I always try to get these reviews posted around the fifteenth of the month, and I think this is the first time I’ve been late rather than early. Blame Camp NaNoWriMo, and check out Extemporaneous to see where I am with both it and my other writing. But if you’re just interested in the reviews and updates here, then keep reading!
The stories I reviewed this month were:
- Glint of Heaven by Llama
- Unforgivable Sin by Nadine and Candice
- Tiny Dancer by Cate
- Operation Tulsa Thunder by Adam
- Calm Before The Storm by Celeste Albone
- Best Kept Secret by Liz
Yes, that is a slightly different list than I posted last month. That seems to happen every time, doesn’t it? This time, I realized that one of my previous reviews was in the wrong era. Because I want to keep things even (at the end of August, I’ll have twelve stories/series reviewed for each era), I skipped the Underneath Era this time and reviewed two Strong Enough To Break Era stories instead.
Speaking of those eras, I’ve given the entire reviews section a makeover. It’s in WordPress now, which will make it far easier for me to update. It should also be a bit easier to navigate. While I haven’t given up on my eras, the menu now has a drop down thingy, so that if you just hover over each era, you’ll see the full list of stories from that era which I have reviews for. That should save you a few clicks and make it easier to find what you’re looking for.
So go check it out and read those reviews! And check back next month to see reviews of the following stories:
- Zac Says Tay Still Wets The Bed, I Ain’t No Angel and My Little Blond Friend by Nick
- Put Your Kingdom Up For Sale by Phyllis Black and Nikki Briefs
- Avery by Ashley
- Every Word I Say and Even When I Stay by Tiff
- Pages Of Your Diary by Sammy
- This Glassy Surface by Lucie
But before you go! I’m still working on the new content for next month, and I need your help!
There are a lot of tropes that get repeated in hanfic over and over again, and others have attempted to compile lists of them, but I wanted to make a list of my own. What are tropes? Well, they’re sort of like cliches, but without the negative connotation. They’re concepts, plots, etc that occur in lots of stories. They might become cliche, but they wouldn’t be written over and over if people didn’t enjoy them. So, when you think about hanfic, what tropes come to mind?
