Okay, since I have nothing to do this summer and know how hard it is to get reviews on your work, I'm offering to give free feedback out to all my fellow Teen Inkers. I'm doing this partly because I think people should start doing more serious reviews and thinking about things from a review rather than a writer. Reviewing people's work like reading make you a better writer because it teaches you what to look for in your own writing and untlimately improve your skills. If you focus on giving someone a quality review then it helps even in the end even if it feels like you doing something challenging without any pay off. Anyway...
Like anything there are some rules... PLEASE READ ALL OF THEM AND COMPLY OR I WILL NOT READ ANYTHING! Okay so here there are:
1.MOST IMPORTANT RULE:  BEWARE I HAVE A LIMIT OF 20 STORIES! I can ONLY do 20 pieces no more no less. So basically this is a FIRST COME FIRST SERVE type of deal. You state what you want me to read and I do it but if you are the 21st person I'm SORRY I can't get to you. The reason for this is so that I'm not swamped with stories and never get to do anything else.
2. No novels please. Everything else is accepted including poetry heck even artwork.
3. Only one piece per person please
4. Another thing when you tell me what you want me to read tell me what number you are. For example if I'm the first one to reply and request my work to be read I would say something like "1. Can you look at blah blah blah..." This so I can keep track of how many request there are. Please do this or you will NOT BE READ.
5. This is the least important rule and not required. But if you could please take a look at any of my own that would be great.
I don't mean to sound harsh or strict just want to put those guidlines in place. So bring me your work and I'll start reviewing!(:

EDIT: I'm Number 1, if it's really that necessary

Novel discrimination... I see it everywhere.
 
Well, I have a prologue of a novel typed up in a written article, so if you want to read that, go ahead. I'd also accept just reading 1 chapter of any other novel on my profile, but if that's too much of a stretch, just go with the article.
 
My preference of pieces in order:
City of the Doomed (this is the longest one, 1 chapter is recommended)
Death Pact (not recommended unless you can read the whole thing, because you'll be missng out on a lot of good plot)
RWA Anthology (not recommended unless you can understand things based on vague implications)
Darkest Shadow (it's unrefined compared to the other ones, but I've recieved one positive comment on it)

15. Could you just read this and give me some advice on what I should turn it into? I don't know if I should do a poem or a short story or just ditch it.
The Star Named Eli
Swirling white brushstrokes elegantly danced across the dark sky, blanketing the sleepy Earth below. Trees stayed still as fireflies twisted between the branches, and owls quietly kept to themselves amongst the bare limbs. The barren forest was slightly kept undercover by a small sheet of snow, and some houses were lit inside. I could see inside the brightly lit homes the families with mugs of steaming cocoa snug between their hands.
Snug. That was the word. All of the people, inside and out, were all incredibly snug, whether in a warm, woolen sweater or a billowy winter coat. And here I was, the Star named Eli, millions of miles away from anything or anyone, put into this cold galaxy by God, far from even the slightest feeling of snug. For thousands of years I’ve been watching this strange planet called Earth, and since the first day I gazed upon it with its people gazing back at me, it has completely and utterly engaged my curiosity.
