Default Dear Sir or Madam could you rec a story?

Specifically the Beatles paired up with an original female character. It doesn't have to be strictly romance either, but it's been difficult to find well written stories. I've read a handful of ones that I truly enjoy the two big ones being 'Into My Life' by Diane Huberty and 'True Love Ways' by dasliebchenkind. If you are familiar with those stories and can recommend something along those lines it'd be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Well Mary Sues are a bit common that involve Beatles characters, but personally I like the ones you mentioned already.

A lot of the stuff I'm finding is old. I've checked out Beatles fan fiction communities on several sites. The one on LJ, BFFD seems to be somewhat active, but I haven't found too much of anything that I like on that site. At least not in the same way I did with the stories I mentioned in my original post.

That's true. I like the stuff in McLennonLand, and some of the others.

I would recommend...

Rooftops Archives - if you haven't read them already - http://rooftopsessions.com/Archive.html

Mary Spollen's stories (Paul fan fics) http://fanfic.o-f.com/index.html

Yesterday, Today And Tomorrow by Cream Tangerine - http://fabfix.wordpress.com/category...-and-tomorrow/ (That's one of my all time faves!)

Or you could check the Romance section of the Beatles Fan Fiction Directory - http://www.beatlesfanfictiondirector...re/romance.php (Quite a lot are in progress or incomplete though).

Also, Wattpad seems to be a new 'arena' for Beatles fan fiction.

Thanks! I'm not 'plugged into' wattpad, but I gather that's where people are going to post their Beatles stories?

A few of my friends are on wattpad from Beatle fiction fandom and I'm there too though I haven't posted a story yet. Same with Tumblr though I've got some stories there. Tumblr just doesn't allow for communication like other mediums.
Right now, I'm looking to see how popular wattpad becomes with my friends. a lot are on Deviantart but only a few of the best really get any activity.

Miss O'Dell I checked out wattpad. Thanks for turning me onto it. I haven't found anything that's something I'd be interested in following, but I'll keep my eyes open.

That's alright. I haven't found much of great quality yet either, but it's promising! As it grows I think there will be more. :)
