Begging for help!

current mood: hopeful
current song: 30stm, A Beautiful Lie in my head


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) com

I'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.

Some manips posted here you might be able to use

I previously researched shooting schedule/location for someone and will let you know if I come across the email with the info.

Thank you - there's some lovely artwork in those manips. And if you find that email I would be forever grateful.

I'm so curious as to how this is going to turn out. I don't know how much help I'd be, but if you still need it, feel free to ask.

This is probably waay late, but eh ^-^

Ha, well, I have been stalled on this project since shortly after I posted this, so... a little late, yeah. *laughs*

If you'd like to take a look at the first chapter or so, email me at kisahawklin at gmail dot com and I'll send it off to you.
