Something Old - B/A Fanfic Series by Ducks

If you expressed interest in wanting to beta chapters, I've got a few for you to look at. My question is, do you want me to:

1.) Post them behind a custom lock here on the SO LJ?
2.) Email them to you?
3.) Add you to my Yahoo beta list and send them as I usually do?

Let me know, and I'll take care of that tonight or tomorrow.

As much as I want to beta -- i don't want to beat in the middle of the book -- so i won't beta. But i wnat to, but I think I will wait to read the whole shebang when you post it on the site...will that be soon?

Well, the goal is to have it done by Writercon, and it will probably be posted sometime after. The first week of August is my target date to post!

You can read the chapters I post without beta-ing them, as well. They're in friends locked posts here on the community. Did you join?

what's that mean?

Hey hun, looking a your icon...what does OTP mean? Is it an American political term? Or something else...Oh and let's get that Bushey asshole outta office; when I say 'we' I mean it in a universal sense -- cause I'm Canadian and can't vote in the US elections...

Re: what's that mean?

OTP is fandom speak for "One True Pairing". *G* ie. B/A, etc.

And we WILL get him out, fear not. :)

Anyway is fine with me (if you still need me to beta, that is). E-mail, posting on SO page.... whatever is easiest for you. :)

Just submitted my request. :)

I see you've posted some more chapters. Do you prefer comments on the individual threads or is sending an email better? Either way is fine for me.

Ducks, I *swear* I will get you some feedback on the first four chapters on SO:B5 soon. PROMISE! Right now life is a little sucky (okay, make that big-time sucky) but this will provide a much-needed break. If this is a problem (don't need the feedback or this feedback is too late), just let me know. :)

Beta

I'd love to beta if you'd like another pair of eyes -- I doubt you NEED another pair of eyes. So, if you'd like, I'd love to. Option #3 sounds like the option you're used to. Let me know!

Hee. You're not alone! If you go to the user info page of this community and join, I'll approve you. If you'd like to beta, go to http://www.yahoo.com/groups/ducksbetareaders and join there, I'll approve you. I send new chapters to the beta list before I post them here. :)

Hi there,

I'm not sure if you still check this, but I would love to read beyond Book 3 of the Something Old series. I can't find book4, 4.5, 5 or the other stories anywhere online. Any way to get them? Pretty please?

Thanks
