Do you know any non-native speaker of English that writes fanfiction for manga / anime fandoms and might be willing to participate in a research project? They don't really have to do anything except give me permission to analyze their (unbetaed) fanfic and quote small snippets of it in my research (which may or may not be published - it's my PhD thesis). I would do my best to maintain anonymity, like I did with my previous research of course.

If you know any friendly manga / anime communities here on LJ, feel free to point me there so that I might contact the managers :)

Thank you kids!!

PS: If you could share this message on your LJ and link it back to my journal would also be immensely appreciated!

I don't know if the Beckett / Regina fanfic will ever get finished, I am so fucking busy and sleep-deprived at the moment that writing is not an option and I really want to cross 'fanfic' off my to do list share a snippet of my work in progress with you.

270 words, Castle and Beckett, G.

Being a space nomad/refugee also means that trivial things such as looks and appereance, clothes, jewels and hairdos lose their importance, and yet Laura always manages to look awesome, even when she shouldn't.

Among other things, Vala has a wonderful wardrobe. She's 360° awesome!

I could not find an entire song for Roslin, oddly enough. Guiding the survivors of a barely missed genocide to a new home while dealing with petty political play and an untreatable illness appears not to be a very popular topic with songwriters. However, I want to highlight a few lines from Bette Davis Eyes that remind me of her:

She'll take a tumble on you
roll you like you were dice
until you come up blue

The song itself is overtly sexual and inappropriate to describe Laura, but I feel that image of the dice fits the manipulative streak we see from day one and throughout the series.
She's expert and subtle with friends and rivals; she has them where she wants them without them even realizing it; she lies through her teeth and she's not afraid to break promises made to her war enemies.

Quetesh. I always found that aspect of Vala fascinating. Not many people become hosts to blood-thirsty Goa'uld and live to tell the tale. Unfortunately, in the wake of Goa'uld defeat and the Ori threat, that particular subject was breached only tangentially, in The Powers that Be and Memento Mori, as well as in Continuum.

I was very pleasantly surprised about how the issue was addressed in the SG1 novel Roswell (Whitelaw and Fallon), which I absolutely recommend.

Today I bring you a fanfic about the time Vala was still host to Quetesh. It's femslash, nc-17 (hey, it's the goddess of sex we're talking about), pairing up Vala-Quetesh with Sarah Gardner-Osiris
