Hi everyone, hope you're doing good.
I've been busy with work and writing when I can. I haven't given up on Onward to Adventure, my nuzlocke, but I've been hitting "small" bumps for the plot and such. Thankfully, I have an awesome beta reader helping and hopefully things will go smoother once I get back into the flow with it.
However, to avoid driving myself bonkers trying to force myself to write more when nothing comes, I've gone back on an older fic I wrote and finished. You can thank my subconscious for bringing it back. All I need is someone who has the time and patience to go over and clean it up where it needs it. I've already done as much as I can, but I feel it could be better, but I can't pick up on it. I've fixed some plot holes I noticed and changed up a few spots for plot and of course any grammar and spelling mistakes I noticed using a mix of Word and Grammarly as well as what I know for certain.
The fic in question is a Harry Potter piece. The theme for it is more my own "recreation" of the series. I've seen some other writers do this and it looked interesting and had some ideas myself. I doubt they'll be as good as they had done, but it was fun and still is after going over it to refresh my memory.
I'll admit, some of the parts/scenes I originally intended for it is/will change between going back over and such. But I can't say for certain as some scenes I would like to use, but I also want to make it flow well enough then simply crammed in. So besides a beta reader, I wouldn't mind if someone wanted to offer some advice on how to progress for future chapters and sequels if they're interested to have it all make sense. For the beta reader, most I ask for is help clean up anything I missed with spelling, grammar, sentence structure, etc.
If you're interested, comment here or send me a note offering your help either to build the plot more, as a beta reader, or both. I'll give more details of what I have planned if you're interested in sticking through for a great length of time. If not, you can simply help with the first story or two, (I have a sequel made and completed. Others will be made quickly as I can.) but don't have to stay for others.
However, before you jump in to help, I want to give some fair warning. There will be some content, while not explicit, or shouldn't become so, some pairings will be changed. Some will still be in hetero, others in entering a same-sex relationship. Again, it won't/shouldn't be explicit. I want to try and keep it PG-13 at the very least if I can for those kinds of scenes if they're to occur. However, such scenes have not even started to form or been fleshed out, so it's still open territory to fiddle with and improve by the time I do get to them.
The other thing to add will be that there are going to be some sensitive subjects included. It will vary between abuse and self-harm, mentions of suicide in some manner as well. There may be others down the road, if I do reach such crossroads, I'll mention them and if it's uncomfortable, you can back out or we can discuss it to find a way to alter it and find a better option instead. I want to be flexible to change without completely changing what I had planned.
