BetaReader: I'm in need of a new BetaReader although Flo is still a hero for reading what she did, so if you've got a keen eye and a lot of knowledge in the English language (as well as the obvious love of Eldershipping) don't hesitate to drop me a line (private message). I'll eternally love anyone who steps up to the role.

Introduction:

My name is Sam (or you can use my pen-name Solent if you prefer). I'm new to the whole FanFiction scene but I'm eager and ready to learn. I've been reading and "writing" (I use the word 'writing' liberally) FanFiction on and off for the past year or so, and recently I noticed a few gaps in the kinds of stories I wanted to see (Eldershippy stuff in particular) so I decided to properly join in the foray. I saw that very few Pokémon stories focusing on Eldershipping had been written for a number of years, and I think that there's still a lot of life in that pair that's yet to be explored. I'm also a strong supporter of a couple of other ships, which I'll look into writing about soon. If I find a real passion for this "writing-schtick" (as my Grandfather would say) I might just branch out into other fandoms too. We'll see what happens.

I'm an open-minded and talkative person, big on music, hiking, philosophy, video games and almost anything else, so don't be afraid to drop me a line and say hey! I hope you like what you find in the lists below, if you're looking for more Eldershippy goodness please be sure to check my favourites! If you've got any suggestions of stories I should read, or any challenges/story ideas please send them my way, I'd love to check them out!
