Fandom: Pokemon Gameverse (HGSS, Kanto focus, with frequent mention of other gens/regions)
Characters/Pairings: Green/Red. Supporting cast includes Professor Oak, Kris, Silver, Leaf, Daisy Oak, Red's Mom, Red's Pikachu, Green's Eevee, and a whole plethora of OCs. The fic takes place 13 years after the events of the games, so the characters are all a little older.
Rating & Warnings: The fic is rated T. Major themes are trauma recovery, difficult/fraught family situations, near death experiences, second chances, the ocean, and forgiveness. Overall, the fic is meant to be uplifting rather than dark.
Estimated Fic Length: 30-35k, probably? Four out of the five parts are written and it's 25k so far. I mostly need a beta for parts 3 (7k) and 4 (8k), and maybe part 5 when it's finished. Though if you wanted to look at the first two parts I wouldn't say no...
Notes: You can read the first chapter here if you'd like a preview. I'm looking for a beta with knowledge of the pokemon universe, who would be willing to give feedback on everything ranging from wordiness, word choice, spelling, and grammar to pacing, character voices, repetition, and anything else you'd like really. I adore constructive criticism, please critique me to within an inch of my life! But please don't be mean about it, that's all.

I'd be more than happy to beta your fic in return! I mostly hail from anime fandom (you can see the list of anime I'm familiar with here), I also know homestuck even though that fandom is dead, and I live in pokemon fandom too, of course. Alternatively, if you only want spelling/grammar/etc. help and a knowledge of the universe isn't necessary, I'm willing to lend a hand. I'm especially useful if you need medical fact-checking, as I am a health professional.

You can leave a comment here, or my e-mail is passerine.cloud@gmail.com. Thank you very much for considering!

Hello! I've caught up on tags again to prepare for the new year.

Another reminder that I won't add a tag for a specific fandom until at least two different people post about that fandom on the comm. If you don't see your fandom in the tag list, you're proably looking for a catch-all tag:
  • fandom: tv shows (other)
  • fandom: movies (other)
  • fandom: books (other)
  • fandom: video games (other)
  • fandom: webcomics (other)
  • fandom: web series (other)
  • fandom: animanga series
I regularly go through the catch-all tags to see if there are any doubles that need to be moved to a tag of their own. If you want to get your own fandom tag faster, encourage your friends to use this comm too! :D

I've also added the new tag "fandom: star trek (reboot)", to try and differentiate the newer movies from the older tv series and movies. We've not yet had more than one person asking for betas in each individual star trek series, which is why they're still using the catch-all "fandom: star trek series."

If there's anything else I can do to make the comm's tag system easier to use, please let me know. Thank you for using [community profile] betaplease and happy new year! Please remember to tag your posts!

Beta here!

If anyone's looking for a beta reader, I'd be happy to help.
 
Fandoms: Pokemon (not including manga), various anime (but not ALL anime--ask me beforehand if you're not sure), Harry Potter, Twilight, assorted classic novels and plays (ask for clarification)

Strengths: My main strength is probably in my thoroughness--I can and will comment on anything and everything I have an opinion on, and I'm good at providing advice about what I think is the best direction to take a story. My spelling and grammar are also typically flawless so I'll be able to help with that.

Limits: I don't read anything explicitly kinky, and I'd rather not read stories that are romantic without any additional plot to them. I also don't like to read stories that depict graphic renditions of crime, abuse, rape, etc., though extreme violence in a wartime or similar setting is fine. Also, ABSOLUTELY NO RPF!

Other notes: I'd prefer not to beta read a type of story that's already been done many times before. I expect the stories I beta to have some originality to them. I'd also like people I beta read for to be making a conscious effort to improve, as opposed to just wanting an editor.
