Looking for a Supernatural beta/writing buddy
Well I've gotten into Supernatural lately and am thinking of writing my first Supernatural fic. Nothing too long (or so I hope), but still...

The only problem is that my usual talking buddy isn't really into the series yet. (I'm working on it)

So anyone out there that wouldn't mind talking to me about this fic I'm writing? That and help me beta it when and if it gets finished?



Fic would be set in s3, I just had this weird idea after watching Jus in Bello for about the fifth time, of what would have happened if Lilith hadn't ordered a hit on the Winchester brothers while Henrickson had them in custody.

Thinking that in canon, she didn't want them truly locked up because she still needed them, since the plan was always to use Sam to open the last seal so.. (which is the main reason I'm thinking she sent Ruby to Sam, esp. in Jus in Bello, where Ruby had to test them and....)

Not that that really matters or does it? hmm

Anyway, what if Henrickson hadn't reached his boss at the FBI and had just gone on with his plan to transport Dean and Sam to Supermax as intended. Just got this idea in my head of Dean in Supermax with the time on his deal slowly decreasing until the Hell Hounds come to get him. Might even have Henrickson investigating after Dean dies, hmmm

Just thinking how it would affect Sam to know he can't save his brother and what Lilith would do with both of them locked up. (it probably won't get that far, since the prison scene's the main thing, but... hmmm, Castiel coming to get Sam after Dean's freed from hell...Oh come on, Dean would sooooo insist on it*eg*)

Just saying loads of ideas, just need someone to talk it over before I can get started.

Anyone want to talk, I'm always reachable as lilithdemonmom on aim

I don't mind helping out, but I am off to Canada quite soon, so my availability in the next month or so will be patchy.

Well since I've only got a week a two weeks left if I want to post it for the team challenge thing... even just one talk with someone interested in the series would already be useful.

God, I'm just worried sick about getting Dean's voice right. *g*

That's the bit that stops me plunging in (that and a plot), but although I've dodged them a little, I think I could do the voices. I can certainly beta for you.

The next couple of couple of weeks will be fairly free.

That'd be awesome.
thanks, I definitely appreciate any help. It's the hardest thing of getting into a new fandom, getting the sense of the characters right, especially that first time.

Or at least finding the courage to give them a try.

It's been a long time since I've been a sounding board for another author, so I'll be a little rusty at it. But I'd be willing to give it a go I think your story has definite potential in the angst category. Can we chat through Gmail or Hotmail?
liliaeth From: liliaeth Date: May 31st, 2009 03:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
hotmail would be good, I don't use my g-mail account all that much.

I can also get online on msn messenger if that's simpler.

My hotmail account is liliaeth @ hotmail.com

I've just been checking security procedures at supermax prisons, and thinking it might be best to do the fic from Henrickson's pov. Though that one's up for discussion*eg*

I've added you to my MSN, morganeth(at)hotmail(dot)com just so you know who this strange new person is ^_~

We could set up a little LJ community so we can all discuss it together.
yacoba From: yacoba Date: May 31st, 2009 04:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
I just saw a listing for a Supernatural LJ writes community today I believe
bogwitch From: bogwitch Date: May 31st, 2009 04:33 pm (UTC) (Link)
I was thinking something a little more exclusive really.
liliaeth From: liliaeth Date: May 31st, 2009 04:34 pm (UTC) (Link)
oh? where?
bogwitch From: bogwitch Date: May 31st, 2009 04:37 pm (UTC) (Link)
Just create one! You can make it friend only I believe.
liliaeth From: liliaeth Date: May 31st, 2009 04:50 pm (UTC) (Link)
cool, thanks

That's a good idea. A friend of mine who's writing a fic in another fandom to a deadline has set up a filter so anyone who's interested (and around at the time) can make comments and bounce ideas.
bogwitch From: bogwitch Date: May 31st, 2009 04:36 pm (UTC) (Link)
myfeetshowit and I have an LJ that only we have access too in order to bounce ideas. I find it works quite well in that respect (although less so for actual betaing).

It means not tying people down to one time and place, but can get everyone bouncing ideas.
kitty_poker1 From: kitty_poker1 Date: May 31st, 2009 04:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
Exactly. snowpuppies and I bounce ideas and beta on YIM very successfully but our fandoms and preferences don't exactly align so other input is extremely helpful sometimes.
bogwitch From: bogwitch Date: May 31st, 2009 04:57 pm (UTC) (Link)
Not necessarily a problem in this case, but timezones make YIM a problem for me. That and my tendency to talk rubbish.
kitty_poker1 From: kitty_poker1 Date: May 31st, 2009 05:43 pm (UTC) (Link)
Snowy's in Texas and I'm in Essex, so some of our discussions can be a bit fuzzy. *g*
bogwitch From: bogwitch Date: May 31st, 2009 06:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oregon and Hertfordshire beat that!
kitty_poker1 From: kitty_poker1 Date: May 31st, 2009 06:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
It does, by an hour! LOL!!
bogwitch From: bogwitch Date: May 31st, 2009 07:04 pm (UTC) (Link)
How can it if Oregon is UTC-8 and Texas is UTC-7 or -6?
liliaeth From: liliaeth Date: May 31st, 2009 06:16 pm (UTC) (Link)
Try Belgium and New York*eg*

spikes_heart and I are about five hours apart. Unfortunately though, she's not much into Supernatural... yet.
bogwitch From: bogwitch Date: May 31st, 2009 07:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
Feety is eight hours behind, which means catching her very late at night!
liliaeth From: liliaeth Date: May 31st, 2009 07:11 pm (UTC) (Link)
wow, I'm just lucky that Andrea tends to stay up very very late*g*
liliaeth From: liliaeth Date: May 31st, 2009 04:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
Just created a com, thinking once the fic's finished, I might advertise it as a place for people in general to discuss fics*g*

(at least that way the com won't have wasted a username*g*
