fic: Tin Man: "I Hear the Bells" - Jeb/Az

title: "I Hear the Bells"

genre: gen, pre-romance
rating: PG
length: ~450 words
disclaimer: Tin Man does not belong to me. I am not profiting from this.
summary: She resented his free and unrestrained laughter.
notes: A gift-fic for [livejournal.com profile] writersblock76, who requested Jeb/Az and "laughter." It sort of tries to be childrensbookish, or maybe fairytaleish, but probably fails at both. Hope you like, despite its unforgivable lateness! This also fulfills the prompt "not fade away" for my [profile] tm_ficfest table. Also, the title is shamelessly cribbed from some song on the Veronica Mars soundtrack.

on [livejournal.com profile] remixthedrabble

Participating in [livejournal.com profile] remixthedrabble was so much fun. I loved the challenge of condensing and changing someone else's story. I was only assigned to write two drabbles, but as soon as I finished those two, I enjoyed it so much that I wrote four extra, just for fun! :) Anyway, here's the list of what I wrote, with the links to the original stories:

The Hard Prayer (The Sacrificial Wolf Remix) (Battlestar Galactica: Helo, Sharon, S1)
original story: After Me Comes the Flood by [livejournal.com profile] amathela

Slippery Fish in the Stream (The Derrida Remix) (Firefly: River)
original story: Time, Like a River by [livejournal.com profile] melodyunity

Blessed Are the Forgetful (The True Beatitude Remix) (Heroes: The Haitian, Elle)
original story: Forget by [livejournal.com profile] restlessme

Velocity Girl (The Wild Things Remix) (The Chronicles of Narnia: Susan)
original story: never a crack in the ivory tower by [livejournal.com profile] be_themoon

Better Left Unsaid (The Under the Sea Remix) (Stargate Atlantis: John, Teyla)
original story: Seawall by [livejournal.com profile] wojelah

Listen to Your Own Silence (The Devil in All of Us Remix) (Supernatural: John)
original story: Limbo by [livejournal.com profile] emmademarais

Also, two of my fics were remixed! The only fandom I'd written the minimum for was House M.D., so the fics are old, but the remixes are fantastic!

Four Men Allison Cameron Never Slept with, and One She Did (The Coin Flip Remix) by [livejournal.com profile] sabinelagrande.
original fic: Four Men Allison Cameron Never Slept with (And One She Did)

Beta-Reading & the Art of Criticism

At online forums like [livejournal.com profile] fanficrants, beta-readers are treated a bit like objects of worship. Goddesses, perhaps, or Holy Grails. Comma out of place? Should've had a beta. Typo? You needed someone else to look at it. Homonym error? A beta would have caught it, keeping you from looking like the total moron you have now revealed yourself to be. (I poke lovingly, FFR.)

It’s a common piece of fandom wisdom. There are a myriad of communities for it, from the general to the fandom-specific. If you're creating an original character, there are comms where people volunteer to evaluate them and tell you whether or not they're a Mary Sue, which seems like a form of beta-reading to me. And beta-reading seems like a smart, simple concept: get someone else to read your fic before you post and fix any errors they notice.

If you've had other experiences, disagree with something I said, want to add some advice, or suggest more resources to add to the resource list, please comment below! I'm looking forward to reading your thoughts.
