I need a Beta. For Fanfiction. So hopefully one scrolling the tags goes ‘OMG! I should totally help this weirdo out!’
But I do indeed need someone to help me through this story idea I have that is kinda big. Without giving my idea away, it’s a crossover story between the Avengers and The Amazing Spider-Man. Movie-verse, with hints and slight canon taken from the comics. It will be post Avengers by one year, and deal with a villain in Spider-Man that was featured in one of the Tobey movies. However, I am not taking directly from the old films. This villain will be more modernized and realistic (in my eyes, so you know, it’s all based off opinion) and will fit in slightly differently than it has before. I have ideas written down already, and I have a basic idea of what I want to do.
What I’m looking for:
- A second set of eyes. I’ve proofed my own work in the past and I’m usually fairly good at it (IMO)
- Someone to help with the ordering of the scenes (I have three sections of the story I need to bring together, and not immediately. I need to figure out when to reveal what.
- Someone to help with creating a cohesive ending and a decent climax scene (Plot climax, just so you know for sure.)
- And someone to keep my characterizations in check.
- A good eye for spelling in grammar, though I have a fine grasp on that myself.
- Experience with beginning and ending stories. I totally fail at times with this, so I need someone to unhinge my writer’s block.
- Someone who is able to wait while I get my stories done. I hardly have time to sit and write, so it may take awhile before anything ends up on FF.
Message me Here:
We can go over the plot in more detail before you commit, I’m just trying to keep the idea off the main section of the web. Creative content and what not.
Reblog if only if you really think anyone of your followers could help. I’d rather not spoil more dashes than I already am. Thanks in advance!
…That I am under the firm impression that Avengers would not have been nearly as awesome as it had if Joss Whedon had not directed it? Having been a fan since the 7th grade when I discovered the amazingness that is Buffy the Vampire Slayer, I noticed all the little quirks to his style, and I knew immediately which jokes he came up with himself, probably on the day of the take. He just has this way he directs people, the little motions and the little tiny jokes that just make things awesome.
For those that are lost, my examples would be:
“That man is playing Galaga. He thought we wouldn’t notice but we did.” And how the camera comes back later and the man clicks back on the game to continue playing.
or how the camera cuts in on the end of Coulson asking for Steve’s autograph on his vintage Captain America cards with only slight foxing around the edges.
The little things. It’s how he presents the jokes and where they land in the editorial room. He humanizes the characters. I love that. He pushes so much personality and humor and dry wit into characters that are hardened by what they’ve seen. They’re still human, and they feel exactly as we do, yet they are still extraordinary. Whedon has a gift.
