This shop is here primarily for editing or beta-reading purposes.
I will edit and/or critique your work. I will assist in doctoring for a slightly higher fee. And I will be your roleplaying editor or fanfiction beta reader.
I will write stream of consciousness poetry or prose from an OC's point of view.
I will do drabbles (100 words) and ficlets (50 sentences).
I will write short stories. (Right now, I am only interested in writing fan fiction of very particular fandoms. See next post for the deets.)
How Much Will This Cost Me?
As usual, it depends. The editing will be cheap; about 50g a paragraph for just editing, 100g for critique/suggestion. Doctoring will be dependent on story and how much work needs to be done. It will change for every story, but those are the prices you can expect.
The poetry or prose will run about 1k-5k. Drabbles and ficlets - offers only. Fanfiction will also be offers only, but seeing as these will run long, 100k at least, probably.
I originally wasn't going to post any. This was supposed to be an editing shop. Oh, well.
Stream of Consciousness Prose
"You can't live in the past," he advised her. Like for some reason that was something she'd never heard before. "Well, you know me," she had said. She hadn't wanted to say it. It had been on the tip of her tongue, opening her mouth, about to come out, but not knowing how to say what it was she wanted to say.
In the August before Frodo's forty-ninth birthday, Gandalf returned to the Shire. For many long years he had been neither seen nor heard from. And if the typical inhabitant of this green and quiet country remarked upon this at all, perhaps they thought him gone for good.
As it was, the old wizard blew in with a late afternoon storm, his cloak billowing like the wings of a great bird, his brows as lowering as the grey clouds now scudding across the ragged sky. Thunder followed in his wake.
So What Do I Want? Editing: I would love to beta someone's work. And I would love to be someone's full time editor, especially for roleplaying. We could work out a deal. But I love editing. This would be my favorite job. Stream of Consciousness: Complex characters and subtle interaction. As you can see, I love deep character study. Anger, sadness, all very fun. Drabbles: Unique setting or story idea. Wonderful characters. OCs and fandoms welcome. Fanfiction: You must have at least a semi-idea of what you want!
Stargate-verse, almost any pairing, good plots necessary. (Instant yes: Rodney/Radek)
Doctor Who, some pairings. Kingdom Hearts. Feel free to ask about any others.
Braxas - a cocky, obnoxious town-guard - foolishly starts harassing Cygnus, who waves his wand...making Braxas start getting younger! Too busy acting macho to notice at first, Braxas grows infuriated as Cygnus chuckles at his slipping clothing, but his surly attitude becomes comical as he reverts to his awkward adolescent years. Cygnus easily holds his wand out of reach as Braxas shrinks into a child, taunting the frustrated fighter as he degenerates to a tantruming toddler, before casually lifting the protesting infant onto a changing-mat and diapering him before his stunned-yet-amused fellow guards.
