This needs to be updated…
Because I have do to it manually, I usually update it twice per arc, once halfway through and once at the end. I was actually planning on doing that today.
Ohhh, ok. I’d suggest keeping it current, for ease of browsing, but I don’t know how hard it is to do that.
COMMENTS ON THE STORY SO FAR:
In short: Filling, surprisingly subtle
Your prose is by no means beautiful, but it’s solid, with a good twang and whomp to it. The characters are likewise solid and believable, without being incredibly deep, but with hints of depth to them. The setting elements are a bit derivative, but with enough originality and twists to keep me intrigued.
If I had to call this a food, I’d say that it was an artisanal bread, the kind with hints of spice and different grains, with seeds scattered all over.
It’s a nice base, and interesting enough on its own, but I’m most interested in what directions you take it.
Sorry if that sounded too critical. That was just my impression after reading through everything a couple times.
Most of what you’ve noted is actually quite reassuring. The non-beautiful prose is at least somewhat deliberate- in an effort to eschew obfuscation, I’ve tried to tone down the vocabulary at some points where I’m told my writing tends to get a bit florid. I want this to be something people can enjoy reading,
As for where I’m taking it, I have plans. I didn’t have a plan when I started, but I do now, and I’m pretty exited.
The bread comparison struck me as apt, and I appreciate the metaphor as a way of describing it- I had a loaf of that kind of bread recently, and it was damn good with some honeycomb.
Anyway, thanks for reading and for your comments! If you like, you can put this review up on the Web a Fiction Guide. You don’t have to, but for some reason getting reviews on there causes a significant uptick in readership, so it’d be appreciated.
You should write a short on power classifications like joker powers and such
Hmm, that’s a good idea. I may do that at some point.
