OMFGZ he rated it low!!11|
Well yeah, please don't flame me like an idiot for this. There's this word called "opinion". People say the description was very "absorbing", but I didn't think so. You would have more rooms done if it wasn't for all the description at the start. Later on I could accept it but the beginning didn't draw me in due to the huge chunks of writing and genericness at the very beginning. Never personally been a fan of western things myself(again, opinion) and a horse got shot ;(
So yes, I'm probably going to be flamed to hell for this no matter what I say, but I'll say it anyway: it just wasn't MY thing.

||Jan 10, 2007||So well done, so much work put into it. Really a great story.|
||Jan 3, 2007||I know you've been waiting for this for a long time from me, (Must've even kept you up some nights!) so here's your 10 from me.|

Luckily for me, this was one of the first stories I discovered on this site. It actually made me willing to sift through the two-tons-of-crap stories in search of another tale like Paco Valdez.|
From the very first sentence, the narrative was incredibly absorbing. You really brought the scenes to life. My memory of the story is so visual, it's almost as if I'd seen it as a film.
This is a really unique accomplishment, and anyone who rates this story below an 8 should be ashamed of themselves. Or show us the Pulitzer they won.

I had intended to read this story after I read all of the rave reviews about it to see what all the fuss was about. I have to say it was excellent. I like your writing style and find it very easy to absorb. Your story was good and pulled me in without being to wordy or to brief. I normally don't like Westerns at all but this was compelling. My only criticism is that it is unfinished but it still definitely deserves a 10. If only I could rate it higher it would probably be an 11 or 12 (to offset the nines it was given)|
And Jesta what the hell was with that 8?

Okay, Everyone has been talking about this one, but I just haven't had the time or will (the whole western thing really turned me off) to read it for a long time. I finally decided I had to give in since so many people seem to rave about it. I pushed my dislike of Westerns aside and dove in...|
All I have to say up front is Wow. Impressive and well written. The detail, the feel, the language, the choices, etc. It all added up to a great story that is most definitely not for kids. Long rooms with strong writing and none of the "Choose a door" feel about the format at all. Even with the occasional change in authors, they mostly did a great job of keeping with the style and feel of the whole. Definitely deserving of the accolades and is one of the best things I have ever seen on this site.
I would give it a ten if it wasn't for my total dislike of Westerns (although I tried to keep this feeling to a minimum) and all the spelling and grammar errors (which I know I am guilty of as well, but I tend to use the edit button when I find them or are told of them, and actively ask for them to be pointed out if someone comments on them.). I tend to a tough sell when it comes to giving anything a top rating (no matter the subject or format), so this is high praise from me.
Keep up the great work and I hope to see more like this (perhaps not a Western next time) in the future.

Hey! I like this story thus far. You make a clear distinction between your different characters' personalities. You give the reader a nice description of the scenery, but perhaps you could expand a little more on this. |
Anyway, I hope to see it continued!

Jesus Almighty, I don't know what I expected from a guy called "donteatpoop", but the material was equivalent to a few choice chunks of gold in an otherwise dirt-filled miner's pan (that's really good, in case you're wondering).|
You know me, though: I can't completely overlook the fact that it was rife with spelling errors. Jeez, man - you can edit rooms for a REASON.

Dude, you HAVE to finish this story. It's beautiful. I feel any words I have can't do it justice. The options are thought out, the plot is GREAT, and every room is loaded with descriptive narration. |
And, unlike me, you really have a way with metaphors. One of your great strengths.
This one of the BEST stories to grace this sight. Keep it up.

Yes you are right this is your best. EVERY room is fully developed (that's a first for almost anyone, I know I don't do that), and I didn't even notice NCP was writing the part I was reading until I looked down, both your writing and his were near-perfect. I really can't say anything bad about the writing style, because again it was near-perfect, but you swear too much. Remember, there are younger people here, myself included.|
But I must congratulate you on one of the most classic lines ever coming from a male character: "He is not one to be fucked with."
||Jun 24, 2005||One of the best stories on the site for being a bunch of crap written by a talentless fool known as donteatpoop. A lot like the Dark Tower books.|
||Jun 23, 2005||
Some spelling errors, but overall this is a great story! It is very detailed and I know what the hell is going on! Please continue this story!|

||Jun 13, 2005||I gave it a ten because... OK I'll admit it. I'm cheating a little bit here. But I realy don't think it's that bad. It definatley beats the snot out of that 3rd eye crap I wrote.|
||Jun 12, 2005||This is a great story with really good content and story description that doesnt leave the reader wondering what the story is about. Yeeehaw!!|
