Hello 
I'm new (although I've been reading your fics for a long time!!) and this is the first time I feel bold enough to write a fic myself. English is not really my first language so is anyone interested in being my beta?
I'm planning on a fic starring our favorite pairing (guess who?) : it should be multi chaptered so please help me!!!
More details if you wish to read my 'poor writing'

Many thanks to this community
