My story, I Chose You, is a BBC Robin Hood (2006) AU story featuring Guy of Gisborne and Marian Knighton. It is currently published at Archive of Our Own.

I especially recommend the stories that I have helped beta:

Prelude in C by AllTheOtherNamesAreUsed (a wonderful pre-Twilight, Canon story - it's just beautifully written!)
A Fork in the Road by Janewithay (Alternate Universe, "New Moon" with a Twist! - now complete)
Rising Dream, Fallen Star by MrsShortHand (All Human, ExB, currently on hiatus)

Links to these stories (or their authors) can be found in my "favorites" lists.

Congratulations to AllTheOtherNamesAreUsed! 'Prelude in C' has won the Vampie Newborn Award for Bloody Brilliant (Best Overall) (1-50 reviews/chapter)! This is a well deserved award for an exceptional piece of story telling. You will feel like you're reading the story of Carlisle, Edward, and Esme for the first time, yet it is clearly in canon. This is a story even Stephenie Meyer would enjoy!

My favorite pet peeves:

Nauseous vs. Nauseated Do you know the difference? Most authors don’t.

The difference in meaning between nauseated and nauseous is similar to the difference between the words poisoned and poisonous. A person who feels sick to their stomach is nauseated. Whatever it is that is making them feel that way is nauseous. For example, sour milk is nauseous and makes you feel nauseated when you smell it. A person would never say, "I feel poisonous" (unless they have a mouthful of venom, ha ha), so they would never say, "I feel nauseous." I hope this helps!

Reign or rein?

Substitute the word "rule/ruled." If the sentence still makes sense, use reign/reigned. Otherwise, you should use rein, which suggests guidance and control. Reign refers to the dominance and power of a head of state, a king, or a ruler of some kind.

Tethered by Dolphen reviews
"Marry me now. Make it the last thing we do. Let's steal that from them at least." […] It was as if I could read Guy's soul, and what I saw at this very instant made me make the gesture which changed the rest of our lives.
