Hello, everyone. Boy, am I glad to see this community. :)

I'm new to writing HP fiction. I haven't had much luck finding a consistent beta. Work, course loads and waning interest in the books have made it difficult to snag someone steadier while I learn the ropes of beta-searching.

I've been writing my novel-length fiction, "Plagued," on and off since early summer. The first chapter is posted under The Dark Arts section of Fiction Alley.

I've combed over this draft several times, but it's certain that I've missed details here and there. Critiques, as well as canonical and grammatical corrections would be most appreciated.

Aaaand on with the fic.


Author: odio_et_amo
Title: "Plagued"; Chapter Two draft
Section Rating: R
Pairing: None...for now.
Summary: Harry didn't expect it to happen, but it did: he survived the confrontation with Lord Voldemort. Though the wizarding community is quick to leave (though not forget) the event in the past, the war has left deep marks and challenging obstacles in the recovery effort. While Harry tries to reintegrate himself with homework and school intrigue, a sinister and virtually undetectable enemy threatens to infiltrate Hogwarts -- and if it's not stopped, what remains of the magical community.
Disclaimer: Harry Potter characters belong to J.K. Rowling. No profit is being made, nor are copyright infringements intended by this fic.
Warnings: Harry, sans his right hand. Please read Chapter One for background info. Sorry for the extra work, guys. ^^;

'Plagued,' Chapter Two.'Collapse )

Beta and ConCrit request Dec. 1st, 2004 @ 12:55 pm
I've just finished writing the first draft of a novel-length fic, and I would really appreciate some help on the fine-edit process. I know I have not caught every typo, misused comma, poor word choice and contradiction. I am going over it myself, but I do recognise the value of having an objective party view the text. I love my story and want it to be perfect.

I don't want to post the whole story all at once, of course, since it's over 72,000 words, so I'll just do a couple chapters at a time (after I have done my own edit one them), if that works for everyone. Thank you all so much in advance for your help!

And now, the prerequisite headers:

Author: pica_scribit
Title: Survivor's Guilt: Moony's Tale (Prologue and Chapter One)
Section Rating: PG
Pairing: Remus/Sirius
Summary: This story is a re-telling of Prisoner of Azkaban from Remus Lupin's point of view. Chapter One: Remus returns to Hogwarts as a teacher.
Disclaimer: I own nothing. Don't sue me.
Warnings: None

Hi everyone. *waves* I'm currently beta-less, so I'm very glad I found this community. I've only recently started writing HP fics, (I usually dabble in other fandoms as well) and most of them are relatively short ficlets. I've yet to write a huge epic! ;)

Also - I'm bilingual. I was born in California, but moved to Switzerland when I was 10. I haven't had a proper English class since the 4th grade, so my grammar and spelling may need a bit of polishing up. I hope you guys can help me!

Anyhow. On to the fic. Feedback is very much appreciated!

Author: Me
Title: Working title is Refuge. May change it eventually.
Rating: PG
Pairing: unrequited HP/GW, hints of HP/DM
Summary: Playing a part, Ginny can fool almost everyone and everything.
Disclaimer: Anything you recognize belongs to JKR.
Warnings: um, none.

RefugeCollapse )

(LONG) Hurt, Chapter One, H/D, rated R Nov. 28th, 2004 @ 10:35 pm
Well, I'm rather stuck on my other WIP because the muse for that story is in a bit of a sulk. So I started this one in the meantime because it wouldn't leave me alone. I don't know where it's going, and I'm not altogether sure where it's been, and I don't think it's terribly original. But anyway, here it is for your beta-ing pleasure.

Author: violet_muse
Title: Hurt
Status: WIP
Rating: R-ish, maybe?
Pairing: H/D
Warnings: Slash, oblique references to violence--I'm not sure what may come in later chapters
Disclaimer: All the pretty toys belong to JKR and her assorted minions--I'm just rummaging in the toybox. I promise to put them all back when I'm finished playing with them. I'll try not to dirty them up too much.
Chapter Summary: Harry has been dreaming of Voldemort again, and he doesn't know whether to believe what he has seen. Is Voldemort trying to play another trick on him? He needs to know the truth--and to find the truth, he needs to find Draco Malfoy.
AN: This isn't a songfic, but I did borrow the story title and chapter title from "Hurt" by Nine Inch Nails.

What I Need To Know: I feel as though I've laid things on a bit too thick as far as Harry is concerned. How does it read? To me it feels rather like swimming in treacle... But then, by the time I post anything, I've done so much editing that my mind is just numb. :(

Yet another fic I did based on lyrics, but I can't declare it a song!fic. I don't use the lyrics within the story, I simply used them and the music to set my scene as I wrote it.

Song: Amsterdam
Pairing: Remus/Sirius (Mid/Post-PoA)
Rating: R (language)
Disclaimer: None of this is mine. The song and characters belong to other people who will actually make money off of them. Don't sue me. *begs* But! Feel free to, er, y'know, buy the idea, JKR. *hint hint, nudge nudge, wink wink*
Title: Time Is On Your Side NowCollapse )

Feedback is much appreciated!
» Untitled H/D fic

Title: [to be determined]
Rating: R, maybe nc-17, not sure
Words: 3153
Pairing: H/D,
Warnings: Slash.
Summary: Lucius won't take no for an answer.

I've been working on this story for about a week now and I need to take a step back and get some input. Any, and all feed back would be appreciated. Thanks.

» ADMIN: links, credit, and loff to you
1. It'd be really cool if you guys posted links here when the betaed versions of your stories are up wherever you archive or post them. I know I'd like to see them in their finished form, and I'm sure everyone who's worked on them would too.

2. Please credit the comm as you would any other beta, either by saying your fic/chapter was betaed here, or with the usernames of the specific people who gave you comments. Or both.

3. I'd like to thank everyone who's posted fics and feedback so far. I'm really happy with the way this comm is working out, and it wouldn't have happened without you guys being so great. *hands out chocolate*

And that's about it. Keep up the good work! :)

This was something I wrote for a fic contest a while back, but the contest fell through. I thought I'd post it. Hopefully it will be enjoyed as much as I enjoyed writing it. It's, er... kind of confusing, so I hope it comes out all right...

Author: tideclimber
Character(s): Harry
Disclaimer: I don't own any of these characters, but oh, how I wish I did.
Warnings: Character death (implicit); this is confusing -and yes, that is on purpose.
Rating: PG
Word Count: 2464
Title:Through the HazeCollapse )
» Drabble: A Pair of Green Eyes
Author: deirdre_riordan
Title: A Pair of Green Eyes
Pairing: Harry/James!Remus (see notes)
Rating: PG-13
Summary: James struggles with his desires.
Disclaimer: All JKR's. No harm, no foul.
Warnings: Incest?
Notes: You can blame Galadriel Waters for this one. I wrote this a while ago, and I think JKR has since discounted the Switching Spell theory this is based on, but no matter.

Ack, the header and intro are longer than the fic at this point. At 145 words, it's more like a drabble and a half. I'd not only like suggestions on how to convey more within the economy required by a drabble, but also your opinions as to whether you think this would work out if I expanded it, and where it might go if I did.
