    1. Re: LF For Anything Similar To Worm by John C. "Wildbow" McCrae

      Since I'm not entirely sure which aspect of Worm your looking for, I'm kind of on the fence about if my story fits your criteria or not, but... Deviant's Masquerade, is an urban-fantasy anthology, with (...)


    2. Re: Looking for novels with magic as an important part of the story

      They're on hiatus right now but: Twisted Branches: Follows Kaitlyn Smythe as she takes her mage graduation exams, and has a fairly thought out world and culture. (The author seems to have disappeared (...)

    4. Re: Slow Cooking. Novels Heavily Based On Dialogue/Character Interaction.

      There's Zombie knight saga which has been running for a pretty long time, and follows Hector and Garovel the reaper who brought him back to life and keeps him alive in exchange for being his servant, as (...)


    5. Re: Short Story Review Swap

      Sure thing! But if you want, you could instead review the first 5 chapters of my other story Conscientia instead, and I'd do the same for the first 5 chapters of Aeonica. If you don't mind me doing (...)


    6. Re: How many tags is too many?

      Alright, so I'm writing an episodic anthology, with each episode following a different set of characters living in the same world(s), now because of this certain characters or elements have tags that don't (...)


    7. Re: Stories where someone screws up

      My story Deviant's Masquerade, is an Episodic Anthology with 100-150 page episodes, set in an Urban-Fantasy/Superhero world, and while not all episodes have the level of stuff you're looking for, a few (...)


    8. Re: Heroes of the Storm

      I haven't played it much lately, but I used to play it a lot. I remember particularly liking the characters that played differently compared to the rest, like Abathur's symbiotes, or the dual styles of (...)


    9. Re: Holiday Review Swaps

      Finally, the Deviant and the Goldthirst shall meet. Yes, I feel like the company at this masquerade will be quite delightful.


    10. Re: Holiday Review Swaps

      If you don't mind me holding off until this weekend to get started on my review, I wouldn't mind doing a review swap. ---- My story Deviant's Masquerade, is an urban-fantasy anthology, with each episode (...)


    11. Re: Your main character's theme song

      Wasn't this (theme song thing) a whole episode of Ally McBeal back in the day? No idea, but I've seen similar things pop up where people give new theme songs to their favorite characters from a show, (...)


    12. Re: What is a really good story with a villainous/anti hero mc?

      If you don't mind leaving Royal road: -A practical guide to evil, follows a group of villains in a world where everyone knows all the tropes hold true, and they use genre savviness to twist the story (...)


    13. Re: Sky Sight - Arc.2 Complete

      If you don't mind waiting a week or so for me to burn through my backlog, I read the first chapter of Sky Sight and can do a review swap. My story Deviant's Masquerade is an episodic anthology with (...)


    14. Re: A dungeon core that is not a person in a box?

      Hightailing it is a dungeon story on space battles that follows a Kobold who became a dungeon master by hap stance. The first few chapters are a bit rough since the Kobold has a low intelligence stat (...)


    15. Re: High Fantasy Review Swap

      I'm not sure if my story is what you're looking for, but Deviant's Masquerade is an Urban-Fantasy anthology, with each episode being from a different group of character's perspective in a world filled (...)


    16. Re: Is it okay to start your novel with something "adult" to establish who you want your readerbase to be?

      I'm not sure where people are getting the idea that I want to go in an ultra-violence/cosmic horror direction. As far as dark themes go, I think my story's going to end up pretty tame. Fairly certain (...)


    17. Re: Is it okay to start your novel with something "adult" to establish who you want your readerbase to be?

      I don't personally have any objection to browsing in an adult store but I don't think it's representative if the actual dark elements are going to be more along the lines of violence or evil. I agree (...)


    18. Re: Thriller pacing?

      With thrillers the trick, like you mention, is pacing.  I've seen stories that do short but frequent releases work, the problem though is that each chapter needs to be its own scene, or build off of (...)


    19. Re: cool monsters to be the main character of a book,

      For monster main characters... -Slimes are a pretty common starting point with monster MC, with a lot of evolutions in all myths. -I've seen a number of stories do some interesting things with (...)
