know he isn't wrinkled but left me wondering young like in his 20s, 30s etc.

My issues/suggestions:no issues, suggestions

Typos:or typos:)

My thoughts:An interesting story, nice cliffhanger.

What I liked:How Sarah's unsuspecting friend was going on about how you may never know, monsters may be real while Sarah comes from a family of monsters :)

Characters:You had interesting and believable characters with believable and realistic dialogue.

What's up Espinado

My thoughts:An interesting story Espinado. I think your cliffhanger could use some work though, there wasn't like any tension at the end there, no one was worried or seemed to be in any danger. Still a good job tho, keep on writing man :)

My Favorite part:The German accent :) and also where you described it as a 'cartoon' German accent :)

Who calls the great pumpkin lol

Characters:The characters were pretty interesting, didn't really learn much about them but an interesting cast of species.

My issues/suggestions:Said a woman, think you should take out the comma here

Grunted a short man with scars, think you should describe his scars and also mention where on his body they are

Popped up over it(think you should reword this part, like maybe emerged over the grave or something like that)

More wear and tear than the last row.(think you should take out row at the end there)

There were one more man and two...(There was one man and two women. Since you already pointed out that there was three others in the previous sentence don't think you need'more' in there.

Typos:." Said a woman... (," said a woman...)

Form popped up over it and spoke (.)

I can not touch...(cannot)

A middle aged woman in pants... (a)

My thoughts: An interesting and well written story.

My Favorite part: the table that displayed the mortal realm, that was a nice and creative touch.

My issues/suggestions: I felt like there could have been more showing, all of the events that happened on the mortal plane were told about instead of shown. And while the God's and the table were some interesting aspects I didn't get a great feel of tension between the characters.

My thoughts: An interesting and well written story.

My Favorite part:when you announced the baby had died, made me physically flinch with surprise :) (don't know why I said physically like there's some other way:)

My issues/suggestions:'a grape and flower beds' don't really know how grapes are grown but feels like this might be a typo

Felt like the sentence where you mentioned a doctor was staying there could have been written better, I'm thinking maybe: Although a doctor friend was staying there at the time...

Everybody passed it on like it must have dreamed at the time. Don't know what this means, a typo?

Typos:has corps.(corpse) the fact that Ann was reciting poetry to it is making me wonder if you actually meant corpse though and if you did, is that a usual thing? (Not saying that it needs editing just something I've never heard of before)

My thoughts: A good start. Your sentence structure and punctuation still needs a lot of work but the story idea wasn't half bad. I'm guessing this is the first or among the first things you've ever written and you're only fifteen so you've got a lot of time to polish up your writing. Keep at it man, who knows, maybe one day Stephen king would be asking for your autograph :)

What's up Starmic

My thoughts:An interesting read.

My Favorite part:The blue dust that became the wisp that lead to the demons, that was a nice creative touch.

Characters:Felt like I didn't get to know the characters, that is often the case in these short pieces. But felt like you could of added some info on the characters motivations so we could better understand why they were doing the things they did.

My issues/suggestions:When you said the terrain was getting deeper, did you mean he was going underground? Think you needs to make that part clearer.

I'm not 100% sure but I'm assuming Vaz and Alexander are two different persons. In which case you need to make that more clear. When Vaz first came up there was no mention of who he was or any indication that the story was now focused on a different person, was wondering if maybe Vaz was a nickname for Alexander. There was also a paragraph that ended with Vaz swimming to the island and the next paragraph began with Alexander exhausted on the beach after swimming to the island which is what got me thinking they were probably the same person.

Also don't understand what happened when Vaz and Alexander met each other.

The ending where Vaz killed the demon came off as to easy, felt like this was the climax of the story but it wasn't very exciting.

Typos:has but you good boy..(think you wanted: a good boy)
