Hi Josh. I am afraid your story was deleted because it is not up to the quality standards of the wiki. Ritual pastas are very hard to pull off, mainly because they are pretty generic. This is, unfortunately, not an exception. It just didn't have enough to make it stand out. The characters/villains/setting/build-up were all generic and lacked in depth and as a result the story was not good enough.
Your writing is solid though, so I am sure with practice and time you will improve greatly. You just need to try out more unique ideas, and eventually you will get there. I suggest you read stories found on Suggested Reading, to better understand what we are looking for in terms of quality. You can also read stories on my profile, under the "Favourite Stories" tab. They are stories I personally enjoy.
Please do not create categories. If you make a mistake in typing a category, click the pencil icon to edit or the garbage can icon to delete. There's no need to publish an edit with a non-existent category. See the Genre Listing page for rules about what categories can and cannot be added to pages together or by non-admin, and also for further descriptions of all our existing categories. If you are confused as to how categories on Wikia are supposed to work, please see the help page on categories. The first offense for this is a warning, but the second offense will result in a 1 (one) day block per the category rules.
If you feel your new category should be added to this list, leave a message on ClericofMadness's talk page stating your proposed category and reasons for its inclusion. It must, though, be applicable to at LEAST 10 (ten) existing pages to be considered.
