Welcome, my surely consummated Anime-Planetarian. Storytelling has been a prevalent form of art and commerce ever since the first inklings of imagination had bloomed forth from the progeny of our archaic brutes. Yes, from hieroglyphical accounts of primal sentients telling of their experiences in hunting and discovery, to what we have as of today--that is, a colorful amalgamation of modern, classic, contemporary, literature, really, an entire variegation of both fact and fiction. For this reason, the art of storytelling should know no boundaries in form or theme--in that, any aspect of life, or uncanniness, should be sought out and taken as a thoughtful creation.
Now, I could tell of what kind of stories are personally palatable, but I'd rather make a statement in regards to what shouldn't be done in storytelling; the disrespectuful pieces of work that some people feel the need to make--perhaps to vituperate the art in its entirety.
What I look for in a story is Thought and Consistency. When creating a story, the writer is also creating a life--and the creation of that life should have the dignity to allow of it a thorough study. Writing for the sake of escapism can only lead to unhealthy consciousness--rather, a story should be wirtten with thoughtful care, as to build a world that can support itself when analyzed. As long as an author keeps in mind the consistency of the story, any subject of the world and death may be touched upon.
Lastly, feel free to greet me with any topic you would enjoy discussing. And, remember: the theme of a story is not to be judged, for the judgment is only your personal opinion. If one is going to critique a story, do so by the consistency and skill of the author.

I recommend a reading of the books.
As lazy as I am, in regards to my profile, I have decided to impliment a ranking system.
Everyone else has one. Why should I remain deprived of a physical system for my silly rankings!?
About the stars:
0.5: The lowest of the low; a strong feeling of abhorrence is emitted from the story.
1.0: Akin to its lower predecessor; only, the story had some, small, redeemable aspect.
1.5: Still unworthy to be referred to as a proper story. However, a bit closer to "average."
2.0: Ah, honestly, more of an average rank, for me. Considering the fact that "average" is technically "below average."
2.5: Honestly, there needn't be any notable explanation for this particular ranking. For me, there is no legitimate difference between this and its lower standing.
3.0: Now, here we arrive upon the ascent to what is passable for "the real average."
3.5: The story must be well above average execution for it to become a candidate for this ranking.
4.0: Okay, anything which may reach the extent of this level of notablity, as well as any higher ranking, is executed properly. However, there are still multiple, faulty detriments within the story.
4.5: Yes! The penultimate of stars; the average of greatness! Mostly, if there is a singularly prominent problem with the story, I will adhere to this ranking. However, while this may blend, at times, with the step above, some of my favorite stories may be found happily here.
5.0: Finally, the consummate ideal of a story! Perfection in all of its proficiently accomplished glory! This must be the perfected story, right!? Wrong! Perfection, absolutely, does not exist. Nothing is perfect; nothing will ever be perfect. Actually, I will gladly give this ranking to a story that may have a singular fault; just as I may do with the ranking below it.
