Hi.I've just joined this community, though I've posted some fic (ages ago, admittedly) over on alexanderfics. I used to write Alex/Heph slash, and while I hope the boys aren't gone for good, I have been bitten by a HUGE Jared/Colin fic. I am going to finish it one way or another, but I'm looking for some help to make things a little smoother, a little prettier, and hopefully cleaner. I'm looking for one to three people for the following positions:Beta. I like betas who will not only check grammar/spelling/tense/flow/rhythm/character voice etc, but are willing to engage in a little meta. I'm hard to insult, but I reserve the right to not take every suggestion. Research associate. This is someone who is well versed in the schedule of shooting, countries they filmed in, and other details for Alexander. I don't know how much information is out there on where they were when, but I'm looking for someone who is good at ferreting out timelines and other basic information. If you want to read it to see what I'm looking for, and/or to discuss meta-issues, I'd be alright with that.Picture finder/maker. I have one friend making one icon. That's certainly enough, but gee shucks, I'd sure like pretty things to go along with this fic, if there's someone out there who likes doing such things. Again, if you'd like to read it for meta, I'd be perfectly fine with that.A few notes: I've been speaking the story to myself on tape (I've recently made a cross country trip) and while the story is done, it needs to be transcribed off tape (I'm doing this myself) and then kicked into shape. Right now, about two thirds of the outline is finished and it's at 11,000 words. This is not a small project, just so you know. If you're interested, but for whatever reason don't want to comment, please feel free to email me: kisahawklin (at) gmail (dot) comI'm not just coming on here to ask for favors, I'm bringing a present. My next post will be the only other bit of Jared/Colin I've ever written, and it's attached to a bit of Alexander FPS. Sorry about that, but I didn't want to come to the community empty-handed, asking for favors. All comers are welcome, even if someone else has offered, if you're interested, please comment or email. Thank you.
Title: A beautiful Lie
Author: Bwitched83uk (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Summary: Jared knows that what he and Colin share is nothing more than a beautiful lie, or is it?
Beta: My darling Beth.
Feedback: Makes Jared and Colin horny baby.

Well, I guess this one has gone down in history. Meh ...Anyways, my area has lot's of the evacuees and is sending lot's of help to the affected areas. We'll probably be sheltering them for a while since they now say that New Orleans will probably be flooded that'll be over twelve feet high. Considering that the part of the US that was hit is the poorest in the US donations and help will be much appreciated by those affected. There are links for both donations for the people who have survived. Also, info for contact and more info about the whole situation. For those wanting info on relatives and/or friends please be patient since the lines are jammed. Almost every single contact number has been showing busy signals. Network for GoodThanks,MeninaCrossposted to all my groups too. ^__^
( Chapter 7Collapse )
A little manip I made for the hell of it. It's again very pg, and really not of a huge size, so the cut is probably unnecessary. ( But here it is anyway!Collapse )
No rating on this one. It's very PG.Same rules as before, comment and credit when asked.( in here be teh prettiesCollapse )**
( Chapter 6Collapse )
Just so y'all know and I'm not going to go through posts and 'prod' people. All pics whether they are manips, drawings or pics from the movie need to have a rating. Also, we use the American Rating System. I have a full listing of it on our info page under the list rules.The reason why this reminder goes out is because while a lot of us read this at home some do pop in during work, at the library or at school so it'll help them decide what to click or not. Thanks for y'all's cooperation with this. ^__^MeninaCrossposted to alexanderfics
Icon post!Rules: Comment... and if someone asks, you didn't make'em. That's it. Credit when asked, I could care less about the rest!( In here peeps.Collapse )
Hi everyone! One of our list mods is leaving as a list mod due to RL. ***hugs bithysith good bye*** I am not sure if she is remaining a member on both lists but I hope so. Anyways, since we are losing a list mod on both alexanderfics and alexander_rpfic I am asking for a volunteer (and more than one is okay ^_^) to help out with one or both groups. Y'all are welcome to contact me off of this post or off-list at email@example.com ^__^I fixed the list rules to include two that are on alexanderfics. One is about using lj cuts and the other is about crosspromoing. I know that people on this group have asked me about it but, I don't remember who all did. Please contact me off-list and I'll add y'all to both lists. If you haven't but, you are interested please contact me off list. It's not really directed at anyone here. ^__^( Rule #11Collapse )Now on to our list's two year anniversary. Today is August 5th and the anniversary is on August 8th. So, there are two challenges. This the alexanderfics group's anniversary but, y'all are welcome to join in. ^__^There first one involves fic. Write an anniversary fic. It doesn't matter what kind. It can be a romantic anniversary, rememberance of a battle or whatever you want. Just label it: Anniversary fic Challenge. Also, in that same theme we are going to have an icon contest for the new icon for the group. You can make it an 'Anniversary' icon or whatever suits your fancy. Just post it to this post and then on August 8th I'll open a poll with all the icon presented for everyone and for three days everyone will vote and then I'll find the winner and it'll be the group's new 'official' icon. I believe we have an old one of a painting of Alexander so let y'all's imagination fly. Anyways, thanks to everyone for making this a wonderful group. MeninaList owner and mod
