Hello everyone! Fellow wanderess witch here :hat:

As an avid reader, this is probably the best excuse ever to read all your lovely stories. I can't wait to get started and to shower you with love and attention :wub:

✤ ✤ ✤

What I'm looking for:

I'm hoping to read fantastic stories, with interesting plots and well fleshed out plots and characters, as I'm sure all your stories will be. I'm not afraid of slowburns or long works of fiction (I yearn for them, really), and the more intriguing the story overall, the better. That said, I like the simplicity of short stories as well, so for anything I'm your gal. (Merlin, was that cheesy :couch:

✤ ✤ ✤

What you can expect:

I like to think I'm particularly good in finding plot holes and analysing the construction and flow of the plot (and subplots) overall, so you can expect my review to partly rely on characterization and plot analysis. I'll also gush about everything I've loved and let you know of the things that didn't work so well for me and why. I'll try my best to give you the constructive criticism I look for in my own readers, and I might sometimes tell you in detail how passages of your story made me fuzy inside, should I have a case of them feels. If there's any particular feedback you're looking for, I'll try my best to give it to you as well. I'll also let you know how I felt about your writing in general and if there's anything that might help you improve it, should that be the case :harry:

✤ ✤ ✤

Preferences & Review info:

I'd like to review HP stories, preferably centered on the Next-Gen and Golden Trio eras, although I wouldn't mind Marauders as well. Original fiction is also fair game. As for other fandoms, if I know of them then I'm open to it. Just make sure to DM me first so I can tell you if I know of the fandom you write for and if I can accept your request.

As for genres, I'm good for anything, whether it's romance or a thriller or crime fiction or drama. I accept all ratings. I eat it all up. If any warnings/advisories are a no for me, I'll make sure to message you. I'll accept most pairings, even if I'm not too familiar with them/don't ship them. So long as the story is good, I'll probably get so immersed in it it won't really matter ^_^ still, the same way, if they don't work for me I'll let you know.

I'll review anywhere you prefer, but I'd prefer to do it on the HPFT Archive. I'll start with 2 slots for requests to see how it goes since this is my first time setting something like this up, and as I'm a busy bee (full-time worker and college student), I'll set a limit of one week to review your work (although truth be told, it'll probably take me much less if the story is engaging and I can't put it down!). And please, one request per author at a time.

If you'd like me to review a multichaptered story, I'll commit to two chapters at a time (as soon as I'm done feel free to grab the next open slot :P). If we're talking one-shots, I'll accept up to 25k words for that one week period. If your one-shot turns out to be longer, I'll let you know if I can review it on time or if it'll take me a few more days, depending on my RL schedule. If your story is still a WIP, I'll likely become one of your faithful readers/reviewers and motivate you to keep going and cheer you on :yay:

I'll try and stop by the forums everyday, but if for some reason 7 days have passed and you haven't heard from me, feel free to drop me a DM and call me out!

I'd love it if you were to reply to my review! Iit will help become a better reviewer and will strengthen, I believe, the author/reader relationship we're all looking for. Sometimes great connections come from something as simple as this, and we're all here to have some fun 9_9

✤ ✤ ✤

If you're still with me, kudos to you! Merlin knows I like to write a lot :whistling:

I can't wait to hear from you and start reading all your wonderful works! If you're interested, please fill in the following form so I can start worshipping your wonderful words:

Story and Author Name, including link
Fandom/Era:
Warnings and Advisories
Genre
Length
Summary
Ships
Areas of Concern (if any)

 

Lets get this party started! look forward to hear from you all :hug:

Not sure if it's fantastic, interesting, well fleshed out, or intriguing to you, but I have a long work of fiction that's Next Gen! :) It's still a WIP.

 

Story and Author Name, including link: A Place Not Far From Here [M] by Chemical_Pixie
Fandom/Era: HP, Next Gen
Warnings and Advisories: Derogatory Language, Domestic Abuse, Hate Speech, Sexual Content, Substance Abuse, Violence
Genre: Action/Adventure, Crime/Mystery, Dark/Horror, Romance
Length: 25 chapters, 104,573 words overall (soon to be 26 chapters, I think!)
Summary: Attempting to stay one step ahead of The Cause, which violently echoes the time of Grindelwald, Amelia Fortescue faces truths she'd rather not admit, especially the ones related to James Potter.

As she tries to make sense of her present, she needs to confront her past. Amelia must find her way, but it's not as far as she might think.


Ships: JSP/OC, HP/GW, NL/HA
Areas of Concern (if any)Nothing in particular. This is my first "mystery", so if you want to give commentary on how it's set up, that's fine. If you're wanting to stick with this fic, your commentary might be better saved for later. I've written... a lot... with a lot still more to go. But I would love to hear your thoughts with have I have in the first couple chapters.

 

I don't think we've formally met, either. Hi! My name is Abby/Chemical_Pixie. It's so good to meet you! Once my review thread is open, feel free to take a slot if you'd like. :)
