Re: Story

The story was deleted for not being up to quality standards. Starting with the basics, dialogue needs to be spaced out so two speakers are never on the same line. "Ross asked Sam, "So, did you get your report card?" The red haired boy said, "Yep, here you go."" This can confuse the readers and make it difficult to know who's saying what.

Capitalization issues: "30 (Thirty) minutes later...", "10 (Ten)?", "14 (Fourteen), Mom."", etc The first word in a sentence needs to be capitalize so numbers starting sentences have to be written out.

Story issues: "His father says he wants the kid on death row." I know you're trying to establish the father's character, but teenagers can't be put on death row. Also families' insistence on whether or not someone is jailed permanently or subjected to the death penalty has no bearings. There isn't much character development here and the story feels very rushed. The protagonist goes from being beaten up to brutally/pointlessly murdering his mom without any real explanation.

Story issues: I'd really suggest avoid references to Slenderman as it violates our spinoff rules ("pale man with a blank face and a black suit staring down at him.") Additionally I would look over this guide as it points out a lot of issues with OC/CPCs that tend to get your story deleted. (Cartoonishly evil parents, bullies, protagonist snaps for little to no reason, naming themselves, generic threats/dialogue, etc.)

Re: Extension Hook

It's our filter to catch spam or stories that violate our rules. Your story can't have punctuation in the title or content that violates the blacklist. Please note that you cannot re-upload a story without doing a deletion appeal and from reading what you're trying to upload, it is not up to our quality standards (punctuation, capitalization, format, story issues, etc.) Uploading it will result in it being deleted and a possible 1 day ban.
