Fic beta needed (Maya/Sam) 
18th-Mar-2018 02:41 pm
I've just finished a fic that I started, believe it or not, in 2006. It was an absolute nightmare to write, for some reason - I literally worked on it continuously for all that time, though it's not even long (about 1500 words). It's from Maya's POV, which was a large part of the problem, really, because we're given so very little of her in canon. I also had to pack a whole lot of psychological complexity into it, and it somehow demanded to be done in a very "compressed" format, which meant constant weeding out/distilling down, which can be very hard in its own right.

(And yes, I know it's a little mad to work on a piece of fanfiction for that long. To be fair, I wrote other things in the meantime, too.)

Anyway, it's done now, and since I'm not a native speaker, I feel I should run it past a beta. Yet all my former contacts in this fandom aren't active anymore, and I'm not sure anyone still is, really...

If you'd like to get an idea of what my writing is like, here's my last LoM fic before this one:

Any takers?

OMGOMGOMG! Hello! :DDD Ahhhhh I still have your e-mail somewhere I think, is it still valid? Great that you're still writing (and original fic, too!!) - I've been kept super busy by working two jobs, those last four years, and thus my writing has slowed to an even slower crawl than usual, not that it ever went very quickly... but I haven't entirely stopped. It's just going super super slow.

(Incidentally, the fic we talked about at length all those years ago is still an ongoing concern! Though there's another one I may want to finish before really tackling it. Also, for efficiency's sake, I may end up melding it with another bunny... which might actually make it easier to write, but we'll see...)

(Also, you should totally take up some of those half-finished fics again. ;-))

I should reread our e-mail conversation from back then, sometime. Maybe that'll help kickstart the project in my mind again... Though really, I should focus on my other big still-ongoing LoM project first, because that's a) very lovely and b) much nearer completion.
