Hello, I'm Caroline. I am a returning beta, who took a loooooong break from the forums. If you knew me before, I apologize. But I am older now, with more experience and knowledge. I am back, starting fresh, and ready to be here!
Availability: Aside from theatre classes on Thursdays and Fridays, I have virtually no social life. After school, I am usually very available. As long as we are in a similar time zone, and I don't receive on Thursday/Friday, I can nearly guarantee same-day turnaround on drabbles, poems, and chapters around 1,000 words or less. 1,200 words and up may take longer, so give me at least three days on those. That being said, this depends on when I receive your story, and how much work it needs. Very rarely will I need a week or more.
Strengths: I have been writing Harry Potter fanfiction since I was eleven, so I have a strong grasp on characters and canon. I am well-accustomed to naming OC's and creating realistic dialogue. On a lesser note, I have improved massively in punctuation.
Weaknesses: I am a perpetual sugar coater who uses too many commas. I am American so while I can Britpick decently, I am in no means an expert.
Preferred Categories: General, Dark/Angst, and Romance. No historical or mystery, please!
Preferred Sub-Categories: Marauder era, Post-Hogwarts, and Poetry. I will do Next-Generation, but on a case-by-case basis.
Preferred Genres: My favorites are tragedy and romance. Comedy, AU, and action are on a case-by-case basis. I absolutely will not do mystery or historical.
Preferred Pairings: I am a sucker for rare-pairs. I will do any pairing you'd like, really. However, I am a little apprehensive about student/teacher, if the student is still a minor. If this is the case, I will take your story on a case-by-case basis.
Categories I Won't Do: As I said before, mystery and historical.
Sub-Categories I Won't Do: I don't think there really is anything.
Genres I Won't Do: See 'Catagories I Won't Do.'
Pairings I Won't Do: Most student/teacher. PM me if one will be in your story.
Ratings/Warnings I Will Do: All, but case-by-case basis for student/teacher and AU.
Ratings/Warnings I Won't Do: My only apprehension is for mental disorders. PLEASE do your research. Real research. That said, if you'd like, I can help with research topics for almost anything.
If you would like me to work on your story, post a completed form here. I will PM you with my decision on whether or not I accept.
