This is an unusual request, so thanks in advance for your
I am looking for a long term, multiple story audience/beta,
preferably able and willing to work in multiple fandoms, but at the
very least conversant in the SGA universe. For the most part, I
won't need help with grammar or basic writing -- rather, I'm looking
for someone to point out weaknesses in overall story structure
and/or characterization and to generally make the story the best it
possibly can be.
If you are interested and/or would like a writing sample please let
me know. Despite the unusual nature of this request, I feel there
will be a lot of benefits to a long-term writer/beta relationship,
not the least of which would be higher quality fanfic and a more
equitable level of collaboration (and credit).
To give you an idea of what would be involved, here are the stories
I'm currently working on:
SGA stories currently under development:
Unconventional Beauty: Beauty and the Beast, featuring Rodney as
Beauty and John as the Beast. Also, because you can't have Rodney
without contemporary science, lots of historically accurate 1800's
scientific detail. Will run 5,000-10,000 words, be NC-17, and
Untitled Harlequin AU: Rodney's a social inept astrophysicist/CEO.
John's a caterer that Rodney has hired to play host at all of his
corporate events. I'm sure you can guess what will happen next.
Still in the pre-writing stage, but will probably be around 40,000
words, NC-17, and and will definitely feature McShep.
Other fandom stories currently under develoment:
Switch: Fastlane (Van/Deaq, rating not yet determined)
Untitled 10th Kingdom fic: ~3,000 words, post-mini-series
