Scary scary crossovers, part deux

Oh, fuck.

You know that horrifying NCIS/WW crossover I talked about in my last post? Well, I e-mailed the author, letting her know that she had one strike against her. Two more, and all her stuff gets bahleeted.

She e-mailed me back. She claims that when she was a senior in high school, she wrote a paper on education, and after that, four college professors asked her to teach their students how to write papers.

This is my favorite part, though:

So yes I can Write Im also a published poet.....Also Iam handicapped.

o_O

What the bloody hell does one have to do with the other?

And now she's asked me if I'd beta for her. I think I'd rather have red-hot pokers shoved into my eye sockets.

How do I say that politely?

Ma'am, yes, ma'am! (But I'll only be on for fifteen minutes. We have an all-hall meeting at eight, and then I have drama rehearsal until 10:30.)

Nothing, but you knew that already.

What I say when someone asks me to beta and I don't want to is that I'm overcommitted with betas as it is and can't see my way clear to taking on anyone more in the future. Then I wish the person good luck finding someone else to beta and breathe a huge sigh of relief.

Oh My Goddess

A real life Mary Sue???? I thought such creatures were only to be found *inside* fandoms, in their characters.

/shakes head/

Although, I *have* had a college prof keep one of my papers to show in his future classes but I've never ever had any of them ask me to teach the class that they are like, y'know, *paid* to teach and have the creds to do so.

I got an email, too.
Basically the same story. How she is disabled and how she taught english, that one of her papers got really good grades and bla bla bla.

but my favorite part?
so unless you have the guts to talk to me one on one don't ever insult anyone like that again least of all me because I will not just sit here and take it!

Is it wrong of me that I almost want her to start slinging mudd at me publically?

(btw, I'm still confused about the not talking one on one part. I wrote a private email to her with my real email addy. So... ???)
