Hello! I am Mary, writer of angst, tragedy, poetry, and occasionally other things!I AM ALSO A MOD.
Contact me at borderline [_] mary [@] hotmail [dot] com if you need me; I don\'t bite.
I\'m a fanfiction author in the midst of an ongoing obsession, which is my story \'Changing Death.\' Having never finished a chaptered story before, it is my goal to finish this one someday, preferably sooner rather than later. Perhaps after that I\'ll try my hand at reader-inserts.
Most of my older work is not posted here due to extreme suckage. Do not ask me to tell you of my shame.
If you\'d like me to read and review something of yours, please don\'t hesitate to ask. It would be my pleasure to help out anyone who needs or wants it by offering constructive criticism and fluffy praise.
My fic summaries are subject to change without notice.
Mary Is From: Iowa
Mary\'s Age Is: 26

About my services: I'm an easygoing beta who can be harsh if need be, but only if requested. My grammar, spelling and punctuation checks are always thorough and merciless, however, due to my slight over-enthusiasm about the mechanics of writing. I've usually got a good feel for continuity and characterization, and I'm proficient at fixing problems with pacing/rhythm/flow. I am always, ALWAYS willing, able, and glad to have extended sounding-board conversations - I'll be in it for the long haul and go right down to the fine details if you need me to. I will usually take my time beta-ing because I like to be meticulous, so if you're under any kind of personal deadline (I do that for myself too) please let me know so I can get through your stuff faster.
Will not read: I tend to read most anything, but I draw the line at gratuitous rape, orgies, or violence/gore. If there's no reason for it in the plot (it also counts if it's the ENTIRE plot), or if it's clearly excessive and unnecessary, odds are I'll turn the story down right away. Mpreg is not my thing, and I've frankly never seen it done very well; I'm SOMETIMES willing to give it a shot, but be prepared for skepticism at best. I also prefer not to read reader-inserts, but that doesn't mean I'll necessarily turn them down; go ahead and ask, just be aware they're not my favorite thing. I place no restrictions on pairing or genre.
