Recommendations: Saturday  
Hey folks, its Saturday.  Hope most of you guys are having a pleasant day off.  How's your new mentor or new mentee working out for you?  Feedback and new members are always appreciated.

For this week's comment, I bring you an offering from my other fandom: Oz. I wanted to give you a taste of the type of cliffhanger I can comfortably leave.

The story I wrote for Beecher and Keller AU is a nod to the film noir genre (kind of in the same way that Bullet Tracer, one of Calvin's alter egos is).  I took the song, Kissing a Fool by Michael Buble, and wrapped the story around it.  For the record, I'm not sure if I'm going to make a sequel, but here was a fanfiction.net review to the story.

Xmaster: "I loved this story from beginning to end, my only hope is that it is not, in fact, the end, and that you upload another chapter or two because you can't just end it there! Anyway, the format of this story really does it justice, and makes it even more intriguing to read. I like the AU also, it's still interesting and the characters are still recognisable."

By contrast, the recommended story today is not my own.  The recommended story is one that I helped beta recently for one of my favorite writers here on livejournal.  I met lit_gal on tamingthemuse and I simply loved her take on Xander from BtVS.

Now, I have never been a fan of the Sentinel (which is surprising, considering my social sciences background).  I didn't watch it, don't know the characters but when she took a plot of her sentinel fanfic and made new characters, I totally knew I wanted to be involved.

Well, Dreamspinner has accepted "Of Shamans and Warriors" to be published and I got in on the dedication, which is super honoring for me.  So, go to the journal and check out her link to it!

Please remember that these saturday recommendations aren't just for me alone.  Have a good review or beta moment?  Have a story you love?  Feel free to comment and it might be next week's entry!
