    I sat next to two people this year who are obsessed with Homestuck, and it just sounds like the most insane thing on the planet! Whenever I asked them what it was about, I just got really really confused...

    Yeah my friend once told me this about Homestuck "There's no way to describe the plot because the plot is simply nonsense" but she really likes it.

    Any love for The Review Game? Would be great to keep it going and I'm sure Flaze will appreciate the review.


    Yeah so I've heard. It is something I just never could get into but from what I hear it is the craziest thing ever.

    I'd keep participating, except I don't really have a story that I'm craving attention for at the moment. xP

    Er...this is kinda why I thought it was might not be a smart idea to bar people from participating every five turns, I'd love to to continue the game but I've already reviewed Flaze's Prologue as well as Chapter one. Re-reviewing it would be pointless and reductive, in situations like these it's usually good to offer more than one option if you suspect most have already reviewed your story. Or not ask for specific chapter reviews that have been out to the general community for quite a long time. The game has effectively stalled due to this. I couldn't review any of his future chapters either since I've done this....not sure what to say tbh :I

    The story isn't actually that complicated - Wikipedia's actually got a pretty succinct and understandable summary.

    I'm mostly reading it for the language. The word choice, description, dialogue, and style is absolutely amazing, and really invaluable from a writing standpoint. Like, who would have ever thought to call a piggy bank a "porkhollow?" The relationships and societies he creates are complex, but no more so than they really need to be.

    You could always offer your views on the prologue now that you have read more of the story and could discuss how your original views on the series have changed since you first read it or potentially just do a review of the series as a whole so far. While offering more options is a good idea, it is not as if the game is officially over now or anything. We have had two, week long delays already but they get turned around in the end. And again, the five turns thing is there to prevent people from trying to get too much attention as the entire reason why I chose to go ahead with the game was because we want a wide variety of stories to be recognised. I will discuss the idea of more chapter options to Soulmaster but we do not want to over complicate things either, more so than they already are.

    This is the Review Game, not the Review Exchange. We have too many things called Review floating about :P One of them should be called The Judgement Corner and make it sound like something from the Underworld.

    That's totally not what I meant. I don't even know why I mentioned Flaze having already read and reviewed mine... >_>
