Overly amused by the match between the summary for my latest fic and the summary for the one below it in the archive. Personally, I'm pretty sure Thalyn is right on this one.

Title: untitled

Genre: H/C broken people relationship stuff with a side of plot

Characters/Pairing: Eliot/Parker, team, Eliot's dad

Beta type: I don't think any one person could cover all the bases, but any of the following would be very appreciated

  1. Flow: Pointing out where I'm being too vague to make sense or otherwise causing a distracting disconnect

  2. Emotion: Watching the character development and making sure it feels real

  3. Style: Pointing out ways to make my writing style more vivid and smooth

  4. Plot: Helping me develop ideas and organize how the subplots weave in and out

  5. Information: Answering questions about hacking/infosec/data mining/server security

Length, or word count: It will be at least 30,000 words. I've written 12,000 words on it so far.

Short Summary: It's the sequel to my fic "We Wish You a Chaotic Christmas," so more Eliot/Parker relationship stuff and Eliot's relationship with his dad

Rating of the story: Mature? Not sure where it's going just yet.

Anything else you'd like to add: I adore concrit, nitpicking, bickering, arguing, flames, and anything else that involves talking about Leverage. I love it when a beta tears something to shreds because it's not about whether my current stuff gets me a pat on the head. It's about becoming a better writer.


Beta status: Available to beta fics in the Leverage fandom

Beta strengths: Spelling/grammar/usage/punctuation/missing words, canon, tightening up storytelling, techie stuff, real-life BDSM practices and subculture

Beta weaknesses: I try not to be nitpicky but I usually fail. I will discuss anything to death if given the opportunity. I probably can't help much with sex scenes.

Preferred genres: Anything that gets into the characters' heads, character studies, angst, H/C, BDSM, slash

Genres you won't beta: RPF, crossovers (well, aside from Highlander), underage, mpreg, major character death, genderswap, songfic, crack, crack AUs

Preferred pairings: Eliot/anyone (except for Hardison) but other pairings are good too

Pairings you won't beta: Hardison/anyone, though Eliot/Parker/Hardison is okay depending on story

Anything else you'd like to add: I like Hardison but I just can't get inside his head.
