Australian beta for Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries?
looking sharp you two, tandem, phryne and jack, mfmm
Hi, everybody!

Is there anyone out there who'd help me out with Australia-picking and betaing a Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries fic in the next couple of weeks? Pretty please? I'd be happy to return the favor or repay your generosity somehow.

This same entry also appears on Dreamwidth, at http://innie-darling.dreamwidth.org/444384.html.

I cannot help with this, not being Australian, but: Miss Fisher's fic! I am excited!

I know, right? Why is EVERYONE not writing MFMM fic?

I think it's the combination of Australia + 1920s. Either one, people could deal with, but together it's just intimidating.

That's probably exactly the problem, which is unfortunate. But there are always modern AUs!

Want me to pass the word along on tumblr and see if anybody would be interested...?

Oh! That would be wonderful - thank you!

(Also, I need to tell you the story of MY MOTHER encouraging me to write fanfic for MFMM so that she can get more Phryne and Jack. I nearly swallowed my tongue.)

Ha, oh my god, does your mom know???

And yes! I'll post tomorrow when tumblr is a bit more busy.

No! She knows I write, that I won't publish what I'm writing, and that I have an online "writer's group," but that's it - she thinks I'm crafting original fiction and it's only my stubbornness that keeps me from being the next J.K. Rowling.

But she's OBSESSED with Phryne ("she's so awesome!") and Jack ("he's so handsome!") and when we finished our one-day marathon of season 2 and she realized there was no more canon for her to devour (currently), she started casting about for other ways to get her fix. It was alarmingly hilarious.

I don't know how you want to do it - I'm fine with you including my email address in your post, or you can point them to this post. Thank you again!

Just posted it, I'll let you know if anybody responds!

I'm Australian, but I'm afraid I've never watched it so I don't know how much help I can be - but I'm happy to try if you don't find anyone. I'm seeing people being fannish about it everywhere so maybe I should check it out? I deliberately avoided it because I tried the first couple of books years ago and unfortunately they're AWFUL.

Oh! That is awfully kind of you - I just might take you up on that!

I've also read some of the books now, and I agree that they are fairly terrible, but the show is so different and so much better that it's pretty much its own thing. I definitely recommend the show highly. I can help you out with acquiring episodes, if you like? If you want to see the first ep without downloading anything, someone put it up here.

You're writing MFMM fic? YAY \o/ I love your Sherlock stuff (you write John so well). I am Australian and love MFMM, but I'm from a different state to Phryne and co, and don't know my 1920's history, so I'm not sure how much help I'd be even with the Australian-picking. But I am very excited that you're writing fic in another of my fandoms :)

Aww, thank you so much! (John is my very favorite, hmmm, I guess that shows!) I think I'm squared away with the Australian beta, but thanks - now I just need to finish writing the story and hope it lives up to expectations!
