Well I did a review for a fic not in this site but I went to practice what I learned from other reviewers. Granted I wasn't asked to review the piece but the style, format and layout was just so horrible (multi-colored and even different fonts as a way to address different characters speaking, more telling, no showing, resemblance of a blog, cheesy and cliche romance story) it was just begging for rectification. Granted it was a first fic for the writer and I voluntarily skimmed through with just the basic constructive criticisms, not covering grammar and punctuation since I want her to tackle one difficulty at a time being her first fic. Normally I would be okay if she didn't reply or comment regarding my criticism but instead she thanked me and said 'I think your criticisms will help me. Thank you!' Now I've seen her recent post and...nothing has changed! In fact, it's gotten even worse than before! There's less narrative depth and no imagery. Although, the readers don't seem to mind...or care about it even if it kills their eyesight (some admittedly so.) It's retarded I know. I hate my own countrymen. Currently, I'm debating whether I should post a piece of my mind in her story or just quietly slip away and accept the fact that I just made a fool out of myself.
