As part of The Review Project I went around dA leaving writers I greatly admire and am constantly inspired by, some tiny reviews.
Here they are all gathered up as a feature. Please, if you have the time take a look at a gallery or two (if not all of them) or fav to save for later! If I have time, I'll try and add one of my favorite deviations of theirs but for now y'all will have to do the exploring.
