    Interesting plot with little to no holes. Unpredictability... relative fairness is strength and development

    Balance between all elements, proper pacing, character and plot development that isn't far fetched.

    I hate trite themes to be honest. It really depends what I'm reading those elements should strive in different stories.

    to say?

    A hero who dies at the end. Honestly, who wants to have a boring life after (for example) saving the world?

    Twists, good plot, an equal mix of characters, but between all this balance.

    Quite like some, not all of the main cast being killed off, depending on the setting.

    I like a Epilogue to see what has happened after the story is done.

    Plot twists.

    A cheaky wee betrayal every now and then.

    Throw in a Plot No Jutsu, but not to many.

    Proper character development.

    What a brilliant thread.

    The thing that has always compelled me to stories are characters. It's the characters I will watch something for. Even with a show as narratively messy as Naruto I remain obsessed with because of how good all the characters are. Characters are more important and interesting than any scenario or world you put them in, I try reflect this in the short films I make.

    A good MacGuffin, great characters, perhaps a different world and uniqueness.
