Suck It And See

Because it's fun to be this obsessive.

This is a community for the discussion of fiction in many forms, as well as for encouraging people to write reviews -- as opposed to recommendations. We're here because we want to *talk* about the fan fiction and movies and books that hit us between the eyes -- not just consume them.

We're here because it's possible -- just possible -- to capture the near-mythic college bullshit session in journal form.

The rules are simple: Participate. This means that when there's a call for fic/books/movies/whatever to be nominated for review, you throw something in the ring.

And this *also* means that you write the reviews for those things that are in the ring in a timely fashion.

A review is an essay of variable length that explains why you did or did not care for the object of the review, in detail. I don't want to see "it sucked rocks!" I want to see "It sucked because it was out of character, riddled with typos, and made me want to beat the author with a stick."

I don't want to see "I have no opinion," I want to see "I have no idea what to say about this, because ..."

I don't want to see "This rocked!" I want to see "I loved the way the author..."

It's not so hard, but it has become rare just the same. That's why we're here.
