    What do you like to see in a story?

    Me? I like:

    Character Deaths
    Some Mush, emphasis on some
    Good Action, but not too much
    Cliffhangers and Suspense
    Character Torture to make me mad
    and Suprise Endings

    There can't be a good story without something really really bad happening to the main character. Yes, I am a sick little b*stard

    Humour is good too!

    Characters that you like is always a good start too. :D

    I like good characterization, writing that doesn't sound too child-like, suspense, touches of humour, gentle teasing, and especially seeing the main character overcome physical pain (won't say the T-word!) in order to do what has to be done.

    Build up in every catagory systematically. This creates a field of drama that is emcompassing and blanketing. You apply characterization to the plot, and therefore the plot and characters move along and make sense all around. I love humor during a tense moment, torture when it calls for it, and climatic endings that burn into your brain.

    Realism. If you can see it happening in a movie (or in life), then you're in good shape.
