Heya *waves* =)

Anyone was willing to beta a fairly long Spander story for my noel_of_spike day? I have 2 parts finished already, and working currently on part III. However, I plan to cover Seasons 1 and 2 from the show in this fic. (Edit to add: Because of the timeline of this fic, there is mention of under-age sexual situations. If that squicks you, I understand. Almost forgot to warn about that.)

For those that have never beta'd for me before, here's my hang-ups as I know them to be:
- Sentence structure. I think backwards a lot, so writing a sentence backwards is not uncommon.
- Basic grammar. I'm a comma hoe. I love them and put them everywhere.
- Some spelling. Spell check, obviously, doesn't catch everything, and when writing Spike, I usually drop some letters, so spell check doesn't even know what to make of those words.
- Some Characterization. For the most part I'm confident in my characterization, however, I usually struggle with Xander. (I've been watching a lot of BtVS lately, starting with Season 1, so I hope I've gotten better.)
- Plot holes and general flow of story. No matter how many times you look something over, there's always that chance you forgot to add something or clarify. It happens. =)

Because of NaNo, I'm not writing on this piece as much as I would like, so returning beta work can take a while if need be. This piece is due December 21st for my day.

Thanks in advance!!

P.S. Tentative title is Bereft. If ya think of something better, let me know. =) I'm not all *ooh pretty* on the title


You know, just reading and commenting has always been fine for me, but lately I keep having fic ideas. It was fine and all (b/c I could just ignore them), but then it started to seep into my DREAMS.I have 2 so far, one for Psych (Shus) and one for Buffy (Spander). It's driving me up the bloody walls! I really really want to write the stories, but I'm not sure if I can. Now I COULD just give the ideas away, but I know that it would turn out completely different from my own intentions if I don't just write them myself.

So, yea, for all you fic writers out there, does writing Spander get in the way of your jobs? Like even though you work someplace, writing fiction doesn't put you into the risk of being fired. Do you know someone who might be in my situation? How do they deal with it?
