FRSimage Remember, when you sign your fanon under any of the member's schedules, you will receive a thoughtful, detailed evaluation of your story. Please don't take offense if the review wasn't positive. We always give advice! - The Fanon Review Squad

Is your fanon unread, unnoticed, or just in need of some advice? Do you wonder for hours and hours every day, wanting to know what makes your fanon shine? Have you needed a bit of motivation, some reception on how your stories are going?
Ask these questions no longer!
The Fanon Review Squad is a user group of knowledgeable fanon authors with extensive writing experience who will review your fanon upon request. Just go down to the bottom of the page and drop a link to your story under one of the group member's schedules. On the day that you request, we'll make a little blog post about your fanon, give it some scores, and tell some advice. And if your story is good, you'll probably get lots of new fans.

Member Responsibilities

Being a part of the Fanon Review Squad isn't just for fun and socializing. When you join, you will be given a schedule - which you will have to organize yourself - at the bottom of the page where fanon writers may leave a link to their story, hoping for it to get reviewed. You are responsible for creating a review for that fanon in blog post form on the day that your schedule says. The format of the blog post is up to you, but please add {{FRSNotice}} at the top of each review. When you have finished, take that fanon off your schedule and put a link to the review in the "Reviews" section at the bottom of this page.

  • You are also expected, as a member, to be checking the FRS Talk Page actively. Messages pop up on there a lot, and whether they are questions from the community or other members who need to discuss something within the group, we need you to contribute.
  • If for whatever reason you're unable to publish reviews for a prolonged amount of time, you will be given a maximum inactivity period of 2 months before being removed automatically from the Squad. To avoid this, however, you may choose to announce a formal resignation instead.

Resignation Rules

Being a member of Fanon Review Squad can often be challenging, as life is tough and we don't have all the time in the world to be on a tight reviewing schedule. Often, one missed review can lead to another, and sometimes we get so caught up in our reviewing we feel as though we just can't handle the work. If you need to quit the group, that's fine. We understand. However, before leaving, the following two things must be done:

  1. All reviews in your schedule must be complete. You can stop accepting review requests and take as long as you want to get the ones you have done, but we can't just ditch customers who put their fanon down on a schedule.
  2. Please leave a message on our talk page just informing us that you are leaving and preferably also giving the reasoning for your departure.

Then you can go! We'll take care of updating this page accordingly. If you are in an absolute emergency that will include leaving the FRS, tell us and exceptions can be made to the above rules.

So you want your fanon reviewed?

Does your story long for a bit of advice and popularity? Just add a link to your fanon's main page under one of the member's names below, and on the day you request they'll post a review. You can put your fanon down under multiple member's schedules, for multiple reviews, but each member can only review your fanon once. Reviews should be only for active fanons - ones that have yet to be completed. And if you ever see an open date that says "Ba Sing Se Edition", snag it fast! Those reviews will be featured in The Ba Sing Se Times.

  • Potential Review Policy: This rule applies to all potential fanon reviews. Fanons must be long enough to portray the themes, characters, and plot direction. This rule is designed to help the potential fanon reviews, and their authors, in that a lengthier fanon can be better analyzed. If a fanon only has two short chapters, it is nearly impossible to delve into plot progression or character development. As a rule of thumb, 5 chapters is usually adequate for a review. Just think about the content in your story and whether or not the review will be a solid reflection.
  • One-shot Review Policy: This rule applies to all potential one-shot reviews. One-shots will be treated like any other fanon. In order to review to the best extent of our abilities and provide the best insight possible, we ask that one-shots are submitted in the same way as other serial fanons. We do not review singular one-shots. We will treat one-shots in the same way we treat chapters of a serial fanons. If you would like your one-shots to be reviewed, please submit them as part of a series of one-shots, specifically designated and linked together. The reason for this is that it allows the Fanon Review Squad to better analyze the author's writing tendencies over the course of multiple stories. They don't have to be related in any way, but please understand we need to have enough material to write a substantial, in-depth review. Same as in a serial fanon, a series of 5 One-shots is encouraged.

Keep in Mind:

  • I do not take off points based on how much your writing mechanisms differ from mine in particular, nor are you doomed if your grammar isn't perfect. I will only deduct for whatever hindered my experience as your average reader. (Which actually means it could be anything.)
  • Complimentary chapter-by-chapter comments are included with your review ;) I realize that my reviews have more critical content than praise, so to compensate I'll detail what you did well on your fanon pages. Just throwing it out there. (No author minds extra comments, don't deny it :P)
  • If you're interested in any writing tips from me beforehand, you can reference my profile for a list of topics. These only reflect how I personally go about it, though, so don't treat it as universal law and remember to trust yourself, too :)
  • Writing a story about the Dai Li will not get you a better score. (It's been tried.)


Current Schedule:

Note: My review schedule has no specific dates attached to it, and the speed at which I finish my reviews depends upon the length of the fanon, how busy I am in real life and other factors. Nevertheless, I will make my best effort to complete your review as swiftly as possible. In general, I follow both rules of thumb: a minimum of five chapters and a minimum of five one-shots. If you choose to submit one-shots, you can list any combination of one-shots you like, provided that there are at least five, even if those one-shots are not otherwise related. Ultimately, my goal is to help you improve your story and improve your writing, so I'll pack as much feedback as possible into my reviews. You can check out my blog post on category explanations to see how I review. Roku sprite 01

To-Do

If you would like to have me review your fanon, then first of all, thank you. :) Feel free to add your fanon if there is a free slot under the ‘To-Do’ section. If you do see your fanon appear under the 'Current' section, then that means I have officially started reading your fanon! :) So please leave that section for me to update. I follow the rule of thumb of having five chapters or five one-shots, but if your one-shot is fairly long I may be inclined to review it individually if you prefer, so feel free to send a message and we can talk further. As for what to expect from me as a reviewer, I try to give insightful and constructive advice about your fanon and writing, which may include specific examples from your story.

I hope that me being your reviewer will not only be helpful, but also enjoyable. If you have any questions then don't hesitate to ask. ;)

If you want your fanon reviewed by any of the above members of the FRS, add a link to their schedule(s).
Dates are first come first serve, and are subject to change.
