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 [ 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.

Detailed Fanfiction Labeling/Warning Policy Under the Cut )

If you have a less common trigger and would like to know if it shows up in my fic, or if there's anything you think I should add to this list, please let me know in a comment or PM me.

Participating in [ 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 [ profile] amathela

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

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

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

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

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

Beta-Reading & the Art of Criticism

  • Jun. 2nd, 2009 at 10:22 PM
origamiflowers: (guitar)
At online forums like [ 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.

origamiflowers: (raise your hands)
The wonderful [ profile] femme_fic, a fic exchange based on writing female characters, has wrapped up, so I have some multifandom recs. These aren't culled from everything that was posted - just the fandoms I'm familiar with. And my own contribution!

9 recs for BSG, Bones, Firefly, SGA, Supernatural, Veronica Mars )

My fic:
a theory of relativity. River, the Serenity crew, PG, 1400 words. The prompt was "How River gets along with each member of the crew," and I chose Inara, Wash, Kaylee, Jayne, and Simon.

recs: harry potter - femmefest (femmeslash)

origamiflowers: (camera)
The [ profile] femmefest over at LJ just wrapped up and posted its masterlist, so check it out! I loved reading the submissions and I'm a bit proud of my own as well. Here are some recs, what I thought were the best offerings.

Harry Potter Femmeslash Recs )

Not a rec, but here's my contribution to the fest:
Collapse Into Me (Fic). Hermione/Fleur, NC17, 2400 words. Warning: infidelity.
"Hermione tries to make herself useful."

fandom: Twilight
characters/pairings: Alice
genre: gen, introspection
rating: PG
length: 500 words
disclaimer: This is a transformative work.
summary: A hundred years is a long time to live. Sometimes she feels like a shell. Like 'alice' is only a sequence of sounds, signifying nothing. Alice imagines who she could have been. Five drabbles.

Today, I bring you recs featuring the pairing Peter/Claire from Heroes.
