Another little note: if I give you a "Level of" 10-scale rating, here's the rating scale I use:
Level of [quality] (Where [quality] is replaced by whatever I'm measuring the level of)
0: This fic didn't exhibit much [quality] at all.
1-2: This fic exhibited very little [quality] - not enough to consider it a fic in the [quality] category.
3-5: This fic had a mediocre or average level of [quality]. It's an okay amount, but not very much either.
6-7: This fic had quite a bit of [quality].
8-9: This fic had copious amounts of [quality].
10: This fic is the very definition of [quality].
