Request for Beta!  
Hello! I'm posting this request here in the hopes that one of you fantastic, talented writers on my f-list will see this and come to my aid, particularly you J/W writers (veronamay? lemmealone? cicerothewriter? weaselwoman13? leaper182? Any takers?). If not, I'll post this on indeedsir and hopefully get someone that way.

Here's the posish:

I'm looking for one or more beta readers for a J/W fic that I have written, much to my surprise. I haven't done any creative writing in over ten years, and I've never written fanfic before. I doubted that I was even capable of it, but lo and behold, once I began it just wouldn't stop, and now I've got a fic that's approximately 9500 words. It's a first-time Jeeves POV that contains ultra-sappy h/c, clueless!Bertie and plotting!Jeeves, smut, and very little in the way of actual plot. There is some chance that it is total badfic, in which case it will never see the light of day, but I need someone to tell me whether it should be buried and forgotten or whether it is worth working on further. And, if the latter, to help me with that re-working.

So, pretty please? With sprinkles and things? *bats eyelashes*

Go on, send it over. I'm not working tomorrow. *g*

I'm afraid my Wodehouse voice might be a bit rusty, but I've got the books at my fingertips and I'll give you what I can. This is in no way a shameless ploy to read it before anyone else.

*shifty eyes*


New J/W yay!

Yay! Thankees! I admit that one of my motivations in finally writing my own fanfic was that I was totally starved for new J/W fic. But I've noticed that writing, while satisfying, isn't the same experience as getting to read someone else's J/W. (Hint, hint).

Anyway, I shall send you an email shortly. Thanks again!

Hee. Um, I can try my best? It's been a while since I heard a Jooster audiobook, but I can try my best?
