Author has written 3 stories for Stargate: Atlantis, and Covert Affairs.
Hi, I'm Lyra, a twenty-something year old from the United States. I am a bit of a perfectionist, so I tend to not publish my fanfiction stories until they are completely finished. Although I have only published one-shots so far, I have been attempting to write something a bit longer in length, but either real life, plot trouble, or a change in fandom interest have been my downfalls so far. Someday I will conquer and post a multi-chapter fic!
I also read quite a bit! I've been an avid book worm ever since I first learned to read, and the world of fanfiction is not new to me, as I have been addicted to the stuff since my teenage years. I especially enjoy reading well written stories and whump. (Yes, I'm one of those people.) I'm not a huge fan of out-of-character stories, but I do enjoy Alternate Universe stories, and there are some surprisingly good ones out there. I'm not really much of a shipper and prefer to follow canon, but I do have favorite pairings sometimes. I do have to admit that I am a Walkerson fan (Annie/Auggie from Covert Affairs), and that is probably the closest I have or will ever get to being a shipper.
I also enjoy beta reading, and love to help fellow authors! I have a college degree, not that having one is important, but I got A's in all of my college english classes. Am I perfect? Heck, no! But sometimes authors just need a second pair of eyes because, no matter how good or not-so-good we are at writing, we all miss things. So, if you need a second pair of eyes for your story, for whatever reason, don't be afraid to PM me! Need someone to bounce ideas off of? I can help with that too! I'm actually pretty nice, and if I can't help you with something, I'll let you know. Maybe you can help me someday with one of my stories as well. That all being said, here's a list of fandoms that I feel I have enough knowledge in to be able to beta:
Bonanza, Numb3rs, Emergency!, Covert Affairs, Doctor Who (haven't seen classic version yet), Sherlock (BBC), Merlin, Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis
The only categories that I won't beta are vampires and slash. I've tried them, and they're just not my cup of tea. :-)
