: Writer / LurkerWhat do you hope to get out of this Community?:
Ideally - a long term beta willing to work with me on various projects across different fandoms.
For now - Someone to help me hammer a few BBC Luther fics into posting quality.How long have you been writing/beta-ing?:
30 years, my first fanfic was 20 years ago, in the Buffy fandom.What genre of stories to you like to write/beta?
: (Please also add any fandoms you write here? =D)
Genre is aything goes, generally sticking to the nature of the fandom, with a bent towards science fiction. Also, crack on occasion.
Shows: Currently, Criminal Minds and BBC's Luther. In the past: Sherlock, Babylon 5: Crusade, Cabin Pressure, Stargate: Atlantis, Buffy, and a few others I may have forgotten.
Also, slash, almost always slash, and lots of PWP's (what I've dubbed PWF's - PWP's with Feels)Do you have a website you'd like to show us?
- I'm sporadically in the process of compiling all of my various and sundry fics there, so some of my "recent" posts might be very old fics.What sparks your creativity?:
Anything and everything, I've written stories based on an offhanded commant about punctuation marks.What I'm looking for in a beta:A jack of all trades. SOmeone who can look objectively at my story and tell me what does and doesn't work. I prefer to have mutiple go-throughs, with most of them focusing on the story, where to expand/trim, which direction to go, etc. The final round is for the mechanical stuff - punctuation, grammer, britpicking. I'm not looking for a soft beta, I want someone who'll red pen the heck out of my stuff and make me re-write a dodgy scene ten times until it's right.Post a sample of your work under an LJ cut.
Please make sure it is something you're proud of, and is less than 500 words long. - This can be an excerpt from a longer piece:
This is one of my few unbetaed AO3 stories. It's an excerpt but still most of the story itself. Full story( Onward!Collapse )
