Hello there. =]
You've [probably stumbled] come across the author page of Caitlin. I'm a fourteen-year-old Australian Ravenclaw who spends a lot of her time reading, writing, listening to music, playing guitar and piano, being on her computer and swooning over Edward Cullen [and Rob Pattinson, on occasion :D][ETA March 2009: How about we reverse that last sentence, yeah? Swooning over Rob, occasionally Edward. >.>].
My first big love is Harry Potter, of course, shortly followed by Twilight, and music, too.
Friends and family come first in my life, and I don't know what I'd do without them.
Within the fandom, I adore Romance, and ship canon... and Dramione [yeah, yeah, weird, I know...]. I also love Poetry, and have developed a love for Next-Gen. :)
I love to watch Top Gear, Spicks and Specks, The Hollowmen, Rove, Packed to the Rafters, Good News Week and Grey's Anatomy. And yes, I know most people would have only heard of one, maybe two of those shows. XD
I love music, and listen to a lot rock and alternative, but nothing too heavy. [Metal = blergh]. However, my taste goes from the electro-pop stuff they play on the radio, to the stuff of genius created by Muse and Paramore. :D Said bands are my two favourite in the world.
I have LJ, AIM, and MSN, so if you like the same things as me or just want to make a new friend, add me, or drop me a PM on the forums, because my inbox is always open. :)
Oh, Schmergo! Wow wow wow wow wow! Sooo funny... You made me laugh. A lot. Of course! *hops back to Schmergo's author page to read more of her splendiferous fics* :D
Author's Response: AWww, thank you, Caitlin! You always make me smile.
Wow. I've read what you have of the sequel already, and this first part was great! Yay! Draco and Hermione are really in character, and the ship is really believable! I loved it!
Author's Response: Thank you very much for your kind words! I really try to keep people in character, especially interesting ones like Draco and Hermione so it is nice to know that I have suceeded.
Well done, Ema! It was a very well-written story and intrigued me right to the end. Can't wait to see more of your work soon!
Author's Response: Thanks. :) As you probably know by now (I PMed you about it) I won\'t be doing a lot more writting for here in the near future. But maybe I\'ll come back to it. Thanks for your support. \r\n\r\n-Ema
They're amazing Roxy! I especially love James' Poem -- it's beautifully written! I loved them!
Roxy! Such an amzing poet -- I loved it! It has great rhythm, like Sammy said. More more more!
Woah. I. Loved. It. I hope you're planing a sequel!!
Wow, Hannah! I don't normally read any other Hermione pairings except RW/HG and DM/HG, but this was fantastic! Your characterisation of all was great. =] I loved it! Keep the great writing up. =]
Author's Response: Thanks, Caitlin. I\'m working on developing a chaptered George/Hermione, maybe based off my gauntlet. *hugs*
Ooh, I love it! Can't wait for more...
Sounds like an interesting story, interesting plotline, interesting everything!
Author's Response: I\'m glad you love it so much. I just wish I could get it updated faster so everyone could have a better idea of the plot!
I don't know what to say! No words can describe it! Wow wow wow wow wow wow!!!!!!
Alternate Universe can be tricky, but it was really creative and a really cute story. Well done!
Author's Response: Tehe, thankyou! It\'s my first ever AU fic and I did try hard not to cross the line between creativity and being over the top. Thanks for the encouraging review, you\'ve made my day!
First review? Phily, this deserves heaps of them! Wow, wow ,wow! I loved it from the first time I read it! :D Sad, but beautiful...
Author's Response: Thank you! And thanks for all your help! :) First review for first beta job? Sounds good! I will be back if I get time to write some more! Phily :)
Wow, Sarah! That was amazing! I've never read any Ron/Luna, but that was fantastic! Beautifully written, extremely romantic. Well done!
Hannah! I loved this fic of yours! Thanks for letting me know about it. =] I, like Chante', know who the OC is, but I can see why you would think it is Ginny too. Then again, that why it's in Harry/OC, right? =P
Your characterisation was great, and it was a very nice fic -- I hope you write more on this pairing ;-)
Arya! :D :D :D You never told me it'd been validated, you archived author, you! =]
Absolutely stunning Prologue -- I'm definitely hooked! Your characterisation of a young Tom is fantastic -- you obviously have thought about his character and you've got it spot on!
I love the legend of the Kalinag too -- it's a great touch and adds even MORE interest into the story!
Brilliant start -- can't wait for the first chapter!
P.S. You're Indian? I never knew! Awesome! =]
Author's Response: *blushes* Thanks!! I thought I\'d told you...thanks for the wonderful compliments...:D I was worried mostly about characterization, but well, now I\'m reassured *squishee*....I\'ve already submitted it to the queue...:D \r\n\r\nI thought you knew I\'m Indian!! LOL, Well, I am!!:D:D *huggles*
Arya! =D An absolutely fantastic first chapter! If I wasn't totally hooked before (which I was) I most definitely am now! I know that might not make a lot of sense, but what I'm trying to say is... I love love LOVE your writing, and your fic so far! Can't wait 'till the next chapter is up!
Author's Response: Hello, Madam Faithful Reviewer!!! I\'m flattered!!! The second chapter is in beta-ing, so it\'ll take a while-two or three days, maybe, which would mean a total of ten days ;)...you\'ll just have to bear with us [me, Tom, and Anupama] in the meantime!! :D :D :D *huggles*
*is shocked* Arya! I didn't know you had another fic up! *loves* It's so good! I love this plot -- so very original. I agree: Ced needs a bit more love! *hugs* I LOVED this, and can't wait fro your next update... on both of your wonderful fics! =D
Author's Response: Lol...that\'s me, modest old Arya! ;) Thanks!! I know that the other fic is taking some time, but I think something is up with my beta...she\'s not sent it back... :(....I\'ll update this one ASAP! I\'m writing the second chapter, and I hope it will be up soon! =D *huggles*
Sammy!!!! =D Oh. Mygosh! All hail the co-queen of Sev/Lily! :P Sammy, that was a-maaazing! I haven't read much SS/LE besides your drabbles, and this was so cute, so sweet... I'm pretty much converted! =D Little Lily was so sweet (quick question -- why a Lily junior? To make us think it's Harry and Ginny's Lily?)! Sev was of course IC -- I wouldn't expect any less from you!
All in all, a stunning one-shot and fantastic take on the contest prompt!
P.S. Did you notice I'm your fourteenth review again? =D
Author's Response: Caitlin, saving authors from the unlucky 13.:D Thanks for the review love, you are as sweet as ever. *squishes* Actually no, I didn\'t mean to confuzzle anyone. I always imagined Sev and Lily would have a daughter called Lily. And YAY, you\'re one of us now.:)=Sammy
Nice new fic you've got there, Hannah! :D It's very interesting; not an AU theory I've ever really considered. I loved it! :)
Author's Response: Now everyone can see my joy of writing AU. It seems everything I write turns out that way too. :]
When Salazar Slytherin left Hogwarts, it deeply affected every one of the other Founders.
But one was affected more deeply than the rest.
Alone now, Rowena Ravenclaw grieve.
Who, Salazar, who, can mend Rowena's shattered heart?
A short poem full of creative imagery.
:O Phia, my dear! I bow down to your poetry prowess! I love this. A lot. It's very sad, and dark, and the language you've used simply blows me away. It's a wonderful poem! I really need to check your author page more often. o.o
Wow! :) I absolutely loved this! As a fellow 'Claw, I'm giving you a Turnip hug. :D
I love the sarcasm (I use it a lot >.>), the silliness, the randomness and the absurdity. Why couldn't I have though of an absloutely brilliant idea like this? :D
I can't wait for updates! :)
Ha HA! Turnipclaws of the world, unite! Thank you for reviewing and enjoying this story, Caitlin. There’s going to be a lot more silliness, randomness, and absurdity to follow in the next seven chapters, so stay tuned for the updates!
Oh yes, and good luck on any stories you happen to be writing. Rah Rah Ravenclaw!

This was originally written for the Summer 2008 MWPP class final. This is harry4lif from the forums.
Alyssa, darlin', that was a wonderful fic. :) I love your characterisation of Sirius and Peter, and the way you've interpreted the story from Sirius' POV.
Overall, well done! :D
Author's Response: Thanks, Caitlin! Glad you liked it!
