Marty Robbins' "Big Iron" was playing in the background as I was reading this, and it seemed fitting in a way. I suspect most if not animals listed here are from actual folkloric traditions, and that adds to the piece in a multitude of ways. I don't know what a Margrawn is, but the story provided enough context clues that a casual reader wouldn't have to look it up. Part of me suspects that a certain gentlemanly slug would have some thoughts to voice on this story, and while some may find the subject unsavory, it does evoke a solid feeling of Victorian explorers with too much money hunting angry, dangerous beasts. I'd like to read more stories written by the in-universe author.

And thus concludes our first week (more or less) of reviews! I think I'll take a break for the weekend and resume on Monday.

I'll be honest, I had no clue there'd be such a need for so many violence warnings when I started this journey, and I'm not even a full week's worth of reviews into it. That being said, this is an interesting exploration into the damages caused by excess by those in power. I do feel as though this story would benefit from more imagery, but it maintains a consistent tone and tells a short, powerful fable. The fact that the embodiment of a currency, a literal god of money, is a dragon is quite fitting. Overall, much like virtually every story reviewed so far, worth five minutes of a reader's time, if a little ham-handed.

I'm ambivalent about expressing steadfast support of this one. I personally like it, but I've got a twisted sense of humor, perhaps just the right sort of twisted to find this funny. It does suffer to some degree from a lack of context, but I'm not sure what, if anything, could be done to rectify that. It's certainly not genre-defining horror, but it is good, short popcorn horror. Overall, a good piece if you wanna kill five minutes to read a bizarro conspiracy theory within the Foundationverse's shared setting.

This site is quite full of pleasant surprises. This story did an excellent job quietly worldbuilding, and fits with my headcanon of a certain SCPverse blood cult. Contrary to my usual remarks, I'm not sure its brevity is to its benefit, but it does seem to capture that campfire story/folk tale vibe it was going for. I certainly feel it deserves more attention, and I'm glad I'll be providing some of that. Not sure how it fits into any continuity over here (or if there's any continuity here at all) but a solid, creepy, Grimm (as in, the Brothers) vignette.

Since i'm someone who hates, having secrets on a page without, knowing about them, I would like to kindly mention to anyone reading this to check the page source.

A recurring theme here, in this series so far, is brevity; as with the first two entries, this story is quite short. And as with the previous two entries, I can't help but sense this is part of something greater. However, I also get the distinct feeling this was tailor made to seem complete by itself, a characteristic that may not be to its benefit. I find it curious that it's a story about war, but is the first story in this series not to require a content warning. Overall, good imagery and exactly the sort of poetic prose I was hoping for when starting these reviews.

That has a nice theme/core idea but it doesn't deliver much. You should expand on the idea more of examples of gods or actions they do. For an example your story seems very similar to this other one from the library.

A difference is though they run with the idea and tell the story of one of those figures. I think you can do it as well though, keep working at it! <3

Beautiful and ethereal, I really loved this.

I didn't realize this site had such graphic depictions of violence (there's your warning, if you required such). It's interesting to see such patently SCPverse writing here; I clearly misunderstood this site on multiple levels. That being said, I feel this stands on its own, devoid of Foundationverse context. Looking through the discussion, it's clear this is part of a larger continuity, but it doesn't have to be. If this were a more extensive review, I'd point out some typos, but overall this receives my stamp of approval.

Hello!

This was a great story. I really enjoyed it and the centering of it on standing up for yourself and others, along with personal accountability made it an excellent message as well. I feel like we as individuals don't address that idea enough especially in our current times. Keep up the good work! <3

So I'll just explain what all this is about, why I'm here, in this post, because I am really not all that active here and honestly know virtually nothing about this wiki.

My ideas for writing have been tilting more towards fantasy or science fantasy than sci-fi lately, and I feel like my sci-fi is best placed on the SCP wiki. More than that, I've known about this site for a while and, because it's quite quiet, I suspect it'll be easier to follow than the SCP wiki's newfound breakneck pace. I want to help this site grow until I can get back into "true" SCP universe stuff. To serve this goal, I've decided to write a 5-sentence review of a random work on this site every day until I can no longer keep up the pace. This was the first piece to pop up when I hit the random page button, so this is as good a place to start as any. With the exposition out of the way, let's get to it.

There's a lot to take in here. I suspect this features established characters, but it does a good job expositing without relying on their outer backstory (if there is any). The protagonist/narrator's inner monologue is a solid depiction of what I know many abuse victims go through (at this point, I will go ahead and warn readers of this review that this story involves abuse). The story is quite brief, much to its benefit; I'd assumed, considering where this story was posted, that it would contain some paranormal element, but it doesn't, which is also to its benefit. Overall, a good place to start this review series (and hopefully, a good measure of the Wanderer's Library's quality), though not necessarily a good introduction to the Wanderer's Library overall.

Hello! I wrote another really quick story. If anyone is interested enjoy and leave some feedback on what you liked/disliked. Good luck to you all and enjoy <3

This was actually pretty creepy. I was a little put off by the format of the date entries, but I grew into it after a few lines. There are a few spellings here and there but overall I thought it was good. I liked the depth you decided to go with the life-linked library cards, it was some nice world building. You were able to really twist the horror of the library into a dangerous environment. Good job, and keep up the writing.
