Update Schedule

There was once an update schedule. It lived a good life, a peaceful life. A quiet life. But then... things began to change. It became more and more erratic, sometimes completely disobeying its very reason for existance. And at last, the update schedule could take no more. It cast off its chains and went free, seeking new lands where it would be appreciated. This message it left where once it had lived, to warn other schedules of the peril.

Review: Dorothy Must Die

Dorothy Must Die Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Fine piece of fanfiction. Really, I applaud. 5 stars. Except someone published it.

Beginning was fine. The Oz characters don't act like they're Oz characters, though, and the timeline's uncertain. Also it's all a setup for a series, which is not cool. In the moments where the author had a cool idea and was a decent writer, it was fine. But the reason it was fine was that all the imagining had already been done. As long as it was just fanfiction, it was silly rather than bad.
But the author can't make up her mind. Book or movie? Sequels or not? She goes back and forth, switching backstories and then hastily backpedaling.
And this is the most incomprehensible review I've ever written. I'm going to stop trying and go get some sleep and water.
