Sure, I'd love to take it. Send it whenever you like.
And, to everyone else, I am, once again, sadly Unavailable. Homework, homework, homework. *grumbles*
Eh, I guess I'll take it... Since you kind of already sent it... and you asked me to do it forever ago... But, still, to everyone else,
(P.S. Elene, I am looking forward to much more from you. Permanent = awesome. )
EDIT: The jumping curse has struck again!
EDIT number two: I am, for a few days at least, once again,

Summary: When the Marcus family's world falls apart, Adelaide is sure she has it the worst. Her brother is as good as dead, and her family is treating her like an outcast.

Genre: historical but with D/A elements/atmosphere woven throughout

Rating and Warnings: 3rd-5th years; Violence, Character’s Death
Word Count: around 5,000 per chapter as I tend to be wordy
One Shot or Chaptered: chaptered
Expected Beta Time: within a week per chapter if possible
Is It a Competition Entry, Y/N: no, but seeing that I need the first two chapters up to continue with the story for my D/A class, it would be great if it didn't take too long to beta it
Permanent Y/N: for that story it would be nice
Summary: (still subject to alterations)
The Style You would like Me to Beta your Fic in: Definitely honest. I want you to tell me straight away if you think something doesn't work. But some gentleness in truth can never hurt. I won't run away screaming and crying if you're direct, but I've been working on this story for so long already and am quite attached to it that I think brutal honesty will kill my muse.Magic is only as strong as your heart is…
Fire, Earth, Wind and Water – these four natural forces were once part of an ancient magic that only few possessed. Over the time those wielders got fewer. But this special magic retreats even further, and the founders’ offspring are no longer in the ancient magic’s possession. Has it died out? Is the ancient magic condemned to diminish?
… and your heart is only as strong as you want it to be.
Anything in Particular You want Me to Watch out for? Sentence structure, commas and language (as in "Is this language too modern or fitting for the time period?")
And lastly, any Additional Comments? Again, thanks a lot for wanting to take this on. I'm now finally done with chapter one of part one and could send it over as soon as you're ready.
We'll give it a try, shall we? I'll send you my email address momentarily.
It's Thanksgiving break, I've no homework - BETA TIME! But, for now, please no more requests. I am declaring myself,Unavailable.
I have a potential assignment for you!
Story: Snape Didn't Die

Word Count: Around 7000 words
One Shot or Chaptered: Chapter
Expected Beta Time: One week, or sooner would be nicer
Permanent Y/N: Possibly
Summary: Snape didn't die, he simply joined the Witness Relocation Program. A funny slogan for an avatar, but what if some crazed author somewhere decided to write the story behind it?
On the run from all those who would want to see his head on a platter, Severus Snape is put through a series of tests. But between scantily-clad Ministry agents, seeing-eye elves, and an all-witch school and all the drama that goes along with it, he is beginning to wonder how much worse the alternative would really be
I have a sad announcement, dearies. I am writing this via my phone because the internet on my computer is not working. This means that, until we get it working again (hopefully later today, possibly not until late Monday) I shall be unable to beta your beautiful requests. I feel awful about this. If you want to get different betas, I completely understand. But if you are patient, I would love to beta your stories as soon as my internet resumes. Manda and Jenn, I have already finished beta-ing what you both sent me. I hope that, since neither of your stories are challenge/compitition entries, that you'll both be patient. Posting on my phone is laborious, so I shan't be posting more until I can use my laptop. This post has already taken 30 minutes. Again, I am so sorry.
