Reviews by Lenal
Ash "the Flash" Johnson was an average kid. Went to school, played football, wanted to get into a career writing webcomics and teaching history eventually. His daily routine consisted of getting up, getting dressed going to school, and going home. He was so entrenched in his routine that there were some things he simply didn't notice.

I'm really enjoying this story, and very interested in seeing where it goes. There's a lot to like here, from the slow burn and unconventional order of the transformation (beginning with jewelry and nail polish isn't something I've really seen before in TG stories) to the unclear extent of the changes (is Grant affected? What about Wheeler?) to the interesting parallel with real-life TG fiction/webcomic authors who slowly realize that they're not actually cis after all. I'm eagerly awaiting Chapter 4!

Author's Response: In the original version of this story, the transformation started with shoes, none of the side characters aside from Laurie were fleshed out, Ash wasn't a football player and the story was overall just less detailed. I love this story and feel like I'm taking my time with it because it represents my growth as a writer, to some extent.

This is the first Mixed Tape collection I've read, though I've often seen them posted and just never made the dive. I really enjoyed the whole collection. The framing story is fun, and "Someone's In the Library" is an intriguing look into a series I should check out. "My Sister, The Prophet" is one of the most original TG stories I can remember reading, and I love the worldbuilding it does and the slow burn toward figuring out what's going on. "Exploit" and "Loot Box" play with similar themes, but in very different ways and tones, and I liked what they each brought to the table. "Awakening Venus" had an interesting twist with its protagonist; often the stars of these stories are either entirely reluctant or knowingly a girl all along, and I liked that the character was kind of unaware of their own identity. The world of the "Forgotten" stories is interesting to me as a fan of superheroes, and I'm interested to see what happens in future installments. Great job, everyone!

Taylor and Leslie are going on vacation, but all their parents will say is that it's nowhere they've ever been before -- and that it's "going to be the biggest surprise of your lives"

I really enjoyed this story. It put some interesting twists on the typical TG bodyswap tale, and I like that it focused more on the fish-out-of-water social dynamics than the physical sensations of being a different sex. The characters are interesting and well-realized, as are the different societies. I think the only change I might have made in this circumstance would have been to make the morality of the conflict with the Garuda less clear-cut in the end. It might have been interesting to see Leslie trying to break Serenikha out of her people's propaganda, though that would have shifted the focus and extended the ending. Either way, I'm excited to read the sequel!

Two cursed individuals realise that everything happens for a reason.

A sweet little story with a clever confluence of curses, though it probably could use a little more proofreading.

What a cute, sweet, vivid story. It speaks to a larger world that I wouldn't mind living in :).

A young man tries to get his ideal body by angering the resident witch into cursing him - only to discover his ideal body wasn't what he was expecting.

This was a great, sweet little story, and a nice twist on a number of common TG story tropes. I appreciate especially that neither the witch nor the chauvinist was the black-and-white caricature that they typically end up being in such stories, including ones I've written :).

The Spells 'R' Us Wizard is being sued, and he doesn't take too kindly to it. Can you help a private investigator make sense of the aftermath?
