Fresca, Love, most awesome beta, can you help me again? I have already had this go through 2 betas and Andrea told me I still had some grammatical errors (I can send you her PM) . It is for an in-house challange and I need it back like, yesterday :eek: . It has to be through her special que by the 20th. (This is all she is taking an reading them first). Would you have time to give it a very fast look? I still have your email if you say yes.
Story Title: The Guardian
Genre: umm, well it is while Sirius is hiding out after PoA
Rating: I say above 3rd only because there is a tiny bit of violence
Warning:as said above tiny bit of violence (it is an erkling attack)
Average word count per chapter: 6704
One-shot or Chaptered:One shot
Track Changes or Color:whatever is fatest.
Reason you want a beta reader: I need another pair of eyes to spot my grammatical errors. I tried to catch as many as Andrea pointed out and then some but I just want to make sure. Andrea siad, "I really hate rejecting this because the story is fabulous! Your characterizations are excellent, the plot is completely immersive, and descriptions build a wonderful atmosphere." It's just thos darn commas and semicolans that are getting me.
Summary: Three muggle children wonder of from a Castle tour in Germany and end up lost in the Black Forest. At the same time, Sirius is hiding out in said woods. He hears about the children and goes to look for them and accidentaly attracts an Erkling (this is the violence part). He then helps the children, (along with a few other mythical creatures) get out of the woods. It has a happy ending since the kids are modeled after my own.
I don't have much time to be on the boards today and am frantically typing this during lunch. I will check back as much as I can for a response. I might get it faster if you email me since I can check my phone for those. Hopefully you still have it, if not there is a link on my profile page (of course you knew that but, well, I'm hurrying:p )
Kristy: Sure, dear. I'll try to find your email address but I doubt that I have it. I can have it back pretty fast.
I will send it now. I forgot that I could subscribe to email notification so when you replied I got a message on my phone. :D
I will be home for a few minutes then I'm off to soccer practice, again. :rolleyes:
Kristy: Yes, that's right. Please edit your post - I do not want my email address (or any part of it) public information.
Edit: Thank you! :)
Carrot: Okay, sounds good. Email it to me. Are you still writing the other piece you requested me for?
Have you got time for a drabble?

Salutations. I'm a relatively inexperienced author who thought he could go it alone. Alas, having been slapped with a 100% rejection rate, I have been humbled and am requesting aid. I would be thrilled if you could take a gander.

Thanks for your time!
angelicxdiscord: I'm willing to give this story a try, but beta reading long chapters in color is going to be a very trying experience. When you send the story, please also send the rejection letter so I can take a look at it.
Thanks for considering this..
UserName: Tcole on both
Story: The Noble and Most Ancient House of ... Nevermind.
Genre: Ummm.. i have no idea what this would be under lol
Ships: Hm.. I don't think there will be any in this story that will be important
Rating and Warnings: None as of right now
Word Count per chapter: 1848 as of right now... I think it may stay that way...
One Shot or Chaptered: Chaptered.
Expected Beta Time: Eh, doesn't matter to me.. I know it will be worth the wait
Permanent Y/N: For this story if you'd like.. It's up to you, love
Reason you would most like my services: I suck at commas. Lol. And I don't really describe things too well, even though Emma said I'm actually pretty good at it. lol.
Eh, this story is basically just everything about Sirius' life. Like, how he came to be so different from the rest of the Black family.. There may be some things in there about how Walburga felt when she became pregnant with her first son and some things like that... It may get into more detail about Walburga and Sirius' relationship, and Orion and Sirius' relationship.. and of course.. Regulus and Sirius' relationship.
I suck at summaries.. But I haven't tried to sit down and think of one yet.. So I basically just described to you what I plan on doing with the story. Lol. I hope that's alright, love.
