Okay, Carina is currently (or about to be) undergoing major, major revisions. Chapter one of the first book will be a seperate thing, chapters with bad spelling and grammar will be (hopefully) fixed, and so on. Hopefully I will also have a few more chapter for Book 4, but no promises. --Katie
Hey everyone. I'm sorry for the lack of Carina posts, but I've been suffering from a huge, horrible case of writer's block. Toodles, Kate.
Disclaimer: I own nothing. It's not mine. If I owned Harry Potter, I would most definitely not be sitting here at an extremely slow computer wishing I had the money to go do something fun. Hell, if I owned Harry Potter, book seven would have been a (very horrible) nightmare. And books 5 and 6 might be as well. So, general disclaimer for all my stories: I have no claim. It isn't mine. Hell, I don't even want it... there's no fun in Canon. Lots of fun in distorting it to my own wants, though...
Carina Black: It's an AU series, and I've plotted all eight books out, written the first three all the way and I've just started working on the fourth. There's lots of OOC, and my main character is kind-of-sort-of an OC. She is Carina Black, and I got the idea from multiple stories that I combined. At the moment I can't for the life of me remember what they were, but I apologize to anyone who sees that I (accidentally) stole an idea from them. This idea bit me on the head and even once I'd plotted eight books out it refused to let go, so I started writing them, and for what might be a first in my life, I have every intention of finishing them!
(I know I changed a lot of details, and if some of them aren't explained, I'm sorry x600 -- I (still) don't have a beta, and since I have the entire story in my head, it easily makes sense to me. Oh, and if searching for this story, because I know I sometimes get confused with that kind of thing, Carina is listed as OC not HP, because she isn't a Potter... and because she's a girl, and the name Harriet makes me ill...)
Orion Riley Lupin: is very, very deserted, and has been for a very, very long time. In fact, I apologize for ever posting it, and if I wasn't so lazy, I'd take it down so no one has to suffer through it. :P
Regulus' Son: When I started writing this one, I was absolutely in love with the idea, and I have about four or five unfinished draft copies of it stored on my computer. However... my deepest apologies, it's also abandoned. God, I've turned into one of those writers I used to get so annoyed at! Agh!
Harry's New Life: An overused, overdone, completely old plotline that was one of the first ever fan fiction I tried to write. Again, it was a mistake to ever post that, and you have my sincerest apologies!
Traitors!: Uh... Where to start on this one? Another idea I was completely in love with at the start, and by now I'm disgusted with it. Not the plotline, but my attempt at it.
BUT!! To the readers of my four non-Carina stories, as I know there are some and they enjoyed them (I'm not insulting you guys, you all rock and kept me smiling when I didn't know it was possible!! I'm most own worst critic, is all) feel free to take over and continue them. Toodles, Kate.
About Me, Pet Peeves In Fan Fiction
I'll limit myself to a few, or I'll be writing this all day.
(1) Grammar, for one. I don't mind a few mistakes - I'd be a complete and total hypocrite not to - but when I'm reading a story and it feels like I'm reading another language because the grammar is so bad, I tend to just give up on it. There's been more than one story that I really liked the idea of, but couldn't force myself to read due to the bad grammar. And yeah, I know I have grammar issues myself, but hey, I'm trying.
(2) People who review saying that something in a story would never happen in cannon. No, really? You think? That might be why it's called fan fiction! No one but the original author can accurately write cannon. Get over it, let it go. People, it's fan fiction. FICTION written by FANS! That's two reason why not a bit of it is going to be logical. Frankly, if you want logic, what in the name of god are you doing reading fan fiction in the first place?
(3) The 'you're stupid if you ship this or that' bickering. Oh for gods sake, people, again with the fiction. It is REALLY not that big of a deal!
