Public Notices

People keep asking, “Hey, I see you rated my story! Are you going to review it?”

If I read it, I review it.

There are no exceptions.

Reading Progress

Review Schedule and Other Spreadsheets

My Long Term Schedule for stories over 70,000 words in length is currently booked through January 2021. Please keep this in mind when planning to request stories longer than 70k words in length.

The Review Schedule

This schedule lists the stories that are set to be reviewed every week. The next six weeks are always included. I may have more than six scheduled, but only the nearest six will actually be visible at any time.

The Reading Schedule

The day-to-day reading schedule, which dictates what I will read and when. Mostly meant for my own use in limiting how much I read every day, but kept available to the public for the sake of transparency.

Author Scoring Spreadsheet

The archive. Contains a list of every story I've ever reviewed with links to both the story and the review.

A Brief Look Into The Insanely Detailed World That Is Paul's Mind

Read this if you want to see what I go through every Saturday to deliver to you folks a weekly review blog. Be warned, this thing is overbearingly detailed.


Concepts and Creations — The Tale of Tom · 4:27pm Sunday

Been a while since I did one of these, so I figured why not?

Yes, I'm serious, I had a story idea with Tom as the main character. But not, it turns out, as we normally think of him.

Review Requests

Rules for Requesting Reviews

Want to request a review? There's no 'correct' way to do it. PM me, comment on my blogs, comment on my user page, it's all good. As soon as I've acknowledged the request I'll go into my Review Schedule and add yours to the queue. Just remember: requests are always first come/first serve, so don't be surprised if you're waiting a few months when my request list has gotten overwhelmed. There are only two rules:

No Clop
Have I read clop? Yes. Do I review clop? No. My reviews are for stories, not blatant fap material.

As a general rule, I avoid reading incomplete stories. I tend to make an exception to requests, but I reserve the right to decline incompletes.

Thank you for adding According to Plan! to your Sequels and Completes bookshelf. We hope you like the story.

*best Rarity impression* I am, aren't I? :raritywink:

No, Mr. Asaran.

You're worth it.

Ah, fair enough. If anything I'd suggest bumping it off the schedule and putting Teeny Tiny on the end of your current one; I'd rather you read a decent story later than a mediocre one soon, is all, but you're better at this than I ever was so I'll defer to your expertise X)

Sorry, but the deciding factors are A) the story's been on my hard schedule for six weeks now, B) it's in the middle of one of my densest reading weeks of the year so far, in terms of both wordcount-per-day (35k+) and sheer number of reviews (47), and C) my aunt springing a surprise weekend getaway on me that week that, while appreciated, is going to make keeping the deadlines a lot harder. I know it's a mere 1,800-word difference, but on a week like that every little bit helps.
