A very nice beginning, and I'm looking forward to reading more.

Author's Response: Thanks! Hope you enjoy(ed) what you read. Or at least, hope it wasn't too rough. =)

Many of my wants were fulfilled by a strange chalice found within the Maze, but many more problems arise due to the power it grants and the world it opens.

This story is head and shoulders above most of the work on the site, and I can't wait to read more of your work.

Author's Response: Wow. Thanks. A head too? I would've settled with just shoulders above the rest. I'm working on a bit of catching up on a certain story for a while, then I'll make sure to come back around soon enough.

Sometimes you want to be someone else but lack the will to change. Wouldn't it be easy if you could change who you are with just the press of a button? Fortunately a melding God has decided to create a device that does just that, but the power comes with great risk as in the wrongs hands it could ruin your life.

I'm really enjoying where this is going and can't wait to read more.

If you were a brilliant female scientist who had been grievously mistreated by a man, You'd probably want to teach him a lesson as revenge. But what if the man who wronged you was now dead? You take out your bitterness on a substitute (or substitutes).

Love it!

An 18 year old just out of high school gets the opportunity of a lifetime, well sort of. He signs a contract without looking at it and ends up in a virtual... Paradise?

This is a great blend of genres, and I'm excited to read more. That being said, the lack of spaces in between paragraphs makes it easy to get lost sometimes.

Author's Response: Thank you for the review! Currently most authors on the site put a break between every sentence and I am generally doing it every 3-5 sentences, so I was already considering breaking up the story a bit more. I will do an experiment in the next chapter to see how well it works compared to my current method, but thank you for the suggestion!

A petite young man marries a beautiful woman who is absolutely out of his league. His parents think she's just in it for their fortune. What will happen when the groom starts to become prettier than the bride?

There are a couple of grammatical issues that pulled me out of a moment, but you did a good job of capturing the voice of Jaleh. Nicely done.

Author's Response: So frustrating when I find those! I proof twice but sometimes miss typos, wrong auto-corrects or missed words. Hopefully, it doesn't happen too often! Glad you liked it.

A boy possesses a wand that lets him bend reality to his will. After giving in to some very base desires, he realizes he has a very personal journey in front of him. He won't make it alone.

Any chance you can put some spaces between your paragraphs? I really like what you're writing, but it gets hard to follow.

Author's Response: sure thing. Its a formatting problem when I post the story
