I'm currently in the beginning stages of developing a Hogwarts based, comprehensive Choose-Your-Own-Adventure fanfiction, and need four reviewers, both to give feedback during the early planning, and also to play through Paths of the story as I write them, to make sure everything works the way it should, and also to proofread my story and give me Potter Advice. Although I love the series, I'm not a Potterhead. I haven't really done Pottermore, and in fact, I haven't been in touch with the universe in some time, save through Wikia research over this past week or so. So the four testers must be familiar with and knowledgeable about the extended Potter universe, to help me get all the little details right, and to make the experience as smooth and canonically correct as possible. I would prefer to have one reviewer from each 'House,' that is, the house you feel you most identify with, but you will also be playing through the game in other houses as well. (So by this, I mean: Sometimes the Slytherins will be the good guys. If you just don't think that's possible, I'd rather you not volunteer.) The four testers must also be writers, since you'll be critiquing my story both from a creative and a technical standpoint. If you really like this story idea, but don't write, please just be patient for the chapters to be finished and posted, and leave the testing to people who write. And by writers, I'm not demanding you be published or even well-schooled; if you write decent fanfiction as a hobby, you still qualify. I'll also forewarn you that my muse is fickle. While I've been steadily planning this for about a week, and can generally stay on topic for anywhere between three months to a year, maybe two, there's every chance I will simply drop this project if I decide I'm not 'feeling it' anymore. Updates will be sporadic and sometimes months apart. I'm a casual writer. I spend most of my life writing, but it's mostly just for fun, and I don't focus on a story I'm not in the mood for, I don't bother with deadlines, and almost never actually finish a work. I'm actually opening this up to review in hopes that the four testers will help keep me motivated and will give me new ideas if I'm facing writer's block, and so will keep me on track and MAKE me follow through and finish this story. But even if all goes well, it will still take a LOT of work and will take a very long time for me to finish it. (It's only a First-Years story, and due to how extensive it will be, sequels are only a slight possibility, if this story goes well.) If you commit to being a tester for the First Years story, you'll be in it for the long-haul. If you'd like to apply to be a reviewer, please fill out the following form and post it here. Deadline will be... Sometime in a month, I guess. (See what I mean about deadlines?) XD After about a month, I'll choose the testers, and I'll PM the four testers and give them links to what I've got so far. Application Form: Username: Hogwarts House you identify with: What you think your Wand would be like: Writing Experience (you can include a link to a work if you'd like): Are you willing to get PM's and links to new updates in the story over the next year or so, and are you committing to checking out the updates and providing at least a minimal amount of feedback on the updates provided? (Yes or no) I'm pretty excited about this story, and I hope you'll be able to join me in the creation process.
